Purina ONE® SmartBlend® Small Bites Beef & Rice Formula Adult Premium Dog Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 97.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pricey but full of good nutrition My dog is doing the 28 day challenge, thanks to the free product given to us for her to try by Smiley360. She seems to enjoy the Purina ONE SmartBlend True Instinct for small breeds as much as she likes any other brand of food we have given her. She doesn't seem to have any tummy or digestive issues since starting on this food. I like the real ingredients that are in this dry dog food. I like that it contains antioxidants for her overall health and longevity, glucosamine for her joints and Omegas for heart health. The same things I try to incorporate into my own diet! It is priced higher than the brands we usually feed her, but I would recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste and a healthy meal! My Bichon will only eat the beef small bites ane he loves them so much that when I switched to Purina I gave him all Purina and he gobbled it up in 2 minutes. I added a little water and tossed it in his bowl to make a gravy and he eats in down every night without walking away like he did with his old food. He is a much happier boy and I can tell by his coat and behavior its a healthier choice for my dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Dog Food - But I can NEVER find It My pets love this dog food, but it has become so hard to find in the 31lb bags! I have to medium size dogs, and this is the only flavor that they enjoy. Now I have to pay an arm & a leg to purchase it online! No bueno Purina! No bueno at all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, something she's excited about We adopted our 1 year old lab from the Humane Society about a week ago. I had bought a large bag of Pedigree, which they said she had been eating there. She was not enthusiastic at all, flipped over a full bowl and covered it with straw. She liked Kibbles and Bits better, but still didn't seem very excited at mealtime; I needed to get her interested by handfeeding a few pieces. I bought a bag of the Purina One Small Bites Beef and Rice today and fed her some at dinner tonight. She needed no encouragement, and had it finished in no time at all. Not sure if it was the beef taste or the smaller pieces, but she LOVED it. Guess this will be her usual meal from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thanks for my healthy, happy dogs! We've been using Puruna One for over 15 years. When we first became dog owners 20+ years ago, we tried many expensive brands, but the dogs did not like them. We were so happy to find Puruna One, something healthy they all loved. We use small bites to suit our big and small dogs. They love the taste. We currently have a 10 year old husky/lab mix, a 5 year old Maltese, and a 2 year old Pomeranian. This is the only food they have ever eaten. I've recently noticed that many of my friends and neighbors dogs, who are six years or older, have lots of health problems, look, and act old. None of my dogs have ever been to a vet for a sick visit. They are all incredibly healthy. Not one of them is over weight, they do not have stomach, hair, or skin issues. They all have beautiful, healthy, white teeth. My ten year old dog looks and acts like she did as a puppy. We haven't witnessed any signs of aging on her, though she's a little better behaved. I was just sitting here thinking how blessed I am to have such happy, healthy pets and I want to thank Purina One for providing such a wonderful and affordable product that I know has benifitted our lives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for her food my furbaby loves! My pomerian just loves this food. And I like the fact the it is made of great quality products and I feel good giving it to her. The only downside is that she loves the softer beef peices so much that she picks them out and eats them all first leaving the crcunchy kernels for last. Thanks #smiley360 for the chance to try this product for free. Otherwise I wouldn't have made the purchase and knew how much my furbaby loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love this food I have two small dogs (12 pounds) and they devour this food. I can clearly see how much they enjoy it as well as giving them more energy. The size of the kibble is perfect for them. I would only wish this came in more than one flavor in the small bites just for variety's sake.I received a free product for the purpose of my review from Smiley360. Opinions are 100% my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a keeper! I got to try this product for free in exchange for an honest review by being a member of smiley360. I just fed the beef and rice formula to my dog and she devoured it. She never eats her regular food that fast. Usually she eats half and goes back for snacks afterwards but not this time, she didn't stop until it was gone. We are now switching over to this food instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dog food My pets love the dog food we sampled for free thanks to the coupon I received from Purina in exchange for my review of the food. My dogs loved this food. I love the small bites and that it is healthy and easy for them to digest. There is a wide variety of flavors that I am sure my dogs would love to try but I went with the small bites as they are small dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from purina one large breed and purina one small bites Have a Boston terrier and old English bulldog who are a big part of my family. Our Boston terrier was very finicky and having digestive issues with every brand recommended for her breed. Since starting small bites she is loving her food and no more digestive issues. Our bulldog is also enjoying his large breed Purina one. Our vet told us he wished all dogs looked as healthy. I recommend Purina one to all dog lovers. Thanks for making a great product.

    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.
