POOP OF A RAW FED DOG

As we all know, your dog's poop is one of the best indicators of your dog's health.

When I was researching raw feeding, most articles told me that your raw fed dog will produce significantly smaller amounts of poop.

They also try to describe what the poop of a raw fed dog should look like, but if you are new to raw feeding, you will still be very uncertain on what it should look like.


And so to help those of you who are new to raw feeding, here is a picture of one of my kids poop - yes I know it's gross - but hopefully it'll give you an idea of what to expect from your raw fed dog. Its a bit darker than usual cause they had red meat the day before. But as you can see it really is a very small amount which shows how well their tummies are digesting their raw food. :-)

The poop should also be very firm (sometimes even hard if they have had more bone) and is generally quite crumbly. It also degrades really quickly if left out in the garden compared to kibble fed poops which does not seem to degrade even after a few days - and this I know for a fact from all the poop (which irresponsible dog owners cannot be bothered to pick up) that litters the pathways and grass in our housing area! 

Additionally, the poop of a raw fed dog is not stinky! This is definitely a huge plus point!
