This post is part of a series brought to you by Iams, part of Mars Petcare, who is committed to “a better world for pets”. I was compensated for this partnership, but all opinions are my own.
Being the youngest of three can be rough. The baby in our family always seemed so small. He’s the last to get to do everything. While his brothers were running all around, he was stuck crawling or being carried. The older boys would chow down on pizza, burgers, and ice cream, while the baby was getting his first bite of a smashed up banana.
But pretty soon, the baby was moving and almost able to keep up with his brothers.
We think about what our kids need at every stage, but it’s important to consider those other babies in our lives, too: our pets.
In the 1980s, IAMS™ changed the face of the pet food aisle, introducing pet formulas based on life stages by launching a custom puppy formula.
Back when we first brought home our kitten, Dobby, he was such a wee thing and he ate IAMS™ Kitten Food.
As we switch Dobby to cat food, we’ll do 75% kitten food/25% cat food on day 1, 50/50 kitten/adult food on day 2, 75% adult food/25% kitten food on day 3, and then 100% cat food by day 4.
