These guideline amounts are a starting point and your dog may need more food depending on 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 dog per day to get the actual portion size per feeding.

Remember to have clean, fresh water available for your dog at all times.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DISCONTINUED this product was discontinued a few weeks ago. I have 4 large dogs that have always eaten this food (12+yrs) our oldest has a sensitive stomach which is why we started this food in the first place ...we had tried everything & this is the only thing he tolerated. devestated to have to search for something new now that he is almost 13yrs old. I guess since Royal Canin has bought Iams they do not feel this is a big enough seller :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Is this product discontinued? I agree with Heeter's comment below; the few places I can find the regular Adult food, the price is severely marked up - I assume to dwindling supply. If you cared about our dogs, you'd clear up the supply issue, and if it's discontinued, give us time to smoothly transition our dogs over to some other product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Getting hard to find Have bought this food for years, our pup has a sensitive stomach and even though he's the right age for the "senior" mix, this is literally the only dog food he can eat without getting sick. But we're starting to have a hard time finding it, every store near us seems to have stopped carrying it. IAMS, this isn't being discontinued, is it?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste for Shih tzu and just the right size Been the best tasting IAMS for our dog of 14 years. A limp in her front leg, then a vet visit, and Glucosamine and Chondroition was ordered. IAMS was the answer. We are seeing her being more active, has an interest in her toys and cleans up her food.
