Feeding Guidelines

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 92 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 maintenance of 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.

The best dog food!!

I received this product for free for my honest review, your dog or dogs will love this, as soon as I poured it into their bowl they started eating it until it was all gone. I have been feeding them this for almost a month now and they have more energy, their fur is shiny, and their breath smells better. I would recommend this any day and I am still buying this so my babies are happy!!

My Dog Loves This Food

My dog, Zoey, LOVES this new food that we tried. She eats all of it at once as soon as we feed her and she wasn't doing that with her old food. Our cats even try to eat it if she's outside when we feed her, so they love it too! She's a Siberian Husky and her eyes are looking extremely blue lately and her coat is really shiny and she does have a LOT of fur, so that's a must in a food. I am so happy to have taken the 28 day challenge. I received a free product through Smiley360 for the purpose of my review, but these opinions are 100% my own and true.

Finally! Something all can eat and enjoy!

I have 3 dogs, ages 14, 11, and 3. I was having alot of trouble finding something with enough protein and minerals for my active guys and a food that was ok for sensetive stomachs and allergies. We tried a host of foods, sometimes giving each a different kind, having to buy three different bags of food. I read alot about the Purina True Instincts and decided to try the salmon and tuna. One, my dogs love the chewy pieces, the hard food is rough on the elders teeth, sometimes making it hard to chew. The lack of corn, chicken and beef has also eliminated the digestive and bathroom issues in all of them. They have more energy, are playful, their coat and skin look great and they are happy! Thank you Purina!!

Sir William the Pittie loves it!

I have a 3 year old pit. He absolutely loves this food. We switched about a month ago and he has noticeable coat improvement as well as firmer stools. We love it so much when I saw a couple in the store getting kibble I got them to go with the one. Five stars!

Astronomical Change in Just Three Days!

My GSD-Rottweiler mix girl is almost eight months old, and has been on Purina Healthy Morsels Puppy Chow since she was weaned at six weeks old. We love Purina, and have used it for our cat for several years. However, the Puppy Blend contains chicken (as ALL of them seem to) and processed chicken seems to keep my girl from a regular and solid BM. Because of this, I was not convinced that she was receiving the full nutritional complex that she needed. So we switched to the Adult P1 Salmon and Tuna blend (with a nutrient dense formula for my growing girl) and after only THREE DAYS, she has solid and normal BMs, is cleaning her bowl, sleeping through the night,and her coat is noticeably softer instead of being rather wirey. We hope to stay on this blend forever and cannot wait to see the positive changes as time goes on. Definitely recommend!!
