These guideline amounts are a starting point and your puppy may need more food depending upon 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.
•    Remember to have clean, fresh water available for your puppy at all times.
•    This recipe is recommended for small and medium breed puppies up to 12 months of age as well as pregnant or nursing dogs of all breed types. 
•    During the last three weeks of gestation, increase feeding amounts by 25% to 50%. During lactation, feed as much as she wants (usually two to five times the guideline amount, depending on litter size).
•    Because IAMS Puppy food is complete and balanced, you do not need to add vitamin or mineral supplements.
•    When introducing IAMS Puppy food, gradually mix it with your puppy's current food over the course of 4 days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our puppy loves it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received IAMS Smart Puppy food from IAMS so my puppy can give it a try and switch to a healthier diet. At first I wasn't sure if our puppy was going to like, since she has always had the same kind of food brand. Turns out she absolutely loves it! She kept crying for more food, I was surprised! IAMS Smart Puppy food has chicken as the 1st ingredient, includes nutrition to developing bones, immune system development, and it also includes dha for smart puppies. All of that combined together is excellent for my puppy. She couldn't get enough! I will absolutely continue to buy IAMS for my puppy throughout her life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My pups love it [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So we tried this dog door with our 3 month old pug and she loves it. Her coat seems to be coming in well. It's not often you find dog food at this great of a price that has full proteins listed as the first major ingredients. The first listed ingredients are whole proteins which is great. Although our pup is young and still growing i see lots of positive growth thanks to this food. I also have a 9 year old husky who took a liking to the food. Even in him I see his coat growing in better and his overall health improving. I plan on getting an adult version of the food for him. Overall I'm very pleased with this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rescued puppy Bony no more My puppy came to me in December of last year eating what was said to be a good quality food. I didn't think it was. He was scrawny and not gaining, oh and not to mention excreting often a not so healthy sample. I started him on this food and immediately noticed his coat changing to losing less hair, his bony figure was filling out quite nicely(I must add that he was charted for 1.5 cups but vet has me giving 1 Cup 2x daily. He looks great and is very active. He is alert, and in a sense hyper. My only regret is that I feel he just might need a bit more to maintain his energy level but I erfuse to add to his diet as he is suplemented with treats through the day and his occasional PB kong treating. Love the product. Love the comapny.They have been more than generous with their time, advice, and savings. Thank you Iams. No more skin and bones yet well within healthy fit for breed and age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tho Big Swotcherdo.. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really could care less what my puppies for looks like, or how it tastes.. To me! I care that I am giving him what he needs as far as nutrients and that he approves of the look and taste. We received a big ol' "yum- yum" from our 4 legged family member! We switched, and right away he enjoyed it, as the days went by we kept a close eye on his eating/potty habits as changing dog food formulas can cause havoc on poor little puppy tummies! Much to our surprise it did not. The transition was easy, he had no changes in potty habits and now our pup is an IAMS puppy food pup ! He is getting everything he needs which is what I like!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT I work for animal control and I recently rescued a pregnant overbred pitbull. She was rescued by one of my coworkers and was treated for kennel cough. He found out that she was pregnany and scheduled her to be euthanized, but my heart dragged my across the shelter and I took her home. I started her on IAMS Pro Active Smart Puppy. She really likes the food. Well, she had 4 beautiful healthy boys. She is still eating the puppy food and not only does she look so much better and happier, but her puppies are EXTREMLY healthy and very smart. I'm glad I tried SMART PUPPY. I highly recommend this diet to everybody!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ONLY food that agrees with our Plott Hound Our Plott Hound Teka is 7 months old now, but over her first few months we were feeding her chicken, rice, carrots, kale because we could not find a dry food that agreed with her (Kirkland, Taste of the Wild, Canidae). She would have diarrhea after introducing any other dry food. Then we read reviews on Iams Smart Puppy and decided to give it a try. Now after a month of slowly introducing Smart Puppy and it becoming 90% of her food, she is doing great. She even acts happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs loved it and weren't picky!!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] IAMS blew my mind my 11 month old Chow Chow is really picky when it comes to dry food. At first he was hesitant to try it. But after seen my other dog try it, he did too. They are really satisfied and seem to enjoy it. I try to change their food around and not sticking with just one brand. I research different options. Seems like IAMS scored with my dogs. Having my dogs like it and knowing it will provide my dogs with good nutrients and make them stronger has me sold on this. I will definitely purchase IAMS for them. Thanks bzzagent for the free sample.