Know your Poo

Variation in poop color and consistency is perfectly normal and to be expected, unless the dog is eating the exact same thing, day in and day out.  Unless a dog cannot control their bowel movements, has several liquid stools, or is passing bright red blood, try not to over think or over-complicate things.

If you think your dog is straining to much try adding in more water to diet and some fibre.

Transitioning to Raw food

When first transitioning to Raw food you may experience white poop or bone fragments in poop. Adding a digestive enzyme such as pancreas gizzards and/or green tripe during the transition may help break down bone better.
