Refer to Iams packaging for specific guidelines. These guideline amounts are a starting point and your puppy may need more food depending on age, activity and temperament. In order to reach optimal body condition, you may need to adjust food intake. This represents the total recommended volume of food per day. You should divide the total recommended feeding amount by the number of times you feed your puppy per day to get the actual portion size per feeding. When introducing ProActive Health Smart Puppy Small & Toy Breed, gradually mix it with your puppy's current food over the course of 4 days. Remember to have clean, fresh water available for your puppy at all times. This formula is recommended for pregnant or nursing dogs. SAFE HANDLING TIPS FOR ANY PET FOODS AND TREATS: Please wash your hands before and after handling any pet food or treat. Wash pet food bowls with soap and hot water after each use.

Style Name: Senior PlusSize: 10.6 lbs. Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Upon opening the bag, the first thing that caught my attention was the size of the kibble. It's quite a bit smaller than most foods that I've been using lately, but it is like Iams other "mini" kibble varieties, so it's pretty easy to gobble down. On the plus side - easy to eat. On the flip side, it makes me wonder if it really helps a lot more with tartar control if there isn't much crunching going on. Only time will tell on that one.

The calorie count is 320 calories/cup, which is about medium and near the lower end for non-prescription foods. My pooch Niki's prescription Hill's low-calorie food is 244 calories/cup, and there are a few non-prescription foods in the upper 200s (such as Back to Basics Grain-Free Dry Dog Food, Lamb and Potato Recipe at 297 which she also really likes). So, this isn't quite as good for weight loss as some, but it's not energy-packed like a lot of foods that are in the 400-500 calories/cup range. It's a pretty good choice if your dog isn't overly active and doesn't need a lot of calories.

Regarding the Chondroitin and Glucosamine levels in the food, they (as with every food/treat I've ever seen) are significantly below the daily levels recommended by my vet (note that the levels they state are per kilogram, which is about 11 cups of food). Either my vet is way off, or this is more of a marketing thing. I'd say talk to your vet about what he/she would recommend. I give Niki supplements from Trader Joe's, and the levels in this food are so low that it doesn't really throw off the overall daily intake.

Niki eats it, but she's not enthusiastic about it. The nutrition values are pretty good, but not outstanding, IMO. So, it's a decent choice to try, but I won't be running out to get more.

Style Name: AdultSize: 11 lbs. Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
We have three Brazilian mastiffs. I was interested in this chow because our eldest dog (and, confidentially, our favorite), has developed some arthritis of the hip. (This IAMS chow is supposed to have some fish oils that theoretically would help. Too soon to tell.)

We prepared the chow by adding some warm water, a good trick generally for getting dogs to enjoy dry chow a bit more. We doggysat a friend's dog recently who was known as a picky eater and had no problem getting the pup to chow down without complaint with this tactic.

All three dogs, the seven year old, the 2 year old, and the four year old, took immediately to it and finished up every last kibble. So they liked it. We did not notice any marked difference in stool quality, which some have said is a concern. Will update if we notice a difference.

So, from the doggy perspective, a win. But how about from the critical human perspective? Well, according to chow watchdog sites, this chow is made from a pretty low grade of chicken rendering. I'm not sure how I feel about that. It's possible to take concern for doggy nutrition to extremes. I know of one Brazilian mastiff breeder who only feeds his children raw steaks with cloves of garlic stuck in them. He claims amazing results. Meanwhile, it is our experience that too much protein for dogs in warm climates can lead to skin and stool issues. While the chicken renderings sound pretty vile, dogs have evolved to eat human leftovers, so maybe its not so bad. The fish oils are great, some of the other ingredients appear to be pretty dodgy. Meanwhile, actual chicken is far down the list of ingredients. Research carefully and make your own decision. For us, we would certainly consider getting this again.

Recommended with caveats.

Style Name: Senior PlusSize: 10.6 lbs. Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
A lot of other reviewers have approached their reviews from a scientific point- that is not my strong point so my review is based on my dogs reaction to the food and my reaction to this food.

This Senior Plus food comes in a multilayer heavy duty paper bag with a grease proof lining that is folded over and glued on top and bottom. There is no designated way to open the bag - it is impossible to tear open the glued down ends and my kitchen scissor could not cut through the bag so I stabbed it with a knife and used a sawing motion with a serrated knife to open one side of the bag enough to pour the food out into the Dog Food Vault I use. The fish smell was very apparent as soon as the bag was opened. The food pieces are tiny and as I use a specially designed dog dishes to slow the dogs down the tiny pieces slowed them even more which is a good thing. Both my rescues, a 7 year old Black Mouth Cur and a 7 year old Standard Poodle- Wheaten Terrier love the food as does a 1 year old mini Doxie that I'm baby sitting for. Their stool is much darker in color but firm and easy to pick up which is important as clean up is a big part of walking a dog.

One star deducted for the impossible to open bag and half a star deducted because there is no expiration date on the bag and it really stinks-- the dogs love it! but because of the bag I would not purchase this food.

Style Name: Senior PlusSize: 10.6 lbs. Verified Purchase
I purchased this for my 12-year-old Pekingese. She has had back issues ever since she was attacked by a coyote two years ago; her back legs slide out from underneath her when she walks. This food has actually helped stabilize her spine and legs. I'm not crazy about a lot of the Iams products, but this one is hands down the best of the bunch. Will purchase until she's no longer with us...
