Hey Grey Wolf,

Thanks for the comment to my blog about Zuni. I'm not able to find Diamond Pet Foods here. Zuni is doing better right now, though. We feed her Iams Lamb and Rice with some vegetable oil mixed in. She's keeping that down and eager to eat.

She really loves shredded chicken, too.

Thanks again.
