Well, I mix up pedigree and raw with no problems, so I don't know if the whole grain thing holds up, like Conker and Saya say. I don't bother buying the grain free stuff, it's too expensive just for treats!

There is a new brand at the supermarket though with no grains, it's $15 bucks for a small baggie but maybe I will try it and see if I see any difference. thinking

I feed cat kibble too sometimes with his raw, again no biggie at all, it's a definite know your own dog situation.

My dog's iron gut gives me no reason to be anti-grain I suppose laugh out loud for now.

I'm of the thought that raw and kibble mixed together should not be a problem for the average dog. Just a few days ago I spoke with the nutritionist of a major pet food company that does NOT produce raw but produces high quality kibble (he's a friend of mine) and he said there is absolutely no reason raw and kibble can't be mixed, but, like everybody else said, know your dog. Some dogs may do fine, others may really struggle.

I was super careful at the beginning of keeping the kibble meal and raw separate until I realized the number of commercial treats the 2 get on class or trial days. shrug Now I do add feet or hearts to the kibble meals sometimes.
