If you’re like me and your dog is not just a “dog” but a member of your family unit- okay she’s not quite a kid- but you swear sometimes when she looks at you, it’s like she can read your mind–and I swear to this- my dog and I sing together- and like me you want to lavish your pooch with toys and treats and healthy foods well then you are reading the PERFECT POST!Â I’m all about spoiling my Shih Tzus Mellie and Lazer- who are both my ever faithful companions- nuzzling at my toes as I sit here and type this; they are my little buddies and the best part-is they never says NO … to anything!
So the real question is WHAT SETS Iams So Good apartÂ from all the other dog foods out there? The surprising truth is that some leading dog food brands add ingredients that donâ€™t necessarily contribute to a dogâ€™s health and well being. IAMSÂ newest line of dog food â€“ So Good! â€“is made with 100% wholesome ingredients and no added sugars, dyes or artificial preservatives.
Some leading dog food brands, like Pedigree, Beneful, Dog Chow and Kibbles ‘n Bits, may add things like Red Dye #40 or corn syrup. And so Iams is asking dog owners, “What’s Really in Your Bowl? to give them the facts about what ingredients are in some of the other leading brands so they can decide if they want added sugar, dyes or artificial preservatives in their dog’s bowl ( AND BOY I AM SO GLAD they are doing this!!)
One of the ways we show our dogs our love for them is so poignantly captured in this Iams So Good commercial below!
Dog owners can show their love by feeding So Good! to their best friend â€“ a tasty food that includes protein-packed chicken, veggies, fruit and crunchy kibbles.
