Odin for the past few days has been acting a bit "off" so to speak. This started after I attempted to change their food to Royal Canin kitten food instead of the Science Diet food. I had looked at the ingrediants and it seemed Royal Canin was a bit better food. Both Odin and Isis ate it the first day, if it was up to her she would still be eating it, he however didn't seem to take well to it. Has had loose bowels and even vomited once. I have since replaced it all with the Science Diet again but he seems hesitant to eat.

I called the vet but he didn't seem to concerned since he was exibiting a fever or anything like that that would make him think it was anything serious. Just curious if others have had this problem or not, and if so how long did the situation take to remedy itself?

Hi, we had the same problem with our two.

We have always feed ours on Royal Canin, and a few times we have tried them on another brand they were both sick and had loose stools.

Put them back onto Royal Canin and they were fine again.

Our breeder told us that Bengals have sensitive stomachs.

Hi There,

I think their upset tummys may be due to the sudden change in food. It's best to mix in small amounts of the the new food (Royal Canin) into their Science Diet. Gradually adding a bit more of the new food each day so they don't notice the transition.

But if they won't touch the Science now anyway stick with Royal Canin if they prefer it. There's lots of different types of food with Royal Canin so if you think their stools haven't hardened then you could try them on Royal Canin Beauty and Fit or Sensible 33.
But remember when switching food to just add 25% of new food to the 75% of the food they are used to and gradually increase the change.

Some Bengals do have sensitive tummies and don't like their food being changed.

Let us know how you get on :D

Exactly, try to mix it in gradually each day over the course of a week. Are you switching to the Siamese - Royal Canin? I did it a few weeks ago, from Science Diet Sensitive stomach to the Royal Canin siamese diet. They love the new one, they eat like its their last meal each time!

Ours have had very sensitive stomachs with loose bowels. It hasn't been very fun on that front!
