I know that the current rage is to look for ingredients that sound like they would be good in a picnic lunch, but the foods that focus on looking good to humans don't always work for small, less active adult dogs like mine.
I look for function, and this food keeps my little Shih Tzu mix spot on her ideal weight, and has for years. Her vet is super happy about that, as she has a bad knee and as she ages, her heart needs watching. An elderly dog developing old dog issues can't afford to put on fat. My vet highly recommends that we stay with this food for the good results we've seen.

Good for weight loss and control
I was using another brand of lite dog food and the dogs did not lose weight on it. I have used this in the past during winter as the weather gets too cold and too snowy to walk very often. This can cause weight gain. (In humans too) This food works and the corn meal does the trick. They don't absorb much of the carbs in the corn, but it fills them . Chicken is the main protein, and my dogs lose a pound every 2 weeks. The other No Grain lite dog food I used was keeping them at the same weight as they absorbed most of the other nutrients it had. They are on the recommended amount and do just fine. They are Pit mixes and are strong as Oxen, and they use protein very efficiently. I have used this on almost every dog I've had in the last 15 years and they all got lighter and were very healthy

I bought this dog food and did not read the ingredients first. I will return and choose another Iams product. I don't want to feed my dog food that is mostly corn meal. I want something that is mostly meat, fruit and some veggies. This dog food has listed corn meal as the first ingredient, so I know that is what it is mainly made of. I know you have products with meat listed first, and I will select one of those even if they are not for over weight dogs.
I not unhappy with Iams, but wish I had taken time to read the ingredients.

My large mix breed, Lola has been losing at least two pounds per month. Not too much or too little for her health and exercise level. Her vet is very happy.
