by CalliesMom Beats the expensive brands everytime
When I got my puppy, I wanted to be the good dog mom and bought the expensive foods. She always had Innova, Blue Buffalo, or something similar. When I adopted my second dog, i really started reading labels- and price tags. I made the switch to Purnia One SmartBlend and they both loved it. My new dog's shedding, dandruff, and skin issues cleared up almost instantly. When I got married, I had more money to spend on food, so we tried Blue Buffalo again. My dogs got fat! And Farley's skin was a mess again. Neither one was ever excited for feeding time. I talked to my vet and was assured that Purina is just as good as the pricier models, and better for the dogs' weight. The dogs literally jumped for joy when they saw the SmartBlend bag come in the house! They can't get enough of those tasty morsels. For a treat every now and then, I switch to the chicken. They love them both.
Now that I foster dogs, the rescue sends them with the top of the line, all natural, 4 ingredient foods. Usually the only way to get them to touch that stuff is to put some smartblend on top!

by Buttons502 Awesome food for my Lab!!!
One of our chocolate Labradors suffers from food allergies . She had the sun burst look on her brown coat. She was always miserable if not medicated. We have tried a lot of other dog food brands. Nothing seemed to work well for her. We started her on Purina One Lamb and Rice Formula for Dogs 8 months ago. We are so excited to say that our pet now has a shinny brown coat !!! Her allergies are less bothersome, and she is a happier camper for sure. Thank you Purina One!!!

by Betty62 Quality food my dogs enjoy!
I received a sample of your Purina One Smartblend Lamb & rice in the mail. I put a little in our dogs dish & our pomeranian took the first bit. I knew this was it, they liked it better than the dog food I had been buying them for years. I received a $3.00 coupon & purchased the first bag. On a fixed income, coupons help.

We switched back to Purina One Lamb and Rice formula when I noticed a moch fouler odor from our current dog food. I had switched to a cheaper brand due to the cost with having two dogs and going through dog food so quickly. My boys love it. It used to take my lab 15+minutes to eat. Literally 1 kibble at a time. Now its a whole different story. Both my boys live the switch. There is no odor with the Purina One and I've noticed a shinier coat and more energy! We love it!

by BuddysMom Finally a food my pup can stomach!
After trying several foods, my pup was struggling with digestion. He would only eat after starving himself. I took him to 3 vets and multiple test showed NOTHING WAS WRONG! So the last vet recommended Purina One and since the very first bowl he has been regular and happy to finish his meals. I am so happy that we have found a food for him to enjoy and digest! Thank you Purina!

by dogsx3 All three of our dogs love it!
I've used Purina One, lamb and rice for years. It was actually suggested as a great dog food from a vet. With it, there are no skin problems or tummy issues. All three of our dogs will steal food from the other dogs' dishes, just so that their dish will have a few kibbles left. It's pretty funny. Good product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DnAustin 15 Years and going...
I came to this site looking for negative reviews. The only one I found was based on transportation, not quality. Here is what I know first hand. I have a 15 year old black lab mix that has been on Purina One Lamb/Rice since I adopted him from my Marine Nephew almost 12 years ago when he got shipped out to Okinawa. Honestly, the proof is the fact that he still acts like a puppy, and sometimes he's hard to keep up with. The old man still can manage to jump on my bed. I also have a lab, Char-Pei, Ridge Back mix. I know, weird. However, she will be turning 7 next year, and runs like the wind.
The reality is that the proof is there. No one wants to pick up not firm. I tried a large warehouse food parallel with Purina One, and I actually had to dumpster it as they didn't like it, and the outcome was that the apartment had to be cleaned.
They both love this food, and I will not be changing it. Why would I?

Rated 5 out of 5 by NCaussie Nice coat with a taste my dogs love
My husband and I have 7 dogs sharing our house ranging in ages from 2 years (Am Staffordshire terrier) to 15 years (Australian Shepherd) who all love Purina One Lamb & Rice food. Over the last 15+ years we have fostered and re-homed well over 300 dogs of all breeds - each being fed Purina One Lamb & Rice. This food has provided the proper nutrition for them to become healthy, happy dogs with beautiful shiny coats no matter what situation the foster dogs lived in before coming to us. It is amazing to watch a dog who comes to us with a dull, poor coat transform into a healthy happy dog with a nice, shiny, healthy look. Without a good nutritious dog food this transformation would not be possible. As we find new loving homes for each of them, a small bag of Purina One Lamb and Rice goes with each of them in their adoption packet along with our educating the new owners about proper nutrition for their new dog. Thank you Purina for your help in providing a quality nutritional product and helping us help dogs in need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by N312WS Wonderful dog food!
We had our German Shepherd on a more expensive food for the first 7 months we had him as a puppy. As time went on he was less and less interested in eating and was not growing as he should have been and his digestive system was not working properly. My mom suggested we try the Purina One Lamb and Rice Smartblend and we couldn't be happier! His coat is beautiful and shiney and he put on about ten pounds in the first two weeks to get him up to a more reasonable weight. I am thrilled that is is made with real lamb as the first ingredient. We will be using this dog food for all of our future pets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ColeysMom Picky Puppy
My dog has always been a dog with extra needs. He went through all kinds of allergen reduced dog foods. It was awful. He got to a point where he refused to eat them. I thought that if I gave him time and no treats, he would start eating the allergen free vet recommended junk. He didn't. four days sent by and I felt like an awful puppy parent. I had been researching possible brands that could accommodate his needs without breaking my bank. The first bowl of the lamb and rice formula convinced him and me that we'd found the best possible match. Hilariously, he will eat out all of the meat chunks and leave the other bits until later. I am so happy we found this food.

