Paul F. Iams established his company based on a philosophy of innovation and a belief that an emphasis on advanced nutrition would lead to premium quality other pet foods lacked. Since then, we've enhanced the well being of dogs and cats worldwide by providing inventive and highly nutritious pet foods.

A Different Approach to Pet Food

Our nutritional difference is not only based on years of research and dedication to the health of pets. It comes from a different, innovative way of thinking about the dietary requirements and behaviours of dogs and cats and about a breakthrough approach to the value of advanced nutrition. We believe that the right diet can do amazing things for pets, like boost immunity, help burn fat, help maintain muscle and promote healthy digestion, aid in weight loss, reduce tartar build-up, and, in some instances, even nutritionally manage the progression of disease.

We were the first to:

  • Develop dry, animal-protein based diets suited to the needs of dogs and cats.
  • Tailor formulas by life stage, even developing a puppy food that actually helps make puppies smarter and more trainable.
  • Develop formulas to meet common needs of pets and their owners, like formulas that help meet the needs of senior animals.


It's this kind of thinking that has made us pet nutrition leaders, and these kinds of discoveries that have shaped the whole of the pet food industry. We hold multiple Patents, and have conducted research that has led to industry-wide acceptance of our health advances. We're very proud of these contributions, which have helped improve the health of pets worldwide.
