    Default Iams dogfood

    Just wondering what thoughts are on Iams dogfood. I've always fed my dogs this and they do good with it. Just making sure it's a good food to be feeding them.

    Hello and to EBN. We have a dog food ratings article that you should look at and make a decision based on the info.

    Are you babies having any isues at all... soft , scratching, ear problems, stinky odor, licking -- if yes, then you may need to change foods.

    I feed Fromm Pork and Peas, been through a list of foods before finding the right one for my two babies.

    Welcome! The words above should definitely be taken into consideration. I feed Fromm's Beef Frittata to my guy and his stools have hardened up.

    I have two labs that do really well on iams. The problem is we are dealing with bulldogs that have many allergies. I was feeding Brutus iams also and he tolerated it ok, I made the choice to switch him to Merrick buffalo and sweetpotato grain free. I did notice a big difference in Brutus. His coat was soft and silky, his gas was tolerable, and his poops are nice and formed and less of it. So while I think iams is ok I think for bulldogs there is better. This is just my opinion coming from someone who uses iams. Labs have a constitution of steel.

    Default Iams dogfood

    With regards to iams i dont know what quality of food this is but iams (eukanuba) do test on animals (look up iams eukanuba animal testing) and im not going to fill the pockets of a company that test on animals or used to test on thats stopped thanks to pets-dogs included

    But that is my own opinion
    I try to feed the best on my budget and often there are smaller companies that offer high meat content and grain free than the commercial companies
    Great advice was already given on a dog food rating

    Like everyone has said, it's nit that bad, but there are better out there. Check out the food rating list and see what you think.

    My breeder told me not to give my bulldog Iams because it was hard for them to digest. The pet store where I buy the Royal Canine Bulldog food was closed one evening and I bought a small bag of Iams at the grocery store. Daisy Mae my bulldog, broke out almost immediately in hives about the size of quarters all over. I gave it to her again the next morning and the same thing happened so I know it was the food. Never again!

    Bulldogs do best on grain free, corn free, soy & soybean oil free and sometimes
    have to go potato free as prone to yeast.

    TOTW Grain Free is cost effective at 30 lbs for $45 and can be found at Tractor
    Supply & other stores. I use their buffalo & venison and Cami does well.

    Sister's dogs were on Iam's and did well (not bulldogs) but had awful gas!

    Good luck & GOD bless!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Agreed it's not the best of foods, however some dogs thrive well on not so great food...if it's working for your dog with no problems, then I personally wouldn't change it, these dogs can have so many issues that the saying "if it's not broke, don't fix it" really does apply...if he is having issues there are lots of foods out there to experiment with, I feed Tractor supply grain free 4health, its 36 dollars for 30lbs and Ollie does well on it!
