|My vet has tested Munches thyroid (several times over the past year, btw), which was always normal. I don't know much about IBS in cats, so I'll have to look that up.
My worry is that I have spent so much money on switching him to different kinds of cat foods, and he doesn't like any of them (except that horrible Friskies!) I can't afford to keep buying these expensive brands, and hoping he'll like them (when most of the time he doesn't).
I was hoping someone knew of a healthy dry food that is not too outrageous in price. Or are there semi-dry/wet cat foods out there??? Something softer so it would be easier to chew for him? Like I said, he refuses to eat canned wet food to my dismay!
My vet really is a good vet. I've been going to him for over a decade and he has saved the lives of many of my rescues and given me discount after discount because I rescue and he knows I'm poor. I can't really afford to find another vet (nor do I want to). I have taken Munch in so many times over the past 2 yrs to find out why he has diarrhea and vomiting, and all of the tests show nothing. My vet thinks Munch may have issues because he has herpes (all of my cats have the herpes virus).
I will try him on a new food to see if I can find one that agrees with him...but I was hoping I could get it narrowed down to the best dry food for a cat his age and in his condition so I don't go out and buy a ton of different brands that he won't eat.
Has anyone else had issues with Taste of the Wild? My other cats seem to like it, but for some reason Munch does not. I thought it would be a good food cuz it's grain-free. I really liked feeding them the Blue Buffalo, but there are so many strange ingredients (all the berries, etc) and I think it was too hard on Munches stomach (and some of my other cats as well). I need to find a cat food that is similar in price to TOTW & Blue Buffalo, b/c I am feeding 8 so it can get VERY expensive (and I'm pretty poor!) Most people in my financial situation give their cats the cheapest food they can buy, but I sacrifice to feed my cats decent food. But it's hard. I know some of the food a couple of you mentioned are out of my price range.
Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
