Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received a bag of Iams cat food from Iams. So far, my cat seems to love the taste. The transition from another flavor of Iams was very easy. Fuzzy gobbled the new food right up. I only gave a 4 star rating because I'm not sure how he will do without the furball control component that the other flavor had. He usually has a problem with hairballs so I'm curious to see if it will be an issue and I will post again further into the trial. I love the fact that Iams uses high quality ingredients that I can feel good about giving to my Fuzzy. He's the best, so he deserves the best!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Iams pro active [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My cat can be picky about her food. So the first day I only put a little in the bowl of the Iams Pro Active. She picked them out and ate them first so the next meal that is all I put in the bowl and she ate the whole bowl. So that is a great start to the switch. So now it has been over a week and that is all she is eating. She seems to enjoy it. I have notice that she is somewhat more play full lately. I have also noticed that he coat seems little more shiny. I'm going to keep on giving it to her so we will see how this works out, but for now it is great. And She is HAPPY

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite of a Stray...now our Pet We have had our only cat for 5 1/2 years now. Our vet recommended Iams on the first visit. I have experimented once with another brand. Never again. He actually tries to leave the other brand in the bowl or flings it out piece by piece. If Leo could write a review, I'm sure he would say Iams 5 Stars! I have tried, I mean HE, has tried the Hairball formula, but he identifies with the Original. The Vet office labeled Leo as American Domestic Medium Hair, but we think he favors a runt Maine Coon or Norwegian Forest. So, there's some fur. He found us as a stray. As Leo ages, we may need to revisit the Hairball Formula. But I doubt we will try another brand. It's more important to see him enjoy the food in his bowl. And that's what it's all about, being honorable stewards to our pets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long time user I have been buying Iams since the dog food looked like potting soil. I was breeder/dealer when that was the only way it was distributed. I have produced both both champion dogs and champion cats over the past 35 plus yeats. I have had cats that lived into their 20's. When I was raising and showing dogs I was a dealer until I could talk a local feed store into carrying it. Here is my current problem, you keep changing the bag size and now purchasing the original chicken cat food seems to be becoming a bigger and bigger problem. Sizes of the larger bags of dry original have changed sever times over the past few years and now the size of 16 lbs seemed totally unavailable. You are forcing me to research other brands to find a company who does provide larger size because with seven elderly cats I cannot afford your little bags. My other problem is my cats won't eat anything but dry original chicken Iams. Suffice it to say I am extremely disappointed in your current direction. I cannot tell you how many people I have started on your dog and cat products. A DISSAPOINTED ANGRY CUSTOMER Here

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cat approved [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My cat is a picky eater. I tend to want to try new brands with her so I was happy when Iams sent a free bag to try. I have never tried any Iams brand before. The bag sat for a couple days unopened as I had just purchased a new bag of her food. She tore the bag open with food already in her bowl of her other brand. I was worried she would get sick but did not. She seems to enjoy this food more than other dry foods. I also like that I can get Iams at stores other than pet stores which saves time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my cat! My sweet kitty Dori was getting sick all the time. She had urinary tract infections, a blood infection, etc. She lost over a third of her body weight. After being on a special prescribed diet and improving her health some, we put her on this food in the hopes that she would continue improving and that it would strengthen her immunity. I'm happy to say she has not been sick in over a year. She gained all her weight back. She's energetic and playful again! I've got my sweet girl back and I truly believe that this food is keeping her well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My cats love this [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I opened the bag and it had a very strong smell, but once I put it in my cats dish, they went right for it. I love it is not made with lots of artificial colors. I always look at the ingredients and make sure chicken is the first ingredient, which it was. I also like that it doesn't have artificial coloring, where each piece is a different color. It is the right size for my cats, they seemed to adjust to it right away. I had a dish of this and one of their old food, either they were tired of the old or they really liked the new because the Iams is what they ate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The dry cat food bag opening/closure is awkward. We are currently feeding a stray cat in our neighborhood your high quality food (we are considering adopting her), and she loves your product. She doesn't care that the bag opening/closure is awkward, but we, her three adult caregivers, think you need to redesign the bag because it is difficult to make a V to ensure all the pieces flow out instead of scattering. Once the bag is opened we fold it several times and use a clip to keep it fresh. We will continue to purchase your quality food but please consider my suggestion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gizmo Approved.. So Far.. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Gizmo is the pickiest cat you will ever meet! There is only one brand of treats he will eat and it's usually hit or miss whether he will like a different brand of food or not. I decided to first start by just putting a few pieces of Iams on the floor to see if he would eat it or turn his nose up to it. To my surprise he gobbled it down! He loved it! I am going to try to eventually alternate this food with his current food to give him more variety. I do wish this food helped with hair balls. His current food has that and it helps a lot considering he has lots of fur. That would be my only concern with the Iams at the moment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Iams Is Acceptable [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After receiving our bag of Iams Proactive Health Adult Original with Chicken I slowly transitioned our cat, Spooky, to the new food as recommended. Spooky is a very picky cat and even though I slowly transitioned her she still refused to eat the new food and picked out