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

When did you start your bully on his raw diet?

My French Bulldog has been in raw for years and Louie has been on raw for almost 2 years. I use commercial frozen raw that’s 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 [MENTION=16619]Cbrugs[/MENTION] 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!
