I started my pit-mix on raw when she was a puppy. Puppies can take variety much better and easier than adults. I had her on chicken, pork, beef, pork hearts, beef hearts, duck, and a variety of organs within a month. You may want to add more variet. Variety is very important with the raw diet to ensure they are getting a good balance of nutrients.

Maybe it's a pit-bull "thing". I had my 8mo pitty on Wellness Core, then my local petstore stopped carrying it, so I switched to Orijen. She would have nothing to do with it. Just a sniff and walk away. I gave her several days, then I gave in and found another petstore with Wellness Core. "sigh".

I was told the same thing about Hula. She had terrible allergies and was told by the vet that not only do I haev to buy Science Diet prescription food, but she will need steroid shots for the rest of her life. I knew there had to be a better way. I contact a friend of mine who has 2 pitties with allergies and she got me started on raw. I started with chicken quarters for the first two weeks then slowly added another meat while decreasing the chicken. After a month I started to slowly add organs. I've never ground bone for her and she's not had any issues. I avoid choking hazards like chicken necks, cut pork beck bones, and chicken wings. I also avoid weight bearing bones of bigger livestock because they can be teeth breakers. There are some great posts about starting raw feeding on this forum. I'll see if we can bump it up for you. It's been 1 1/2 years since we started and Hula has not been to the vet since.

Food & Nutrition > Nature's Variety Instinct --> Dark green stools.

I compaired the ingredients and Instinct has dried alfalfa as one of the top ingredients, then sea kelp a little further down. Acana does not have those ingredients. It's probably the alfalfa that's doing it.

My Roxy is going to be spayed next week. They advised no playing, jumping romping etc. for 2 weeks after surgery. Maybe your Roxy just overdid it. I'm a big believer in crate training. Roxy was crated at night from the get go. Even though it was tough, I did not give her attention if she fussed about being in the crate. I didn't want to teach her that if she fussed, she would get attention. She only got attention when she was being calm and quiet. Rewarding the good behavior. I also gave her a stuffy, a soft blanket, and a hot water bottle - but be careful with the hot water bottle. Roxy chewed a hole in hers and soaked her crate!
