FRANKLIN, Tenn., June 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the IAMS™ Brand is launching a new High Protein cat food designed to feed cats' carnivorous nature and keep them ready to pounce.

"In addition to the nutritional benefits of protein-rich cat foods, these diets are enticing for cats because of the taste," said Dr. Ernie Ward, Veterinarian and IAMS™ Cat spokesperson. "The combination of real chicken and salmon in IAMS™ High Protein satisfies cats' desire for a great-tasting food while at the same time, providing fuel to their bodies."
