Kibble diets are by and large the most common form of pet food. Kibble is convenient, long-lasting, and easy to store. While it is not the “perfect” diet for dogs and cats, a high quality meat-based kibble is a safe and healthy way to feed your pet. When choosing a kibble, beware of “gimmicks”. Breed-specific formulas, weight loss formulas, varying shapes and textures, and many other claims are usually marketing ploys. The proof is in the ingredient list and the integrity of the manufacturer.

Pros

  • Convenient. Easy to serve and store. Requires no extra precautions or refrigeration.
  • Longer shelf life. Can be purchased in larger quantities meaning less trips to the store.

Cons

  • Low moisture content. Not enough moisture means dogs and cats must drink more. This can be particularly difficult to accomplish for cats.
  • Higher carbohydrate content. The processing of kibble requires a “binder” – to hold the bits of food together. This requires are starch of some kind, which means it has a higher carb content than other foods.
