Purina ONE® SmartBlend® True Instinct Formula With Real Turkey & Venison Dog Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 594.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kingsley loves it. When I got Kingsley his privious owner was feeding him Nutro Lamb and rice. I took him off that due to issues in the past and we tried the One Source Lamb and Rice. First time Kingsley ever tried to get into a bag of dog food. He loved it two months ago the store didn't have the lamb and rice and I was low so I purchased the Venison and Turkey formula and I honestly think he likes it better. I will continue to use this product his coat looks better and he hasn't had any "allergy" issues since I started the ONE line so I'm staying here. Great price, Great food, Happy dog!!! Thanks for making a great product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very happy dog loves this product I was provided some free cans of this dog food by PurinaOne and Smiley360 in exchange for my honest opinion. I knew my dog would LOVE this dog food. She is never a picky eater, but she was interested before we even opened the can. Even my cat came to investigate and enjoyed a sampling. I have fed my pets Purina products for over 20 years. I know it makes a difference and I trust Purina to provide wholesome, nutritious food for my animals. This dog food was like a taste sensation with my dog. She wolfed it down and begged for more. The ingredients list not only provide the dietary requirements for her daily diet, but are good and honest quality. I definitely recommend this dog food for all stages of a dog's life. I do also recommend that your dog be fed dry food sometimes, or a dental chew to make sure they don't build up tartar from a solely soft diet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy lab at age 16 going for 17 I wanted to write a review and thank Purina One. I have been feeding my dog Raven Purina One since she was a puppy. Raven turned 16 years old back in September and is still healthy and alert. She has arthritis and is deaf and all the things that come with an older dog but her overall health is solid. The amazing thing is that she is a Labrador Retriever. Labs typically do not live this long and i am grateful for every day i am blessed with this wonderful dog in my life. In this day and age of super expensive supposedly healthier alternatives I stuck with P1 and I am happy I did. My dog loves the food, carries her dish around in her mouth constantly because she wants some. Thank you again Purina One for contributing to my dog's long and happy life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only the best! Purina ONE SmartBlend True Instinct went beyond my expectations. My pup couldn't seem to get enough of it! When i was offered the chance to receive this product for free in return for my honest opinion, i jumped at it. My pup is very picky and has a sensitive stomach so i am always trying to find something she can keep down but is also good for her. I can truly say that Purina ONE SmartBlend True Instinct is now our favorite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Dogs As a Hunter and Dog Handler I require more out of my dogs than the average owner. Having 6 dogs to feed and maintain isn't always the easiest. I was looking at switching dog foods early this year after the hunting season wraps up. I have been feeding my dogs the True Instinct Wet Food to increase calorie intake, maintain body weight and stamina during the season. I was extremely satisfied with the wet food that I decided to try the dry. The process of switching was easy and there were no intestinal issues with any of my dogs. They appear to appeal to the flavor of the dry food and the quality seems to be consistent. The Protein and Fat content are important and the ratio is what I need and require for working dogs.I use approx 150lbs of dry food and 3 cases of wet food per month. There is constant rotation to ensure freshness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bo and Jake LOVE It Bo is a Catahoula/Border Collie Mix, he has always had trouble with dry skin in the fall and winter months. Itchy Itchy..Jake is a Full Blooded Catahoula Leopard Hound who has had trouble with both his hind legs...pulled tendons and such. We started the 28 day challenge with the Turkey and Venison and they loved it. I noticed that Bo was not as itchy because of the dry skin and Jake is actually getting more lean. Both of their coats are shiny and they have great energy. Bo will be 12 in March 2017 and Jake will be 10 in February 2017. They sure don't act it. We are very happy we made the switch for our beautiful boys!!! Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My GSD, Sadie, Loves Purina One True Instincts Turkey & Venison My German Shepherd, Sadie, just loves the Purina One True Instincts Turkey & Venison. I've tried her on several other brands because she tends to be finicky when it comes to eating but she seems to like this one the best of all.I've been feeding my dogs Purina for the past 30 years and always had healthy, strong dogs that mostly lived to 14 and they were all large dogs, German Shepherds and Huskies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picky Eater No More I have an American Pitbull Terrier who was a very picky eater. It would take her all day to finish her bowl of dog food. She had bad gas, bad doggy breath and kept excessively pooping in the backyard it was a bit too much. She was on a lamb and rice diet and we had tried other expensive brands but nothing seemed to work or take until we hit the Mother load when we found Purina One Smartblend True Instinct Turkey & Venison dog food. She absolutely loved it and ate it all up in one serving. She never left her bowl until it was licked clean. Bowl licking good, she never did that before. Thank you Purina for developing such a good healthy choice of dog food. If I eat Turkey and Venison why shouldn't my dog be able to as well. You've made my Cali girl very happy. No more gas,no more bad breath and finally pooping normally in the backyard. Her coat has never looked better. I can also tell the positive change in her personality. If she could talk she would thank you guys as well. Thanks again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs new favorite snack food My dogs love this food. As soon as they hear my open the can they come running from all over the house. Our one dog is about five pounds over weight and we've tried everything to help him lose weight but nothing we tried has helped. We put him on this food about a month ago and he has lost two pounds. He only has three more to lose. I am so happy we finally found a food to help him lose weight. The only thing I do wish, is that they made this in dry food as well. Our three other dogs get the poops from wet food but we still give it to them once every week or so because they love it so much. I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love it! I have a dog that was very picky about his food. He got so skinny you could see his ribs. The vet said he was healthy, no reason for him to be so thin. I tried blue Buffalo and it made him sick. He wouldn't eat any of the food I tried. Then my friend told me her dad, a veterinarian, only feeds their dogs Purina one and Purina pro plan. I gave it a try and he loves it!! It has been 2 months and he is eating! I can see the difference. His ribs are not as defined, he is getting some meat on his bones! I'm beyond happy with this product. Thanks!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a change I had starred my dog on another major brand but it got to a point where he wasn't eating as much he would snack through out the day rake a few bites here and there but wasn't eating enough to maintain his weight or health, one day I was in the store and the purina bag caught my eye. It had turkey and venison in the dog food so I tried a small bag of it my dog ate the entire bowl and was looking for more. He is so much healthier, more energetic, and gaining muscle. I couldn't believe that you could actually smell the venison in the food

