    yes, it is normal with raw feed --- there is less waste as the body absorbs more since the food is not 'processed'.

    @Paul Stott
    Totally normal & also shows you are achieving your goal. His body absorbs the raw, and it has way less fillers & waste than kibble. This will be the new norm. Tyson went from massive poops 2-3 times a day to one small poop once a day!

    Hmm. I did not have this experience with Tyson, he loved it. I would think that if he doesnt feel well, he could not be hungry. Tagging @RiiSi to get her input.

    Smaller poo, which is just waste, is normal with raw food, since it has less fillers.
    You can always try if he eats dry food eather or is he just hasn't got any appetite. Is he drinking and acting normal other wise? Maybe you could try another taste of the raw food. Have you properly thawed his meal, he may like it warmer and it should not be straight from the fridge anyways.

    If he's sick, he just might not want to eat. It doesn't mean it's the food.

    What exactly is wrong with him? Have you taken him to the vet?
