If you suspect that your cat suffers from food allergies or intolerances, a single-protein, limited-ingredient diet may be in order. This ultra-simple recipe from Hound & Gatos could be a good choice. It gives your cat a break from potential irritants and could be a good option for an elimination diet.
The food is primarily made from lamb muscle meat and liver. Lamb protein offers a diversion from the chicken, beef, and fish commonly found in cat food, making it a promising choice for cats with known or suspected food intolerances.
As a 98% meat food, the product doesn’t have a lot of room for preservatives, starches, and other potentially-irritating additives. The food contains agar-agar as a thickener and salmon oil as a source of fat. As a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, salmon oil may help to alleviate inflammation associated with diarrhea and other digestive issues.
As one of the simplest foods on the market, Hound & Gatos is popular with cats with IBD and digestive problems.
One reviewer on Chewy says that “I have been pulling my hair out dealing with a food allergy / IBD for 6 months now, ever since I adopted one of my kittens. After multiple vet visits, countless medications, and poopy paw prints all around the house, I am SO happy to say this food (Hound & Gatos Lamb & Lamb Liver Formula) has cured his diarrhea within days of switching to this food.”
