Raw medalions and kibble, how much?

I've started Piper on NV medalions and NV kibble (Prairie). I'll rotate as we go along. I'm wondering for those of you that feed both kibble and raw how much ( at 6 months ) should she be getting? The bag says 4 to 5 a day but if she still has her kibble out at all times how many patties should I give her?
Thanks much.

Have you gone to the Nature's Variety site? they have a feeding calculator where you can put in the percentages of what you want to feed based on weight and activity level.

I did but wasn't sure if it was different with a puppy.

Tori, who weighs 8 lb. and has an average activity level, gets 1/4 c. kibble and 2 medallions a day. But, most days she doesn't eat it all, sometimes she leaves some kibble, other times she'll leave part of the medallions. Occasionally, she'll skip a meal completely.

Thanks Leslie,
Piper LOVES the medallions so right now that won't be a problem. I have been leaving her kibble bowl full so she can eat when she wants to and I always have for all our dogs so I wasn't sure if I should continue to do that or not.
