Let's face it, it's not fun trying to get that out of your lawn. Scooping and scraping as quick as you can because you have to hold your breath the entire time due to the stench. Your entire yard stinks, the neighbors make comments about the odor (they must think you never scoop the poop) and it attracts flies making your yard a no go zone. Oh, and there's always the experience of stepping on one of those landmines, and of course it will be at the most inopportune time possible. If your pet is a cat you know the fun of dealing with the smell of a litter box in the house. Do you have anxiety about your pet pooping in a public place and it causing people to hold their noses and look in disgust?
Dealing with our pet's feces does not have to be a traumatic experience!
Time and time again, the most frequent comment I hear from pet owners after they have made the switch to a raw diet is the change in their animals stool. So many owners are quite astounded at the difference. They can't believe the lack of smell, and the reliably of having well formed stools. I often hear that if this was the only benefit to feeding raw it would be more than reason enough to change the diet and if they had known this before they would have switched a long time ago!
A smelly, poorly formed stool is not normal or healthy. It is a sign of illness and needs to be addressed. When we feed inappropriate packaged foods the effects will be seen in the health of our animals. The stool is a direct reflection of the health of the gastrointestinal system and tells us a lot about our pet's state of health/illness.
