Iams Dry Cat Food Adult Lamb : A flavoursome adventure for our moggie!

The cats like it well enough. My bengal and ragdoll turn their noses up at many varieties of cat food, but they seem like this one ok. I normally feed them royal canin indoor and they clean their bowl. With iams, there are still a few slivers and crumbs remaining, but they do eat most of it. They’re in good health and the litterbox stinks slightly worse than when they’re fed with the canin. Then again, it always stinks. This is a decent value cat food and i’d recommend it for any cat without a specific dietary need.

My cats absolutely love this cat food, which is the most important thing. The added bonus is that it is good for them and provides them with all the nutritional elements that they need without having to provide wet food. It helps to promote:healthy digestion: tailored fibre blend, including prebiotics and beet pulp to help support your cat’s ability to absorb nutrientsstrong immune system: enriched with antioxidants to help support a strong immune systemstrong muscles: formulated with high quality protein to help your cat maintain strong muscleshealthy teeth: crunchy kibbles scrub your cat’s teeth with every bite, helping to reduce plaque build-up that can lead to bad breathhealthy skin and shiny coat: formulated with omega-6 and omega-3 for healthy skin and shiny coathealthy heart: 7 essential nutrients for a healthy hearthealthy eyes: natural source of taurine for healthy eyesa recommended buy for those who like happy cats :).

I’ve recently changed my cat food from whiskas to iams and so far i’ve very happy with the results. My cat is just over 1 year old and made the transition over to the iams very well – i followed the packaging’s recomendation to mix ‘old brand’ with ‘new’ over 3 days and this worked well. So far my cat has eaten all the food given to her (full iams portions) and has not turned her nose up at it once, as some cats tend to do while changing brands. I have been feeding her this food for about a week and a half and already her coat seems a lot more shiney, there’s no bad breath and, interestingly, her ‘buisness’ is a lot less smelly in the litter tray too. My cat is also a lot more ‘excietable’ in anticipation of her food, so i’m assuming that it prefers the taste too – in my case the ‘lamb & chicken’ option. The packaging also recommended feeding 1 portion in ‘halves’ over the day (morning and evening)and using this method each 3kg bag has enough for 46 portions (or 92 halves)which is more than a month’s supply of food, making it good value too. All in all i’m very happy with the iams and definatley will be buying more in future. Here are the specifications for the Iams Dry Cat Food Adult Lamb:

  • Prebiotics and beet pulp for healthy digestion
  • Antioxidants to support a strong immune system
  • 7 Essential nutrients for a healthy heart
  • No added artificial colours, flavours or preservatives
  • Available in 3 kg

As soon as they hear it open they run towards it. I’m around some picky cats but they have no issues with these. . How much more do you want me to elaborate?. I haven’t mastered their language to convey much more.

I tried this on five cats aged between 18 months and 12 years old. All of them showed immediate interest as soon as the bag was opened, and most of them were trying to eat it before i had even finished putting it in the bowl. Obviously the flavour and odour were a big hit. It seemed to keep them satisfied for quite a long time too, they didn’t even want treats for several hours. It kept fresh very well, no unpleasant stale odour. The hairball chicken had had a bit of an unpleasant side effect on the oldest cat (diarrhoea) so i watched him with some anxiety, but he showed no such reaction to this; everything seemed absolutely normal, except his breath seemed a little sweeter. He is also prone to plaque, and i believe after eating this some of the plaque had come off, but i can’t be sure. Still, i’d call it a resounding success; the cats love it, it keeps fresh and fills them up, and no tummy trouble at all.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • 2 out of (my) 3 cats prefer Iams – lamb flavour
  • My moggie loves it
  • No mess, none left

Iams, for all discening cats. Both my cats were overjoyed to receive this, i have used iams for several years already but have mixed it with other foods. This is the first time i have moved both cats onto an exclusively iams diet. As other reviewers have mentioned, the bags themselves are fairly flimsy and the contents need decanting into another container. This is not a hardship but it would be good if the bags were re-sealable. Iams is known to be a good quality cat food containing everything a cat needs to remain healthy, a complete food, you don’t need to give any extras. Both my cats love it and it continues to be a favourite here. One thing i particularly liked is the multipack option which i do not see in the shops, in addition it’s delivered and i don’t need to cart it home. Looking at the price is it competitive to buying three separate packs, possibly slightly cheaper which is always a bonus.

