katdog5911 Just started raw not long ago too. Never had to deal with diarrhea at all.

I bought the sardines from Canada and my girl gobbled them up. I noticed a lot of canned sardines were from all over the place. I just figured Canada might be safer.

onyx'girl I'd go with 2 meals a day...sometimes the larger portions are harder to digest than smaller, especially during the transition phase. Mackarel is usually packed in China or Taiwan. I'm really leary of feeding fish from those countries. Sardines that are canned in Canada(Brunswick brand) may be a better option? I'm a bit paranoid when it comes to fish and the farmed stuff is not worth feeding at all.

sembry I just stalked my girl going poo and good news she had a couple solid nuggets and the first few were mucus/snotty looking but the last couple were solid. Maybe just something I gave her I'm gonna stick with just chicken for a couple more weeks to make sure I didn't add too much too fast!!

sembry She eats once a day at night and has the diarrhea sometime during the day. I may have added too much too soon. Going to backoff to just chicken again and see if that helps. I did give her some canned chub mackerel in Sunday night??

GADDYHAUS SHEPHERDS Both my Shepherds, my golden and my pomeranian did the same thing when we switched them over. You would have thought they were dying. Layed around threw up yellow sputem, explosive water butt. We had actually mixed in two much new raw meats to soon. We went back to straight chicken thighs and the problem got better. One day they all sat up and acted like brand new dogs.

onyx'girl When and what did she eat last? Could be a blockage?

I would rest her gut for 24 hours(limit water intake to small amounts) and get some slippery elm bark capsules. After the fast, start a bland diet of cooked burger or chicken and double boiled rice, canned pure pumpkin. Give 2 caps of the SE mixed into a spoonful of yogurt, cooked scrambled egg or pumkin a half hour before you that for several meals. Consult your vet, but be warned they will probably blame the diet for the gut issue. I'd not start back on raw for a few days after being on the bland diet.
Also make sure you aren't over feeding and that you are feeding a good balance of meat/bone/organ(but not much organ!)

llombardo Icky poop can be so many things. If it's never happened before then I would at least call the vet and make sure there is water available so she doesn't dehydrate.
