Day two - he loves it! Added some chicken necks to find out if he would crunch them and yes, he's not a gulper, hoorah. Output this morning was firm and small but partly kibble poo. This afternoon on our walk he had tiny output, all light in color, firm but he's not straining. So far I think chicken agrees with him. We'll see what happens when I add a leg quarter on Wed. The most noticeable difference is his water intake which is next to none. He was always thirsty on kibble and a voracious (and sloppy) drinker. He hasn't gone to his water bowl once today - is this normal?
Less water is normal, the dogs body will adjust. You're switching from dry food to a wet food that contains alot of water. Our little guy doesn't drink much water either but it's always there for him.
You'll notice some changes over the coming weeks. Good luck and enjoy!

Was planning to move on to chicken leg quarters for Pasha's dinner last night but the butcher gave me mostly drumsticks (I bought quite a bit and it was all in a box so I didn't see what I'd actually been given)! Live and learn. The quarters were frozen solid so I went with drumsticksLuckily the drumsticks were quite large and looked meaty. I gave him two (trying not to weigh everything) and just like with anything new, he licked them for a bit first. Then he happily chomped. It was the first time my husband heard him eat the new diet and he said, doesn't that sound freak you out? I said no, if the meat disappeared without a sound, that would freak me out!!
So do drumsticks have enough meat? Or should I be adding some breast at this point?
Still trying to figure out how to post pics - got the imgur app but it seems all I can post are links. I tried the photobucket app but it wants to back up the entirety of my photo collection which takes forever. Is there a pic posting tutorial somewhere on this site? I'm not super tech savy. ;-P

For my guys it is enough meat to not get constipated. When Pasha poops you'll be able to see how he handles the drumsticks. They are typically bonier though, so I wouldn't suggest giving drumsticks only for multiple days without extra muscle meat.
How has Pasha's transition been so far?

Trying a photo experiment.
You're getting there.
When you click in the reply box, you'll notice there's a bunch of icons appear. on the bottom row toward the center, there's an icon of a picture to the left of the <>, when you hover your mouse over it - it should say image. click it, paste your link in there and hit ok. Then post. That should show your picture instead of a link.
He's a cutie.
