Hello all!

I have been feeding my dogs store-bought BARF patties every evening, and a high quality dry kibble every morning for years now, but two months ago I decided to switch them completely to raw. I have been doing a lot of research and plucked up the courage to make my own raw dog food. The latest batch was a 50/50 mix of 1kg grass fed beef and 1kg turkey, mixed with ground up chicken wings and chicken feet, beef liver, lamb heart and kidneys, lightly steamed and blended carrot, zucchini and spinach, blueberries, ground raw pumpkin seeds, ground flax seeds, 3 lightly boiled eggs shells included, kelp powder and spirulina powder. I have been adding a teaspoon of kefir every evening, and I’ll give them coconut oil a few times a week. They get chicken wings once a week, as well as a recreational lamb bone once a week. I give them whole sardines, tinned mackerel, tuna and/or salmon in spring water 2-3 times per week. I try to make each new batch with different ingredients, like lamb or chicken, as well as different dog safe fruits and veg.

My oldest dog, a 6 year old cavoodle called Treacle, has vomited twice this week (greenish yellow and foamy) either very late at night or early in the morning. Her coat looks dull and slightly patchy, and her stools have been VERY mucousy from time to time. My other dog, an American cocker spaniel called Pepper, has had constipation with the previous batch I made (she seems ok stool wise with this newest batch) and has seemed a bit low in energy, not to mention her coat looks dull too. Is anyone able to advise me on what I’m doing wrong? I’m looking for answers from experienced raw feeders only. I wanted to give them time to adjust to the new diet before seeing a vet to make sure all their nutritional levels were being met.

Thank you in advance!
Sophie, Treacle and Pepper
