Large Breed Puppy Formula Premium Dog Food

Purina ONE® SmartBlend® Large Breed Puppy Formula is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 101.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food! Won't use anything else! We decided to buy this food and try it after our dog lost a lot of weight. She was an outside dog that we decided needed an indoor loving home. So we brought her into our home and from either nervousness or being very excited she lost weight. She didn't want the food she was on previously and quit eating. I read some reviews on this after deciding I wanted something that was healthier and that she would respond to. At the request of the vet we started her on puppy food to put some weight on her quickly. She loved the food and within a week started gaining weight. In the 28 days she went from being about 10 lbs underweight to perfect and extremely happy. We were able to switch her over to adult food much quicker than we thought. She loves her food and we love that she is at a healthy weight and eating. I highly recommend this food! Great value and quality!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "Delivers on What it Promises" Dear Purina,Your SmartBlend Large Breed Puppy Formula was on sale one day, so my husband decided to try it for our 18-month-old rescue. She can be a finicky eater, so we were surprised at how much she loved this food. She's been eating it for 2 weeks and we've already seen many changes--her eyes are brighter, her digestion has improved, and we can personally attest that your claims of extra energy are absolutely true.And we hate you for it.Do you have any idea what it's like having a 120-lb Great Dane puppy with extra energy?? She's already like a bull in a china shop but, on your food, there's no stopping her. 2 walks a day and an hour's romp on the beach barely slow her down. She's still racing around the house like a lunatic for hours at a time.I'm sorry, but we won't be purchasing this food in the future. Seriously--we're worn out and the cats are nervous wrecks. We're going back to the stuff that makes her a lazy dog that is often mistaken for a piece of furniture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy and Happy Kids I am now the proud owner of a 4yr old male American Bulldog. He showed up on my porch one day looking a mess. His coat was thin and rough, eyes dull and a little underweight. My vet suggested Purina One Large breed. Tugboats fur is now full and soft. He is full of energy, has gained some weight and is overall healthy and happy.My parents found an abandoned Rhodesia Ridgeback puppy. Her ribs were showing everything about her was heartbreaking. I purchased a bag of Purina One for large breed puppies since the adult version of it helped Tugboat. Man oh man what a difference. She has gained weight and is now full of energy, beautiful coat, bright eyes the total package. She is a completely different puppy. She even wears Tugboat out when they play in the woods. THANK YOU so much for a quality dog food that does what it says AND is affordable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from She loves it, We love it! When we brought home our newly adopted 100lb, 10 month old Great Dane pup, first thing I noticed was her urine was killing our grass. I researched it and it is caused from getting too much grain in their diet. With her breed, we have to watch the protein/fat intake so that she doesn't grow too fast, which can cause joint problems. While researching different dog foods I came across this Purina One 28 day challenge and decided to try it since you offer the Purina One Puppy Formula for Large Breed Dogs. She used to eat a portion of her food and then go back to finish the rest, now she doesn't leave one kibble behind. She was a little rambunctious for a Great Dane to begin with, well I wouldn't mind if she would take it down a notch. Her energy level did increase with the switch, but also her black coat is so shiny and our grass is no longer turning brown when she potties!! Yay. Win Win for all of us!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Food Dear Purina One,We have been feeding Purina food to our canines for decades. We use Purina One Large Breed Puppy and Adult Food.We are blessed with Dobermans in our lives. Dobermans expected life span is between 7-10 yrs of age. Their life span is based on good nutrition, exercise, medical care, and so forth.We have had 2 dobermans live well past their expected life span. One lived to be almost 16 years of age and the other just turned 17 in May of 2014.Our 17 year old boy still jumps baby gates, still bounces around, chases the balls, and plays as if he is a 6 year old boy. Since he came to our house he has only been feed Purina One Large Breed.Our other dobermans are doing exceptional and we highly recommend Purina One Large Breed Puppy and or Adult dog food. I am positive our boy, our canines, are living proof of the great quality your food is for canines.Thank you for ensuring such quality in your food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Puppy Had Amazing Results I started my new puppy on Purina 1 Large Breed Puppy formula. Her energy went from a 3 to a 10+! Her eyes were a dull brown, and now they have golden flecks in them. Her coat is SO soft, and she has grown by Leaps and Bounds, compared to the other formula I was feeding her. The vet could not believe that I took an underweight, sick, rescue puppy, and turned her into an amazingly strong, and energetic puppy. They couldn't believe the difference in her after just 2 weeks on it. She gained weight and looked like a whole other dog. I LOVE this food and I will continue to use it now, forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality food my GSD loves. My 7 month old GSD loves it. Tried several different brands to see which one he'd crave the most. This is the one brand he'd consistently eat right away. I tried Royal Canin and Nutro Max, just to name a few, but this is the one he really enjoyed the most. I would recommend to a potential buyer to purchase the smallest bag available to see if your dog will like it. That's what I did and instantly knew this would be my go-to brand from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large Breed Puppy Food The vet told me my puppy was having growing pains in his legs because of his weight. He was 68 pounds at 7 months old! She said that the food I had him on had too high of a fat content. They put him on Gabapentin and Novox. A costly visit. They recommended a few different brands. So I did my research and tried the Purina brand large breed puppy food. He loves it and is much healthier!!! Chili thanks you!

