In designing our foods we were careful to make them as low allergy as possible. It is true that chicken is a common allergen to dogs and cats. However, it is the chicken protein that triggers the allergies. Thus we have ensured that that chicken fat we use is free of chicken protein. Chicken fat free from protein will not cause allergies.
If your cat has renal failure, it is important that your cat’s diet should be managed by a veterinarian. There have been cats with renal failure that have done very well on Addiction, but because Addiction is a high protein canned food, it is important to mix it with a carbohydrate (e.g potato) to reduce the protein component of the meal.
Addiction Cat Canned Foods are high in Protein and low in Carbohydrates. If you feed by “free-choice feeding” where cats eat as they wish when left to themselves it is important to monitor your cats weight and adjust the feeding amounts if necessary. Unagi (Eel) is naturally high in Calcium, Chondroitin and Omega 3 and many owners find this wonderful for cats or dogs with Arthritis. Also Unagi is found in the pristine freshwater streams in New Zealand and does not contain many of the pollutants found in marine fish.
