|Madisyn - you can probably get a lot of more in depth info on the raw forum, but I'll attempt a short answer for you:
1. Whatever the recommended serving is for medallions in a day - give her half. Then give her half of her kibble serving in the evening. For example, I feed Brody 2 medallions per day and I used to give him 1/4 cup of dog food per day. So if I were to split that up, I'd give him 1 medallion in the morning and 1/8 cup of dog food in the evening. And yes, that is okay to do. As long as you serve in separate meals, her digestive system should be able to handle it.
2. Instead of pre-made stuff, you could feed, for example, an RMB (raw meaty bone) and some liver. As a meal, I would give Brody 1/2 quail and about .5 ounce of liver. Figure out what you would need to eat for a week, divide by 14 (2 meals each day) and give that 1/14th of a meal. I think you are bigger than me so someone else could give you better advice. Brody is supposed to eat something like 14-20 ounces per week. We stick to the lower end because he got pretty fat a month or 2 into our raw adventure. As long as the meal has a little bit of bone, a little bit of organ, and a lot of meat - you are probably doing okay. Over time, you would want to vary your meat and organ sources, but if you are just feeding a raw meal occassionally, just liver would probably be fine.