Her coat is spectacular and her energy level is over the top! We have also been using it as a training treat for house breaking and general training commands. Our breeder feeds all 4 of his Newfies Purina One and they are thriving. I am sure Cookie will thrive on it too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Puppies are thriving!!!! Dear Purina,Thank you first of all for being a company that prides itself on not only paper testing but taste testing your foods for quality and health standards. One of my puppies was sick with diarhhea for a week, sending us to the vet with worry, where she was thoroughly checked out and our vet advised to change her food. I was feeding her Fromm Family puppy food (very expensive) and was informed by my vet that many dog food companies don't have the money to do thorough testings on their foods, and though they pass the standards on paper, they aren't necessarily great for our pets. After my puppy finished her round of vet dosed canned food, both my dogs went on Purina One Large Puppy. (Thank you for keeping your costs down on the food as well.) Both of them love it and are very healthy and thriving. They have lots of energy and just look very happy and healthy. My vet listed many options for food: Science Diet, Eukanuba, but when he mentioned that he knew the local county sheriffs K9's were on Purina One, I knew that was the one for us. So thank you for caring about the health of our puppies as much as we do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product My puppy loves this food. The biggest problem I had was locating it in stores in my area. I went to 4 different pet supply stores, 4 grocery stores and finally, I found it at Target! And, they only had 1!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from growth Since I put my Bella on Purina Puppy food for Large Breed dogs, recommended by my vet, her legs have begun to straighten and growth proportionately. Bella is a German Shepherd with great breeding but was the last of the litter to be picked because her knees and front legs looked "knobby and bowed". The breeder gave her to me for that reason. He knew I had no intention to breed her and didn't want what he thought was a deformity to be passed down. After a full vet check she advised the Purina puppy food for large breeds and massaging her legs. After 6 weeks her legs are perfectly straight and she runs like a Greyhound. Will definitely keep her on this food until she is 10 months old. Sure would like some coupons, lol!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My doberman puppy loves purina one large breed puppy I've been feeding my Doberman puppy "Axel" purina one large breed puppy since we got him at 6 wks. He loves it I worked in a huge corporate owned Pet store for 16 yrs and believe me I was frowned upon for buying this since they push all the expensive gourmet dog foods.....My 10 month old puppy now weight 95-100lbs. His coat is so shiny people always ask what I feed him and he is so healthy and happy ! I'll be honest I was guilted into trying one of the better brands I should say totally expensive , you know the more it costs the better????? and that was a disaster he had diarrhea soooo badd it was awful. I have promised Axel we will not change his food ever until he no longer needs the puppy then right to purina one large breed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Food that my picky puppy will eat!! This Purina One Large Breed Puppy Formula is the best. I have a 4 month old German Shepherd puppy that wouldn't eat any of the expensive foods we tried. He was very under-weight and had no energy. Our vet, who sold Science Diet and Eukanuba in her clinic suggested we try Purina One because she's heard such great reviews about it. We switched by mixing the Purina 50-50 with the Royal Canin German Shepherd Formula 30 that he was eating and he would eat the Purina and leave the Royal Canin. So we started feeding just the Purina One. Within 1 day, we had a whole new puppy. He was so energetic and almost seemed hyper. For the first time he started acting like a puppy. One month later and he looks great. We just had our third visit to the vet and she couldn't believe how great he looked. Thanks Purina!