Written on: 18/05/2011

In the past few months I have heard some "not-so-good" things about Iams Dog food amd I have been feeding my two dogs this food for several years. I would like some guanratees in regard to your dog food. It is not cheap and I go through a lot of food each month. I am seriously thinking about changing back to Eukanuba. Hope to hear from you soon.

Written on: 19/11/2010

14 week old boxer puppy developed diahhrea within hours after eating Iams proactive puppy food (orange bag). It was a new bag just purchased from local Walmart. Stools returned to normal after swittching to bland diet of rice and chicken. Diahhrea started again immediately after reintroducing Iams into diet. I took a stool sample to have checked by vet and she found excessive amounts of bacteria. Puppy was put on metronidazole and centrine meds. She is doing fine now, but I will never feed Iams… Read Full Review

“I had used IAMS Weight control for my beloved pet for...”

Written on: 12/09/2010 by LuvMyPups (4 reviews written)

I had used IAMS Weight control for my beloved pet for over 2-1/2 years. It was the vet formula. Yes, my guy did loose weight. For me it is a NIGHTMARE. I will never ever patronize IAMS again. My dog is terribly ill do to the food and contamination. This corporation has had 2 recalls on the products manufactured in 2007 and 2010. When I contacted IAMS they were rude and insensitive to say the least. I would discourage everyone from using IAMS dog food.
I encourage everyone to call… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/06/2010

My partner and I have bought Iams Junior Dog Food, for Large Dogs, chicken flavour, with probiotics for my Siberian Husky puppy whose digestive system is quite sensitive. Before giving this food to my pup, I've checked best before date and checked that there is nothing abnormal about food's look or smell. My pup's stool has been solid since (before he was fed with James Wellbeloved), and his coat is much shinier than before). Regarding the price, although it's not cheap, it's average for the… Read Full Review

Heres the Deal with Iams, I have a 3 year old 95 lb. WEIMARANER. Total Stud, super healthy and active, energy..ect.
He has been on Iams since he was a puppy. Anyhow i tried Blue buffalo thinking hey , I need to go healthier.., he immediatly started ripping some stink bombs, even with just a 1/4 mixed in with his Iams. Even if I try to be nice and mix in some ground turkey or meat with his Iams he starts ripping more bombs, brutal!
He is perfect with no weirdness at all with iams and some hot… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/06/2010

I have a 7month old scottish terrier that at first was eating cheap kibble and bits dog food. We decided to switch her to Iams proactive mini chunks. After a day we noticed her stool becoming more and more softer. She had accidents in her kennel which had never happened before. Now its like poop soup in her kennel the girl sleeps in it. I woke up twice every night to scrub her kennel clean and give her a nice bath. The only thing that has changed was her food. I dont recommend Iams proactive… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/05/2010

Our puppies had been on Royal Canin from the start and even though one of my dogs wasn't that fussed about it my vet said to get him to eat what he would because it was the best food on the market. However, my husband got made redundant and I ended up buying Iams from the supermarket for them. It didnt take more than a month for their fur to go dull and their skin to go flakey and they seemed very itchy all the tme. After reading other reviews about this product I decided to go back to Royal… Read Full Review

My 18 month old staffie was on purina beta puppy but was ill when we (gradually)changed to the adult. We tried the senstive food too and that didn't work. We (gradually again!) changed to iams and he has been fine ever since. Shiney coat and normal stools, he does agility and has plenty of energy. It works really well for him… Read Full Review

“My husband and I have an 8month old german shepherd....”

Written on: 06/10/2009

My husband and I have an 8month old german shepherd. We have been feeding her large breed iams puppy food until this past saturday. I opened the bag and some of the food was moldy and there was bugs in it and something that looks like a maggot. Needless to say, we took our food back and demanded a refund. The food made our dog vomit and have diarrhea. I will never feed my animals Iams food. We were told around this time of year bugs get in the food. So I do not reccommend buying this dog food… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/03/2010

That doesn't sound like it is definitely Iams fault. It could have been a storage issue with the store. This doesn't help me with the product itself as a whole.

My 4 year old Yorkie has had colitis for months. We tried everything, 2 different kinds of antibiotis,stool tests, cooking for her and nothing worked. My Vet gave me some Iams Veterinary Formula Intestinal Low-Residue dry food to try. Within 3 days her stool was mucus free and formed and within one week it was normal, hard stool and a different dog....wanting to play and go for walks (which she always loved to do)and full of fun! I am delighted my Vet suggested this product and it works!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/08/2009

We have a 1-year-old Golden Retriever and a 10-year-old German Shepherd and they both eat the Iams Large Breed food and do beautifully on it. Our Golden Retriever was raised on the Iams Large Breed Puppy formula. They both have shiny, soft coats, firm stools, and have a ton of energy. To anyone saying that Iams gave their dog runny stools, did you gradually transition your dogs to the Iams, or did you just suddenly/quickly change their food to Iams from something else? You need to make any… Read Full Review

Changed from bakers to Iams Dog Food, only because it didn't contain any nasties, and my bitch is pregnant and i wanted a good quailty food reasonably priced, i have 2 big rottwieler. Big mistake, i've gone from having pristeen dogs to dogs having poor brittle dull fur that is falling out, the only thing that has changed is their food, having read other reviews it looks like the fur issue is a common problem, hence i wouldn't recommend it for coat quality, but i had no problem with their… Read Full Review

Our Springer Spaniel, was eating Alpha Puppy when we brought him home. We needed to change to something more available in the supermarket / shop, so changed to Iams, thinking that premium puppy food (with a premium price) must be the best.
After around a week or so we noticed there seemed to be a negative change in his coat, digestion and behaviour. After much research we are now changing to Burns… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/12/2008

The first ingredient in Iams Dog Food is Chicken (with water). Once the water is taken out during the manufacturing process, it falls down on the list. This means the primary source of protein in this feed is Corn Meal.

I question this companies means of preservation. They seem very misleading (what is 'mixed' Tocopherois). There are too many other quality brands out there for the same money to be messing around with this stuff in my opinion… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/11/2008

My 13 yr. old lab/shepherd mix has always been fed Iam's Lamb and Rice dry food. Since last year, he got skin infections and has lost half the hair on his body. We thought it was just old age allergies (which he never had before), but the last trip to the vet turned on the light bulb. She asked if we had changed our dog food. We didn't, but had noticed that the food looked different than it used to. Then we found out through other concerned bloggers that Iam's changed ownership and the formula… Read Full Review

I'm surprised that people have had bad experiences with Iams Dog Food. Dogs always need time to adjust to a change in diet and this should really be done gradually. I feel that anyone giving this food a chance would find it to be excellent!… Read Full Review