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mini Dachshund Approved I have always feed my long-haired miniature dachshunds a specialty, veterinarian recommended dry kibble, with excellent results, but find it a hassle to have to make special trips to the specialty pet food store, so I took the Purina One SmartBlend 28 day challenge. I found it appealing that it comes from a trusted brand, so I can be assured it is quality tested, and nutritionally balanced, with the added convenience of being available at most grocery, mass merchandise, and online retailers!I did blend their previous kibble with the new Purina One SmartBlend for a few days to introduce it, and neither experienced any stomach upset. My expectations for a quality dog food are appealing taste (dogs readily eat it), healthy coats, lots of energy, and minimal stool. I feel like Purina One SmartBlend easily meets all of those standards, and therefore I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it! My dogs REALLY love this kibble! It looks and smells like high quality dog food!I typically feed my mini dachshunds a dry kibble for small breeds with "smaller bite-sized" kibble, and they had no problem with the Purina One SmartBlend dry kibble, in fact they LOVED the larger sized freeze dried bits, and I had to make sure they didn't steal the others' bits! I think it would be appropriate for nearly any sized dog.*I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Excellent Choice I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own. Maverick is a Siberian Husky, Border Collie, and German Shepherd Mix. He was absolutely blown away with this brand of food. The textures made it so easy for him to eat making it fun for him. He noticed the smell soon as I popped open the lid. I love the easy to pull lid feature because it saves me time and hassle to give my fur baby his food quickly. I really am impressed with this brand and can't wait to try other flavors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thankful for this product! I started my doggie mom stage almost 8 years ago with my great Dane Blue. I had taken him so many times to the vet with flaky skin, itchiness and inability to keep a decent weight. (Always too thin). The vet finally told me I would need to get him allergy shots at a specialist over an hour away from our home at almost 600 bucks a month. I was devastated. His last option was to switch his food. I tried so many different foods. Even the natural balls made with ground beef and oatmeal. A few years ago, I came across the turkey and venison and was always instructed to check the first two analysis of the protein and fat. I was impressed with the 30/17 the "One" had. So I used it. And Blue looks amazing, keeps a great full weight and even gets lots of compliments now. He has also welcomed an Alaskan Malamute brother who is just over half a year and let me tell you....Timber looks amazing! I would never switch their food again. I love that it keeps my babies in the best of conditions. One happy mommy here!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Dog Food! We recently tried Purina One SmartBlend and was extremely pleased with this product. I have been trying different brands to find one that was not only something my dogs enjoyed, but also one that provided good nutrition for them as well. This product delivered in both areas! Both of my dogs LOVED this and it was gone in seconds!! Will definitely be purchasing this in the future!I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PURINA never fails to satisfy My babies are picky about what they eat (sometimes I think they're human). Coco Chanel was left on our doorstep five years ago and she has always been extra cautious. When she tried Purina ONE® SmartBlend® True Instinct, I was shocked. She ate her bowl in seconds. Every bit!! She even came back to me FOR seconds!! Thank you for putting a smile on her face and in her tummy. I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I received a coupon to try this product for free and was not disappointed. I like the variety that I could get and the quality ingredients listed on your product. My dog enjoyed it so much that he licked the bowl clean and wanted more. In