When Drs. Foster and Smith had Hodari's brand of pellets on sale recently I ordered two bags. Yesterday she finished the bag she'd been on when I ordered from F and S, so tonight I opened a new one, and was struck immediately by a bad, sour smell. I opened the second bag and it, too, smelled very sour. Hodari wanted nothing to do with them; I let her sniff them, just to see what she thought. She kept expecting me to give her her usual yummy pellets and all I had was stinky ones. So, my question is, Should I go out tomorrow and buy another bag of her brand of pellets, or would it be okay to get her some different ones? Hodari generally does not have problems with food at all; she seems to tolerate everything very well. Would it be okay to just switch brands on her suddenly? What are your thoughts? I'm just really leery of her usual brand now...
Okay, guys. Thanks. I will contact Drs Fand S today. I think the pellets must have gotten wet when they were still at the manufacturer. After I opened them they seemed like they were over full, and the bags wouldn't close. They must have been exposed to moisture at some point and then they expanded. I'll go ahead and buy her usual pellets again. I was hoping not to have to.
