Yes I think they suggest you stick to one protein at a time in the beginning to test for allergies.
Otherwise most mix proteins, I do all the time - bit of sheep liver, bit of ox heart, bit of pork, can sardines...........

|I_LOVE_MY_MIKKO||The only argument that I have ever heard against mixing protein sources is for when you are starting raw, so that if there is a reaction of any sort you know what caused it. I mix protein sources every day!|

Mixing Protein Sources
Hi, all. I'm an avid raw BARF style feeder for about 7 months now. My girl is doing great on it, 9 months old, no issues. I'm just curious if anyone has heard the reason behind why some people advise not to mix protein sources in a meal. Now that I think about it I've read several articles saying basically the same thing but have never heard an explanation that made sense.
I have ALWAYS mixed protein sources since she was a baby. I don't see it as necessary so much as it's just easier to ensure balance and variety over a week for me. I've always thought the opposite, that mixing proteins in one meal actually might make the utilization more effiicient of vitamins/minerals/amino acids than giving all chicken, or pork, or whatever in one meal.
Thanks in advance.
