      I changed to Iams Chicken when my dogs quit eating Purina. I went to Iams and my 13-year old Shepherd eats again. He had lost 20 pounds but now with canned food added, has gained some back.

      Flame and his brother Musashi are now 12 years young. We usually feed them a good cat food they like. My husband brought home as a treat several cans of IAMS Purrfect Delicacies cat food. They went crazy for it. Licked their plate so clean you wouldn't know it was ever used. We would switch them to IAMS but we are on a fixed income and it cost over $1.09 for 1 small 2.47 oz. can.

      I JUST recently purchased Iams dog food last week on January 19, 2015 for my red nose pitbull. He was doing fine with Pedigree and then I decided to switch his food because my dog trainer told me so. After purchasing the food and feeding him it I thought he like it but I was wrong, he has been throwing up and has had diarrhea issues since. I don't know what Iams can do but if I somehow lose my dog because of this food I will sue!

      When I purchased my dog, she was being fed this food. She could hardly breath and we were told she had a lifelong breathing issue by the seller. After switching her food, to a much higher quality one, her symptoms disappeared. She is now extremely healthy at 13 years old and we couldn't be happier that we made the switch when we did.

      I am glad to see IAMS working on some better quality formulas. Moral of the story, just because your dog looks like they are doing well on a low quality food, doesn't mean they are doing well internally. Foods like these are the reasons dogs are only living to be 10 years old. If you switch a dog's food, you have to do it slowly (14 days or more) or YES they will get diarrhea, it's a normal part of switching foods.

      I have been feeding Iams to my Rottweiler and Pomeranian for 6 months and didn't think we had a problem. My Rottweiler had been itching badly recently and had no fleas or other reason to be itching, the vet stated he probably was having an allergy. We purchased a new bag of Iams puppy food on Monday Jan 5, 2015. I started feeding this food to both dogs on Tuesday before work. When I came home from work my Rottweiler was having trouble breathing, he was holding his head high and would not relax, I contacted the after hours vet and we rushed him there. He didn't make it through the night, he had a severe reaction to something and it caused him to not be able to breathe and his lungs filled with fluid. I truly believe after reading all these reviews that it was the Iams dog food, I will never use this brand again. They can never replace the animal that I lost, he was part of our family, an inside pet, just a baby. He had horrible gas, itching, foaming at the mouth, and then passed away. Our Pomeranian was doing a lot of coughing that same day after eating the food, he is stronger and much older than my Rott was, so he is going to be ok as we are not feeding the food anymore.

      Fostering animals for an animal rescue organization or humane society can be expensive, so holding down costs while maintaining quality is a balancing act. I've been able to do it well with Iams Kitten and Iams Adult for the cats in my care. I am always bombarded by various pet food manufacturers with giveaway samples and coupons to pass out to our adopters, and I do pass those items on, but when an adopter asks me what I've been feeding the kitty, I always say that they have always thrived on Iams. Just looking at their shiny, smooth coats are testimony to the fact that the cats in my care have done well during their stay. I just wish Iams had a program for people like us.

      I have a nine-year-old mixed large breed who has been with me since he was 12 weeks old. I also have a 16-year-old Parson's Terrier who has been with me since she was 8 weeks old. They have been fed Iams almost exclusively. A couple of times, I sampled other brands, but they did not care for them as much as Iams. Currently, my big boy eats the 9+ years formula in the blue bag and my little girl eats the 11+ years formula in the blue bag. Through the years they have eaten each of the stage-of-life formulae that Iams offers, and they have never had any problems. On the occasions when I switched to other pricier brands, my dogs didn't care for them as much, so I switched back. I'll be placing online orders for more Iams as soon as I finish this review.

      My dog and my landlord's dog have had nothing but problems since I tried your Weight Control dry dog food. They have both starting chewing their hind ends and my dog her tail so bad that it's bleeding. Both have had horrible gas and they were only eating it for 2 and a half days. Both dogs had immediate reactions, all bad. But I didn't think it was the dog food at first, but with both of them being healthy dogs with no pre existing skin problems, fleas or other parasites, the only thing different in their lives was the dog food. I quit feeding it to the both of them after 2 days and went back to their regular dog food which is not one of your products. They are both still chewing because of the dry skin in the area but nothing like the two days while they were being fed the Iams dog food. Oh and did I mention the horrible gas they both had? Your products should be further tested before being sold to the public and not tested on innocent animals who have no voice in the matter.

      We have been feeding our 7-month-old puppy Lucy Iams since we have had her. She loves it. She can hardly wait when we open the bag. We started feeding our older dog Iams too. Awesome product with great ingredients. Would definitely recommend!

