1/2 Raw 1/2 Kibble feeding plan help. Syndey Help!

We were talking in the previous thread and Im curious what you would suggest for a feed plan. I want to bring a half raw diet into the household. I have a 6r old female that has been on kibble her whole life, and an 8week old male. Ive been feeding 3 times daily. Half egg/shell each mixed with portioned kibble for breakfast, chicken w kibble for lunch, red meat w kibble for dinner.. all meals are smaller portions. Please let me know what you think?

I still stick with the fact that raw food and kibble need to be fed at separate feedings in order to digest properly. That being said...

If your gonna feed kibble too, then what your feeding is fine. If you are gonna feed eggs everyday then I would suggest feeding just the yolk (and shell if you like) the uncooked whites contain adivin that can cause a biotin deficiency when fed too often.

I also don't do mixed meat feeds, I pick one meat per meal, for the same reason that I don't like the idea of feeding kibble and raw meats together. Wild animals usually don't dine on a variety of meats at the same time when feeding in the wild...they kill they eat.

I would suggest a good probiotic to combat the roller coaster of good and bad bacteria you would create by feeding a raw/kibble diet. Dogs stomachs are highly acidic (proper pH level of 1) this in conjunction with their short digestive tracts are what allow the dog to eat things like raw chicken and meat and not get sick. When you feed kibble, in order to preserve shelf life, they are often loaded with preservatives and ANTI-bacterials that in turn also kill off the good bacteria in the dogs stomach. This is why dogs will "detox" when switching to a raw diet, because their systems adapt to the kibble and the natural system of the dog(in breaking down meat) is no longer useful, so that system has to be built back up.

Here is a probiotic I recommend and use...it is very potent and only requires a 1/4 tsp per 25lbs of dog, so it lasts a while too.

Digestive Enhancer

I do hope that helps. Always remember to do your research, because I am not an expert or professional, I just research, and learn from my mistakes and the mistakes of others A lot of raw dieting is trial and error, you will over time, find what works for you and your dogs...there is no perfect diet, and everyone you ask will tell you something different.

sounds good. is there somwhere online I could purchase the Digestive Enhancer? I think Ill take your advice and stop feeding kibble at same time as raw meats. Ill stick to half egg yolk each in morning including shell, and remove the kibble from their other meals. Im deffinatlely a novice with this stuff. I appreciate all of your opinions
