Raw Feeders - sometimes kibble???
I feed Lola NV Raw medallions. A variety of Lamb, Venison and Beef. Sometimes a raw chicken thigh or back, or a turkey neck. She eats like a pig, so I actually put the medallions in a kong to slow her intake so she doesn't choke. Love the raw - she has small non-smelly poops, no gland trouble, and has stopped eating her poop.
I am wondering if any of you raw feeders ever feed kibble for convenience sake? I am taking Lola flying to Chicago for Thanksgiving and New Mexico for Christmas. It is a huge pain to deal with frozen, raw, etc. when travelling, staying in hotels, at people's homes who are grossed out by the whole thing. I was thinking of transitioning her over this week to NV Instinct kibble (grain-free) which is what she was on before going raw. And giving her a mix over the coming holidays. For some days she'd be on 100% kibble. Lola has an iron gut, as she's had diaharrea maybe 3 times when she got into something she shouldn't.
Is the transition the only thing you'd worry about? I worry that the kibble will yield a greater volume of poop which is not a good thing when we are travelling. Any other issues you can warn me about? If I disrupt her gut with this could she have ongoing issues with runny stools and stuff?
