    hi everyone:
    I wanted to get some feedback because everytime I feed my cat he vigorously scratches by his ear and grooms himself. I have a feeling he is reacting to his food going from gyco balance timfancy feast. He was also doing this on the gyco balance.

    Has anyone experienced this?

    I have my suspicions that Mia was having some reactions to Fancy Feast. She seemed to be scratching her chin a lot, to the point that she had a little scab. The hair seemed thinned out a bit on her chin and just above her eyes. She also started to have some poop issues. I ended up changing to Weruva Chicken Frick A' Zee, and I am not seeing the issues anymore. Both of my girls are doing great on it - I hope it keeps up! I have FF still on hand and would use it if I had to if they were being finicky at some point and would not eat the other options I have, but I would not use it again as a regular food for my girls. It works for so many cats, but it does have some 'garbage' ingredients in it like 'artificial flavors' and 'meat by products', and I think they put fish in every one of the things; I used Classic Chicken Feast, and it had fish.

    Thanks for the info, I tried friskies Pate tonight to see if it makes a difference. Maybe I will get a can or two of the stuff you r using to see if the friskies shows the same reaction to him

    This website allows you to order single pet food cans, whereas most online retailers require you to buy a case.
    I Ordered a variety of foods for Monster from go healthy pet. Their customer service is great.
    The stores around me don’t carry a good selection of the premium pet foods.

    I switched to Canidae Pure duck pate for my Leo. He can't eat chicken, beef, turkey, or pork. It's a limited ingredient food with no carageenen etc. He does pretty good on it with his IBD and food sensitivities. The main draw back though is that it is very very expensive. Petco carries it in single cans but they run out quickly as I think it is pretty popular.

    If it's hard to find, try ordering online at Chewy.com. Free shipping if the order is over $49. They are reliable and helpful.

    I do order from Chewy but sometimes I forget to order in time so I have to run to Petco. There are only 18 cans in a case and since they're only 3 oz cans they go fast. I need to order several cases at a time now. I can't believe how much my cat costs me in cat food. Wouldn't you know that the only foods he can tolerate are the most expensive ones! He's a high maintenance boy.
