Why is True Colours kibble the size it is?
True Colours kibble that 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 True Colours kibble?
Meats and vegetables are subject to natural colour variations and True Colours is 100% natural, no artificial colours or dyes are used in any of our recipes. Although some other manufacturers use colours and dyes to create consistently coloured kibble, our animal nutritionists can maintain relatively consistent kibble without the use of such unnecessary additives.
