raw and kibble digest at different rates.
it takes a lot longer for kibble to digest.
i've heard that feeding them both at the same time increases the chance of salmonella poisoning (but i can't back that up)


yep, your right about that
it takes kibble a good12 hours to digest
raw starts digesting immed, and is completely digested in about 4-5 hours
if the raw gets stuck in the intestines behind the kibble, you will have a bacteria factory in progress and your dogs can become very sick because of it
the reason dogs that eat raw do not get sick from samonella is because of the quick digestion of the raw, but getting stuck behind kibble can change all of that.
best to feed raw or kibble at separate times, good 12 hours in between

I read that cooked turkey skin "can and will" cause pancreatitis. I believe it was on this thread. I would watch her. I would also be looking up the symptoms for pancreatitis. Not to alarm you, but better to be safe than sorry. I am sure she is okay, especially if it was a small amount.

We don't have Thanksgiving here in Ukraine, but Redhead gets turkey now and then. One of his favorites.

she shoudl be fine
some people go overboard and give too much all at once, thus causingg the pancreatitis(alogn with gravye, potatoes, stuffing etc)
it is safest to tell people to not give any
what one peson thinks is a little, is a lot to another

I gave Emma and Ginger the Neck and Other parts. And They barfed out both ends all night and all Friday. My Dad was PISSED!!! So they are now forbidden anything raw at my house.
