Suitable for: All adult dogs that suffer with weight gain as a complete and balanced diet to keep up their health.
Main Ingredient: The main ingredient is chicken (14%), a great protein source - better than most dog foods that feature cereal as the main ingredient!
Main Meat Source: The exact origin of the chicken is not listed, but it supplies the diet with excellent rich protein.
Protein Amount: This diet is 27% protein; suitable for adult dogs that tend to gain weight.
Product Aim: To support the maintenance of adult dogs, while also controlling weight gain as it is low in fat and high in protein instead.
Allergy Benefits: None listed for product but the ingredients used are not known to commonly cause allergic reactions.
Is it a natural product? Yes; the diet does not list any named 'articifial' ingredients.
Does it include any additives? The additives used are added to benefit the dog's health; vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Wind, bad breath, fur & teeth benefits? A healthy coat and skin is aided by omega 3 fatty acids. Fibre and easily digestable rice (7%) in the diet help limit wind. Dry food helps ‘clean' the teeth and avoid bad breath.
Can I only feed this one product? Yes, it is a complete balanced food so no need to feed other food with it, just give fresh clean water in a bowl too.

You can just give the dry food straight to your dog in a bowl. Always follow the packet feeding guidelines so that you know how much to feed.
So, Is it a good food to buy?
A great food that can be fed to support your dog's health and weight. The packaging is honest about the ingredients. Feeding method is incredibly easy and the product is overall well priced.
Would it be agreeable with my dog?
Does your dog have bad breath or teeth?
The dry food is made into kibble (small round biscuit like peices) which the dog bites and chews to eat; when this happens the kibble actually helps to keep the teeth clean and remove tartar! So, if your dog has bad breath and teeth this could be helped massively by using a dry feed.
Does your dog have a dull or rough coat?
The diet contains omega 3 fatty acids for added skin and coat nourishment.

Ratings & Reviews
Great product !!!
My dog loved it from day one but i haven't notice any changes in her behaviour but what i've noticed is she doesn't have bad smell from the mouth anymore so i would really recomend it and will be keep feeding her and will post if i see any changes.
Wow my dog absolutely loves this food she doesn’t leave a biscuit, she gets so excited at dinner time now, she’s full of life and full of energy and that’s definitely down to the food, she wasn’t like this off the brand before. I will only buy this food from now on she loves it
My pug loves it
I’ve been really happy with this food and my pug loves it , it’s starting to keep her weight more healthy and maintained as she was starting to put on a little weight and her coat shines and she seems to be more perkier and alert lately after several weeks of eating the food , this may be why it’s helps to keep her weight down as she seems more energetic, I highly recommend especially for breeds and older dogs that are prone to putting on a bit of weight
Nice and reasonably priced
A healthy diet that my dog never fails to finish! You can see it's well developed and certainly better than average dog food. A great addition for my dog.
My dog absolutely loved this food and coming from a fussy dog that is good. So pleased with the results, dog has lost a bit of weight to which is great as he was a bit tubby.
Joy loves ProPlan
Jay and I are taking part in the #ProPlanUK#TheInsidersUk camapaign and we are enjoying taking part. Joy really loves her food and has more energy lately and has even started to look leaner thanks to her new diet of ProPlan all sizes light chicken sterlised.we are very happy to continue with her new diet of ProPlan
Put my pugsy on this pro plan because he puts on weight easy and this food weight control and has all the nutrients he needs for balanced diet so happy I did my pugsy took too it straight away couldn't eat it quick enough that's how much he enjoyed it.His coat seemed a lot healthier and his breath a lot fresher and he finally lost little weight definitely recommende pro plan will be buying from now on .
Great dog food
We switched to Purina dog food a month ago and I am very glad we did . My dog absolutely loves it and looks healthier already . Fur is feeling softer .
Have to watch my weight!
My golden labrador was so excited with Purina Pro Plan Opti weight. She comes running when we weigh out her food each morning. The small, brown, square dry biscuits are delisious. Lots of tail wagging. We devide her food into x3 small meals a day, the same food times as us humans. We love the low fat, high protein content. Keeps her full for longer.
Well what can I say about this fabulous food? My dog loves it! His coat is shiny and glossy and he's lost 2kg in 4 weeks! Would highly recommend to any one looking to change their dog food, I can't comment on the taste but he's seems to enjoy it!
