kibble and raw??

i was wondering is it ok to feed both kibble and raw? friend of mine feeds kibble in the a.m. raw for lunch(chicken&rice w/ egg), kibble for dinner. i told him i was going to check the out because hes telling me that i should do the same whats the best route as far as a mixture of both? my girl is on canidae all stages i mix an egg 1x a day usually in the a.m. i just want to give her the best, but i dont want to give her too much or too less. should i stay the same or what?????

My concern is why is your friend feeding three times aday?
Dog so not need to eat that much unless it is a pup unders 4 months of age and that even to high of age.
It is fine to feed both. Now some are going to tell you that you can not mix kibble and raw as they digest differently .. well that is correct and incorrect. Digestion is the same in any system. But the difference is that RAW is already hydrated w/ moisture so no need to add water. Well on KIBBLE you should add water to start the hydration process. You must remember if you take a piece of kibble put it into a small amount of water and watch is grow. Thats what happens in the dogs system and this is why dogs can get bloat, a possible deadly problem b/c the system can not digest in a proper time so the body sits on the food that is in the stomach. Dogs need to only eat what is necessary for there system to sustain itself.
So with that if you want to add RAW into your dogs kibble please remember to add water as well. Let the kibble sit for a few minutes, once you see the swelling start you can go and feed the meal. All food at that time will digest the same. But also remember to lower your count of how much kibble you feed. B/c by adding more protein (meat) into the meal the dog system has to work hard to break down the protein.

If you need anymore info. please dont hesitate to ask

All can be RAW. But do not give large amount of Salmon due to the oil in it. the best is to give it at least 3 times a week. Chicken you can give everyday.

Every things allright she loves the mixture of raw and kibble i just give it to her(mix) once a day usually in the a.m., and regular kibble at night. i know one thing shes full of energy ever since i started giving her the raw in the a.m. i can tell the difference, shes also down to"pooping" once a day, is this normal, its also much more solid now. ive been thinking about 100% raw. Can i get some suggestions on what type of raw diet canbe given, or does anyone have any good links to a good raw diet for pitta. thx.

During the competition season thats what we feed. Half raw, half kibble and we feed it together one time a day in the morning. Never had any trouble.
