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.

Loved By All Our Dogs

We received a sample of this in the mail and I was very surprised that all three of our dogs started eating it!  Our dogs range in age from just over a year old to 15 years of age.  The older dog has teeth problems but he was able to crunch up the Light & Healthy bits while the two younger dogs began eating it after a quick sniff.  We plan on buying more to give them some variety in their menu.

My babies LOVE it!!

I have four furbabies, one of which was over 100 pounds and needed to shed a few pounds.  We've tried other "diet" dog foods, and she wouldn't eat them until she got extremely hungry.  All four of my girls are now on light & healthy and love it.  My overweight girl went from 105 to 88 pounds, and my other three are maintaining their healthy weight.

FLUFFIES!!

This is the dog food of choice for our beagles. They LOVE the FLUFFIES! We were sad to see the promotion for the $2 off coupon popup in our email only to find out none were available. Wish it came in a larger bag...

my dogs love it

I have 2 dachsunds and 1 basset hound, they all have a tendency to gain weight and it is not good for them to be overweight. Since we have started feeding them light and healthy, they are staying right on track with their weight. I dont have a problem getting them to eat it either.
