No Hypoallergenic Diet Controls Weight. Add Fiber

Question:

My cat Annabelle was 16.5# of love, but with Science Diet r/d she is now down to 15#. Unfortunately she is showing signs of food allergy (according to a cat dermatologist), and I’m having trouble finding alternatives that are high fiber and low fat.

 

Dr. Nichol:

Both of Annabelle’s problems, her weight and allergy, are important. There is no combo diet. Use Hill’s hypoallergenic diet z/d. Feed ¼ cup morning and night. Offer raw carrots the rest of the time. Don’t let her take up smoking; singing or meditation are much healthier.
