Is there a dry dog food out there that can match BlackHawk for quality and value that comes in a large kibble size that I can look at as an alternative? What implications might this canine palatability study have for the pet food industry? If you’re a pet food manufacturer, knowing all sizes of dogs tend to prefer larger kibble means you may be able to reduce the numbers of SKUs you have to produce. In addition, while breed and size-specific dog foods are popular, small kibble for small-sized dogs may not yield the best possible palatability results. Our study of 120 dogs of all sizes indicated that when it comes to food, most dogs think like big dogs. Whether small (less than 30 pounds), medium (30.1-54 pounds) or large (more than 54 pounds), the dogs in the study showed us they preferred larger kibble when all other factors are equal.Kibble size isn’t the only reason to feed your best friend food specific to breed size. Appropriate nutrient levels also vary based on whether your dog is small, medium, large or giant. Below, veterinarian Trisha Joyce, DVM, of New York City Veterinary Specialists, weighs in on the importance of size-specific feeding.Small dogs have smaller mouths. Trying to consume largepieces of dry kibble can be difficult for little dogs. If the dog is one of those such as S or , large pieces of kibble canpotentially be a choking hazard. Somedogs, even little ones enjoy their food so much that they basically inhale itrather than chew. Large kibble stuck ina small esophagus can mean a quick trip to the emergency veterinarian.Kibble begins as a dry cooked meal whereas canned food is canned fresh. Kibble is exposed to more heat than canned (destroying nutrients). Worse yet, kibble is linked to kidney and bladder problems in cats, and to bloat, a deadly problem especially for large, broad-chested dogs. It’s also dehydrating. Of course, canned isn’t perfect either. Fresh is best, raw or cooked. Next best is frozen prepared food and then dehydrated and freeze dried foods, all available at better pet stores.
