Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|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.

Hi guys, i recently put my dog on a raw diet 2-3 weeks ago. He loves it. But I have noticed in the past 4-5 days his stool kept getting softer and softer. I came from work today and found a pile of green plop on my carpet in my room. It was really wet and green. The only thing he is getting is chicken quarters, beef liver, and few baby carrots.

Are you following proper amounts(percentages) of the liver? I know that liver is uber rich, and in starting a raw diet, especially with puppies it may be just too much for their tummies. I would maybe stop for a few more weeks on the liver. Is he eating the bones? If he is not receiving enough bones, he may not be evening out the meat and organ ratio as well.

Paul, not sure if I gave you this link, but it really gives you step by step on how to start a puppy off, I believe they state to avoid organ meat until pup is all good on raw meat.....read it it will help you immensely. http://rawfeddogs.org/rawguide.html ..........step number 6 gives detail on organ meat

I don't feed raw so take this all with a grain of salt ... a very big grain of salt.
I think we all realize that liver turns green when it's 'past it's prime' but I don't think that's the cause of your problem. My curiosity got the better of me so I went looking and aha, extra or too much iron in a dogs diet can cause green stool - and what's in liver? Bingo!!
Sounds to me like he's getting too much of the liver but again, I qualify that I don't feed raw.
A major caveat here - you say that you found his feces on your carpet when you came home which suggest that he isn't crated. Rat or mouse poison will quickly alter the iron content in a dogs body - are you absolutely certain that he can't get to any?
