    Your puppy is very lucky to have an owner like you who is so concerned about his or her health and well-being. I would be delighted to respond to your inquiry. Long before I worked for the Iams Company, I have fed and recommended Iams!

    For your large-breed puppy, I would recommend our Iams Smart Puppy Large Breed. Iams Smart Puppy Large Breed is designed specifically for large and giant breed puppies to help manage the growth these puppies generally experience. Nutritionally controlling the growth rate of large and giant breed puppies helps minimize the risk of common bone and joint problems. It also contains less fat, lower calories and reduced levels of protein with the proper calcium to phosphorus ratio to better meet the nutritional needs of your large breed puppy.

    For this formula, I would recommend feeding between 4-4 ¼ cups of food. Depending on the activity level of your dog, you can adjust the feeding as needed.

    Good luck!

    You should always start with the recommended amount listed on the bag. You may have to increase or decrease it depending on your dog's activity level, etc. My lab is 72 lbs and he eats 4 cups of kibble a day – 2 cups in the morning and 2 cups in the evening. I feed Taste of the Wild and the bag recommends 3 – 3 1/2 cups per day, but my dog is very active and starting loosing weight on that amount so I increased it a little.