Great grub for finickity felines. This is a huge supply of the lamb-flavour food, around enough to keep one cat going for four months. But it’s useful to find the lamb flavour, because normally shops tend only to stock chicken varieties. My moggies have been eating dried cat foods like iams for nearly 15 years, and they thrive on them. It’s a complete diet in itself, so you don’t need to feed them ‘wet’ cat food as well — although mine do appreciate a bit of variety and the odd sachet of something juicy, too. You don’t need to feed cats very much iams — portion sizes are quite small — and it’s easy to over-feed, so you have to be a bit careful that you don’t end up with fat cats. The `weight control’ varieties are useful but my felines aren’t quite so keen on their flavour. Iams pellets are ideal for cats who live indoors and use litter trays; there’s less to clean up and it’s much less smelly/offensive. You must ensure that your cats have plenty of water available. It’s also worth bearing in mind that some of the more specialised varieties (weight control, anti-furball, etc) can get quite expensive.

    My cat eats it, but no favorite. I will go back to james wellbeloved that my cat loves. Good price if your cat eats it.

      1. 5 cats can’t be wrong – neurotic yes and well, cats, but they know what they like. Tested on a friend’s 5 house cats and 5 out of 5 love it. 2 were initially reluctant to try iams instead of their usual wet food but were won around after a week. The cats are more active (not necessarily desirable), their coats are better and they’ve been moulting less. If you let your cats out of the house to devastate the local song bird population, poop in others’ gardens and invade homes (a strange cat wandered into mine yesterday), then feeding them this stuff seems likely to encourage them to return to you from time to time.

    1. Pussy cats vote with their feet. . This is the second package of iams dry food i’ve had recently. The first was the chicken variety for a wee pussycat called oreo. She loved it but still has masses of it to get through. This batch was for my local cat shelter, a mix of different moggies right across the age range. The shelter uses a mix of wet and dry food and i’m reliably informed that iams lamb variety was extremely well received the vast majority of the residents. The one kilo bags are a manageable size although i think i’d prefer to see a re-sealable option on a bag of this size. In a one cat household this will last a while and i’d worry about keeping an open bag around for over a month at a time without the option of resealing.

    Excellent stable food for your cat. Iams is a long time leader in the field of cat food, and rightly so. Dry food is a useful staple diet for many cats, particularly those whose owners work or otherwise aren’t around to ensure their pet has access to food more of the day than just perhaps the once, that wet food owners could dare to feed in their absence (particularly in very hot weather. But as well as that, concientious owners will want to also ensure their cat is getting everything it needs in a balanced diet, rather than just something to fill it up. There are plenty of lesser quality, cheaper dry foods out there but many are missing key ingredients, or fail to meet a particular cat’s needs e. In this package iams have again produced a perfect mix suitable for most adult cats, if they aren’t suffering from certain conditions, e. Diabetes, kidney failure etc.

      1. My two cats, brandy and spaghetti are generally unfussy and will only turn their noses up at really cheap tinned food (although spaghetti is not interested in ‘real’ salmon and generally walks away when this treat is presented to her). Normally they have whiskas dry cat food complemented by ‘real’ food (chicken, fish etc. ) and are attuned to the sound of the bag opening within a 3 mile radius and can appear home within seconds one the food is in the bowl. Iams is a more expensive dry food, which promises additional health benefits for adult cats. Brandy is particularly susceptible to excessive moulting and sometimes has bald patches on her fur so i was interested to see if this was still the case when presented with ‘posh’ cat food. I am pleased to say that she is noticeably healthier and her fur is much better, although i cannot definitely say the iams has helped it does seem to have done the trick. I need to point out that the bags are not as easy to open as other cat foods – you cannot pull them apart and reseal them, and have to cut them and make a pouring spout yourself (thanks mr. Maker for assistance with this) the bags are also quite large (3kg as opposed to the 2kg bags i normally purchase) and are therefore not as easy to store. I can assume that my cats are happy with iams food, and i will continue to provide this to them until they tell me they want to revert back to their old choice.

