I suspect Mabel has an allergy, and I'm thinking its from fish though I'm not sure. I know that she's fine with Chicken and Turkey (but hates beef in any form). I had been feeding her some wet stuff (non-premium) that had Whitefish and had noticed she always had lots of dander. I tried switching to premiums, which didn't help at all. I got a couple of cans of felidae and she broke out in scabby sores on her face. The vet said it looked like an allergic reaction to her. I did have her totally on dry food (that didn't have fish in it) for two weeks and her dander totally disappeared. I want to give her some wet food, but the only thing currently that I can find (premium) without fish is Science Diet Beef and Science Diet Turkey (both of which she doesn't like much at all). Anyone know any "fish-free" premiums out there? I checked the Nutro, Iams, Proplan etc at Petsmart and all seemed to have fish in some form.
