    Hi,

    Have been ordering food from Happy kitty for a while but been back on Hills Z/D for their sensitive tummies/food elimination diet.
    Had them on to D/D with venison for a good while to wean them of Hill's on to Ropocat/Mac's/tundra etc.
    D/D seems to be out of stock everywhere, hence back on Z/D.

    Looking at MAC's Mono Sensitive Turkey, it says Meat (min. 70% turkey) and animal derivatives (turkey heart, turkey gizzard and turkey liver)
    Does that mean it's high in offal or not?
    They all seem to label differently.

    What others from HKC are more muscle meat than offal?

    Many thanks guys.

    For my non-offal tolerating cat, Animonda Vom Feinstein for sterilised cats (all varieties of turkey flavour), has been the best thing for him. I think it also helps that it is slightly lower in fat.

    My other sensitive stomach cat is doing really well on Macs sensitive turkey, lamb and their normal turkey and lamb. Second best seems to be GranataPet turkey or tundra, but is best only having them occasionally.

    Ropocat was a disaster and for some reason Feringa seems to make them ill.

    Macs turkey is a good price and decent quality, so probably my favourite brand.

    I am not sure whether Macs Turkey is high in offal (at 30% offal) compared with other foods as not all foods list the offal content separately unfortunately.

    My two boys with IBD did not get on with Macs or Macs Sensitive in Turkey or Lamb (it made them vomit) but like Pepperpots' cat they do very well on Animonda Vom Feinsten fTurkey flavours for neutered cats. Possibly due partly to low offal content and definitely due to lower fat content.

    I can't vouch for the offal level in Mac's Turkey but I have previously enquired about the level in their Sensitive Lamb. I can't remember the precise percentage now but it was relatively low, about 30 ish percent I think. They don't count heart as offal though, it is classified as muscle meat.

    If you drop Sam at HKC an e-mail I'm sure that she will make enquiries from the manufacturer on your behalf if she doesn't know the precise answer herself.
