My cat has an allergy causing her to excessively scratch, bite & lick to the point of licking all fur off. Gluten free diet made her sick?
It is obviously very uncomfortable for her since she has licked away all the fur that she can reach. The vet put her on a hypoallergenic hard food. A friend had a cat who had the same problem, they tried putting the cat on a gluten free diet & were successful at subsiding the allergen. So I took my kitty off her regular food & started feeding her sliced turkey, ham & roast beef. She loved it but it didn't fill her up like her grainy hard food did. Anyways, I have been feeding her gluten free for almost a week now & today she started throwing up both meals she had (morning & afternoon). I'm worried if it is the preservatives in the meats causing her to get sick or maybe she is just not used to the meats. I think it makes sense to feed her gluten free diet because cats in the wild do not eat grains. Any one have any advice onto either what her allergy could be or if it is bad to feed her the meats that I have been for the last week.
