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 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 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 food my boxer loves I have a 1yr old boxer name Sadie. I initially started her off on Iams smart puppy at about 1o weeks old. I noticed that she wasn't so excited at meal times. I also was having a hard time finding her brand of Iams in the local stores near me. I really didn't want to have to travel to the nearest pet store, which was miles away to get her food. They were the only ones sure to have it. I asked her vet what food would he recommend that is a good brand, healthy, and that could be found in most local grocery and pharmacy stores. He immediately suggested Purina One. He didn't hesitate, have to think about it or anything. Upon trying it the first time I thought Sadie was going to do her usual I gotta eat it to stay alive routine. To my surprise after her first sniff, she dug into that food with so much vigor and excitement. I have never seen her so excited about meal time. She obviously loves it. She loves it so much, I have to limit her feedings so that she doesn't over eat and pick up too much weight. I have noticed that she has more energy. She is more excited and aware. Her eyes are bright and shiny and so is her coat. She is a solid 59lbs at 13 months. She's very healthy. I think Purina One was a great recommendation and is a great choice. I love it for her. I thanks her veterinarian for recommending it. I suggests and recommends this food to everyone, every chance I get. Did I mention that it is reasonably priced as well? It's a win, win for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purina One Lamb & Rice has been a lifesaver! I have been using your Purina One lamb and rice dog food for my very allergic dog (he would scratch and itch and break out in hives :(I have been using Purina one lamb and Rice since he was about 6 months old! ...We made the switch after we were buying very expensive dog food straight from our local veternarian clinic and it just cost too much!! Someone recommended Purina One Lamb and Rice and we tried it instead & had No signs of allergies!! Ive tried to put him on other brands.. cheaper.. hes a 70lb pitbull that eats alot!! I've always had to go back to your Purina One Lamb and Rice ! He never breaks out or has allergy problems with your product! He's 15 years old Now!!! I would like to try switching to your senior brand for him but im a little afraid as the lamb and rice specifically seems to be what works and if the senior brand has something other than what he's used to it...he might not handle it! Thanks Purina One ! Your quality dogfood product has been a lifesaver for my healthy senior dog!!

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 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 4 out of 5 by from My dog tried to eat just the Lamb bits avoiding the rice formula pellets. My dog is a 2 year old Pit Bull mix, and she is very picky about her food. I switched to the Purina Smart Blend Lamb and Rice formula, but since the pellets were in separated forms (meat versus rice), she was able to pick through the pellets eating the meaty ones. I had to prompt her several times to eat everything in the bowl. I did not have this difficulty with my other dry dog food. She seemed to not care about the difference in taste, but only that she could unsupervised eat the part of the mixture that she chose, leaving the other pellets on the floor near the bowl. I had to place these back into the bowl. Perhaps Purina can consider making the pellets together with both meat and rice, so this is avoided in the future. I am sure other consumers run into this difficulty too.

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 Food my dog LOVES Finally a dog food that my dog actually eats. We have went through so many different brands of dog food because my dog would eat it for a few weeks then turn her nose up at it and just quit eating. We switched to your brand and she loves it. I love the real meat chunks that are in your brand and I think she does too. I have also noticed a change in her attitude. She is more active and playful. She use to always just lay around which is unlikely of a 2 year old dog but since switching she is much more playful. Her dry skin issues have seemed to resolve as well. She doesn't dig herself raw or have flaky skin anymore. Thank you so very much for giving me my dog back!

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 Big Health Improvement I feed the lamb and rice blend to my 12 year old lab. Prior to making this change he was very stiff and lethargic and I was giving him his arthritis med twice daily and he would not eat his food some days. After the first week of switching to Purina One I saw a big improvement in his mobility, appetite and attitude. After 1 month he is running more and definitely eats all his food. I have also cut his meds to 1 pill daily. Purina One is working wonders! I highly recommend this product!

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 A food my dog actually likes. My dog is a very picky eater. With other brands,his food would sit in the bowl all day before he would decide he might as well eat it,he wasn't getting anything better. Now,as soon as the food hits the bowl,he's there eating. There is less waste because he is actually eating it. I'm not throwing out uneaten food. I am very pleased with the product and so is Fritz.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best for 15+ years..... I have been feeding this brand of dog food to my Dobermans for 15 + years and all of them are free feeders. They love it and eat it up!!! Their stomachs handle the change from the last food they received to this great mix of lamb and rice. They particularly love the nuggets that are added that are the soft lamb particles. I just LOVE this food for my babies!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Belgian Shepherd loves the Lamb and Rice formula I began feeding my Carmella this food over a month ago I was looking for a food she liked and would support her healthy lifestyle. This was it she's happier and much more livelier! She can't stop eating sometimes I have to move her bowl because she will eat it all in one sitting and then stand by the bag of food for more lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog actually eats it!!! I've met a lot of dogs, and my dog is the pickiest eater I've ever met. We've kept swtiching his dog food because after a couple days he would stop eating every other dog food we tried. We finally tried this and he actually eats it and it's been over a month! I don't need to add anything to it to get him to eat either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality food that my dog loves. This food is the best. My dog has very sensitive skin. Before learning this I would feed him chicken formulas of different brands. He developed hotspots.. Decided to try switching to lamb to help with his skin and it did wonders! My dog is picky. He lovesssss this food. He has been eating it happily for 5+ years now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Keno did not care of it My dog did not show anymore interest in this food than the other food we purchase. He would rather eat human food than any dog food but he didn't act like this food was better than his previous. Would I still purchase it? Yes if I had coupon and it was on sale. Would I go out of way to buy it at full price? No.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My pup loves it ! Started feeding my 90 lb. pit bull Purina One Healthy Weight Formula, a few months ago. He devours it, as soon as I put it into his bowl ! He has actually lost of couple of pounds too, which can't hurt !! Turkey is the "first ingredient" in this particular mix of Purina One.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality Both of my dogs love the Purina One Rice and Lamb mix, and it seems to not bother their sensitive systems to other dog foods. I like it for the meet that is in the recipe and the dogs just go nuts over the taste and flavor. A perfect food with a perfect price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste My 2 dogs,a Siberan Husky and a Terrier mix, love the chicken & Rice blend. They will pick out all the chicken pieces first & then eat the rest. I have to watch them bc the Husky will steal the chicken pieces from the terrier's bowl after he eats his own food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only food my dog will eat without coaxing I have been using Purina One Smart Blend for a while now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product We have fed this to our Weims from the start. The chunks of lamb mixed with crunchy kibble makes them slow down a bit and actually chew the food. They have great coats, good muscle tone and firm waste.

    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.
