Fattening but tasty treat

My cat cannot get enough of this food – so it must taste great.

With this as her regular diet, she gained 3lbs in a year; my vet said this is a fattening food. I still give her individual pieces of kibble as “treats” but I feed her Blue Buffalo weight control now.

Update: She got her first hairball

I have been feeding my cat all sorts of cat food. She has long fur and hasn’t had any hairballs. If she gets hairballs on Iams Proactive hairball formula, I would definitely update this review.

This food is different from any cat food I’ve ever bought because the kibble is shaped like tiny balls. Up until now, my cat has eaten foods shaped like starfish or “Y” and “X.” She doesn’t seem to mind the shape, though.

My main beef with cat food is some of them smell so horribly bad (dead fish). This one is fine. That’s what I buy for — that and price. If it does what it says, make my cat lose weight and controls hairballs, I will be a happy cat owner.

Will come back in the future to update.


UPDATE: Well, this formula must not work. After being on it for two months, my cat suffered her first hairball.

She tolerates this food well!

I have a 5 yr old cat that has a sensitive stomach so I saw a small bag of this at the store today and picked it up for $3.50 to try out. Let me tell you, she absolutely LOVES this food! She has not thrown up yet after eating it(as she has with previous brands) so if all goes well this is her new food, excellent!! 😀

As advertised! Great option vs. retail stores

Glad to see Amazon has so many products and suppliers. It is nice to have these products delivered right to the house. Getting ready to order some more for the (3) additional mouths to feed in the house!

Great product

Our cats have traditionally lived between 18-22 years. We have been feeding them Iams forever. They enjoy the food and their waste is not overly stinky or big.

Love IAMS!!

With 5 cats I need to buy cat food in bulk!! Having it delievered to the door is a absolute must, so I love the delivery of Amazon. Just switched cats to this food – females are weight ok but the males seem to eat too much so hope this will keep them trimmer. Have all long haired cats – and who likes hariballs coming up?? Not me. Have one cat show has been on this for year – and have not had hairball #1 out of her. Definitely recommend buying from Amazon – aLOT chaeper than any other place I have found.

Good brand, good size bags

When my husband first got our cat a few years ago, he started feeding her cheaper cat food. She threw up one day all over the carpet, and it was really hard to get the “red” stains out from the color in the cat food. He then switched her to Iams, and now on the rare occasion she has those problems, the carpet isn’t stained like it was before. Iams is a little more expensive than other brands, but it’s definitely worth it. Your cat doesn’t cost that much money to keep anyway, so you might as well feed them better quality food.

I defintely recommend buying this product from Amazon (the pack of 8 2-lb. bags). You pay more up front, but it averages out to about the same, or maybe even a little less, as buying the 4 pound bags from the local stores. Plus, your cat gets “fresher” food more often, which is especially good if you only have one cat and don’t go through the bag as fast. Yes, our cat is a little spoiled.

My cats love the tuna flavored IAMS.

I am no longer able to find original IAMS with tuna in my grocery store and I can only buy it online. My cats love it. I’m not sure why the stores only stock IAMS with Chicken. I wish the manufacturer would continue making tuna available. My 14 year old cat has eaten it exclusively for most of her life and turns her nose up at most other flavors.

Suitable for all types of cats

I had a cat with renal failure who had 1 kidney removed several years ago. The doctor recommended the KD dry for her post-surgery. She live nearly 9 years on one kidney and this food alone! I now have three rescued cats of diverse backgrounds, including 1 longhair. They all eat the Iams dry food at will, with no portion control. None are overweight and though the longhair gets frequent hairballs, that is not a result of the food, but rather how frequently I brush him. More brushing = less hairballs.

Cats with digestive problems

This has been the only food we have found for our cat that he can digest easily. We have tried product after product but with this it stay down for him. We have 4 other cats and they all like this food too. Great price per pound when you compare it to the store price.

GREAT DEAL, CONVENIENT TOO. Much cheaper than WalMart and I don’t need to lug it home, it appears on my doorstep. Cats hack up fewer hair balls and instead of adding petroleum products (ie-vaseline) like most HAIRBALL formulas, which causes diarrhea and blocks vitamin absorption, this one has probiotics, which make the digestive tract work better, thus eliminating most of the hairball problem in a healthy way. (Nothing can prevent 100% of hairball hacking, it’s just something all cats do once in awhile.) A great deal on a great product, plus free shipping when you order over a certain amount.—Coos Bay Sandra

For The Cat

My cat has never turned up his nose at this product. He always has his choice at meal time and he eats both the chicken and this product without fail.

Cat Had Bad Reaction

My sister has been feeding our cat Zoe this product for a few months now, recently she started to get a few cysts on her body, one on her face which caused the hair to fall out in that area. when we noticed this occurring we took her to the vet asap. The vet asked what type of food we feed her and my sister informed that we use Iams Weight Control (she has trouble loosing weight) The Vet told us that she has had a few animals come in lately with the SAME problem and EATING the same food!!!! we were told to stop feeding her Iams and use an all natural cat food with only half a cup of food in her bowl each day.. I DO NOT RECOMMEND! or your pet too can start getting cysts on their body.. no good

Works for multi-cat families (Chicken Flavor)

If you have a multi-cat family and are struggling to find common ground to minimize digestion disturbances amongst all of them, this is a good bet. My cats don’t *love* this food, but they all tolerate it well and don’t run away from it immediately after I pour it.

Amazon’s prices are unbeatable too, even for the small (2lb bags). While it seems weird to get so many small bags, my cats appreciate it because the these bags don’t reseal well, so with smaller bags, the food is fresher in general.

As mentioned in the subject, this only applies to the Chicken flavor, my cats don’t care for the others.

Why Can’t We Get TUNA Proactive Health Dry Cat Food

IAMS Original with Tuna Proactive Health Dry Cat Food has been a wonderful food for our 4 yr old female Manx. Suddenly after years of good health & a beautiful coat we have to find something else she likes besides occasional raw fish or shrimp. She will not eat IAMS salmon & brown rice, barely will touch the Chicken Proactive Health. I’ve finally backed down to Purina Tuna & Fish but I know it is not as healthy as IAMS. Why is the IAMS Tuna suddenly not available in HEBs, WalMarts, K-Mart, Feed Stores nor on-line?
