Is the chicken enhanced at all? That could be a factor in the mucous.

I know one time i ran out of my usual supply and had to get some from the grocery store once and had mucous-y stool from the sodium injected into the chicken.

I don't know if it is or not, but I do have this picture for you guys! And a extra question.

Ill start with the picture, and I want to say thank you guys for your guidence, help and time. I'm not satisfied with it, but if her chicken had been supplemented would she still poop fine? Anyways here is the picture.



And my next question to avoid making a new thread; eye boogers. Are these fine or normal. I know my Poodle has those stains under her eyes, but I have not had boxers prior to these two for I think over six years. If seems she gets them a lot I constantly clean them off, same for my little male. In the morning they are big ones as shown in the picture, when is it too much?

Eye boogers are common in boxers.
So long as they are mostly clear and not thick green or yellow.

The poop looks normal to me.

Eye boogers will reduce in time being on raw. Rex still gets them but mainly after a long sleep, he's been on raw 9.5mnths..

She is detoxing, the eye goopies will get better with time. Just use a paper towel or kleenex to wipe them off.

That poop is looking even better than the other one. Give her some more time.

So in another week or two do you think I should start introducing skin again? (Skinning is nasty lol) or longer? How about for her daily vitamins

EDIT: also don't mind her eye it's a little lazy, I think it give her personality haha.

Give her at least a few more days with poops that look like that.

I would recommend starting slow with the skin since you have had previous problems. Start with an ounce of skin once a day and see how she handles that. Then come back and ask "what next".

Others may suggest all the skin once a day. Do what you feel comfortable with.

It's not a race.

Yeah, i agree with the eye boogers too. Probably part of the detox. Or it could be a lot if dust and a reaction to it.
