Why Man’s Best is the kibble size it is?
We have chosen a medium size kibble that is 11-12mm diameter and round in shape. This size suits all dogs as feeding too large a kibble can create the possibility of causing air way obstruction in smaller dogs. It is also important that the dogs’ teeth penetrate the kibble to achieve a brushing effect. This may help reduce plaque which leads to tartar and encourages good oral health. Also, independent testing has proven that kibble size does not affect palatability.
Why is there sometimes a slight variance in the colour of Man’s Best kibble?
Meats and vegetables are subject to natural colour variations.
Man’s Best is 100% natural and no artificial colours or dyes are used in any of our premium recipes. Although many other manufacturers use colours and dyes to create consistently coloured kibble, our animal nutritionists are able to maintain relatively consistent kibble without the use of such unnecessary additives.
