Healthy Weight

Healthy Weight

Protein is a key ingredient in IAMS cat food recipes. IAMS is made with high-quality protein to help your cat maintain strong, lean muscles. Animal-based proteins like chicken, beef and salmon can help your cat maintain healthy muscle structure and support an ideal weight. And they naturally provide all of the amino acids that cats need to thrive.

Playfulness and Energy

IAMS delivers a customized mix of protein and carbs to keep your cat energized and ready for pouncing and playing. As carnivores, cats need a diet that's high in animal proteins with the ideal ratio of protein to carbohydrates to maintain a healthy energy level. Cats on an IAMS diet are getting essential amino acids, including taurine, plus the amount of carbs they need for hunting feathery toys.

Playfulness and Energy
Healthy Digestion

Healthy Digestion

Getting the right amount and type of fiber is important for your cat's digestive health. IAMS uses a proprietary fiber blend that includes prebiotics and beet pulp. Prebiotics feed the good bacteria in the gut, and beet pulp is a great fiber source that promotes a healthy digestive tract. Every IAMS recipe is tailored to your cat's nutritional needs with the proper level and right kind of fiber for healthy digestion.

  • My colony cats love Iams

    By on

    I have tried a few times to switch my 2 girls to eating healthier brands but they do not care for them. Iams has a very prominent savory, salty smell to their food which they like. Even the other 2 colony cats my sister-in-law feeds, love Iams and will steal my girls food instead of eating their own (Meow Mix). It is a bit pricey without a sale/discount since it does not have the best ingredients so I try to stock up. I usually mix this with a healthy wet cat food to balance it out.

  • Buuu-uu-urp!

    By on

    Oh! Scuze me <urp!> Sometimes when I eat fast, I get the "urps." I like Iams! So does my adopted brother, Boomer. Thing of it is...mommy bought us FIVE bags of food (she said something about the prices being the best she'd ever seen, so that's why she bought so many bags!), and...well...we just can't EAT them that fast! Hmmm...maybe that's why I have the "urps"! Anyway, I mentioned how much we both like Iams and she said we could have that bag next IF we slowed down our eating a bit (Boomer erps sometimes, too), so we both promised we would. I figure another 2 days of what's in the 'Munchies' jar and we're good to go with Iams! All three of us are just sooo-oo happy!

  • This food is fit for a prince

    By on

    My Maine Coon Fred was a meow mix cat, ride or die. That is, until he finally gave in after a long 15 minutes of starvation, and tried Iams. He occasionally stares longingly at the bag, I'm unsure of if it's his love for the food or if he is having a love affair with the cat model. Either way, 5 stars.

  • The best food

    By on

    My cat has been on this food for a couple of years now and it's great. It's the best for controlling hair balls and she loves it! And the extra plus you don't need to carry the bag home, you can get it delivered!! Big plus all around.

  • Horrible poop smell

    By on

    I recently purchased this Iams cat food to replace his previous food. The reason I replaced his old food coz it caused him pooping a lot and pretty smell badly. I had a high expectation on Iams coz of the good reviews. I dunno why but he's been eating Iams for almost a month and when he's pooping, I have to open all of the windows coz it smells so badly, worse than his old food. Very disappointing, so now I'll have to find a new food for him and hopefully it will reduce or eliminate the bad smell from his poop.

  • My cats love this

    By on

    I am using about 3-4 different dry cat foods, all that my cats have liked. Since I found the Iams, that is all they want or eat. Now i have bags of dry food that when i put some out, they won't touch it. I hope it is good for them because they sure like it!

    My fur baby is almost 18 years old and has eaten nothing but Iams. Through the years it's changed from Kitty food to Adult food to older cat food but always Iams.

  • Aims and Chewy

    By on

    I order Iams hairball formula because it really works great, I have 8 cats, all long hair, I promise, it WORKS, lol. It's even good to mix in with your regular cat food, half n half. You'll see a difference in your cats overall HEALTH, and the hairballs getting crouched up will all but disappear. I haven't seen my cats hacking one up since I started using IAMS. Also, Chewy is AWESOME. they deliver promptly and you never have to worry, you just know the delivery will be there.

  • Anti Hairballs

    I love this Iams dry hairball cat food. I have two cats, one inside/outside and one outside cat. They both have been throwing up hairballs a lot more lately, so I decided to try the hairball cat food. I love it! It really works!
