Not all kibble is the same, therefore not all kibble is “bad.” I hear this generalization regularly, and there isn’t any truth to it. Kibble is a massively diverse type of pet food and no 2 kibble diets are the same, for this reason to claim that kibble as a whole is bad is simply not possible. Just like any type of food, there is a spectrum.
Some factors that affect the quality of a kibble diet:
- Manufacturing processes
- Raw ingredients and how the ingredients work together
- Formulas used and who formulated the diet
- Evidence based and scientific research
