Decided to transition to raw due to health reasons Ronnie is now 2 and we started him on 4 days of tripe then we added a protein of turkey and tripe. In the first 4 days he was pooping fine. Now today he has t pooped for 32 hours he’s drinking and peeing and keen to eat but has been lethargic today it’s been a week today since the whole transition and feel like it’s not going right for us. He’s not on complete raw yet (bone or offal) due to be done in the next few days. Is this all normal behaviour for raw fed dogs

Lethargy is not normal. But, give it more than just a day. There are many reasons the dog gets lethargic. One reason could be not enough food.

No poop for a day or 2 is normal. Raw fed dogs have very small poops.

Is this the only concern that is making you feel it's not going right for you? Or are you stressed about something else? Like maybe a general feeling of "something ain't right"?

Hey unfortunately we have had to put him back on kibble he had a severe allergic reaction to a protein we think was possibly duck or turkey. He’s been much better since we done this

My girl had issue with raw due to colitis, we had to give her Tylan powder to help
