Rated 5 out of 5 by from Older dog, Got some new life......... My Lab is 11 and he is crippled and is unable to use his front paw and has arthritis. He was to the point were he could barley go outside to go potty. He could only take a few steps and the we would put him on his bed and drag him back inside. I noticed he was eating dirt. I looked it up and he needed more nutrients . So we bought him Purina One Salmon and Tuna nutrient dense formula. It has been 25 daysWith some doggy pain killer and the change of food he has made a complete turn around. After 2 weeks of eating the new food he got stronger, from all the protein in his diet. His muscles got stronger and he started walking again, he started to adventure again and is able to jump into the UTV. The food also has helped with the doggy stank. His eyes are bright and his fur is silky. He is completely off doggy pain killers and continues to get stronger every day. He walks,jumps and is able to enjoy is life again. I am the person that loves my dog but thought that dog food was pretty much the same. I was sssssoooo wrong. For the little bit of extra money I get to spend more time with my beloved doggy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4 Different Dogs-- All Agree We have 4 dogs varying in age from 4 to 14. A mut, a German Shorthair, a bulldog, and a coonhound. Two have sensitive stomachs. One needs joint care. The GSP needs tons of everything. My wife is a senior vet tech. This food accomplished all of our goals in one bag for all of our dogs. And we like that it's not priced like a Mercedes-Benz.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Duke loves his new Purina One Smartblend True Instinct Dog Food I have been trying out Purina One Smartblend True Instinct Dog Food on my German Shepherd for the past month. It took a little bit of work to shift him from his old food as his tummy tends to be a bit sensitive, but we combined his old food with the new food to begin with and then tapered off of the old food. The Purina One Dog Food looks better than the old brand and it seems to be preferable to him as well. He never really got excited about his food before. Sometimes we had to prompt him a number of times to get him to eat. Not with Purina One! He made a beeline from the house to his dish as soon as he realized it was there!His coat is shinier and he is more active. I'm not sure if that's a plus or not! ;) He's looking much more healthy now and I think we've found his new food. I will be using my extra coupon for $3.00 off on my next bag of dog food. Thanks to Purina and Smiley360 for the opportunity to get this product for free for the purpose of review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! My dog loves it! I get this dog food complimentary (free) for testing purposes. However this review is completely honest and my own. I have a female long hair Dachshund and she is very picky to eat. The first time I gave her this dog food she only sniffed it and leave. I thought she doesn't like it at all. But then she discover the pieces of soft meat inside the food and now she loves to chew and eat the Purina One Smart Blend. It is the only dog food that she eats without any wet food inside. The other brands of food I bought for her I always need to mix with a wet food, but this one is the exception.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best dog food!! I received this product for free for my honest review, your dog or dogs will love this, as soon as I poured it into their bowl they started eating it until it was all gone. I have been feeding them this for almost a month now and they have more energy, their fur is shiny, and their breath smells better. I would recommend this any day and I am still buying this so my babies are happy!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic dog food This stuff is amazing!! From the first bite my girl loved it and now after 30 days her fur is thicker and more shinny, healthy skin underneath, her eyes are even more blue then before and she has incredible energy (she also sleeps much better too). These opinions are my own and I received this item free to try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Third time is the charm! This food is wonderful! Dexter, my one-year old Black and Tan Jack Russell Terrier, loves it!!!!We started on a very expensive puppy food and he liked it; but when we switched to the adult formula, he refused to eat it. Upon a neighbors recommendation, we tried the Purina One Chicken and Rice Formula. He like the chicken part, but picked out the pieces he didn't like. Then we tried the Venison formula and it was better, but he was happy to let his little sister eat his food and he would eat hers! Then we hit the jackpot with the Salmon and Tuna. He chows down every meal! His coat is shiny and energy is high. And he looks at me with such adoration when I feed him.