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.

Excellent Product

My puppy loves this food. The biggest problem I had was locating it in stores in my area. I went to 4 different pet supply stores, 4 grocery stores and finally, I found it at Target! And, they only had 1!

My Great Dane puppies lke it

Since changing to Purina One Large breed puppy food, my Great Dane puppies really like it. I have noticed that they have somewhat less stool volume with less fiber in this food. They are growing well and their coats are shiney.

High quality and my pup loves it!

Before Purina One...chow time was just another time of day for him. Now, he gets so excited!! He loves getting his dinner almost as much as he loves getting treats. It makes him happy, I know it's healthy, and that makes me happy! Couldn't be a more satisfied on either end!

Shiny Coat, High Energy, Less Poos

Purina One Smartblend Large Breed Puppy Formula is great. Our Black Labrador, who is just turning 10 months old, loves it. I also sent the ingredients to our vet and he approved the switch as well since our pup wasn't so interested in the food previously recommended. (Unusual for a Lab.) He eats it well, (even in his Kong toys), still has a very shiny coat that people comment on, and fewer poops. His energy is also higher (it was already high), which has kept his weight at a very healthy level with this diet and exercise. (Almost 10 months and weighed 58.9 pounds earlier this week.) Many people comment on his shiny coat and healthy weight saying most Labs they see look chunky or overweight, and ask us what we feed him. We gladly tell them Purina One Smartblend Large Breed Puppy. We absolutely recommend this food for all growing large breed pups.

Beyond my expectations!!!

Wyndie and Wilburr were part of an abandon 10 pup litter found in the back country of Scioto County. Eating a diet of moss, bark and ground water.

The rescue group put them on a diet of Purina Puppy Chow.

It's been 4 months since the adoption.

Wyndie started at 6 pounds, Wilburr, 4 pounds.

The vet recommended Purina One.

I switched to Purina One after my first 30 pound bag of Puppy Chow. I mixed the largest bags of Purina One Large Puppy brand with a Purina One Lamb.

After 4 months, Wyndie weighs in at 39.5 pounds while Wilburr monsters in at 45 pounds.

Both dogs are now quite fit, in shape, playful and active.
Their pure brindle coats shine very well.

I'm happy because the vets are happy.

I won't be switching.

Thanks!

Anthony J. Salamon

Cookie Loves It!

Our Newfoundland pup, Cookie, loves her Purina Large Breed Puppy food! She is 11 weeks old now and eats it as her only food. Her coat is spectacular and her energy level is over the top! We have also been using it as a training treat for house breaking and general training commands.
Our breeder feeds all 4 of his Newfies Purina One and they are thriving. I am sure Cookie will thrive on it too!

Puppy Loved this food and adjusted very well

We had our puppy on IAMS for the first 7 months - we switched to Large Breed puppy formula about a month ago and he's doing very well on it and he loves it. I would highly recommend this brand. I only wish Meijer would carry the Large Breed Puppy Formula
