FELINE VETERINARY DIETS

 

Our serological food test results can be helpful both when selecting a suitable home-cooked diet or commercial pet food.  The veterinary diet selection tool below was compiled to provide guidance on the best feline commercial pet foods available, depending on your food test results.  Further information with regards to the interpretation of our food test results can be found here

This database was kindly sponsored by: Hill’s, Royal Canin, Virbac, Purina, James Wellbeloved and Fish4Cats.

If after inputting the food allergy test results all commercial diets are ruled out, this means based on the information supplied by the pet food manufacturers, all of the diets on our database contain either protein or carbohydrates this cat has shown either an IgE or IgG response to. You may wish to consider; a home cooked diet based on the cat’s dietary history and serological testing results, additional testing with Feli-Dial to try and identify a suitable diet or seeking advice on the suitability of an extensively hydrolysed prescription diet for this case from the manufacturers.

There is increasing evidence that many related foods contain similar proteins, which may be cross-reactive. Should reactivity be shown to one food, it is advisable that all other related foods also be avoided where possible. For example, if an IgE hypersensitivity response is seen to mammalian proteins beef, lamb and milk, it would be preferable to avoid other mammalian proteins such as pork, venison and rabbit. Using an avian or fish protein source for the exclusion diet would be a better choice if this is compatible with the animal’s dietary history.
