    The kitties loved this! I opened the bag and they were crowding around, and when I poured it, they were pushing each others heads out of the dish in turns, scarfing like crazy. Even our senior cat, who is 19 now, and super finicky, was eating this with gusto manga manga!

    Great & healthful ingredients, the trusted IAMS brand and a dry food that gets two paws WAY up! What more can our furry friends ask for?

    Quality Cat Food — Price Is A Little Steep, May 8, 2016

    As Vine reviewers, we were offered this 3.5 lb. bag of the dry chicken food to test (can’t comment on the tuna variety). We have two large indoor/outdoor male cats. These are pets, but they are also working boys. We live in a wilderness area, and although their turf is restricted to a large fenced in garden area and the roof of the house (outside of which they themselves would be at risk from cougar and coyote), they are busy helping to control the substantial rodent problem (from mice to packrats). They also eat a lot of insects and even the odd lizard and snake. So their food has to support an active lifestyle.

    Iams of course is a famous brand. I checked a couple of consumer websites and this dry cat food was high on the list. Other cat food ratings sites don’t even list Iams in their top brands. It’s tough to get a really good scientific rating out there, as we the consumer can’t tell which sites are real and which are supported financially by the pet food industry.

    All that said, there are a couple of main reasons we like the Iams’ product. 1) Number 1 ingredient is chicken. That is, not chicken meal, or other things but chicken itself. We suspect that, like chicken nuggets, this may include ground up parts of all kinds — but really, there’s nothing wrong with that we can see. When a cat eats a mouse or bird, it eats just about everything except the tail, or feathers. 2) There are no fillers — stuff that is just added to make the cat food go further and increase the company profits. They list other good things, including antioxidants and “seven essential ingredients.” Only quibble with that is, why not tell us what these are? Another ingredient listed — “prebiotics.” We know what probiotics are — we take them, and you get them in living (unpasteurized) raw yogurt, for example. But a prebiotic? Turns out, a probiotic is actual living good bacteria that helps your (or your cat’s) intestinal health. A prebiotic is a type of plant fiber that nourishes the helpful bacteria already in the gut. So there you go.

    One of the main things for any cat owner is this: no matter how good it is, does your pet like and eat the food? The answer to that in our case is an unqualified “yes!” Usually our boys don’t take to a new food, wet or dry, unless it’s gradually mixed in with their already-accepted food over the course of a few days. But with the Iam product, they went for it right away. That’s a bonus.

    We took a star off for price. We’re used to buying large bags of dry cat food at Costco, which also has chicken as the top ingredient — for a lot less money. This 3.5 lb bag is (round numbers) $12, plus another $6 for shipping = $18. That’s a lot of money for a smallish bag. You can order up — the largest bag available is 22lbs. for $30, with free shipping — BUT (at the time of this writing anyway) it “usually ships within 1 to 2 months.” What??? Too long to wait.

    We don’t know why this Iams product is not available for Prime shipping, as the description says the seller is owned by Amazon. We’d ask them to get that together. Taking 6-bucks off the price for Prime members would help the bite in the wallet.

    Overall, this is a quality cat food from a reputable manufacturer.

    Recommended.

    Willy is Pleased, May 20, 2016

    The Iams Proactive Health with Chicken Cat Food gets four stars because Willy likes it just as well as his usual grain free dry cat food. The Iams would get five stars if it were grain free. Chicken is the first ingredient, but after the chicken is corn. Corn is not any more a preferred cat food ingredient than it is for people.

    Willy loves to do taste tests. Every time that I open a package from Amazon, WilIy thinks that it is a new cat food or toy for him. He is often right. I put samples of his grain-free food and the new Iams food in bowls next to each other. He went for the new food first. Then he moved back to the old food. He ate some of that. He moved back and forth several times. He finished the new food first, but ate all of the food from both bowls. This happens almost every time that we do a taste test. Willy seems to like everything that I give him, but he was certainly pleased by the new food.

    Willy is a large gray tabby, who now weighs around 13 pounds. When I adopted him, he was a skinny 11 pounds. He had been living on the streets of New York City. After several months of eating only dry food, he became a round 16 pounds. I switched to mostly canned food and some dry food for treats. After a while, he slimmed down to his present 13 pounds.He spends a lot of time patiently hunting rodents in my house. His total for almost three years is now 69. I intend to keep giving him mostly canned food, but also dry food for dessert snacks.
