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 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great puppy food!!! What's next?!? My little puppy is now a year old and this has been his primary puppy food. We got him at a very young age and he was very tiny. Now, he runs and barks at dogs three times larger than himself. Thank you Iams!!! I would like to know what do I feed him now that he is a little more mature?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Iams ProActive Health Smart Puppy Food [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My puppy Brutus loves Iams Proactive Health Smart Puppy food. I've tired so many different kinds of puppy food because he is so picky. I know Iams Proactive health smart puppy food has all the vitamins and nutrients he needs. I'm so happy that I found a puppy food Brutus loves and that is healthy for him too. I had a friend of mine try some of the sample I received on her puppy Lucy and she also loves it and switching to Iams Proactive Health Smart puppy food too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My puppy LOVES this food. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received a small bag of the IAMS Pro Active Health Smart Puppy food from them to try. I wasn't too sure about changing his food on him, because he is used to his normal food. I must say though, my puppy LOVES this food. Seriously, I can't get him away from it LOL. I started with just a little bit because I wasn't sure how he would take to it. As soon as I set the bowl down he started chowing down. Once he finished, he looked at me like "ok, so where is more?"

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Dogs Happieness [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Before I got the dog food I didn't know what to expect but I always like to try new things, so I gave it a shot for my dog. When the IAMS dog food came I was excited for my dog, oh he was excited to, so I gave him the food but he wasn't all that in to it, but my dog is also crazy sometimes he'll eat something and sometimes he won't, so I gave him it the next day and he could not stop eating it. So the product is fantastic but just not all the time for my dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Baxter LOVES Iams [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As soon as I got my package of Iams Proactive Health Smart Puppy, my dog Baxter started going nuts sniffing at the bag, but no quite getting what was in it. As soon as I opened the bag and the delicious smell came out, I thought his poor puppy tail would wag right off his behind. Baxter was VERY excited. His first taste and he's been hooked ever since! Even when I try to give him his old Science Diet food to switch things up, he'll head right to the Iams bag and start wagging and giving me the sad puppy dog eyes. I do believe we have a convert! :-) I'm just happy to be giving my little one the best in nutrients for his growth and development. And making him happy all at once! The best is that tail wag. Anything for my baby! :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Iams dog food [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I typically give my dogs a wide variety of different dog food to eat because I feel as though they need that because my dogs definitely get bored if I give them the same thing all the time. plus who would wanna eat the same thing all the time. I think my dogs really enjoyed this product if they don't like a certain food they will let me know by not eating it but both my dogs eat the food up. I will definitely purchase this dog food in the near future :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IAMS Proactive Health Smart Puppy Food [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have two walker pups that I have been feeding Purina puppy chow and when I got the invite to test IAMS I was so excited to try something new for them! The Purina they ate but wasn't too fond of and when I set out the IAMS they went to town on it!! They loved it!! I love the benefits in the puppy formula in the IAMS that they are getting. I know they are getting all the needed nutrients needed for growing pups! I recommend IAMS to anyone with a puppy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] At the point of this review, the bag of Iams Proactive Health dog food that Iams sent me to test is gone and I plan on purchasing more for my two pugs. Beforehand, my pugs were starting to become rather picky and not wanting to eat their breakfast. They really enjoyed the food, I noticed that they tended to eat more of it as opposed to letting it sit in their bowls all day (as they were doing with their previous food). The food did not make my dogs sick, and they seemed to like the food they were eating, both a plus. I recommend Iams dog food to others - especially if your pet(s) are getting sick or uninterested of their current food, like mine was. As an added bonus, the measuring scoop that they sent with the food was awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this food for my puppy!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Iams puppy food is by far the best because it has the essential nutrients so my puppy can grow strong a healthy. When I first open the bag and put in the bowl, she run to me because she wanted to try it. The bowl was empty after that, so I think she loves the food. The bag is in the half of it and she always wants more. I recommend this food to all my friends and family that have or desire to buy a puppy so they can feed them with a quality food.