    Ahh, the rank smell of cat meat, but sadly my cats love it and go on hunger strike* when fed with own-label kibble. [*i believe that a hunger strike entails dining at a neighbour’s house]so i was sceptical but hopeful that iams would save me from the tyranny of meat. I tested adult lamb, adult salmon and adult light chicken. The kibble itself and clean and not dusty, so it is easy to handle, and has a faint and not unpleasant odour. There is no obvious different between the three flavours. The two cats’ verdict: deliciousthe have, sadly, rumbled the light chicken version and give it the cold shoulder, but tuck heartily into the lamb and salmon. We do have to remember to give them plenty of water, but we soon got into the routine of refreshing the water bowl at every feeding time. Pricewise, it is about level with meat unless you buy a value range meat.

    Delivered to my door so made it easy and i didn’t have to lug it far. Easy to open thick plastic bag – didn’t need scissors. Lots of little brown pieces that aren’t too smelly and the cat seems to like it. In fact i’ll give the cat the last word: miaow.

    1. We’ve already tried our cat on the senior and mature chicken and adult ocean iams variety’s and he scoffed those ok, so we were confident he would accept this adult lamb variety. Guess what, he crunches these as well, no problem. In fairness, he is not a picky eater like some cats most definitely are, and i should also say that he doesn’t just have a dry food. The old chap also has moist food from pouches and is very partial to peeled atlantic prawns, no way will he eat warm water prawns. So for us the iams is a well-formulated supplement. But if the cat’s happy, i’m happy, and so i recommend it.

    Fine dry food for the kitty hoi polloi. . I tend to feed my two cats with a mixture or wet and dry food alternately at breakfast and dinner, but i find that on many an occasion they’ve become bored of the dry food on offer and tend to shun it – after trying iams food however, their interest in the food has remained high for the two months which i’m very pleased with. I of course cannot vouch for the taste of the food not being a cat myself, but all-in-all i’d say it’s a winner in my cat’s book. The lamb flavour reviewed here i must stress is only one of a number of flavours, and they also come in a number of variants for young and old cats as well. So, no matter what the age and preference of your cat is, you can find something for them here.

    Cat likes it, so does the dog . While this has gone down well with the cat (doesn’t like go cat or tesco value, does like purina and wiskers) i have to deduct a point as one of our dogs found a bag of this and broke into it. This has wasted a who 3kg of cat food & the dogs resulting poo was not nice.

    1. Iams dry cat food adult lamb & chicken 3kg. Well both of our cats liked the iams however there is a snowballs chance in hell that i would manage to convince them to go onto this solely and give up their wet food as both like their meat far too much. They both woofed down the iams biscuits though and i am therefore going to continue to feed the iams alongside their normal wet food until the packs run out. So a paws up in our house although not enough to give up the wet food as i honestly think if i took it away they would leave home and find another home which fed them meat. A couple of negatives for me on the iams in that like other reviewers have said the bag isn’t resealable and also the cost. On the resealing issue we have just used a couple of wooden line pegs to seal the bag and that has worked perfectly well to be honest with the top of the bag folded over. On the price i think it would have to be a bit cheaper for me to consider buying it in the future as compared to my local well known supermarket the price just isn’t competitive enough. I can buy the same weight in a well known cat food brand that begins with w for £16 less. Yes i fully understand that the iams is better nutritionally (although marginally from comparing the nutrition values) but unless the price was more competitive we just couldn’t consider switching in our home. A really good cat food though and i would definitely switch if possible in the future.

    Biscuit is usually fed on whiskas dry cat food alongside whiskas or felix wet pouches so i was interested to see how this iams lamb & chicken compares, especially as a premium product which promises additional benefits for your cat such as strong muscles, healthy digestion, strong immune system and a healthy heart. Firstly this product comes in 3x 3kg bags so if storage is an issue, it might be worth getting a smaller size. However, delivery is convenient if you don’t have access to a car and local supermarket. Unfortunately the large bags are not resealable so i would recommend decanting into an airtight container to ensure the food doesn’t go stale. Now to the real test: what did biscuit think?. He certainly seemed to enjoy the iams, however he isn’t a particularly fussy cat where food is concerned and ate a similar amount and at a similar speed as he does with his regular food. Whilst this is a fairly expensive cat food, a little goes a long way and it certainly seems like a quality product – it is definitely worth a try.

