Just wondering if there is something wrong with my Nutrical, haha. Yoshi didn't eat as much today as usual so I wanted to give her some to make sure she was good ... so I gave her a tiny bit, but then all this oil just starting pouring out of the tube :p It was really quite gross. Like, I'm talking a LOT of oil. Well I got rid of all the oil and got to more of the actual nutrical, haha. I'm wondering though if this is bad to give Yoshi? It hasn't expired, it's just like it separated or something. I tried to smush it around to mix it up again, but oil just keeps coming out. It's really weird o_O The actual nutrical part looks normal and stuff, I'm just wondering what's up with all this extra oil.

When I let it sit for a minute and open it again, more oil pours out. It still doesn't expire though for over a year, but now I'm worried I shouldn't have given it to Yoshi.

The oil is just seperating from the rest of the ingredients in the Nutracal. I've had it happen to me several times.
Try squeezing (kneeding) the tube with the lid ON several times to get it to mix back together.

Yeah I did try that but it doesn't seem to work. At least it's not gone bad or something, which I was worried about ^_^

It just worried me feeding it to Yoshi because it smells like my oil paints ... and I was thinking that can't be good, haha.

Well I think if it smells weird, I'd toss it. Just like my own food. If something smells a little off, I pitch it. I'm not taking any chances, regardless of the exp. date.

Yeah it was just the oil that smelled weird, because I think it's the same oil they use in my paint. I just found it really odd to smell it in something dogs eat o_O

This has happened to me too. If you have room in the tube, just close it and try to mush it around. I think the ingredients just separate when left untouched. I hope Yoshi's eating and well soon!
