Chester was doing fine with Canine Caviar since May this year however the latest two bags of the 27lbs Canine Caviar kibbles from them smell funny when I unsealed the bag at home. The smell got worst as the days goes by. I threw the first bag when there’s 1/4 left. For the second bag, I discovered bugs in the bags when there’s 1/4 left. You know those bugs (called grain beetle or weevils) that infested your spices and rice? Ya that kind.
The bugs discovery was made when I placed the bag upside down. I was just changing the direction of the bag. Who knows I would make such finding. Horror! This means Chester’s been eating bug infested kibbles. Argggh!!! The distributor agreed and have already given me replacement. This happened a week ago.

Right: Chester’s new dog food which has higher protein %
While waiting for the replacement, I start feeding him Fish4Dogs which cost RM330 at 12kg (pokai). It was said to be far more superior than Canine Caviar. Well, I don’t think so. Chester’s stools got larger and a bit smellier. And I can see that he’s less active now.
Now problem start to arise on the 3rd day I fed Chester Fish4Dogs. Chester vomited 11 hours after his breakfast (right before dinner time). Then all’s good until 5 days later which he vomited again. Then 3 days later again another vomit. Because he seems fine to me, I didn’t bring him to clinic.
Update: A week past, no vomit. Yay!
I’m speculating his vomit is due to either one of the 3 reasons below:
1. Infection from the bug-infested kibbles.
2. Allergy to ingredient in new food.
3. Hungry because his vomit is yellow (means vomit on empty stomach if what I read is correct) and he’s always hungry. Haha
So now I’m just observing him, I’ll bring him to the doc straight away if he vomits again or become ill. I don’t know whether to continue feeding him the new dog food or feed him the replaced Canine Caviar. Dilemma…
Chester, how now brown cow? Feed you which one leh?
