Cat has scabs from excessive scratching around his face. Is it the food?

by Elizabeth

My indoor Maine Coon mix is a picky eater. I've changed his dry and canned (especially canned) food multiple times with no reaction other than not eating it. I recently bought a bag of blue buffalo healthy weight. I've noticed him scratching like crazy sometimes to the point of scabs on his face.


Could it be the food? To my knowledge, he does not have fleas. The flea comb has flaky skin and dry scabs on it.

Yes, it could be the food

Cats can have reactions to food. Some people I know have had bad luck with Blue Buffalo and food allergies in their cats.
