Alright guys! Got another newbie question. I'm very comfortable with what I can feed my 4.5 year old Doberman. I'm getting more comfortable with our almost 9 week old Black and Tan Coonhound, Duke. Every day his meals consist of a skinned chicken wing, cubed chicken breast, 1-3 gizzards, a dollap of chicken liver. I'm slowly adding a cube of pork each meal. He's not big enough for chicken backs yet, and I can barely find chicken necks (heck turkey necks are difficult even).

 

Anyways, my Doberman gets a pretty good variety of foods and he's been going raw since August of this year. His poop is of good consistency, size and doesn't smell. Our puppy on the other hand has GOOD looking poop but my god the smell is so strong and foul. It's worse than my Doberman's kibble farts! Can I do anything to help the smell of his poop? Now, the smell doesn't last long but coming out is putrid :wacko:

 

 

 

Another slightly unrelated question - since I can't get chicken necks easily, could I feed pig tails? They appear to be about the same size, and I figure the bone content is similar. He's starting on pork well, so I figured I'd ask.

What has your puppy been eating so far? Sometimes, some things just may give them more gas than others. Ours get farts pretty bad with both chicken and deer. 

 

Pig tails are fine to feed, I feed them when I find them. Just be sure your dogs won't gulp them, because they are about the right size for that. Also, the bone in pig tails is much denser than a chicken neck, so be ready for that.

Has he had a fecal test done at the vet yet to rule out intestinal parasites? Sometimes puppies that have foul smelling poop have bugs! And most puppy have one parasite or another even if they're raised in clean, healthy environments.

He's been regularly dewormed. I have a feeling the smell is due to Grandma and Grandpa. I've been very clear about what he can and can't eat.... and yet, they've given him Honey Ham, cheeseballs, taffy and kibble... ugh. I can't wait until we have a pen at our house. Granted, they treat him like a human grandchild (that they don't have), but it's still slightly frustrating..

His poo last night was god awful.. it kind of traumatized my husband lol. He's slowly learning how to study poo and how to adjust meals accordingly (he's not big on raw, but trusts me if I say it's best for his dog... so I bag up meals for him to feed when I'm at work). That poo definitely had the taffy, cheeseballs, Milkbone and other lord knows what in it. This morning he had his usual meal from me. A little soft, but no smell. *sigh* I can't get angry because grandparents WILL spoil grandkids. Oh well...

That is super frustrating....can you maybe supply more nutritious things for them to spoil him with? Treats and goodies that are diet (and dog) appropriate?

Have you tried talking to them about not giving him certain things? I have heard of some grandparents who this works with ... I haven't had luck with my mother-in-law for the hairy or naked kids. But some grandparents will listen! :)

And yes, I think the leaving dog appropriate foods is a good idea!

For my family members that still feel the need to "spoil" Jasper despite my protests, I have at least been able to convince them to just give just LITTLE pieces of said item. Nixes the digestive upset for him. Lol
