The average kibble is full of nutrients.
Read the label. Look for a food that has a protein as the first ingredient, not a grain. The best kibbles have a single source of protein, such as lamb or chicken. Grain-free diets exist, but carbohydrates are required for energy, and the choice of grain is important since some dogs have sensitivities to wheat, corn, or soybeans. While dry kibble can sustain a pet, a thriving pet needs more balance. The truth is that some commercial foods can cause obesity, diabetes, cancer, and allergies or allergic reactions, such as skin rash.