      1. We have 3 cats, one a pet shop diva, one a rescue cat and finally a stray tom. All 3 will eat iams as a topper to the wet food no real problem. But the first to eat around it is the pet shop diva, she has waves of thinking this is ok and wolfing it down, and waves where she avoids it like the plague. The rescue cat, will eat it as a topper, no issues, very rarely leaves any. But she eat two mouth fulls when we tried to move her to the whole bowl, we tried for 3 days, but she wasn’t happy, constantly meowing at the cupboard door, so we reverted back to wet food with this as a topper, and she ate like a demonthe stray tom, he’s the easiest, he will eat anything we put down for him. Overall, not the most successful result, but i think the food is very good quality, we have noticed a lovely shine to all 3 cats coats, and i’m happy to continue using it as the cats prefer, although i would order in lower quantities in future.

    As i type this, our cat simon has just munched his way through another bowl of these biscuits, and the regularity with which we see the bottom of the bowl is i think higher than with any other dry cat food he’s had. It doesn’t smell that bad either (although i haven’t been tempted to try it myself)having had a good look around in the shops and online, this seems to be one of the best deals for buying this cat food, so i’d heartily recommend it (and so would simon).

    1. We own 3 cats, ranging in age from 2 to 7 years. Each cat of course has its own personalties and preferences, so buying cat food can be a bit of a juggle as often one out of the three will have some sort of issue with an offered food. Our middle cat, age 6, has always been the biggest challenge. Since surviving a nasty accident several years ago in which her entire back end was crushed, she has had issues with her digestion, ranging from occasionally being unable to digest food that she ate just fine over several days prior and vomiting it back up almost whole, to producing some really nasty by products in the cat try after she has digested her meal. Our eldest cat over the past year has taken a rather “meh” attitude towards eating and spent most of his time sleeping and being a crochety old fart with his own toilet issues, most notably constipation. I was pleasantly surprised to find that he was actually interested in the food, and our middle cat actually became really excited, prompting us to call it “kitty candy” due to her sneaking into the kitchen and trying her darndest to get into the bag to gobble more. Our 2 year old cat also began to get really excited at feeding time. Ok, so all they like the taste and texture, but what really has me sold on the food is how over the past month i noted several really positive changes in our cats. The eldest began to be more alert, and his black fur gained a deep gleam to it.

    1. 2 out of (my) 3 cats prefer iams – lamb flavour. I have two middle-aged cat brothers and a `posh’ young maine coon. The brothers were fed iams for the first 5 years of their lives and loved it until the vet advised me to change their food to a science diet as he said it was better. He likened feeding a cat on anything but a science diet akin to feeding the kids cheeseburgers everyday. Full of shock and horror, i started buying a science diet brand and the boys were happy enough to eat it. Well, when posh missy came to stay just over a year ago, she came with what i always regarded as a cheap and nasty brand of cat food. She wouldn’t touch the science diet and my boys started thieving mc’s dinner in preference to their own. Cats being cats, i thought it was probably because they were just being contrary but no, they loved the `rubbishy’ brand. I took my cats for their annual vaccinations last month and discussed the subject of `good’ food versus `bad’ with the new, young vet. He told me that there was a lot of hype about science-based food versus the cheaper brands.
      1. 2 out of (my) 3 cats prefer iams – lamb flavour. I have two middle-aged cat brothers and a `posh’ young maine coon. The brothers were fed iams for the first 5 years of their lives and loved it until the vet advised me to change their food to a science diet as he said it was better. He likened feeding a cat on anything but a science diet akin to feeding the kids cheeseburgers everyday. Full of shock and horror, i started buying a science diet brand and the boys were happy enough to eat it. Well, when posh missy came to stay just over a year ago, she came with what i always regarded as a cheap and nasty brand of cat food. She wouldn’t touch the science diet and my boys started thieving mc’s dinner in preference to their own. Cats being cats, i thought it was probably because they were just being contrary but no, they loved the `rubbishy’ brand.
