    Depends on how well they adjust, some dogs get upset stomachs from switching like that. I try to do kibble am and raw pm, but, especially with my current schedule, there are times where I feed all kibble and times I try to make up for it and feed all raw. It's one reason I try to follow the whole prey model, so I don't have to worry too much about "what if I forgot my kidney meal the other night."

    Same for us.

    It should be. What are you planning on feeding?

    Q. How should I start? Should I switch my dog gradually to a raw diet?

    A. Most dogs do best with being switched cold turkey. Feed ki**le one day, feed raw the next day. Ki**le is an unnatural food for a carnivore. It takes your dog much longer to digest ki**le than it will to digest raw. If you try to alternate between the two the raw food can get "stuck in traffic" behind the ki**le. This can cause the raw food to pass more slowly through the system than it should which can cause problems for some dogs.

    Keep googling, you'll find more opinions. This is one area a quick Google won't give you the answer.

    *edit:

    And deific, I'm just giving you a hard time after you little discussion the other day in O&E. But seriously, you will find varying opinions. It's not an all or none approach.

    Yes as long as your dog(s) tolerate the changes. Personally, I feed raw in the a.m. and dehyrated grainless in the p.m.

    Thank you Nick, just doing my part to add something worth while to the board. I happen to be looking at the sites when that post came up so I put what I was reading.

    That's fine, but I think you're probably finding out that there are a diverse range of opinions on this subject. That's all I was trying to point out.

    The reason I like to work with numbers is because 2+2 always equals 4. I don't like all this it depends on who you ask stuff.
