Have u tried eggs with rice? My gsd used to refuse the kibble coz i fed him both time this dry food but then i tried rice with eggs he finish it within a minute and as far stool is concern it is great.in the morning i give him bread with 500gm milk and in the evening rice or porridge with 4 boiled eggs crumbled and he is fine now. Being with gsd i observed one thing that they are very choosy eater unlike labrador so change the feeding menu every week.

Debby, first of all, there's no hard & fast rule that all dogs adjust with boiled form of food. My Labrador is fed 50gms of bonesless chicken mixed with rice ( khichri type ). We divide the meal into two and offer in the Noon and Evening. He also gives out more or less loose stool. The reason is very obvious, boiling converts the soft chicken and rice almost into sub-liquid so stools have to be a little loose as well.
Loose stools can be a problem as they may be difficult to clean off as compared to intact faeces which can be easily picked up using a scooper.
If you have fed raw food to your dog and it suites him, then what made you switch to boiled rice and chicken.Try to switch back to raw. Also, are you adding chicken liver into the meal? Try to remove it as it may be a culprit. Also, try to add raw bones which should give some solid base to his diet and improve the quality of the stool.

navjot jee,,,, i fed raw for almost 7 8 months....then suddenly he caught a severe bloody diarrhoea so he was on boiled food.... he was doing fine on raw.... i gav him raw mutton and boneless chicken... his stools were good...tight.... now since he has got the taste of boiled food he refuses raw chicken..... neway i think i will try again with raw mutton... he loves raw mutton very much. just i m concerned that raw mutton may cause a diarrhoea again.

Debbie you feel that your dog is happy with boiled chicken, then what's the problem. Give him boiled chicken. As far as loose stools is concerned, it's not such a big issue as long as your dog has been taught the basic thing that he should pop out of the home. Loose stool is just a condition not a problem. If you do insist feeding raw to him, then try one more time and moniter his health, if he shows signs of illness, immediately stop the BARF and permanently switch back to boiled chicken. But, I'd suggest you to continue to keep him on boiled chicken as that's what he likes the most.
You can feed banana but in small quantities there's no problem. You also asked how much you should feed your dog. The golden rule is the quantity should be 10% of your dog's body weight.

it keeps the dogs well. puppies grow very fast and they have a very high metabolism so u have to feed them 4 times. but as the dog grows up the metabolism slows down. so u have to feed him twice or even better once. but the problem is, dogs like great dane, alsacian etc are deep chested dogs and may develop canine bloat which is a fatal disease. so u hav to feed them twice. i am feeding tintin twice once morn, and then at night. however, i give him some biscuits in the evening as snacks. and touch wood, he is well now. and i hav again started raw.
