So after about a year of battling allergies; including giving allergy injections and medicated baths, we are again battling another skin infection mainly yeast :rolleyes: It has been a huge struggle. I just want her to have her beautiful skin back!!!

I broke down and started feeding Agnes a prescription diet for allergies. We are feeding Royal Canin Ultramino cat food. It is apparently better than the typical hydrolyzed protein diets. It reinforces the skin barrier with specific nutrients to support healthy skin in cats with skin sensitivity and irritation. My vet said that they are having very good results with it. Does anybody else feed this food? She seems to like it, but she loves dry food. It doesn't come in canned variety, hopefully they will soon. It is a prescription diet but thankfully I can order it through Chewy.com.

Thanks everyone for the positive vibes. This is a newer product from RC that my vet says she has seen good results and that at the vet conferences a lot of dermatologists are recommending this one. Hopefully this helps.

Quick update on the food change it seems to be helping her skin immensely!!! I’m so excited to have finally found something that is helping. Best part her ears aren’t as gunky as they used to be and her hardly smells.
