The number of dogs eating kibbles grows every year. The number of dogs with cancer grows every year.
Unfortunately, it’s not a coincidence. And there are more diet-related health visuals because of kibbles. Of course, you will read other articles online telling you the opposite. However, here are some unarguable facts. Firstly, kibbles are cooked at very high temperatures (250-350 degrees) which destroys the natural nutritional value of the food. Flavour enhancers, synthetic nutrients and artificial colouring are then added to the kibbles. Secondly, all kibbles contain preservatives to give them a long shelf life. Thirdly, there are several potential carcinogens in each kibble, including heterocyclic amines. They occur in the cooking process we’ve already mentioned. They are linked to mutations in animal cells, which can ultimately lead to cancer.
The last point, which is an obvious one. Kibbles are not something a dog would naturally eat. Their body is not made to digest this kind of synthetic dry food. They need a diet that is closer to that of their ancestors, with more fresh, moist and natural ingredients.
