Ground Beef (cooked) & Wellness Super 5

As stated in title , i have been feeding Blitz this mixture at a 50/50 ratio for the past couple weeks.Is this bad for my 13 week old GSD.He looks good , nice hourglass shape. He loves it of course and it is helping him gain weight as he was a little underweight . I'm just concerned i might be creating an imbalance in his diet. He currently weighs in at approx 28 lbs. and need your expert opinions on this diet. His coat is softer and shines big time!! Is he getting enough minerals and nutrients this way as opposed to a straight wellness super 5 diet. In this pic taken 6-1-10 at 10 weeks he weighed 18 lbs so in the last three weeks he has gained 10 lbs. I will regulate amount as to not make him overweight for his frame .Thanks , this place is a wealth of info !!

I do similar with my 15 week old boy, but I feed the burger raw always, mixed with his Orijen kibble. He gets the raw burger every other day.

Is raw better? Is there any chance of salmonella or anything else nasty that would hurt him from raw beef of chicken, or anything else for that matter . thanks bro

Raw won't hurt a dog. Peple feed strictly raw, chicken, pork, fish, etc. Raw is more natural and likely has more enzymes and nutritional value than cooked.

I have read many times NEVER feed raw and kibble together. They don't digest at the same rate.

I know a lot of people believe that, but I personally don't and have yet to see any credible scientific evidence to support the theory. I also don't think it's an issue at all if you feed a very high protein grainless kibble. And... LOL... the poops and the dogs overall health will tell the whole story.