      I have a lab mix 3 month old puppy that we got a few days before Christmas. We have had multiple experiences with different kinds of food brands. Our Chihuahua used Mighty Dog wet food the whole 14 yrs that we had her until she passed away and our 2 yr old beagle/dach changed from Pedigree to Blue Buffalo. Our 2 cats are using Friskies and none of the brands has caused problems with any of our fur babies until now with Iams.

      A few days after we brought our new fur baby home we took her to the vet for her first shots and was told she was healthy. We were originally feeding her Puppy Chow from Dollar General that we already had and she ran out so while at Wal-Mart I remembered she was out of food so I looked for something that would be good for her. I remembered the vet told me about Iams being really good for dogs so I grabbed a 15 lb bag. I gave it to her and about 2 to 3 hours later she puked it all up and began to have diarrhea. I thought the puking was because I either fed her too much or because I had changed her from one brand to another but then the diarrhea started and then it became bloody. I then remembered that the diarrhea and puking didn't start until after I gave her the Iams food.

      She has been sick for hours and after thinking hard about what it could be I realized that dogs could have problems with some brands so I looked up the reviews and I am shocked as to how many bad reviews there are for this dog food. I will be taking her off of Iams and I will never buy it again. We will be putting her back on Puppy Chow or Blue Buffalo and I would like a refund for the Iams.

      We started her on the Iams Woof Delights about a month ago. Slowly started her over on it. Was fine for the first week and after that, vomiting for three days straight now and runny stools. As I see from this forum looks like y'all @ Iams have a big problem on your hands. Something is truly wrong with this food. I have 16 unopened containers heading back to Petsmart today for exchange! Last time for this product--back to white rice pumpkins and chicken for a little while. Pray I have caught this in time!

      We have been feeding our cats IAMS exclusively for 12 years (The hairball & weight control one is their favorite). Our cats have been happy with the product up until recently. We purchased a large bag and filled up the cats' containers for them to eat while we were away for the weekend. When we returned, the cats had "pulled" all of the food out of the container and pushed it onto the floor. They hadn't eaten any of it. To test the product, we offered the food to the outdoor feral cats and they also wouldn't touch it. We purchased a new bag and both sets of cats were ok again.

      I have a six year old Chihuahua and her name is Tinkerbelle. She has been healthy and happy. I have always given my dog Chef Michael's dog food and she loves it. We never had an issue with it. I ran out of the brand she normally eats and the store also ran out so I purchased Iams because the store clerk said it was a great brand. That evening I gave it to my dog and within a few hours she began to have diarrhea and she began to vomit and have seizures. I took her to the vet and her sudden onset of seizures could not be explained. She was given medicine for seizures and vomiting and diarrhea and was sent home where she was made comfortable but was not the same dog for several days. Once again I ran out of Chef Michael's and was not at home so my daughter gave her the Iams dog food that was in the back of the closet. Once again she began to have the vomiting and the seizures but this time she had blood in her stool and she kept foaming at the mouth. I don't know what is in the dog food but it is unsafe and it should be pulled off of the shelves.

      We have been feeding Iams Healthy Naturals to our 3 dogs for about 4 months. We bought a new 12.5 lb bag last week and they all three had a serving. One of our dogs is a corgi and twice the size of the other two so she gets a bit more and also is notorious for snagging from the other bowls. That night she woke us up in the middle of the night crying. She went outside and pooped repeatedly. We just thought she had a tummy ache. Later that afternoon she started having diarrhea so we picked up their food. We went out for a bit and one of our kids called and said she had made a "MESS" in the living room. We hurried home and she did it again on our way home. She was VERY embarrassed and had horrible gas.

      We decided to switch all three dogs to rice and chicken for a couple days thinking there may be a flu bug. It cleared up almost immediately. Two days later not suspecting Iams having not had a problem and not finding any recall information we decided to try it again. Our Corgi turned her head to it. We thought she wanted the chicken and rice and was being picky. That night HORRIBLE gas started from both our other dogs and today both have diarrhea. This time I decided to search consumer affairs rather than a simple recalled search. I find this appalling that this many people in the last two months have had the same experience. But NO recall. We will NEVER buy anything Iams ever again...

      I am a huge dog lover. Every dog I've owned has been on Iams. It works with our 9 year old lab, and 3 year old husky. And it doesn't break our bank to feed them. Being a military family it's hard to find great quality dog foods that aren't over $60. And both our dogs enjoy it, even Titan our husky who went from barely eating to eating all in one sitting! I have never owned a dog who doesn't love Iams! Great dog food and company!

