Extreme Experiment

Another update on Chang Chang and his itchy skin.

We put him on 50% NB and 50% SD last week after it was confirmed that RC did not work for him. It was no good either. He was still itchy and tore off some fur on his back. So SD is out too and he was back on 100% NB, which he will not willingly eat unless he is really hungry. Actually none of them likes NB at all and is the last resort when they are really famished. Can you imagine it? They rejected the most expensive food. Is it really so yucky to eat?

As the main ingredient for both RC and SD is chicken, we did an extreme experiment on him last night. WE FED HIM 100% BOILED CHICKEN BREAST MEAT!!! He gobbled everything up and licked his mouth. Now we will monitor him for the next few days to see if he will lick excessively again.

The good news is that there was no clumps of fur on the floor this morning when we woke. So, if he is not allergic to chicken, then it must be some other ingredient in SD and RC which is making him itch. But finding that ingredient will not be an easy task.

Have you tried Pet Addiction organic food for cats ? My doggie skin and coat are much better after she went on it. It may work for Chanh Chang....

I have seen the Pet Addiction brand of dog food in the shops and on some taxi advertisements, but not cat food so far, so I'm not sure if they have brought in the cat food into S'pore.

I was quite intrigued by its vegetarian dog food!

Hi Auntie P,

I have seen the cat food. Or at least I know that my vet from ARC carries it :-)

The link - yeast. How is CC now? Remember to add Vitamin B1 or multivits and cod liver oil to the home cooked food.
