What Are Novel Proteins in Cat Food? | PetSmart Food Center
Hello everyone. Totally! This is one is the best protein diet at the world, if you ask me. I have to say that I was a little bit skeptical at the beginning, but now, I am not at all. Even if I do have a cat for a long time, I didn’t know that this protein can be so helpful. When my friend told me about it, I was skeptical, but after a while, I have decide to try it. My cat had some problems with food and this was excellent choice. So, definitely, novel protein diets do eliminate pet food allergy.
No two cats are alike and as a result, one cat might do well on novel protein like and another on or venison . The key to food allergies is finding a novel protein and carbohydrate and patiently testing.

In extreme allergy cases, a “novel” protein might be necessary. Novel proteins are ingredients that your dog or cat’s body is not familiar with. Chicken, beef, turkey, and lamb are meats used most often in pet food. Novel proteins for pets eating these ingredients would include venison, rabbit, duck, kangaroo or ostrich. Because the pet’s body has never been exposed to these ingredients, they are unlikely to solicit a negative response from the body. It is important to also use a novel carbohydrate when trying to fully eliminate allergic reactions. If a cat was eating a chicken and rice based food, a novel food for them might be duck and potato.Food allergies typically develop to ingredients that the cat has been exposed to over a long period of time. Therefore, low-allergen or “hypoallergenic” diets are based on novel protein and carbohydrate ingredients that are not commonly used in commercial pet foods. Ingredients to avoid include chicken, beef, fish, corn, wheat, soy, and dairy products. (Of course, if your cat has been eating a food containing lamb, rice, eggs, or any other proteins, those ingredients must be avoided as well.)Fortunately, there are lots of different options available for our furry little carnivores! If you’re looking for a diet for your cat who has a food allergy or sensitivity, you’ll want to look for foods made with novel proteins. A novel protein is a protein source that your cat has never eaten before.
