That's because Iams is the parent company of Eukanuba which Mars company bought from Proctor & Gamble back in 2014

You want to avoid any peas, legumes, pulses and potato's. Peas are the most suspect in what I have been seeing. ppp does have dogs with low taurine levels. I would really put that in the watch out for list. Maybe some varieties don't have the suspect foods. I would check the ingredients. On the wsava list or not, we already know their is an issue with those ingredients. That is just my opinion. Hills also has a few varieties with peas in it to. Best to be safe

I have read the info on the Facebook page until my eyes bled. Trying to wrap my head around feeding foods with one meat source and lots of corn. Good luck to all of us.

Agreed. It is so overwhelming and confusing. And companies seem to contradict themselves. I'm part of the FB group and they all seem to feed PPP, royal canin, the ones recommended by researchers and I am afraid to ask questions as to why for instance Purina has peas as number 3 ingredient in some of their foods, while they say this is suspect ingredient, yet they recommend it. It is maddening. I'm down to the wire now with deciding on food bc our new puppy is coming home Saturday much to our surprise bc our breeder had an unexpected pup available. My breeder is feeding the puppies PPP Focus adult which is for adults and not all life stages which confuses me. I will ask when we pick her up. My head is spinning with all the info out there.

Debbie, don't fret or panic just because there puppy is coming home Saturday (OMG tomorrow!) Because no matter what, you will be feeding what the puppy is eating now for the first 2 weeks and then you can start the switch to what you decide on.
So you have time still.

Edit:
Also do NOT feed an all life stages food. By definition that is a small breed puppy food. The small breed dog has the highest nutritional and energy requirements and therefore it has excesses for a large breed puppy. Not to mention you are only feeding more or less of the same food and vitamins, not the different levels a puppy needs compared to an adult dog.

Just on update on our journey. Duke and Rocky are doing well on Royal Canin Rabbit. Charlie doesnít like it so Iíve resorted to adding 2 patties of Stella and Chewyís rabbit. I think weíre going to have to find another food for Charlie unfortunately. Iím actually considering Purina Pro Plan Salmon and Rice. Itís a higher calorie food though and he needs to lose weight, not gain it....

Iíve finally wrapped my mind around this is a journey and itís not a situation where you find one food and youíre done. That being said, I donít want to keep switching them either.
