I have a policy of contacting all new customers that have ordered frozen food and are having it delivered to their home. This has turned out to be a very rewarding experience for me. It gives me a chance to offer excellent customer follow-up but more importantly I find that these new raw feeders have a ton of questions and they really appreciate my call.
One of the things I uncovered this morning was the confusion that many customers have in regards to feeding the raw diet along with their favorite brand of kibble. Of course the best option is to make the full conversion to raw and eliminate the kibble but many customers, for financial reasons find it necessary to feed a combination of both. My advice is to split the feeding schedules and feed the BARF diet in the morning and the kibble at night. This is because the two different diets require different digestion cycles to utilize the nutrients properly. By splitting the feeding schedules we eliminate a lot of the gas buildup in the digestive tract.
