Eww...rancid meat! I wouldn't take a chance with food that has been thawed and in the fridge for three days much less one that sits out thawed out without refrigeration. Yuck! I know you technically probably could but uck. lol. I would go buy a 7 day cooler to store it in. It will stay frozen in the freezer for a while and then you can transfer it to the cooler. If the power goes out that is.
UGGHHHHHH....never thought of what am I gonna do if the power goes off! But luckily here we are never without longer than 24 hours.
My husband picked up the puke, so he didnt eat it....
He started working on a whole (no organs, no skin, no head, no feet) fryer chicken...so hard to tell when its enough
8 pm - 8 oz of gizzards (think he had enough bone)
ive seen mine dig up a meaty bone id given her a week before and start eating it with no ill effects they really are disgusting creatures lol,karen
Conan has been having quite the soft stool lately. Diarrhea quality. Not totally just liquid but definitely ends up in a chunky mass. I'm hoping (assuming) that is probably due to just overall stress of the change in home, environment, and even food as I've been feeding him some ground up raw chicken/bone and a bit of beef offal to start.
He sometimes seems like he's gonna throw up, but then ends up either stopping or finishing with nothing coming out.
Should I be worried at all? Second day and I'm already wondering what's goin on! I'm THINKING it's nothing but figured I'd ask the experts.
EDIT: Also, he's eating, but not as much as I'd have hoped. Again, nerves?
Stig started the diet with ground up chicken w/ bone and tripe and he had runny poops as well. It was most likely because we couldn't control the bone content, which he needed more of in the beginning. I suggest adding more bone. Don't worry, it won't hurt if he eats more bone than meat for now. Some dogs just need more in the beginning. At this moment, Stig can eat a meal with very little or no bone at all. He started raw back in Nov/Dec 2010.
How much is Conan eating? We also found that Stig did best with the 2% of adult weight range, so he gets approx 1lb everyday. Runny poops could be a sign of too much food too.
Do you belong to the Yahoo rawfeeding group? It's a fantastic source of info. Lots of newbs asking questions and pro amateurs answering them.

I figured if there was gonna be a change, to maybe give some more bone.
He's probably only eaten maybe 1/2 lb of food in the last day and a half. First day he didn't eat anything until the very end of the day. He didn't even finish it.
Today, he went at the leftovers, ate a good amount of it but still left some. I'm hoping he'll eat the rest in his next meal. But I was using 5% his body weight atm, and he's 10lbs. So a bit more than 1/2lb, so definitely not an overeating situation. I think today he'll finish off his bowl mid-day and have a bit more before bed. Hopefully!
@savemejeebus gave great advice. I would also add bone. Give him a piece of whole chicken to get that bone in there. I would do a leg quarter or even thigh if he is only 10lbs he can handle that.
Good luck and don't give up. The yahoo groups are awesome too and they can really help you if you need it.
