    Defaultstinky pee

    I switched to EVO about a month ago, and the change in the dogs has been wonderful in many ways; the dogs' poop is tiny and Jacob has more energy than he has had in years. Tatum loves the food so much that she has overcome her nerviousness about eating in the open.

    One strange thing has occured, however. The dogs' pee smells very strong. Very strong. Is this normal? I think that excess protein is excreted out in urea, so perhaps that is what I smell.

    Does anyone have any insight regarding this?

    Thanks.

    I know with my raw fed boy his urine smell is stronger--cause he does not drink as much water. So I have added water to his evening meal. When I feed Evo I add water to it and I don't notice any smell when he urinates. Most raw fed dogs don't drink as much which is why I choose to add water to his food and his kibble.

    Thank you for your response.

    J/A/T (the dogs) seem to be drinking the same amount of water as usual, but that might be because the heat has started kicking on, and it is much, much drier in here.

    That could explain it. Thanks!
