HUH Already??? OMG! 3 days ago, they were only eating chicken and beef! Sorry- I'm just a bit dumbstruck Wow! That's FANTASTIC!!!! Ok, are they eating meat bits, or still all in soupies? All mixed together, or separately?
LOL we did a grocery at asian grocery, and I just gave them a mix of meats that we had bought, because I forgot to take food out of the freezer for them So, they got a mixture of things for a few days. They are eating meat bits, I think Ren learned to stop being dumb and to chew And they got them all mixed together.
I knew they would eat the turkey, because they eat turkey baby food too

Ok! I think it's time to step it up a bit Try cutting the bits just a wee bit bigger for them, with any of the meats they like. Let me know how they do with that. The important thing now is letting them learn how to chew pieces off. That's how they exercise their jaws, and get onto bone

Wonderful! And I hope you had a good time I think I'd start them with either bones, or liver now, to see how they do with that. Chicken wings segmented(cut the middle part in two between the bones, and if you can, cut the drumette lengthwise). Cornish game hen is another good one to use. The bones are smaller, and more easily consumed. If you try the liver, chop it up into smaller bits. Some really don't like dealing with the texture of an entire liver.

It's a good idea to rule out anything medical, that's for sure. Does he throw it back up immediately? Or after a while? Do the chunk sizes matter? How fast is he eating now? The speed they eat at can cause it as well. Is he vomiting back up the chunks whole, semi- digested, or just coloured bile? Is he shedding a lot right now? A lot of questions, I know. But we really need to get to the bottom of this.
Even with blended he is puking. He may be a jerk, but he is MY jerk, and I hate seeing him feeling so yucky
He throws it up like 10-20 minutes after eating, and it is obvious that it is semi-digested. It is not just bile, it is the food and then bile on top of it. He does not shed. He has no winter/summer coat, it is just the same the whole year round. Even with the other 2, they all get Lax to make sure there are no hairballs.

Let me talk to some of the other mentors, see if we can get some ideas. I gather he doesn't do this on the kibble? Out of curiosity- when he's been just on kibble, has he had those yellowy, seedy type stools? And if so, how often?
