oh wow, I had no idea. I haven't given it to her anytime since then and I won't give it to her anymore. Thanks for letting me know it was too much.

Courtney I'm sure she would love a raw meaty bone whenever you can give them to her!

Make sure it is UNCOOKED bone though. Just wanted that to be clear. Never give a dog any meat that contains bones that have been cooked. The bones can splinter into shards and pierce the dogs stomach and intestines, resulting in thousands of $$$ in surgery and/or potential death. I know we're discussing a RAW diet, which would mean uncooked, but I can't assume that everyone who reads this thread will understand that.

My dogs have been exclusively raw fed for 4 years now and are thriving. When on kibble, they were on Orijen, Acana, Innova EVO, and Wellness CORE, all of which are grain-free and higher protein content. On raw, they can be fed all sorts of frozen and thawed meat and uncooked bones, etc. And yes, like someone else said, they only need a little bit of organ meat and liver each day, and liver IS very rich and can cause runny stool, unless it is balanced out with meat with higher bone content, as the digested bone is what helps solidify their stool.

Hope that helps! Let us know if you have any other questions. Good luck!

I'm going to wait until she's at least 6 months before I start giving her pieces of raw meat again. I won't go fully raw but I'll giver her a piece or two every week along with kibble and veggies.
Liver is probably what caused the dog to "get sick" whatever that means. It's rich. Needs to be fed in moderation.

wyowolf Our Breeder uses RAW , but our pup eats both kibble and raw, thats how she came to us.. I usually give her chicken back at lunch and mix kibble and raw the other two meals..
stools are fine and she eats it right up!

owens91 shes currently on iams puppy large breed, soon as i get low im gonna switch to a better brand just not sure what yet

Mrs.P Some raw is better than no raw in my opinion! Some dogs can handle mixing raw and kibble in the same meal and some cannot. See what works for your pup!
