They are straining because there is not enough natural oil in the food. Consider doing what I do, when I'm giving my dog holistic food like S&C, is hydrate it with homemade meat broth and I even add 2 tablspoons home made broth over that too. So for dinner, when cooking your meat, just cut out a piece, fill up a small pan of water and let it soft boil.
The smell fills up the kitchen, the dogs love it and when my dogs see me bringing their food to them, it's so funny to see them jumping up and down and even with their tongue licking their lips. Oh - the joys of having "I love you" dogs. LOL
You will also see a dramatic difference in the dog's coat - sheen and soft.
