Rated 5 out of 5 by All Four Dogs Can't be Wrong! I have four full time hunting dogs (3 Labs 1 Pointer) and they could never all be satisfied with what I fed them. Started with IAMS, Blue Buffalo, Hill's Science Diet.... You name it. There was always one dog that refused to eat it. Last year one of my older Labs suffered an injury to his throat and my Vet recommended feeding him a "small bites" food so he could swallow it easier. I did My research and selected Purina One Smart Blend Small Bites. As soon as I put it in the bowls they ALL ran up and started eating it. They love it so much that I have to store it in a feed container or they try to get in it when I'm not around. They beg to be fed now. Their energy level is through the roof! Only downside - it does not come in 40# bags. (Not at any of my local retailers anyways.) Hey Purina! From the reviews I'm reading, you might want to start making more flavors and bigger bags! This stuff is a hit! June 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mr. Wiggles loves it! Wiggles is a very picky....very chubby pug. He is doing very well on this food. He actually lost a pound. He had previously been on Iams mature small bites. July 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Lil' Buddy loves this food! My little "Buddy" is a 2 year old rescue terrier mix (Shih Tzu and Jack Russel). He has a lower jaw alignment problem (under bite) and has to eat smaller food. I switched to Purina One small bites from Beneful tiny bites because he was not eating as much as he usually did. He only weighs 17 ponds and the vet was concerned he was loosing some weight. He loves beef flavor and I gave Purina One Beef and Rice a try. WOW! There was no slow transformation from Beneful to Purina. He sniffed it once then dug in... wiped the bowl clean. He had already eaten for the day when he did it. I keep his bowl half full all day (about 1.5 cups) so he eats at his pleasure. He loves this stuff!! December 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Small bites are perfect I have a dog with TMJ. The small bites are perfect for him since has trouble chewing. We have 6 dogs all rescue and they love Purina One. They all have healty checkups and they weight is perfect. The puppies started on the large breed puppy formula. I will continue with Purina One ! July 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our 2 Dogs Love It We buy the small bites because our small older dog can't chew the bigger stuff any more and Baby Ruth loves it. Our younger big dog Sandy Sweet Tea will only eat the small bites beef & rice. We tried the other flavors with bigger pieces, but she wouldn't eat them. We are sticking with what our dogs love to eat -Purina One Small Bites Beef & Rice Formula. September 1, 2013

She loves feeling good and being itch free. She says, "Purina One is the food for me."We give our best friend the best dog food...Purina. February 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chihuahua Approved My Chihuahua Peanut Butter is a very picky eater and had stopped eating his old food which led me to doing some research on a new food that he would eat and would also benefit him. I kept coming back to the Purina One website and researched all of their formulas and I talked with my dog's vet and other people and Purina One was always one of the brands that I was told was a good one to put him on. I heard about the 28 day challenge through the Purina One page and also watching videos of the challenge on youtube and I was going to give this food a try. Now on Day 5 of the challenge I can say that my picky little eater truly loves his food! He cannot wait for me to set his food bowl down and he cleans his bowl out every single time! I also noticed that he is no longer scratching like he did on his old food and his coat is more shiny and softer. I will be sticking to Purina One Smartblend Small Bites from now on. October 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nanci49 Our 2.5 pound chihuahua eats the chicken and the lamb variety. It is the only thing we feed her. It is wonderful. November 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by EXCELLENT We have big dogs 120 pounds, and we have 5 pound dogs. All our dogs love this. I wish it came it the giant size bag. My big dog JD was having all sorts of food allergies to other foods. We figured out he is allergic to all poultry. This food gives them the nutrients they need to keep healthy and a shinny coat, please they get full. November 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs love it. My 3 dogs eat it well. My older dog has arthritis and he is more mobile. November 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by They Finally Eat! My dogs are both pretty picky with their food and they NEVER finish their bowls of food, especially my chihuahua. Until now that is. They LOVE the Purina One Smart Blend Small Bites Beef and Rice Formula. They devour every piece and they come running now at meal times. November 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it dry! My pups usually only eat dry food if there is wet food mixed in. My tinier of the two (6lb vs 11 lb) loves Purina ONE dry also! November 20, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Small bites My dog would not eat the triangles and left them in a neat little pile in the kitchen away from the food bowl. He loved the chunkier pieces. November 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Lilybug is doing great with it! My baby was having a lot of gas problems. I asked my doctor what a good food was to give her to help her and she said that a lot of her pts were using Purina One and said good things about it! So I went and got her some Lamb and Rice and she loves it and has not had the first problem with gas! I am one happy momma here! Thank you Purina One for caring for my baby and creating a good food that is reasonably priced! November 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Food my dog will actually eat! My dog seems to love this brand. His energy has improved tremendously. His coat is alot softer. He eats every last bite of his food, he usally just picks out the parts he likes in other brands. Overall he seems alot happier.*I received this product for free from smiely360 for review purposes* October 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thank you!!! My dog is very picky and has a sensitive tummy. How ever since switching over has been a changed dog. More energy, coat softer and just plan happier. I tell all my family and friends what a great dog food. Thank you for making my choice easy finally!! October 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jake lovs it! My 12lb yorkie mix Jake lovs it! I can see how he enjoys the small morsels & now finishes his meals, looking's for more. Our choice to change his dog food from Iams to Purina has made Jake a happy camper! September 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog cleans his bowl! I bought this for my dog Louie and he loves it! He was previously on Iams and now he cleans his bowl with Purina One! His fur is so shinny and his allergies have actually been better! September 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally, something she will eat! I have a sweet little female Chihuahua that was a rescue. We found her running around the neighborhood with no tags, collar or microchip. No postings in any of 6 neighborhoods nearby either. She has signs of having been abused and is wary of people and doesn't seem to like anything I put down for her to eat. I have had her for 3 months and so far she just picks at her food. I've tried wet food and dry food and several different brands including some of the other Purina blends. Nothing seems to excite her. We recently had the loss of someone in our home that she had started to bond with so she stopped eating for a week. I finally opened a bag of Purina One and she was interested right away. She ate like she hadn't eaten in a month. Now she hops and dances for her food bowl once she smells the food. In 3 months I have not seen her this excited about eating. So thankful I stumbled upon this brand. I highly recommend it for picky eaters. January 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Small dog I have a small dog, and most foods that say small bites he still doesn't like because of the size. He loves how small the bites are and loves the food, he actually refused to eat my moms dog food and whined until I put down his new food :) Love this dog food! August 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality food My cocker spaniel loves this! She likes the small bites and has rejected other food now for just this one. August 15, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Purina one bite beefs I will never buy this food again. When I gave this to my dogs I found worms in it. July 5, 2015