her old food. She only ate the Iams when it was the only food in her bowl. But now that Iams is the only thing she receives she seems to like it alright. I have noticed that Spooky doesn't eat Iams as quickly as her old food. I gave it a three star rating because while Spooky seems to eat it alright now she doesn't seem to like it as much as her old cat food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from feedingmrfinicky [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I switched my cat's dry food to Iams last week when I received my bag from Iams & he actually was very receptive, which was a bit of a surprise since he tends to be on the finicky side. The dry morsels are just the right side for an adult cat & the smell is minimal which is an added plus. Iams pet food is well-known & I believe they use less filler & more quality ingredients which is what a pet owner should prefer to give their cat to contribute to the health & longevity of their precious feline/child. I will continue to use Iams regularly for my cat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I am a Kittys [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I investigated this product to see its pros & cons for my 4 legged family. I was a little nrevous with some information i found, however i found the pros more influential. The only down fall i have with Iams is the price. I have 6 cats, so cost is something i am cocerned with. I did make the switch because i liked changes that i saw in my friends. I have noticed my cats are begging less for food, there is more action in my house and there coats are softer and shinier. They are more active and ready to face their day. Here is Edmund relaxing with one of his bags of food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kitty Cat's delight [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was skeptical to use the Iams brand but thought I would give it a try. I was surprised to received a large bag in of the cat food in the mail from Iams. I started feeding my cat of new food right away and he loved it. He is starting to get older and I worry about the health benefits he is receiving from his food but reading the label, it seems like a great solution to my concerns. My cat, Poi, can be a picky eater but he went right for it and always eats his whole bowl of food. I am definitely going to recommend the product to my fellow cat lovers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alexis Loves Her Iams [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Alexis is a very picky eater and she also suffers from allergies. She could not wait to dig into her first bowl of Iams. It felt good to be able to feed Alexis a healthy product that does not break the bank. The vet carries special food for her type of cat but it costs a fortune. Shhh Alexis doesn't like the taste of the vet food very much while we dislike the price. She seemed to enjoy every piece of her dry food after I gave the Iams to her. Like I said, she's a picky eater, but there was only about three pieces of food left in her bowl that night.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Iams Healthy Weight for feline friends :) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Healthy Weight dry food from Iams was something that my picky feline babygirl LOVES to eat fro dinner now. She left her wet food ( holy grail for my kitty ) to move on to this DRY food. Ia m amazed... but she loves it and I am so glad since it is something that will help her get her normal weight back on track. I have a senior kitty... and she is very picky in all ways and all things... especially when it comes to food. She also has hypothyroidism so she loves to constantly eat but unfortunately does not gain any weight or absorb the nutrients. This food will give her a better chance at getting back to a healthy weight again!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cats love it My cats enjoy it. We tried a few grain free options when there was as shortage of Iams Digestive Care on the shelf but that didn't work very well .... the hairballs and throw up was too much. We even tried some hairball formulas from other brands and that didn't work very well (i.e. the cats were not too happy with the kibble). So we decided to try the Iams Original with Chicken. It has been awhile since we used it....and it has settled their stomachs. They seem happier at meal time. They also get Iams in the can (pate' style) each day. We tried to go back to Digestive Care, but the kibble was a different shape and they didn't take to it like before. This formula they really like and they are doing great. Thanks Iams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Diets Make Beautiful Kitties I used to purchase a few different cat foods for our cats, depending what was on sale, what I had a coupon for, and what I could get cheapest...only selecting from what I felt was top brand cat food (basically all the cat foods you will see Iams list on their comparison list). I thought they were all the same. Then, my daughter decided she wanted to shave our midlength coat, black bombay cat. This gave me an idea to see if we could visually see a difference if we stuck with solely Iams cat food while she regrew her hair. As her coat regrew, we noticed a difference quickly. She's always been a gorgeous cat, but now her coat is so glossy and even more silky. Her trouble with hairballs also cut down tremendously from many times a week to rarely ever, and her hair has been fully grown back to its original length for at least a year. I have refused to buy any other brand since, not only for the cats, but for our dog as well. If it makes that much of a difference in their coats, I can only imagine the difference it makes on their entire bodies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My cats enjoyed their IAMS food [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received the IAMS original chicken-flavored dry food for adult cats. My family has three cats, and their regular diet consists of 1/2 can wet food daily, plus as much dry food as they need. I set out a large bowl of the IAMS every day for a week. Two of my cats would go for the dry food even after finishing their wet canned food. One cat would eat the IAMS, but not as enthusiastically. She is a picky girl though and I don't think she liked changing her diet to a different food. This is a good, balanced food for my cats and I would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sofie Grace Loves this Cat food!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My old girl Sofie Grace is the pickiest cat in the world. I have been going round for round with her over several different cat foods. Well We got the Iams® ProActive Health™ Adult Original chicken formula from Iams to try and I was skeptical she jumped right in and started eating! She beggs us for more food every time her dish is empty!! I am so impressed that there is a cat food out there that my cat will actually eat with gusto and not leave it in her dish for days only for us to throw away!!! Thank You Iams and Bzzfeed for this great product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Kitties eat Iams! