Strong muscles: With high quality animal protein and essential minerals to help maintain strong muscles; However, it is a little deeper than this. Large breeds can grow too fast, resulting in weaker bones and joints, so the nutrient levels in dog food for specific sizes of puppies are actually adjusted to help prevent things like rapid growth. From the beginning in 1946, Paul F.Iams sought out new ways to create premium, quality pet food that would help give cats and dogs healthy, active and happy lives.Passionate about your furry friends, Paul believed the only way to provide the best possible food and pet care products was to understand cats and dogs better than anyone else in the industry.By spending time with breeders and nutritionists, he learned the importance of proteins and the role of fat in pet food diets.He was the first to consider cats and dogs primarily as carnivores, a perception which was to revolutionise the whole of the pet food industry.Taking in all that he learnt, Paul created his first small batch of dog food, Batch 999 in 1946, which he defined to be 99.9% close to perfection.It was everything he believed in and it set a new standard for pet food; advanced nutrition to make a substantive difference to the health and vitality of pets.This belief has become the basis for innovation after innovation. We also see that the food contains Fish Meal (source of fish oil) and Fish Oil (preserved with mixed Tocopherols, a source of Vitamin E). Fish meal is a good source of protein and omega-3 fatty acid. Likewise fish oil is also a good source of omega-3 fatty acid. Omega-3 is good for your dog’s skin and coat, among other things. These ingredients do contain DHA which, as Iams mentions, is good for your puppy’s brain development. Iams uses ethoxyquin in their veterinary formulas and they appear to use it in their fish meals, though it is not listed on the label. (Source: http://www.iams.com/pet-health/dog-article/understanding-ethoxyquin) We aim to be as flexible as possible when it comes to your easy-repeat deliveries and you can update the following information at any point.

When feeding your large or giant breed puppy it is recommended that you feed him several small meals per day instead of a one or two large meals. This will help him manage his meals and digest his food better. Top 5 Ingredients Breakdown The food contains the natural sweetener Fructooligosaccharides which is 30 to 50 percent as sweet as other commercial sweeteners/syrups. It is usually derived from fruits and vegetables but it can come from grains and cereals. Dogs don’t really need sugar added to their diet. However, fructooligosaccharides (FOS for short) has some other benefits. It’s becoming popular as a prebiotic, for example, helping to increase gastrointestinal health. According to some sources, it may also help prevent yeast infections. According to some studies, FOS, together with inulin (which is not present in this particular dog food) promotes the absorption of calcium in animals (and in people). The microflora in the lower gut is able to ferment FOS which leads to a reduced pH. Since calcium is more soluble in acidic conditions, the intestines are better able to digest foods that contain calcium and transfer it to the bloodstream. FOS can also be considered a small dietary fiber with a low caloric value.

Supplemented levels added at time of manufacture; Sensory Additives: Calcium: 1.0%, phosphorus: 0.78%, DHA 0.17%; Nutritional Additives: None stated. Richardson, Skeletal diseases of the growing dog: Nutritional influences and the role of diet, Canine Hip Dysplasia: A Symposium Held at Western Veterinary Conference, 1995 ↩ Our large-breed puppy formulas have adjusted calcium and phosphorus levels at a correct ratio to match the needs of rapidly growing large-breed puppies. The rumors that large- and giant-breed puppies need extra calcium are untrue! Excess calcium has been shown in several studies to increase the chances of developmental bone problems. Plus, puppies cannot control intestinal absorption of calcium as well from diets containing high levels. “Our large breed diets are formulated with 0.8 to 0.9% calcium and 0.7% phosphorus which is deliberately less than the amounts in all of our other puppy foods.” Whatever age your dog is, IAMS will cater for it with their puppy, adult and senior ranges, while IAMS large breed dog food supports different sizes of dogs.
