Feeding Guidelines

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 113 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.

Dogs LOVE the turkey flavor!

I received a free sample of this product in exchange for my honest review.

I used my free bag coupon for the healthy weight formula with turkey as the #1 ingredient. Both of my dogs (purebred Siberian and husky and a Siberian husky/German Shepherd mix) are not receiving as much exercise as they should since I went back to work. We get in walks when we can. In order to prevent them from gaining too much weight (the purebred is already a bit overweight) I decided to get this in order to help them out a bit.

They LOVED it. They both eat their food without any hesitation, which is unusual. I started with small amounts and slowly worked them up to nothing but this. No digestive issues, like smelly gas, something they would normally get with anything outside of their normal food and treats. They go crazy when I go to the bag. Their other food (plain old Purina dog chow in the green bag), they would eat it but did not like it anywhere near as much as they like this stuff.

On top of this, their bathroom habits are more regular (no more messy stools to clean up in the yard), they have less gas, and their coats are better looking than before, which is a great thing since it is shedding season!!! The price of this isn't so much more than my regular brand that it will be a hardship to switch so I am definitely switching them as soon as their current bag of the old stuff is done.

Proof is in the empty bowls and shiny coats

Our two Golden Retrievers were definitely in a feeding funk before this food came into our lives. Always lagging to come to eat and even leaving food behind. But not anymore, now they are waiting at the bowl and eating every morsel. The True Instinct food looks and smells appealing. Over the past month I have noticed less shed and a definite shine to their coats. I received a free sample initially for the purpose of my review. Have since purchased our 3rd bag of this and it's a keeper in our house. They love all the flavors. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
