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.

Great new product!

We have three large dogs that have been raised on Purina Puppy Chow and Purina Dog Chow. Last year our 11 year old lab began to gain a lot of weight even though she was exercising every day. We switched over to Purina Fit and Trim. She has since lost weight and is back to her happy self. In the bags of Fit and Trim were samples of a new product. Purina Light & Healthy. I shook the food from the first sample and fed it to them by hand. It disappeared right away. Then I mixed it with their other food. Same thing! The lab got a small bag to try on her own and it was quickly eaten. I would like to add that she had no gas or loose stools. If this food can keep her weight down and they enjoy eating it, it's a winner! I have used Purina products for over 40 years and am excited to see that my dogs love this new product so much! Thank you!

George & Sophie loving the Light and Healthy life!

My dogs, George and Sophie are very active, but also need a high quality food to keep them full and fill them up. When I cut open the bag of Purina Dog Light and Healthy food they were both so excited, Sophie even just dived right in and ate it straight from the bag! They absolutely loved the food, and I'm glad it's not overly fattening for them even with their active lifestyle I want them to stay fit and not gain weight. I run a lot with George and he runs a lot of miles, so his nutrition and health is very important to me! Thank you Purina for making this option of food.

My dog wolfed her new chow!

Thank you Purina for sending the gift bag of new chow to my wonderpooch, Kila. She sniffed out the yummy goodness before I could get the bag open, then wiggled her hind end in supreme happiness once I filled her bowl. I had to remind her of a couple of things as she wolfed down her new 'treat." "Chew and breathe, my doggie. Slow her down, girl." On the dog delicious scale, Kila rated this a "plow through the chow before the cats even look at it #10." Then she put Purina dog chow Light and Healthy on her birthday list.

Wow!

I received a small portion when I purchased the last bag of Fit and Trim.  I was unsure how my two dogs would respond to a new food after been on this for over a year.  Now i can not wait until it is on the shelf!  They both loved the new brand and keep looking for more!

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

Perfect!

This has been amazing for our 4 yr. Old Pitbull. Due to military orders we left him with grandma. Lets just say he was not as light and fit 2 years later. We started him on this amazing food and saw results in just a week. Great product!!

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!

My dog "chows down" on this product!

My 10.5 year old beagle mix pooch, Heidi, is a bit overweight. For years I fed her Purina Fit and Trim, but apparently it's no longer available in my area. So I purchased Light and Healthy. What a difference! She cannot wait to eat, and her tail wags the entire time! She even enjoys it as a treat, again wagging her tail constantly.