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product that my pet loves I would like to take this time to thank Smiley360 for supplying me with free product in return for my honest opinion. I would also like to give a BIG Thanks to Purina One for making such awesome products. I just recently had the pleasure of completing the Purina One 28-Day Challenge. I can honestly say I loved the results and my pet loved the taste. I'm now on my fourth large bag. The results were truly amazing...my Bella is more active, her skin and coat are soft and shiny, and she is maintaining a healthy weight. Bella is one happy and healthy doggie. Thank you again for this opportunity smiley360 for without your introduction to the 28-day challenge and free sample, I may never had tried this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality dog food with great taste I received a sample for free and I requested it for our very picky labrador. I was surprised with how much she loved the combination of chewy moist pieces and crunchy bits. We have two other elderly dogs (bichon and chihuahua) who tried and loved Purina One Instinct with Salmon and Tuna. They are so excited during feeding time. After a week of eating this food, we noticed more energy on the two elderly dogs. They are more playful - running and jumping. When in the past, they just sleep and hang out by the window.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog With Skin Allergies Hi, I have a 5 year old Pure Breed Golden Retriever named Junior. With various trips to the vet throughout the years, multiple skin reactions, multiple medications, I decided to give the Purina One True Instinct Salmon Food a try this winter being his allergy meds run around $100 a month and they aren't as bad during the winter months in Wisconsin. I must say that it has made a lot of difference in Juniors skin and coat. He has not had a break out on is belly this winter with only using this food. Granted I probably will have to give him his allergy meds during the summer because they are pretty severe allergies, but this food is just a bonus to help with his condition. I would highly recommend this food because of the Omega Fatty acids in there to help with skin allergies. Junior loves the food as well - although it does smell fishy a little, but he doesn't seem to mind one bit and another bonus with a sensitive stomach is that it has not upset his stomach one bit. I always fed him the Purina One Lamb and Rice formula, but am so glad I switched to the Salmon Tuna formula due to his allergies.Thank you for making such good food for my love- my golden retriever Junior.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ONLY food for Diesel now! Just for full disclosure, I did receive a free sample for reviewing purposes. That said, ALL opinions I write are my own & you can see that by my other reviews. Some are great, some not so much. So, onto my review.We adopted a large breed dog that was apx 1yr old & 50 pounds on the nose. When we got him, we tried a common dog food that was fairly inexpensive & I found very quickly that it led to grass eating & upset stomach, followed by vomiting. SO, I was already looking for a good replacement that was HIGH in protein (I found after lots of research that it was very much required for large breed dogs to get full enough not to eat random things as well as much better for their digestion with low or no grain) I was awaiting this product while using another high protein formula that Diesel seems to like well. However I already signed up to try this one.As soon as he got the first bowl, he gobbled it up faster than anything he had ever been given from us. He was THRILLED with it. Along with the sample we received a coupon for an 8lb bag of a variety of flavors, I chose this one because it had the highest protein levels of the options. Over the course of the bag I did see an increase in his coat appearance but no change in the brighter eye claims that were given at time of sign up. I do see a slight change it teeth whitening as well. I am super happy with the price when comparing to other foods with the 30% protein levels this has. The largest bag option is only $36 locally & $21 for the 15lb bag. Comparably speaking, that is half of what most others cost with the same levels of all the things we need from the food. 30% protein is only offered in a very small amount of food options & most are well over $60 for the larger bags & around $36 for a 15lb bag. Which is way out of our budget considering how much a large breed eats. The bag shows about 4-5 cups per day for his weight, he actually eats about 5.5 to 6 cups per day realistically.We also tried going back to the other food simply because I had almost 20lbs left & it did not sit well with him at all. SO we are mixing in about 1/2 cup with each meal now which seems to be ok for Diesel. This is now the ONLY food we buy for him & he seems very happy about it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My 95 lb Lab does not like and refuses to eat this food My 17 month old, 95 lb Lab, Duke, has been eating Purina One (true instincts with venison etc) with no problems. However last week while shopping for his food I noticed Purina One had a new product: Purina One True Instincts with Salmon and Tuna. I purchased a large bag because he likes seafood but to my dismay he was very unhappy with this product. First, the smell of the food is not favorable and he will go a complete day without eating if this food is in his dish. When I replace it with the Purina One with Venison etc he will eat every morsel. Thus I will not be purchasing this product again as I disposed half a bag by placing it in the trash. Sorry Purina!Carole and Duke

