    Also, since you're going to do bland anyway, maybe slowly switch back to a good kibble or go with a different raw for now. Get rid of that bag.

    I was just on Novartis' site reading about Adequan and it does list vomiting as a possible side effect;
    "Possible side effects (pain at injection site, vomiting, diarrhea, depression and abnormal bleeding) were mild, transient and self-limiting." Hopefully that's all it is.

    But you can always call Novartis (I used to work with them and they have very good reps.) and they can give you more info. on the side effects.
    Directly off their site, to report suspected adverse effects, contact Novartis Animal health at : 800-637-0281. I would call them.
    What do I tell/ask them? What are you gonna do with your boys & the S&C? I wanted to call them too...?
    Gosh I'm so torn on what to do with the injections & food. Ugh

    Thank you for replying. Hang in there both of you.
    Thanks Phil, I'm trying. Just frustrated & confused.

    They're on kibble right now (Canidae Grain Free Pure Sea). I needed to get something decent locally (well upstate) and I like Canidae. The timing couldn't have been worse for us considering we had to leave a few hours after I found out.
    I'm gonna wait for a little while with S&C and then decide. It's their first ever recall but still upsetting.

    I would call Novartis and tell them exactly what's going on, what your vet said, and get their opinion on whether or not it's a possible side effect. The timing just screams that it's the Adequan.

    But between the Cerenia shot and the Metronidazole he should be feeling much better. The metronidazole works very fast.

    Oh Jessica, I'm just now reading this…

    I'm so sorry honey, poor baby boy… I heard about the recall when I was on vacation. Roxie NEVER threw up because of the Adequan injections, but I know that you said it was listed as a side effect. Did they say what to do if it was the food?!! Gosh what horrible timing for you. I'm sending you lots of prayers, please keep us posted. Hopefully he will start feeling better soon!!!

    I haven't been online in a while and just saw this about TyTy!

    We are praying for your little boy! Hope he starts feeling better and you can find out what is causing the vomiting.

    Well, they are totally against raw and for this exact reason (listeria, bacteria, etc) she wants him back on kibble. I don't know what we're gonna do. He did so well on the raw, but now this & the fact that I can't pinpoint the exact culprit freakin sucks!

    I'm torn. Tomorrow I will be calling Novaris (Adequan makers) and Stella & Chewys. Danny thinks we should transition him back to kibble & continue the Adequan.

    I'm just a mess. Lol I can't make a decision. I'm terrified it will happen again on next injection but then again what if it was the food!? Ughhh. The whole reason we decided to do the Adequan was Bc of minimal side effects! Look at me now! I have to laugh.

    Thanks so Much. He ate his boiled chicken & rice like a champ, and we gave him his antibiotic. He was hungry!!! And he's been drinking a good amount of water. I know he had to have been dehydrated from vomiting all day

    Prayers that he keeps it down; and feels better tomorrow. I know when I had food poisoning I could have sworn I was dying inside. It's the most horrible feeling & painful - cramps, nausea, vomit, diarrhea, dizziness, chills. My poor guy :/

    Side note: since we were walk in, and our usual vet had left we saw a new one - she's new to Brittmore. She was very thorough & I was pretty pleased with her. We've seen pretty much most their staff! But Dr. Chellappan is our reg.

    IMO I would treat this as the food… you mentioned that his stomach seemed unsettled the night before. I think you should give the Adequan another try and see what happens…
