New 9 week old pup! some questions
So we just brought Alvin home 2 days ago, he's settling in great and his personality is great. His breeder had him on 3 meals a day- Fromm puppy gold for breakfast and lunch then raw turkey and beef for dinner. We are keeping with this plan but have noticed he has some runny poops. He's been drinking water and loves the raw dinner but hardly eats any of of the dry kibble. He is also teething like crazy! We bough a pack of those soup bones they sell at the grocery store, are those okay to give him? We let him have one and he loved it, but we took it away after about 15 minutes because I was worried it would make him sick. We've never had a dog on raw and I know it can go bad if you don't do it right.

Is all this normal? I feel like a helicopter mom:confused:

Update- he has a small bout of coccidia that is now being treated. So poops are firming up.
