These guideline amounts are a starting point and your cat may need more food depending upon age, activity, and temperament. In order to reach optimal body condition, you may need to adjust food intake. This represents the total recommended volume of food per day. You should divide the total recommended feeding amount by the number of times you feed your cat per day to get the actual portion size per feeding.

If you have a kitten, pregnant or nursing cat, we recommend feeding IAMS ProActive Health Kitten Food.

Remember to have clean, fresh water available for your cat at all times.

Because IAMS ProActive Health Hairball Care Cat Food is complete and balanced for Maintenance, you do not need to add vitamin or mineral supplements.

When introducing IAMS Cat Food®, gradually mix it with your cat's current food over the course of 4 days.

SAFE HANDLING TIPS FOR ANY PET FOODS AND TREATS: Please wash your hands before and after handling any pet food or treat. Wash pet food bowls with soap and hot water after each use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver! Our 1½ year old cat was having stomach issues. Not fun. Every morning we'd wake to a nasty hairball that was thrown up (and a bad litter box). I was afraid he had some virus and was ready to take him to the vet the following day. By chance I passed the Hairball treats (which states to use in conjunction with the food) so I bought a bag of Hairball Care as well. We were desperate to get the issues under control. Within 2 days he was back to complete normal! It's been 2 weeks now and we have had only one additional hairball and it was a "normal" one. (I should mention that he is long-haired.) On a side note: he is CRAZY for the food. If his bowl is empty, he knocks it down the stairs and follows you around the house, batting at your legs, until you give him more. I have never seen him eat food so fast and so enthusiastically. Definitely a win-win for all of us!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IAMS with Salmom I love the IAMS brand but I noticed when I used the cat food with salmon instead of chicken my cat stopped having dandruff. Now I can't find the IAMS with salmon. Have they stopped making it? I have moved and can't find it anywhere. HELP!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Aduld Hairball Care My cat has done well in IAMS Adult. Last time I bought Hairball Care. She would pull it from the bowl and scatter it on the floor. She even carried some into the family room and dropped it at my feet. I went back to Adult only. All is well. If you try Hairball Care, buy the smallest bag possible for a test. Money doesn't grow on trees, afterall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for hairball problems I've used the Purina One for hairballs, and I must say, Iams is superior. I have 2 long haired cats, and constantly having hair ball issues. Iams has helped reduce the problem significantly. thank you

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Maybe if we started with this Formula Because Leo is a medium hair and coughs up hair rarely (that we see anyway), we trialed the Hairball Formula as an adult. I'm sure it tastes different; he doesn't like it as well as Original. Perhaps if hairballs increase, we may attempt to mix it back in. So we will just be good about daily brushing. He is an outside boy, it may be extra things he eats that provoke the rare... regurgitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GLAD WE SWITCHED WE RESCUED OUR CAT...SHE IS A HEFTY 13 POUNDS, BUT MOST OF IT IS LOOSE SKIN...STILL, SHE IS CURVY. I THOUGHT I WAS DOING THE BEST THING FOR HER WHEN I PICKED UP A STORE BRAND "INDOOR CAT" FOOD-FIGURING SHE WOULD GET EVERYTHING SHE NEEDED. WELL, THE VET SAID THAT THE BEST THING FOR HER WAS THE HAIRBALL CARE. IT HAS LESS CARBS AND WILL HELP HER NOT TO GAIN WEIGHT AND STAY HEALTHY. IT HAS ALSO OBVIOUSLY BEEN GOOD TO TAKE CARE OF HAIRBALLS. IT'S NICE TO KNOW I'M DOING THE RIGHT THING FOR HER ON MULTIPLE LEVELS. AND OF THE "BETTER" BRANDS, IAMS IS SO AFFORDABLE ALSO.
