Thats the info i got when i was switching from raw to kibble.... personally, i am not aware of any benefits/reasons for mixing...
I have heard the same information as you Masha. The info you posted is interesting though, rainbow.

For me it's just easier/more simple to feed all the dogs their RAW diet in the morning, and the kibble at night. I get confused as it is with all the supplements, meds, etc. with the four of them just feeding one type, never mind trying to mix the two!

But I have always been told the same info as Masha stated. I think I would be weary to mix the 2 for this very reason...
