What is Kibble?
Whether you are an old pet owner or a new one, keeping your dog happy and healthy is a must. Along with the comfy dog bed, toys to play with, and the occasional dog treat. Feeding your dog a healthy diet is one way to express your love and care for them.
After all, dogs provide humans unconditional love and support through ups and downs. And one of the most popular foods that our best buds enjoy is Kibble.
Dry dog and cat food are referred to as Kibble. It is made using meat, grains, legumes, vegetables, and fruits that have been ground up. In a process known as extrusion, these components are mixed. Then, shaped into pellets, and lastly, cooked. Grain is used as a binder in grained dog kibble. This is to keep the ingredients together while they are being mixed. If you feed your dog grain-free Kibble, the binder is made of legumes like chickpeas or another starch.
I guess you are now wondering where these pellets originated. A crumbled biscuit was used to make the first batch of Kibble. This crumbled biscuit was baked and turned into a delightful treat for dogs. All thanks to James Spratt, an electrician, and salesman from Cincinnati.
This dog food, dubbed “Meat Fibrine Dog Cakes,” was the first of its kind. It paved the way for a variety of new dog food products, including dry Kibble. These are little pieces of the ground-up meal. Ingredients were cooked together in liquid form. Then mechanically pushed through an extruder in a process known as “extrusion.”
Dog kibble is more than just a source of consistent nutrition for dogs.
According to the American Kennel Club, the best dog food for your canine companion should match his nutritional demands. Most commercial dog food brands are mainly made to meet the basic dietary requirements for dogs. But it is vital to keep in mind that no two dogs have the exact nutritional needs.
To help you with your kibble shopping, here are the best Kibble brands for your puppy.

I’m a paradox in the world of writing. I love writing but I hate literature. And oh, I like to publish my own book someday, but I haven’t formulated the plot yet.
