Before switching to Iams, my dogs were on a cheap, chain store brand dog food. Used to inferior ingredients, the change over to Iams, was difficult for about a week. There were some refusals and even some disdain on my dogs faces. However, slowly but surely, they began to consume the produce, and what started out as a battle, seemed to bring them enjoyment by around the end of the first week. Now, my dogs have completed the change from moist, inferior food, to the dry, nutritional iams alternative. Their picky nature at the start, has been exchanged for excitement for this product. They seem to enjoy it, and I enjoy knowing I am giving them a far better alternative to what I was originally offering them. It makes me feel more confident as a pet owner, that I am providing them with the best available, instead of what is convenient. Switching foods, is difficult for everyone, humans to four legged friends, so while it may seem like a lost cause, at first, just know, eventually, your pets will accept the alternative, and like in this case, may enjoy it far more!