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Feeding my two kitties the Iams that I received via Bzzagent -- To start, impressed with the amount they provided as a sample. Generally they give you a small bag, not enough to get a real impression if they like it or not, or if it makes a difference in your pet. Iams and bzzagent provied a BIG bag. SO thank you! -- Secondly , I couldnt even open the bag without getting a ton of meow's and they tried to bombard me when i opened it.. they NEVER do that. As soon as I placed it in their bowls, they scarfed it up. Again, never do that with their old food. I have since replaced my old cat food with Iam's and my kitties have never been happier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My kitties loved the switch [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After receiving the Iams Proactiv Health Adult Original with Chicken, I slowly worked it into my cats diets and they just couldn't get enough of it. I usually keep it stored in a storage closet by the front door and one evening, my cat pulled open the door and rip a huge hole in the bag and ate to her hearts content. I could not get over how excited my cats were for feeding time. I absolutely love the Iams brand and look forward to a long term relationship with them. I love that I am providing them with all the essential nutrients they need!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZINGLY GREAT! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When I received the bad of Iams cat food and opened the box my cats went CRAZY! They were all over me meowing, and sniffing, and climbing up to see what the great smell was. After I opened the bag I let them sniff the contents inside and they were going insane. As soon as I filled their dishes up they devoured the food! I have never seen them eat so fast. The switch to Iams has made it's way to my home! We are all in love with Iams and the price is unbeatable, the way my cats go nuts over it shows me that this is what they want to be eating!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picky Kitty Approves [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been feeding my cat Sophia Iams Proactive Health Adult Original with Chicken for a little bit over a month now. At first I was scared she wouldn't eat it concedering she can be quite picky. Boy, was I wrong. For the first few days I mixed her old for with Iams as directed. On the fifth day I gave her a serving of just Iams. She devoured it. Sophia appears to have more energy and a shinier coat. She enjoys Iams Proactive Health Adult with Chicken and I feel better knowing that I am feeding her a more nutritious and healthy food. I will definitely be purchasing another bag after this one runs out. Thank you Bzzagent for giving Sophia and I the opportunity to experience Iams!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The new favorite [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My cat has been eating the same cat food for a while now because she's very picky and doesn't usually like to try new flavors. When this Iams cat food arrived, I mixed a small amount with her old food so she could ease into the new food. She ate a few pieces and then continued finding the rest of the Iams pieces in her bowl and ate the rest while leaving her old food for later. I was surprised. She definitely favored the Iams to her old food. I plan to share this story with my friends and family and continue to give my cat her new favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ms. T.Moore [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I decided to switch from my usual brand of boring cat food. When I switched from my boring brand to Iams Proactive Health Adult Original with Chicken I didn't expect my finicky Cat to go crazy of his new food!Well...he went crazy over his new and delectable food! He even knocked the bag down to try and indulge in more than one meal! I felt good about giving him this new food because Iams is a great trustworthy brand. The plus side of this food is it's made with high quality protein and has the nutrients and antioxidants my Kitty needs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cat loves IAMS [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My cat is a very picky cat. He hardly tries anything new and will refuse to eat if he doesn't like something (even if he seems to be hungry). He in fact is so picky that he refuses to drink water out of a bowl. The water needs to be coming fresh from the faucet of our kitchen sink. When I poured him bowl of IAMS he ate if all up. I was so surprised. I was not expecting him to even touch it. He was very happy and I have been feeding him IAMS as his dry food ever since. He seems healthy, energetic, and very happy with his IAMS.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Iams is helping our cats already! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Our two cats have a tendency to overeat until they make themselves sick (one in particular does it all the time) however so far with the Iams cat food, they have not gotten ill at all, and we've been using this sample for 4 days thus far. I am really pleased with how they are feeling better and that they seem to be more playful as well. I am seriously considering switching to Iams if this trend continues. I am only giving it 4 stars at the moment, because I want to see how well the cats do throughout the rest of the bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Kitty loves Iams [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When I got the free cat food from IAMS I wasn't sure how my cat would react . I was very pleased with my cats response to it. She loved it and ate it up and sat by her bowel like she was already for more. I did go to the store and see how much it was and it wasn't more than my regular brand and this one was so much more healthier .After my cat enjoying IAMS so much. I will be switching her to this cat food. If your wanting to try another brand I would recommend you try this product your cat will love you for the switch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Meeeeooow! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I usually roll my eyes at the high-priced "quality" pet foods but, ever since Tucker, Olifur, and Parker made the switch, I roll no more! The royal triumvirate really took a liking to this food right away. We followed a progressive path until total switcheroo. At no point did I see change in eating or litter pan habits. Iams is definitely a trusted name, and this product makes claims that our kitts will be healthier. The only reason to pick something else is cost, right? I feel the same way. After Iams gave the boys and I a bag to try for free, and seeing their pleasure, the small increase is negligible. I recommend you try this meow.
