Feeding Puppies Raw--particularly Primal
To those of you who feed raw to your puppies, do you supplement kibble or just give the daily amount of raw? Primal suggests I give Reesie (13 weeks old) 1.6 nuggets a day and that does not seem to be enough to go all day, this boy CAN EAT and he finishes his bowl of kibble 1/4-1/2 cup (Acana Grasslands) everyday on top of the raw. My vet recommends that I leave the kibble down at all times b/c he is a growing puppy. Just wanted to know what you all did. Right now I am doing the raw and kibble together. BTW-he swallows the kibble whole, even if I break it up with a blender/nutcraker! He just wolfs it down!!!

I have no experience feeding puppies raw. But I think I would definitely leave kibble down all day for him. He is a growing boy! Once he gets older, then you can keep track if he's over-eating. Because some pups WILL over-eat, whereas some self-regulate pretty good. But I wouldn't really worry about a 12 week old pup being overweight or anything. So for now, I'd just keep doing what you're doing!

I fed Jezebel raw in the morning and free fed kibble all day long. It worked well. When she reached a year and I brought Chuy into our home (he's the same age as her, he was a rehome), I stopped free feeding and they get raw in the morning and kibble in the evening.
Life is merrier with a Yorkshire Terrier!
