Looking for a food that is good for a allergic cat instead of D/D

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Oreo is allergic to most cat foods and was put on Hill's D/D.
It is Duck and Green Pea flavored.
I would like to find a cheaper food for her.
It is very expensive for one small bag.
What do you suggest I get for her?

What have you tried? Wet or dry?

Natural Balance also makes an allergry formula, only one that comes to mind right now.

Royal canin also makes RX food for cats with limited ingredients. I think the price is the safe or more than SD D/D though. I'm afraid you are going to find that allergen free food is more expensive 'cause often the stuff that they are allergic to is cheaper than the stuff they can eat, like duck is more expensive than chicken which is more than corn filler, etc... for example.

Have you tried Natural Balance Green Pea and Duck Limited Ingredients? It is made specifically for allergic kittens, and since she was already used to this flavor...

http://www.petco.com/product/104221/...-Cat-Food.aspx

They have both wet and dry... It might work for her. It is sold at Petco - if she doesn't like, you can take it back to them.

The vet said she is allergic to beef and fish.
She is on Hill's D/D Duck and Green Pea right now.
She was on Blue Spa when her fur fell out.
Then we tried Avo Derm and it was worse.

I have natural balance duck and green pea canned for Luna (I prefer wet food for her because it helps her stay a bit trimmer), but like the poster said they also make dry. The stores here don't normally carry it, but the small pet store by my job will special order it for Luna. Maybe one of the small pet stores near you may special order it if you ask them. It is about half the price of the Royal Canin prescription food. Hill's version (at least the can is every more expensive).

My costs:

Natural Balance
$1.00 can (with case discount)

Royal Canin
$1.96 per can

Hills (z/d)
$2.29 per can

I would second the Natural Balance Duck & Green Pea formula... and SuperPetz usually carries it, as well as Petco. Good luck!
