Default Trying to add raw into diet

Hello everyone! I have been researching dog foods and recently switched my kids to Taste of the Wild. They love it and I have seen improvements in them already!
I have been looking into doing raw and would like to try out some pre made raw frozen or freeze dried diets. I found an AMAZING store near me that has all the 5 star brands so I picked up some Nature's Variety frozen bites. I was also wanting to try the Primal or Nutrisca freeze dried, too.
So my question is... Can I feed raw/freeze dried and kibble at the same time? Or does the raw/freeze dried food have to be fed at a separate meal (such as kibble for breakfast and raw for dinner)?
Thanks in advance for any advice! 😊

Treat it just like any food switch even if it is just an add in. Little bit at a time and work into larger amounts.

You can feed kibble and freeze dried raw together if you want. There's an internet myth that persists that all raw and processed foods must be kept separate in the diet by 12 hours, etc. Nah. Doesn't make sense to me. Although I respect those who just feel better doing that. Whatever works. Go by your dog and how they do.
