I started Jewel on pre-made raw a couple weeks ago and this morning her poop was a green/yellow colour!

I've recently started adding salmon oil, am I using too much?

She also had a kong yesterday with cooked turkey, yogurt and peanut butter.

She seems fine otherwise.

Weird-colored poop happens. I wouldn't sweat it unless it's accompanied by other symptoms. White meats come out lighter, red meats come out darker, and bloody meat/organ can come out very dark (almost black).

But grass always comes out green. silenced

Duke sometimes has black-and-tan poop if he gets a meal of, say, turkey followed by venison. With kibble, everything comes out looking the same...not so with raw.

Bet it was the kong. No snacks for a couple days until poop looks normal again. If things stay bad then back to skinned bony chicken until they look good again.
