Switched to this from a diet cat food when I realized how old my cat was getting. The cat likes this much better. And, not to be too gross, his stool is healthier looking (it looked dry with the diet food.)
My cat is now 18 years old and for many years she has had trouble with hairballs no matter what cat food formula I tried. Finally with this food the hairballs being expelled are gone. She has lost weight and is a happier cat.
The only odd thing is that she has lost a lot of hair but there is fish oil in the food so I am just watching to see if it comes back.
When I sat down and read the IAMS Pro Active Health Cat Food bag, I was happy. I was impressed with how well formulated this cat food was, and I felt great about giving it to my cats. However, I didn't really think to them it would make a large difference. Some cats are picky, mine are not. I knew for their over all health, this would be a great change, but for their palate I didn't think I would have much to share.
Boy was I wrong! As I just shared, I was thrilled and feeling great that this

cat food is formulated directly for my cats - to help their digestion, hair balls and metabolism. What I wasn't prepared for? The fact that my cats are on cloud nine with this new IAMS Cat food! The little bites size pieces, which are smaller than any other adult cat food we've tried (them, not me, I don't eat it sillies..) are perfect for my oldest cat, who finds them easier to chew.
I used to get up and feed the kitties, and they would make their way to their food when "they were ready".. But now, clearly every thing has changed. After the first time feeding them the new IAMS food, they are climbing all over me when they want it. I keep them on a schedule, but they never used to really "anticipate" feeding time. Now, if I'm within five minutes of the time I feed them, they are already jumping on me, and rolling around. It's silly, and sweet, and I owe it all to IAMS. IAMS really has added a closeness between my cats and our family. They love the food, we love giving it to them, and they seem to be grateful. Thank you for a wonderful Cat food I can feel great about, and my Kitties Love - Thanks IAMS!
I received Iams Proactive Health Dry Food free from the Iams brand for my cat Chloe to try because I am a BzzAgent. Iams Proactive Health Dry Food offers great health benefits for cats. This dry food helps promote a healthy metabolism, healthy weight, and a healthy digestive system for cats. These are benefits I love to provide for my pets. The size of the dry food pieces are the perfect size for cats. The flavor combination was chicken and salmon which is a perfect flavor combination for

My cat Chloe was a little more accepting of the Iams Proactive Health dry food than my other cat. She seemed to enjoy it, however, it would not be her first choice. Overall, this dry food is high quality and worth a try.
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.
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.
I was very excited for me and my kitty when I was select for the campaign. I was interested in providing my cat with a new and possibly better alternative for the cat food I was currently feeding her. When I received the bag I read about all of the essentials that the cat food claimed to provide. I was excited to give my cat the food to try. I noticed something over the first few days of feeding her. The first day she seemed to enjoy it. However, as the days went on she seemed to stray away from

it more and more. She does not eat it when I put the food in front of her now. I suppose she doesn't like something about it, Possibly the taste or that it is hard food. I'm not sure, I must say it made me sad to see that she didn't like it because it is full of essential good things that cats need. Even though the cat food wasn't for my little one I do recommend it for anyone that is trying to feed there cat good food with essentials in it. I also think the brand is very good and well known.
My cat is typically hard to please; he's so picky about what food he wants to eat. I rotate through brands all the time, trying to find something that he'll enjoy. He gravitates to mostly dry cat food, so I was on the lookout for something he would eat and return to regularly.
What is important to me is quality--not a cat food that is more fillers or byproducts than protein. I also want something that is suitable for my two-year old cat. He's mainly indoors, so his health and nutrition are

important factors when I choose his meals.
I've tried the Iams brand for his wet food in the past, but I had not tried the Iams Proactive Health dry cat food. Before I even served it, I checked the information on the packaging: premium cat nutrition, 0% fillers, healthy teeth, skin, coat, and metabolism. I looked at the ingredients and noted that the first ingredient is chicken. From experience, I know how hard it is to find a dry cat food that has the protein listed first instead of another ingredient. The ingredients also include dried egg, dried beet pulp--food I recognize! There is also a helpful feeding guideline to ensure that you are not overfeeding your cat.
I also researched the price of the 5.7 pound bag, because who isn't price conscious? I can get the Iams Proactive Health Original with Chicken for $10.99 or less if on sale. It's in the majority of my local markets, too! If I follow the feeding advice, and I only give my cat one cup a day, 5 pounds for $10 is a great bargain!
Obviously, if my cat wouldn't eat it, that would be a huge problem. Yet, when I measured out the cup of food and put it in the bowl, he ran to it and started munching! He really enjoys the taste! It honestly gives me peace of mind!
I definitely recommend Iams for your cat; it comes in smaller-sized bags if you don't want to commit to a 5 lb bag. But if your cat proves to be like mine, you may be visiting your local market soon to stock up!
My cats, tidy and toto, love the taste of this iams formula. They are domestic shorthairs and come running when they here me opening the bag of food. Their coat and overall health seems to have improved since i,ve been feeding them the iams for the last three months.
Ive got two indoor cats, one I'm trying to get to lose weight and the other old boy who needs to put some on.
This food is great for the both of them , in only two weeks I'm seeing results.
My cats throws-up most dry food. They love this food and keep it down.
Please continue to provide this dry food.
I've been purchasing this brand of Iams for my 2 cats, for several years now. It's a God send! It's wonderful for controlling hairballs. I tried a "senior" (11 years and older) for them a couple of weeks ago. My male cat couldn't this dry food down, plus he had diarrhea. I quickly "re bought" the Hairball food for both. My male has stopped bringing up hairballs and the diarrhea he was having has stopped also. I'm on a limited income and wish I could take back what food hasn't been eaten of the

Thank you Iams for making a variety of dry food for cats!
