Re: Boiled Chicken every now and then....
The only thing that I would chime in on here is that if you are going to do a partial raw food diet is to feed it separately from the kibble diet.
Raw food takes about 4 to 5 hrs to digest and kibble takes 12 to 15 hrs, therefore, fed together, the raw food would stay in the system considerably longer than is desired.
Cooked food I also feed separate as it passes faster as well. And, by cooking food, you take away a lot of the nutrients that you would by feeding raw, which you can feed with the bone in (chicken and some other meats) and that takes care of the calcium/phosphorous ratios.
(ie: wings and legs = lots of bone so more calcium breasts and thighs have more meat so more phosphorous....)
I feed leg/thigh quarters (chicken wise) mainly and never have an issue....I feed a variety of meat weekly.
I do feed kibble when I travel (or I feed Honest Kitchen, a dehydrated form of raw) and in 4 years have never had an issue with any of the dogs other than a case of loose stool once in a while.