And i love the key chain and measuring cup that came with it! Made my day and very helpful to know how much im feeding them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Iams ProActive Health. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My puppy has transitioned well and he loves the taste. He is a Basenji and he is a bit picky. I must say I am also as feeding store bought is scary and I need to trust again after the poison problem companies had happen. So far so great. Iams is winning us back!! Product is safe. Nutrition is perfect and dog loves the food, as a bzzagent I received a free bag Iams ProActive Health and I have a large amount of friends who are now trying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One Happy puppy [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Well one thing if for sure my little Chloe loves Iams puppy food. I wasn't sure how she would react to it at first but she loved every bit of it. Her coat is softer and shiny and she has so much energy! We've made it half way thru the bag and I have seen the difference in her! I must say that I am very impressed overall with the Iams brand and I was very happy to be a part of this Thank you Iams for the chance to try out the puppy food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gus Loved It! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My Baby and Bestfriend Gus Gus loved Iams and I'm not over exaggerating. So what I did was put his ordinary food in one bowl and Iams in another and he went straight to the one containing Iams. I'm glad and very satisfied to know that Gus is getting everything he needs. I'm very excited to see him grow big and strong! Thank you Iams for this great opportunity you have given us and especially for My Baby Gus which by looking he loves it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Lady is an Iams pup! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Lady's transition to Iams!!! She loves this brand dog food. As her owner, she's part of the family. I want her to have the best quality in dog food. I love how the first ingredient is not a by product. She enjoys the dog. For a puppy she is a very picky eater. We have tried a few other brands that she seams to just pick through. The price is well worth it and I'm happy to finally have a product that works best for her. Thank you Iams!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received a bag of Iams® and immediately tried it out with my puppy Layla. She can be a pretty picky eater when it comes to her dog food so I was surprised when I saw how quickly she started eating it and enjoying it. The bowl was completely empty in minutes. I love the fact that Iams® is so healthy for her and she's getting all of the essential nutrients she needs to be a strong puppy. We will definitely be buying Iams® again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy puppy tummy! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My puppy is picky when it comes to food so after receiving my sample of Iams puppy food I put her old food and some of the Iams out and she went for the new food. So far she seems to be really enjoying it and it seems to be gentle on her little tummy. I love that it has balanced nutrition for her growing body. From my experience thus far I would recommend the Iama puppy food to friends and family and share the word with others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so great [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] More than just so far, so good. The Iams Proactive Health for Pupppies is the best puppy food I have used, and I have fed many a dog. I know what the ingrediants are in each and every bowl. Not only are they high quality ingrediants, but I know my lovely lady is getting all the essential nutrients she needs. Stella is more excited than normal when she sees me about to fill her bowl, and she seems to be loving the taste!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Teds new food [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The first thing you would want to know is what are the ingredients and if meat was the first product you see and on the front of the bag it says first ingredient is chicken another thing I loved was if you are a first time pet owner of a puppy it gives you a measuring system on feeding you puppy the size of the food is very good for small dog and they are just hard enough to keep your puppies teeth healthy and strong

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tail Wagging Good! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was eager to try Iams Smart puppy food because I knew Iams was a good company. Upon recieving the food, my Schnauzer puppy Smokey was excited as well. He pounced on that first bowl and gobbled it all up. I assume that means it tastes yummy. He has continued to enjoy his meals ever since. I have been hearing about DHA in baby food to help with brain development so I am glad to see it in puppy food as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Puppy! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My puppy is very picky when it comes to his food! Depending on the brand he will not even eat without wet food mixed in it! With Iams, I found that I could put some dry food in his bowl (without wet) and he would eat it no problem, he really seems to like it! He seems to be more lively and active since eating Iams! I will definitely consider purchasing Iams in the future!! Thanks Iams for the great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Eddie's food [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received the package and was impressed with its own measuring cup. I received the IAMS for puppies and Eddie was excited. Eddie is a 3 month old chihuahua. He loves it. He enjoys the crunching sound it makes when he eats it. He will take a few kibbles and take them to another room just to hear the crunch. As an owner I thought it would be a little bit softer since it is for puppies, but Eddie loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Parti Yorkies are having a party! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We started our yorkies out like it was recommended 25% IAMS and 75% of original dog food the first day then 50/50 then 75/25 then 100% Iams our yorkies started the first day picking out the IAMS over their old dog food they love it. Also we love it since it is small chunks since they are small dogs I always worry about choking. so they are eating better, it's healthy, and it's safer also. Thanks IAMS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wowed by this [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received Iams proactive health compliments of Iams. Before my lab would show little to no enthusiasm when chowing down on dog food, but now after trying this he gets excited everyone I pour him a bowl. He woofs it down so fast like he was starve. I've noticed he is a bit more active and playful. The food doesn't smell quite that bad honestly. I'll probably be feeding him Iams proactive from now on.
