Default Dog not pooping after being put on raw?

I put my 9 week old puppy on raw 3 days ago. The last time he pooped was yesterday morning, he seemed to be having trouble but it was diarrhea, so I am more then a little bit concerned about him!
He has being peeing like normal just not pooping.
Any ideas of what is happening and what to do about it?

Did he have a lot of bone by any chance? Could be constipated?

Everything is ok now! He finally went.

No he hadn't had any bone yet. I fed him some bone today and he pooped 20 minutes after.

Make sure that you are feeding a balanced raw diet... 80% meat, 10% bone, 5% liver and 5% kidney or other secreting organ.

Raw fed dogs utilize what they are fed. No fillers to bulk up stool. So going once or twice a day or even skipping a day is normal. Poops will be small.

On a 9 week old baby, make sure that you are balancing your raw diet as calcium is essential for bone growth and development. If you aren't an experienced raw feeder, make sure you do your research.

When my dogs were on a pray model raw diet they only pooped 2 or 3 times a week.

Brodysmom- do you supplement or feed any berries or greens? I feed freeze dried raw now but it cost me 200$ a month to fee a 4 lb chi and a 13 lb Pekingese! Thinking of just going raw. I know the ratio, did research and read that wild canids will forage for certain berries and grass as well...thanks!
