Healthy Puppy Formula Premium Dog Food

Product Overview

In our Healthy Puppy Food, we start with real chicken as our #1 ingredient. Plus rice, oat meal and other key ingredients - all in amounts that provide high levels of essential nutrients. Why? Because puppies aren't dogs. They need more - including more protein to get growing. 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.

WHEN FEEDING FOR REPRODUCTION
Purina ONE provides the extra nutrition needed by reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation. Food consumption may vary during gestation, so feed the amount needed to maintain the pregnant female's good body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation.

THE IMPORTANCE OF IDEAL BODY CONDITION
Nestlé 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.

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 puppies and reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation. 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.

Dry Dog Food

Jack was switching from canned to dry food and was resisting. When we tried the Purina One he started eating it with no problems and still just eats the whole bowl everyday.

Quality and affordability for my puppy

I rescued a puppy at 6 weeks and after much research I decided to try Purina One Smart Blend Healthy Puppy Formula. After four weeks she has put on much needed weight and her coat is so soft and shiny now! She is full of life and energy. Thank-You Purina!

Quality food my puppy really enjoys and the ONLY one I would recommend!

If I had to describe the puppy food in one word, I would say, Amazing! Definitely would recommend this puppy food to others. I often get asked by my vet and other people what do you feed your puppy? I tell them Purina One Smart Blend Healthy Puppy Formula. My husband also agrees that we are going to continue to keep our puppy on this food brand and we are truly inspired on how healthy our puppy became just by eating the food.

Let me tell you our puppy story. I really wanted to adopt a new puppy into our family and I decided to rescue a very young maybe 6-7 weeks old female Belgian Malinois puppy. The puppy must of have came from a mill breeder. She was so lethargic, dirty, her nose was cut/scared up and had signs and symptoms of very poor nutrition and dehydration. She was so skinny, you could see all her ribs and skeletons. She had barely any energy to even moved. I was afraid to even adopt her, I did not want a sick puppy. My husband felt extremely sorry for her and wanted her to have better life, one she deserves. So we ended up adopting her.

We needed to find her a good brand of food to help her put on her some weight and give her energy. She was so tiny, did not want to eat or play and was suffering from diarrhea.

I went to look for a puppy formula that would her help and was overwhelmed by all the puppy and dog food brands out there. People kept telling me to by the more expensive quality brands of food. You do not want to feed her any corn meal, grains and by-products etc. My husband and I have always feed our other dogs Pedigree dog food. I read so many labels and brands and was just about buy a more expensive brand of puppy food, when I saw the Purina One Smart Blend Healthy Puppy Formula. I read the main ingredient was Chicken, had Omega 6, Antioxidants and the DHA found in mother's milk to help support vision and brain development. I was still a bit skeptical but decided to give it a try. I also went to the Purina site and read more about the dog food and saw the 28 Day Challenge.

When we feed the food to the puppy she loved the taste and was enjoying the food immediately. Within a few weeks, she was gaining some weight, she stopped having diarrhea and stomach issues, her coat became soft and she had energy enough to want to play. I started to use the food for to her training lessons.

Our vet was impressed on how our puppy came around and very pleased to see how healthy she was becoming. The vet would always me what our your feeding her? The difference is remarkable!

For all the skeptics out there, I say give it a try! Take the challenge.
You will see the true difference on what you feed your puppy really matters.

I cannot thank the makers of Purina for making such are great food product and at a affordable price. I am so grateful our puppy - Mishka is very healthy now, full of energy and most of all - Happy! She loves her puppy food!

I will support and continue to feed our puppy Purina One Smart Blend formulas.

Thank You Purina!!

Great food my puppy loves!

I adopted my puppy when she was about 4 months old and she'd been put on "all ages" grain-free food. She was ok eating that for a while, but then I had to start hand feeding her to get her to start/finish meals. On top of that, she wasn't getting the vitamins/Omega3/DHA that puppy-only food could give her.
I first tried putting her back on Puppy Chow, as I'd been told she was on that before coming up to NY as a rescue. She Loved that, but it made her itchy.
I figured I'd try Purina One as other reviewers said their dogs had skin problems (itching) and they went away after being on One. As promised, the itchiness went away and her coat got even softer & so shiny! She loves this food & I'm glad to have found a good quality, reasonably-priced food to give her that has also shown to work this well already!

Rough Start

My puppy was the runt of the liter. Had a rough start on life but has really progressed in a healthy way with Purina One. She is now 12 weeks old and is only a 1\3 of her other 4 sisters but is up and going like they are now. She has slowly started to gain weight and is no longer unhealthy.

Surprising Results for a Song

We adopted our rescue pup when he was just 12 weeks old. He was a wisp of a thing, and not a very good eater. We wanted to give him the best food available, and purchased very expensive kibble. He wouldn't eat it. Then we purchased very expensive dehydrated food, which he seemed to like a little bit better, but not enough to eat it without being hand fed.

He had very soft stool, lacked energy and started losing patches of fur. My vet recommended Purina One, which really surprised me considering it's more of a bargain brand. However, he told me his own dogs eat it and love it, and that it couldn't hurt to give it a try. Our picky puppy took to Purina One right away and one month later, is still going strong. He's still not the best eater, but I don't have to hand feed him as he will eat his food eventually, pushing the bowl across the floor in his eagerness. His energy level has really gone up, the patchy spots in his coat are filling in, and his stool is now solid enough to pick up and dispose of properly.

I still wouldn't consider Purina One the most "healthy" of foods for dogs, but I'm ok enough with the ingredients to keep feeding it to our dog. Glad we switched!
