I’ve posted a couple times about the pet food recalls in the last week or so. Of course it was a week in before it occurred to me that I feed the CATS Taste of the Wild kibble….course, the media keeps saying its a DOG food recall, and certainly most of the specific formulas mentioned are dog food. But some of them don’t specify. So two days ago I called TOTW, and sure enough, not only is cat kibble included, the bag I have on hand is ALSO included.
ARG!! Getting Janie to eat something new is HELL, even when I can use the old food to gradually intro the new. But with her poor kidneys I don’t dare feed her any more of the potentially contaminated food. So that means a cold turkey switch. Picked up a small bag of Earthborn (since as far as I can find out they don’t have any relationship with Diamond), and made note of a couple other brands I’d be willing to try.
Well, she ate some last night….and now she’s puking flem. Pancreatitis most likely. Quite possibly set off by the new food. Whether because of something about the food itself, or just the cold turkey change I have no idea. And of course the vet is closed for the night. I could make it an ER visit, but I know from experience that if it IS a pancreatitis flairup none of the standard treatments will help her, and since she isn’t otherwise acting in poor health its not worth dragging her down there.
