Your cat’s gastro-intestinal tract and its skin are highly sensitive, and exposed to lots of stimuli. Sometimes the immune system cannot cope with these stimuli and reacts, which manifests itself in food allergies and intolerances.
If your cat has a food allergy or intolerance this becomes visible in the shape of itchy skin or diarrhoea. Even the smallest amounts of an allergenic ingredient can cause these symptoms, so it is very difficult for pet owners to identify the precise ingredient in a given food that is giving their pet these reactions. It is uncommon for a pet to suffer from extreme allergies; a range of food intolerances are far more common.

Changing your pet's diet and length of treatment:
Changing your pet's diet should generally be carried out over several days, however, where food allergy or intolerance is suspected, or where there is acute diarrhoea, HYPOALLERGENIC can be fed without a transition phase. If signs of intolerance disappear, this diet can be used indefinitely.
