Basically the rule with raw feeding is that if you see crumbly poo it means that you are feeding too much bone, or if you're seeing loose dark colored stools you are not feeding enough bone. Just adding more flesh into his diet would do the trick. You are doing everything "by the books" and that is what we suggest since its the easiest and most effective way to switch to raw. Congrats, you've gotten past what would be considered the hardest part by most people! Keep up the good work.

What else are you feeding him? If you have seen nothing but consistent normal bowel movements I would say that you're ready to start adding in more variety. I suggest either small, raw fish if he will eat them or suitable turkey parts, turkey necks cut into smaller sizes for your little dog!

You can definitely give whole fresh fish. If you are close to any Asian markets, or any ethnic market, they usually carry them for a really decent price. We get small ones for the cats, which make a perfect meal for them.

You can also feed canned fish, since some dogs wont touch raw fish. They are packed usually in brine solution or oil, but both are fine to feed. Just add them in slowly and fed along side a bone in meal that your dog already does well with.

And yes, probably most of the bone content will come in the form of poultry. You can also look into feeding things like quail or other smaller game birds. Even day old chicks!
