Increasingly pet parents are seeking the simplicity of a diet limited in proteins, ingredients and grains for their cats and dogs, especially for those pets with ingredient intolerances or food sensitivities. “Many pet parents look for specialized diets because they want both the presence of positive, simple ingredients but also the absence of negatives – those select ingredients they may be avoiding for their pet,” said Sapir.

If your kitty has been eating a quality adult cat food for some time and her stool has begun to smell foul due to a recent onset of chronic diarrhea, she may have a gastrointestinal condition called inflammatory bowel disease. This condition presents with the symptom of diarrhea, which is exacerbated by diet. The inciting cause for this reaction can be from an ingredient found in a cat’s normal commercial diet, most often the protein source. If your veterinarian suspects inflammatory bowel disease, he will recommend a hypoallergenic diet that contains a single, novel protein. Inflammatory bowel disease is rarely cured, but such dietary management may control the symptoms, minimizing her bouts of diarrhea.

These foods are usually fed to cats that have food allergies or food intolerances. They typically have a single protein source and a single carb source – ideally something that your cat hasn’t eaten previously. The idea is to change your cat’s diet to something that won’t trigger his allergy or food intolerance.
