WHY: Dog owners will learn about what’s really in their dogs’ bowls. The surprising truth is that some leading dog food brands may add sugar, dyes or artificial preservatives, but those ingredients don’t necessarily contribute to a dog’s health and well being. We think dogs deserve better, so IAMS has introduced So Good!, a new food for dogs made with 100% wholesome ingredients. Visit to compare new IAMS So Good! to Pedigree, Beneful, Dog Chow and Kibbles 'n Bits. Pet owners can also visit
