Hello, everyone!

I've had my cat for about 9 months, but she's 5 years old. Pepas has a lot of otitis and the vet suggested giving her hypoallergenic food. My cat is very used to eating wet food every day, so I'd really appreciate suggestions for a good brand of hypoallergenic food that has both kibble and wet food. The vet suggested a brand called Specific, but I can't find much information about it on the internet. Do you have any reliable alternatives that are available in Europe?

Thank you very much 🤗

Trying going through Canada. The US has such stringet rules about shipping food it may be difficult. A recent cat food by Dr Pol can not be shipped to Europe and he has big following there.  Canada gets alot of European brands and there regulations are different you may have luck there.

Hi Maria,

I think trying hypoallergenic food for your cat Pepas is a good idea. Specific is a good option, but is usually only available through veterinary clinics so that might be why you're having difficulty finding it online. Your vet can probably order it in for you if you're interested in trying it.

We have some suggestions here but some of them may not be available in Europe;

Common hypoallergenic food brands available in the EU include Hills, Royal Canin and Purina proplan.

This site may be useful if you don't use it already, to purchase hypoallergenic food in Europe;

I hope that helps,
