When it comes to dog food & treats, I’ve never been one to splurge on “extras” just as as gravy or sauces for dog food.
But when our adult dog stopped eating and started losing weight, we found IAMS Savory Sauce to be the perfect solution!
Spoil your dog healthy every day by topping his food with these delicious home-style sauces.
I tend to shop conservatively, and I don’t usually splurge on products like this, but when I find a product that my dogs like, then I usually stick with it for years.
…I think this is one I’m sticking with!
Reasons To Sauce Things Up
I’ve never indulged my dogs with a product like this mixed in with their regular food before. I figured… as long as they were eating their food alright and getting their proper nutrition, then I didn’t see the need.
However, after we introduced a new puppy into our home, our 3-year-old dog wasn’t eating as much. He was less interested in food. And when he did get hungry, he ate far less than he used to.
After several months, we started to notice he had lost quite a bit of weight, so we decided to try the free sample of IAMS Savory Sauce that we’d received. The goal was to get him back to eating the proper amount of dog food for his age & weight.
My Dog LOVES This Stuff!
I poured a teaspoon or so of IAMS Savory Sauce (sizzlin’ bacon flavor) onto Destin’s regular dog food, then mixed it up a bit. He LOVED it, and he ate up every last pellet of dog food that was in his bowl.
We tried not adding the “special sauce” to his very next bowl of dog food, but he noticed. He wouldn’t touch a bite.
So, we’ve been adding IAMS Savory Sauce to his regular food every single day since then.
As a result, Destin gained most of his weight back, and he thoroughly enjoys mealtimes now!

I like to help Dog Parents find unique ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about "outside the box" Dog Tips and Dog Hacks that most wouldn't think of. I’m a lifelong dog owner — currently have 2 mixed breed Golden Aussies that we found abandoned on the side of the road as puppies. I've always trained my own dogs and help friends train theirs, as well. Professionally, I worked at a vet and have several friends who are veterinarians — whom I consult with regularly. (And just because I love animals so much, I also worked at a Zoo for awhile!) I've been sharing my best ideas with others by blogging full-time since 1998 (the same year that Google started… and before the days of Facebook and YouTube). My daily motivation is to help first-time dog owners be better prepared from the first day your new puppy enters your home. I like to help dog owners understand what's 'normal' and what you can expect in terms of living with and training your dog — how to get through the ups & downs of potty training, chewing, teaching commands, getting your dog to listen, and everything else that takes place during that hectic first year! When I'm not training, walking, grooming, or making homemade treats for my dogs, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites). To date, I've written over 500 articles for dog owners on this site!
