Default Beginners Guide to Raw Feeding

I went slower. Fed skinless fat removed quarters for a few days until every poop was consistant. When I added in skin I only did an ounce alternate meals. Did that for a few days then added a bit of fat the meals I didnt add skin. Did that a few days then slowly added more skin and fat. Take it slow as it's not a race.

I think we ended up feeding chicken for about a month before adding in anything else. It was always the same weight for each meal.

How old is your dog?
If adult you Usually you would fast them before starting Raw.. You might wanna feed chicken backs as it is more bone and you want to firm up the poops..

She is ten months. And she was already eating raw for over a month I think now. But starting over since I couldn't get her to poop solid. Taking it slower and starting on chicken with no skin for the next couple weeks

Sounds like you might be feeding too much.

How much does she weigh?

What's the weight of a meal?

How often do you feed?

Too much! You might have nailed it. I spoile her, I know it's over 2-3% percent. She weighs 55lbs right now at 11 months old. So I don't know what that turns to in her adult weight. But I used to keep at ~1.5 pounds a day split into two meals. 8am when my mom take my sister to work. Then the rest at 5-6pm after we go to the dog park after I get off work.

Then I felt that was too much and started feeding ~2lbs a day. Could that half a pound give her the squirts?

Ohhh yes it most definately can. I would start off with a max of 9-10 oz. i know it doesnt look like a lot of food but it's enough. Give that a few days and see how she handles it. When she handles that well for a week (5-7 days) then i would gradually increase the amount by half an ounce to an ounce alternate meals and see how she does with that. So feed 9-10 oz each meal for a week and see how that goes. It is normal for a dog in transition to lose weight. Dont worry, you are not starving her. Once you eventually move to more proteins (and i stress slowly) she will begin to fill out and put the lost weight back on. Again, i stress dont worry about the weight or her not getting enough. She is and she will do fine.

That's why I started feeding more. She seeming always hungry. She would eat Rocky's kibble right after she ate like she never ate in her life or something
