Is you dog struggling to poo? Are they constipated? Is the stool too loose? Is it super sticky when you try to scoop it up? Does it stink to high heaven?

Poop Tells a Story

Are your dogs struggling to poo? Are they constipated? Is the stool too loose? Is it super sticky when you try to scoop it up? Does it stink to high heaven? Is it unformed? Is there undigested food in the stool? Are there accidents in the house? These are all signs they can’t digest the food they are eating. When I transitioned both my dogs and cats over to a raw food diet the change in poop was dramatic and I actually thought something was wrong. Now what??

Then I learned that when animals eat a raw food diet they will assimilate, breakdown, and digest so much of the raw food, their stools will be considerably smaller. You’ll wonder what happened! Here’s the deal- they aren’t living on a carbohydrate smorgasbord any longer. So much of commercial food or traditional grocery store-bought food is FULL of fillers that constitute a high percentage of straight carbohydrates. No good for our carnivore and omnivore friends. Quite the contrary.

Most people don’t believe what I’m about to say until they experience it themselves. The poop doesn’t SMELL nearly as bad. I’m not kidding, I’m talking both cats and dogs. I really noticed this fact when cleaning the cat litter boxes – anyone who owns cats know this to be true. Cat poop stinks! When my cats started eating Raw Pet Food their poop literally didn’t smell. This is when you know you are on the right track!

The BARF Diet is a healthy, complete and balanced diet that will regulate your pet’s stool! 

Raw Food Tip:

An observation you will notice is that a dog finds very little value in feces from kibble fed diets.  The raw food diet has been completely utilized and all that remains is ash and fiber; predominantly as powdered bone.  The solution to coprophagia is simple - feed a raw meat diet or whole carcass meal.
