My tiger cat was grooming himself constantly and pulling out his fur. I was worried so I went online and read that the cat food you feed your cat can cause them to do this because they are not getting the nutrients they need so their coat does not feel clean. I am a low income family so I was buying a very cheap cat food and I thought I was taking good care of my family pet. I remembered my mom as a child buying iams for our cats because it causes the urine to smell better in the box. So even though it was a higher price point I tried this indoor formula. Six weeks on this brand of food my cat now only grooms himself once a day and his coat looks amazing. He is no longer pulling out fur. He is sleeping better, he has more energy and he looks great. I know the higher price point can be scary for people with my income but it is worth every penny I promise you!!
I used to buy a cheaper brand of cat food and one of my cats was over weight and the other periodically had fur balls . About a month ago I switched to Iams indoor, hairball and weight control. Since then my over weight cat has lost weight and the other one has had no problem with fur balls. Thank you.
One of my cats has lost many of her teeth and the smaller kibbles are easier for her to eat. They both love it (not as much as tuna). I have tried others and ended up donating them. We still have an occasional hairball but much less than before. My daughter started feeding it to her cats, too. It's their favorite
My cat has issues with itching, no fleas or other items my vet has checked her for. I was told she was allergic to grain. so I put her on some other GOOD expensive cat food that is advertized all the time. I thought I was doing good for her. Then this vomit was happening and then I had to buy Hairball control medicine and then it all adds up like a snow ball running down the hill. My Daughter told me how her cat is doing and took me to the store. We went looked everything over and still came back to Iams ProActive Health and even tho my cat is not 1-6 years old we decided to use that age to see if it would restore her minerals. it's been a week and I tell you the difference in her is remarkable. My Poly Toe flyer is back. hopping up and down the couch and chairs and running around without throwing up. That is really the key. No vomit but that is not why I am writing about that. What I need to tell you is. She was lacking minerals for her coat - always itching, which has stopped in the middle of the night. She has started sleeping on ME. I'm her cat pile now. and when it comes time to eat she is an hour ahead begging already when before it was a lonely time for me. For her, she eat EVERY bit laying in and around her dish. My Shy little kitty has been brought back to kitty playtime and kitty nap piles and she is running again without vomit breaks. Thank You so much for bringing my little girl back to me, which makes me feel smiles on her face and mine. ReGina
I have a domestic short hair and a domestic long hair. With any other food they cough up hairballs at least once a week but while they've been on this food or the regular Iams hairball control they've had exactly zero hairballs. They've also been indoor cats their entire life and this food or the regular Iams weight control seem to do the best at keeping them at a healthy weight. They can have however much they want and it still keeps them healthy.
This food is the best of both worlds and I will never use another one unless I don't have a choice. I would recommend this to everyone.
I've tried several different so-called remedies for my indoor, spayed kitty's weight problem. Her skin is very dry and she is too fat to groom herself.
Saw this advertised on TV, bought it 8 days ago, started her on it...She is a very finicky eater but she guzzled this down. I can already see a difference. Her coat seems sleeker and her belly is not so low to the ground.
She has a long way to go but she's not even nagging me to feed her 24/7. She has the recommended amount and she seems satisfied.
I think she'll be at a much healthier weight in a few months on this food. I am hoping the weight loss will keep her with me longer.
Glad I bought it!
My cats are very picky. I expected this transition to a new cat food to be difficult to say the least. I thought they MIGHT try the food but was not prepared for what happened next. They LOVED the food . At first, I couldn't believe how much they were eating and I thought the dogs might be helping themselves to the food also. I carefully watched the food and their eating habits and they genuinely LOVED the taste and ate it up. After being on the food for a few weeks I received my next unexpected surprise. I was petting the cats and their fur felt significantly different. It was softer and thicker than ever. This cat food was making a significant difference in their overall health and they love the taste. I will definitely be stocking up on this food once I run out. Thank YOu IAMS !!
