I'm really not a fan of kibble and raw diets. That can easily cause a lot of digestive problems. They are completely different in preparation which causes your dogs tummy to always be "confused"... you can also give your dogs an over load on nutrients. That's my personal experience... if you go raw why feed kibble? Raw is supposed to be a quality controlled entire diet, not a supplement.
Confused tummy? That is non-sense. A dog in the wild will eat anything. If you keep rotating they wont get the runs. It's when they eat the same (brand & flavor) domesticated kibble over and over for there whole life is why they are sensitive. Put it to you this way. Its like a vegetarian who after years of eating veggies every day decides a nice medium-rare bacon wrapped filet mignon sounds like a good idea what do you think it will do to there bowels. If you switch the dog kibble brand every bag it doesn't mess with them neither will switching back and forth from raw to kibble. I have seen many beautiful healthy dogs on Ol' Roy and sickly dogs on Orijin. My dog is spoiled and I love her very much but don't break the bank for food is all I am saying. Check the first 5 ingredients of your kibble and make sure its not cardboard and what not the dog will be fine.

You should feed 2-3% of the dogs IDEAL weight, daily. 80% of the meal should be protein(meat), 10% bone, and 10% organ. Split that amount into 2 meals if you feed twice a day and 3 if you feed 3 times a day. There is a good yahoo group on this topic. I'm not sure if I can post that info here so you can pm me for that info. Good luck with whatever way you choose!

Uhhh that makes zero sense.... dogs in the wild do not change kibble to kibble or kibble to raw. They change protien sources, roughage sources, fat sources not the preperation of these items. The preperation of a Raw/barf diet is just as important as what actually goes into it. When kibble is made, they take most of the moisture out of the food, leaving a low protien to water intake ratio which over time can bring out kidney and liver issues. I am fully aware of the variety I need and do give the dogs who eat raw. You cannot always rely on what the back of the bag says. Dog food manufacturers are only required by law to update their ingredients list 1x a year. Some up date 2x a year, but they for darn sure change everything that goes into them, including fillers, grains many many times a year to insure that they get the most bang for their buck.

My point is that dogs eat whatever they can find in the wild. Not everybody can afford to feed raw, me being one of them even though I would love to. My argument was the confused tummy. I agree with the part of your post that is if you feed raw why go to kibble, but a confused tummy? really? its a dog, they will eat cow paddies, dead things, rotten food, pretty much anything they can get there mouths on in a feral situation.

If you are going to feed raw. Don't let cost deter you. Seek out ways. There's a ton of opportunities out there. Here in Hawaii I pay around $1.00/pound for chicken. If you go to a supermarket take note of the expiration date. If you go on the eve of that date you'll get the same chicken marked down 50%. There may also be co-ops in your area. You can even look on craigslist for people cleaning out their freezer. Maybe you can get friendly with your local butcher for his scraps. Just endless opportunities. Don't give up. If there a will, there's a way!
