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 IAMS Smart Puppy, smart decision or not? [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have used Iams brand dog food for my 3 month old puppy since we first got him. He is a full blooded Pittbull and is a very playful pup. We have always fed him Iams and he loves it, and he has always been a very smart dog. Since he has been eating the Iams Smart Puppy he has started doing a lot better when it comes to informing me of when he has to go out. Now, I am unsure if that is because of the brand or not but since he has been eating it he is starting to look a lot healthier than before and he actually eats the whole bowl. Before he would eat about half and then be done, but as soon as he tried the smart puppy he cleaned his plate so I am giving it 5 stars because of how it helped my dogs appetite change and made him so much more active than before it has become his new brand!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product - Just like the adult food. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My puppy enjoyed the chicken flavor of the Iams Proactive Health Smart Puppy food which surprised me. She has been a bit of a food snob since I got her and typically enjoys beef or lamb flavored foods. We have gone through the entire bag (which I got for free to test from Bzzagent) and are planning to purchase more. My two older dogs eat Iams food regularly, so we are definitely fans of the brand!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Pup, Happy Me [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When we first brought our puppy home we went out and bought him the best (most expensive) brand of dog food we could find. Well like most things in life, more money doesn't always mean better. It ended up giving him the runs. This campaign couldn't have come at a better time for us. He loves the food and we haven't seen any diarrhea! I like that it's both good for my pup and easy on the wallet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from He loved it [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got a bag of IAMS puppy to try for free from IAMS. I gave it to my puppy Toby. At first he was leary ( it was different then his previous food by size and smell. Well he ate it. He actually seemd to really really enjoy it. I was pretty worried that switching it on him would give him belly aches and the runs. He had no issues at all. No runs and no throwing up. Im sticking to IAMS puppy food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Puppy approved [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Roxy is my first puppy and she gets spoiled. As a concerned puppy mom I am very and want to make sure she eats food that is good for her. I want to make sure she gets the proper nutrients and like natural dog food that doesn’t have fillers and unneeded additives. I was very impressed by the Iam’s Proactive Health and it had what I look for in a dog food. I also think Roxy enjoyed the food too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from IAMS proactive health smart puppy I just scooped a cup of food directly from the bag and there is some sort of a tooth in it. My puppies are three months old- they have tiny teeth so this is not one of theirs. What the heck?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from what I would expect from iams [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have not tried iams in the past, I was a bit reluctant to try a new food for my canine pup.as I mentioned the food to other dog lovers the known food was mentioned as amazing as well as the name iams. Pup seems to love it and the handy scoop helped me feed the right portion ammount . In a few days I noticed increased activity level. In turn worked harder which equaled sleep harder.. pup after 5-8 days also seemed to sleep more at night maybe as the food was better digested .Iams puppy food = happy puppy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great nutritional food for a puppy [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received one pack of Iams Proactive health Smart puppy dog food from Iams in an exchange of a review. I have a 5 months old pit bull mixed puppy and he really loved it. As soon as he heard me opening the package he was all hyped up and it seemed that he really loved the food because he was chomping it down quick and asking for more. The food also smelled better than the typical ones I get. Even my cat ate some of it. Since he seemed to be loving the food I'm thinking about switching from my previous food to Iams until he's a year old because Iams dog food has a lot of necessary nutritions and proteins in it to increase puppy's brain development as well as build a strong immune system and I want him to grow up as healthy as possible. After that I'll have to see because he has quite the appetite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Food! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I wanted to wait to see if I could see any results in my dog before I wrote a review. I noticed before the bag was over the coat of my puppy was getting even more soft. He is definitely full of energy and play. He seemed to really like the taste right away and I have never any trouble with him eating it, that's for sure. I would definitely recommend this food to anyone with a puppy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from still going strong [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So we are about a week or so into trying the iams puppy food and tank loves the puppy food. I tried giveing him some of his old food and he turns his nose up to it. It seems all he will eat is iams. He actually slipped and slide into the wall this morning running to his bowl to eat. Our friend says shes going to switch her dog to iams after seeing the way tanks loves his food

Rated 4 out of 5 by from happy puppy [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is great puppy food the transition from his oldnfood to this was seamless, no problems at all, hisbfurbwas shiny and he was a happy dog, I have to say I was skeptical even though I love the iams brand I did not think id see much of a difference between his original iams puppy and this, cant really say he is that smart because im a momma bear amd think he is amazing or cuz of the food but he is a bright pup, thanks for letting me partake in this campaign

