Lamb & Rice Formula Adult Premium Dog Food

Purina ONE® SmartBlend® Lamb & Rice Formula Adult Premium Dog Food is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 295.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs loved it! I have two dogs, a Belgian Malinois and a German Shepherd. The Malinois will eat anything, however the GS is very picky and has turned down many different brands of dog food and treats. Even her current food, she eats reluctantly. When I opened the bag of Purina One SmartBlend Lamb and Rice, they couldn't wait to try it. The GS actually stuck her face into the bag and began chowing down! Of course the Malinois followed suit. The first thing I noticed about the food was the wonderful smell. As I poured the food into their bowls, I was amazed at the amount of meat included-- and large chunks too. Both dogs quickly ate it all and were hoping for more! I'm definitely switching their food to Purina One SmartBlend! So glad I found something my dogs are excited to eat. I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picky Dachshund Approved! I received a coupon to try a bag of Purina ONE SmartBlend dry dog food for free through Smiley360. This was part of the Purina ONE 28-day challenge in which you notice your dog liking the taste, having more energy, better digestive health, healthier looking skin and coat, brighter eyes and better dental health over the course of 28 days. The packaging seemed pretty decent and informative. I didn't really notice too much in regards to what this product says should be noticeable mainly because these things already exist in our dachshunds. The number one thing that was noticeable was that they enjoyed the taste! One of our dachshunds is very picky and needs coaxing and watching to get him to eat pretty much any dry food. That was not the case with Purina ONE SmartBlend dry dog food (lamb & rice). He stuck his nose right in there and devoured it which he never does! That alone makes it a winner in my opinion. I have and will be recommending this product to friends and family and it will be a regular buy for our dogs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice coat with a taste my dogs love My husband and I have 7 dogs sharing our house ranging in ages from 2 years (Am Staffordshire terrier) to 15 years (Australian Shepherd) who all love Purina One Lamb & Rice food. Over the last 15+ years we have fostered and re-homed well over 300 dogs of all breeds - each being fed Purina One Lamb & Rice. This food has provided the proper nutrition for them to become healthy, happy dogs with beautiful shiny coats no matter what situation the foster dogs lived in before coming to us. It is amazing to watch a dog who comes to us with a dull, poor coat transform into a healthy happy dog with a nice, shiny, healthy look. Without a good nutritious dog food this transformation would not be possible. As we find new loving homes for each of them, a small bag of Purina One Lamb and Rice goes with each of them in their adoption packet along with our educating the new owners about proper nutrition for their new dog. Thank you Purina for your help in providing a quality nutritional product and helping us help dogs in need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog inhaled this I was lucky enough to get to try this for free to review and give my honest opinion on. I have to start by saying my dog is the pickiest eater so it's really hard to find food that she will eat and not upset her sensetive tummy. I was super excited to try this because of the natural blend of ingredients meaning less irration on her tummy and a lot healthier for her. As soon as I pour it in her bowl she was all over it and I could tell she really liked it mainly because it was gone in less than a minute. Of course i thought she was just excited to get new food and would hate it later but low and behold the a whole week later and she it still inhaling it as soon as it hits her bowl. The other plus with this is her tummy issues seem to be much better she isn't as gasy and she is going out with out any issues. Lastly there are so many different flavors that I feel that if this one was so great that if she does get bored or want to try something new I feel confident that she will love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog eats it like it's candy! I and my dog Amber have reviewed and tested Purina One Smartblend dog food. I redeemed the coupon I received for free for a bag of the Lamb and Rice formula for her. Upon purchasing, the bag seemed sturdy and unlikely to rip easily. I did have to cut it open with a knife. After scooping a serving for Amber I found that the food smelled much more appealing that other dog foods we have fed her; it actually smelled like real food. Amber stood by closely watching for her new food. As I tried to set her bowl on the floor she already had her face in the bowl gulping as much of the food as possible. Purina ONE Smartblend has definitely earned our seals of approval.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 3 dogs love Purnia One Smartblend Lamb & Rice I have 2 one yr old sister Lhasa Apsos and a mixed collie that is 4 years old. Alabama will eat most any food but her sister, Ziva is extremely picky. The collie, Festus, has always eaten Beneful but this summer he became picky as well. Needless to say it has been an expensive try & failure period to find a food pleasing to all 3 dogs. The biggest failure was Dog Chow(thanks for the coupons anyway). Festus would actually dump the food out & then cover it with his bowl! I came to realize Dog Chow has no odor to attack or inspire the dogs to eat it! Fortunately, I found a coupon for Purnia One Smartblend Lamb & Rice. Problem solved, they love it! They also love the Chicken & Rice formula. Although I have tried other brands of Lamb & Rice/Chicken & Rice, Purina One Smartblend is the brand they love. I'm planning to try the cat formula as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beats the expensive brands everytime When I got my puppy, I wanted to be the good dog mom and bought the expensive foods. She always had Innova, Blue Buffalo, or something similar. When I adopted my second dog, i really started reading labels- and price tags. I made the switch to Purnia One SmartBlend and they both loved it. My new dog's shedding, dandruff, and skin issues cleared up almost instantly. When I got married, I had more money to spend on food, so we tried Blue Buffalo again. My dogs got fat! And Farley's skin was a mess again. Neither one was ever excited for feeding time. I talked to my vet and was assured that Purina is just as good as the pricier models, and better for the dogs' weight. The dogs literally jumped for joy when they saw the SmartBlend bag come in the house! They can't get enough of those tasty morsels. For a treat every now and then, I switch to the chicken. They love them both.Now that I foster dogs, the rescue sends them with the top of the line, all natural, 4 ingredient foods. Usually the only way to get them to touch that stuff is to put some smartblend on top!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for skin and coat I have a Border Collie, as he got older he was having skin and coat problems, itching, hair loss, skin allergies, etc. We tried several different treatments from our vet as well as homopathic remedies without much success. Decided to try some of the more expensive dog foods, he would not eat them, had to give it away. Went with Purina One Lamb and Rice, he loves the taste and he now has a beautiful red coat again. He never scratches, or bites himself, and his fur is thick and shiny and hasn't been this healthy looking since he was a puppy. I have recommended this product to several of my friends for their dogs because I am amazed at the results we have gotten. Anytime anyone mentions their dog I give them my testimonial, it is a joke that I am a Purina One spokesperson. I wish that I could attach before and after pictures of him so that you could see the difference in his coat, it is truly amazing. He went from a dry, scratchy, damaged orange coat, to a beautiful, thick, full, soft deep red coat. Great Product that is not only good for my dog but has the taste my dog loves, at a price anyone can afford. Thank you Purina.