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.

Feeding Guidelines

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.

My Rottweiler puppy loves it.

My previous dog was Boxweiler raised on Nutro Max. When I got my German Rottie I thought the same. One day I tried Purina One. He gave me as much love as he would with Nutro Ultra. He loves the dry food and yes gobbles it up. I can tell he likes this more than Nutro. He does not like it with water as with other foods. He is a very happy puppy. No changes with his coat from using the expensive food. Looking to try Beyond One when I take him off puppy food. Only concern is the need for glucosamine and chondroitin required for joints in large breeds. Otherwise love it, love it,and so does he.

Very Satisfied Customer!

We recently brought home our new lab puppy. Unfortunately his mom dried up after only 4 weeks. Normally I wouldn't expect a 4 week puppy to eat very well. I researched online for a good food for a lab who will be a pet as well as a working dog. I came across Purina One Large Breed Puppy and decided to give it a try. He loves it! I don't have to soak it in water or anything. He has been able to eat it dry from the day we brought him home at 4 weeks old. His stool has become normal and he has gained more energy. Next week he will go to his first vet visit. Unless the vet tells us we should switch and gives us a very good reason, this is the food he will grow old with (switching to adult later).

Puppy food my girl is excited to eat!

Got our German Shepard puppy end of July. She was underweight, had callouses forming on her hocks and elbows and her fur was dull and not growing well. Our vet recommended switching her to Purina One for large breed puppies. In the first month she gained 13# her callouses disappeared and her fur started growing in fuller and healthy. She's been on it for 2 months and is almost 50# and her ears are erect, her coat is shiny and full and she has the energy of the Ever Ready Bunny! I would definitely recommend this food for owners to try. My girl LOVES this food and barks at me till I set it out for her.

Quality food my GSD loves.

My 7 month old GSD loves it. Tried several different brands to see which one he'd crave the most. This is the one brand he'd consistently eat right away. I tried Royal Canin and Nutro Max, just to name a few, but this is the one he really enjoyed the most. I would recommend to a potential buyer to purchase the smallest bag available to see if your dog will like it. That's what I did and instantly knew this would be my go-to brand from now on.

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.

She loves it, We love it!

When we brought home our newly adopted 100lb, 10 month old Great Dane pup, first thing I noticed was her urine was killing our grass. I researched it and it is caused from getting too much grain in their diet. With her breed, we have to watch the protein/fat intake so that she doesn't grow too fast, which can cause joint problems. While researching different dog foods I came across this Purina One 28 day challenge and decided to try it since you offer the Purina One Puppy Formula for Large Breed Dogs. She used to eat a portion of her food and then go back to finish the rest, now she doesn't leave one kibble behind. She was a little rambunctious for a Great Dane to begin with, well I wouldn't mind if she would take it down a notch. Her energy level did increase with the switch, but also her black coat is so shiny and our grass is no longer turning brown when she potties!! Yay. Win Win for all of us!

Quality food

I tried several foods on my standard poodles but their digestion and stools showed a lot of non digestible ingredients. I saw it advertised during the Westminiter Dog Show and decided to try it.
The difference was remarkable. Their digestion improved and smaller stools indicating they were getting better nutrition. I also was able to reduce serving because they didn't eat as much.
