Rated 5 out of 5 by Pleased Find it here
This Iams product was recommended for our cat by her veterinarian. It was not available at our local pet store. It has succeeded in eliminating a problem. So glad to find it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by April23 cat didn't like it
This is the type of food my cat needs to eat but he didn't like this one. It doesn't require a prescription so was worth a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Moxi so far so good
I have two, sibling 10 year old cats with opposite problems. My little girl is constipated and sometimes cries in the litter box, and has a hard time doing her business. My boy has a sensitive tummy with the opposite problem. Since my boys surgery a few years back he has been on the dry version of this food and has done very well on it.
Up until a few months ago, neither of them would go near wet food. then one day after keeping trying, they finally turned a corner. i tried some different brands from super cheap, and available to expensive, no grain etc etc brands. Nothing seemed to be solving either situation. On a hunch it hit me this might be the solution. So far so good! It has been a few weeks and so far both cats are doing better!
I find it is very dense and dryer than typical wet food. I mix it with water, that seems to be the key. I go through one can in three days for two cats. Basically I get 6 servings out of a can, that might change.

I totally snubbed my nose on this product. My slave tried heating it, but no way was I eating the stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smokey123 Miracle Product!
My older cat has IBS and Hyperthryoid and was wasting away as he could not tolerate other foods. I tried every
prescription catfood my Vet prescribed and Smokey would NOT eat it. The over the counter foods I bought caused severe diarrhea. Smokey LOVES this food and he is gradually gaining weight and he seems like his old self. I am so grateful my Vet recommended this product! I believe it has saved my beloved kitty's life.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Vicki56 Affordable low residue can cat food.
Iams Veterinary Formula Intestinal Plus Low-Residue Canned Cat Food is priced in the affordable range compared to other similar products. I suggest you purchase a few cans to determine if your cats will eat this product. The food is quite "hard" compared to most canned cat foods. However, my cats do like this food--which was a complete surprise to me. I have not used this product long enough to state whether or not this product works well long term. Perhaps later, I can write another review with that information.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LizInChesapeakeVA Cat with colon motility issues and severe constipation
My cat is only three years old. She had to have emergency surgery last Dec 2015 for a blockage high in her colon. She has motility issues with her colon (food moves too slowly) which causes constipation or even soft stool back ups. We have been battling from last Dec till now (May 2016). Finally, we decided to try a low residue food and Iams is PERFECT. I do a combination of canned and some of the dry version. It is starting to work!!! She still must take 1/4 teaspoon of Miralax and 5mg of Cisapride twice a day but she is improving quickly. In fact, I have had to start playing with her meds to reduce them. She loves the food too. We were getting to the point where she was borderline megacolon as all other foods even with the meds were still backing her up. She just never even knew when she had to go. She would never even try.
Now, she is passing NORMAL stools and goes every other day.
I highly recommend this food if you cat is having motility issues and/or severe constipation.
She has been on this food since around May 6th. Ten days later, she is doing fantastic...now I just need to calm down!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LynnRL Cats Love It, But Too Soon to Tell Effectiveness
My Vet prescribed this food for one of my cats who has had chronic diarrhea for over a year. He said that of all the prescription foods, this is the only one that he's had measurable results with. Since it is difficult to feed my two cats different food, and since this won't hurt the other cat, I've been giving it to both (along with the dry formula). They both love it and devour it, but there has been no change in the diarrhea, except there is less of it. I plan to give this another week or two before making a judgement, though, as their systems are still getting used to it.
For a "wet food", this food is pretty hard and dry in comparison with others. We have solved that issue by adding a few tablespoons of warm water to it and mixing, making it more of the consistency of a thick gruel.
I will say that I love buying from Chewy.com, because they always offer free shipping for orders of $49 or more, and the shipping is FAST. I receive my order within 3-4 days. Not only that, but their prices are great. The dry food, for instance, was $6 more through my Vet than it is from Chewy.com!
