Our little Lucy is a bundle of energy and curiosity. Make no mistake about it, the last time we went to go see our vet, she asked me, “Doesn’t Lucy know she’s not supposed to be a puppy anymore?”
Even though Lucy is turning 6, she is a spry little one. But as she gets older, we do see that after walks, she’s ready for a serious nap.
When Iams® approached me about switching from our current mainstream pet food, I had to think about it… mess around with my dog’s food?
Even though Iams dog food products are backed by years of research about the best kind of nutrition for dogs, I had to wonder what kind of changes would we see in Lucy. Would changing to Iams really make that much of a difference?
Before switching, I read up that dogs who have switched to Iams quality dog food have shown signs of improved health in their coats and skin, healthy digestion and overall energy levels. Hmmm…. you hear that Lucy? Well, apparently she did.
Before we moved her to Iams, Lucy was often scratching her back against the carpeting. I could see the dry flakes coming off of her skin. I mean, if I can’t get lotion on every day, my skin itches and it drives me crazy! How was she feeling.
After several weeks, her skin seems to be so much better… the scratching has died down. Those white flakes aren’t apparent anymore either. And just take a look at her coat. I may be just a proud doggy mama, but I think she’s beautiful!
We’ve also been upping Lucy’s walks. Normally we walk her around, but lately it’s like she’s got an extra spring in her step. Instead, my son has been jogging during her walk. She comes back happy, panting away.
You’d think she’d be ready for a nap… but nope! She shows up with her rope, ready for us to throw it so she can pounce on it. Could it be the Iams Visible Differences? I think so.
And the last thing I’ve noticed about Lucy? Well… her poop has changed. You know how when you eat healthier, your poop reflects all of that good fiber and whatnot? The same has happened for Lucy. And this is one thing I hadn’t really thought about it. But you just can’t argue with the poop!
Just a heads up… before you move your dog to a new food, always follow these guidelines on how to successfully transition your dog to a new food. Your dog may not do well going cold turkey with a new dog food, so being conscious of transitioning your pooch is a good idea.
Are you ready to try out Iams and see the difference?
