These guideline amounts are a starting point and your puppy may need more food depending upon age, activity, and temperament. In order to reach optimal body condition, you may need to adjust food intake. This represents the total recommended volume of food per day. You should divide the total recommended feeding amount by the number of times you feed your puppy per day to get the actual portion size per feeding.

Remember to have clean, fresh water available for your puppy at all times.

This formula is recommended for pregnant and nursing dogs.

During the last three weeks of gestation, increase feeding amounts by 25 to 50%. During lactation, feed as much as she wants (usually two to five times the guideline amount, depending on litter size).

Because IAMS Puppy Small Breed is complete and balanced, you do not need to add vitamin or mineral supplements.

When introducing IAMS Puppy food, gradually mix it with your puppy's current food over the course of 4 days.

SAFE HANDLING TIPS FOR ANY PET FOODS AND TREATS: Please wash your hands before and after handling any pet food or treat. Wash pet food bowls with soap and hot water after each use.

Replace 1/2 cup for each 1/2 can of IAMS Puppy with Chicken and Rice (375 g can). *test

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor Packaging I agree with abbysmom regarding the packaging. It is almost impossible to read the amounts to feed my puppy. The food itself is well accepted. She does love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for puppies My 8 week old miniature schnauzer was having very loose stools with the cheap food the breeder recommended us to give. I bought this IAMS and by the second feeding his stool was a lot better. No upset stomach and no loose stools. Highly recommend this food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cannot Read Packaging_Poor Colors Please change the coloring on the package. I could not read white letters on yellow bag. I had to pull the ingredients up on the internet. When transitioning my puppy to IAMS Smart Puppy the first night, she picked through the old food to eat only IAMS. She loved it and the size is perfect for my Yorkie-Chon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Be warned! I have been buying the small bags of Iams for my new cockapoo puppy. He was really happy with this and had no problems with his stomach. However, I have since bought a really large bag, only to find that the pieces are larger. My puppy will not touch them! They bag cost £26 so it isnt cheap. I feel as though Ive been duped. Why are the pieces larger I would like to know?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great small breed puppy food This review would be 5 stars if the feeding recommendations were easier to read. Small, white lettering on the side of the bag just doesn’t work well. I have to turn the lights in the kitchen up as bright as they go and then find a pair of reading glasses in order to be able to read them. I like the rest of the bag design and the food itself smells good (to me) and my Yorkshire Terrier loves it! It has quality ingredients and when my puppy is older, I will definitely choose Iams small breed adult food.
