Feeding Guidelines

EASY TO FEED
If desired, serve moistened by adding warm water (three parts kibble to one part liquid).

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.

My dogs gobble this up!

My Bichons were a bit gassy the first day or two but that has resolved and they love this food.

A big hit

I have two dogs that often turn their nose up at dog food (instead preferring to wait and hope for table scraps) but as soon as I put the Light&Healthy Dog Chow in their bowls they chowed down!

Belian Loves It!

I try not to change up my dog's food too much but when I received the sample of Purina Dog Chow Light and Healthy, I fed it to her for her next meal. She gobbled it down and really seemed to love it!

the pack loves this!

I have 5 dogs - and they have never been happier: Rocky jumps up, Jack moon walks, Tippi and Maggie fight over any morsel dropped on the floor, and Lola (the picky eater), gobbles it down. When you have this many dogs, it's hard to please them all but this fits the bill. Thank you.

Dog Chow Light & Healthy

This is the first time any dog of mine has lost weight from a so called diet food. YOU have found the secret , not only did my Rottie lose 10 lbs. in 2 months, she has maintained her present weight and that makes me and my vet happy. She LOVES the food and looks forward to dinner time....THANK YOU VERY MUCH !!! Gretchen says Thank You too !

Only food I use!

I have 2 Basset Hounds and foster many others and use Light & Healthy for all of them. As any Basset owner knows, it's difficult to keep them trim. With Light & Healthy I've actually gotten my big guy down 8lbs and he doesn't even know it! Would recommend to everyone!
