Feeding Instructions

The recommended feeding amounts indicated are based upon the average nutritional needs of an adult dog with a normal activity level (using a standard 8 oz/250 ml measuring cup, which contains approximately 113 g of Purina ONE).  Factors, such as a dog's metabolism, breed size, activity level, age and whether the dog is spayed or neutered, will affect the amount of Purina ONE needed to maintain an ideal body condition.  The pet experts at Purina have provided the feeding amounts indicated as a starting point.  If you find that your dog is losing weight or becomes overweight when fed these amounts, please adjust accordingly.  To help your dog maintain an ideal body condition, monitor your dog's weight on a regular basis, making sure that his ribs are easily felt and the waist is visible when viewed from above.  Maintaining an ideal body condition can impact your dog’s lifelong health.

IT'S NOT FOR ALL DOGS
Purina ONE True Instinct formula is specifically formulated for adult dogs.  If you have a puppy, or a pregnant or nursing dog, feed Purina ONE SmartBlend Healthy Puppy Formula.

MAY BE SERVED DRY OR MOISTENED 
Purina ONE may be fed dry or mixed with water.  If mixed, we suggest one part liquid to four parts Purina ONE.

MAKING THE SWITCH TO PURINA ONE
Although you’ll be anxious to see the difference Purina ONE can make in your dog, please allow 7 – 10 days to ease the transition from your dog’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 adult dogs. 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 dog daily.  Proper diet, exercise and veterinary care are the best ways to keep your dog healthy.  If your dog hasn’t had a check-up in the past year, please make an appointment today.

She is no longer picky!

From day one my dog has been enjoying the Purina one. She used to be a finicky eater, but she finishes every bite of this! her coat is shinier, and her stools seem better. I am definitely sold on this product.I participated in the 28 day challenge, and received a free sample of the food to try.

Was pleased with your product

Our story is very similar to others, that we integrated it with a very expensive food that we had left. Our dog Duke started looking forward to seeing us feed him. He too ate the meat pieces first and then the rest. Duke began eating more than usual and started putting his favorite ball in his bowl. We fed him his old food by itself as a experiment and he displayed disappointment and would not eat it for most of the day.
We are pleased with this product.

She actually begs for more

I have fed my dog Iams from the beginning as suggested by the breeder. She would eat it but she would never seem anxious to be fed like my other dog. Saw the advertisement for your 28 day challenge, decided to give it a try. Been using it for one week now, the change is overwhelming. She loves it, she actually wags her tail as she eats, first time ever, she gulfs it down and begs for more. Thank you! I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own.

Best food for your dog

I received a free sample from smiley 360 for the 28 day challenge and I couldn't be more excited. Let me start by saying the food smells like something a human would eat. It's soft enough for my old dog with tooth problems to chew. He's got energy he hasn't had in I don't even remember how long. I'm so pleased and will be buying this food going forward.

Great food at an affordable price!

Our 3 dogs are taking the Purina ONE® SmartBlend® True Instinct Grain-Free 28-Day challenge. The dogs enjoy eating it and it seems to keep them full. It has them going to the bathroom less and they seem healthy and happy. Their coats look great. Give this food a try! I received this product to test free of charge and the opinions are my own.
