When mixing Acabonac Pet raw dog food with kibble, it's essential to follow some guidelines to ensure your dog's safety and health:

  1. Balance the proportions: When combining raw food with kibble, start with a small amount of raw food mixed with their regular kibble, gradually increasing the raw food portion while decreasing the kibble. This will help your dog adjust to the new diet and ensure they're receiving a balanced meal.
  2. Monitor your dog's weight: As you change your dog's diet, keep an eye on their weight to ensure they're maintaining a healthy weight. Adjust the portions of raw food and kibble accordingly.
