I have a Sheltie (Shetland Sheepdog - they look like a small Collie). She was the runt of the litter and PROBABLY came from a backyard breeder (my ex bought her - I would have opted for a pound puppy, though I dearly love Charlotte, but that is a matter for another forum!), as she has always had sensitive digestion and was a daily vomiter for a long time despite being fed "prescription" foods and being vet-checked. She also showed signs of allergy as she was a pretty itchy doggie, and always gnawed at her own feet. My vet explained that Shelties are genetically predisposed to a skin condition that causes their ears, noses and tails to lose circulation and dry up - and sometimes they need surgery to repair these parts! The vet mentioned that some dogs do well on diets that do not include ruminants or wheat products. Anyway, I found Iams Sensitive Naturals Ocean Fish & Rice and decided to give it a try. It smells really awful, but Charlotte really likes it and took to it immediately. She still vomits, but it's much less frequently, and her coat is not itching, nor is she biting at her claws constantly - and her nose, tail and ears are stable and not drying out. Her stool volume is pretty huge, and I'm only feeding her the recommended amount for her size (between 1.5 - 2 cups per day), but that's why I have a fenced yard! She is doing very well on this diet, so I hope they DON'T change the formula again, and I don't mind buying it in smaller bags - hopefully that keeps it fresher! Thanks for reading my long review.

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.

Why change something good.

By 

from Atlanta, GA, United States

I used to turn my nose up to those owners who would over analyze dog food but now that my dog is always sick I am an avid label reader and super picky. The original formula was perfect. No grain and my dogs loved it. Now the formula has changed and it includes not just one grain but two along with other things. Hmmm and it doesn't come in the 26 lb bag. Really upset as we had to buy another brand and I had them on this for about 2 to 3 years. It really turned around my Cocker Spaniel who is allergic to everything. Even got my friends pack of 3 on it.

My dogs don't seem to like it.

By 

from Houston, TX

One of my dogs has really bad food allergies, along with allergies to everything else on the planet. This food seems to have helped some, but they don't seem to like it very much. My back yard also has the smell of fish because that's where they go. The food really doesn't smell very appetizing.

i had trouble getting my 3 year old beagle ( at the time a year old ) to eat dog food she had stomach problems and was very sensitive to most other foods out there . The vet suggested this food and she's been eating it ever since ( and that's been over two years now)

Very Happy

By 

from Flordia

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.

Amazing Results!!

By 

from Highlands Ranch, CO

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!

By 

from Middle Tennessee

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!

By 

from Plum PA

I have a Beagle that had digestive problems. No matter what I fed her she would eat grass and throw up 15-20 mins after eating (without fail). I tried several differernt dog foods. I actually stumbled upon Iams Natural "Ocean FIsh and Barley." I gave this to her for about a month and she never threw up again. She loves the taste and I love how her stomach doesn't get sick everytime she eats. I now have my Beagle and my German Shepherd eating this and will never buy another dog food. Love Love Love this dog food!!

My English Black Lab will eat anything and you can tell, he tends to be somewhat of a tubsters even w walking 12 miles a week. On the other hand my pit bull turns her nose up to most dog food. Not w Iams Sensitive Naturals Ocean Fish Rice and Barley Dry Dog Food - I notice a difference in their coats, breath and my labs weight. He seems to have lost a few pounds. Happy dogs, happy mom. Life is good. :)
