Default hair loss

We switched to a raw diet about 2 1/2 weeks ago. This is my first time with raw but not my first German Shepherd. I am used to shedding cycles. That being said it seem Winston is going thru a heavier shed than what I might consider normal. We are feeding either beef or chicken meat/fat for morning meals and chicken wings/neck/backs for evening. We are also adding Liver and/or Kidney and/or Lung and/or tripe 3 or so times a week with the meat meal. Also giving 1 egg 4-5 times per week. I am giving a tablespoon of pumpkin every other day and yogurt or cottage cheese 3 times per week also. Is it normal to go thru an initial heavy shed with the switch? Thanks!
