Hi, I am looking to find a chicken based dry cat food. Our cat is allergic to fish and some dry foods have fish oil in them. Any brands to consider? Thanks in advance for any help.

Please consider switching your kitties over to wet food. Not only is there a wider variety of chicken type flavors available, wet food is much better for them in the long run. It's been a long time since I bought any dry food, so can't make any recommendations on it. At the very least, I'd say stay away from the really cheap stuff.

Check out the Merrick Purrfect Bistro grain-free dry foods - I think they're fish free.

Instinct and Wellness may be other brands that are fish free.

I'd start with foods that are grain free, with limited ingredients.

Good luck!

Thanks for the replies. We mix the diet with dry and wet food. Wet food is easier to find in chicken/poultry flavors. The dry food is harder to find. The tips are helpful, so we'll check out the suggestions posted.

You might look at some of the dry foods from "Beyond". Last night I had to make a late night grocery store run because I had decided to try a new one from Rachel Ray to vary our guys diets a little. They hated it and were threatening to picket. I went out and got them their old favorite "Beyond" and all is well.

Ah yes, that familiar mistake that most of us cat guardians have made at one time or another. I believe it's in the Dietary Preferences section of the Official Housecat Handbook, where it clearly states that "all menu changes must be pre-approved".

We found the Beyond brand cat food locally, so we bought the chicken based one. Let's hope our current cat and the additional one arriving Monday approve of our choice. Thanks for your advice.

I used to give my cats the chicken and brown rice Abound, a house brand from Kroger. Decent ingredient list and no fish that I recall.

We tried going with raw food one time and Boots (alpha, tuxedo cat, 19lbs) looked at it, put his ears back, and then marched over to us to tell us that a terrible mistake had occurred (meow, looked back, then demanded answers). You can see a pic of him on his mighty throne...which is a chaise for humans, the most expensive cat bed I've ever bought...
