What signs are there if a dog cannot digest fat? I thought the fat was an important part of raw, but lately I've been taking the skin off of Cheyenne's chicken thighs and legs because she is starting to gain too much weight. I was concerned that removing the fat would hurt the overall benefits, but figured there was still enough.

Again, just curious as to what indications there are that a dog can't digest fat, i.e. loose stools, vomitting, etc?
