Iams® Sensitive Naturals Adult Dog Food
Our mini Australian Shepherd had scratching and spotting issues from the get go. Of course we bought him the most expensive food on the market and tried different brands and the results did not change. The vet said it was probably allergies but to what he could not say for sure. Someone we know mentioned IAMS sensitive naturals so we tried it. Riley immediately responded and he has had no problems since. It was miraculous.
We then adopted a smooth-coated Border Collie who I again started on the expensive Puppy food (owner guilt). Although her problems were not as bad has Riley's, she also had itching and spotting problems. Naturally I switched her over to the Sensitive Naturals food and it immediately cleared up. As an owner I want to give my dog the best and somehow I equate that with most expensive. They are not the same. So many owners have told me about their dog allergies and I always steer them to Sensitive Naturals.
Since Riley cleared up completely I have tried the Naturals chicken with barley which he tolerated as well. I am very happy with this product line.

Bought for allergy relief
I bought this food to see if it would help my bichon's allergy problems. I guess it has not as they still continue to itch like crazy. The other problem is the original bag of this food they seemed to like. Now they've changed the formula, the kibble shape looks different and it must taste different too. My picky eater refuses to touch this food, and my little piglet who loves everything also refuses to eat this food. This is a first as she LOVES everything. Not sure what they have changed in the formula but my 2 bichons just do NOT like this formula. Maybe they can change it back to the original formula. My dogs liked that better. Although it still did not help the allergies so they must be caused by something other than food.

I can't even believe the difference this food made in my dog's life! After researching online about dogs that chew and scratch and get awful hot spots, I decided to try a few different foods. I went with another brand for quite a while that made a good difference. Then while shopping one day I stumbled across Iams Sensitive Naturals and the price was a fraction of the brand I had been using, so I gave it a shot. There was even a sample sized bag for just a few dollars. WOW. For almost two years now my dog has had zero issues with itching, scratching, chewing, no matter what season of the year it is, and that's without any medications! I'm just sad that two major retailers in my area area suddenly no longer carrying it, and I worry that it is leaving the market. I hope not! This would be devastating. I have recommended this product to two different friends whose dogs also suffers from similar symptoms.

A Life Changer!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! We had literally reached the point of total despair with our dog. We'd tried every expensive "premium" food known to man, spent I don't know how much on vet bills, and tried every home remedy or gimmick we could find when I happened to spot this product at PetSmart.
Our dog, a cockapoo, is apparently allergic to everything a dog can be allergic to, and had scratched so much he ended up with a skin infection and very little fur left. His eyes would get all gunky and he looked like he had mange. We took repeated trips to the vet, bought special (expensive!) shampoos, kept him on doggie Benadryl, all with little success.
Literally within the first couple of days of switching to this food his scratching almost entirely stopped. He seems to love the flavor as he gobbles it down every time - and if he doesn't like a particular food he will flat out go hungry before he'd give in and eat, that's how stubborn he is. (Not that we'd ever let him go hungry lol!) But now his fur is growing back nice and shiny, the scratching has stopped, his eyes have cleared up, and he is in a noticeably better mood, which is understandable because he has to finally feel better! So THANK YOU, Iams, for making this food. You've literally changed our lives for the better, and to top it all off, it's affordable! Please don't ever stop making this!
