RichardH Posted April 2, 2013 Report Share Posted April 2, 2013 When I got Nessie from the SPCA, she was being fed Science Diet. I'm told that's a pretty gross food that's full of stuff she doesn't need. So I switched her to Orijen 80/20 adult in late 2012. She's got a nice low and stable weight, nice looking fur and stools seemed fine if not a bit on the hard side. This is where it gets strange, though. Orijen's factory burned down at some point last year and I had been using the old 5.5lb bags that were black with blue halftone photographic art on them. My LPS has gotten a new shipment (in smaller, 5lb bags) - probably the latest version of the food, but It's still the 80-20 adult formula. I did the same switch over I did with the Science Diet: about 10 days of blending between the kibble. But I now have a big problem, Ness has gotten very loose stool after feedings since the switch, but she's been otherwise healthy and happy. There hasn't been a lot of stress or anything around the house, so the only variable would seem to be food. I cooked up some rice and boiled chicken and all is fine again for the last 3 or 4 days. I might go see if I can track down the 2012 style food around town, but it's not going to last forever. I guess it's time to change food brands? I can't imagine the formula changed that much? What a pain! -Rich Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
