With the new "Improved Taste" my cats now hate it!
1 Star Review   By Nerfball6 on PETCO - Jul 22, 2011   

For a couple years now my cats have eaten IAMS Proactive Health Indoor Weight and Hairball Control pet food and really seemed to enjoy it. And it helped with their weight and hairballs. Unfortunately since IAMS changed the formula, with the bags now marked improved Taste, neither of my cats will touch the stuff. They just sniff it and walk away...and come begging me for food. This isn't the way I want them to stay trim. I guess it's time to move on and find a new food. I hate it when companies screw up a good thing!!

My Cat's Love
5 Star Review   By cjwinger on PETCO - Apr 2, 2011   

No matter what I try to give my cat Maddie to eat, she ALWAYS wants her Iam's. I have even recently given her canned food but she wants her choice! I love that she loves it and it loves her back. ALSO, this was my first time shopping PETCO.com and I am so happy I gave them a try. Selection, prices and shipping were great and the delivery was fast! I was actually shocked!

Keeping my cat "regular"
5 Star Review   By purrrplej on PETCO - Nov 14, 2010   

My older cat has problems with hair getting stuck in the digestive tract, causing constipation. I decided to try mixing in the Iams hairball/weight control food in with his other food, and it seems to be helping. (He can also use the weight control benefit!) He has put on weight while on the food, but I think it's because he was getting too many treats. Maybe he'd be even tubbier if I didn't have him on the Iams!

The perfect food for all 4 of our cats
5 Star Review   By Jo on PETCO - May 3, 2010   

We have 4 indoor cats, ages 1, 3, 4, and 6. Iams has always been the one brand that all 4 of our cats do well on. Our 3-year-old black Maine Coon used to have problems with hair balls since she has such a long, thick coat, but this food has really helped to minimize that problem a great deal. Now, she almost never coughs up hairballs anymore. All of our cats have great energy levels, healthy weights, normal stools, and soft and shiny coats on Iams. We won't be changing foods anytime soon!

My cats enjoy it
4 Star Review   By Kittyperson on PETCO - Jan 18, 2010   

This is what it says. It is good food that my vet does not compain about. I have a fat short hair cat that it looks like it lost a few pounds. Not alot, but a few. I also have a long hair cat that I often see her swallow clumps of fur while she is grooming herself. I have not had any hairballs from her since I started feeding them this food.

Great food, need bigger bags!
4 Star Review   By Libbsterb on PETCO - Oct 14, 2009   

My cats love this food! They are both big guys (13 and 15lbs normal weight) and it is hard to keep them from over eating. We have had quite a lot of luck with this food. They also love it, going crazy when my husband or I head into the laundry room to feed them. Our younger (and bigger) of the two also has a medium coat and sensitive stomach. With this food the only way it bothers him is if we manage to let him over eat. Only problem I have is, they are big cats, and they go through the 8lb bag every three or four weeks. I have seen 20lb bags at other stores, and I wish Petco would carry that size too!

Hairball Help
5 Star Review   By kaykwolf on PETCO - Aug 23, 2009   

This really is a great choice for your indoor cat. Mine was constantly throwing up hairballs but after I put her on this it has subsided a lot. She is also overweight and haven't seen much change in that but hopefully will start seeing that soon. She looks forward to being fed now because she seems to really like the food.

Great product!
5 Star Review   By kater16123 on PETCO - May 11, 2009   

It's not easy to find food for my cats that is healthy and appealing to them. I have found it in this product, and it comes with a bonus. The litter box has almost no odor at all, which is beneficial with apartment living. Also, there are virtually no hairballs. I am more than willing to pay a bit more for a brand that serves my animals well.

Why we like it
5 Star Review   By PrettyKittyO on PETCO - Mar 6, 2009   

My cat has short hair and never any hairballs, but a VERY sensitive digestive system. Every other food I've put her on has made her barf, every day. This is the only one she doesn't throw up, and it also seems to keep her healthy and happy.

great stuff!
5 Star Review   By rhendricks04 on PETCO - Nov 28, 2008   

I started feeding this to my cat a few weeks ago. She has long hair so has always had problems with hairballs but lately she has also developed a sensitive stomach. She also has gain some weight over time so I thought that this would be a good try for her. Since I started feeding her this, she eats less, hasn't gotten thrown up her food like she did with other brands I tried, hasn't had any hairball problems and I think she is finally started to loose some of her weight. Also, she used to stay hidden and didn't come out much and wasn't very active and from the day she started eating this food she started feeling better and is more active and sociable. I would defiantly recommend to anyone.

The Very Best Food
5 Star Review   By kbaby207 on PETCO - Jul 2, 2008   

Cicle (Icicle w/o I) loves this food. She is so finicky and won't eat most things you give her, but she loves this food. Iams Indoor & Greenies are all she eats :) If your cat(s) is finicky, try her on this!

