Melissa W - have you spoken with your vet about the Natural Balance Notice? Here it is if you haven't seen what the actual website says (http://www.naturalbalanceinc.com ) Anyway, make sure your vet knows about it. There is a good chance that could be what was making poor Kai sick all along

I just got off the phone with my vet. He said it's possible that Kai's problems could have been caused by the NB. So, we are postponing the endoscopy, switching his diet, and we're going to see if that helps.

Make sure you send your vet bill to Natural Balance and ask for reimbursement. I doubt the will pay up but its worth a shot.

Thank you
I made a run to the pet store as soon as I posted that yesterday and came home with Fromm Duck and Sweet Potato. I always suspected that Jemma might be allergic to chicken, but I guess this bag will let me know for sure since although it's mainly duck, it contains some chicken part in the middle of the ingredients list.

I gotta spend more time to do more research first -- planning on giving her a raw diet again eventually.
