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™ Optimal Weight 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 3 out of 5 by from 40% carbs. I have twin cats. One is diabetic. I Hate that cat food companies do NOT list carb content. You have to add up the percentages they provide. Then subtract from 100% be careful not add both low and high crude fat!! Pick a number in middle of the two.... 40% is not bad for non prescribed dry food, eve though carbs is not a predatorial càrnivore's diet!Purina complete has 54% carbsThis has 40%Prescribed OM weight management has 28% carbsSo this is not bad for $7.79....mix no carb wet food for other meal. Daily carb content goes down to 20%.... Pretty good for diabetes...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weird Shape. Round Ball cat food. My cats do not enjoy this at all I was trying to transition over to this food for the weight control benefits. I have a 17 pound cat who will any cat food. From orijen to store brand. She will not touch this. I think it has a lot to do with the round pellets. Also this food has a good bit of corn in it. Overall I will not purchase this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kitties Love the Shape of Food We own six indoor cats.They are all very healthy, thanks to IAMS! We have some senior cats with the oldest being 15 and 13 years old. They act as though they are still young cats. Our other cats are young adults.One thing is for sure. Our cats most definitely prefer the small round shaped morsels as is sold in this particular IAMS food. They do not seem to want to eat the triangular shaped food.We are very happy with IAMS!! All our cats have a good weight and shiny coats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product with a Great Deal Wow, iams! My cat loves your product! She just can't stop meowing for more! Her food is alway unabandoned, and even my dogs like it better that their iams food! I recomend this cat food to anyone with a middle aged cat, and even people with kittens! It is a great product. I will not but anything else. I could tell the difference when we switched food after we bought her. It is excelent, and my cat is very active, espesially after meals. The iams weight control proactive health is a product for every cat of just about every age and I know that if my cat lives long enough so that she won't always eat it, another package of iams cat food is the only replacement that would be fit for my cat. And any other brand is out of the question completely. No one is convincing me to get another brand.
