Raw Feeders...Damita vomiting?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Damita has been eating premade NVP raw. Lamb(grudgingly) & beef medallions. Last night, she vomited quite a bit after eating. Today, she vomited her lunch/breakfast. I've got her eating again, but it's only half a medallion & if this stays down, that's all she's eaten all day.

The vet is not concerned....thinks it could be Jade coming home. Damita hasn't seen Jade yet. OK, bad choice of words....she's blind. Damita has yet to realize Jade is in the house....she doesn't even react when Jade starts meowing.

Could it be the switch from Beef medallions to Lamb medallions? I need to take her to the vet to get her weighed....she seems thinner. I pray she's still at 8 lbs.

Hmm, sometimes Bagheera vomits when she eats raw.. but then she vomits regularly. She's got one of those unsteady stomachs. She does seem to be more affected by like beef or lamb, then by chicken. I have no issues with the others, though, barring the normal stuff.. boycotting and screaming and stomping of feet.

Might just be that that particular batch didn't agree with her. Or maybe her tummy is a little troubled at the moment and will be fine in a day or so.

Good luck!

I think your suspicion about the lamb is correct. Sharky said something about that...I think it's not a sensitive tummy meat. Paisley brought hers back up one time and she still won't eat it.

*Races upstaris to thaw out some beef* How can I go about thawing beef medallions quickly? If I put them in the fridge....it'll be tomorrow before they're thawed!

Stick them in slightly warmer than your hand water. IOW, lukewarm. I toss mine in a plastic ziplock bag and then in water, flipping them frequently. It should only take like maybe 10 minutes or so. This works for my actual raw meat, so I can't see any reason why it wouldn't work for medallions. If the water cools before they're thawed.. add more warm till it's about the right temp again. Don't make it too hot though, or it will cook the meat.

Lamb is the HARDEST to digest of the meats

Yes, Heather's method is good. If you have more time, even cold tap water will work ...I timed it at about an hour IIRC. Beef seems to thaw a little slower than lamb or chicken (less juicy I guess), though ...but it shouldn't take long.

Good! Then I can give her beef for supper. I gotta go finish cleaning the vomit outta the carpet now. It was projectile & she walked all over.

LOL, that's the exact reason I bought a rugdoctor. For only $50 a month you can have clean carpets too..

Nature's Miracle seems to have got most of it out. I sprayed a little more on & covered the spots so no pets will get into it....I'll leave that sit overnight.

Lamb makes for messy vomit, too. All I have is my liquid vomit scooper an extra wide plastic putty knife... and a spray bottle of cleaner.

Maybe I need a rug doctor.

Just a thought...but it's raw meat & in my carpet....do I need to be worried about that?

Well, I don't know. I have a cat tree, which is where Kahn got used to eating his food, and now I wonder about how safe it is. I need to rug doctor it.. he pulls his raw out of his dish and then drops it, piece by piece on the cat tree. I've since started putting him over with Joyeux in the kitchen to eat, but I worried about that myself.

I actually got the rug doctor because the dog (great dane) had so many issues and if you just looked at her wrong, no matter that she'd been here for two years.. she'd fear pittle ... and let me tell you, pittle for a great dane is much like saying that a river is really just a little brook... I had to do something, she was always pittling.. So, right after we got the rug doctor, she killed Tavi (thanksgiving, no less) and we got rid of her.. but it doesn't hurt to have it anyway, I guess.

Technically, I don't know. My feeling is when I'm able to *really* make the stain go away, I feel better about it...you know?

Unfortunately, my kitchen has "carpet tile" in it now...sorta like the stuff you always see in airports...and mine do some food dragging on that too. I do my best to catch that and clean up after them, that's all I can do for now. Someday I'll have a hard floor again...