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog seems healthier I took the Purina 28-day challenge where I got a bag for free from Smiley360. When I first fed my dog, she loved the taste and was looking for more food. After a few days, I noticed that she had more energy and would want to play throughout the day instead of just at night. Recently, I also noticed that she has softer fur, probably the softest her fur has ever been. Her eyes are also brighter making her light brown eyes pop out even more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scotty Dog Paw of Approval My vet recommended I put my two Scotty Dogs on the Purina One Smart Blend lamb and rice formula. They had allergies to other dog foods. It worked! No more scratching! Both dogs love the lamb and rice and lick their bowls clean! I really like that this dog food contains no added fillers or artificial flavors!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my dogs allergy I have a Neapolitan mastiff and a Maltese. My mastiff is allergic to chicken so we tried many brands of food that pet stores recommended and finally we found lamb and rice formula. They both love it and the pieces are small enough for my Maltese to enjoy also. Great find!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensitive Stomach My Autumn is a 9 year old Pekineses mixed. This last year I noticed that after she ate, a few minutes later she would throw up. Since I have two other dogs I was concern about changing out their dry food. I researched ALL brands of dry dog food. I came across the Purina One Dog Dry SmartBlend and read about the product as well as the reviews. but not just from the Purina site. I went and picked up a bag with the Lamb and rice. All my dogs love it. It is so funny how each one eats a certain flavor first and then eats the rest of they food. But the best thing is Autumn can digest her food and it doesn't come back up. As a matter of fact, all my dogs enjoy it and tolerates this food very well. It is a must try for everyone! I also discovered that Autumn can't tolerated food or dog snacks that is red. This was something she had developed as she has aged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs really liked Purina! My husband and I have 2 rescue fur babies, a coon hound mix & a border collie mix. They definitely have different appetites & personalities so it was interesting to see how they would react to a new food being introduced. My coon hound, Sadie, is very high strung and very food motivated! She is not picky so she loved the Purina! Sasha, the border collie mix eats at her leisure & can be picky, but she loved it as well! I like that it helped them maintain a healthy weight & healthy coat as well. We have them the wet food to try as well from Purina One & they couldn't eat that fast enough! It was a nice treat for them. I would recommend it for sure! *I received this product for free for my honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DELIVERS! All the way around! After having my Rottweiler puppies on what I was told was the best food (Blue Buffalo) for over a year I made the switch. Not only were my pockets empty but my dogs got sick out of no where. They were vomiting and had watery stools and my babies were looking bad. I tried 3 other "high-end" brands before switching to Purina. Not only did their stomachs accept the new food but I came to find out 2 more of my close friends did the same exact thing for their dogs (Rottweiler & Pit Bull Mix). My dogs eat all of their food without need to add wet food. They love it and so do I. I am so happy to have stumbled upon this life saver. Let me add, that my pockets are starting to fill up again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and dogs love it We always buy the largest size bag of Purina One lamb in rice formula in the store. In our community, the prices at PetSmart are more economical than anywhere else. The dogs love it, although we periodically buy other flavors (of Purina One) to see how they like it. So far, lamb and rice is their favorite but we completed the trial fairly recently, so will try them on other flavors periodically.Although we did the trial with the dogs, we are also buying Purina One for the cat because we had such good luck with the dogs. (The cat was very interested in the new dog food, so we just started buying it for him without doing a trial.) It is interesting that our animals smell the bags of food immediately when we bring them in the house from the store. The bags are still sealed. They know the food is for them, and the cat always demands a dish of it immediately. He is very obnoxious if he doesn't get it.Our animals are healthy and happy, and the Purina One is much more economical than the products we were using previously. I'm sure this is because the other products are full of cereal fillers and the Lamb and rice formula is not. They eat less, and are well satisfied. Because of this, our daily cost is actually lower than it was previously.We appreciate the coupons and other perks that Purina has provided.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finicky Eater is Less Finicky Shilah will be 7 years old in December 2016. Since she was a puppy she is very cautious of what she eats. She had breakfast and dinner. She did fine with the puppy chow, then we went to Pedigree. She would always go through phases of not eating her breakfast. We would entice her by putting chicken juice or ham juice in her food but we could not do that all the time. Then she was almost poisoned by the Pedigree food. We switched to a few others like Nature (which was expensive) then to 4health for a couple times but that became pricey. so we went to beneful. Still going through phases of a week of only eating one bowl of food instead of two. About 4-6 months ago my husband tried the Purina one. It had the meat in it and she loved it. The phases have almost disappeared. She eats much better now with this food than she did with anything else. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another homerun for Purina SmartBlend my german shepard has been very picky lately with eating her food so i decide to slowly change it to something new. she is very spoiled with wet food on her kibble and i think that may be the reason. recently we tried purinas grain free dry food since I received this product free for the purpose of my review. she doesnt hesitate to this food and eats the entire serving she is given. i used my coupon to buy the bag of lamb by purina smartblend and she loves it as well. im very happy to keep my pup happy and healthy with good food. i may just keep her on this food. this opinion is all my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs and cat love Purina One Both my dogs are rescues. Charlie, my golden is 2 years old and was in bad shape when I got him. Now he is a very healthy dog. His coat has improved immensely. He loves the lamb and rice the most. Mister, my Red-Nose English Staffordshire /Pit Bull was my brother's dog. He is 11 years old. I enheirted him when my brother passed away in December 2015. Mister was a Gravy Train dog. He absolutely loves the lamb and rice. Usually he would leave half the bowl of Gravy Train but the Lamb and Rice, he licks the bowl clean. I will always feed Purina One to the dogs. My cat, Winston has kidney problems and Purina One has a dry cat food for him. Thank yoiu so much....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good food at a reasonable price Having raised rottweilers for over 20 years, I have done a lot of research trying to find the best food for their health. Each of my dogs have had unique needs, and there have been a lot of sacrifices to provide the right food for their various needs. Ingredients and nutritional balance of this food is on par with the top foods I have used, and at a fair price point. Our three dogs are doing great on this food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One happy puppy I have an Olde English Bulldog that loves this food. She enjoyed the taste right off. I took the 28 day challenge through Smiley 360 after they sent me a coupon for a free bag. I am very happy with the results. My dog sheds alot and I have noticed a definite difference in her coat and skin since starting the challenge. I will definitely continue to use it and look forward to trying different flavors with my dog

