Can I mix RAW with kibble
I have read some comments that it is not wise to mix raw food and kibble. The RAW diet is appealing to me, but the availability of meat is limited. We live in a relatively small town and Wal-Mart is the only place to get meat.
Ideally, I would like to mix the kibble and raw, though not necessarily at the same time.
Tonight, I mixed the following tonight: (total of apx 8-10 oz)
Fromm puppy kibble
apx 2 oz chicken gizzard and heart mix
apx 2 oz pork spare rib (bone removed)
(pork and gizzard heart mix was chopped in the ninja)
a drizzle of ground beef liquid fat
All ingredients were mixed thoroughly.
He ate almost the entire bowl. I haven't measured exactly, but he has eaten approximately 3 cups of food today, mostly kibble, and a slice of Quiznos prime rib. (He loves to ride with me on errands and is spoiled to getting small treats if I stop for food.)
I want him to be happy and helathy, smart and strong and live a long full life. Although I am not concerned with making him a "health nut" pup. He is my companion and though we will have him formally trained, his only real job is to love his people.
