I don't know guys, I would not want to be fasted once a week.

I'm sure she'd eat more if given the chance, but I wanted to start slow. Once her poos become normal, I think I'll start introducing organ meat. That's scary! Where to start???

You are not a dog.
Your digestive system is VERY different than a dog's.Dogs in the wild go days without eating. Fasting once a week is very good for their system.
You dont have to do diddly squat, but fasting is NOT cruel.
Fasting for Dogs
Fasting is the single greatest natural healing therapy.
Fasting is the avoidance of all solid food, promoting the intake of fluids. The most stringent form of fasting allows only for water as the sole liquid in the diet.
Fasting allows energy to be diverted away from digestion and into the healing process. It increases the process of elimination and helps the digestive tract to rest and recuperate by allowing the stomach, intestines, pancreas, kidneys, liver and gallbladder to deal with the nitrogen waste from meat consumption.
Once the body has cleansed itself of wastes, it is able to assimilate the more healthful nutrients found in a natural, raw diet and gain a higher state of health. Fasting is an important corrective and rejuvenative process in the cycle of nutrition.
The benefits of fasting include:
Relaxes and energizes the body and mind
Rests the digestive organs
Improves the senses
Builds resistance to disease
