My doberman puppy is just 2 months old.I made a immediete change to Raw Food once I brought her in 3days ago. Last 2days she has been pooping well.As of today....she did not pop until like very very late and its very watery.I also noticed that its hard for her to poop.Whenever she tries,there seem to be some blood and watery liquid discharged.I' m worried if the change is causing all this.
I feed her with chicken breast.She dont seem to chew them but tend to gobble them down.Could this be the cause?
She had 4 diarrhea over the last 7 hrs.I'm taking her to the vet.

I've heard of raw meat diets.. but personally i didnt think it's wise to feed raw meat to the puppy
the meat may be contaminated with bacteria & parasites. it could be cause of bloody stools and diarrhea. Furthermore, the pup's immune system may not be strong enough, and sudden change may also upset the digestive system...
try cooking the meet in plain water and you may also cut it into smaller chunks.
But, if you would like to stick to raw meat diet, Do make sure that it is free from contamination, fresh and from suitable species. Products from the market should be well sealed. Feed the puppy with carefully choosen foods to ensure it has balanced nutrition.
She is doing ok.Vet say its normal diarrhea.Most probably,chewed/ate on something that was contaminated. He asked me to skip her lunch and give her dinner and the dinner is not dog food.Some chicken with rice will be fine.
She is tired and have been sleeping all day.Trying to get her to drink more water......
what i do is that i leave the can open for a while. There's a market in selling non carbonated isotonic drinks you know, or maybe just any rehydration salt in liquid form.. Not only humans, animals can drink as well.. hmm..
She have stopped having diarrhea.But haven't had a poop since she had the med. The vet asked to give for 3days.Today is the 2nd day.I'm worried that the med might stop her form pooping...then I might have constipation issue.....She is very active(you know dobermans) compared to yesterday.Sleeps alot.Started to drink water....but need me to hand feed her 1st.
Is pumpkin good to solve this diarrhea/contipation problem?Anyone has any idea?
