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.

Purina one smartblend.

I've been buying this brand for awhile but this is the first bag we've got with the salmon! Our two dogs, a three year old Scottie and a two year old Yorkie are crazy about the salmon flavour. They pick out all the light colored pieces first then the darker ones! They've got great energy and are very playful! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Great Product

I have tried so many different brands of dog food and could not find one that my dog would eat. One day while in the grocery I saw Purina One Smartblend and decided that I would give it a try. Once I got home I opened the bag and filled his bowl, he was hesitant at first but started to eat it. We are on our second bag and he actually gets very excited when he hears the bag opening and can't wait for me to fill his bowl. He loves the soft pieces of real meat and usually will eat them first and then finish the rest. Great product, will continue to buy!!! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Excellence

We recently tried this new product from our local store. My fur baby really went nuts for this food as soon as I opened the bag. He could hardly control himself he was so excited. A wonderful product and our new favorite. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Perfect for a picky eater!

I have a border collie who, as he has aged has become much less eager to eat. We have tried several different kinds of high-end dog foods but it wasn't until we tried the Purina One Smartblend Salmon and Tuna that he really perked up. We used this while we were away on vacation and when we returned mixed it half and half with an existing lamb and rice food we already had. He ate it for about two days then was back to his finicky ways. When I eliminated the lamb and rice he once again is jumping off the bed in the morning looking for his breakfast. Wish I could find it in more stores in larger sizes. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

My dog is now better than before

My dog was a fussy eater until she tried the new salmon Purina blend. She went to her bowl instantly knowing all the nutrient that it has to offer. My dog Cookie never leaves food behind. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)
