I am having the exact same issue.
Breeder was feeding him chicken mince, and a frozen concentrate. Another breeder recommended chicken mince and kibble.
I went mince for breakfast, kibble for lunch and dinner but his first stool is super runny. Like almost water. After kibble is much better. Is there something I can put with the chicken mince to help this, or just a fact of mince?

|fineline||my pup (and all his siblings) are on raw. I was feeding minced chicken carcasses and back for added bone i too have had very loose stool. all siblings are fine on it. either way i did him for 2 days on boiled rice, boiled turkey, boiled small bits of sweet potato and a small mix of banana and natural fat free yoghurt. they are now starting to solidify and be less frequent. he was rocketing one out every hour. he is now doing 2 per day. right or wrong it seems to be working. hope this may help|

since meat and bone must be given in proper ratios and that is critical in growing puppies
you run quite a risk of giving too much or not enough bone and that can cause growth issues in the pup
if you are set on raw study up on the ratios and give the food in the correct portions or else go back to quality kibbles during the growth period

But, he got over it very quick. And pretty much went completely off dry food and only wanted raw with normal poos. Took me a while to get the balance I have at the moment of raw and kibble.

|whitbit317||Tonight we tried chicken backs and necks, and his loose stool was worse than with the quarters. I'm beginning to wonder if maybe the chicken is the problem? Both of the kibbles he has been on have had chicken and he didn't really have a problem with them. I'm feeling pretty frustrated at this point, and not sure what else to try. I thought the extra bone in the necks/backs would help, does it take a few feedings for that to be the case?|

|whitbit317||So are the chicken quarters unsafe for him? I definitely don't want to do anything that would hurt him, so if that's the case I can move on to something else. He hasn't seemed to have any trouble either time he's had one.|

|lauren43||I've heard people rave about chicken backs, but from what I've seen they are nearly all bone.|
