1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Good Evening everyone, I have a question for a couple of weeks I have been feeding Bob Nature's Variety Chicken Formula Instinct Raw Frozen Diet along with orjen kibble. I give him about a cup and half along with cup of Orjen. Tonight for the first time he threw up everything and got me worried. He is pooping fine still seems alert but my question is Does anyone have any information on this food. Is it something I should worry about. The only difference this weekend is I gave him his Trifextis pill nothing different. Should I call the vet? Wait to see if something else happens??

Thank you for your time.

If this is the first time he vomits his food after being on it for 2 weeks, then I'd guess it's something else besides the food. Could be a fluke, maybe he ate something he shouldn't have, who knows.

I wouldn't call the vet or get worked up over a single incident. When you feed the raw and kibble, do you feed them as separate meals? Feeding them separately is often recommended since they digest at different rates to keep the food moving.

Triflexis and comfortis will cause vomiting if not taken with food. As well as its not usual for dogs to have reactions to it.

If Bob is close to the lower weight limit for the dosage of Trifexis he's on, you might think about dropping to the next lower dosage. I'd keep an eye on him and watch for trends over the next couple months with the Trifexis, and if it keeps happening adjust the dosage. We had to do that for Lulu, even though she's 22-23 lbs normally, her stomach couldn't handle the 20-40 lb dosage. Hopefully it's just a one time occurrence though!

And yet, you never lose sight of how absolutely extraordinary that very ordinariness is, how difficult, remarkable and rewarding that fight to be 'just like everybody else' has been."  -Gwen Cooper, "Homer's Odyssey"

I lucked out and got a freezer full of Instinct Raw Food that had partially thawed due to a freezer door cracking at the store for only $40! I've been feeding it to my girls for a few weeks now and they've been fine.

Thank you everyone for your comments. I think I am an overprotective mother. After all he deserves.

I usually feed him the raw food first about the cup and half then the kibble Orjen. He is 76 pounds now and I am trying not to give him any treats. I had dehydrated sweet potatoes and that is the only other thing he had. After about 2 hours he started eating his kibble and kept it down. I think I was just panicking. Thank you again

instinct Raw is generally considered a high quality store bought raw diet. It is one of the only ones that doesn't use synthetic minerals and instead gets them from natural clay from the earth. Sounds like you figured out that is was a fluke but I just wanted to re-affirm to you that you are feeding a good quality food Smile
