    no reason you couldn't. But not sure why you'd want to?

    Of course. A lot of times if you're switching dog foods (brand/type/etc) this is a good way to gradually introduce the dog to the new food so it doesn't upset his stomach and give him diarrea

    I mis or switch different protein sources all the time. I stick with brands that I know my boys do well on, but that is my only criteria.

    As long as it agrees with your dogs stomach I dont see why not?

    Yep, easy to do. I used to do it in Kodiak with 2 protein sources as the feed store didn't always have the one I wanted, so I fed both so if they ran out and the barge wasn't due in anytime soon, I could easily switch to the other protein source at the last minute with no issues. Then I just started buying several months at a time and calling to make sure they had more when I was opening the 2nd to last bag and it would give me 2 bags worth of time to wait the barge to arrive.
