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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great food for both cats! I've bought this for both my cats (siblings) for several years. They're coats are shiny and soft. My male has lost all his teeth, though he still chews up this food daily. Hair balls or spit up can still be a problem, but not as frequently as before this food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Both my cats Love this! I have two cats, siblings. My female, Mittens, is long-haired and her brother is shorter haired. Her hair can get matted easily, so I brush her often. They both seem to enjoy this cat food. It does control the hairball issue better than the non-hairball Iams cat food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for skinny seniors! One of our kitties is a senior and needs a hair all formula to "move things along"... She even had to go to an emergency clinic once. Unfortunately, many of the hair all formulas are also weight control, and she has always been very skinny! All of our kitties like this food and it really helps both her issues and cuts down on everyone else's hair balls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food for both cats! 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 Senior- 11 years and older, food, since I still have a lot left.Thank you Iams for making a variety of dry food for cats!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product! My cat was having problems with gaining weight, and getting rid of hair balls; however, after getting this dry food he had gotten so much better in such a short time. My cat is 14 years old, and he also is an indoor and outdoor cat. So it's great to find such a great food for all these things I have to focus on.PLUS it's easier for older cat to eat if you are seeing that your cat is having problems with bigger food pieces. :)-J
