Raw and Kibble?

Postby pitbulliest » Thu Sep 15, 2005 3:05 pm

Is it ok to feed raw one day and kibble the next? As long as its not on the same day? Or is this not a good idea?

i can't help you there.. but i tried feeding raw one day, and kibble the next. i don't know if thats good or not, because Bishop would not touch the kibble after he got some of that raw goodness.

btw, i'm feeding kibble now, and raw only once a week.

I feed kibble in the morning, raw at night. I think it's fine as long as you're not mixing the kibble and raw at the same time.

It's fine, even to feed it in one day.

That's what we do... Usually one meal raw, one kibble per day, but it's always flexible. Some days two raw meals, some days two kibble (with supplements... yogurt, eggs, for example). It depends on what we have available and time restraints, etc.

i feed my boy nv kibble and their raw patties. i alternate every other day with a patty in the morning and kibble at night then the next day just kibble, and etc. I would feed just raw or more raw but its expensive. he has been loving this diet and looks great. :headbang:

The only reason you want to avoid feeding them very close together is because one digests more quickly than the other. I can't remember which one is which. But it can deprive the dog of nutrients.

The raw digests much quicker than the kibble.
