These guideline amounts are a starting point and your cat may need more food depending upon age, activity and temperament.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cats love it I started out with the kitten food then switched to this and I mix with another brand. My Nacho and Onyx love this, I have lost cats to the Purina poisoning of my babies in the past so I am very picky about what I feed my babies. I have done a lot of research and trust IAMS.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cats won’t eat new formula My seven cats hate this product now. They ate it eagerly before it changed. I don’t understand why you changed the formula on this product, and why you don’t respond to customers questions about why it was changed. Don’t tell me to ask for a refund, I need to know what brand to switch to so that my cats will eat it

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why change a good thing?? Just bought my Miss Kitty her Iams Hairball control cat food that she's been eating her entire 5yrs of adult life noticed her vomiting everywhere and a messy cat litter box! Looked at packaging to see if it's changed the formula and realized that they added Salmon!! She's allergic to ALL FISH PRODUCTS!! Now I'm out a 7lb bag of dry cat food and have a VERY SICK KITTY!! Why mess with a good thing? I have exhausted all efforts to find an old package made with straight chicken!?!? Sadly Iams was the only dry cat food she would touch now she won't go near it and if she does she scatters it all over the floor out of her bowl. Walmart will let me return it because it's been opened either! Why would you change the formula without at least printing it on the packaging like "CAUTION NEW FORMULA" or "THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS FISH" Thank for the extra messes all over my brand new carpet Iams!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Puking Cat I bought this product a couple weeks ago to feed to my medium hair cat. She’s never picky about food and never throws up. But this food made her start throwing up almost daily after about two days. I had to stop feeding it to her and threw away the basically full bag and switched back to another food. Now she’s fine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from New formula, sick kitty I’ve been feeding this to my long-haired boy for years as it was the absolute best thing for hairballs and the only thing we found that didn’t trigger allergies. Went from daily hairballs to MAYBE once every 2 months. Something has changed. He now vomits multiple times daily causing obvious weight loss, and something in the formula has triggered his skin allergies. He has scratched himself raw and is absolutely covered in scabs and bald spots. I wish we would’ve known about the change because I’ve been unknowingly making my cat very sick.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No, just no. My cat thrived on your old chicken formula. Loved it. We are luckier than some: he will eventually eat the new stuff, but very unenthusiastically. He is not happy. These are cats we are talking about, not dogs. They are fussy and opinionated and know how to make their displeasure known. Please bring the old stuff back. Surely getting review after review like this should cause you to reconsider.You may have a 100% satisfaction guarantee, but I assure you that a great many of your long time customers are NOT at all satisfied and getting money back won't fix this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad switch I have been buying the Hairball chicken for years my cats love it I've had no problems. Now it's chicken and salmon the formulas has changed and all my cats puke. They have went from cornmeal and corn grits to whole ground grain corn and corn gluten meal. I've done my research on the whole corn thing. I don't understand why you would change something that's not broken. You now have lost a customer. And now the bag says imported by Mars Foods Malaysia. Compare bags people.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PLEASE bring back Chicken only IAMS hairball I have been buying this product since it was first launched under the Eukanuba brand. The new formula upsets their stomachs, and they have even thrown it up. I donated an open bag, and they returned it to me saying it didn't agree with their cats.I can't even count how many people I recommended the chicken only hairball product. I have searched inventory in many stores. One store told me I was not the only customer searching for chicken only. I tried 3 other types of IAMS dry but the cats don't like them.It is sad after all these years I am going to have to try another brand of hairball dry. Note: the plastic packaging doesn't allow for resealing, I had to buy new bins to store it, and we do not need more plastic in our environment.
