24 Hours Without Vomit

I'm starting to feel sorry for those of you who read this blog regularly and keep seeing the word "vomit" on your screen. Anyhow, the bottom line is that we cut back on the amount of dry food we were feeding the boys for a day and we have not found vomit since. That said, they seemed more hungry than usual last night so we went back to giving them their dry food. Still, I'm convinced that Beowulf's habit of wolfing down his kibble is the reason he was throwing up. We'll see if it happens again.

Avram, a suggestion: If they seem more hungry in the evening, why not give them more canned food? It's really better for them than dry, and you can take up the uneaten portion in half an hour or so. Or, since they're alone for a short time during the day, you could invest in one of those automatic food servers with ice compartments for keeping food fresh. Some of them have timers so you can set the time for feeding. (Say 11:30 a.m.)

If you don't want the additional expense at this time, feeding the dry food on flat plates so they have to pick out the individual kibble pieces will help against that "wolf and vomit" syndrome. It sure worked with our Bubba. :)
