Can I mix processed and raw together?
No, definitely not. Processed food moves through your dog’s digestive system more slowly than raw feed. Since dogs evolved eating raw meat and bones, their high stomach acidity breaks down bone content and bacteria very efficiently. If you feed a “kibble” and raw mixture, the “kibble” slows down the digestion of raw and allows the possibility of bacteria being able to flourish. Raw fed dogs are not prone to any higher risks of bacteria since their stomachs are more acidic, meaning bacteria can’t survive.
