How to get it? With nutrition that thinks ahead.
Chicken is a key ingredient in IAMS Cat Foods. Its protein can help maintain healthy muscle structure and it naturally provides each of the amino acids essential to carnivorous animals. And chicken adds great taste.
Another common chicken-based ingredient is natural chicken flavor, also called chicken digest. Natural chicken flavor adds palatability and nutrients. It is high-quality protein and fat material that has been reduced to amino and fatty acids to improve taste through an enzymatic process.Return to Top
Internal organs are a rich source of protein, fats and minerals, such as iron, that are essential to cat health and they add a taste that cats enjoy. Including some ground bone provides a good source of minerals, such as calcium. Some pet food manufacturers formulate their products without such ingredients to appeal to cat owners, rather than for the health of the cats themselves. However, the nutritional needs of cats are not the same as those of humans.Return to Top
