My 8 year old doxie has gained 1 lb. since going raw (2 wks. ago). I've measured every meal. She gets 2 oz. a.m. and 3 oz. p.m. I now found chicken backs locally, which I will give her a.m. meal, and gets small amount liver, 1 tsp. cottage cheese, 1/2 egg, and rabbit (total 3 oz. weight). I cut out all veggies and fruit which I was giving her the first week. Any advice? Her stools are fine, teeth beautiful, and breath improved.

Cut back on the amount until you find the amount that she can eat w/out being overweight. As an older dog, she may not be active enough to eat the amount you're feeding her.

How much does she weigh?

My 7lb Chi eats 2.4 oz per day!

She's at 20.5 lbs., about 4 lbs. overweight. I'm trying to get amount right. Now she won't touch the chicken backs and I might have to supplement with calcium carbonate. I'm only 2 weeks into raw, but frustrated right now.
