All raw 1 month. Beef 2 full days. No poop!

Hi all!
I am sure there is another post regarding this some where in this forum but I can't find anything on my phone.
We switched our 7 mo old to all raw about a month ago and he LOVES it. For a pup who would let a bowl of kibble sit 3 days we can't put the food in the bowl quick enough for our guy.
Here's my question: we started with all poultry about a month ago and introduced beef 2 days ago. Problem is, he didn't poop today. At all. Is this ok?

Did he just get beef? Or did he get some chicken RMB's with beef added?

The k9 nutrition place we go to suggested that when we introduce new meats to switch entirely so that if there is any issues we know what we need to stay away from. With that said he has only the 'Balance ' beef and ground beef for the 2 days. I am happy to report that he moved it bowels this morning

you have to feed bones or calcium with every meat you feed
meat alone will be unbalanced
the calcium in the bone balances out the phosphorus in the meat
i think a dog needs 900mg of calcium for every pound of meat it eats

this dog is still growing so this is critical to your puppys health

Good to hear he went! Bone gives raw bulk and help to keep everything moving along. No harm in the ocassional meat only meal, but overall, it is important to have the bone, either soft bones like chicken RMB's or ground bone as found in prepared raw.

And prepared raw SHOULD have ground bone, if not, it is not balanced.
