Between the Bravo Balance and the Red Barn for training, he's getting all the proper nutrients in the right proportions.
Jax, how long will you be feeding your pup pre-made raw? Are you waiting till 1 year to switch to homemade?

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

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!

My dog eats twice a day. If he gets a decent walk in the morning before breakfast, he will poop; otherwise he'll have to go shortly after breakfast. Then he will poop again in the late morning or early afternoon. He normally doesn't have to poop after dinner, but it has happened sometimes. Overall I expect twice a day at minimum, possibly three. The only time he hasn't stuck to his poop schedule is when he was too stressed at boarding and had diarrhea three times before 4pm.

David Winners 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.
