how many bones do you give your dogs? A little less bone, some canned pumpkin and maybe some (fish) oil, probably do the trick :wink:

I follow the whole prey model:

10-20% organ
10-20 % bones
60-80 % meat

Connie's out this week; perhaps some others can help out Steve?

Steve, you might want to post what you are feeding, particularly the amount of bone the dog's getting.

They are probably getting to much bone Steve....welcome to the world of poop inspectors :eek: If it crumbles when you lightly touch it with a pooper scooper or shovel (or whatever you may be using) then I would guess to much bone - add more meat. I give mine about a teaspoon of pumpkin (pure pumpkin - not the mixture for a pie).

Disclaimer: I've only been feeding raw for about 2 1/2 months, as you well know so I'm by no means an expert. :)

ok im not used to the not poopin so much thing. but both dogs had normal stools today color and all. i did give them some fish oil and pumpkin but they pooped about 20 mins after diner so i doubt it was that unless it moves that quick. thanx everyone and lacey for your help.
