Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't get enough My puppy was 10 weeks old when I rescued him. He was a skinny little thing so I wanted the best quality food for him no matter the price. I purchased a Wellness brand. I had to hand feed him and play games with the food to get him to eat it. His stool was always soft. Then I switched to Earthbound. Another expensive quality food that promised the world. He liked it a little better but still having a soft stool. My vet tech. recommended Purina One. She told me the fancy foods had a lot of fiber and berries in them and that everyone there fed there dogs Purina One.So I could not believe how much my puppy loves it. He is 5 months old and was still on the thin side. It's been a week and he already is showing signs of weight gain and spunk in his step.Now when it's feeding time he attacks the bowl like the dogs in the commercials. He abousolutley loves it.The price is reasonable and I'm happy with the ingredients. August 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality puppy food We have been feeding our older Border Collie Purina One for over a year and love the results. Just became the proud parents of two new BC puppies and decided that the best way to start them out is with Purina One Puppy Food. They love the taste and we love the nutrition they are getting. Border Collies are high energy dogs and need lots of nutritional value to keep up with what their bodies use daily. Their skin and coats are shiny and healthy and we get compliments everywhere we go on how great they look. Our vet even complimented their growth, eyes, and coats, being vibrant and healthy. Love your products and will continue to keep them Purina One dogs throughout their lives. March 4, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Want the best for my Dogs corn is not good for dogs,or cats. starch turns to sugar. will Purina make a food without these kinds of products. And will they ever give out any worth while coupons for a company that has been around for so many years. We are the owners of four AKC Siberian Huskies. October 19, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very High Quality food my pup loves! I've always been aware that puppies needed good food and just kindof assumed that all puppy foods were nutritiously similar. I thought to myself they should all be about the same right? Boy was i wrong. While strolling through my nearest Petco I saw the Purina Healthy Puppy Formula and it really intrigued me reading what benefits it has for your dog as well as the amount of protein and DHA it has! Having a growing pitbull i knew i was going to need a more high quality food at an affordable price and i was amazed. I almost challenged Purina with this one cause i read the bag and it said you get a full refund if no results show and I am happy to say that I will be sticking with Purina. His eyes are brighter, coat shinier, and overall a more solid dog not only physically, but mentally also! March 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by St Bernard Puppy Loves It I received a sick Saint Bernard puppy when he was 10 weeks old, he is now 12 weeks old. He was being fed nothing but junk food. Anemia, pancreatits, needs to be checked for a liver shunt. Vet bills, behavior, and his price are all that of a puppy mill. He's definitely a trooper for hanging in there.He tears this food up. Definitely need bigger bags, like 50-100 pound bags for this big guy. Petco sells 31.1 lb bags at $34.01 if repeat delivery.He loves it though. Just so I can eat without a begger, I put his food bowl down next to where I am eating. Works perfect because he's distracted. March 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good source of healthy ingredients We rescued our puppy when he was four months old and continued to feed him the food he came with, but he developed a food rash all over his tender belly. We switched him to Purina One Smartblend puppy formula and after a quick trip to our vet and continued use of Purina he is great, full of energy and loves to eat. Thank you for providing a quality food for him and other puppies! September 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stella is a Purina One Healthy Puppy We adopted our catahoula leopard dog mix, Stella, from the APA in St. Louis. The shelter fed her Purina One Healthy Puppy Formula and sent us home with coupons and samples. We continued to feed her Healthy Puppy at home and she is indeed one healthy puppy! Full of energy, shiny coat, no digestive issues at all. Now that she is a year old, we are switching her over to the adult Chicken and Rice food. Again, she has had no digestive issues with the switch. Stella will be a Purina One dog for life. July 10, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lucy Likes It! Lucy is now a 6-month old Black & Tan Jack Russell Terrier. She started with some very expensive food and she ate it ok, but was not excited about it. Switched to Purina One and she is more eager for her meals. Although, she wants the food her 1 year old brother eats! Her coat is healthy and she has tons of energy. We're sticking with Purina One!

Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent product for the price We started 7 week old Alexis, our golden retriever puppy, on this the day we brought her home. She spun circles to eat, as she was the runt of a litter of 9. She is now two, and healthy and beautiful. We still use Purina One, now for large breed adults. June 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The only pet food I trust for our fur babies The puppy formula I wish was a bit smaller in size since my babies are tiny. But they love this food. I have 6 Japanese Chin pups and want to keep them all healthy. This food is healthy and fills them up without over eating. June 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The one my puppy loves! My puppy Trooper gobbles up his food in seconds and licks the bowl after he is finished. I feel confident giving my baby puppy the proper nutrition. I will continue to provide him with Purina products throughout his life. July 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Puppy Chow My puppy loves loves loves it! I wouldn't trade it for any other dog food. October 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Puppy Food My puppy was 8 weeks old when I rescued her and this is the food she had been eating and my vet said this was what she should stay on. She loves it!! October 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally a food that works!! We have a 1 yr old male German Shepherd who has the most sensitive tummy. We started him out on the big expensive brands that the pet stores promote....he has been on blue, merrick,taste of wild, and wellness and every single one we would have the same issue of super soft stool and many stools a day and constant accidents of poo and not puppy accidents runny stool accidents and he wasn't gaining weight he was eating a lot but skinny. We were worried and took him to our vet and he told us to try purina one as that's what our local base uses for their work shepherds. Well he is going on month two and he is doing great he's eating well and has gained weight hes filled out looks so much healthier and he is pooing only twice a day firm normal stools.I definitely recommend this food to people and when I get the snide remarks on how it's not a good food well in my opinion a good food is one that your dog likes, is healthy, and the dog tolerates. And after trying so many different brands I am sticking with purina one. February 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect for my special needs dog Roxie is a shelter dog with a lot of health problems one of them being an inability to gain weight. Regular dry dog food she can eat on all day and still kept losing weight. i got a sample of the smart blend puppy and she loved it, especially the chewy pieces. it has enough calories and dense enough nutrients in it that she can maintain a healthy weight and it isn't so expensive as to be a problem affording it. She has gone from a scraggly puppy weened too early with patchy fur and constant vomiting and diarrhea to a sleek, happy, glossy furred little dog who is never too tired to play. I think this is a better product than a lot of the more expensive brands and tastes good so she actually eats it. I wasted a lot of money trying different fancy brands that she wouldn't eat or that made her sick. she's been eating this for a little over 3 years now and I have no plans on changing. July 16, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by my dog eats every bit of it Recently got a male german shepard. almost 2 months. Loves his food. June 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Puppy is loving it! We got a new puppy that we started out on a different (much more expensive) food. We changed to Purina One on a recommendation. He loves the food and is growing so fast. We will be staying with this food. June 7, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not so sure My puppy was eating Blue Buffalo. I decided to switch her to Purina Smart Blend puppy food. I started out with her regular food and mixing a very small amount of Purina to it. She would pick out the purina pieces and leave them laying on the floor. I tried this for 3 days. I then started mixing it with warm water and then draining off the water. She continued to pick out the purina and leave it laying on the floor. I would pick up the pieces and feed them to her like a treat. After a month, I am still mixing her food. I am not so sure she I should continue mixing it with her regular brand. March 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Research behind the product It's nice to go to a web site and actually read about the research that goes behind the dog food and why these ingredients were chosen. I feel Purina really cares about the food they make for pets and their owners. Just go to their online sites and look. They explain how they look at nutrition and why they choose the ingredients that go into their pet food. The ingredients they pick compliment one another so pets get all the nutrients they need to stay healthy. And they have such a wide range of products, even a picky owner can find something good for their pets. March 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Two Puppies Growing Strong! We have one dog, Rooster the Red Bone, I fed the Heslthy Puppy blend to last year. He is big, strong, and smart! That's why I chose to feed our newest pup, Willow the Walker Hound, the same. She is almost 4 months old and not only does she devour her food (I soak it warm water for easier digestion because she eats so fast) and she's growing just a strong and fast as Rooster did! Our hounds are hunters so we want them to be strong and healthy when they are out in the woods! March 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Puppy Loves It My puppy gobbled it all up every time. She loved it all. May 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by From puppy to adult with Purina ONE! I started feeding Purina One Healthy Puppy to my 9 week old rescue puppy and the results were fantastic. My malnourished little guy filled out, gained tons of energy and is now a healthy and happy 1 year old who just started eating Purina One adult dog food. Definitely would recommend especially if a puppy has been lacking in good nutrition. February 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The One* We got our Lab Mix at 12 weeks old. We went through 3 types of different puppy dry food and each one she would not eat or would only nibble for a little and never finish. Our 4th attempt the vet recommended Purina One and from day 1 she was hooked. It didn't have a giant variety of taste and she was picky and would only eat the brown ones so this recipe worked out perfect. She is 1yr old now and has been eating the same recipe since then without problem. The food gives her enough nutrients and she doesn't seem sick or sluggish from it at all. It's a bit pricier especially if you have a big dog but it's the perfect fit if your pup is picky. Highly Recommend! Will be switching over to the adult version soon... September 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Purina one smart blend dogs dream food I received my smiley 360 purina one dog food sample and coupon for a free bag ..as soon as I gave my dog it to try she ate it like she didn't chew it just swallowed it down .. I thought she loved Iams boy was I wrong she puts her nose up at it ..I mixed her old food in with the purina smart blend and she picks out the smart blend only .. I'm glad cuz it's grain free and way more better than the Iams .. my dog is usually very picky too .Thanks to my smiley 360 I got to try it and my dog is on healthy food because I wasn't sure where to start with all the grain free dog food ..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food for my puppy My puppy really liked this brand of food. She had no problems eating it! Glad we were able to find a puppy food that she really likes and wants to eat. February 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't get enough My dog would eat the whole bag if I let her! When I got her she was eating a cheaper dog food so I kept her on that because I didn't want to mess with her system so early on... I noticed she was itching a lot so I did some research and I changed foods. She LOVES purina! I have now switched my boyfriends dog as well! My only complaint about purina healthy puppy is that I wish it came in the 35 lb bag!!! January 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality food my puppy enjoys! My nine month old collie/beagle mix loves this! He looks forward to feeding time. He finishes every morsel! January 16, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by love it need bigger bah I foster for a rescue and i take in pregnant dogs from a local shelter. I had been using Puppy Chow for the pups but was aggravated about loose stools. Another foster recommended this dog food. I love it and the puppies love it. Their stools are much firmer now than it was on Puppy Chow. The downside is it only comes in a 16.5 lb bag. That last 2 days at my house. I curently have 8 8-weeks-old and 3 5 months old and i go through this size bag in 2.5 days. I wish it came in a 30 or 50 lb at a reasonable price. Otherwise i love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product When the challenge started Little Momma acted like she didn't want it but the second day she tried it she liked it. During this challenge she was injured but I think it was a good switch. Her coat is thicker and she has more spunk. I'm glad we switched. November 3, 2015

    Recommended daily feeding amounts for puppies with normal activity using a standard 8 oz/250 ml measuring cup which contains approximately 96 g of Purina ONE.

    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.

    When Feeding for Reproduction

    Purina ONE provides the extra nutrition needed by reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation. Food consumption may vary during gestation, so feed the amount needed to maintain the pregnant female's good body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation.

    The Importance of Ideal Body Condition

    Nestlé 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.

    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 puppies and reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation. 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.