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good food My pup is on the 28 day challege from smiley360 so I recieved it for free. She has been on this food for two weeks. She is eatting and doing well with the food. Not sure about coat difference maybe she needs more time on the food or maybe her coat is at its fullest not sure. I will keep an eye out in the next couple weeks. I'm just happy she is eating the food she is picky when it comes to dry food

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Three Happy Dogs I have three dogs and they all love your lamb and rice formula. Every time I put the food in their bowls, they all do their "happy dance"! My girls will eat the chicken and rice, but they aren't nearly as happy about it. The last bag I bought didn't have very much lamb in it, but they still ate it. I don't have access to a printer so I would greatly appreciate it if you would mail some coupons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chewy loves her food now I got Miss Chewy from a shelter. She's a mixed terrier. Chewy didn't seem to like anything I gave her to eat, including treats. I finally tried the Chicken and Rice. She loved it! Then for a change I tried the Lamb and Rice. She loved this also! Wow, I'm so relieved. Now I take turns after each bag finished. She's looking so healthy and has so much spunk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Both dogs love it I have two dogs, one med poodle and on border terrier, both finicky eaters. Have tried so many other dry foods in the paste, some of the most expensive and they don't touch, it goes to waste. Both dogs love this. I truly recommend it to others. It pleases me they are finally eating dog food that is good for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moses Approves! I received this at a discounted price/free. My dog is very picky with what he eats. This product however was not one of those problems. He seems to lick the bowl! I see that he has some more energy as well, all in all I am very satisfied with this product and would recommend it to friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yum My dog enjoyed his free sample. I like that the smell doesn't knock you down when you open the can. It comes out of the can smoothly and easily, which is also nice. Also, I can store the other half of the can in the fridge and it doesn't stink up my other foods.

    The recommended feeding amounts indicated are based upon the average nutritional needs of an adult dog with normal activity (using a standard 8 oz/250 ml measuring cup, which contains approximately 96 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.


    Start puppies on moistened Purina ONE as early as they will nibble at solid foods, generally 3–4 weeks of age.  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.


    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.

    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 his 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. 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.