      I rescued a baby kitten and wanted to feed her good quality food. We tried a couple of foods before trying Iams. She loved the delight dinners. My older cats eat dry food and I fed all the cats the delight dinner to introduce them to each other without stress. They all love it.

      Four days after eating Iams dry dog food my Maltese was in great pain. He is seven years old and has always had Little Caesar and Purina dry food without any problems. This morning we went to the Vet and had x-rays and blood work done to the tune of $317.00. He was so bloated with gas he cried when the Vet touched his stomach. The abnormal amount of gas caused an inflammation in his liver which you could see on the X-rays. Needless to say he will never be fed Iams again and I have him on meds now and hopefully he will recover. I am retired, on a meager pension and I would like to be reimbursed for my Vet bill.

      We have used Iams Minichunks for years, and with our one dog getting older and our other dog needing to lose a couple pounds, we switched to Iams ProActive Health Mature Adult. Since then, our one dog has had a major increase in very unpleasant gas. Very. It is getting worse, too--more frequent and pungent. He doesn't get table food, so it's not that. It makes me wonder how much discomfort the poor guy is in.

      We have fed this to our Shar-Pei since he was born, no other food and no scraps. I am thrilled to say he turns 16 years old this Dec 2014. The life span of Shar-Pei's is around 9 years, so when we are getting 16 years out of him, I attribute this to good dog food along with good vet care. He is in good shape other than his legs, his back legs are starting to fail him due to arthritis. I do believe in good dog food. I have evidence in my dog's health and longevity. I would recommend this dog food to any dog owner that wants to give them good health and long life. Thank you Iams!

      We have two dogs and I have been feeding them Iams Pro Active Adult Mini Chunks for years. We bought a new bag on Saturday November 16 and I came home yesterday to the most revolting smells and sights. We keep them crated during the day bad both dogs were violently ill with diarrhea yesterday and have been sick since. The only thing to change is the bag of food. I will be disposing of this bag but unsure I will/should purchase another bag. I am very concerned and disappointed.

      After 5 years having my Dachshund on the expensive brand Blue Buffalo I decided to switch to Iams while transitioning a Lab puppy into my home this past May. My lab struggled to settle her stomach on Blue, and Science Diet so we tried IAMS Pro Active Health original. After the first week of some tummy aches, mixing IAMS with some white rice and chicken we finally settled her stomach and didn't have any issues going forward and I thought IAMS was a good fit. My vet was even excited when I told her that was the brand we decided on. Last month I purchased a new big bag from Target, the next my dachshund couldn't keep her food down and was also experiencing bad diarrhea. 12 hours later the same thing continued with my Lab. I figured I would give IAMS the benefit of a doubt and decided to go grab a smaller bag just to see if things subsided.

      I had to throw my large $27 brand new bag away and we continued with small amounts of a new bag of IAMS and chicken and rice for a week or so. This past Saturday it was time to purchase a new bag so I did. Again, a large bag, another $27. Needless to say I was up all night with my Lab. After throwing up all of what she had eaten at night, she continued to spit up throughout the night, and at 4:30 in the morning she started with Diarrhea. I am certain that it is the food. The first time I figured she may have just gotten into something but for it to happen now twice, to both of my dogs at some point, when purchasing a new bag something is wrong, not to mention I am now out $60 worth of dog food that I have had to throw away.

      I purchased IAMS Woof Delights Chicken & Vegetable Medley wet dog food at Kroger in Nashville 11/13/14. It was full of a really bad smelling, greasy, oily, gray slurry with a white slurry swirled through the top layer. Lot# is 29 Nov 2015 DS1 4149719512. This product should be recalled immediately!

      I just wanted to let everyone know that I have found out that the Iams dog food has caused my two dogs and another friend's dog to have diarrhea and get a bacteria infection. I loved iams dog food. Our dogs have been on it for almost three years. It's been great till now. And I'm very sad that it is causing them to be sick. I hope the company can figure something out.

      I have fed my dogs lams dog food for years. LITERALLY ALL THEIR LIVES AND THEY ARE 9 & 10! I never had a issue with my dogs being ill. I purchased a LARGE 23.2 lbs bag of healthy naturals before going out of town for 5 days and my LIVE IN DOG SITTER with whom my dogs are VERY FAMILIAR said it smelled like bad oil when she opened it.. They would not eat it at first, which she attributed to my being out of town. So she added 1/2 can each of tuna packed in water to their food for three days to encourage eating. On the fourth day, they were both very lethargic and "coughing" she said, and they started chewing themselves incessantly and whining. I got home to two very sick dogs... smelled the food and recoiled. IT was RANCID. Target won't refund me -- it's not expired so I think you should know this product is disgusting.

