Healthy Puppy Formula Premium Dog Food

Product Overview

In our Healthy Puppy Food, we start with real lamb as our #1 ingredient. Plus rice, oat meal and other key ingredients - all in amounts that provide high levels of essential nutrients. Why? Because puppies aren't dogs. They need more - including more protein to get growing. And this blend of dry puppy food gives them all that including DHA, a nutrient also found in mother's milk, for vision and brain development. It's choosing ingredients that work better together than they ever could on their own that inspired us to call this puppy food SMARTBLEND.

What makes SmartBlend® Smart?

It’s inspired by a deeper understanding of dogs. An understanding that comes from our passion to explore possibilities in nutrition, and our desire to turn them into positive differences in your puppy’s life. Inspired by a Deeper Understanding of Dogs™.

  • Real lamb as the first ingredient blended with other high-quality protein sources helps build strong muscles and a healthy heart
  • Omega-6 helps give your puppy a radiant coat and healthy skin
  • Easily digestible nutrition with wholesome rice for your puppy’s delicate stomach

Feeding Guidelines

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.

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.

THE IMPORTANCE OF IDEAL BODY CONDITION

Nestlé 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.

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 puppies and reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation. 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.

Excellent Puppy Starter Food!

I have started my puppies on this brand by Purina from 21 days of age. I simply add warmed evaporated milk, let the mix soak, and sit back and watch the puppies finger and body paint one another. The clamor for their food is so exciting for them. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Bernie LOVES it!!

When I got my puppy he was being fed a low quality food, his coat was dull looking and corse he also lacked that puppy “bounce”! Once he was switched to Purina One Smart Blend puppy food, all of that changed! He has a lovely shiny, soft coat and really has that puppy “BOUNCE”!! Also, my daughter’s puppy wasn’t eating the food he was on, when we went to visit he kept eating Bernie’s. Jermaine (daughters puppy) is now eating and loving Purina One Smart Blend puppy food.

Puppy LOVED Purina One SmartBlend Puppy Formula!

My puppy absolutely loved Purina ONE SmartBlend Puppy Formula Dog Food. He had tried other brands, but this is the first dry food that he ate happily. He had no stomach issues and I felt good about giving him Purina ONE. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

My puppy loves it!

This is the first puppy food we bought when we adopted our new puppy, and he loved it right away. The transition from his previous food was smooth and easy. The cost is good, and the package has excellent, easy to understand instructions, and tons of useful information. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)
