GETTING TO KNOW YOUR RAGDOLL

One of the biggest domestic breeds, they are well-mannered, playful and are able to learn quickly. Their big, square mouths can swallow normal kibble whole, which is why we have designed a special, larger kibble shape that encourages them to chew.

Highly digestible proteins with an adapted fibre content including psyllium and prebiotics promote a balance in the intestinal flora.
