Default First Day of Raw Feed

Ive started raw feeding yesterday and im facing a pee and poo problem im trying to follow this Kat's Prey Model Raw Cheat Sheet. After giving her first two meal of meat, she didnt pee last night after her meal. This morning she pee but very little qty and didnt poo for the whole day. She normally pooped in the morning. At her evening walk she tries to pee (taking the position) for a longer than before period and just walk again without pee-ing. Please help.

What exactly are you feeding? In what amounts? How old is your dog and how much does he weigh? Are you feeding salt-free (unenhanced) meats?

Wheeewww... she pooped this morning (after walk though )
Shes 8 months and weight 4kgs (not a pure breed) and feed her 100gms per day (50g X 2) salt free (everything free ... lol just the meat).

What we are asking is are you sure the meat is not injected with a broth solution that contains salt. Sometimes meat does even though it just looks like just meat. Also we can help better if we knew what meat you are feeding exactly (chicken, pork, beef etc...) and what parts exactly (bone in breast, thigh, boneless, rib, back etc...). Then we can help a little bit.

Its chicken boneless, the chick is slaughtered before me so there's nothing added or injected.

Boneless chicken should be a good starting protein source. Stick with this for the first 2 weeks before introducing any other kinds, but do make a point to offer some bone-in pieces. When I was first feeding raw, Tracy's advice was to just cut up cornish hens (small chicken) as a good balance of meat and bone for the first few weeks. You'll wait a while to introduce organ meat, since it can cause loose poo's, and right now you just want her tummy to have an easy transition. Chicken necks are great bone-in pieces that are a good meal size as well. Keep it simple the first two weeks, and monitor her poops. It's normal for them not to poop as much; in fact it's a good indicator that you're doing the right thing as there's little waste! If you feed her at regular scheduled times, her potty schedule will also become very predictable! =D It'll also be the best indicator how she's doing; if she needs less bone (poop is crumbly) or more bone (if poop is too soft.) With raw meat, it's true that it is very rich in water (whereas processed foods are often dehydrated, so the dog is required to drink more) but it's always a good idea to keep hydrated and encourage water intake. If she likes the taste of fish oil, you can add a teaspoon or so into a small dish of water and offer it a few times a day as 'hydration breaks' just like you'd schedule a potty break or anything else. Sometimes they just need a little enticing to drink. It also helps to have a water dish in every room.
Welcome to raw, I'm very happy that my Cheat Sheet went to use; and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask! Keep us updated!! <3

@LostLakeLua thanks for your reply. So should i avoid liver also for the first two weeks and give her only meat and partly bone meal? And one more problem i have is that i think she is less interested in her training treats.. any suggestions for raw training treats?

You're welcome! Yes, I would suggest avoiding the liver until the two weeks are up.

As far as treats, this a thread I've had bookmarked for a while and I really love some on the ideas on it.

Training treats...raw? - Raw Food Diet Forum

For us, I like to give ZiwiPeak as training treats. I also collect samples of other grain free kibbles; they're tiny which is great and less messy. =D
