Rating: | Price: $$$ | WebsiteIams Healthy Naturals really looks quite a bit like the regular Iams, and I’m struggling to see the difference here. They use chicken as the top ingredient, which is good, but would be even better if it were chicken “meal”, so that the post-dehydration weight would be used and it would be more protein-loaded.
There just isn’t a lot to get excited about from there on. This food is heavy on the by-products and is high on the alcohol side products (both brewers rice and brewers yeast). Not only that, but they include corn in the food, which we know by now isn’t good for digestion in the least. It’s really as if they put chicken first so they could advertise it as such on the bag and mailed it in from there.

What’s good about this food….
Chicken is first, barley is used as a grain, flax meal.
….and what’s not so good.
Brewers rice is 3rd, corn, by-products used, brewers yeast.
