10/10 would recommend this product for anyone who has cats that have a weight problem or hairball problem. I have four cats in my house and there is a lot of grooming that happens between them. One of them also has a sensitive stomach and this is the only brand she can eat without getting sick a couple hours later. We also fed this brand (not this exact product obviously) to a dog we had when I was younger. This is our trusted brand and we will search every store around us until we find it if it is out of stock at our go-to stores.

My cat has had a pretty bad issue with hair balls especially since it’s now summer time and I tried EVERYTHING from hairball medicine, to cat treats, and even a store brand hairball remedy dry food. Nothing worked until I decided to take the plunge and purchase this for him! Previous times I’ve purchased regular Iams foods he would not touch it, but surprisingly enough he LOVES this kind and has had close to no hairballs after just a month of him eating it. A little on the pricey side, but if your fur baby suffers from hair balls regularly definitely give this a try! You won’t regret it!

I feed this to all 3 cats and they love it. Pros would be that it is beneficial to their bodies, I don’t see any hairballs from any of the cats, and the cats can’t get enough of it. It is a little pricey, but I like to buy the biggest bag (3 cats go through a LOT of food). I’d definitely recommend it to other indoor cat owners!

This is the food I feed my cats every day and they absolutely love it. Plus it works so much better than Purina on both of their tummies. My girl cat was constantly throwing up and having hair balls when she was in Purina indoor food. I switched her over to this and she stopped throwing up and gained weight!

I’ve just started feeding my cats this food. I usually only give them wet food, as that is recommended. This is good for ever once in a while. It is good quality for the price. I recommend wet food, but this is for those times you run out or feel your car needs something more than wet food.

This works so well for my 4 furry friends. We normally buy this product at Walmart or Kroger and we normally get the big bag. It helps the cats with hairball prevention and they love to eat it. They get so excited when we fill their bowl up, even when their bowl is not even empty!

My cat has been on IAMS since he was a kitten. I have kept him indoors and wanted to ensure he was getting proper nutrition but not gaining excess weight. He loves this food! He is a big boy and eats all day but is still at an ideal weight! Couldn't recommend IAMS and more!

Ever since I switched to this food, the food seems to be filling my cat up faster (so she’s not eating as much food) and she seems to love it. I used to spend a lot of money on expensive “organic” food that was supposed to help maintain my cat’s weight...but it never seemed to work. I will keep feeding my fur babies this food because it’s affordable and it’s keeping them healthy!

My cat has never liked wet food believe it or not. She has always wanted dry food. We have given her a variety of dry foods, including hills prescription diet food. Before trying Iams, she had so pretty nasty gastrointestinal issues. Now her movements are less scary and she seems to be happier. This food in particular was recommended by a family friend who works at a veterinarian clinic. Glad we took her word and tried it. If you are looking for reasonably priced food, that is good quality I definitely suggest trying!

I am thinking of bringing my outdoor cat in for winter abd will need to change her food. I am concerned about hairballs and think this may be a good choice, is it worth the price?
