Questions & Answers

38 Customer Questions

Is it small pieces to chew
Answer by ChewyApr 01, 2018
Here is a picture of the kibble for reference. They are not very large.

Where is this food manufactured? And where are the ingredients sourced from?
Answer by ChewyMay 09, 2022
North American IAMS Cat Foods are produced in the US. Iams sources their ingredients for their North American plants as close to their facilities as possible. They do not purchase meat-based ingredients from China. Their vitamins and minerals often come from China, as that is often one of the only locations to source these ingredients globally, similar to human foods. Mars has an extensive Supplier Quality Assurance program, which includes audits and visits from their own associates to these suppliers.

Does iams have probiotics in there food?
Answer by ChewyNov 11, 2020
This formula has a tailored fiber blend featuring prebiotics and beet pulp to help support healthy digestion.

Is this food okay for senior cats?
Answer by ChewyJan 17, 2021
Iams ProActive Health Healthy Senior Dry Cat Food is recommended for senior cats. Both recipes are similar with the exception of the senior recipe not being formulated for weight and hairball control.

Itching in 3 cats and an allergic reaction with serious scratching for 1 cat

Noticed all of my cats scratching themselves more while using this food, and had one that we took to the vet because she was scraping her face open. Stopped feeding Iams and all of the symptoms went away. We ended up having to throw away an almost full bag because we bought 2 bags. They've always at chicken dry food so it shouldn't have been an issue with type of protein. Switched back to Purina One.

My cats love it

My older cat, who is 3, has always had a sensitive stomach. It took me 6 months to find a wet food he could eat without being sick, and wouldn't even touch dry food until I got my second cat. Even then, I struggled to find a dry food that he wouldn't vomit, and I kept finding hairballs when I came home from work, sometimes almost every day. I started them on this, and I've seen far less hairballs from him, AND he's stopped vomiting. The price is a little high for me, but I make it work just to make sure my babies are happy and healthy.

My Cats Love It - Need It

My 2 cats are indoor cats (per my promise when adopted), and they love the food. Panda is a big boy (16-18 lbs) isn't picky and eats a lot, so the fillers in the food helps out with his weight control. Tiger is smaller but has issues with eating on a schedule. He has to have food accessible when needed so he doesn't eat too much too fast and throw up. This cat food helps with his weight, also. So this cat food fulfills my cat's dietary needs pretty well. I purchase when on sale though, since the price increases by a lot over the past couple years which is disappointing.

Causes vomiting

I spent $800 on a vet bill, worried that my cat had an obstruction, kidney failure, etc. after vomiting food for 3 days. We put her on a vet recommended diet after finding out nothing was wrong, thinking that maybe she had a stomach bug, and the vomiting stopped. We put her back on the dry food after a week, and she instantly vomited again. I've used Iams food before - specifically this type and something HAS to be wrong with the package or batch we received. I hope no one else has this issue but please be careful out there!!

Iams Pink Bag

My cats like all of the Iams flavors but I do notice that my "thrower-up" cat throws up less on the pink bag digestive flavor. I have 5 cats and Pumpkin is the one who throws up the most. My deduction is that he hogs his food down as opposed to the other 4 cats who eat slower. So my thoughts on cats throwing up is that each cat has a different digestive tract but they all need to eat slower---just like humans!!!

not what my cats prefer

So I purchased 2 bags of this cat food. Bad move. I’m stuck with unused cat food. Our cats refused to eat it. Not even the stray cats outside our house. They could be really hungry and still refuse to eat it. I’m not sure what is it because I researched it before the purchase and it has all the good ingredients. Something is not there though.

Excellent Product, Excellent Service

Chewy always seems to have what I need. I had lost 2 kitties to hyperthyroidism. When another cat got sick I had her treated with the radioactive iodine therapy and she got well. I thought it might be the cheap food I was giving them. When I switched everybody over to Iams, I have not have another occurrence of hypothyroidism. I'm very grateful!

Best Purchase, Best Quality, Very Satisfied

My cat is most content with this brand. She tends to be picky when it comes to what she wants to nibble on. It keeps her satisfied when feeding time comes around. She doesn't ask for more when she helps herself to the food bowl, but the perfectly sized portions she does eat, leaves her content all day. She's a healthy weight and a happy cat with IAMS Indoor.

I'm picky what my cats eat, but the price of the foid they normally eat was just getting to expensive. Also, i needed to get a handle of my 4 yr old males weight. I was leary as I've tried Iams before and my cats wouldn't eat it. I was delighted with the price and my my cats seem to love it. I'm very pleased with this food for them and appreciate the value

incorrect order

I ordered one bag of Iams ProActive Health indoor weight & hairball care Dry Cat Food and received 2 bags! I have 2 little cats, it would take them forever to eat it all! Plus I don't have room to store all those bags. Help
