Beamers Dad-light colored stools
I noticed on another thread (I can't find it now) that you mentioned Beemer had light colored stool, which you said was from the raw food you were feeding.
I just wanted to give you a heads up that his stools should not be light colored no matter what you are feeding him. I fed my dog raw food for months and she continued to have normal brown poops.
Light colored stools are/could be a sign of liver disease. If the liver isn't functioning correctly and the bile pigments aren't secreted into the intestine, then the stool will be a light color.
Have you had his bile acids tested? I know you have talked about him being a picky eater, and on the smaller side. (also both are signs of liver disease) Please know that light colored stools are not normal and should be looked into. Please consider having his bile acids tested if you haven't already~~
I just want whats best for your Beemer-boy!!
Paws.....and reflect on what life has given you~
