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.
Has anyone on here been able to feed a poultry free raw diet?

Just a note - I don't know that he has an intolerance to poultry... I just know that EVO didn't sit well with him... could have been something else in there though? Or just turkey or just chicken? Ack!

Natural Balance is being recalled because it causes vomiting and kidney problems.

Jemma actually vomitted right before I left the house this morning. She's on NB Venison + Brown Rice. HOWEVER, this bag was bought a few months ago and she had no problems eating it before and this puking might have to do with the fact that she's been very ill lately with a ruptured anal gland.

I'm just getting worried now and want to switch her over to maybe Fromm, but she's been doing so well on it.

So does anyone know if feeding them pumpkin when switching them cold turkey stops the runny poops?

Melissa, thanks! How much should I feed her with each meal? She's about 5lbs and eats twice a day, about 1/4 cup each time. And how long should I feed her the pumpkin for? Canned, right?

Yep, you want to get pure canned pumpkin. Kai weighs 20lbs and I gave him a tablespoon... so I'll say maybe 1/4 of a tablespoon for your little girl. But if you give a little extra, I don't think it really hurts anything. I gave it to him for a few days. Just until he adjusted.