choosing a dog food I look for quality nutrition, how well my dog likes it and cost. I found all three qualities and your product. The fact that it was a free trial made it even better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My German Shepherd loves turkey and venison My 5 year old German Shepherd had a bad skin infection and itching problem. A breeder friend of ours suggested trying Purina One Turkey and Venison smart blend. In about a month her skin infection and itching decreased and in about 2 months her hair became softer and shiner, the infection and itching stopped. She also loves it when I moisten it with warm water. This is the first dry dog food that she really loves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect food for my Aussie Cattle Dog My dog Checkers rescued me about a year ago and in that time he and I have gone through a number of foods looking for one he actually enjoys eating. The shelter provided us with a mix they fed him which he seemed to be board with so we switched to Dog Chow because it was always fed my dogs in the past but he quickly became board with that so we switched to another brand and once again boredom set in.A couple of months ago he and I went to the pet store to see if we could find him something new. The brands I initially wanted to get him were far to expensive for my budget so we decided on a bag of Purina ONE True Instincts.In the time he and I have been together I have never seen him go at a food like he does the Purina ONE he used to just graze at his food but now when I put a scoop in his bowl he goes right at it. He still grazes but he always eats some when I fill his bowl which he did not do before.I have always trusted my dogs nutrition to Purina foods and my years of trust in providing a quality food to Checkers well continue on with Purina ONE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love Purina ONE and so do I I have been breeding, showing and field trialing English Springer spaniels since 1984. I have been feeding Purina ONE since 1990. On my last litter I was guilted into trying a so called "better" feed. I tried so many different brands and most they would not eat, or did not do well on from Exclusive , TOTW, Diamond, Innova, EVO and 4Health. 4health chicken and rice was the only one they would eat without any issues, until they changed the recipe and the dogs blew their coat.I started feeding ONE True Instinct on the recommendation of a Purina rep. So far so good! My boys love the taste and their coats are improving, stool size is small, eyes are clear and bright, breath is fresh and they have plenty of energy. What more could a dog owner/breeder ask for. I'll never switch from Purina products again. It's Purina ONE True Instinct for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great job Purina One! I received a free sample of three cans in exchange for my honest opinion of this product. Tonight my boys (Australian Shepherd and German Shepherd) had the Turkey and Venison. As soon as I opened the can I could tell this was a better quality food than I has been buying (which wasn't cheap either!) because there was no congealed ring around the top. Just ground meat. And it smelled like dog food, but not just dog food, I actually smelled meat. Novel idea, right? It mixed very easily with the dry kibble (I just so happen to use Purina) and my boys went to town on their supper! I don't think Gunner came up for air! They licked the bowls clean. I even got s thank you kiss. I'm sure it was a thank you. That's what I'm going with anyway.

    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 92 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.

    It's Not for All Dogs

    Purina ONE True Instinct formula is specifically formulated for adult dogs. If you have a puppy, or a pregnant or nursing dog, feed Purina ONE SmartBlend Healthy Puppy Formula.

    May be Served Dry or Moistened 

    Purina ONE may be fed dry or mixed with water. If mixed, we suggest one part liquid to four parts Purina ONE.

    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 your dog’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 adult dogs. 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.
