Lightbulb mixing freeze dried food with raw food

Hello,
I just want to ask if it is OK to mix freeze dried food (Stella and Chewy's) with raw food (the same brand).

Is it hard to process for the dog or it is ok?

Thank you

According to this quote it is okay to use the freeze dried as a topper on the raw.

Freeze Dried Diets

A newer trend in pet foods is the availability of freeze dried or “cold processed” diets. Since heat is the number one enemy of nutrients in food, freeze drying is a far superior way to preserve the nutrition and biological nature of fresh foods. The natural enzymes, amino acids, and probiotics remain intact. The addition of grains is unnecessary in the processing of the food, so those looking for a grain free diet can include freeze dried foods in their companion’s rotation.

Freeze dried food can be fed alone or top dressed on raw or dry food. Freeze dried food is an excellent way to supplement a dry, kibble diet or offer some variety in the rotation of your companion’s diet. It can also be used as a highly nutritious treat, and is an excellent food for puppies and kittens as it can be well re-hydrated and even run through a blender to make it easy for them to eat. Because it is very light weight, it is excellent for camping and traveling. One pound of freeze dried food will typically re-hydrate to the equivalent of about 10-12 5.5 oz. cans of food.

How much were you thinking of mixing in?
