Chicken is fine! But don't add in other proteins like beef or pork until this soft stool is behind you and she's doing well on the chicken. Sorry should have clarified that better.

There's a website, somewhere, I forget where, that has a big, long explanation of "poo". LOL! It explains how to adjust your bone/meat/organ ratios according to "the state of the poo". I'm sure someone here knows the site I'm talking about but I'll see if I can find it. The general idea of that site was that all dogs are different and "know thy dog" is one's mantra.

If I remember right, it said that it can be a little confusing, in the beginning, because their bodies have to re-adjust and "clean up" from the previous diet - to get back to "normal". But that might have been another site. I was all OVER the cotton-pickin internet before I finally found this site! But the poo site is, I think, a good reference, and I want to find it again.

With all due respect to the raw food enthusiasts, we are very glad that we have gone the dry food route (Nutro Natural Choice Small Breed Adult). Hilton Head Humane had been feeding him dry food, and we simply transitioned to the Nutro. Luckily, Simcha is not a fussy eater, and he consumes his half cup twice daily all at one brief sitting - he weighs 13 lbs, and weight seems to be remaining steady. As responsible community members, we find ourselves continually inspecting what we scoop up in the plastic bags. It always appears to be solid pieces, which is a good thing from our viewpoint.

I suppose the raw food approach does work, but it appears to require significant time and effort. If our little guy is happy and healthy on dry food, and never experiences loose stools, that is fine with us.

P.S.: I never imagined I would spend my golden years inspecting dog poop. The future can be so hard to predict.
