Sorry for the delay in answering.
If she is still having loose stools I would start by fasting her for 24 hours. That gives the gut and bowels a chance to relax.
Then I would start by offering her about 1/2 cup of PLAIN canned pumpkin (not the pie mix stuff - it has sugar and spices).
About an hour or so after that I would start feeding her again - but cut back the amount you feed by 10%.
Instead of feeding her 2.2 pounds, go down to 2 pounds.
Keep an eye on her figure. You should be able to feel her ribs by lightly running your hand down her side. If you can't - she too heavy.
You should NOT be able to see her ribs (that means she's too thin).
Keep up that feeding schedule for a couple days and see how her stools progress.

She is 70lbs
we give her on a daily basis 35 ounces of food (2.2lbs) - chicken is our most used ingrediant, but others include turkey, ground beef, hen, or duck. about 2-3 ounces of that is organ - mostly liver, sometimes kidney or turkey hearts.
we also feed her chicken feet or gizards as treats
eggs 3-4x weekly
fish oil 3x weekly
her stool is dark brown to black and pretty watery

Let us know her current weight and how much (in pounds/ounces) you are feeding each day.
The #1 reason for loose stools in a raw fed dog is OVERfeeding.

|Wild Wolf||Make sure the ratios are balanced, getting enough bone, etc. Probiotics + digestive enzymes heavy duty every meal, tablespoon of pumpkin with each meal.|

What else are you giving, what ratio's?
Describe poop, soft serve, mucous, yellow (examples), any blood, bright red or black?
Acute or start getting soft?
Rest the gut - fast 24hrs. to start

Raw Diet with diarrhea
My 18 month GSD has diarrhea and I was wondering what I should do to get her feeling better asap. I have her on a raw diet where she gets roughly 3-5 proteins weekly, but we haven't changes anything in her diet for the past 6 months or so, so I'm not too sure what the problem could be.
Any advice would be great
