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.

Lean dogs are healthy dogs!

I have been feeding this product to my two Golden Retrievers for quite a while. As anyone who owns a Golden knows, weight creep is a problem. They love their nap time! But we have loved feeding this to our dogs and they gobble it right up.

Great Texture, My Menace Dog Wanted MORE!

I received a (good-sized) free sample of this new product, and fed it to my 4-year-old Black Lab/Weim mix that night. He doesn't love dry food as a general rule, although he'll eat it, but he gobbled this sample in no time flat! As for me--while I didn't taste it--the food had great texture and a good scent. (I also like the health benefits...my menace dog is a little overweight.)

Our dog loves this

Our recent physical at the vet showed a little pudge setting in. I bought a bag of Light and Healthy after seeing it on a commercial. Our Boston usually eats Purina Little Bites. He loves this food and has lost a few ounces already. 
Also, Thank You Purina - in the last two months the "other brands" have had dangerous recalls of products, knowing the history of Purina I feel so much better feeding our "fur child" our products.

My chunky black Lab loved it

Received a sample of this dog food and was surprised to see how much our black Lab loved it. She scarfed it down all at once, even though her regular food is standard dog kibble. Would love to get it for her if we can keep our underweight GSP from eating her food instead of his!

Healthy

Foxy has been on Purina since she was 5 weeks old. Every time I take her to the vet they say how healthy she is , and how shiny her coat is. She will always have her Purina.

Our dogs love it

We had our dogs on Iams and Science Diet because one of them wouldn't eat. Our Vet told us to try Purina Light & Healthy. The one that wouldn't eat actually jumps up for her food. She's been on it for over a year and has not once not wanted to eat. The other one of our dogs use to eat their (dodo) and now she doesn't. Don't know why the change but I will keep buying it. I just hope they don't get rid of it.
