Mixing this pre-made raw with kibble?

Our ferrets get instinct raw twice a day before their meds.
Mixing this pre-made raw with kibble?-imageuploadedbypg-free1377271649.620684.jpg

I've given sabo some once or twice and he loves it! However it's quite pricy to just feed this. Can I mix some in with his kibble???

I do, my breeder was feeding Nemo - Instinct Raw with some TOTW kibble. I have continued that and he has done fine on it.

I thought it was bad to mix raw and kibble because of the different digestive processes involved?

A bazillion years ago when I fed raw, I was told it was not okay to feed RMBs with kibble, but it was okay to feed muscle meats and organs with kibble. I would assume the bone is the issue, the part that digests at a different rate? I don't remember exactly. Not too helpful.

Yes, this is what I understand too.

We feed raw Instinct but get the larger 8oz patties. It is expensive! We use it for 40-50% of our dog's meals.

It is absolutely fine to mix raw and kibble. I did it for many, many years with Chama and she lived to be 14+ and did not have digestive issues from eating raw and kibble together.

There are also people who say people should not eat raw food (like veggies) and cooked foods together and most of us do that and are just fine too.

I figured I'd use one small one per meal as we feed our ferrets 4 per day. Sabo would get beef and the ferrets chicken
