Lily got extremely ill on December 16 with these symptoms: blood when she tried to go to the bathroom, throwing up, tired etc. I have never been so scared- she normally has such a happy disposition. We had gone to the local dog bakery and I purchased her some chewies (they sell Merrick) and a new food. Normally she is able to switch food easily and has never had a problem so I was really worried about her. The vet gave her some shots so she would stop vomiting and some antibiotics. He chalked it up to the food change although I had mixed in 3/4 of her old food with it. After being with her around the clock for 3 days it finally stopped. The only chewies I have been giving her are Merrick flossies from 3 months ago that she has never had an issue with. I really have to wonder if it was the chewies from the dog store. They were not the ones specified in the article, but were the same brand.
