FAQ FEEDING GUIDELINES FOR YOUR CAT

Do you have any questions about IAMS? Find your answers here. If you don't find what you're looking for, contact us.

  1. HOW DO I DECIDE WHICH FOOD TO FEED MY CAT?
  2. Life stage, lifestyle, and overall condition are the three factors to take into account when deciding which pet food is right for your cat. Life stage refers to whether your pet is a kitten, adult, or senior. Lifestyle refers to how active or inactive your cat normally is. Condition refers to the cat's overall health and body weight.

  3. HOW OFTEN SHOULD I FEED MY CAT?
  4. A practical guideline is that kittens should be fed three times a day from weaning (3 to 6 weeks) to 4 months of age. After 4 months, they should be fed twice a day. Most cats should continue to be fed twice a day throughout their life, although some pets do well with one feeding.

  5. HOW MUCH SHOULD I GIVE MY CAT TO EAT?
  6. The amount to feed depends on the age, size, and activity level of the cat. Feeding guidelines, which list the daily recommended portion, are included on all IAMS™ packages. Start feeding with this amount and adjust according to your pet's needs. Remember to divide the portion accordingly if you feed more than once a day.

  7. WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO INTRODUCE A NEW DIET TO MY CAT?
  8. It's important when changing a cat's diet to introduce the new food slowly. Start by offering the cat's daily portion in a ratio of 25% new food to 75% old food. During the next three days, gradually increase the amount of new food and decrease the amount of old.

  9. IS IT NECESSARY TO FEED BOTH WET AND DRY FOOD?
  10. Wet food is an excellent treat that can be fed by itself or mixed with dry food. Although our wet cat foods are nutritionally complete and balanced, it is not necessary to offer wet food at every feeding. Our dry foods are formulated with high-quality protein sources such as chicken, lamb, or fish and contain all of the essential nutrients pets need. The crunchy texture of dry food also promotes healthy teeth and gums, and provides overall good oral hygiene.
