    Haha I can't wait for that! There seems to be less now that they're on the EP, so even less than that would be awesome lol.

    Thank you

    I've read in a few places that they shouldn't have kibble and raw in the same meal, due to them being so different to digest, but will it hurt them to have kibble in the morning and raw at night do you think?

    I don't think so and maybe when you get more confident...the kibble can go all together

    I hope so! I just keep thinking.... Charlie is doing so much better on the Holistic, imagine how much better again he'll be if he was on all natural..

    It's going to be a long process and I'm sure it's going to take me a while to get the amounts right - but I don't mind

    Do you feed much fruit? I've been giving them a few pieces of banana with their breakfast when I have it on my breakfast and they seem to love it.

    I do this with no ill effect on Batty (I have had a thorough vet check to confirm too). Hubby feeds Batty in the morning and vomits at the sight of the raw mix so we had to keep some kibble. When we're both working the same hours again I should be able to put him on entirely barf/raw.

    I have found much less poop, and he'll do a little more in the mornings than he does at night.

    Haha sounds familiar!

    Just told hubby my plans for feeding and the response was "you can do that then. I'm not touching it!".

    Hubby wouldn't be much help with a nappy either I suppose.

    The way I get my kibble cheaper is to buy it in the biggest pack possible. Eg 15kg.

    Eg if you got 15kg at $110 you'd be paying $7 per kg not $14 at your current rate.

    I don't think I'd be much help with a nappy LOL.

    I can't get the bigger bag because I don't really have anywhere to put it!

    I get the big plastic bins that you can buy from coles etc - the ones with the clip on lids - and put the food in those

    Nothing can get in, food stays fresh and stores well for ages.

    Sometimes certain brands have promo bins that they give away free with big bags of food, keep a look out at pet stores
    My mum got a metal Eukanuba one about 15 years ago as a prize at a dog show and she still uses it!
