Me.

I do dry kibble in the morning soaked in water for about 15 minutes and an extra like tin sardines, yoghurt, goats milk, blueberries or egg plus all their supplements they get.

In the evening they get only raw, a typical week night for me is 4 nights of BARF & little bit of K9 freeze dried green lamb tripe, 1 night of ox heart, 1 night of ox larynx and some trachea (throat), 1 night of chicken carcass & an organ like liver. I also try and give Harry raw pancreas each night for his EPI.

I try and leave 12 hours for digestion reasons, but sometimes is only about 11 between the feeds.

I have always feed raw and kibble but used to combine it until I read about the importance of digestion and how they digest different foods.

I have noticed their coats are very shiny and soft, they don't scratch as much, they seem calmer, their raw poops are smaller.

I too am considering going raw all the time.
