These guideline amounts are a starting point and your cat may need more food depending upon age, activity and temperament. In order to reach optimal body condition, you may need to adjust food intake. This represents the total recommended volume of food per day. 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.
• If you have a kitten, pregnant or nursing cat, we recommend feeding IAMS kitten food.
• Remember to have clean, fresh water available for your cat at all times.
• Because IAMS HIGH PROTEIN cat food is complete and balanced for maintenance, you do not need to add vitamin or mineral supplements.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Choice I have four cats, my mom has 9, our cats really love this food. But where I live it’s been hard to find it. I use to buy it from the local Walmart, but of course when something sells, they quit selling it. When looking I have run into other cat owners who were looking for it also. Does this come in a larger bag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Why so much Corn products? I was hoping to swtich to Iams after reading review but Corn Grits, Ground Whole Grain Corn are the 2nd and 3rd ingredient leading me to believe that even the high protein formula is a low quality food for my cat. If Corn is supposed to be eaten in moderation by cats why is it in the top 4 ingredients usually above animal protein in every ingredient list I have read on Iams products?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Formula changed I was buying this until they started using by product meal as 2nd ingredient. Get the cat hooked, then change the good ingredients foe cheaper ones

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats love it I was looking to change their food as they were bored with their current food (translation: not eating it). They both loved it, even the one who prefers wet food. Haven't been able to find it in PetSmart anymore, does anyone have any suggestions where I can find it?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats love it! I agree with mdp2. My cats ate Purina One Salmon and Tuna for years. Then Purina changed the recipe and my cats would no longer eat it! I searched for a replacement, tried a few different brands, and then I found this one! My cats love it! We're one big, happy family again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Iams proactive health high protein chicken&salmon My cats have been eating Purina One tuna and salmon for over ten years. Last year they decided to change it. My cats would not eat it at all. I tried several different foods and wasted lots of money. I was told about this new flavor from Iams. From the first bag they loved it. But of course the price has gone up and no one ever has it in stock. Even on line it is hard to find. I will keep looking!!!