I have a very fussy dog, but he loved this food, its really great to see him eat something straight away, would definitely recommend and will be buying more
Dog loved it
I normally have to mix dry food and wet food for my 2 year old lab. As soon as I put the food down he chomped away never had to give wet food with it. Well I have noticed as well he is calmer and has lost weight as well. The negative side is its not cheap. Other than that one thing I would recommend this to anyone.
Our one year old Miniature Dachshund is very fond of her food but can also be quite fussy. We’ve been advised by our vet that we need to watch her weight especially since being spade and so the Optiweight has proved to be beneficial. The fact that she seems to enjoy it is a bonus. As you can see her coat is shiny and healthy and she is full of life.
my dog loves purina optiweight
My dog, Molly likes this food.We received it to test and as she is normally a fussy eater and has turned her nose up at a variety of foods I was not sure she would eat it. But she not only eats it but appears to enjoy it. She comes to tell me when it is food time and sits wagging her tail while I get it ready. ,After she was sterilised she began to put on weight, but using this purina optiweight has helped with weight reduction and we are now using it for maintenance. She loves it.
Very happy with product
I have been using this product for about a month after changing from another brand. So far I am very happy with how my dog lola has responded to the change. Lola needed to Lose some weight and this product has massively help her get back to what she needs to be at. It seems better then most dog foods and is a very good size
HI Oscar is a very fussy eater and we brought in this product very slowly. He has taken to it well. WIth other products we found that after a meal he was very hyper and playful. Since introdroucing this food we have found it has calmed him somewhat, maybe as it has reduced protein!. Some weight loss has been found. Very happy with the product.
I used this food on both of my black Labradors. They absolutely loved it. I first mixed it in with their food they were used to and they eat through it without a problem.
After 1 week I changed it to just the dry food, they did drink a lot more water which I would expect. But I noticed there coats were lovely and shiny so that was one improvement from being on the food.
It was that good I gave a small sample to my brother and mum to try their dogs on it.
I would highly recommend thIs food.
My dog enjoys the food. It leaves him feeling full so he does not beg for the food we are eating. He has lost weight and looks slimmer. Great product, I highly recommend it.
My boy is so fussy when it comes to meal times, his food usually sits there for a while after feeding him, but with the optiweight he ate it straight away and didn't leave any. I am so pleased to have found a food he actually loves, and it's doing great for his coat too looking lovelier, overall very pleased.
Pro plan dog food
My dog was overweight and is a very fussy eater of dried food ..However she loved theses biscuits her coat as got glossier and she's also loosing weight to a healthy size ..I'll be using these from now on fantastic brand
What can I say.... This pet food has done wonders for Tyson, in just 3 weeks we have noticed a change in not only his weight (he had lost 2kg) but also his coat, his fur has become much softer and shiny. Obviously I can't comment on how it tastes but Tyson will clear the bowl in one go now where as with the old brand we used he would just pick at though the day. It gets 5 stars from. Us!
I am delighted to say that my dog, Molly who is a very fussy eater, has taken to the Optiweight chicken dry food and enjoys it. I add a couple of spoons of wet food to it, taking this into account with the amount I feed her. She has two meals a day, breakfast and tea - and is always very excited when I tell her it is time for her meal. She is beginning to lose a little weight, though she does not have a lot to lose and when she is at an ideal weight, I will continue with this food increasing it to a maintenance level. A great food. Thanks. It has often been very difficult to find something that suits her and this seems to be ideal.
My Dog Loves it
Since changing to the pro plan my dog has loved going over to this food she seems so more content and I’ve even noticed a change in her coat it is a lot more shinny I would definitely recommend the pro plan dog food to anyone who has a dog
Amazing for fussy eaters
My dog mostly prefers dry but he ate this straight out of hand as soon as I opened the bag, my friend visited with her dog who is raw feed and always turns his nose up to any treats etc and he was straight in, tossing them up in the air and catching them even bringing pieces into the living room to show his mam. He seems to be having firmer movements and looks a little.more slender like he should ... Would definitely recommend
Harley’s Food Switch
3 weeks in and we are starting to see a definite difference in weight loss. She only has 2 kilos to lose so nothing drastic. Harley’s enjoying the food, we are mixing with a decent quality meat so it’s not too dry. But so far so good. Tried a few weight management foods in the past and so far this seems to be working the best. Will update as we go
