I see that some people like using kibble, some like using raw meat, while others like using some of both. I choose to use some of both and here are some of the reasons why.
I like to add raw meat to the dogs diet since I know at least it is a good meat source. True I have no idea what steroids, chemicals have been added to the meat but I do know that it is a piece of chicken. When it comes to kibble, i have no clue what kind of chicken was added to the meal at rendering time. The chicken could have been sitting in the sun all day long in a pile of floor sweeping.
So I took a different approach to feeding my dogs and it has made a world of difference. I feed kibble in the morning and raw/home cooked at night. The purpose of the kibble is to make sure they get the needed vitamins and minerals. That allows me the opportunity to be selective with what meat I give them. Very rarely do you see fat dogs while on a raw diet.