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from iams puppy [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Me and my 8 month old lab Tyson were ecstatic to receive Iams smart puppy food from Iams. I was even more ecstatic when I realized my pup really enjoyed it. I really like the fact that Iams puppy has chicken as the first ingredient. And that this brand focuses on the pups development and the nutrients put into the food. When I first opened the bag I actually thought the food smelled pretty good. The kernels of food were perfect size, and not to hard. Tyson and I definitely had a good experience with the Iams brand and we will continue to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Foster Puppies love it! My husband and I foster for a local rescue and we only take puppies in. They learn social behaviors from our older dogs and we take on the house breaking, crate training, and learning to walk on a leash. An important part of the training process is food- they need to get the proper nutrition and learn good "table manners." Iams puppy food has always been good to us. It it affordable & the puppies love it. It is one of those things I always have on hand (in case we get a call for an emergency foster) and I know I can always count on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Iams puppy food [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] First thing I look at when purchasing a new kind of dog food is how healthy is it for my dogs. Are there any extra benefits such as healthy weight, shiny coat, etc. another I look at is price. Of course do my dogs like the brand. Iams has always been a favorite of my dogs and love feeding them Iams. Now that I have 2 puppies the new puppy formula seemed like great idea. My pups love the food. I would defiantly recommend this product to anyone who has puppies. It's a very healthy formula and they get tons of energy from the food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Baby's Getting Bellys Full [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Crazy to think a different kind of dog food can help with your pups activities.. But it's true. Wasn't sure was to think about changing foods, but of course- getting a sample from Iams .. How could I not try it? Better than I had imagined! My babies love love love it. I've noticed and difference in their play and interaction with each other and myself. No upset stomachs, no acting like they are tired of eating the same thing! When my babies are happy- this mama is happy!!! Thanks IAMS! You're the best, and so is your food!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lady's new fave! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received Iams proactive health puppy food in exchange for my review. When it arrived in the mail, immediately liked the packaging. We had never used Iams before so we were curious if our little girl, Lady, would like it or not. Of course changes in feeding can cause problems, but Lady seemed to like the new food right away. Lady is an 10 month old terrier. With her old food, her coat was shiny and appeared healthy. After a week on Iams proactive health, her skin and coat were shinier and healthier. She has been an active puppy since we adopted her from our local shelter, Iams seems to sustain her longer. Thanks for a great dog food. My fur baby thanks you too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My pups love it [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So I received my Iams Proactive Health original puppy food and as soon as I brought the box inside my two puppies started sniffing the box! They were so excited, wagging their tails while smelling the box.. I opened the box and my measure cup was broken, but I fed my puppies and they LOVED it! Now they are both being lazy pooches sleeping! I feel good about giving my dogs this food because I love that it increases brain development with DHA. Overall I'm very happy with this puppy food and my fur babies seem to love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puppy Love Treat!!!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My puppy and myself were thrilled when we were picked to review Iams® ProActive Health™ Smart Puppy Original food, from the Iams brand. My puppy surprised me when she acted like this was the best thing she had ever tasted! She finished her bowl, and basically thanked me for her food, which didn't happen before she tried the Iams. She definitely enjoyed it, and I enjoy knowing how healthy this food is for her. She is a pup, and although she was rowdy before, she just seems more energetic and happy. Thank you, Iams!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Iams ProActive Health dog food [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received a bag a Iams Pro Active smart puppy food in the mail from Iam s to sample for my puppy Muffet. She absolutely loves it. She is a St. Bernard and is 10 weeks old and has been picky with her dog food, I fill her dish two times a day and she gobbles it down and sometimes I give her more. The bag is definately not gonna last long. I also feel it is very healthy for her and nurishing also. I will definately be buying this for her from now on and I would recommend this to my friends with dogs and to strangers. Thank you Iams for helping me find a dog food for Muffet that she really likes and for a healthy one for her to help her grow healthy :)... I really trust the brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an amazing difference! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I revived my bag a few days ago and decided to try it out that day. The food I give my puppy right now is a little large even though it says for puppies. Can I say that his iS just the right size! My puppy loves it and when she took that first bite she went crazy. It was like the best thing in the world to her. She only looked up to wag her tail and breath. I really liked the ingredients list and Chicken being the first with no fillers. That is one of the main things I look for and want to know about any food for my pet. After a few days of trying it I can say that she has more energy and is way more active. I might have found a better dog food than what I am currently getting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IAMS Puppy Food I got a new puppy in November last year and we noticed the food she was eating made her sick. We decided to try transitioning her to IAMS Puppy and we have not had any issues since! She loves it so much and the other dogs try to eat her food all the time so it must be good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my puppy loves this food! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have a 10 month old Chihuahua puppy. I was excited when I got this food. I was even more surprised it came with a measuring cup so I can give him one cup of puppy food. Plus that keychain is super cute! My puppy didn't realize that this was a new brand since he has been eating what our other dog eats. However, when I gave him this puppy food, he ate the whole bowl. He loved it and always gets excited when I put out more for him. I'm glad he loves it and I would buy it again in the future :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Stuff! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have two Siberian Huskies and let me tell you that they love this stuff! I was a bit skeptical because I did not want my pups to get sick because of the change but I have to say this is the best thing I could of done for them. I started off by giving them a little at a time and then gradually gave them more and more. I saw that there digestive system was working better and they were more active than they already are. I would definitely recommend this to all of the dog owners that I know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Iam Smart Puppy [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love my puppy and I want to feed him the best food that I can. I received the Iams Smart Puppy in my bzz kit so I put a little out for Hogie and he liked it so his next meal I did half and half then the next meal I did the whole bowl with Smart Puppy. He didn't have any issues with the change so that was great. He really likes it and it makes me feel good to give him food he enjoys that is healthy for him. I have noticed that his poops are a little bit firmer and easier to pick up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a small dog [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My puppy is less than 2Ibs. She's a Shih Pom (Shih Tzu/Pomeranian mix). We had used another brand (started with an A) that the kennel we got her from had been using. We had her try Iams Proactive Smart Puppy, and she loved it. She kept going for the Iams dog food over the food she had grown up on. She's a very active little puppy, who's is 4 months old. The small bite sizes are perfect for her small mouth. It's not too hard or too soft for her teeth either. Her coat is softer now that she's started eating Iams. Nutritional wise, she's getting the extra calories she needs for her activity level. It's an excellent source of protein. She doesn't seem to have any problem digesting the Iams puppy food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Puppy Power! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My puppy absolutely loved Iams brand puppy food! And I love the fact that it provides all the nutrients a puppy needs as they are growing. She didn't seem to mind the change in dog food and I don't mind at all that her dog food is benefiting her growing body. This food is helping her in the right direction to healthy life! The key chain is adotrable and have since placed it on my keys. And I have also utilized the dog food scoop which makes serving my puppy's food soooo much easier!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yumm!! Dinner time! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So since starting the Iams campaign , I have to say my dog absolutely loves the new chow! I placed his other brand of food in one bowl and Iams in another bowl just to see which one he prefers. At first he was sketchy about it. But once he tasted it it was define lay his favorite. I have already used the bag that came in my kit and have since then purchased another bag. Every other day I will mix it with a little wet food. He eats all his food and can literally hear me when I grab the bag and scooper,which I love, when I open the pantry for feeding time. He wags his tail as I fill his bowl up. I have buzzed to a few people so far, some already use Iams, but the ones that dint said they would try it..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Proactive Health Meaning I started my dog on Lams Proactive health Pate about two months ago. She was having problems with her skin. Her skin problem cleared up after almost a year of trying different shampoos, medication, and different foods. I don't know if this is the right one for her she is 8 yrs old and in the house most the time and doesn't exercise much. She's is Shi Ziu. Is proactive formula good for her
