Can I Feed Processed Foods with the Raw Food diet for Dogs?
We do not advocate combining a raw food diet in the same meal as processed foods. The digestive rate for dry processed food is much shorter than for raw foods which could potentially cause digestive disturbances. Unfortunately, while acknowledging wholesome foods as basic to their own health, many people still believe their pets will be healthiest when fed processed junk food. Not surprisingly, this simply isn’t so.
While not optimal, you can feed McKibble and McCan AND raw to pets as long as they are fed in separate meals i.e. kibble in the morning and raw at night.
The Raw Feeding Community blog posted an interesting article titled [“DIGEST THIS: Kibble may actually digest faster than raw”] that is worth reviewing.
