Iams Dog Food Review

With nourishing antioxidants and essential nutrients, Iams dog food is a widely available brand of dog food that your pet will enjoy. With delicious meaty flavors backed up by the addition of fruit and vegetables as well as probiotics and prebiotics, this truly is a complete meal for a canine. 

Iams Company Overview

In 1946 Iams dog food was founded by Paul Iams in Dayton, Ohio. Paul developed multiple brands thought his career until retiring in 1982. He sold his stake to his business partner until being bought out by Proctor & Gamble in 1999. Iams operated under P&G for several years, until being sold to Mars Incorporated who took over the business in North America and other regions in 2014. The European arm was later sold to Spectrum Brands. 

This brand of dog food builds on years of expertise in the field – the recipes for this dog food have been developed with the guidance of pet nutritionists and veterinarians. Which is why there are special products to serve a dog’s every need at each life stage. Take for instance, the specially formulated dog food that allows you to help your dog get to an ideal weight through the use of L-carnitine which can help burn fat for energy. Or the grain-free options designed to suit dogs with grain sensitivities. There’s also a Senior Plus range to battle aging and keep your dog fit and active into his golden years.  

Ingredients Found in Iams Dog Food

When it comes to dog food, it is important to be sure that the ingredients that go into their meals are of the highest quality and appropriate for a carnivore. Iams takes that a step further by ensuring the dog food also has nutrients from fresh produce and fruit and vegetable pulp to amp up the fiber and nutrient intake.

  • Protein: Animal protein like chicken, farm-raised beef, and eggs to help build muscle
  • Vegetables and fruit: Beet. blueberry, spinach, green peas, and other fresh produce loaded with antioxidants help your pet’s immune health and are important for strong bones and a good coat. This healthy carb source also provides your pet with a healthy energy source.
  • Whole grains like sorghum and easily digested carbs like rice for energy, minerals, and vitamins.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids: Anti-inflammatory brain food for your dog.
  • Omega-6 fatty acids for a glossy coat and better skin.
  • Special fiber blend: Probiotics and prebiotics for better gut health and to aid digestion.

Many dog owners say they love the fact that the core ingredient in Iams is now meat rather than corn or grain. Specified animals by-products and whole corn is still found in the first 5 ingredients in most of Iams brands though.
