Feeding Instructions

The recommended feeding amounts indicated are based upon the average nutritional needs of an adult dog with a normal activity level (using a standard 8 oz/250 ml measuring cup, which contains approximately 92 g of Purina ONE).  Factors, such as a dog's metabolism, breed size, activity level, age and whether the dog is spayed or neutered, will affect the amount of Purina ONE needed to maintain an ideal body condition. The pet experts at Purina have provided the feeding amounts indicated as a starting point. If you find that your dog is losing weight or becomes overweight when fed these amounts, please adjust accordingly. To help your dog maintain an ideal body condition, monitor your dog's weight on a regular basis, making sure that his ribs are easily felt and the waist is visible when viewed from above. Maintaining an ideal body condition can impact your dog’s lifelong health.

IT'S NOT FOR ALL DOGS
Purina ONE True Instinct formula is specifically formulated for adult dogs. If you have a puppy, or a pregnant or nursing dog, feed Purina ONE SmartBlend Healthy Puppy Formula.

MAY BE SERVED DRY OR MOISTENED 
Purina ONE may be fed dry or mixed with water. If mixed, we suggest one part liquid to four parts Purina ONE.

MAKING THE SWITCH TO PURINA ONE
Although you’ll be anxious to see the difference Purina ONE can make in your dog, please allow 7–10 days to ease the transition from your dog’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 adult dogs. 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 dog daily. Proper diet, exercise and veterinary care are the best ways to keep your dog healthy. If your dog hasn’t had a check-up in the past year, please make an appointment today.

My dogs love it!

Not only do they start running around like crazy as soon as the dog food bags get brought inside, but they down it even faster. They love the chunks of fish and meat and their coats have become more shiny. With having high drive dogs, this is just the dog food for them! I recommend it regularly!

Both dogs love this food

The salmon and tuna is their absolute favorite. Both dogs (a standard poodle and a setter mix) eagerly anticipate feeding time. Their coats are shining after I started this product.

Dog with allergies!

My dog started to have skin allergies with other dog food brands. We talked to our vet and suggested fish brand food. We tried several brands and Kiba, our dog, would only eat Purina One Salmon. She loves it! Her skin is back to normal and her fur grew back. Thanks!!

My dog has never felt better!

My rescue dachshund Riley is 12 years old. He had always had problems with vomiting with other dog foods - only once or twice a month but too often for me to be comfortable. I was advised by a salesman at a local pet food store that his dog had digestive issues too and that salmon or lamb seemed to work best for him. I tried the salmon formula and Riley loves the soft chews (usually picks them out first) but then eats all of it and he's picky. He has not vomited once since starting him on the salmon formula and I am so grateful and he gives it a two woof thanks! My only concern is that it is hard to find locally, especially in the smaller (7 lb) bag.

Picky eater chooses Purina One

I have a spunky, fun loving mix breed that was a rescue. He goes with me when I visit my daughter who also has 2 rescue dogs. If we stay a long time and it is past his eating schedule, he refuses to eat any of her dogs' food! ( And they buy that EXPENSIVE dog food that costs about 3 times the cost of Purina One!) He will just give me a look like, "Really? Do you expect me to eat THAT?" I have to take his own Purina One True Instinct or he won't eat until we get home! I'd say that's a pretty good recommendation...straight from the doggies mouth!
His annual physicals are great. He is very healthy and has a lot of energy. He loves to run and play. He has no skin allergies or problems of any kind. I'm glad I found Purina One True Instinct for this picky pup!

Dogs love love love the Salmon and Tuna

I have been feeding my Siberian Husky's the True instinct Salmon and Tuna for a while and they LOVE IT!!! Even my 6 week old puppies wanna eat it. They ignore there food and try to eat there parents food. (parents food is set up high so pups can't get it) But i have seen a lot of good results. My huskies don't need to eat a lot of it, there coats are very shinny and soft, there more active, and i don't have to buy any multivitamins for those zinc deficiency issues. It seems that the food helps with the zinc deficiency. Every time i buy a new bag of this my dogs get very excited and sometimes try to open the bag. This is definitely worth it!!!! Yes its a little spendy but worth it!!! One bag last me almost 2 months with my two huskys and my male eats a lot. It used to be that a bag of different dog food lasted a month. I love this product and so do my huskys.

Astronomical Change in Just Three Days!

My GSD-Rottweiler mix girl is almost eight months old, and has been on Purina Healthy Morsels Puppy Chow since she was weaned at six weeks old. We love Purina, and have used it for our cat for several years. However, the Puppy Blend contains chicken (as ALL of them seem to) and processed chicken seems to keep my girl from a regular and solid BM. Because of this, I was not convinced that she was receiving the full nutritional complex that she needed. So we switched to the Adult P1 Salmon and Tuna blend (with a nutrient dense formula for my growing girl) and after only THREE DAYS, she has solid and normal BMs, is cleaning her bowl, sleeping through the night,and her coat is noticeably softer instead of being rather wirey. We hope to stay on this blend forever and cannot wait to see the positive changes as time goes on. Definitely recommend!!

Sasha and Spencer we're in love at first taste!

At first I wasn't sure if they would enjoy the taste as for life (6 years) they have been fed primarily beef, chicken and poultry flavors. They went nuts! I wasn't thrilled with the smell but soon got over it. I noticed increased "puppy-like" activity and firmer consistency in stool, not to mention smaller stools. Plus, plus, plus! A definite keeper.
