HELP ME!!!!!

My 2 year old male is shedding alot. I change their food, every so often. Seems like when I change their food and it does not matter to what It kicks into high gear. Does anyone know of an affordable food that I can feed him to help control the shedding factor.

Out of curiosity, why are you changing his food so often?
Have you tried brushing or combing him regularly? If he is short haired, once a week is good enough.
Remember that cat's hair grows seasonally not continuously which is why they shed more during spring and less in autumn or like in my case since I leave in Asia, less shedding during the cooler months and a lot during the hot season.

I don't think the food will affect the shedding much. Some cats just shed more than others, and you have to deal with it.

It's important to get a good brush to comb your kitty on a regular basis especially if they are med/long haired. I would avoid changing their food too much it can make them more picky and can cause health issues.

Shedding is just the loss of dead hair and as some of the others have said, brushing and combing help to cut down on shedding. I bathe my persians too, which really minimizes the shedding but not everyone wants to bathe their cats. Others take them to a groomer twice a year or so, to be bathed and groomed. That helps a lot too. Other then that... shedding is just part of the package!
