Iams® Veterinary Formula™ Intestinal Plus Low-Residue™ Adult

Recommended For: Print


Loose stools can have many causes. Although the problem can be caused by something more serious, your veterinarian can explain how dogs and cats can develop loose stools from something as simple as heat, exercise, diet, or stress from boarding.

In 3 days*, you can start to soothe your pet's digestive sensitivities. Iams® Veterinary Formulas Intestinal - Low-Residue™ works by providing a unique blend of high-quality fiber, protein, and fat sources to help naturally strengthen the intestine and make digestion easier. In a clinical study, dogs with stress-related loose stools were fed Intestinal - Low-Residue™. Overall, they showed:

  • noticeable improvement (some firming) after 3 days
  • fewer daily episodes of loose stools after 1 week

Like the dogs in our study, your pet may start to show results in 3 days, although results may vary based on the cause of loose stools and individual response to nutritional management.
