lhczth First I would have a fecal run on the pup checking for worms, coccidia and giardia (best if the snap test is run for the latter) to make sure the diarrhea is not caused by some type of parasite. Then worry about changing the diet (though I tend to switch immediately when I get a new dog/puppy).

The forum section right below this section is all about puppies on raw diet. It may be of more help and answer some of your questions about it.

Michele Maxcy I agree with keeping the puppy on what he was eating when you got him and when he is a little older make sure you switch him over really slowly.

mydogs I would leave him on the food he has been eating before you got him. Atleast a month or so. He has too many new changes going on to switch right now. He's also very young still.

Advise on what to do please

Hi
We just collected our puppy at 7 weeks old. We travelled for two hours to get him home . He previously was on dried kibble diet and his poo's have been ok solid. When we got him home and gave him two meals of puppy kibble a good premium brand ,stools have been runny.His a bit stressed out as it's a new environment to where he was and it's all new for him . We are wondering if it's the travel, stress and new puppy kibble which is making this .

Now the most important question is this . We want him to start on a pure meat raw diet and was thinking of introducing this straight away without delay from day one but this diarrhoea his got is causing us a concern .we want to give just minced soft chicken meat .i don't know with the diarrhoea we now should give him raw immediately . A raw diet breeder said we had to start somewhere . I don't want to make his diarrhoea worse . Should We wait a bit more days before the switch or should I start straight away . Please note I'm just kibble for morning and lunch and then pure raw for dinner . This is the way we like to do it so he gets both . We are never mixing kibble and raw together . Any one think we should not give raw yet or is it ok to start straight away . Please advise we are new to raw puppy feeding.
