Lamb and Rice
by: Viv

I have a one year old mini aussie and he has eaten science diet lamb and rice and was perfectly fine. I asked my vet before I fed him that and she told me I could feed him any "flavor". I have not ever heard of the lamb and rice being a problem. Good luck!

I'm not sure if this is the case however, I can tell you from personal experience, that when my male aussie,who is now passed (from old age)experienced constant vomiting on lamb and rice(not immediatly however. I had taken him to see the vet on many occasions,and they couldn't find the cause. They recommended to put him on Pepcid which did help with vomiting. They said sometimes as they age,this can happen. It did work,however, I knew there had to be a cause. After changing his food back to chicken and rice, I had no further problems. So, this may or may not be true but I wouldn't take the chance if I were you. It's not worth it. There are many other options out there today. Hope this helps.

My Aussie has been happy and healthy on California Natural lamb and rice for over a year now.

I'd have your Aussie checked for epilepsy. My first Aussie was diagnosed with epilepsy at a year and a half. It was incredibly hard, because his seizures were so severe. I was convinced that chicken caused them, so I never fed him chicken. But, honestly it has nothing to do with food. My Dakota passed away just before he turned 8. He was a very special boy, and I miss to this day.
