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.

Large-breed puppies, reaching 51 to 90 lbs. at maturity, should transition to IAMS ProActive Health Large Breed Adult formula at 12 months of age. Giant-breed puppies, over 90 lbs. at maturity, should transition to IAMS ProActive Health Large Breed Adult formula at 24 months of age.

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

Because IAMS ProActive Health Smart Puppy Large Breed food is 100% complete and balanced for large breed puppies, you do not need to add vitamin or mineral supplements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FOR YOUR PUPPY My female German Shepherd has been on this food for about 2 1/2 months and I can see a change in her growth. She has a very sensitive stomach and this food didn't upset. She tends to be very picky with her food and grows tired of it after about 5 weeks, but she has stuck to this IAMS large breed a bit longer! I don't think she'll get sick of this food, you can tell she enjoys it! Thank you IAMS for helping my pup and I!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for Rottweilers I started both of my pups on Iams smart puppy since I have a persian that will not eat any other food. My Rottie pups are gorgeous, have silky smooth coats and never have tummy aches. I highly recommend this food for any dog that is going to be large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only food we feed our puppy We got our Rottweiler puppy when she was only 8 weeks old. The breeder weened the puppies on Iams so we kept her on it. Everyone comments on how beautiful her coat is. She has been gaining 10 lbs per month. I took her to the vet today, she gained 11 1/2 lbs since last month and she's not even 5 months old yet! We feed her the amount recommended on the package and no more. A beautiful coat, bright eyes, beautiful white teeth and 51 1/2 pounds tells me that this is the best for my puppy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puppy Loving Fun I have a 6 month old lab / pitbull mix. Beatiful little thing! Been feeding her purina one healthy puppy. The last two months have been really bad with it. Unknown to us the food is too soft and was getting moldy at the pet store. Even the 13 year old sheperd lab i have that will eat anything wouldnt touch it. Poor little pup kept getting sick, wasnt growing fast. 2 weeks ago we started switching her off her special diet of boiled chicken and rice. We started Iams Smart Puppy. Withing 2 days we noticed the difference in her livelyhood. She is back to normal running like crazy, barking at everything, jumping, and wrestling with the aheperd lab. Thanks Iams!!!! This pup got me out of a major depression. Iams brought my baby back to life! It brought me back to life! Will never use another brand again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied Pet owner Using IAMS for 20+ Years I have been using Iams products since 1993. At first I used Eukanuba, but as time went on I switched to Iams, as there isn't a whole lot of a difference in the ingredients, and things such as glucosamine and chronditin that are in the puppy formulas of Eukanuba can easily be supplemented with a small pill for alot less. Every dog and cat that I have had and was/is on Iams has a slick, healthy, shiny coat. As soon as I took any of my pets off of Iams to try such foods as "Nutro Max, now know as MAX", you'd see a difference in their coats within a few days. Iams tends to help control shedding in those breeds with heavy coats. ALL of my pets that were on Iams lived long, healthy lives, and those that are still with me are going strong. Those that I had before using Iams didn't live as long, weren't as healthy, and their coats didn't have that shine. I just put down my 14 yr old GSD. She was in perfect health other than for the osteoarthritis that comes with the territory. 2 months before I put her down, all of her blood came back perfect and within range, as we had to keep an eye on her liver values. She was also on 1500mg of Glucosamine and MSM with 1000 mg of fish oil (she always had a somewhat dry coat - was just the way she was built) daily. I contribute her health and the health of all of my pets to this food. For those of you who know GSDs, 14 years with one of them is exceptional and a gift! People seem to think that the more expensive the food, the better it is. Alot of these newer brands have way too much protein in them. Especially for cats, and if you have a cat with kidney issues, those more expensive foods will contribute to renal failure and cause your pet to have to be placed on veterinary prescribed foods quicker, and they're not cheap. Pets tend to not like those veterinary foods and will literally STARVE before they eat it. I started using Iams products before they were in found in the grocery stores. At one time, the only place you could find Iams was in a high end pet store, and this was before Petco and PetSmart. By popular demand, it was put into some grocery stores and Walmart and such. Don't let anyone tell you that Iams isn't a good quality food or that it's a "grocery store" brand food. I was using it WAY BEFORE it was put into the grocery store, and to be honest, it made my life a bit easier not having to travel to the high end pet store to feed my pets. I swear by this brand.
