Rated 5 out of 5 by jilma He eats it for now
Super finicky cat. Had cats my entire life and this guy is high maintenance. Prior to the renal diagnosis we had to rotate a minimum of 6 foods and even then he would boycott in either a week or 6 months.
When the vet said kidney diet i knew we were in trouble. At least there are more than just one brand and a variety of protein types now as that was not always the case. I did not want to order online to test them out as you can't buy single cans and the cases are expensive mistakes if he eats it for a week and boycotts.
I have been scouring local places to try the different brands. Thank you iams for providing a smaller case so i could order without fear of a huge financial loss. So far he is eating it without issue. I hope that continues as there are other brands he liked and is now refusing. And chewy makes the process of dealing with a prescription diet seamless. It takes the same amount of time as regular food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KatKween Excellent And They Love It!
I am thrilled at this formula. All of my cats eat this and even the ones with Kidney disease lap it up. The consistency is great and to get them to eat more, I thin with just a splash of water and stir. Some of my cats don't chew so well. I have put this on auto ship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happycat2016 Good texture!
My KD cat loves this food. The texture and moisture is very good. She had been a picky eater in the past with soft food. So I thought it was going to be a strugle with the prescription food. But so far so good. She is now eager to jump on her little table during meal times ( I had to separate her during meals because the dog wants to eat the cat food )

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bifocal7 Oscar will barely eat it
If I mix this with some regular food, my KD cat will eat a little bit, but it is with immense struggle. My other healthy cat nibbles at it, but doesn't like it much either, so I think it's less to do with his low KD appetite and more to do with unappealing texture and aroma of this food.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gizmo01 Just another renal formula my cat would not eat
Have tried almost all the renal formula foods plus the added stimulants to help with my CKD cats appetite. So far she has refused to eat any of them.

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 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.
