Not worms- the bacteria coccidiosis- he said its common. Puppies carry it can become an issue if the dog is stressed- like from moving to a new home... So today and the next 5 we are keeping things mellow.

It is very important that you follow the Beginners Guide to Raw Feeding, in the raw food section.

Feeding raw incorrectly to a growing puppy can have serious consequences!

As Kari said it's very important, crucial really, to feed bone in meals especially with a growing puppy. The bones provide the calcium needed.