      I have been feeding my 3 year old German Shepherd Iams Pro Active Adult Mini Chunks for the past year and a half, since we moved to Canada. He seemed to be doing fine on this brand until a couple of months ago. He started having intermittent diarrhea. I initially put this down to him sometimes having our leftovers. I cut out the human food and feed him exclusively on his own food to rule out any trouble with human food.

      I purchased a new bag of Iams Pro Active Adult Mini Chunks last week and since then the diarrhea returned. Yesterday he started bloody diarrhea. He is currently in the vet's having tests and stool samples done. Our vet has suggested that he may have contracted salmonella poisoning from his food. Please people do not feed this toxic product to you animals. P&G please investigate this product and withdraw it if necessary before any more of our animals get sick or worse die! Please do not offer me any coupons as I will never buy any of your products again.

      I switched to Iams cat food, thinking I was doing a good thing, and wish I'd read the reviews first. My cat threw up every single day while on Iams - sometimes 2-3 times. I did some research and realized it was probably the food I was feeding her so threw it out. She's fine now and isn't throwing up anymore. I'll never buy Iams again.

      Iams Proactive minichunks Adult 1 - 6 years dog food. We have been using Iams for our dogs for years, but we have two new dogs (after the passing of our beloved Roxy). We have been using Iams as always and today, one of our dogs pooped on the kitchen floor and our other dog pooped in my son's room. Both dogs are house-trained and we have never had a problem. Their stools are generally nice and firm. However today they had diarrhea, and after cleaning up both accidents, our one dog again had a bout of diarrhea in the house. I am concerned about the Iams especially after reading all of these posts!! Does any know if there is a recall. Please Help!!

      In August 2014 I purchased a bag of the Iams Smart Puppy dry dog food. I fed this to my 4 house dogs. After eating a meal of it the first dog got the diarrhea, then he got bright red bloody diarrhea. I thought maybe he had just gotten into something. He is about a 30 lb. dog. After he got the bloody diarrhea and not eating for approx. 2 days, I changed his food. His stool then turned mucusy and soft. He has dealt with occasional diarrhea for almost a month. The second dog also developed the bloody stool, (bright red blood) then his also changed to a mucusy soft stool. Luckily for him he is about a 20 lb dog. He had not ate as much of the Iams food as the others so I feel it didn't affect him as bad. However bloody stool on carpets for days is not a good thing.

      The third dog that ate the food at the same time as the others happened to be a 2 lb 12 oz Chihuahua. He ate the Iams for 3 days straight as that was his favorite food. Needless to say he also got the bright red bloody diarrhea. It ended up being he was just dripping bright red blood from his intestines. He was no longer having diarrhea, blood was just running out of him. We took him to the vet, told the vet we thought it was tainted food. The vet seemed to think that tainted food was so rare it just couldn't be that!!!!!!! Of course the vet did a Parvo test. It was negative as all my animals have had their boosters. Iams is the only thing that they ate. They are house dogs, not allowed out alone or without supervision, never left home and no one in my home either.

      Well the vet seemed to think that tainted food was just to far fetched to believe. I did take a sample of the food and ask that he test it. He did not. I do still have the sample if someone would like to test it. MY CHIHUAHUA DID NOT MAKE IT!!!! He died at the vets office. Needless to say I am shattered to think that I fed my beloved dog a food that would kill him all the time thinking I was doing something good for him!!!!!!!!! The other dog #4 in the house also came down with the bright red diarrhea and mucusy diarrhea. Her ordeal lasted about two weeks.

      It seems to me these are the symptoms of salmonella poisoning if I read it correctly on the internet. From what I've read once they get salmonella poisoning they are then carriers and can be tested for it. Correct me if I'm wrong on that. However let me explain. I am a multi dog owner. This has managed to spread to some of the other dogs that I have. I have a list of dates, pictures of the stool etc. I have searched high and low for my receipt and the bag the food came in but have been unable to find them. However I am still looking. I do have a sample of what was left of the food if anyone would like to test it!!!!!!!!!!! I will never buy from Iams again!!! This horrible food killed my chihuahua and has made the other dogs very ill. Hopefully this isn't something that they will actually carry thru their lives?????????

      I feel Iams owes me a lot for my Chihuahua (which could never be replaced), the vet expense, plus the other dogs that may now be carriers of something because they ate the tainted food. I have added a pic of the Chihuahua I lost. Picture taken 3 days before his death. I have also uploaded pics of some of the stools. I'm sure I have more!!!!!!!!!!! Feel free to contact me. NO COUPONS PLEASE! They can't replace the animals this food has killed!
