|blackshep||my raw fed dog will still poop twice a day, but the poops are tiny compared to kibble. She's a rule follower, so when we go out to potty, she does her very best to produce something for me to clean up lol|

I, personally, am not comfortable feeding a growing puppy home-made raw. I've been feeding Seger Bravo Balance raw and giving him chicken feet at night to give him something to chew on and clan his teeth.
Between the Bravo Balance and the Red Barn for training, he's getting all the proper nutrients in the right proportions.

One of my dogs eats kibble and the rest eat raw... I don't care what you feed if it works for your dog and they're healthy. But if you're going to feed 100% non-packaged raw then you need to feed it correctly in order to have a balanced diet.

|Tirah||Well I would have to say my mix and the RMB are working great Diesel's poops are nice! I've had him weaning off Nature's Variety LID Rabbit and have been fighting loose stool and diarrhea, I'm seeing a great change so far, getting into and excited about feeding raw! Thanks for all the input everyone!|

You will become a poop watcher
The poop is an indicator of how things are going. Too soft = more bone. Too hard = less bone. When you switch something up, you expect the poop to soften up as they adjust. When it firms back up, they are good to go.
This can happen when adding organ meat. The first couple meals with liver may cause loose stool. After the dog gets used to it, they can eat liver with no problems.
Dogs also poop less on raw. When you first switch, it may take a couple of days to get a good poop. Fama took about 5 days to become regular.
For supplements, I use FEEDSentials, Shemp-Oil, Phyt'n Chance, Power of 3 E's and Sunday Sundae from www.carmspack.com
I also use Springtime garlic for flea, tick and mosquito prevention.

|Tirah||Here's a silly question...How often does one find their GSD having to go Poo? Will it be less or even a day or two in between, just want to make sure what to look for in that area of Raw Feeding... I know gross|
