puberty/food transition

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
my five month old maine coon Cupido has I think
entered puberty
He had a g/i problem vomiting and diarrhea for a day
and five days of flagyl and pepcid when he was 3 1/2 months
since then hes been on hills i/d
I tried to transition him once to solid gold wet and dry
and he got diarrhea so that was discontinued
Now hes doing great on natural balance duck and pea in combo with the hills
Im afraid hes gotten a little tubby
My next change is going to be his dryfood
Im trying before grain chicken
Anyone use this product Id love to hear about it

Before Grain is Merrick s grain free ... it is fine not IMHO a good version of a grain free ... the wet is good but is supplemental food ( ie you cannot just feed that )...

since last night hes tolerated 4 kibbles
twice of before grain
I have found it hard to get a good dry food that didnt have multi meat or fish
we have tried solid gold katz n flacken[ lamb]and evo and california natural venison and sweet potato
the solid gold second try [after he had vomiting and diarrhea]
