What’s the right IAMS® food for my dog?

How do I safely change my dog’s food?

We recommend a 7-day transition. Start by mixing 75% of the old diet with 25% of the new diet for the first two days. On the third and forth days, mix the old and new diets 50/50. By the fifth and sixth day you can feed 75% new diet mixed with only 25% of the old diet. By the seventh day your dog will likely be ready for his or her new diet exclusively. Every dog is different, so be sure to pay attention to your dog’s progress and adjust the transition if needed.

What nutrients are essential for a healthy skin and coat?

Nutrients such as protein, fat, vitamins, and minerals play important roles in the skin and coat health of dogs. Your dog’s coat is made up almost entirely of protein. Vitamins and minerals important to your dog’s skin include A, E, C, and B2, biotin, zinc, and copper. Without the right quantity and quality of these essential nutrients, your dog’s coat will become dry, weak, and brittle or fall out. Learn More

How are dogs’ nutritional needs different from humans?

Good nutrition is as important to your dog’s health as it is to your own. But your dog’s nutritional needs are quite different from yours! In general, while a good human diet generally is high in fiber and low in fat, a dog needs more fat (for energy and a healthy skin and coat) and less fiber (for good intestinal health).
IAMS® believes dogs are best fed as carnivores because they have simple stomachs and short intestines that are ideal for digesting animal protein and animal fat. Dogs also can use carbohydrates for energy. Learn More

Why does IAMS® put beet pulp in its food?

Beet pulp is an important source of fiber that helps your dog maintain intestinal health and can promote his or her ability to absorb ingredients. Basically, beet pulp is the material that remains after sugar is extracted from sugar beets.
