Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great health benefits I have 2 cats, one of which is a picky eater, and they both really liked the Iams Proactive Health dry cat food. The dry cat food sizes were small and easy for my cats to eat. I like that it has natural ingredients and has the essentials needed to help my cat's immune system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cats Love It. Our cats are pretty finicky about what they'll eat, so we don't typically try to change their diet up too much. However after some recent dental issues, we wanted to find a dry food that was a little bit softer. The Iams Protective Health for senior cats has a higher moisture content than what we usually give them, so we decided to give it a try. Our cats like it so much that they snuck into the closet and started to try eating it through the bag! After some rearranging (hiding the bag), they are perfectly content with eating it out of their bowl. Added bonus that this food is not chock full of preservatives. We'll be keeping this one around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cat went right for it! Opening the bag I dropped a couple pieces of food and my cat bolted towards it and ate it all up so fast!. She was even licking the ground afterwards so it's safe to say she is definitely a fan of the flavor. Not going to have any problem getting her to eat now that she is a bit older.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Filling and healthy for the older cats I've given the Iams PROACTIVE HEALTH™ Healthy Senior to my mothers two cats that are very much seniors. They are so pickey when it comes to their foods and I was skeptical at first. Now when it comes to feeding time all I have to do is shake the bags and they appear. I'd say at least give it a try, your cats may love it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells good My cat went for the food immediately when I opened the bag, The smell of a new food was getting to my cat he ate all the morsels in his dish left a little at the sides of bowl. He seemed to like it a lot since he really went for the bowl of food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cat Daddy Loves it! Our Cat Daddy is the oldest of our cats, and since he is getting older we thought it was a good time to get him started on food that would help him stay healthy longer. Cat Daddy isn't usually fond of dry cat food, but he seems to really enjoy this IAMS Proactive Health.Usually, he will turn his nose up and yell at you if there isn't any pate on his plate, but every time I scoop some of this food onto his plate he eats it up without complaint! That's a win in my book!
