Haven’t decided on the best way to feed your dog? Some people think that cooking food at home is the most reliable, healthy and controlled act there is and in fact there is some truth in this. When we cook for our dog you know exactly what the quality of the ingredients used is.
But it is also true that dry food, also known as kibble, is the most complete and balanced food available, capable of not only satisfying the dog’s taste but also meeting his nutritional needs. Wet food, on the other hand, which can be particularly appetising for Fido, seems to be incomplete in terms of nutritional intake.
Types of kibble
There are many different types of kibble, but how can you make the right choice? First of all, it is essential to know how to choose the right one, which tends to vary according to the breed of dog, its size (which also affects the size of the kibble, large for medium or large dogs, small for mini or toy breeds), its age and its state of health. It is clear that I will provide kibble suitable for puppies, but also for adult dogs and seniors, for overweight dogs or dogs with allergies. Essentially, each dog will have its own type of kibble, which can be single-protein, hypoallergenic or even grain-free, created to combat food intolerances and sensitivities. If you want to give your furry friend a more ancient diet, then you will have to choose types of kibble with proteins and low in refined cereals. Remember that while kibble is a complete meal for your dog, it is also possible to combine it with wet food, which is particularly tasty for your dog, even if it is less complete from a nutritional point of view. You should also remember that kibble should not be given to your dog as a snack, but simply as a meal that can also be divided into two portions per day to improve digestion.
