SWITCHING TO PURINA DOG CHOW HEALTHY WEIGHT
When switching to Purina Dog Chow Healthy Weight from another food, please allow 7 - 10 days for the transition. Gradually add more Purina Dog Chow Healthy Weight and less of the previous food to your pet’s dish each day until the changeover is complete. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets.

Follow some of these simple guidelines, and you can have success too.

* ALWAYS measure your dog's food servings based on the chart shown.
* Split your dog's daily allotment into several small meals per day.
* If you feed treats, give your dog only one or two snacks/day that are low in fat.
* Exercise moderately. It can be fun! Check with your veterinarian for guidelines.
* Record your dog's weight each week to monitor your dog’s progress. Slow, steady weight loss is ideal. You can do it, and it's worth it for the health of your dog!

Provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily.

For your pet’s health, see your veterinarian regularly.

Light and Healthy making my Puppy Light!

I was invited to try Purina light and healthy as a part of the healthy hundred bloggers club. My black lab Pippi is about 5-10 pounds overweight. I began to slowly mix in her light and healthy food. She started finishing her dinner before all of the other dogs! After about a week she was eating strictly light and healthy. I started walking her 30 minutes a day every single day. At the end of the first week, Pippi's harness was falling off of her! She lost about 5 inches from her midsection!! She has also lost about 4 lbs after eating light and healthy for a month. Now don't forget you should also be ACTIVE with your dog. Between the food and exercise, it is possible to help your dog get back into shape. Another thing I loved about this food, is that I could pronounce all of the ingredients. I am glad Purina gave me the chance to share this with my dog. The other dogs are jealous of Pippi's food, and we are thinking of switching everyone over to light and healthy!

Great Product!

After receiving a free sample in the mail, I decided to give this dog food a try.  My dog usually waits a few minutes to eat when I give him his bowl, but he gobbled it right up.. He loves it :)

Great new product

Just wanted to thank you for this new addition to Purina products. Our Hailey is overweight and a picky eater. She loves Purina Dog Chow light & healthy. Now I can give her food that will actually help her lose those extra pounds. And the best thing is all our doggies enjoy it.

Abounding Energy!

The nutritional factor is #1 in my book when it comes to feeding my animals; Purina Light & Healthy Dog Chow contains all of the ingredients I trust when feeding them everyday. After a meal, my animals are refreshed, filled and display healthy and playful energy! I love how they are playful and so very happy! Thank you Purina!

My 3yr old Lab Mix is more energetic!

My lab mix Cracker loves his dog food! He comes trotting in excitement every time! He wasn't very picky but he disliked the expensive dog foods that we have tried. He picks up weight more especially with having back leg medical issues he cant really get high activity exercise like fetch or running. So we are constantly watching what he eats. Thank you for creating a product that is affordable and good for my dog! We just recently switched over to Purina and am so amazed by your products!

Great!!

My 15 year old dog loves this food and I have tried her on lots of foods and she really seems to love the taste of this!! I also have a hard time keeping our new puppy out of this as well. So I can say that young and old love this food.
