I freeze all my meat and only pull out what I need the night before. If your meat went off before the best before date then I would be taking it back.

Raw is only as complicated as you make it. You rushed the beginning, then when you started over things went as planned. This is just a hiccup. She needs to stop eating mulch. Tomorrow her poops should be solid again.

Take a breath, say well crap and move forward

What are we thinking with a boneless chicken? I can only get boneless skined chicken. Everything that has bones has skin and I'm against skinning myself cause i almost wanted to puke lol. I don't cook so hardly touch raw meat

Because the wood irritated her digestive tract, I would feed her next meal boneless and skinless. Then after that feed her a skinless bone in meal and continue right where you left off. If poops are normal after several days you can try to leave the skin on every other meal.

Man that boneless skinless cost three times what quarters cost! And smallest I could find was $10 for a little less then 2lbs. But she got her .5lbs and ate that in two seconds cause there was no bones hah. And also got another 25lbs of quarters that I have to skin right now. Well see how she poops later. Also second meal with bone again? Or still boneless skinless

You didnt have to specifically buy boneless. You could have cut the meat off from a leg or two and saved the bones for another time.

Well that was a false alarm. I have her some doggy peptbo and fit that stool for the day. Next day (today) and pooping worse then ever. I really don't know what I'm doing guys. She eats fine, loves it. No skin 1lbs-1.3 because she has been steady loosing weight and seems starving. There is lots of bones I think, yet poop is coming out like a mountain/puddle of mush. I'm ready to throw in the towel. She eats speratly from the other dog and his food is out always after. Idk what to do anymore

Something isn't adding up. Is someone in your home feeding her table scraps or kibble? Can you get your hands on chicken backs? She just might need heavier bone content.

Bones = fibber? My dad (who is completely against this) said she needs more fiber.

And no to table scaps. That's a no no with both boxers. I know what she does do is take a bite of cocos food (senior small bread food) here and there when we don't catch her and sometimes she can get Rocky's BB food. But again this is a bite or two a day before we catch her. I dout that will cause the horrible poops she has. And as in backs not through any stores I shop right now (only buying 25~lbs at grocery stores) for now as I'm doing this and that with her food. When she was eating regular I would buy 45-55lbs in bulk at a meat market that I get good prices. So as of now I'm spending like $32 to feed her for two weeks. Not cost effective and not working for her, hince the reason I'm getting frustrated

Yes even a mouthful of kibble can throw her off. It digests differently, it confuses her system.

Can you get chicken or turkey necks?
