Hello everyone! So, i've been feeding Toby raw food since I got him. By raw I mean the prepackaged frozen (Mostly Bravo Complete, but have tried Answers, and primal.) I mix with kibble to keep the cost down. I'm wandering if any of you feed raw or make the raw blends yourself? Or buy the incomplete blends and add the vitamins and minerals? I'm interested in doing this but am terrified my little guy wouldn't get all the nutrients he needs.

I don't want to go to fully kibble because the benefits of raw have been amazing. He doesn't shed and his breath never smells :)

Toby had his first water experience! He didn't know what to make of it!

We mainly use Grandma Lucy's and Honest Kitchen, which are freeze dried/dehydrated raw that you rehydrate with hot water to serve. We have also use the basic blend of both these brands and Happy Dog that you rehydrate and add your own raw meat to for the protein.
For treat balls, tug-a-jug toys, etc, we use kibble, eithery Orijen or Taste of the wild.

We have also tried Stella and Chewy's which we love, but is much more pricey, so just use it occasionally.
