Are some ingredients outsourced from other countries? If so which countries?
Answer by ChewyJul 12, 2020
Iams products sold in the US are manufactured in Iams' own facilities, located in North America. Their ingredients are carefully selected for the health and well-being of the pets they feed. For this reason, Iams is committed to sourcing the ingredients from suppliers located near their manufacturing facilities when possible. Like most other pet food and human food companies, some vitamins and minerals are supplied by their trusted partners in China. Rest assured that Iams is confident in the ingredient integrity of all of the suppliers because they demonstrate the ability to consistently meet the strict and thorough standards of their own Supplier Quality Assurance program, regardless of where they are located. As a key part of this program, the suppliers undergo frequent quality audits to ensure the expectations are met.

Answer by ChewyDec 02, 2017
Iams is manufactured in the United States and subjected to more than 100 defined quality-control checks throughout the manufacturing process. Along with the use of only the highest-quality ingredients, these structured and rigorous checks ensure a high-quality, safe pet food product.

What is the target urine ph for this food? Thanks!
Answer by ChewyApr 01, 2022
The pH of all Iams' dog and cats foods is designed to be slightly acidic. However, the individual response of the pet may vary. A pH of 7 is neutral. Anything above 7 is alkaline. Anything below 7 is acidic. Iams' foods have not been tested and proven to be "therapeutic" for urinary tract problems. We recommend consulting with your veterinarian to help determine the most appropriate diet for your pet and their condition.

Excellent for Long-Haired Cats

Our Pickles is a very, very long-haired cat (possible Maine Coon or Norwegian Forest mix). As a kitten, we experienced almost daily issues with hairballs and vomiting. After moving her from Iams kitten to Hairball control, we have experienced a drastic reduction in vomiting and 'harfing' events. We use this food in conjunction with Paw Gel for hairballs and we have a health, happy cat! I (as well as my Vet) strongly recommend Iams hairball formula for any long-haired or overly frequent grooming style of cat. It really makes a difference.

Big boy loves the stuff

We have been feeding our big boy “Sunny” IAMS since we got him from the rescue last year. It is one of the foods our Vet recommends & it is what he was already being fed when we got him. He started off on the kitten food & now is on adult; we get the hairball formula for him because he is a long haired cat. We believe he loves the stuff because I’ve now started buying larger bags for him & he has a very healthy appetite (although he has eaten our other cats sensitive stomach food also). Sunny was 6 lbs. when we got him & now is a healthy, very active 14 lbs. lap kitty (when he slows down).

Great Product

Love the product. I have a Persian that cleans himself and get hairballs. I started feeding him this and the problem/Puking hairballs has just about stopped. He loves the stuff, so you can't really beat it.

Tasty- we give it a four star review. I, Cleo have a delicate problem with hairballs and this is kinder to my stomach as I don't seem to be throwing up as many hairballs (so upsetting for me)

Great high fiber diet to help with digestive issues

I have a cat that always had diarrhea - like for a year. After spending almost 1k at vet & nothing wrong with cat, my Vet told me I needed to feed my cat ID, but due to cost of the vet recommended food I decided to try a high fiber cat food. Worked like a charm - 5 months later cat has solid poop. Not sure if it helps with hairballs since that wasn't an issue I had.

Easy on the Tummy! A miracle food.

Our poor kitty, diabetic and with megacolon issues, had chronic diarrhea that I thought was the result of her illnesses. But when I purchased this food simply because it was what was available--the problem stopped! As soon as she has a different dry food or eats cat treats (Temptations), the problem returns, and then clears up again back on IAMS Hairball Care. We are never switching. I feel so badly that it was the food I was giving her that caused her serious woes.

Happy that it works

One of my cats has had issues with hairballs (so I bought hartz hairball treats, which don’t seem to work). However, since switching to iams hairball control he hasn’t had any issues for roughly 2 weeks.

Good Food For Long Haired Kitty

We buy this food for our long haired cat. He loves it. The kibbles are just the right size and shape so they are easy for him to eat. This food is gentle on his stomach. Hope that they keep selling it.

Our cats enjoy it!

We have 4 cats and all of them seem to enjoy this food. It's not been long enough yet for us to notice if there is less hairball issues.
