I have been feeding Iams Lamb & Rice to Morgan & Buddy. Was feeding them 4Health large breed formula but it wasn't agreeing with Buddy. They seem to like the Iams & do well on it.

Hey Everyone,

I would HIGHLY recommend that you guys safely switch your dogs off Iams and NEVER go back. Iams killed my mickey with the last recall! Iams food poisoned him, shut down his kidneys and he passed on.

Iams is nothing but fillers; and is not good for your dogs. I would at least feed pedigree if budget is an issue because they haven't killed any pets they are supposed to be feeding lately.

Personally; we feed Lincoln Orijen dog food but we are lucky enough to be in a situation where that is possible. Since the switch from Iams to Orijen Lincoln is doing so well. His poop is always solid and he scarfs it down. Best thing is that it is nutritionally formulated so that he grows slowly for proper joint and bone development; which helps to avoid non-genetic Hip Dysplasia.

This is my personal opinion. I just wanted to share my experiences and losses caused by Iams with my fellow GR lovers; you have the right to know.

As far as Iams is concerned, many feed it with great results. I have along with Eukanuba. And I don't give a hoot what star rating is given by some web site who has an agenda.
I have been feeding Iams cat food to our cats for years ... before Iams we had urinary health problems and have never had any with Iams. At this time wouldn't feed kitties anything else.

I did hear about a Iams recall not long ago but it was on canned. I am not even sure if it was dog or cat food I never looked it up because we only feed dry.

I'm really sorry to hear about what happened to Mickey.

Can you give us some more details? Like which Iams food he was on when he died? Was this during the big melamine recall?

Thank you for your concern.

Mickey was on the dry food I can't tell you which one for sure because it's been so long. It was during the big 2007 Recall. What's worse was that he passed on slowly and it was very, very hard to see him suffer. There was nothing we could do for him at all; no treatments could clean the toxins from his body.

After this second recall I say that this company is clearly being too lax with it's standards and I wouldn't want you guys to lose any of your babies like I lost mine. I still feel angry and sad about it to this day. He was only 4 when he passed on.
