Default Day 2 on Raw. Hasn't gone well so far

Well it's the 2nd morning on raw and it hasn't gone to well.
Phoebe my pug ate all hers (nice chucky chicken thigh with abit of bone) and she has threw the lot up. To be honest it looked like more than what I gave her.
Now what do I do with her because her next meal is at tea time? Do I wait until then before giving her more?

Charlie didn't seem to excited about having his. He ate the meaty bit but left the boney bit. He does like to hide his food but I can't let him hide raw meat. Anyway he has kept his down so far so atleast I know he shouldn't be to hungry.

So I don't know what to do now. Everytime I go in the kitchen they're following me, I suppose they think they're having some more.

The pug may have a sensitivity to chicken if he is continually vomiting it up. That's not normal.

Sometimes it takes them awhile to catch on that they eat the bones too. Just keep doing what you're doing and see. Obviously take away the bone if he is burying it. Sometimes you can hold it in your hand and put him on your lap and let him gnaw on it that way to give him the idea that it is to be eaten.

Not every dog thrives on a raw diet. It's not for everyone, although I think it is the perfect diet for the vast majority of dogs.

I will stick at it and see how they go.

What do I do though if she is sick? Do I not feed again until the next meal time?

If she vomits after eating, don't feed anything until the next time. If she vomits again, then I'd say she can't tolerate chicken.

I've been researching the raw diet lately & just read on a book that if your dog hides/buries their food they are being over fed. Just a thought on the hiding food comment.

I hope it starts going a bit better for your pups - good for you in going raw!

Well tea time has gone better . Phoebe (pug) has kept in down this time. I hand fed her though because she has a tendancy to gulp it down. Maybe thats why she was sick this morning. She is terrible with food, no manners, lol

So all good. I will see what tomorrow brings.

Yay!!! That is great news. Yes, sometimes they eat too fast and then just hork it back up. There is a learning curve with this method of feeding, you are doing great.

My mum's pugs are soooo terrible with theirs as well! Otis eats in like 5 seconds flat. It's ridiculous!!! I'm glad Pheobe was able to keep the food down though!
