Poop


Best Answer Prey Model Raw , 17 June 2014 - 01:25 PM

You can definitely add in new proteins if she's doing well. Take things slow.

Eventually you can mix proteins in each meal, it's just not a good idea in the beginning because if she gets an upset tummy, then you may not know what caused it. Go to the full post »

How often should a puppy be pooping on raw? I fed her a chicken wing/ drummie this morning at 7am and again at noon...still no bowel movement...

My boys poop 1-2 times a day, but they are 6 and 7 years old and only eat once a day. I'm not sure what you would expect from a puppy, but the puppy folks will be on to answer as soon as they can!

Is she acting normal? (side note- didn't realize you were getting her already!!)

I only have her for a few days then she will be gone for a few days then coming back... lol...her breeder had her on half kibble and half raw. Her first bm was hard and solid and a lot! Tonight my bf took her out and she pooped! I called it, bc she was making circles lol...he said it was solid but when he picked it up it was gooey...gonna wait until tomorrow to see how it looks and if it seems like diarrhea I'll add a chicken back to the meal.

I just want to say thank you! All of you, Jordann and Natalie especially for always being on top of answering questions and being supportive!

Picked up my first free haul of meet- liver, deer, chicken, and pork. All of that will be sitting in the freezer for awhile lol

Don't feel horrible. It could just be the change from the breeder's house to yours, and the change in overall diet. Stress/change can do it alone. 

 

Start back out feeding nothing but bone in chicken with all skin and fat removed for a few days. Once she's back on solid stools start adding meats back in. 

 

Have you taken her to your vet for a well check yet? Do you know when the last time she was vaccinated or dewormed?

First vaccine on Saturday. 2nd distemper on the 24th. She was vet checked on Wednesday. All healthy except an umbilical hernia. She's pooping so that's all I care about now. But I'm worried bc I'm in an apartment and there's dogs everywhere! Tried to find the cleanest patch of grass to take her on. /(

Infectious diseases are everywhere, no matter where you live or how well you "avoid" dirty areas. Chances are she's already been exposed to parvo and distemper but has adequate immunity to them from her mother. 

 

How old was she when she was vaccinated? And did she nurse adequately as a newborn puppy?

Natalie, thank you for answering my swallowing chicken wing whole question the other night lol. Today is day four on raw and we have firm stool! Yayyyyyy! Not hard, but formed... but also not liquid/gooey like the past three days.

She weights about 13 lbs. I'm not weighing what I feed. I've been giving her 1 wing and 1 drummie three times a day but they are obviously too small for her. Her mom weights 140 and dad is 180...I'm thinking she will be between 120-130 as an adult. Do you think I can start with leg quarters yet? And of she doesn't finish save it for the next feeding? I just don't know if I'm feeding enough or too little.

I would cut the leg quarters into thighs and drummies and feed those for a few days to ease her into larger meals. Are you still taking all the skin and fat off?

Yes still taking all fat and skin off. I cut the quarter into thighs and drummies. She had the thigh this morning and will have a drummie this afternoon and vice versa for dinner. When should I start leaving more skin and fat?

Yayy! So glad to hear! :)

 

I started adding it in verrrrrrry slowly after having a couple days worth of good solid poops. When trimming, say a leg quarter I left a little bit more and more starting on the bony leg part

I already skinned 6 leg quarters since she's going back to the breeders for a week. I will start with fat next week when she comes back.

You may just have a stubborn one, and she is only a very young puppy so they forget that they have to pee and just go on the spot. In my family's experience for some reason the girls were always the tougher ones to housebreak, especially teaching them that when they GO OUTSIDE they have to pee lol

 

The joys of puppyhood :P Just be consistent with teaching where to pee and how you're gonna teach her to let you know when she needs to go and take out every hour or two and after meals, naps, playtime etc
