    Default Second Time EBD owner First time Raw feeder

    So thebfirst EBD I owned had all sorts of food allergies and had a constant troubles sticking to one brand that would work long enough. Just when you thought hurray! it would quickly damn! I decided I would try the Raw diet craze, yesterday I picked up my 10 Week old male from the Breeder. I was told he was on Royal Canin Puppy chiot and before we drove him back home he pooped pretty good and solid. So his first feeding this morning, I decided to go full transition to chicken with leg quarters and spinach and a touch of olive oil and a small bit of carrot. But on his first poop it was diarrhea. I heard about the detox and thougt maybe this was part of the detox process, but on his second feedingI feed him the same but added a bit of pumpkin puree but still had diarrhea. Also he has been gassy the whole day, man did that bring back memories. Did I mess up on the transition part or should it been slow? should I just continue and see if it starts to clear up in a few days? I also was considering buying what he was on before or would it a difference since I started him on the raw? any Advice would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    My French Bulldog has been in raw for years and Louie has been on raw for almost 2 years. I use commercial frozen raw thatís already balanced out. I did not do a slow transition for either of them and had no issues.

    Since your guy is so new to you, the new home could be stressful causing diarrhea. Royal Canin is not a high quality kibble. With a puppy and diarrhea, you want to make sure he does not get dehydrated.

    You could try transitioning him from Royal Canin to a better quality kibble eg. Fromm Heartland Gold Puppy Grain Free, or Open Farm Puppy ( like @Cbrugs is using ) for now, and once he's about 8 months switch him to frozen raw.

    I just put him back on Royal Canin. It's almost like he recognized the bag as soon as I got home from Pet Smart. He was so exited that he literly was about to climb on top of the bag, he couldn't wait for me to open the bag. I definitely will switch him to a more quality food even though this bag set me back 78.00 buck's.Ouch!
