IAMS Veterinary Formula Weight Loss Restricted-Calorie™/Feline

IAMS® Veterinary Formulas Weight Loss—Restricted-Calorie can help your pet safely reach and maintain their optimal weight, promoting entire body health and helping to restore energy and mobility

How can Weight Loss™ formulas help?

Restricted-Calorie formulas are high-quality foods that have been specially developed to help your pet lose excess pounds safely. You can feed a reasonable amount of the formula and still control fat and calorie intake.

Restricted-Calorie formulas are low-calorie, low-fat diets with high-quality, animal-based proteins. This helps your pet lose fat and keep lean muscle. These protein sources also provide great taste, instead of using excessive levels of inexpensive fiber. Restricted-Calorie formulas also have an appropriate balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids for healthy skin and coat.
