Commercial raw for 8 wk old

I just got my GSD puppy at 8 weeks and her parents have always been fed on raw and
she is also on it and the breeder gave me a weeks worth of what she has been eating.
I actually wanted to feed raw anyway so happy there

It is a commercial food from

I'd prefer a commercial as it is a lot easier for myself and family etc. The breeder
said she does not put any additives in with this food. Is the puppy getting the right
nutrients just from this commercial diet and no other additives ?

The breeder also says she puts a handful of a good quality kibble food in with the
raw but I read that shouldn't mix the 2 due to different digestive speeds etc.

I just want to make sure the puppy during its young growing gets what she requires.

New to this Forum (July 20th, 2016) so be gentle...

I add carbs, brown rice, sweet potatoes, quinoa, pumpkin to my dogs prepared raw. I think that's especially a good idea for a young puppy so it doesn't eat too much protein and calcium. I honestly wouldn't feed a young puppy a raw diet, but what do I know.
