Rated 5 out of 5 by from IAMS with Salmom I love the IAMS brand but I noticed when I used the cat food with salmon instead of chicken my cat stopped having dandruff. Now I can't find the IAMS with salmon. Have they stopped making it? I have moved and can't find it anywhere. HELP!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Aduld Hairball Care My cat has done well in IAMS Adult. Last time I bought Hairball Care. She would pull it from the bowl and scatter it on the floor. She even carried some into the family room and dropped it at my feet. I went back to Adult only. All is well. If you try Hairball Care, buy the smallest bag possible for a test. Money doesn't grow on trees, afterall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for hairball problems 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Maybe if we started with this Formula Because Leo is a medium hair and coughs up hair rarely (that we see anyway), we trialed the Hairball Formula as an adult. I'm sure it tastes different; he doesn't like it as well as Original. Perhaps if hairballs increase, we may attempt to mix it back in. So we will just be good about daily brushing. He is an outside boy, it may be extra things he eats that provoke the rare... regurgitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GLAD WE SWITCHED WE RESCUED OUR CAT...SHE IS A HEFTY 13 POUNDS, BUT MOST OF IT IS LOOSE SKIN...STILL, SHE IS CURVY. I THOUGHT I WAS DOING THE BEST THING FOR HER WHEN I PICKED UP A STORE BRAND "INDOOR CAT" FOOD-FIGURING SHE WOULD GET EVERYTHING SHE NEEDED. WELL, THE VET SAID THAT THE BEST THING FOR HER WAS THE HAIRBALL CARE. IT HAS LESS CARBS AND WILL HELP HER NOT TO GAIN WEIGHT AND STAY HEALTHY. IT HAS ALSO OBVIOUSLY BEEN GOOD TO TAKE CARE OF HAIRBALLS. IT'S NICE TO KNOW I'M DOING THE RIGHT THING FOR HER ON MULTIPLE LEVELS. AND OF THE "BETTER" BRANDS, IAMS IS SO AFFORDABLE ALSO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My girls love it 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.
