I just adopted a kitten and the girl who was fostering him was feeding him Royal Canin kitten food. I bought a bag, but I want to switch him to something better. I plan on gradually making the change so I don't cause any issues but I want to get something ASAP. However, I need something that doesn't contain any chicken at all. This seems to be impossible to find!

The reason is, my dog is highly allergic to chicken. Even a little taste will give him awful hot spots and leave him uncomfortable for days. I am keeping the kitten's food separate but accidents happen, and I don't want to jeopardize my dog's health.

So, any suggestions on chicken free kitten food? I've found options for cats - but nothing specifically for kittens. Does it matter if I don't give him kitten food? Is there really a difference?
