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 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.

Yummy food for picky eaters

My Pomeranian is extremely picky. As soon as I put this food in her dish she runs to the bowl! She loves the soft chewy tuna !! Great food for a great price! I've tried premium pet foods and this product is the best out of all of them [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

She devoted it

My golden was being finicky with her food. She’s 12 so I thought her appetite was getting smaller due to age. Then I bought this Salmin & Tuna blend. Well she certainly got her appetite back and then some. Wow, that’s all I can say. She loves this flavour. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

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! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Happy Lucy

It was delicious from day one. The first bowl I gave Lucy -she loved the smell of - she has turned her nose up at other foods. But every meal she was there waiting for this delicious dog food. I liked that I was feeding her not only something she loved but was also something that was so healthy for her - using real ingredients designed for the special dogs diet. Healthy, nutritious and delicious! Well done! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)
