Food for sensitive stomach?
Baloo has been having diarrhea with blood in it for quite a while, months actually, on and off. The vet told me to feed him the blandest food possible with low fat in case it's a longterm intestinal problem, and handed me SCIENCE DIET SENSITIVE STOMACH dry food sample, and ID SCIENCE DIET presciption wet food. He told me if my cat liked the dry then to buy a bag of it & cans of the same brand wet food.
However, Science diet is a terrible food and the dry he gave me is full of grains, and meat is like not even on the ingredients list!!! I don't want to feed that to my cat. I had him on Merrick's BEFORE GRAIN SALMON recipe and WELLNESS pouches for wet. I'm guessing these foods aren't good for a very sensitive tummy? What can I substitute for the Science Diet my vet is forcing me to feed my cat?
We're also putting him on probiotics and some medicine to help with the diarrhea. If improvement isn't shown in a week we're doing another stool sample to check for giardia. Any suggestions you guys?? I'm going cat food shopping tm and don't know what to get!
