I was actually surprised at how easily they slipped into the raw meat behavior. I mean, they've only ever had kibble their whole lives, so to plonk down this hunk of raw, virtually odorless, slimy.....stuff......and expect them to know what to do with it, was a bit of a stretch for me, so it was particularly surprising that they went after the chicken with such gusto. It took a bit longer with Tango, but I expected that really....Jazz is the chewer, Tango doesn't care much for any of the chewies, bully sticks etc. that I've provided them both with.
Jazz started in on his with such enthusiasm that I figured it'd be gone in three bites! What did take me aback a bit was the NOISE!
I should have expected it I guess, but I cringed the first few times I heard bone crunching, and had to restrain myself from checking things out and making sure that was chicken bone I was hearing cracking, and not their teeth!
And this morning, I was pleasantly surprised again. I'd expected some change in their poop....more smell and softer. Couldn't tell the difference! Which was good, because if I'm going to do this as a regular thing, I was concerned what schedule to feed them on so I could be around to deal with the runs after, make sure they didn't have access to the couch, carpet etc. With it not seeming to affect their digestion, it makes things easier.
