Default Raw Feeders I have a poo question!

Ok, so we have been raw for a few weeks now and everything is going great. I generally have his poo of the day timed. He normally goes between 1:30 and 2:00 pm after he has had his first 2 meals of the day. Well today we went to the pet store and ran around for some socialization time. While at the pet store, I allowed him to have a homemade dog biscuit from the owner (to help teach him to approach strangers with dogs). Any way, he at a tiny tip of the pinky finger piece of that and he had to go poo in like 5 minutes flat. But I have noticed that since we have changed to raw how different food effects him. It is like when we were on kibble, he ate and as soon as he was finished we had to go outside. Other CP people have posted about how often their kibble fed babies go and it is A LOT. What is it that makes their digestion of these things so different? And when you offer treats, does it effect when they have to go or how often they go or is this just a puppy thing?

The reason they take so long to go on raw is that their little bodies are busily processing and absorbing and using every bit of goodness, nutrients, enzymes and then separating out that small portion that is not absorbed and hence needs to be evacuated.

With "crap" food that process is so much quicker because there's not much work for their factory (stomach) to do when it's all said & done - it takes no time at all for their bodies to filter and expel the vast majority of pulp, grain and other foreign matter to a dog's stomach stuff out the other end.

Mine are on raw, but they go about 3-4 times ea in a 24 hour period.

That makes sense, but I still don't understand why today such a small amount caused such a quick response.

May've been sheer coincidence. I very, very rarely give mine anything other than pure raw meat/ZP or natural animal body part chews but, when I give them a chunk of pizza crust or whatever, I've not noticed whether they "go" or not.
