Rated 5 out of 5 by catlady This food was a hit
I have tried so many other renal foods and this is the only one my kitty will eat. Finally something I don't have to doctor with tuna to get him to eat it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Valerie I wish my cat could provide a summary
He wouldn't eat it. No reflection on IAMS, as he also wouldn't eat three other brands that make renal/kidney diet food. He sure is picky! He also does not eat pate/loaf wet food. He prefers chunky, gravy filled foods. I will have to return this unfortunately. I give it three stars because I can't blame IAMS for my cat's distaste.

I have an old cat in the beginning stages of renal failure. Vet said i must get cat on senior food designed to help his issues. This is the only soft food my cat will eat besides tuna. I tried everything else. He prefers his Iams senior dry but likes the canned food for a snack in place of tuna. Super fast next day delivery of canned food from Chewey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RaspyMom Our cat has taken well to the food and hasn't shown any bad reactions.
This food is impossible to buy locally. I was told by my vet that it came in fish flavors, but that doesn't appear to be the case. It has a lot of grains such as corn, which irritates me. We were careful to feed our cats a grainfree diet upon adoption. He hasn't shown a poor reaction to such an extreme ingredient change. However we have been very slowly transitioning him. He has yet to be only on the IAMs.
He has always shown great interest in the food. Both the wet and dry. He was all over the chewy box when it arrived. So it clearly smells delicious to him. He also seems to enjoy the taste. Even our other cat, who isn't having renal problems, tries to steal his food.
It is too soon to say anything about how well the foods intended purpose is performing. However the vet seemed to believe this is the best food to support his declining kidney function while providing the higher protein a cat whose kidneys isn't further troubled requires.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CatMom Renal Pickiness
My 16yr old was recently diagnosed with Renal disease. He is picky; I was having problems finding him Renal food that he would eat..(he started out liking Royal Canin Renal LP Modified-P, however they changed their formula and stopped making it..he does NOT like the new formula.) On a desperate whim, I found that IAMS makes both wet and dry Renal foods for kitties..only available on line...I tried both and he is now eating a combination of both the wet and dry IAMS Renal Plus foods. I'm also happy with Chewy.com..customer service is nice, orders arrive promptly, prices competitive, good return policy and the do NOT barrage you with emails.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shawn Compares well between 3 CKD cat foods
This CKD cat food is similar in smell and taste to
Hills and Royal Canin CKD or Renal formulas but with
a thicker less moist texture. If your adding water and mixing to increase your cats fluid uptake this will not bother you as you will simply need a few more drops of water.
Protein is higher by a few percent, fat is significantly lower and carbs higher. The most important number is the phosphorus content which is .58% by dry analysis. High compared to .40% in Hills and .47% in Royal Canin CKD prescription diets.
Bottom line: Cat MUST eat so whatever you can get into them #1 Then whatever will eat that is lowest in phosphorus #2
This product is my third favorite with Hlls first and RC second... In fourth I like regular hills canned foods that range between .60-.70% phosphorus and offer a beef flavor which is my CKD cats favorite and in fact at times the only thing he will eat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by queenie This cat food is very dry
The pate was very dry, and both our kitties didn't like it, had a few small bites and that was that. Our cats are fussy but one of them usually eats anything and she did not this time.
