Erns is a bit off and had a couple of vomit sessions after being stable for ages. I opened a new bag of food 3 days ago and wondered if it could be this or who knows with him. Usually it feels quite greasy and this lot feels like it covered in crumbs if that makes sense.
He is eating, but doesn't seem to be enjoying it as usual. The last couple of days he hasn't demanded food which isn't like him.
Often the bag is sucked in as if the air has been taken out and this bag isn't so wonder if it could have had a small hole somewhere and air got to it.
I called into the vets who said it should be fine and more likely has eaten something he shouldn't. It is $195.00 a bag so don't want to throw it away unless I am sure.

Try Googleing the brand & batch # & see if it comes up with any problems with that batch. From my years in grocery, usually if a product should be vacuumed sealed & isn't (usually packets of meat etc), then there's a pretty good chance the product is "off" If Earns is still sick after another feeding of it, I'd be taking that bag back & ask for a replacement. Poor guy.
Did you call the company that makes the food?
The old adage applies to pet food as well as us. If in doubt, throw it out. I'd call the company first.
I didn't call Royal Canin.
Garth some bags aren't vacuum sealed and the expiry date is 10 months. I googled and nothing on it. I will feed him rice tomorrow and see if he settles. He could be sore with the cold weather, or he has eaten something that has upset his IBD. Since being off the Pred he isn't as stable as he was.
I finally found a page that says if it breaks up it is getting old. This doesn't break up or crumble.

I would take the whole bag in and have it replaced.
Does it smell the same? The smell of the food is usually a pretty clear indicator.
I would take the bag back and exchange it for a new one.
Start fresh again.
If the problem still persists with the new bag then at least you can eliminate the food as a possible culprit.
