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.

My dogs Love Purina

I got a free sample of Purina One SmartBlend to try on my dogs. They all loved it. Of course I wasn't surprised. Purina is a brand name we can all trust.

The boys are loving it!

We switched our two lab/shepherd mixes to the Purina One Real Salmon & Tuna and they are loving it! One of the dogs has a sensitivity to a lot of foods we have tried and he is doing really well on this. Their coats are soft and shiny, and my older dog seems to have lots of energy! We will definitely be keeping them on this!

Im glad they like it!!

The first thing I notice within the first week was their breath. I know part of the bad breath comes due to the need of a teeth cleaning, but I think Purina One True Instinct Salmon & Tuna it helps at least a little to neutralized it. I'm glad that I took the challenge. I today I bought the 3rd bag with the help of some coupons that I found online. They are enjoying it!! I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% m y own.

Third time is the charm!

This food is wonderful! Dexter, my one-year old Black and Tan Jack Russell Terrier, loves it!!!!

We started on a very expensive puppy food and he liked it; but when we switched to the adult formula, he refused to eat it. Upon a neighbors recommendation, we tried the Purina One Chicken and Rice Formula. He like the chicken part, but picked out the pieces he didn't like. Then we tried the Venison formula and it was better, but he was happy to let his little sister eat his food and he would eat hers! Then we hit the jackpot with the Salmon and Tuna. He chows down every meal! His coat is shiny and energy is high. And he looks at me with such adoration when I feed him.....

Sasha and Spencer we're in love at first taste!

At first I wasn't sure if they would enjoy the taste as for life (6 years) they have been fed primarily beef, chicken and poultry flavors. They went nuts! I wasn't thrilled with the smell but soon got over it. I noticed increased "puppy-like" activity and firmer consistency in stool, not to mention smaller stools. Plus, plus, plus! A definite keeper.

My dog loves it!

I got it free to try. My boy dog really liked it he could not even wait 2 seconds to try it. I like that it has chicken in it. I think Maxie would say this food is a winner.

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!!
