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 Bassets love it!

I've been feeding my pups Purina since we added our second one to our family. So I have a 1 1/2 year old and a 7 year old now. I switched them to the New Light and Healthy so that both can maintain a healthy weight. They both absolutely approve.

Saving grace for my diabetic dog

Have 7 dogs-being fed good expensiive dog food, blue and such- they all raised Nikos sugars-vet put him on Science diet W/D-sugars were up and down, highs in the 400's-he did not like it either-at petsmart looking for a good food for him.worker told me that the way Purina makes and put into this-seems to be working for diabetic dogs. In 2 feeding his sugars are within normal range88- 168-only put cooked frozen green beans in unsalted beef or chicken broth.Niko is loving this food, just licks his bowl.He feels better and boy so do I. have used other purina dog foods.love the purina one for them. cannot thank u enough for this awesome wonderfful new food. going to put them all on it, when my other bags of dog food are gone.

Dogs love it

I purchased this new dog food a few weeks ago. My dogs are so picky and they eat everything out the bag not just a few certain pieces like they do all other kinds i purchase. Thanks for making a good food my dogs love and it helps them stay healthy

Love it!

I only bought this food a few days ago but my 4.5 year old Golden Retriever that is a few pounds overweight loves it! I have always used Purina products but the last year or so between Dog Chow and Fit and Trim she just doesn't get excited about meal time she munches and finishes eventually but when I switched her over to Light and Healthy she gets all excited tail wagging and stands there and eats all of her food at one time! I was very impressed by the looks of the food as well it looks like human food and even smells good to me and great to Bella!

Love the Steam Baking

I bought this a month ago for two of my dogs that insist they are not full after I feed them. Both of them love Light & Healthy. It also appears that they are losing weight, you can now see the larger dog's waistline again. Thanks!

Light and healthy and Good!!!

My spoiled rotten babies have turned up their noses at multiple foods. I saw this food and as both of them could lose some weight, decided to try it. They LOVED it! Empty bowls each time!
