Sub for Hills Science Diet I/D

Hi All, I'm new here and feeling a bit frustrated at the moment!
My 10 year old cat has been having some tests done due to vomiting and weight loss. He used to be 12 lbs and is now down to 7.
So far his blood tests have come back fairly normal; to make a long story short, I can either spend an additional $360 on tests (I've already spent $350) that may not tell us much more, or we can treat for Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Pancreatitis (she said the possibilities are those two or a slighter chance of intestinal cancer).
I've decided to go the route of treatment at the moment so he will go on meds, get 2 vitamin B12 shots over the next month and she wants him started in Hills I/D. My issue is that I don't like Hills products. I asked her if she could recommend something else or tell me what kinds of things I should look for in a food to help him. She told me she doesn't know of any other food other then the Hills.
So my question is, does anyone here know of a food that will be good for these issues that is better then the Hills?
I'm currently feeding him Taste of The Wild, it's mostly kibble but I've started adding in more wet as I've heard it's better for them.
Any advice would be great!
