he hasn't really lost weight but hasn't gained any either
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.
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.
I received this product from Iams to review. I have a six-year-old female cat. I started transitioning my cat 2 weeks ago. She has been on this food since and has very much enjoyed it.
First I would like to note that Iams recommends transitioning a cat from their old food to a new food over a period of four days. This is something completely new to me. I switched cat foods a lot and have never thought of transitioning my cat between foods. This makes me reconsider some of the foods she has

rejected previously. Maybe if I had transitioned her correctly she would have enjoyed these foods.
Here are the pros of this food:
1. My cat likes it. Some of her other previous foods she has rejected. This one she enjoyed so I will most definitely be purchasing it again.
2. The ingredients are quality ingredients. Many of the other cheaper cat food brands have fillers has as their main ingredient. Feeding my cat the Iams brand, I know she is getting quality food and makes me feel more confident with what I am giving her.
3. My cat can have issues with her digestive health. This product did not seem to have any ill effects on her whatsoever. She's very easily tolerated the change and has had no issues over the past two weeks that I have been feeding her this food.
1. While it is easily available online, I have looked in my local Walmart and have been unable to find this specific Iams item. There are several other Iams items in my Walmart, this one is not there. Sometimes I do run low on cat food and where this has limited availability, I would have to supplement with some other food.
2. The price of this cat food is much higher than those of other brands. While the ingredients are of higher quality, some people will be hesitant to pay the more expensive cost.
Overall, I think that this product is great. My cat enjoyed the new cat food and I will be buying more iams products in the future.
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!
I have been very impressed with Iam's Adult with Chicken cat food, and it really takes a lot for a dry cat food to impress me , and even harder for it to impress my cat, Mudvayne ( yes, names after the band ). Normally , I have to mix a high end wet food with any dry food that I give him, and if I am lucky, he will eat the wet food , maybe some of the dry food. Sometimes he just licks the wet food off of the dry food leaving the dry food behind.
So imagine my surprise when I gave him a scoop of

the Iams Adult with Chicken, that I received compliments of BzzAgent, straight out of the bag, no wet food added and he began to gobble it right up without any finicky hesitation at all! I was in complete shock that a cat food that was packed with all of nutrients he needs also appealed to his super picky taste buds.
I would definitely recommend Iams Adult with Chicken to anyone with a a super persnickety feline in their life, that not only wants a food that their furry love will find super yummy, but will also help keep their fur baby's diet packed with all of the nutrients he/she needs as well.
Iams Adult with Chicken will definitely be becoming a staple in our pet food pantry and I would venture a guess that it will become a staple in anyone else's who gives it a try :)
For years I've been having to give my oldest cat hairball remedy which she hated. It was stressful for both of us and frustrating for me because I didn't know how much was right for her or how often I should give it. This food takes the stress out of it and the guess work as well. Both my 10 month old kitten and her love the taste and their stools are a lot firmer.
I've used the Purina One for hairballs, and I must say, Iams is superior. I have 2 long haired cats, and constantly having hair ball issues. Iams has helped reduce the problem significantly. thank you
I adopted a Siamese mix cat from a local rescue group who told me she was having diarrhea due to some rich cat food donated to the rescue. My vet tested for worms and parasites and found nothing. For 3 years, I've tried different foods for sensitive systems, even one specific for the breed with very limited success. I tried grain free thinking she must have an allergy - the grain free foods just made the problem worse. Iams Digestive Care is the only food that works well for her. She and my

other Siamese like the taste and her digestive system is finally in sync.
Pippi and I thank you!
Digestive Care lives up to its advertisement. I have 5 cats. One needed to lose some weight. 3 of my cats are more sensitive than the others. So finding a food ALL of them will eat without digestive upset is a BIG CHALLENGE! I did my research and decided to try Iams Digestive Care. Another reason I needed to switch was due to financial reasons. I had been feeding a boutique style cat food that cost way more than Iams Digestive Care.
My cats have eaten Iams Digestive Care for six weeks and are

doing great. My over weight cat does feel full and isn't begging for food. I feed to what their body size should be (also add some wet). Their fur is soft and smooth. Eyes look great. Two of my cats HAD bad eye drainage but even that is clearing up. My overweight cat is slowly losing his weight while not offending the sensitive systems of my other cats. Cats should always lose weight SLOWLY if they need to shed a few pounds. A vet should also be consulted since an underlying medical condition could contribute to obesity. In my case, I was overfeeding...oops!
The kibble size is not to small and not to large. Food smells fresh when the bag is opened. I like that I can get this food at a variety of stores, including those opened 24 hours a day. My cats give this food 20 paws up :-) And my wallet says "thank you Iams!" I found a really good food that is no longer breaking my piggy bank and agrees with ALL of my cats.
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.
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!
