Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

@TwisterII yeah we're going to use some chicken gizzard and beef heart to add in some variety of muscle meats, for the secreting organs it'll probably be chicken liver and/or beef kidney (depending on how often we can acquire it).

His poop looks normal it's just he seems to be skipping every other day and when we do see him defecate it's like 2-3 chunks around the size of a quarter to dollar coin? I'm just worried he's backed up. Based on his percentages, with bone it comes out to 0.265 lbs of bone and he almost always hits that or is still in the 0.20's.

Huh...seems a bit small for every other day poops =P.  I would definitely cut down on bone and maybe start introducing some pumpkin or probiotic or tripe to get him moving a bit.  Echo's poops are definitely typically on the drier side so I don't feed more than 10% bone content otherwise it gets really crumbly.  

His poop's are super moist and are not gray nor white at all, they look pretty much the same before the diet... should we still back off the bone amount?

oh...i just assumed they were dry...no, if they're dark brown and moist and you can easily press them down than I would keep to your routine. I also think you mentioned that you would introduce organs and gizzards and stuff soon too...so that will help. P.S. if you can find tripe (not the bleached asian kind), definitely add that in too! It's super stinky but soooo good for them and will also soften poops up!

@Husky911 nope! just the typical brownish DM that's easily squished or pressed down. I surprisingly (besides the less pooping) haven't seen much change concerning the looks of his poop.

Yes we just now have added chicken liver and gizzards to his meals, which will help change it up. I have been looking into beef green tripe! sadly it looks like i can really only get it online, but it'll be worth it cause it's for the betterment of his health Smile i think the websites i was checking out was we feed raw and raw feeding miami, just because i don't have any meat farmers/butchers nor co ops in my area Sad
