Have there been any changes to the diet? New food, including a change of flavors or protein source within the same brand? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment?

Could he have ingested something outside that tasted bad such as plants or animals (like lizards or frogs)?

Any vomiting?
