Antioxidants will be added to your dog’s kibble in two forms:
Now, I know it looks like I’ve forgotten to mention how kibble can be better for your dog’s teeth than canned food.
My dogs are very fit and active (they walk 2 miles/day including my almost 11 year old lab) and yet they eat less than the recommended guideline on almost any dog food. We just were in for annual checkups and blood/urine panels and everything was great. My 80 lb dog only gets the equivalent of about 2.5-2.75 cups of food a day as the foods I feed are higher in calories by almost twice what Hill’s kcal/cup is. I feed a combination of grain free kibble/cannned and raw/fresh daily.
Best food (Kibbles) with fish as the protein are the best to feed for dogs with skin problems, have a look at “Canidae” you have Canidae in the UK look at their Pure Formulas Pure Sea is excellent for skin problems & very high in omega fatty acids for their skin.. here’s the Canidae site also their kibbles are guaranteed money back..

Millions of dogs eat kibble, and millions of dogs fillthe waiting rooms of veterinarians, bad breath and all. These petssuffer from dermatitises of all sorts, or from cancers, joint problems,heart problems, kidney problems, digestive problems ("lack ofenzymes"), liver problems, pancreas problems, coat problems, toothproblems, anal gland problems, glandular disorders, allergies, and softdoughy bodies brought on by eating a grain-based, artificial,highly-processed, additive-filled food touted as "healthy" for yourdog. Thousands of dogs die from diet-induced diseases like bloat eachyear (and that is not to say all diseases are caused by diet, but manyof them link strongly with processed diets and diet-induced periodontaldisease. Refer to Raw Meaty Bones for a more in-depthdiscussion.), and yet the industry keeps on churning out artificial petfoods and vets keep recommending them to their clients.Millions of dogs are eating kibble, suffering from badteeth and stinky breath, decreased longevity and quality of life, andunderlying health problems. Millions of dogs are being maintained on anartificial, grain-based diets containing synthetic vitamins andminerals plus a myriad of chemical preservatives and additives—thecollective effects of which have NEVER been researched. The key here isthat dogs are merely existing. Sure, kibble (even "premium" kibble) issufficient for keeping your dog alive, but is it the best, mostappropriate food for your dog?2.) It still is an unnatural food for our pets. Ourdogs and cats are not designed to eat processed food pellets regardlessof how good of quality these processed food pellets are. A premiumkibble would be like us eating a 'premium' cereal day in and day out;the premium cereal has to be better for us than one of those cheapercereals, right (think of Raisin Bran versus Captain Crunch)?
All foods that are available for dogs (wet food or kibble food) have certain nutritional benefits. The typical commercial kibble food contains the nutrients a healthy dog needs: proteins, fats, fibers, carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins. A healthy dog can do well on dry food and he won't need any other dietary supplements. You should know that the kibble food only contains 5 to 12 percent moisture, which is not enough to keep the dog hydrated, so you will need to ensure the dog gets plenty of fresh water.
