Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cat loves it...too much! We switched from Natural Balance cat food because our cat was puking constantly in displeasure. That changed when we started her in on Iams Hairball Control. I don't know what you folks did with the new formula as of a year ago, but it's like we've got a little piggie instead of a cat. She chows down on it like there's no tomorrow, and has added about 2 lbs in the time span of a single bag (about a month). We're going to switch now to the hairball and weight control stuff. Hopefully she'll work some of the extra fluff off, because we're worried about her going through the floor when she jumps off her scratching post ;)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Change - Cat refuses to eat I am not sure what product developer approved this change but our cats refuse to eat it. We have been buying IAMS for 10 years but we will be looking for something else now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from why change the formula?!! My cats LOVED the chicken only hairball formula and will not touch this chicken with salmon stuff. I see a lot of others on this site, as well as Chewy who experience the same problem. WHY change the formula? Why not just add chicken and salmon but leave the chicken alone

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cat will not eat new formula It appears the formula of this has changed. It used to be just chicken and now it is chicken and salmon and a different shape and size. My cat refuses to eat the food since this change. Wish Iams would still offer the Hairball care in just chicken.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My cats won’t touch the new formula I had the same experience as Ciel did in the review just below mine. I have fed my cats Iams Hairball Control for 9 years. It cured the hairballs and the cats loved it. They would not touch the new formula. I tried everything, even mixing in a tiny amount in their old food. They would not eat from the bowl, even with just a tiny amount mixed in. I did in fact call your customer service number to ask the company to consider bringing back the chicken-only formula as an option. I was not offered a refund, and have since thrown away a 7 lb bag of food. I managed to find two 7 lb bags of the old formula and my cats are happy again, but once those are gone I’m sadly going to have to find a new brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Different formula?? For several years I have been a happy customer (with a happy cat) of Iams Proactive Health cat food for hairball care...until recently. Unfortunately, the formula has apparently changed. The kibbles do not even look the same. They are various colors and seem somewhat smaller in size now. My cat no longer likes the taste and even if I open a new fresh bag he barely eats any of it. I'm having to supplement his diet and am now on the search for another brand. Please Iams...go back to the original formula.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fix the bag. It does not work to pour I love this product. The cats are happy and healthy. However, it is a total pain to try to pour the product into a container. Can you please make an easy pour spout or something that works.
