Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our 2 boyz luv it. We luv our vomit free home. We were on a vet recommended top shelf (SD) dry cat food for indoor older adults. I saw the tv ad for Iams and bot some at Petsmart. Both boys, 6 & 9, were all over the bag before I could get my coat off. We've been cleaning up lines of dry (mostly, but not always) regurged food. Unless something changes, we have the cat food du jour, du vida! I haven't compared price per pound yet, but mess free is worth any extra we might be paying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad replacement for the digestive formula I had my cat on the digestive formula for years. It was the only thing she would eat, in addition to her wet food. She is 19 years old and they just changed the formula to this new sensitive stomach and the same food has been sitting in her bowl for a month she won't eat it. I'm upset they changed it and it looks like I am not the only one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Food But Wish They'd Have Different Flavor I switched my cat to this food because he kept getting sick with his old food.He doesn't throw up anymore, and it's a lot less clean up.However, I think my cat is tired of chicken. When he was getting sick, we tried so many different foods and he just doesn't like chicken (even wet food, wouldn't touch it).We had cut him back a 1/5 of a cup because the vet told us to (and he's fat), but since he switched to Iams, and he's leaving behind even more food; he's lost so much weight! It might be because the food is nutrient heavy, but I wish I could try a different flavor to see for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ACTIVE & SHINY COAT I've tried Blue buffalo, didn't like it because my cats digestive tract is super sensitive and Canin which is so expensive!! I tried Iams for acouple of months now and my cat loves this brand. He seems more playful and toned down on weight. And also, love that your brand is affordable. THANKS TONS!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where can I purchase? I bought Sensitive Stomach food for years - it's the only dry food my extremely fussy cat will eat. Now at WalMart and Target the bags say "Digestive Care" and thinking they are the same thing (pink bags), I purchased it. Nope. Cat sniffs it and walks away! I was in Green Bay, WI visiting relatives in mid-November and at Copps saw the "Sensitive Stomach" bag so grabbed that. Yay! Happy cat again! But now that's gone and I cannot find it anywhere - even the websites linked to IAMS show "Digestive Care" when looking at the "Sensitive Stomach" option to buy. Can anyone help? Thanks SO much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! We recieved our cat as a stray kitten and everything we tried for cat food seemed to make it sick. So we decided to try Iams Sensitive and he has never had a problem with his food. He is a happy healthy cat and we would never switch to another cat food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with this product! I have used Iams for my cats for about four years now. I was usingIAMS® ProActive Health™ Adult Indoor™ Weight & Hairball CareI believe, or it was just an indoor formula. However they would still throw up. So i decided to give Iams one more try with the sensitive stomach brand. What a relief it was. My cats stopped throwing up as much as hey were, however I am still finding hairballs about 1-2 times per every week to two weeks. However, the nasty throw up I was finding isn't happening all the time. I will stick with It though as I can definitively tell s difference! Just wish there was both hairball control and digestive health in one. I think ths would be the perfect combination for my cats. Thank you Iams

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Sensitive Systems 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solution to daily hairballs For the past 8 years we have tried numerous brands and formulas to try to Persia's daily hairball blessings. This product worked immediately!! After 1 week I had to check to with my husband if he had noticed any hairballs. We were so amazed to realize we hadnt. I will never change now! Thank you for a fantastic remedy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They love it! I have been feeding my cats Iams Digestive Care since the came to me in Sept 2012. I have only had one hairball in that time from each of them and I have trouble keeping their bowls filled throughout the day. So much so that I have to monitor how much I put out lest I want porky cats. So, thank you for not having me listen to hairballs every month or so and for making a product that my cats absolutely love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A True Iams Believer I have been feeding Iams since the late 80s. I used to show Persians and there was simply no other option but Iams in my opinion. One of my persians lived to be 18 and my youngest is now 14. I can't imagine that type of longevity with any other type of cat food. Thank you Iams for making such a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep it coming! I had been feeding the Proactive Health formula exclusively. Then, found it not available. Now available occasionally. Get the system full so I can buy it. It's wonderful for my four cats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lives up to Ad 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.
