Default Help! What to feed now?

Kai and Zoey eat NB Venison and Brown Rice, and obviously that has to stop right away. What the hell should I feed now? I have to make a quick decision and switch them cold turkey. Ack! This is horrible!

Kai has been on NB since the first of the year. His chronic vomiting has gone on since November of last year, but it sort of makes you wonder about how this has been affecting him in the last few months. Zoey has seemed fine, but she seems to have more of an iron gullet. It doesn't mean that there isn't anything wrong with the food.

I am freaking out. I have to switch them today. This makes me want to start feeding raw, but I have no clue what I'm doing!

So, if anyone can recommend a food I can switch them to I would so appreciate it. Kai doesn't do well on poultry. As of now, I'm thinking Timberwolf Organics. Money is not an object and I can most likely find any food somewhere around here.

God, I'm so pissed!

Yeah, he didn't do well at all on Evo. From what I can tell, he doesn't do poultry or lamb. Nature's Variety Lamb formula made him throw up. He also won't eat CN Herring and Sweet Potato or the Pinnacle Fish formula.

Hmm... I was going to suggest CN herring and sweet potato as that's what we just switched Beau to as well. Canidae has also worked well for us but it has poultry and lamb in it.

Right now I'm really starting to want to feed raw...

Hey Melissa I know you have tried him on EVO, but what about the EVO RM formula ?? I dont know if it would make a difference or not ??

Or the TWO Black Forest formula (Its Venison)

That's a good idea, Jess. Thanks for the suggestion.

Ack! Waiting for the vet to call back! He's at lunch.

Relax...your dogs haven't seen any ill effects, right? Discontinue the feeding but I don't think this needs to be the biggest emergency in the world.

As suggested, the California Natural Herring and Sweet Potato would be a good choice. Canidae also makes a Lamb and Rice that contains no poultry.

The following are poultry free:

Well, Kai has been chronically vomiting and was scheduled for an endoscopy on Tuesday. Don't know if it's related or not yet.

Thanks for posting that list... Zoey is going to have to go on a kibble. But I think Kai may still go raw or home cooked.

I don't know what to tell you!

I do know that this bag of EVO will be the last kibble I buy until things get sorted out with all these recalls.
