Voted top dog on our list of best puppy food, IAMS for Vitality Puppy has also received generally favorable reviews across the board, particularly for its good value.

"Very good food. I get so many comments on how soft my Lhasa’s coat is. Also price is not through the roof like some brands," wrote one dog owner.

However, some pet owners have struggled with some of the finer details of the product, including comprehending the package's feeding guide.

"I find the feeding guide on the back is way too high amounts for a young puppy and was recommended by my vet not to feed him those amounts but that may just depend on the build/growth of your puppy."

Other pet owners that have pups with wheat allergies may  be confused by the suggestion of a wheat-free product that's been manufactured in a factory that handles wheat. 

"Repeatedly states it is wheat free. Yet on the ingredients list on the bag I received it contains wheat!" is a typical example of a complaint made by confused buyers.