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far Buster LIKES IT!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My puppy Buster, a shelter dog, is 5 months old and a very picky eater which I find surprising since shelters often give food which is donated and no particular brand. I have tired a variety of dry dog foods and he did not eat them with any gusto. In fact, when I took him to the vet he told that I should try IAMs so I was thrilled when IAMS sent me a bag of Smart Puppy! So far he has had it for three days and I followed the suggested serving size and he is eating it with little coaxing and no mixing of other foods to entice him. It makes me feel good to know that I am giving him all the important nutrients in one bowl becuse even though he is a dog, he is my 5th "child". I am going running low and will purchase another bag at the store. Since Buster enjoys his food I am feeling like a much more competent pet parent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love this food!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When the Iams dog food arrived my puppy was happy to taste this food. In the Day 1, I mix the current food with the Iams food. And so on to leave my puppy only eating the Iams dog food. He loves this food and I am going to buy some bags to have them in stock. I definitely recommend this food to all puppy owners and definitely wants to gave them quality food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great dog food [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got it from Iams and i dont regret, i have 2 little yorkies and they are very picky. This was the one food that all two dogs liked and worked with their digestive systems. One of my puppy was sensitive to other brands. Once I figured this one worked for him, I switched to the same food for all two. I hope to stay with this food for more years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Picky Eater Loved it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My picky picky eater has only ever eaten Beneful dry food. I honestly was worried that my Doremon wouldn't like the Iams, but wouldn't hurt to try it out so I could Bzz about it and write my reviews. I must say, this was a winner for us! BzzAgent has done it once again and introduced me to a product that will become part of our household shopping lists!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Iams forever My boyfriend and I adopted a parsons russell terrier that was 3 months old back in April 2012 and we were new pet parents who were under-informed. So we just bought a regular (kinda cheap) off brand dog food b/c we didn't think it mattered too much. About a week later we noticed large red balding spots on our sweet pup and were very concerned. We took him to the vet several times with the answer always being that it was just sensitive skin and to bathe him with special ($30# dog shampoo sold to us by the vet....which I did. That still didn't help so I did some research and found out the dog food we were feeding him was the problem....I felt terrrible! The food had too much corn in it and was causing his rashes. So we bought two differerent, very expensive, brands of organic dog food that I won't say the name of. But each time he wouldn't eat either one #neither would my roommates dog lol)....I suspected he did not like them. So I switched him to Iams Proactive Health, Smart Puppy dog food. He loves it, it is affordable and the best part is that his rashes have healed and we have seen no more of them pop up! Thanks Iams, our sweet puppy is now 8 months old, happy and healthy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transition success [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So we are just about finished with out transition to IAMs dog food but our puppy decided to speed up the transition for us. He is actually going in and picking the IAMs out and leaving his old food behind. As you can see in his picture, he only left the old food! He even stood at his bowl and ate it all, which he never does! I guess we have a winner.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hmmmmmmmmmmm [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I'm not sure this is doing anything for my dog. She seems to like it though. Well, she seems to eat it. I'm not sure if she "likes" it, exactly. She is always active, but I can't tell if this makes her even more active or if this is just her usual active-ness. I want to keep feeding it to her for a bit before I make any serious judgments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My puppy loved it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My puppy almost lost her mind waiting for me to get the bag open. Her tail was wagging like crazy. She practically inhaled the food so I am assuming it was great tasting! She had no problem with energy, digestion, or allergies after eating it. Overall we are happy with the taste, price, and effects the food has on our little girl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only food my puppy can handle [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We had started out our puppy on iams smart puppy when we got him. And he is 5 months so been on it a few months. The other day we ran out and had some food that is made locally that I had from one night I ran out of food and just ran to gas station. Well he got sick from it so we wont ever try to run out of the iams food again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Puppy seems to like it [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My puppy immediately ran to his bowl to "taste test" as soon as he heard the Iams hit it. He really seems to like it. I like that it isn't smelly like some other brands I've tried. Also, it doesn't seem to have the greasy feel others do. The size of the pellets are good too. Not too big for a little guy and not tiny and messy.

I love knowing that he is getting all the nutrition he needs. This is super important during the first year of his life. He is always excited to get his smart food from Iams.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nourish your pup with Iams! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I adopted my puppy from a shelter and first used the cheapest brand dog food. I started to notice that his coat did not shine as much and it was thinning. My vet told me that it was just sensitive skin and to bathe him with special and pricey dog shampoo sold to us by the vet. That still did not help. BzzAgent recently sent me Iams® ProActive Health™ dog food so I decided to throw out his cheaper brand dog food and feed him Iams. I realized his old food had too much corn in it and was causing his rashes. After I switched him to Iams Proactive Health, Smart Puppy dog food, I discovered that he loved it and his coat is getting its shine back. I suspect within the next few weeks his coat will get ticker, indicting that he is now a healthy dog. I figured out that Iams is actually affordable and it looks like it's helping him get back to being a healthy, happy pup!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Iams ProActive Health Smart Puppy Food [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have a puppy & she was not eating dry food well. We got her from a friend that bottle feed her until 8 weeks. I was so surprised how fast she went to eating Iams dry puppy food. Now she is going to an Iams pup for life. She LOVES the Iams ProActive Health Smart Puppy Original! Thank you Iams for the awesome puppy food!
