Proper way for food trial

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
A little history:

Hello, I am back with Mikey. Yes, he's still having issues. But things have taken a turn for positive. After finding out he had a lot of bacteria in his stomach we gave him antibiotic and he was on i/d soft food for 1 whole week and nothing else. Aftar that, we went back to Freekies Seafood Sensation (what we've been feeding Samantha for a year now) and his stool became soft again. Went back out to Petsmart and bought Proplan "Salmon & rice" flavor. His poop is ok. No diarrhea. But he begs for soft food. So we gave him soft food, "salmon & rice" by Proplan in a can. Day after, diarrhea again! So we thought he's allergic to wheat but doesn't seem like it at all.

So now we're on a hunt for soft food for him. But the problem is, everytime we give him soft food, he poops soft stool and wattery stool. He's still not 1 so maybe he can't tolerate the food yet. What should I do? How long do I keep him on 1 food for until I see result? So far, I've been changing it every 2 days but maybe I should do a week's trial to see if his poop becomes normal?

So far I have tried: Blue brand with Salmon flavor, no luck, I tried Avoderm with tuna flavor last night, no luck. I have a bigger can of Organic food but I havne't opened it yet. Not sure if I should continue with Avoderm for a few days to see if things change?

P.S. I also asked the vet, and he said I can always put him back on i/d (soft food) if he can tolerate that for a little longer.

try one of the no grain pate style... all gravys have a starch ( wheat , rice, potato and oat are common)

I c. So starch is something to watch out for? I think he can't tolerate certain things since he's still a baby.

MOST cats do well with no to little grain s ... Unfortunatly many companies make grain free loaded with another starch ie potato or peas ... Both of these are showing up as allergens ... I said most there are a few that need grain

My baby loves this too. I've used both the regular and organic brands and she loves them all. By the way, is there a reason you are looking for primarily fish flavors? Fish is the last thing I would feed a cat with potential allergy problems.
