Confused about grain free cat food

After talking with the vet, we are keeping him on the prescription royal Canin diabetic food. I took him to the vet tonight to get a depo shot because his skin allergy is bad. The vet wanted to do blood work to see what he is allergic to. I told him at this point my husband and I just want him to be comfortable. We are tired of having him poked and prodded. They weighed him and he has lost a pound within two weeks.

He's our baby. We hate seeing him scratching his neck raw. My cat didn't want me touching him. He cried out when I picked him up. He should start feeling better in a few days.

On your own, you can look into common cat allergies, and then look at the ingredients in his food and see if there are any red flags.

I'm sorry to hear that he's feeling poorly.

Thank you.

On another note, I went to the pet store to buy EVO for my 10 month old cat & I wound up buying Taste of the Wild Rocky Mountain Feline Formula. I was concerned about EVO after reading about it being made by P&G. Maybe I'm paranoid about that but the pet store employee recommended Taste of the Wild & I saw that some of you use that too. I also bought a ball chasing toy too

Ironic...P&G hasn't made any changes to the EVO product at all since the buy out nearly 3 years ago, they also haven't had any recalls. Taste of the Wild (and a variety of other products made by Diamond) was recalled less than a year ago for possible salmonella contamination.

Oh goodness. I just realized my Doug's Chicken Soup food is made by Diamond. I hope her's wasn't recalled because she has been eating that for 4 years now. Ugh!

I will just keep my eye out for any recalls and check the FDA website out.

I know a lot of people who will not feed TOTW dog food because of the recalls- that said, I transitioned my cat to TOTW from Iams because it was the ONLY food he would eat. Now I have transititoned him to Weruva (Paw Lickin Chicken because all the others seem very high carb) and Tiki Cat (which sadly only has 2 all chicken flavors). Due to the expense and because I want to get my kittens eating wet food too I am going to mix in some less costly varieties that are not necessarily grain free (but at least low grain and low carb).

For a serious health situation I would always listen to my vet though AND if I didn't trust my vet I would find a new one.

Hmm, I will have to check out Weruva. There are just so many different brands out there.
