Pat & Alix: We have no idea at this time. But the vet has not yet found a culprit for his vomiting of food and bile so she's starting to think it's a food sensitivity of some sort. But we are still in the process of doing more tests.
In the mean time she wants to see if a change of diet to something like this will help.
I have concidered an all animal protein diet with a supplement I've looked at both Evangers, Wysong and others. However with most supplements I've come across they have ingredients such as several veggies/fruits and/or other animal parts. So in a sense he's still not getting a very restricted/limited diet.
Believe me, I'm not thrilled about taking him off a raw diet, but I'm willing to try it and see if by chance it DOES help.
If it is a food intollerance to too rich of a diet then I think home made or a single protein source and no extras would be the way to go. If we do find out that it's an allergy to a certain ingredient(s) then I will deal with that accordingly.
Here is a run down of the foods I'm looking at.
