I have a 3 year old Jack Russell Terrier. I started her on a raw diet 3 days ago. She did well on the first day, feeding her chicken backs. On the second day she ate a little more of the chicken backs, but on the 3rd day she wouldn't eat anything and threw-up twice. It was a yellow slime. Today is the forth day and she still won't eat anything, even her regular food that she use to eat, not even a treat and she threw-up about 4 times, small amounts of a brown liquid substance. She is drinking water. What did I do wrong and how can I help her?

Whenever you are changing diets, you need to slowly introduce it gradually (over the course of a week). I would take her to the vet because she could have been bacterially poiisoned. Raw food can spread salmonella and ecoli, so I would get her back to normal and then do a lot more research and spend time in the raw forum here before you do this to your dog again... ^_^