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful for my dogs' health! I have two young dobermans, They came from different breeders, one feeding a super cheap food brand and the other feeding one of those so called "premium" food brands. Both had decent coats, muscles and energy. After a short transition period I put them both on Purina One Large Breed formula to simplify feeding. The difference is so dramatic even my vet was shocked! They have almost like silk coats now. Super shiny and soft. They are growing puppies, but the difference is muscle tone is so amazing, likely because of the energy boosts! And that is the most shocking difference of all. I though they had plenty of energy before. Now they are almost non-stop! They have the energy to run miles in the dog park and never get cranky from being tired! They are both beginning basic training for search and rescue work and they even love the taste so much that we are using the food for training purposes, so no more worries about stomach issues from treats! It is so nice to know that if and when they complete training, they will be on food that will help them have the energy to push just a little longer and hopefully find just that one extra person alive. Thank you Purina!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puppy food my girl is excited to eat! Got our German Shepard puppy end of July. She was underweight, had callouses forming on her hocks and elbows and her fur was dull and not growing well. Our vet recommended switching her to Purina One for large breed puppies. In the first month she gained 13# her callouses disappeared and her fur started growing in fuller and healthy. She's been on it for 2 months and is almost 50# and her ears are erect, her coat is shiny and full and she has the energy of the Ever Ready Bunny! I would definitely recommend this food for owners to try. My girl LOVES this food and barks at me till I set it out for her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made the Switch and loving it When we got our puppy at 8 weeks from his breeder, she had him on another brand you can only buy at a specialty pet shop. We bought it and kept him on it for one bag but knew we didn't want to be tied to a food we couldn't get at a normal store. Our previous dog was on special food and several times we ran out with no way to get more immediately! So we looked around and decided on Purina One for our new pup. He gobbles it down and is healthy and right on track! We'll definitely continue with the adult mix when he's 1!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rotten Rottie-Shepherd likes it bowls full Been feeding LeRoy "Purina One SmartBlend for large breed puppies" (only one I found) W/1st ingredient CHICKEN, NOT Bi Products or grains, Available @ grocery stores W/price point @ $1.22 per pound it's not the cheapest on shelf BUT (IMO) His clear eyes, beautiful coat, happy, healthy, good energy, weight and His "finished product" is as it should be. MOST importantly NO smelly Dog gas and HE STILL LIKES IT! (after 5 mths.) LeRoy came into our lives as a stray/rescue he's staying as a Service Animal (in training). I chose Purina One over Hills (from Vet.), IAMS (from BB pet center), he didn't like the samples of Blue Buffalo (from specialty store) because of availability, cost, ingredients and willingness to eat. Purina One was the only one made with actual chicken 1st on grocery store shelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Fur Babies Love Purina One I have one senior dog, 2 large breed puppies, 1 small puppy, 4 cats and 3 kittens. They just finished their 28 day challenge and absolutely love Purina One. I work at a dog and cat kennel and a lot of our clients use Purina One, so I thought I would try it out on my fur babies. I am very pleased with the results of switching to Purina One. It's an excellent product without the huge expense of a high end, designer pet food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great nutrition, great price, great taste! Our boxer started out on Iams large breed puppy. He did okay but picked more than ate so we started mixing it w wet food just to get him to eat enough through the day. One day I bought a bag of Purina One large breed puppy w a coupon. BEST decision ever! He ate the entire bowl - DRY. The switch was made. He has never turned down his dinner - mixed or not. He is a VERY healthy happy 8month, weighing in at 55lbs. The food is also a great deal (we buy a BIG bag bc he is now an eater!) THANK YOU Purina.