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 kitten food.
  • Remember to have clean, fresh water available for your cat at all times.
  • Because IAMS HEALTHY SENIOR™ with chicken 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jazz loves it!!! My almost 17 year old kitty has been having issues with urinary tract infections for over a year. This past February I didn't think she was going to make it. She got down to 4 lbs, very weak, no appetite. We gave her antibiotics that cleared up the infection but we still had a hard time getting her to eat. I got her the Iams for Seniors aobut 3 weeks ago and she absolutely loves it! She almost climbed in the bag when I opened it. She is up to 5 lbs now and is almost back to her old self. Up on the bathroom vanity to drink water straight from the faucet. She hasn't done that for almost 8 months. Bright eyed, full of energy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my 18 yr old loves it I have a tiny 18 y/o cat and it was hard to find her hard food she would eat and we sure dont want her to lose anymore weight. She has arthritis also. We thought we would try the food since we have always had our cats on Iams formulas since they were kittens. We bought a bag to try and she loves it, she is always at it eating away. She seems more perky and happy now, not bad for an 18 almost 19 y/o female kitizen

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 11+ years Lively Senior but no KIDNEY SUPPORT ?? It would seem intuitively obvious that an older cat could benefit from some kidney support in your dry food. You have nice diagrams on the bag, but surprisingly, no kidney drawing. I know you sell a separate blend under a Veterinarian Diet. Certainly do not want to compete with that! But you could include a modest amount of kidney dry food content for older cats, and add another drawing to your bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 18 yr. old loves it! My now 18 yr. old female cat had a hard time a year or two ago walking, jumping, etc. I started her on "Lively Senior" and it seems like her aches & pains got so much better! She's still doing well, and although she doesn't run much anymore, she's eating well & seems like a happy girl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Discontinued??? My cat NEEDS this cat food. He's about 13 years old. He's been on it for a while. Iams his whole life. Suddenly I cannot find this senior plus anywhere. He's not responding well to any other cat food. I've tried about 5 other kinds, several by Iams. Not producing solid bowel movements. What is going on, Iams?
