IAMS Veterinary Formula™ Maximum Calorie™ Plus

IAMS® Veterinary Formulas Maximum-Calorie™ (for canine and feline) is an especially nutrient-dense diet and has been formulated to give your pet the most nutrition per feeding.

Maximum-Calorie™ formulas are especially dense nutritionally. This means they provide your pet with high amounts of nutrients in a small amount of food. This formula is nutritionally balanced to promote wound healing, help promote muscle repair and help replace red blood cells. Its mix of omega fatty acids can help nutritionally manage inflammation in dogs and promote healthy skin and coat in both cats and dogs. Your veterinarian can tell you how much to feed your pet based on his weight and need to gain or maintain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New shelter kitty. Scared fussy eater. Loves it! My new fussy eater has rejected several other brands of wet and dry for three weeks. Loved this kibble as soon as it was introduced. Very nutritious so her half cup spaced thru out the day keeps her satisfied and happy. Also, seems like her poop not as smelly or abundant as under old food which I interpret as her food being easily digestible. We are both happy. Very satisfied with this product.
