What cat food is best for sensitive stomachs?

Happy tummies all round

Unless you’re lucky enough to be one of these people with a stomach of iron, you’ve probably had a bad reaction to one food or another. Something super spicy that didn’t sit right, or a meal that left you feeling like you were smuggling a balloon in your belly. Well, there are a few things that can cause your feline friend plenty of discomfort too. Chief amongst them, is the ingredients in their food.    

There are usually a few telltale signs if your cat has a food allergy. Among them, are itchiness, bald patches and inflamed skin. But if you suspect your pet has a dietary issue, you certainly shouldn’t try and diagnose them yourself. Pop in to see your local vet.

If you’re just looking to give your pet the best chance of staying as happy and healthy as they are right now, there are a few good-to-knows. Some foods you probably think of as staples for cats, don’t sit that well with them at all. In fact, allergies to beef account for a large number feline stomach issues. And, here’s the kicker, no adult cat should be anywhere near a saucer of milk – kittens should only drink their mother’s milk, or a special formula.

If your cat’s not suffering any particular side-effects of his or her diet, but you just want them to be as fit as felinely possible, you could try a simple elimination diet plan. Try a food without a specific ingredient and see if they seem happier. That’s one of the great things about Applaws foods.
