Default Help with raw feeding please ☺️

Just a quick question.....changing my three Chis from kibble to raw, should I take away the kibble altogether or do a gradual switch over a period of time?
My two boys love anything raw, but my chi girl is very fussy 😩 Iíve read all about amounts, what to feed etc but couldnít find info on the actual switch over 😁
Iím determined to do it this time and want to get it so right for them!
Any help very much appreciated.....thank you

I honestly don't know but I'm sure someone on here will know.
But I will be interested to see what they say. Because if I were doing it I'd slowly switch from kibble to raw. I have absolutely no real reason or facts to back it up, it's just my opinion.
I've always been a bit "scared" of the idea to feed raw. Since their are so many "what if's" But of course there's many dogs that do great on raw.

I leave a high grade kibble and give one meal of raw daily. That way I know my picky girl is still eating.

We switched our guys over cold-turkey without any issues, but you can certainly do gradual if you prefer. Just make sure you don't mix the kibble with the raw - keep them separate, whether that means you feed one meal kibble/one meal raw, or a little of both in separate dishes.

I have done cold turkey too. If any of them has a sensitive tummy, start with a bony meal. Add one protein at a time, one organ at a time, etc. in small amounts.

Can I just ask the reason for not mixing the kibble with raw...?

Honestly, I can't remember. I just remember reading a few different sites that said not to mix the two together when I was researching before our switch. I just did a quick Google search now and can't seem to find it again, so you can probably ignore that lol.