I just opened a bag of your dog food to feed my two dogs.the SMELL was AWFUL smells like you bagged up a DEAD ANIMAL in the bag! We have been buying your dog food for years never thought I would run across this VERY DISAPPOINTED June 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Purina One Is The Best For Our Dogs We have 2 Yorkie's & 3 Mini Dachshunds , they all love Purina One. I change it up for them by buying lamb & Rice, Chicken & Rice & Small Bites they love them all and its good food for them I want the best for our dogs. I'm a breeder so when I sale my puppies, I also give a bag of Purina One Puppy food to the new owners because I start all my puppies out on the Purina One Puppy food and always tell everyone how good it is for the health of their puppy and you can buy it for small breed puppies also that all of our dogs love the taste. I have been feeding our dogs Purina One for many years, there is no other food I would feed them, its the Best !!! August 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Seven Maltese out of Seven, can't be wrong! I am not a professional Maltese breeder, just an owner and admirer of the breed, as I have raised pets and had pups for over 12 years. My Maltese girls can curl their nose with the best of them! But they are in full and unanimous agreement about Purina ONE, for small breeds. They love it! A bowl is always available to them 24/7, and they run and munch whenever the urge to splurge and snack attack hits them!! Even though I spoil them with occasional bits of pure meat off the stove, they "finish off" until full and content at their Purina One bowl. I have occasionally bought smaller bags of some of the other "top brands", but they choose Purina One bowl every single time. It is great! November 14, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what my pups need! After hearing that the first ingredient in my pet food should be meat, I began reading all the ingredient lists and settled on Purina One...but I was really DELIGHTED when I discovered the Small Bites as my boys are 8 and 10 pounds. Although I wondered why there was only one flavor in Small Bites, I was grateful for that. I don't feel the need to seek out high priced specialty food when I can get what I need from a brand that I trust! HOWEVER, I am very frustrated that I can no longer find this in the 8 pound bag!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Did you change formulas My schipperke will ONLY eat One small bites beef & rice dry food. I visited 3 stores today before I finally found it in stock, and they only had it in the 30# bag. I bit the bullet and spent the $31, only to get home and discover that there are NONE (not one) of the dark brown bits in the food like there are in the smaller bags. My dog roots through the food and eats those dark brown bits first, and will only finish the rest when there's no other option! Now I'm stuck with a 30# bag of dog food that my dog isn't going to eat. Please warn us when you plan to change your formulas! September 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for for my dog We gave this dog food to our second dog, a black lab named Pappy and he ate it for years. Now we have been giving it to our third dog, Euchee and she absolutely loves it as well. She has so much energy and stamina. February 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Will switch after seeing the comparison I received my monthly newsletter from adoptapets.com and it posted that Purina will donate $500.00 up to $5000.00 for every review it gets. I checked the comparison charts and the Small Bites Beef and Rice formula has Science Diet beat hands down. My vet recommended (means he sold) Science Diet so I believed him and that is what I have been feeding my pet. After reading the products list on both products, I will switch, but I am really switching because Purina cares so much and helps adoptapets.com on such a large scale that I believe they truly care about what people feed their dog. A company that cares so much for animals will get ny business from now on. July 17, 2013

    Adult Dog Feeding Instructions

    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 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 his waist is visible when viewed from above. Maintaining an ideal body condition can impact your dog’s lifelong health.

    Puppy Feeding Instructions

    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.

    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.

    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.
