Solid yellow poop after chewing a raw bone?

I gave my 19-month old a raw beef knucklebone the other night for the first time, and the next morning his poop was yellow. With the exception of color, there was no other change in volume/consistency, and no problem signs like blood or mucus, etc. Just confusingly yellow. And now he's back to normal.

Has anyone else experienced this? He usually gets femurs and other occasional raw meats.

Ya. Mine too. Totally normal. I think it has to do with the marrow or calcium or something. I only worry if he gets constipated.

Thanks - that's good to know! I would've thought that if he experienced an abnormality, it'd be with the femurs and not the knuckles. Go figure.
