Lol it really is. The kibble had just been bothering me so much lately. I just kept thinking... how AWFUL it must be to eat the same dry crunchy things, day in and day out, for 10+ years. I try giving them variety when I can, by adding canned food, honey, leftover chicken or steak etc. And they go freaking NUTS for anything out of the ordinary so obviously kibble bores them too.

I wish I could switch Lucy too. The dental benefits alone would be huge for her. But as soon as I move out she'd just go right back on kibble anyway. And she's a butthead and won't touch RMBs when I try giving them to her.

Still going as smoothly as possible. Might even try some turkey this weekend since I'm running out of chicken, and she's been doing so well. I'm honestly shocked that there's been no sloppy poos!

Honestly the most difficult part is that we had to make adjustments to her feeding schedule, since no one else in my family will feed her now. But I think she's getting over it lol and so far switching to raw is looking like a good decision!

She's had loose stools the last 2 days or so but I think it's just my fault... at least I hope that's all it is hahah. She's still just been on chicken quarters but the ones she's been getting recently have been a bit larger than the batch she was started on. So her meals today were a couple ounces smaller and my fingers are crossed that does the trick. Poor girl woke me up at 4am and ran outside like she was on fire.

Also it amazes me how difficult it is to find turkey?? I don't necessarily want to buy a whole turkey and cut it up, but that seems to be the only way to buy it! I can get my hands on chicken, duck, quail, goat, lamb, pork, beef, fish, and organs and other weird stuff.... but good God you would think turkey was some unheard of exotic meat.

You could try adding more bone into her meals and see if that helps. Are you taking the fat off the chicken quarters?

Right now Im having a hard time finding Beef heart, I can find everything else, but not that darn beef heart. Im not looking forward to trying to find meat variety when Tyler and I potentially move to BC its going to suck!

I haven't been taking the fat off, but if she continues having issues then that will be the next step. Her poop has been much better today, whereas yesterday it was loose and mucusy. Yuck. So hopefully she's fixed.

Luckily I live by an Asian supermarket and they have everyyyyything. Except turkey lol. Liver, heart, kidney, spleen, uterus.... blech. It was kind of weird digging through it all because I definitely don't normally see that when I go grocery shopping hahaha.
