Hi, can I have a recommendation for hypoallergenic cat food and where do I buy it?

One of my cats seems to be having a food allergy, she's been licking her abdomen and some parts of her limbs bare the past few months. Aside from the bald patches and vomiting of the fur (the size of an index finger my god) once, there's no other sign. I've shaved her coat.

For the first 4.5 years of her life I've fed her dry Royal Canin Indoor, then ever since bringing her back from overseas in Nov 2016 she's mainly been on a combination of dry Petcurean Go Trim+Fit, dry Orijen Cat & Kitten, dry Orijen 6 Fish, canned Kit Cat Chicken Classic, Chicken & Lamb, Chicken & Beef, Chicken & Prawn, along with occasional Orijen duck and wild boar treats.

I've already removed Orijen 6 fish from her diet for a month, she's still gobbling the rest happily yet still licking herself quite a bit. As such I'd like to put her on a hypoallergenic trial. Any suggestions?

Anyone tried Natural Core? http://www.naturalcore.sg

Seems like it's organic. I am currently doing meowing heads for dry and Aixia for wet food. Just wondering if this organic is better.

I've been giving my cat Solid Gold (dry) and Fussie Cat Premium/Wellness Gold (wet). She had 2 kittens and they'll be able to start eating soon. I wanna prevent any dehydration problems by going wet-cat-food heavy proportion-wise, but are there good wet food brands with kitten-focused food being sold here?

One of my kitten had Schesir as her wet food. They carry tuna / chicken flavor only for Kittens

I just bought the 40lb chicken one for my cats. All of them eat it normally and no rejection.
It's a decent brand except not grain free. This Salmon formula should be ok for all cats.

Alaskan Salmon Formula For Indoor Kitten & Adult Cat
Indoor cats can be less active when compared to those who are outdoor, so we have specifically created a formula to give them complete nutrition while helping them to manage a healthy weight. With Coconut Oil, our formula can help control hairball problems as a result of increase in indoor grooming.

Alaskan Salmon as 1st ingredient - Rich in Vitamin B6 and B12
Double berry blend Cranberries and Blueberries that provide phytonutrients while supporting urinary tract health
Low levels of Ash and Magnesium that prevents feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD)

If only one cat and doesn't mind the cost of any food, sure can try but not sure if everyone organic is necessarily since its not grain free as it has brown rice and doesn't need the soyabean either.

No.

Boiled chicken is a wonderful and healthy treat to give cats.

BUT Cats require essential vitamins and taurine which is an essential amino acid that are in cat foods which the chicken only diet will lack so it must be a supplemental treat rather than the main staple.

I mix canned cat food (tuna) with home cooked steam chicken. I mix them. My cat picked out the chicken to eat. Leave the canned tuna alone. 😓

Hi all paws parents!

I see a lot of Japanese and Korean brands of wet food in the stores these days.
Any comments? Any known health issues for kitties?

Thought i'll share a recent petshop that i bumped into while browsing through carousell.

Shop Name: Pet Inc (It also grooms dogs btw)
Address: Lor 4 Toa Payoh, Block 85C

Bought cat food both wet and dry and some other grooming and treats as well, owner is a very nice guy. Most are relatively cheaper than online petshop or petshop itself. They also do delivery if you hit their minimum spend of $100. They are having sales end of year sales now, not sure till when. Can see their listing in carousell under their username: petinc

I also purchased from Pet Inc. So far so good, at least it's near my house. The price is slightly cheaper than the popular chain outlets. They provide free delivery even for promotional items as long as u reach min $100.
