3 pounder, thought the minpin was tough for finding smaller bones and such. Have you found another protein?
Have you tried your dogs on rabbit? Bones are pretty small and easier for them to get through. Quail are small and easy to eat...
We had to start on vitamin supplements as well, giving him a mix of cod liver oil, vitamin E and flax oil.

Maybe you should look at scheduled feedings? Less waste, and maybe a little less finicky when they are fed while hungry? Scheduled makes it easier when we take him with us anywhere. We take him camping and fishing, he knows what time he should be eating and he does a good job letting us know he's hungry.
How did the rabbit go over?
When Jagger was on commercial food, GF always kept food in the dish for him, he was free to eat any time of day. Could hear him snacking throughout at night time. Not a typical minpin, he didn't overeat. When switched to raw, I was concerned about scheduled feedings as he wasn't used to it. Easy switch with him, that concerned me as I didn't want to be leaving raw meat in the dish. So we started feeding twice a day - 7 am and 5 pm. He'll get a snack at night otherwise he's up @ 5 am squawking for food. We did worry about him eating enough for the first few days, but that didn't take long to quash.
Now that spring has hit and he's more active, we probably have to give him more food in each meal. He'll drop weight fast over the summer.
