    If I'm out of line here I do apologise, but, I can understand being short of money,I'm just wondering where the money came from to buy the pup in the first place and now not far down the track it needs urgent attention from a vet.

    I have to say I have a lot of dogs come through here, and I have absolutely no idea what they have been fed previously (sometimes I wonder if at all). SO there is NEVER a slowly add new food/slowly remove old food. I have NEVER EVER had any sort of reaction to a food change - ever. Simple. I guess some dogs may react to cheap food full of fillers, but I have to say that I can't see too much wrong in Natures Gift, in fact I occassionally buy a tin or a pack of this for my own dogs as the LOVE it!!

    So, IMO, definately not the food!!

    I agree with everyone else, get that dog to the vet!!!

    Ditto! When i worked in the kennels plenty of dogs would go from their food at home, to what we had and none ever had a problem. My dogs get such a mix up, they also dont react at all to any food change! I have never done the slow thing, they just get what they are given and cope fine!

    well all i know is with horses if you suddenely change foods you can give them colic (a very painful bowl/stomach complaint that can be fatal).. so with all my animals if i change their food i do it slowly it hasnt hurt them yet!! but each to their own, and what ever works for you... it just seemed a coincidence that the food change coensided with the sick dog. it may not have been the cause but you can put it up there with something worth considering especially because the food that was fed was natures gift which is VERY high in fat...Gyps cant handle the amount of fat in it and either can mum and dads lab it makes them sick...... im happy the dog is healty again =)

    Sorry to hear your guy is so sick. You can't leave him in pain. It sounds more than just a change in food. He really must go to the vet. Could you explain to your local vet your circumstances and ask to pay off the consultation fee. You may have a local RSPCA who could help ?
