Large Breed Puppy Formula Premium Dog Food

Product Overview

In our Large Breed Puppy Food, we use real chicken as our first ingredient, along with other key ingredients and nutrients including rice and glucosamine. Why? Because feeding a large breed puppy is a balancing act.

An ideal body condition helps minimize stress on growing bones and joints. And the right balance of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients helps them grow healthy and strong - in what might seem like the blink of an eye. And this blend of dry puppy food gives them all that including DHA, a nutrient also found in mother's milk, for vision and brain development. It's choosing ingredients that work better together than they ever could on their own that inspired us to call this puppy food SMARTBLEND.

What's A Dual Defense Antioxidant Blend? One That Works Inside & Out.
It's probably not something your puppy thinks about, but his SMARTBLEND is working around the clock. It starts with a dual defense antioxidant blend of Vitamins E & A along with minerals zinc and selenium in a 100% complete diet for your puppy. Together, they make a healthy difference on the inside by supporting your dog's strong immune system and on the outside by supporting healthy skin and a radiant coat. 

We're inspired by the science in nature, discovering the power of smart ingredients that work together for your puppy's whole body health.

PUPPY FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS
Start puppies on moistened Purina ONE as early as they will nibble at solid foods, generally 3–4 weeks of age. Allow your puppy to eat at will until fully weaned (6–8 weeks). After weaning, feed pups (to six months of age) all of the moistened or dry Purina ONE they will consume at intervals throughout the day. If water is added, use no more than one part warm (not hot) liquid to four parts Purina ONE, changing frequently to ensure freshness. If fed dry, this formula may be kept before pups at all times. For best results, develop a regular feeding schedule, such as three small meals a day for younger puppies. Gradually reduce to one feeding in the morning and one in the evening as your puppy ages. The routine should not vary.

THE IMPORTANCE OF IDEAL BODY CONDITION
Nestle Purina Research indicates that avoiding overfeeding of puppies may help their development. Maintaining ideal body condition is key to encouraging proper growth in all puppies, especially large breeds. The indicated amounts are only a guideline. If your puppy becomes overweight, a reduction of his daily food intake may be appropriate. You may wish to consult your veterinarian about a weight control program.

RECOMMENDED FOR GROWTH
This product is for growth of large breed puppies and maintenance of adult dogs — not for reproducing or lactating females. If you have a pregnant or nursing female, we recommend Purina ONE SMARTBlend Healthy Puppy Formula.

MAKING THE SWITCH TO PURINA ONE
Although you’ll be anxious to see the difference Purina ONE can make in your puppy, please allow 7–10 days to ease the transition from your puppy’s current food. Each day, simply feed a little less of the previous food and a little more Purina ONE until you’re feeding Purina ONE exclusively. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets.

NO SUPPLEMENTS NECESSARY
Purina ONE provides 100% complete and balanced nutrition for the growth of large breed puppies. There is no need to add vitamins, minerals or other supplements, unless specifically directed by a veterinarian.

FRESH WATER, PROPER DIET & VETERINARY CARE
Be sure to provide fresh water in a clean container for your puppy daily. Proper diet, exercise and veterinary care are the best ways to keep your puppy healthy. If your puppy hasn’t had a check-up in the past year, please make an appointment today.

My dog loves it!

I have a 6 month old St Bernard/ Bernese mix and I wanted a dog food for large breeds that wouldn't put me in the poor house, he currently eats 9 cups a day. I was happy to find Purina One for large breeds because the price was affordable and the first ingredient was chicken. My puppy loves it and he is healthy. His coat is shiny and he's very playful. Thank you for making good dog food that's affordable for large breeds.

Excellent coat!

My 1 year old german shorthair not only loves the food but she has the healthiest coat I have ever seen. People just can't get over how soft and shiny she is. We receive compliments every time we go out. The vet also says she is one of the most healthiest dogs she sees.

For a full year

My 11-month old Basenji isn't a large breed dog, but because he wolfs his food down so fast, I thought I'd try the bigger pieces in order to slow him down a bit. It works great, and he looks great too. Healthy and active, Sherlock will be graduating to the Lamb and Rice Adult formula next month. My 4-year old, Azizi, has been eating that since she was one, and her coat is so soft, even the long guard hairs. My 13-year old, Buddy, has been a Purina One dog all his life and has eaten Senior formula since he was seven. I love Purina One and recommend it to all. I would never switch, because I've had such excellent results for all three of my Basenjis.

Awesome Food

I have an 9wk old pit boxer mix when we brought her home we put her on a blue buffalo wilderness puppy food because of the high protein & i just wanted her to have the best quality food possible. Well she liked it for the first couple days & then wouldn't eat it anymore after that & had loose stools from BB wilderness :( & i noticed she wouldn't eat anymore & i became super concerned because i didn't want her to starve herself. So previously my boyfriends cousin had my puppy & her siblings on purina one LG puppy formula so we decided to throw out Blue buffalo and switched back and 3 days later i can't keep her outta her bowl & her diarrhea has disappeared!!! i am so happy about that plus her energy level is way up there which i am also happy about that as well. People frown upon this food but i loveeeee it!!

What a treat!

When we first adopted our rescue lab/pit bull mix, I wasn't sure what to feed her. I began giving her a 'cheaper' brand. Once I heard about the 28-day challenge, I decided to see if it would make a difference. Immediately I noticed a difference in her, we were even able to use the food as a training treat! Her coat, teeth, breath, eyes... everything seems brighter and more beautiful!

Will never switch again!

After being referred by a family member, we decided to try giving our 6 month old puppy blue buffalo food after we had started him on purina one puppy formula. The blue buffalo food made our pup extremely sick. He was crying out in pain, had bloody stools, was vomiting, extremely lethargic, and had broke out in a red skin rash and hives all over his body. We switched back to purina one after a few weeks of trying to figure out what was wrong and tried the large breed puppy formula. We LOVE it. Within a few days our pup was back to his normal self, high energy, normal skin and shiny coat. Would recommend this dog food to anyone!

New food

Adi is a 10 month old white shepherd mix. We had tried several brands but Purina One is the only one that she likes. Her coat is shiny and overall acts like she has more energy! Thank you Purina!