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sasha and Spencer we're in love at first taste! At first I wasn't sure if they would enjoy the taste as for life (6 years) they have been fed primarily beef, chicken and poultry flavors. They went nuts! I wasn't thrilled with the smell but soon got over it. I noticed increased "puppy-like" activity and firmer consistency in stool, not to mention smaller stools. Plus, plus, plus! A definite keeper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expense I would buy more of your products, but your prices keep me from doing so. When you have a Mastiff and Pit Bull to feed, I cannot fork out $30-40 every 2 weeks. Can you please tell me why your food is so expensive? Yes, there are others out here equally expensive, and no, I do not buy them either. My pit has wheat allergies so am always on the lookout for good food. Sincerely, Karen, Cheyenne & Madden

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product I have been giving this dog food to my dogs for about 2 and a half weeks now. As with the current brand of dog food that I use, my dogs were also very excited to eat this one. They naturally love eating. With my oldest dog, I noticed him whimpering less while eating. Perhaps because this food had moist chunks. I like that you could see the fresh chunks of salmon within the food. The dog food is a mix of moist and dry food and is not that smelly.As for what the food promises, I have yet to see an increase in energy within my dogs, because they were already pretty energetic. They do enjoy eating it. And I have not noticed a change in eye brightness. But I suppose it just takes a bit of time to see the benefits. I would consider this food over other brands, because of the food's more natural ingredients. It is just a little pricey when you have two large dogs to feed.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! Not only do they start running around like crazy as soon as the dog food bags get brought inside, but they down it even faster. They love the chunks of fish and meat and their coats have become more shiny. With having high drive dogs, this is just the dog food for them! I recommend it regularly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Dogs love it I received a free sample of the PurinaONE SmartBlend with salmon and tuna. I wasn't sure my dogs would go for that flavor, but I was quickly proven wrong. They could not wait for me to get out of the way and start chowing down. Not one morsel was left in the dish. I have been using the product for a few weeks and still they are excited when I put it in the dish and never a single crumb is left. And there have been some foods where they leave some behind. What is most important to me is the ingredients. The first one is salmon, not some filler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maddie and Bruno Our fur babies, Maddie and Bruno were in need of a high protein adult dog food. The Salmon and Tuna has been so beneficial for their health in the last 6 months. Their coats are shinier, teeth cleaner and their energy levels are through the roof! Bruno is a Staffordshire and it's important for him to have super strong bones and muscles. He's 72 pounds of love. Maddie is a Pit Bull and she's a bit leaner than most. She's super high energy and always on the go! I am so happy to know they both are getting lots of protein and nutrients to maintain a strong heart and body. Thanks you Purina!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 28 day challenge I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own. Right now My dog Tori is on day 18 of the challenge and from the very first day she went to her bowl and ate her food right away, with the food she was eating before she would sniff walk away and come back later to eat so I know she likes the taste a lot better than what we were previously feeding her. I will continue to buy this brand even after the 28 day challenge is over. Tori loves it =)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves Purina One!! My dog had been eating Kibbles n Bits, but seemed bored with it. He would go days at a time and not touch his food. I received the free trial from Smiley 360 for Purina One and my dog loves it!! He eats all of it, not just certain bites. I will continue to buy Purina One.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The boys are loving it! We switched our two lab/shepherd mixes to the Purina One Real Salmon & Tuna and they are loving it! One of the dogs has a sensitivity to a lot of foods we have tried and he is doing really well on this. Their coats are soft and shiny, and my older dog seems to have lots of energy! We will definitely be keeping them on this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good dog food I bought this to replace the purina alpo I was buying and I have notice a considerable amount of difference in her coat and energy, she also when I first mixed the dog food specifically picked out the salmon and tuna and left the alpo so the taste must be good. I would recommend this product to any pet owner

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sir William the Pittie loves it! I have a 3 year old pit. He absolutely loves this food. We switched about a month ago and he has noticeable coat improvement as well as firmer stools. We love it so much when I saw a couple in the store getting kibble I got them to go with the one. Five stars!
