Ill try that tomorrow, I feel like it turns into a snack instead of a meal like that though. Or maybe that's just me liking to eat a lot lol. Thanks

Thats just you.

As long as your dog gets the same amount it doesnt matter if its in one meal or ten meals, it all equals out to the same.

It's harder cause my dad doesn't believe in raw, my mom does. She if my dad is home he feeds her food instead. He just went at it again saying I'm going to kill my dog, and "every vet will tell you that chicken bones kill dogs" and that the bones are going to rip through her stomach and so on

He feeds her kibble? Why is there kibble even in the house? Unfortunately your father doesnt respect your decision but you live in his home so it is going to be hard until you can get a place of your own.

My mom doesn't want the 8 week old on meat yet. He just got over being sick and got his shots so they just don't want him puking or anything yet. And he is getting his ears done in a couple weeks so they don't want to shock him with too much.

If I but him enough he will, but he swears I'm killing my dog. Oh and also the male is his, I bought it for him for Christmas. So I don't buy everything for him like I do for mine. He wants to eat it though, he goes sniff crazy when I feed Silvia haha.

Oh and I also have a poodle that eats food. But she has a different type then the boxers. They don't eat that though

I hear this all the time! Its always been a big thing "dogs and chicken bones" but sadly thats only when they are cooked! I became anti kibble when I went to RAW and watched the changes in my dogs. Thats too bad! I am sure that little guy is wanting the RAW !

I'm sure once he sees the difference from one dog to the other he will feel different. Silvia's teeth are pearly white and so much more shine in her coat

Hi guys I have a complex question

Hi my name is Malachi, I just wanted to make sure I'm feeding my dog right and not hurting her any.

Her morning breakfast is
-one raw egg (trying to get her to eat the shell by she doesn't like it)
-two teaspoons of plain non fat yogurt
-a chicken drum stick (part of her 1.5lbs a day)
And her vitamins, 1,200mg of fish oil, 800IU of vitamin E, and 1000mg of garlic.

For dinner she has the rest of her chicken dinner.

She eats fine, but I ask because I noticed her poop was a odd color today (maybe it has been since raw by just noticed this morning) it was a greener color instead of the normal dark brown. Not watery, it was solid. But not as firm as I know it should be.

Could this just be her getting used to her first week of officially being raw? And she's getting used to it? Or am I doing something raw?

Thank you for your time

Im not sure, I am only giving my guys chicken right now.. nothing else. They seem to be doing well. Did you take the skin off the chicken? I know it says to remove the skin at first. I am following Kari's guide to a T lol.... Except for we started with leaving the skin on because they have been on RAW for over a year.

I cant help but think, maybe thats too many new things in her diet at the same time?
