Iams Introduces New So Good! Giving Pet Parents the Value They Want and Quality Their Dogs Need

Pet Food Maker Launches New Campaign Asking,"What's Really In Your Bowl?"

MASON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The surprising truth is that some leading dog food brands add ingredients that don't necessarily contribute to a dog's health and well being. Recently, Iams announced its newest line of dog food - So Good! - made with 100% wholesome ingredients and no added sugars, dyes or artificial preservatives. Some leading dog food brands, like Pedigree, Beneful, Dog Chow and Kibbles 'n Bits, may add things like Red Dye #40 or corn syrup, so the leading pet food maker is launching a national campaign and asking dog owners, "What's Really in Your Bowl?"

"At Iams we believe every pet and every owner deserves the very best nutrition at an affordable price; So Good! is a fantastic food dogs will love and their pet parents will love the lower cost too," said Kristine Decker, marketing director for Iams North America. "We want to give dog owners the facts about what ingredients are in some of the other leading brands so they can decide if they want added sugar, dyes or artificial preservatives in their dog's bowl."

To help launch So Good!, and start a conversation among pet owners, a new Iams television ad recently launched. Developed by Saatchi & Saatchi (New York), the new commercial called 'Real Love' (:30/:15) features Harvey, a Beagle/Corgi blend, and his actual owner Hannah. Iams is all about celebrating the unconditional love between people and their pets, so the spot highlights the special bonding moment when it's meal time. When the ad team talked with Hannah during the TV shoot about the ways Harvey showed his love when it came to his food, she said he likes to spin; that authentic behavior is featured in the final spot.

The new Iams So Good! campaign will also include print, digital (web and iMedia), PR and social media activities.

Dog owners can show their love by feeding So Good! to their best friend - a tasty food that includes protein-packed chicken, veggies, fruit and crunchy kibbles. The newest food from Iams can be found in the pet food aisles at mass retailers, grocery and pet specialty stores for a suggested price of $9.99 for a 6.3 lb. bag; $14.49 for a 13.5 lb. bag; and $22.49 for a 27 lb. bag. Specific product details include:

  • Irresistible Chicken Flavor - bowl licked clean, satisfaction guaranteed*

  • Veggies & Fruit - natural fiber for a healthy tummy

  • Protein-Packed Chicken - to help with a strong, healthy body

  • Crunchy Kibbles - to keep dogs' smiles bright
