    DefaultSoft-serve ice cream consistency poos after raw meaty bone?

    Hi all!

    Henery has been eating prepackaged raw for almost a year now, and doing very well. I will, occasionally, feed him beef or venison raw meaty neckbones. He's had these before with no problems.

    Last night I gave him one, and this morning he had a normal poo, but later today he's had 2 few soft-serve-ice-cream-poos (formed enough that I can pick up, but soft)... and it looks almost like the poo is covered in mucous?? He seems otherwise fine, running around, eating and drinking well, just mushy poos. Normally his poos after bones are hard!!

    Do I just chalk it up to his tummy being off after this particular bone? Or should I be worried?

    Thanks, in advance!

    I'm pretty sure I've heard mucous is generally not normal, but someone who knows better can probably help you out. Riley gets soft stools somewhat often from things he eats, but I can't say I've seen mucous in or on them.

    If I forget to give Caleb some digestive enzymes with his RMB that is what he gets, too. So, whenever he gets a RMB he gets his digestive enzyme.

    Ah ha! What kind of digestive enzymes do you give Caleb?

    I use In Clover's Optagest. He does well on it. Better than Ark Natural's digestive enzyme.

    In Clover might have a store locater on their website. If you can't find it close and really want some I could probably ship you some since I do carry it in my training center.

    They may have been a bit large too and you just overfed him.
    Mine will often get those stools after a good marrow bone feast.

    Yeah, it was a bigger bone! Thanks everyone! You've put my mind at ease!

    Happy to report that poos today are normal!

    Susan, I'll look online for the Optagest!

    Mine too. I don't think it is cause for concern.
