Can I mix pellet food with a raw diet?

Since different bacteria digest raw food versus pellet food it can cause gut upsets in sensitive individuals to mix the 2 together. It is recommended to feed the meals apart if giving both pellet food and raw foods. For example, feed a raw meal in the morning and a pellet food at night. If you are able to afford a complete raw diet on its own, this is the most preferable.
