    Hi forum!

    I’ve been searching but haven’t really found many posts on this… my Chihuahua’s have been raw fed for as long as I’ve rescued them (about 2-3 yrs). They’ve done great within the past 7-8 months I’ve introduced RMB (chk feet, wings etc). They’ve suddenly showed signs of GERD/acid reflux. After eating they spit up yellow bile sometimes chunks of food…

    Any ideas to help?

    They get a homemade ground raw mix in the morning, with solid gold sea meal, calcium and fiber (dehydrated pumpkin and apple fiber).

    For dinner they get a RMB, liver, gizzard. They get raw quail eggs 1-3x a week as I read too many eggs can mess up the biotin in their system.

    I have a male and female chihuahua, male is 5lb and female is 8lb both could lose a lil weight.

    Any advice is appreciated!
    Thanks for your tome!

    Get them to a veterinarian, ASAP for diagnosis and treatment.

    I would stop all raw food immediately. The veterinarian will probably advise a bland diet after GI blockages are ruled out.

    The veterinarian will advise what to feed once they are stable, assuming they respond to treatment.
    Good luck.