Save Your Rugs!
5 Star Review   By Moink on PETCO - Apr 4, 2008   

I've got 2 cats- 1 stocky and able to eat anything, and 1 slim with a sensitive digestion and VERY prone to those pesky hairballs. This food suits them both, and has almost eliminated the hairball problem. As a matter of fact, the slim sensitive guy is now king of the food dish, leaving just enough for my portly princess. After searching through MANY types of food over the years, this one has definitely become our standby over the last year-and-a-half.

Not So Much
3 Star Review   By IrishFeline317 on PETCO - Mar 16, 2008   

My cats (I have 3) are not particularly fond of this product. They eat it but not very enthusiastically or willingly. They much prefer moist food over dry and will eat this (and any other dry formula) only if nothing else (meaning any moist food) is available.

My Cat Loves this Cat food!!!
5 Star Review   By CamCAT on PETCO - Feb 6, 2008   

3 weeks ago I changed may cat's food to some other Brand that an Employee recommended for my cat. ( She used to eat IAMs Weight and hairball Care cat food) I started to feed this food to my cat at dinner time when she usually has it and she just kept on meowing. (When she meows it usually means she's hungry.) I went to her bowl and it was full still. I said to her You have food. Then I had a feeling that she wanted her other food. So I decided to go to the store and buy some Iams. When I came home I emptied her dish into the bag the bin we keep her cat food in and Scooped one 1/2 cup into her bowl. She ran to me and started weaving in and out of between my legs and rubbing against my hand as i was pouring her food into her bowl. As soon as I backed away she ate like a goat that hasn't eaten in 2 days. Wow was she missing her food. Now I mix the two together and when ever i go to her bowl all the Iams cat food is gone and all thats left is the other brand!!! I mean it Baby ( My cat) LOVES IAMS CAT Food!!! Thank you IAMs and Petco for supplying pet food for pets.

Great for older cats
5 Star Review   By Murray on PETCO - Feb 2, 2008   

I've been feeding this to my cats for years. One just turned 14. He has lost most of his teeth, but because the pieces are so small he can still eat this easily. Also, it doesn't have the amount of cereal filler as some cat foods of lesser quality, so my cats actually eat less of it and are happy.

Yummy in my kitties tummy!
5 Star Review   By kittysnickers125 on PETCO - Feb 1, 2008   

My mom and I love buying Iams Weight & Hairball control for our 3 cats because it helps them stay fit and healthy!! Also helps control there hairballs! Since we don't allow them to go outside at all, Iams keeps them active.

Captain Crunch Approves
5 Star Review   By EasonBoxers on PETCO - Jan 21, 2008   

I have a 25 lbs cat named Captain Crunch. He was a shelter boy before he came to live with us. so we never really knew his background. Living at the shelter he ate whatever they gave him. So when it came to buying cat food i wasn't sure what to feed him. i tried 6 different brands of cat food and he hated them all. he would take a few bites and throw them up. Then someone told me about Iams. i tried this brand with fingers crossed and he loves it. since he has been on it his coat looks better, he is more active and all a round healthier looking. Thank you Iams !!!

Doesn't seem to work
2 Star Review   PETCO   

The weight control aspect doesn't seem to work. My cat is now up to 20lbs and I only feed her up to 1 cup per day. She has a bigger frame so she should probably be around 12 lbs. One positive is that either my cat doesn't like it as much as Purina or it's less filling because she doesn't eat it quite as fast.

Great Taste, Poor Nutrition
2 Star Review   By pumpkink on PETCO - May 20, 2007

Great Food
5 Star Review   By CORKY8490 on PETCO - Nov 8, 2006   

I have four cats. Two of them with very sensitive stomachs. We tried what seemed like hundreds of different foods, including some other premium brands, and this was the only one that they all could eat without vomiting. I praise the day I found this particular brand of cat food. Well worth the extra cost.

Iams Indoor
5 Star Review   PETCO   

Ive tried so many different products for my cat because of her hairballs and also she chokes alot on the other foods because the pieces are too big. She doesnt like to chew her food. I started to feed her the Iams Indoor and she loves it. It stopped the hairballs and the food is small enough that she can eat it with out choking. This product is A+

IAMS
5 Star Review   PETCO   

We have 6 cats that are all indoors and they love IAMS! I have found that the hair ball problem has diminished since we have switched to the Indoor Weight and Hairball Care formula. A real difference especially in the spring when they loose their winter coat. I also alternate with the lamb and rice IAMS for variety.

Iams is a great company, always developing new products to fit the needs of all kinds of cats. My cats are indoor, a tad bit overweight, and very prone to hairballs so this product is a perfect fit for my house.
