Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing My dog went thru 6 different food before my vet recommended using this. The absolute difference it has made is amazing. He can't have anything but this dog food, gets colitis at a drop of a hat. I am super upset this is being discontinued because I am afraid my dog will go thru this whole thing again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeping my dogs healthy My now 8 year old lab was diagnosed with pancreatitis just over a year ago and was immediately prescribed this. My vet said that my dog might not have to be on this food forever, but when I tried to slowly ween him off of it, he would get a flare up from the pancreatitis. I knew then he would be a lifer on this food. Today, he is great shape! Healthy lean weight, shiny coat, lots of energy. He loves the taste of the food too (not at first because started with the canned intestinal plus, which he loved). Totally recommend this food to dogs with stomach issues, my dog is regular and happy with a strict diet of only intestinal plus.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Dog Food I received a five dollar off coupon and decided to use it on Iams dog food. We purchased the proactive health for adults. Our dog dislikes most dry dog foods (we spoil her), but she ate it. It seemed like a decent dog food. Still not sure of how "healthy" these foods are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good ! For about 6-9months our malshi was having constipation issues. Didn't want to eat his other regular food and we tried so many natural ways to help him. (Pure pumpkin, wetting his dry food, adding chicken broth, adding wet food mixed with the dry food, other low res food and laxitves) things would work for a short while 1-2 weeks and then stop again. We eventually figured out that he had a hernia type pouch in his colon from an enlarged prostate. We got his prostate removed and then tried a low res food. He didn't like the other brand who was more expensive. So our vet recommend this low res along with the wet can low res food. Mixed together and with some meds called lactose. It's been a month or so and we have seen improvement ! He went from literally visiting the vet every week to treat his constipation, having lots of anexity about going for walks, not wanting to eat and occasionally vomiting to acting like our regular dog again. We are so grateful to have found this food! I hope this continues to work in our favour and he continues to improve as our next move would be surgery consultation :(. I definitely reccomend giving this a try for at least a month!
