Chicken Free Cat Food

If your cat prefers chicken free cat food, enjoy a number of quality options. Some cats simply do not enjoy the taste of chicken, others are allergic to chicken. If you're cat is suffering from itchy, dry skin and you've ruled out all grains as potential allergens, it's worthwhile to see if chicken is to blame. Many cats are allergic to chicken and owners state it is a struggle to uncover this type of allergy.

It's also difficult to find high quality pet foods that bypass poultry because it's a less expensive meat choice. Many companies add chicken fat regardless of the cat food's flavor. There are foods, however, that swap the poultry for lamb, fish or venison. Learn more about them.
