Huge improvement in fur

I was given a sample bag of this. It made a HUGE difference in my cat's coat/fur. It now looks so much thicker and healthier. I had been using Purina Sensitive Stomach, but both my cats love this and they both seem to be doing better on it (less stomach issues, their fur looks amazing). I had avoided getting Iams in the past because I thought it was so much more expensive, but really, it's not. It was only about $2 more than the Purina I had been getting.

best cat food

The transformation of my 3 cats (2 are 2 years of age, and 1 senior 10 1/2 years of age) since feeding them IAMS has been amazing. They love it. Their fur is so healthy and shiny. Also, they have so much energy. One of my cats is fed IAMS for senior cats, and he has become a kitten again! They all look so healthy! I trust this company and hope they never change the formula. Thank you IAMS!!!

Hairloss in multiple cats

If your cat is experiencing hairloss. Theres a high chance its this food. Two of my cats were over grooming and had bald patches all over. After a vet visit we were recommended to rule out things one by one. The first thing we ruled out was this food since it was a new brand we decided to try. No itching or scratching since switching to just wet food. Decided to give the rest of the bag to my fosters since we werent 100 percent sure if it was the culprit. but now one of them is missing fur near the base of their tail as well. Cats are all up to date on flea meds. nothing has changed in the household either so its not stress. So if your cat is losing hair and you decided to try this I would start by stopping this food.

Oscar & Friends

This food leaves something to be desired. I have 3 outdoor cats that I provide shelter for during winter. Don't get me wrong, they will eat it but I must provide wet food to supplement this food most days.

Better than the cheap stuff

I bought this because it was on sale. The ingredients are better than the cheap stuff such as Friskies and nine lives. It will be a lot better for the feral cats! Always on the lookout for a good deals for food for the ferals. Thanks Chewy!

Kitties Loved it!

I feed 10 outside kitties and they loved their new food. They are all spayed and neutered, so chances of having more is slim to none but I love them all. So happy they loved the food. They are eager at feeding time to get their Chicken Iams food.

My Cats Love It

I am still in the process of slowly replacing the Meow Mix to Iams proactive health. Both of my cats, 3 years old Lynx Point and 1 year old Tan Point love it.

Not good for my mainecoon

I thought I would try this for my mainecoon as it cost less but seemed higher quality. It gives him diarrhea and the foulest smelling poop ever. No thanks.

It's good for them

Other dry foods make my 2 older cats sick. They do like it & that's a plus with picky cats. I switch off with iams dry to give them a little variety. They enjoy all iams dry.

love the food but bags aren’t sealed properly

The last two bags the seals are not done well. They open up like dried out envelope seals. Just softly pull them apart. Not sure how fresh the food is inside because of it. Iams is on sale everywhere with the larger size my guess is because of this issue. Second bag to open up on me just lifting it. Opens up from the bottom Normally it’s so well sealed you have to use scissors or knife to open bag