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hans is so much happier on Purina One Large Breed Puppy We adopted our German Shepard puppy, Hans 3 weeks ago at the age of 8 weeks, we brought him home and started him on Blue Buffalo Puppy Food. By the end of the 2nd week he was eating less and less at each feeding, we had to coax him to eat. He became less playful and more lethargic, he then started vomiting the food and by the next am he was vomiting yellow bile. Our Vet said to keep a close eye on him and call back if it continued. I researched the food that morning as I watched him and found on consumer affairs there were over 1500 complaints of other puppies and dogs getting sick on BB. My gut told me it was the food making him ill so I decided that morning we would switch his food. I researched other foods and chose Purina One Smartblend Large Breed Puppy to switch him to. He has now been on Purina One for a full week. From the 1st feeding he gobbled up his food. He gets excited when it's meal time, spinning in circles and at each feeding (he is fed 3 times a day) he eats all or almost all. We also use pieces of this as treats to train him and it works wonderfully as a treat too. Hans is now growing and playful, he also has a silkier feel to his coat. I am so relieved that we decided last Sat. to switch his food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rasing ThecRed Nose I started My 10 week old Red Nose on this product at 3weeks of age. It was on the Smart Blend product. It kept her healthy size and coat wise. She was 15 lbs at 8 weeks. I just recently was advised to put her on Blue Bufflalo by my pet trainer last week. I tried it for a week but noticed a decrease in her weight apperance, so today I decided to go purchase My Purina One Smartblend Large Breed and add it into her daily feeding schedule. Im goin to try to feed her 1 cup of Blue Buffalo for her 11 am feeding and 2 Cups of Purina for her 5 pm feeding and her soft can of Purina Pro at 10 pm. I shall do a follow up in three weeks. Thank you Purina for my 25 lb 10 week Female Red Nose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good food My 7 mt old pup was on blue buffalo cause *its the best* and like everyone else I wanna give him a quality food.. Being a coonhound shepherd mix he needs a good healthy diet.. i read reviews and made the choice.. We mixed the food slowly like i was advised and it took a week for him to get violently ill.. I thought we were gonna lose him.. Didn't think it was the food til I took him off and his condition improved.. He is now switching back to purina. The purina one smartblend is what my vet suggested and I'm done w the this is better than that.. Its a choice each pet parent needs to make and like formula for a baby it's ultimately the decision of who is eating it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Licks the bowl clean! my 67 pound 9 month old black lab mix literally licks the bowl clean! i remember when she was on her old food she waited til the last possible moment to eat (like when she is so hungry) but the first day during the switch process she tried to pick around the bits of purina one and tried to avoid the puppy chow.we also love this for convenience. the large breed puppy chow we could only find at wegmans (she was on that when we adopted her and the closest wegmans is 45 miles away) and this one we can get at walmart or stop and shop (3 miles away).Also we love that it has chicken as the first ingredient. we can tell that helps with her energy. And don't be discouraged by her weight. shes not fat, shes just big! Finally! Quality food that isn't expensive (only 6$ more a bag than the puppy chow) and she loves it!thank you for great food! It delivered all it guaranteed (shiny coat, energy, taste, digestive, etc) and thank you for the 28 day challenge. if it wasn't for that we probably would have never tried it. it made me feel safer. But i cant wait until we can move her to the adult large breed since we can get that almost everywhere where i livebut thank you for a great food

    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.

    The Importance of Ideal Body Condition

    Nestle 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.

    Recommended for Growth

    This product is for growth of large breed puppies and maintenance of adult dogs — not for reproducing or lactating females. If you have a pregnant or nursing female, we recommend Purina ONE SMARTBlend Healthy Puppy Formula.

    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 large breed puppies. 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.
