Default Review arnies diet

I've read an awful lot about how best to feed my little furry butt so I want to check I'm doing it right. He was on bakers when we first had him so hopefully what I'm doing now is an improvement! Ha. He weighs 2.6kg at the moment

I know ill get honest feedback on here and you guys have given me the inspiration to make arnies life and diet better so here it goes:
Morning meal: 30g of Eden kibble with a tiny bit of water in it
Evening meal: 30g of raw meat. Every other day he will get a bone in meal. The raw meat has been chicken and we have just introduced lamb. No organs yet as we are new to this
Treats: no treats are given except when he is in his crate he will hve a dried pigs ear (not a whole ear either. He is left with it for 1 hour tops. He goes through an ear in about 2 weeks)

What am I missing? What can I change? Thank you ever so much

Eden is an excellent kibble, his diet sounds good to me. Bone-in meat every other day might be a bit bone-heavy, so keep an eye on his poos, if they are dry and chalky you need to cut back on the bone. Once he is used to lamb you can try other meats, the more variety the better.
I have never fed kibble with raw, but I think because the kibble is complete you don't have to worry about adding organs. The only other thing I would think about adding are fish oils and coconut oil. I can't remember off the top of my head if Eden has added fish oils, it may well.
A HUGE step up from Bakers lol!

Thanks for your response. I would hate to be feeding him the right food but be completely doing it wrong! We moved from bakers to wainwrights but found his poop to be unpredictable

I noticed his dryish poo this morning so cut the bone tonight. Bought some coconut oil today. What quantities should we be doing? I offered it to him on a teaspoon solid and he wasnt interested, let it melt and he still wasnt interested. Rubbed it on my hands however and he didn't stop licking!! Funny thing

Honey wont eat just normal flesh, she is a weirdo. She loves her bone in wings and ribs etc, but wouldnt just eat the meat like that.

Anyway, i buy the frozen raw that you get in the freezers at Pets At Home, those types of places. They've got a good variety and Honey absolutely loves them!

Oh and i dont know about you, but i used to give Hon pigs ears and her stools always went loose. She now has dried cows ears, bullies, hooves, etc.
