Cat with severe food allergies AND crystals
My 2 year old Bengal cat has severe food allergies. I've tried just about every food on the market and finally found one that relieved her excessive diarrhea. (It's Prairie Lamb and Oatmeal). She has trouble with almost every meat/fish/foul or a combination of them and the additives that get added. I never was able to completely pinpoint it.
We've just come from the vets because she developed crystals and had a high PH. I don't know what all the lab results mean yet but this is what came up if its any help:
Specific Gravity 1.067
Triple Phospate Crystals 11-20
Ca Oxalate Dihdrate Crystal 11-20
I discussed in detail the cats food problems but the vet wanted me to give the Hills C/D bladder health food a try. I'm expecting to have issues with the food but I'm going to give it a chance. He said he had a couple of others we could experiment with but the ingredients didn't look any better than the Hills C/D. Everything looked to have a high chicken base and she can't even tolerate chicken table scraps. He said he had a W/D we could try which is for sensitive cats but it didn't look like it addressed urinary health (just food sensitivities).
Does anyone have a similar problem as my cat? Are there any other ways I can control her symptoms other than changing her diet? The vet said he had a tube of stuff for acid control but didn't feel it was as reliable as the food.
