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.

How does it keep my dog fit and healthy?
Weight Control - Contains roughly 45% less fat than other Pro Plan diets to help reduce body weight.

And, how do I feed it to my dog?
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
Bella absolutely loves this food, she was excited when she seen the bag, she needed a product that not only helped with her weight but also tasted good, proplans optiweight is the product that does both, bella wasnt losing weight with her other food even after hours of exercise a day, now I've changed her diet to optiweight she is losing weight to her ideal weight great product highly recommended.
New Food, new dog
My dog has been using Optiweigh for a number of week now I have seen some great results. The 1st strange thing I noticed was the amount suggested by using the included measuring jug was that by using the suggestion I would actually be giving my dog more! But my giving my dog the suggested amount saw him more satisfied and less likely to be looking for other snacks which is obviously advantageous. <br><br>He definitely seems more satisfied with his meals and over the last few weeks I am seeing him have more energy, his nose is shinier and his coat is shinier. <br><br>Hamish has lost a few pounds pounds and is heading in the right direction towards his target weight. Will continue to use and he is loving it and showing all the benefits
My dog loves his Purina Pro Plan. He eats all of his daily portion and has lost weight. Our dog has more energy and his coat and teeth look healthier. His name "Chubby" no longer suits him.
After a good start, where Toshi seemed to enjoy eating this, he then stopped, despite it being the only food I put down for him. It seems he will only eat wet food, which is disappointing as this seemed to be ideal for his weight, teeth and cost to me.
Wonderfull food for my overnight dog
I WAN QUITE EXCITED TO TRY SOMETHING THAT PARTICULARLY TARGETS MY DOGS, LETS SAY POST CHRISTMAS EXTRA POUNDS.<br>SHE IS A AMERICAN/MASTIFF BULLDOG, SO QUITE STOCKY AS IT IS.<br>THE FIRST PORTION I WAS SCEPTICAL SHE'D LIKE IT , BUT FOUND THE MUNCHED ON THAT BOWL WITH GREAT ENTHUSIASM.<br>SHE CAN BE VERY SELECTIVE WITH DRY FOOD AND WAS GREATLY PLEASED TO SEE HER EATING IT WITH EXCITEMENT. INITIALLY I DIDNT NOTICE RESULTS, I EXPECTED IT MIGHT TAKE A WHILE. <br>THE FOOD SEEMS TO KEEP HER GOING AND KEEPS HER APETITE AT BAY. THE LACK OF SUGAR IN IT AS PER OTHER DOG FOOD KEEPS HER CALM AND A SMALL NOTICE IN HER OVERALL WEIGHT CAN BE SEEN. <br>I AM EXPECTING VOER THE NEXT COUPLE OF MONTHS TO REALLY SEE THE DIFFERENCE .<br><br>THE MEASURING CUP IS AN ABSOLUTE GENIOUS IDEA :)
my dog really love this food he just can`t stop eating , look like that is very delicious ,once he finishes to eat he want me to give him some more. this dog food is very good . thank you
Our miniature dachshund Shelby has continued to enjoy the Optiweight food and as previously reported it couldn’t have come at a better time as our vet had said she was slightly overweight and to cut back on her regular food and treats. She’s a hungry little hound always looking for food so this has been ideal for her! It had been very much trial and error with her food up to now; some she did not like at all. This she seems to enjoy and needs no persuasion. Hopefully she will become a little leaner into the bargain!
MY DOG WAS EXCITED WHEN I OPENED THE BAG HE NEW IT WAS SOMETHING HE HADN'T HAD BEFORE I GAVE HIM A FEW IN MY HAND AS A LITTLE TASTER WENT DOWN REALLY WELL THEN I MEASURED OUT THE REQUIRED AMOUNT WITH HE MEASURING CUP THAT WAS PROVIDED OF THE Adult Light/Sterilised With OPTIWEIGHT - Chicken FLAVOUR LITTLE BISCUITS AND THERE WAS NO STOPPING HIM HE ATE EVERY MORSEL I HAVE BEEN FEEDING HIM IT FOR ABOUT A WEEK NOW AND I AM SURE IT IS HELPING WITH HIS HEALTH AS HE REALLY LOVES TO GO EVEN FARTHER ON HIS DAILY WALKS
Pugsy was excited when he saw how much food come for him too try he tends too put on weight easily so was happy too see if this weight control pro plan help him loose weight he couldn’t wait too eat his first bowl it soon went over the weeks I’ve noticed he lost little weight and his coat seems shiny before it was dull and his breath is fresh no bad breath like before he loves the chicken pro plan he caint eat it quicker enough I’m very happy we got too test this great product and I will definitely be buying in future. I’ve spoke too other dog owners how good this food is and they seem interested in it very happy dog and mommy thanks .
Great all round diet food
What a difference a few weeks can make! So my little buddy is an overweight grumpy little bugga who loves the finer things in life, steak, chicken ex. dog food for My chubby furry baby was always a last resort. When we received the optiweight we had a little struggle getting buddy to eat it, i has to mix it with other food but within a week he was eating and enjoying it on its own. He hasn’t been as hungry and wanting what we’re eating as much and he’s deffo noticeabley starting to loose some weight. His moods are a lot better deffo not as grumpy. And much more active. We’re loving it! We’re deffo going to stick with this.
A hit with Poppy
I was a bit anxious about trying my dog with a different dog food but I needn't have worried. I phased the food in with no problem. Poppy is a 4 year old Cockapoo who enjoys eating! She has really enjoyed the new food and is now happily eating just the Purina food. She is happy and full of energy. We are both very pleased with it!
Phil loves his new food
Phil the Jack Russel is quite a fussy eater and is more of a grazer than a full meal kind of dog before trying this food. However once we switched to this food he happily eats his meals all in one go and doesn’t beg for food in between and thoroughly enjoys eating it! He is usually easily distracted while eating hence the grazing but nothing will disturb him eating now!
Honey absolutely loves this. She's a fussy little so and so for a dog who came from the streets of Romania but this has gone down a storm. She's a healthy little dog anyway but this product seems to have improved on that too. I gave one of the sacks to a lady with a small rescue and she has also given me very positive reports.
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
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
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
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.
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!
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
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.
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.
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.<br><br>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.<br><br>It was that good I gave a small sample to my brother and mum to try their dogs on it. <br><br>I would highly recommend thIs food.
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.
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
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.
