Feeding raw with kibble
« on: July 12, 2017, 09:16:57 PM »
I have a source of raw meat available to me and have been wondering if it possible to feed raw as a treat or perhaps a meal every once in awhile with kibble. I cannot afford or think it a good idea to for me to feed pure raw. But would like to use what is available to me. So thought I would ask everyone opinion on this. I cannot find a good source of information online.

We feed our dogs kibble in the morning and raw in the evenings. As I understand it, canine tummies don't process both well, when fed simultaneously.

When I fed mostly raw I fed veggies, meats and kibble all together. I've heard since that you're not supposed to do that, something to do with enzymes in the stomach.

I never had an issue feeding kibble and raw together. I got all the benefits of raw, no fleas, better coat quality, fewer allergies and firm bowel movements so I assume they were digesting it all well.

I don't know, it's been a while since I fed raw. When I did everyone was feeding kibble and raw together. Someone who currently feeds raw would probably be a better resource.
