Everybody poops and believe it or not as gross as it may be poop can really tell you a lot about what your companion is consuming, how they are digestion and what proportion of ingredients you are using.


If you don’t already, watching your companion’s feces is extremely important. It can be very telling on what they are eating, how they are feeling and if they need more or less of a particular ingredient. When raw feeding you will notice a decrease in the frequency, size and smell of your companion’s feces.


Normal feces should be small, firm and brown with little to no smell



Very hard and white- too much bone

Loose- to little bone and/or too much fat

Loose and stinky-too much organ


White-too much bone

Yellow-diet is high in chicken

Dark brown- consumption of red meats and organs which are blood rich



Large-less of the food stuff is being absorbed and used

Small- more of the food stuff is being absorbed and used


Other Things in It:

Mucous-can be seen in companions new to raw feeding as the body is protecting itself from any dangerous items. This will decrease as your companion adjusts.


Worms-more times than not indicates a detoxification of the body and typically (if meat is properly sourced and kept) is NOT caused from raw feeding.


Not poop related but, due to the high moisture content of raw feeding, while your companion will produce feces less frequently, their urine production will increase. This is completely normal and healthy!
