Rated 5 out of 5 by from Iams In Love We have 4 cats and 3 have sensitive stomachs. We slowly tried different food and had a better success rate with Iams. However, trying to find a bag bigger than 13 pounds is ridiculous. 4 cats and 13 pounds means constant runs to the store. The other Iams makes them still puke. We may end up just going with Fromms due to the lack of availability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good health I've tried numerous cat foods as my cats kept throwing it up no matter what I bought. Even the vet was stumped. I saw the Iams proactive health cat food 84% protein chicken and salmon receipe and it was on sale for $3 so I thought I'd try it.. I've now been using it over a month and neither cat has thrown it up. I'll continue to use this if you keep making it.Thankyou very much. Jeanne

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Receipe I had been feeding my cat several different, less known brands and noticed she would begin to shed hair really bad. I think she might have been allergic. But, once I began feeding her this specific Iams blend, she has gotten her spunk back! No more shedding and no more food allergies. Her energy level is through the roof. Thanks Iams!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It WAS a great food. I have 3 cats who all have a sensitive stomach. this food worked wonders on them keeping the vomit down to minimal. Now it seems it has been discontinued as no store within 100 miles carries it. What happened? Petco, petsmart, walmart.... I'm at a loss here.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t buy I bought 2 bags of this food at 2 different stores and times and both both bags smelled terrible (salty plastic kind of) and my cats wouldn’t eat it. I’ve been buying Iams cat food for over 15 years and I’ve always been very satisfied until now. My cats aren’t picky eaters and have never turned anything down until this food.
