Allergies?

I switched some time ago to Felidae dry for our 3 cats, which went well. There were no problems and I was really happy. We had a case of Hill's prescription canned food from the vet - not the recalled one and it didn't have wheat gluten - so I decided to have them finish that before switching to Felidae wet.

So, recently we switched over their wet food to Felidae as well. Two of them - the boys - just go bonkers for it, I've never seen anything like it. The third started having problems right after the switch. She has been vomiting alot, just liquid bile, no solid material - about once per day. She also seems to be having problems eating the dry kibble now too.

Could she be having an allergic reaction to one of the herbal ingredients? I noticed it contains things like alfalfa, sunflower, etc.

She was fine with the dry felidae before? Has she been checked by the vet recently to make sure it's not a health issue? She might just need time to get used to it, I would give it at least a month. If she's still unable to tolerate it, then you can try switching to a different brand of canned food. I think it's more likely to be one of the food ingredients more than the herbs. Unfortunately felidae has quite a few different protein sources and ingredients, so it makes it a bit hard to narrow down which one might be the problem.
