No because from what I heard they digest at different rates.

Did you just post this thread like a week ago haha.

I wrote out a better answer before I think. - but no. They digest at different rates. Do one or the other. If you insist, like some do, of doing both you CAN (although I advise against it) but feed them at very separate spaced out meals.

to adjust them when I started the premade raw, I fed raw in the morning and kibble in the evening. that may be the route to go if you really want to use the rest of the kibble.

You CAN feed both if you want, but not mixed together. If you want to feed both kibble and raw then feed them at separate times.

That is fine, no need to be scientific about it. I generally just recommend one in the morning and the other in the evening.
