Can you clarify further what "is acting not his self" implies, please? Both the inorganic and organic fertilizers can cause gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea but the organic ones such as the Jobe can also cause iron toxicity and predispose to pancreatitis.
