Raw Feeding Day Four
Well, everyone pooped today! Gator pooped this morning and it was the same as it has been, mushy and slimy looking. Gypsy pooped this afternoon and it was watery with some firm chunks (GROSS) and yellowish. Lucy's was mostly firm with some watery stuff after but it was a darker color. Dark brown. I am just glad that no one is stopped up from all of the bone they are getting.
Meals were uneventful. I am still holding Gator's and trying to decide if I should just get him a whole chicken and let him work that over a few meals. It might force him to gnaw at it a bit more and he won't be able to put a whole chicken in his mouth! lol.
With the mange, I need to support Gypsy's immune system. Someone on a raw feeding group suggested to go ahead and start adding some liver even though she hasn't adjusted to the chicken yet. I am a little worried because it can cause diarrhea. I will wait and see what some others say before I do it.
Lucy is doing GREAT! Running around and chasing things. No soreness it seems. I am just thrilled at this development. I am trying to figure out where to get chicken feet as suggested by @savemejeebus. I think it would be nice to help her get the more natural (meaning NOT processed) glucosamine.
All in all things are moving along nicely! I can see from the consistency of the poops that they are not quite ready to move to a new protein. Hopefully very soon! I am trying to decide if I should move to pork or beef next. Pork is fattier....
