The best things in life, aren't things
The highlighted part of your post TKay is exactly what I believe everything comes down to.
Without knowing the answer, I would hazard a fair guess that throughtout this country more dogs are fed a commercial diet (whatever that may be) more so than those who feed a raw diet.
As I've mentioned before, some vets even will advocate a raw diet, and a lot of them will advocate the opposite.
Jeez, I know ppl who feed their dogs stews and table-leftovers. I wouldn't but gotta admit their dogs are strong, fit and darned healthy.
Everything has it's pros and cons, and what is right for one does not mean it is always right for another.
Perfect example, Inca is ill. Am I feeding her chicken pieces to rip apart and meat ATM? Of course not. I am trying to feed her roast cooked chicken, pasta, rice, any bland foods that won't upset her tummy ATM. She won't be going back to her usual diet until this is fixed. Things change with our dogs at times and we change with them to accomodate that.

I am sure Ruby is so stubborn she would rather starve herself than eat what she doesn't like. Unfortunately...she can not live off chicken necks. She will eat human foods...chicken necks...potato chips...just NOT her mince/vegie/supplement mix. She will not TOUCH kibble....too posh for that! #$%^&%^%$
Cleas, have you offered her the meat without the supplements through it?
When I think back and it might be a coincidence...but she has been doing this ever since she almost choked on a hard bone in a carcass. She was freaking out...I was freaking out mate...scary stuff! She couldn't breathe and I tried 3 times to get the bone up...3rd time she gagged and coughed it up....sigh
Surely she can not survive on chicken necks and minced meats???? She needs her vitamins and minerals too
Out of curiosity Cleas, did Ruby used to do this with any other foods/diets she has been on throughout her life?
she sounds like a yoyo dieter lol
prehaps she gets bored of her diets and since she can't go and get her own food she will just wait till you give in?
I guess we will see who wins the battle of stuborness, Staffy V Human.
(sorry I don't have any helpful advice either)