I switched over to Purina One about 4 mths ago from Purina Pro Plan to save a little money.... I figured I'd switch for a bit then go back. No need! My girls love their Purina One & I have actually noticed its helped minimize odor in their BMs as well :) it works out for all of us!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mary11 An affordable, good quality food.
My dog does wonderfully on this food. His skin is healthy and his coat is shiny. He has no problems with digestion and his stool is firm. In addition, Purina One is very affordable.
I have many friends that insist on buying pricey "high end" dog food, and try to get me to switch. But I won't do it. Most of their dogs have mushy stool and their coats look dull. I will stick with Purina One for my dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Junior Purina One dog foods will sustain a lifetime of healthy eating for your dog.
Eight years ago my Golden Retriever was delivered from his breeder with a bag of Purina One Puppy food. He has never eaten anything other than Purina One with the exception of the SmartBlend, which he absolutely loves! He is healthy, has a wonderful coat and never had any serious health issues. His appetite is satisfied and he still has enough energy to be a Certified Therapy Dog. Thanks to Purina for continuing a legacy of delicious and nutritious dog foods.

I feed one of my dogs Purina ONE Lamb & Rice, And My other dog Costco's Dog food. The Costco brand has little to no crumbs per bag where as the Purina ONE Lamb & Rice has tons of them. I don't understand why Purina One isn't able to reduce the crumbs like other companies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DNS63 MY DOGS LOVE THIS FOOD
I have a two year old German Shepard who has had several issues since I purchased him at 12 weeks old. The sellers told me he had growing pains, he was very week in all four legs for over a year. The vet could not diagnose him and really I started thinking he had a degenerative disease since he was not getting better at two years old. I was purchasing expensive dog food from our local feed store that he would not eat without canned, well I ran out of dog food and the local feed store was closed. I ran over to the local grocery store and saw a bag that said Lamb and Rice (Purina One) and decided this is probably the best choice. Well got home and put a scoop in his bowl and got ready to open a can of dog food to mix it in so he would eat. He started eating before I had a chance to put the canned food in. I could not believe he was eating this without the can and I thought he likes it. Approx two days later on this food he actually started walking better and I thought hmmm was it really the food this whole time. Its been one week on the Lamb and Rice Purina One and I can not believe my eyes he is actually running around (not completely 100%, keeping a real close eye on his progress though) he is playing with my other german shepard and seems real happy and feeling great. I have not had to give him any canned dog food and that I was giving to him for over one year. At this point I am not going to change this brand of dog food to any other and will give more updates in a couples of weeks. I am just so happy and would recommend this food to everyone!!! Thanks Purina

One of the only foods that satisfy the needs of both of my large dogs. It provided our Newfoundland with everything she needs to grow and develop while catering to the sensitive skin and allergies of our american bulldog.

My dog was previously on a bet recommended dry food by a big name dog food company but I noticed her coat was dull, skin was dry and unhealthy, and she wouldn't eat until she was VERY hungry. After comparing brands I chose Purina One and she loves it. Eats as soon as I feed her, and after two weeks her skin and coat look fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by choirlady8985 My dogs get excited when anybody passes the food bin
My dogs get so excited when anybody fills their bowl. One sits by the bowl waiting for it to be filled, one waits to be fed by hand like they're the best treats in the world, and one just digs in at the bin where we keep the food from the opened bag.
who thought feeding time could be so fun!

We recently adopted a pet from a shelter who was a bit skittish at first. We started with the food that they had served at the shelter, but he wasn't a fan. We had been planning on switching him to a Purina food eventually, but we hadn't decided on exactly what kind. After reading about all of the different types of Purina foods and flavors, we settled on Lamb & Rice SMARTBLEND. Our dog LOVES it! Definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anne3836 All 12 of my dogs love this food
All 12 of my dogs love this food. I have 11 rescued Pekingese and 1 rescued papillion, all 12 of them love this food and have been on it for about 5 years with no issues. My oldest dog is 15 and he loves it. I supplement with Purina One lamb and rice canned food for 3 of the older dogs due to loss of teeth. All are doing well and are healthy and happy. My dogs range in age from 1 year to 15 years old with most being seniors. As some had skin allergies I switched to this product and have never regretted the change. Will not ever change to another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dragondoll This food offers a little extra TLC
After adopting a Min Pin from Craigslist we realized her history was not quite as we were lead to believe. She was thin, her coat was dull and her skin was flacky. She was itching all the time. After consulting a vet it was recommended we change her food to a lamb rice combo. It was suggested she had an allergy to corn & chicken. After 2 weeks her skin is not flacky anymore, her coat is shiney and she has filled out. She hardly itches now. Even my older dog likes the taste & she is VERY picky.

While walking through Pet-smart, we ran into a dog breeder that happened to breed the same type of dog we have. An American bull dog. We asked them what they fed their dogs to have them looking so good, and not itching like crazy. They told us to get Purina Lamb and Rice and we would be happy with the results...and were we ever! Amazing how soft and full her coat has come in, and no more itching! :)

I took in a 2 year old European Great Dane that the owner couldn't keep. After 3 weeks my allergies were so bad I had to give him up. Luckily my brother took him but the same happened to him. The dog had really bad dander and his fur was really thin. We tried all kinds of thing to try to help with his fur and skin problems. A coworker said to try Purina one lamb and rice. Its amazing the difference in the dog and my brother. The dogs dander has decreased a lot and his fur is thick. My brother is no longer suffering with allergies. This is an amazing dog food!!!
