I recently ordered 20 pounds of beef from mypetcarnivore.com. as you know the bone and organs are already ground in. The chis are now haveing that hard kind of white colored stool. I dunno if it is because they are not used to that much bone. Do you think their bodies will adjust? I have been added in extra liver to some of their meals but it is not working.

Try feeding just meat without bone or liver & kidneys for a few days, that should help out.

One of my boys gets really soft stool if he eats too much meat & since he won't eat bone I mix crushed egg shells with his meat & organs.

I guess I will have to go buy extra meat. The meat I bought from that website is meat bone and organs all ground up together, so I cant separate it. Feeding raw has been such a struggle to find the right balance. I was hoping what I bought from this site was going to be to be more convenient for me and everything all balanced.

Just have meat or liver/kidney in the freezer ready in case this happens again.

It may be a bit more than feeding a processed dog food but I think its 100% per better.

Do you know what the percentage of bone is in the mixture? A lot of times its more than 10%. A white chalky stool indicates too much bone as its an excretion of the calcium. It's not harmful or anything, but I wouldn't want chalky white stools every day.

Can you do the mixture one day and alternate with plain meat? That would cut the amount of bone down significantly.
