      Sure enough, feed kibble. Just ask any ordinary vet, that's what they will say. There are a few vets and nutritionists though who think otherwise.

      I get the feeling that study tested pre-pared raw food. ?? Most food pre cut/ground food loses nutrients through oxidation and has more surface area to develop bacteria, germs on. It could be meat or cabbage. That'w why hamburger is more of a problem for E coli than steak. For us and our dogs. I did not feed my dog pre-pared mixes, I fed hunks of uncut meat. Well, cut in so far as to make it portable by me and meal size for him.

      Oban's Vet supports raw food and she guided me when we switched.

      You should feed kibble as a meal and RAW as another meal, but not together, each digests at a different pace. For starters, try feeding freeze-dried raw and see how Dexter and you like it.

      On a side note, there will always be controversy with feeding RAW to our pets, so don't believe everything you read. We've been feeding Homemade/RAW since 1999 with absolutely no problems for dogs or humans. Opal, at 12.8 years old, just had her blood-work and urine tested and other than 2 slightly elevated liver enzymes (for which she's on natural liver support supps) the rest of the results are near perfect. Vet and we are very happy with the results.

      I was watching a TV show (Dr. Pol) and the vet blamed the dog's case of bad intestinal distress on getting into the trash and eating raw meat. I about laughed and fell off the couch.
