|Hi. I currently feed one of my dogs canned food, since I've had a lot of problems with food sensitivities/allergies. I'm not quite to the point of wanting to feed raw or even homecook, but I AM thinking very seriously of using Honest Kitchen or Sojos. Both contain raw, deyhydrated food. The instructions are very explicit about introducing small amounts when beginning to feed new food. I assume that it won't be a problem doing this with canned food, but I just wanted to ask - will it be problematic? From what I've read, kibble and raw should not be combined, but is it also not advisable to combine canned with raw because of differing digestion rates?
Also, if I choose to feed the Honest Kitchen in the morning and some canned at night, is that ok? I assume it is, since at least a few dogsters do raw in one meal and kibble the next; however, Joey seems to have a sensitive stomach, so I need to be careful.
I DO plan to use probiotics during the switch.
