So after taking a bit of time away, I decided to try to feed Darwin's again since I have the remainder of the introductory shipment in the freezer. I chose a packet of duck and placed it in the plastic container Thursday night. It was thawed this morning (Saturday). I reduced Leo and Rexy's kibble by half and added some (less than a measured tablespoon) of raw duck. For Rex, I broke the amount up into tiny little bits spread over the reduced amount of kibble. Then I put a bit of water in the dish as I always do when I feed kibble. Rexy sniffed at the food then ate and it stayed down. Yeah!
Leo doesn't seem to have an issue with the food so far.
Maybe it was the beef that was an issue for Rex or maybe breaking up the raw into tiny bits rather than a mushed clump or reducing the amount of kibble a bit more who knows? The total amount he ate for breakfast isn't sufficient to sustain him and he has no excess weight so I will have to bump up the raw portion before too long. Anyway, we'll continue to try. I did talk to Darwin's and had them suspend the next shipment until I could decide if I was going to pursue raw feeding. We'll see how it goes.
