Ok so my cat Monte is now 2 years old and he has had ear problems since we got him. He came to us with really bad ear mites and after we got that taken care of he was always getting ear infections and I had to clean his ears twice a week. Finally my vet suggested a dermatolagist to find out why he ears keep producing so much waxy build up. When we first visited the derm. they did a very deep cleaning of his ears and put him on a speacial diet of rabbit and green pea formula food. At first he didn't like the dry food so I got the wet food and he loved it. 6 weeks later they look at his ears and say try him back on his orginial food to see his ears get back again, suggesting a food allergy but when I switched him back to the wet food that he was eating, he sniffed it and walked away, so we tried a different brand, different flavor. After about six different cans, I said this is crazy, lets just keep him on the rabbit and green pea, it's expensive but he loves it. He has started eating the dry rabbit and pea formula throughout this whole process. So I got him more of the rabbit and pea food and they tell me to try this other brand that has a rabbit formula and it's a little cheaper. The pet store had to order a case of it and so they suggested that I try the venison and green pea. I did, Monte wasn't interested in it. So, I just opened up the rabbit wet food and he wasn't interested in that either. So now he is no longer interested in the canned food, he has just been eating the dry. Any suggestions or reasons why you think this is happening, or suggestions on what I should try next. thanks, sorry it's so long. Thanks for the suggestions.
