I'm hoping I can get some advice/food options for my kitty Lancelot who is showing signs of having at LEAST a chicken allergy, at MOST a chicken/turkey/beef allergy.
Backstory: Since I got him 5yrs ago, he's had episodes where every few months he'd throw up and couldn't stop. After various tests (including biopsies which turned up false for any issues), a vet recommended that he may have a food allergy. I haven't fed him chicken since June, and he hasn't had ONE flare-up since March!
He also seems to do better when he isn't being fed turkey or beef, but I don't know for sure if he'd be allergic to them or if he's just being a lazy bum.
I do plan on getting an allergy test done to determine his problem for sure, but until then I'm having a SUPER hard time finding any cat foods that don't have these 3 ingredients. Duck dinner! Has turkey liver. Lamb food! Has chicken.
I've found a dry kibble from Acana which he LOVES, but I'd rather feed him canned or raw. He grudgingly eats Primal Raw Pork in bits and pieces right now. I've been having the most luck with Duck and Lamb, I have yet to find a rabbit or venison he'll eat. Due to his pickiness I haven't been able to put him on a 100% 'novel protein' diet.
He'll eat any kind of fish food I give him, but from what I've read feeding a cat just fish all the time isn't a good idea?
**Note: I've seen a lot of raw dog foods that are a single protein (ex. Instinct Raw), much more than cat food. If I added a taurine supplement to these, could kitty eat them as long as they're basically meat/bone/organs? There's a local store which sells unispecies meat patties, and the only difference is that kitties need the taurine mixed in.
