Iams Healthy Inside, Healthy Outside

30 Apr

Iams ProActive Health – Review and Giveaway!
“Healthy inside, Healthy outside”

Giveaway closed! Thank you and congrats to the winner!

Meet Zeus. Zeus is our family dog, a 3 year old 110lb Fawn Doberman Pinscher. His breed is rare but it’s his personality that makes him ours. He’s a great pet, loyal and loving. Although, at times he can be a little crazy by mudding up the house, barking at the mailman/neighbourhood kids or whining to no end, we still love him. He’s our Zeus & we wouldn’t trade him for anything, he’s truly a special member of this family.
As a member of our family he not only deserves love and attention but he also deserves the best food and nutrition. Our only problem: finding a good quality dog food Zeus both enjoys and is healthy for him!

He is picky about his food, we haven’t found a quality brand he enjoys – he will eat what he’s offered but you can tell he’s thinking “yuck”. There are so many different brands of dogfood out there from store brands to the more expensive brands, there is a difference in the ingredients so read the health information on bags of dog food you purchase carefully to find out what exactly your dog is eating. Certain foods are made for certain types of dogs, ages and breeds. Zeus had the opportunity to try out a new type of dog food – Iams ProActive Health!

Iams has come out with a new type of dog food called Iams ProActive Health. Iams ProActive Health formula has PreBiotics which work inside the digestive tract to promote healthy digestion and strong defenses.”Healthy inside. Healthy outside.”

There are different formulas for every dog – large breed, mature, puppy, small breed etc. We picked up a *bag formulated for large breed dogs*

Zeus took to the food as he does any new food – with precaution. He hesitated on trying something new but after a few attempts we got him eating it! He usually eats once a day, out of his very LARGE dog food bowl, half a bowl usually around the same time we have supper. With the other brands we noticed he wasn’t eating enough, he always seemed hungry. Now since he’s been on Iams honestly, he’s eating everything in his bowl. So we don’t know if its because he knows its good for him or that it taste good but either way he likes it! So far so good, knowing my dog likes it, will actually eat it and it’s good for him inside and out, I recommend trying Iams Proactive Health for your furry, four legged friend! One feeding tip that can help reduce the stress of introducing a new food to your dog is, mix a little of his old brand with the new brand and generally eliminate the old food, let him introduce himself to the food, don’t push him or make him eat it if he doesn’t want to. Also, make sure to have a fresh bowl of water for fido to wash it down with!

    I want to win this bag of food, since that is the brand I feed,and we all know it’s expensive, especially with three large dogs to feed.

    Our dog, Kia, is a picky eater too and loves her wet food but will leave dry food sit in her bowl for days. If Zeus will eat Iams then I’m hopeful that Kia will too!

    Our yellow lab eats Iams(reduced calorie). She was getting a little chunky and since she’s been on it she’s lost 16 lbs. and is now a svelte 63 lbs. She walks a mile a day and is in great shape!!

    I would love to try this for my dog! My dogs favorite food is (ANYTHING), really,but I would love to try this on him, as he is a old dog,(12 years old) and I think he could use all the healthy nutritious dogfood he could get! This dog food is really expensive also, and would be a good way for me to try it out on him! Thanks!
