Just switched our 2 dogs to raw. 1 is a fox terrier(4 years old) and the other a doberman puppy (3 months old). Im happy to say that they both love raw meat. I have fed the fox terrier raw in the past for a couple months and noticed...

-increased energy and playfulness

-clearer eyes (almost looked cataracts when fed kibble)

-smaller less stinky poops

-brighter colored fur

-softer coat

Im sure this is no surprise to you all.

We resently moved to a cattle ranch area and have access to meat of all kinds, at very cheap prices, and 100%grass fed. So, obviosly we switched our new puppy to a raw diet. This time it was successful thanks to this website. I was trying tripe and beef at first and she got the squirts. After researching this site I switched to bony chicken and tried again with SUCCESS. She is thriving on it with way more energy and less ear gunk. she used to sleep half the day. now she plays mostly and takes maybe 2 short, half hour naps. However just yesterday our fox terrier became ill and threw up. she is passing blood and has diarrhea. she vomits foamy white mucus and isnt eating at all. I don't think it is a lodged bone since she has eaten hundreds of chicken bones in the past, but all it takes is one. Anyway she was thriving before this happened and I have no idea what is wrong. She is also one of those dogs that like to "find" random things to eat such as poop, old food, chicken bones,etc. We took her to the beach yesturday and she maybe ate an old squid or something. Any Ideas? Just want to make sure its not a "bone stuck in the intestine" problem. Thanks

Not sure what your girl may have gotten into. You may want to have a fecal done by the vet. Just let them know this started after a trip to the beach and she likes to "find" things. Best wishes!

I'm happy to hear everything was going well until this point!

A few months ago there was a user who thought her dog had a chicken foot lodged somewhere. They ended up taking him to the vet and it turned out to be rat poison. He is also a finder. I'll try to find the link to that thread.

I'm sorry she's not feeling well! :(

It sounds like she got into something. How is she doing now?
