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.

Feeding Guidelines

Recommended daily feeding amounts for puppies with normal activity using a standard 8 oz/250 ml measuring cup which contains approximately 96 g of Purina ONE.

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.

Can't get enough

My puppy was 10 weeks old when I rescued him. He was a skinny little thing so I wanted the best quality food for him no matter the price. I purchased a Wellness brand. I had to hand feed him and play games with the food to get him to eat it. His stool was always soft. Then I switched to Earthbound. Another expensive quality food that promised the world. He liked it a little better but still having a soft stool. My vet tech. recommended Purina One. She told me the fancy foods had a lot of fiber and berries in them and that everyone there fed there dogs Purina One.
So I could not believe how much my puppy loves it. He is 5 months old and was still on the thin side. It's been a week and he already is showing signs of weight gain and spunk in his step.
Now when it's feeding time he attacks the bowl like the dogs in the commercials. He abousolutley loves it.
The price is reasonable and I'm happy with the ingredients.

New Puppy, New Food

I got my Australian Shepherd, Piper, when she was 16 weeks old and for weeks before I debated on what to feed her. Our other dogs are on a sensitive diet and I didn't know what would be best for her. My boyfriend's mom sent me the coupon and the 28-day challenge, so I chose the Healthy Puppy formula because of the DHA for brain and vision development and the texture of the food. She is now 5 months old and growing and thriving. She absolutely loves the food and her health is amazing. Her coat has shined up and her weight is perfect. Everywhere we go she gets compliments and I make a point to tell people when they ask that she gets Purina One. I will continue to feed Purina One as she gets older and I look forward to many healthy years!

dogs love it

I got a now 4 month old pit bull puppy and a 6yr old bull boxer. With the bull boxer we were having problems getting him to eat. We put izzy the pit on the puppy food and he started eating it right away. He loves it. So does izzy. Just wish iron was in it.

First Dog

First time I paid big $ for a dog and wanted a reliable brand. My spaniel loves this food. It looks great and has good stools as well. My dog will eat this for the future.

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!

Eleventh Hour Rescue

When we adopted our Feist Mix from Eleventh Hour Rescue at about 9 months old he was being given Purina One Puppy food. He loved it, and we didn't want to change his food even though he was ready to move on to Adult food. We slowly switch him to Purina One Adult Dry Food by mixing it in to the puppy food a little at a time. He made the switch with no incidence and continues to love his Purina One.

Research behind the product

It's nice to go to a web site and actually read about the research that goes behind the dog food and why these ingredients were chosen. I feel Purina really cares about the food they make for pets and their owners. Just go to their online sites and look. They explain how they look at nutrition and why they choose the ingredients that go into their pet food. The ingredients they pick compliment one another so pets get all the nutrients they need to stay healthy. And they have such a wide range of products, even a picky owner can find something good for their pets.

The One*

We got our Lab Mix at 12 weeks old. We went through 3 types of different puppy dry food and each one she would not eat or would only nibble for a little and never finish. Our 4th attempt the vet recommended Purina One and from day 1 she was hooked. It didn't have a giant variety of taste and she was picky and would only eat the brown ones so this recipe worked out perfect. She is 1yr old now and has been eating the same recipe since then without problem. The food gives her enough nutrients and she doesn't seem sick or sluggish from it at all. It's a bit pricier especially if you have a big dog but it's the perfect fit if your pup is picky. Highly Recommend! Will be switching over to the adult version soon...

The only pet food I trust for our fur babies

The puppy formula I wish was a bit smaller in size since my babies are tiny. But they love this food. I have 6 Japanese Chin pups and want to keep them all healthy. This food is healthy and fills them up without over eating.

Good source of healthy ingredients

We rescued our puppy when he was four months old and continued to feed him the food he came with, but he developed a food rash all over his tender belly. We switched him to Purina One Smartblend puppy formula and after a quick trip to our vet and continued use of Purina he is great, full of energy and loves to eat. Thank you for providing a quality food for him and other puppies!
