Yes he is crated, havent seen him eat any of his stool yet. He is rarely left alone. We live on 5 acres so my husband or I always stay outside with him, just incase. And if he isnt outside, he is inside with us.
I am not adding anything to the patties or the canidae. Although the patties have fruit and veggies mixed in. I was adding some nupro to his kibble but we ran out and I couldnt find it locally so while I am waiting for my order of nupro, I found some missing link where I bought the Nature's Variety. But he doesn't like it. So basically no, nothing extra...just patties in am and kibble in pm.
Well i dont really know why I was separating the patty from kibble. I guess because I read so many thing about bloat that I was scared, since being fairly new to the whole raw thing. But i did read that I could add water to the kibble and wait for it to swell first then feed it. But again wasnt exactly sure, so I was being cautious.
But... update... I took him out just a minute ago and he went. Was normal, but smaller. Last night when I gave him his kibble I mixed 2 teaspoons of canned pumpkin because I was worried he was constipated, must have helped, i guess.
Also, am I feeding the right amounts? I have just been following the feeding guidelines on both Nature's Variety and the Canidae ALS. He is about 60 lbs, now. 1- 8oz patty and 1.5 cups of kibble. If I did mix the kibble and raw together, do you think he would be fine on one meal, or would breaking the same amount into two meals be better? Thanks so much for the help, appreciate it.
