Default Uh-oh, the Primal is running out!

Ahhhhh! I had a big bag of the Primal duck for Odie when we started feeding it exclusively and I underestimated how much of it she would eat. We are going to run out of it faster than I thought. I already sent the other bags back to the store I purchased from (exchanging for duck) but it's on the other side of the country and will take awhile to get here. Now I'm not sure what to do. It's not sold anywhere near where I live, only on the coast which is a 4 hour drive away. I've started emailing stores down there to see if any would be willing to let me purchase over the phone and ship it to me, so we'll see what happens with that.

If they aren't willing to ship to me, I'm not sure what to do. I know that it's too early to add another protein. I was very excited to see that a local store started carrying the dehydrated Stella & Chewy food, but the duck also has goose in it. Anyway, keep your fingers crossed for me please! I really don't want to make the 8 hour round trip drive down to Vancouver for a bag of food.

oh nooo Krystal. sorry to hear that your running out of Primal Duck. did you find out if they shipped it yet ? do they give you a tracking number and an estimated ship date...

hmm. I think before I took the 8 hour trip.. if it were me, I would buy or borrow another food as soon as possible and alternate between the primal duck that you are feeding and the other food that you choose , just to stretch out the primal duck that you already have. Maybe if that local pet shop that sells the stella and chewys has the rabbit version, you could try that ?
( I know you didnt want to add another protein yet, but in this case ... if it were me, I would give it a try to see how Odie reacts .... , maybe you will end up picking a 2nd food that will agree with Odie )

just a suggestion though...

or... if they don't have the Rabbit, you could buy one of the other foods that you were previously feeding Odie. or does your friend that you gave all the open bags to still have any of the open bags left that you could have back. just for temporary until you receive the Primal duck.

hmm. I wouldn't make an 8 hour trip . that's too far. That local store.... do they carry the Stella and Chewys Rabbit ? I know you don't want to add another protein yet, but maybe in this case.... you could just give it a try . if they have the Rabbit, and if it were me , I'd pick up a bag as soon as possible and then, just give her the Rabbit every other day to stretch out the duck ....

Unfortunately the bags I sent back haven't even reached Ontario yet.
But the good news is that I think I found a place that will do it! I found one earlier that will do it if I order $100 but this place that just emailed me might be able to ship me just a bag or two. They asked me to call tomorrow so we'll see. I'm fine doing the $100 worth of it, it's just that I'm guessing the shipping will be a lot more and I'm going down there next month anyway.

Going to make sure I get them shipped tomorrow and we might make it! I would think it would only take a few days to get here. I think i'll go check out the pet store tomorrow and see if they carry rabbit. Maybe they have a smaller bag I could buy just in case. Thanks Elaine! That's a good suggestion. Hopefully it won't come to that. She had a couple of episodes of the leg stretching thing this morning which worries me, but maybe things just haven't settled down yet. She's also still on antibiotics for a couple more days.

oh, good. I hope that works out for you with the place that will ship it out tomorrow.
sorry to hear about the leg stretching . Do you have anymore recheck appointments set up with the Veteranarian ?
How does Odie seem other than the leg stretching ? is she happy most of the time ?

I hope you can figure this out soon for Odie. give her a hug from me.

Oh no!!! I hope u find someone who can ship it to you locally (4 hr away as opposed to across the country). At least now you know how much she's going to eat so u can plan in advance. Let me know if I can buy some and ship it to u if that would help in any way. Hugs!

Will do! I'm just going ahead with ordering $100 from the first place. They were closed yesterday and there's no post on the weekends anyway so I just emailed her asking her to give me a call and confirm it will be shipped today. I have enough for two days now and let her know that and it's Canada day tomorrow so it's a holiday and no mail then either. Yikes! It should get here quickly though if she sends it rushed but I think I might have to go pick up some rabbit if they have it. If it comes down to it, I still have her Acana kibble that doesn't have beef if it so I can do that.

Odie doesn't have any appointments scheduled, but she still has a few more days of antibiotics left so I'd like to see how she does off of them before I take her in. I know that they could possibly be upsetting her stomach too so we'll see. She's a very happy girl other than the leg stretching and occasional acid reflux type behaviour. The acid reflux thing happens more often than the leg stretching. I actually just came off of a PPI prescription myself and I know that most acid reflux is caused by not enough stomach acid so I'm going to try apple cider vinegar to see if it helps and I might look into doing it with Odie just for a limited time.

Aw thanks girls! The problem is that it wouldn't get here in time from the states, but I really appreciate you offering! So sweet of you. Now that I know how much she eats in a day, I will make sure I have enough ordered from now on!
