    DefaultKong Failure, Dog is Sick

    Ok where did I go wrong? I made Pitch his Frozen Kong tonight. I moved up to the larger Kong. I made a mixture of Plain Yogurt, Frozen Green Beans and Frozen Peas. Closed the ends with Peanutbutter and Froze it. Well he must of played with it for maybe an hour and a half and he lost his cookies all over his bed. Any ideas what I might of done wrong? Is it possible the mixture wasn't good?, Or Maybe too much of a good thing? Anyone ever have this happen, I feel so bad for him. It definitely is from the kong, been fine all day.

    My boy Gryph usually tosses his cookies if he eats to many green veggies in one sitting. It may have been just a little to much on his tummy. I use a mixture of baby food and kibble when I make them. I block the little hole with kibble then put a mix of kibble and baby food in the kong. Stand it little side up on the freezer. I usually put it in a baggy in case there are any leaks.

    Think about it...how would you feel if you just ate yohurt, peas (ICK- LOL), grean beans and peanut butter in one sitting. :P

    I'd just try a couple of ingredients. Plug the end with peanut butter, fill with frozen green beans and seal the top with a dab of yogurt. See how that works.

    Maybe it was the yogurt. Sometimes some dogs have trouble with dairy...

    The last couple of Kongs I made Angus had cottage cheese. I was looking to do something different, cottage cheese is a great source of protein, why not?

    He tossed his cookies later in the evening on both occasions. It wasn't until after the second time that I made the link to the cottage cheese. :-\

    I'll throw two cents in. You switched to a large Kong. Has he had all these ingredients in any form before?

    Since you switched to a larger Kong, find the smaller one and only use two ingredients, a filler and something else. Hopefully a filler that he has had before without issues. I wouldn't use PB as a filler, just too much PB. I use HKs Kibble and a little PB in the bottom, middle, and top. Total PB is probably a tablespoon and a half.

    When she gets a frozen yogurt concoction, (Yogurt, PB, Banana, kibble) the total portion is 2 ounces.

    He probably just had too much of a good thing. Lots of rich treats all at once.

    The smaller kong works really well for Marlan. If I am picturing right, the bigger kong is really big. That's the reason I haven't upgraded yet.

    Poor Pitch. But, I bet he'll be beggin for his kong again tomorrow (heheh ;D)!

    Husband just made a good point...I told him I moved up to the larger kong, cause he finished up his other one so quickly yesterday, he said it's a snack not a meal. Why does he always have to be right.... :-\
