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 and 6 fatty acids for added skin and coat nourishment.

Purina PROPLAN looks appetising and does not have an overpowering smell, the kibbles are a nice size which suits our dog as she doesn’t seem to be keen on larger pieces. My dog, Maggie has been eating this food for over two weeks now and has never looked or seemed better than she is at the moment. Maggie eats the food without fuss and never leaves any, licking her bowl clean at every meal. She has been healthy and very bouncy as normal and her coat is shiny so I am assured she is getting the right nutrition and that the food suits her. Would happily buy this food for our dog and be assured that she is getting a natural wholesome diet.

I have been giving my dog this food for nearly 2 weeks now and the change in her behavior are amazing! She's full of energy and more attentive and alert. I believe this is due to the high quality ingredients and non of the usual bulking out ingredients that other dog foods have. I would really recommend this food for anyone who is concerned about making sure your dog has the right nutrients and best quality food possible!

My staffy is white and suffers with bad skin and allergies. We have been buying a very expensive food brand and it's been costing us a fortune. I decided to try this food. She has been having it for 2 weeks, her skin has cleared up, her coat looks amazing and most importantly she really likes it! Will will definitely be sticking to this food from now on
great stuff !!
by alijay -

by Ella -
Ella loves this food. She is a fussy dog so I need to mix it up with some pates same as her regular food. But she finishes the bowl. I would recommend this.
by Clarinho -
This is a great food which my dog who can sometimes be fussy loves! He’s doing really well on this food and looking great too. The only thing I’d say would be that id like a higher meat content!
Really Good Dog Food
by shazz1957 -
Being a fussy eater and very spoiled our dog, Maggie , often turns her nose up at new food but she seems to really enjoy this one. The kibbles are small which she seems to prefer and it is not too strong smelling, she cleans her dish at every meal. The food seems to be doing her good as she is still very happy and active as ever and her coat is glossy. Her digestion seems ok and the food has not caused any adverse reactions so all in all the Purina food is a success.
Dog enjoys the flavour
by sandraw -
My dog has been has really been enjoying the taste of the food. The dog also seems to be happy to eat this as a complete dry food, and is not looking for any wet food to mix into
<br>In terms of health benefits I cannot see any improvement in his teeth, but then I am not sure how you would access this. Also I have not seen a massive improvement in the shinness of the coat. However I think it gives him more energy than his previous brand of dry food
<br>In terms of Ingredients, flavours and availability. The ingredients do seem to be more natural than other brands. There does not seem to be as many fillers, so would appear to be a better quality and standard of food.
<br>I was also impressed that the bag is re-sealable and easier to open than other brands. This helps to keep the dog food at premiere quality .
<br>In conclusion based on the positive response from my dog regarding the taste I would recommend to others.
Happy dog happy human

Amazing! One fussy eater satisfied time and again with this kibble. The small bitesize biscuits are more than suitable for her. Easily chewed and must smell and taste great as she finishes the bowl everytime.
by polkaspotdots -
I have feeding my dog Purina for about 2 weeks now, and the change in them has been fantastic! They have so much more energy and life in them, This is because there is no junk fillers that you find in other brands of food just lots of healthy ingredients. They have no problem wolfing this down and no upset stomachs that usually accompany a change in food. Great food and great for your dog!
Great food but packaging could be better
by Seve312 -
My dog loved this food. Usually she leaves her bowl for a midnight snack but with this it was gone within minutes. My only quibble is with the ziplock. It was quite hard to scoop out the food from the bag with the size of the opening. Also it didn't seal all the way across and there was a gap between the ziplock and the bag making it pretty pointless as it didn't seal it up at all.
My dog loved it
by martyn -
My dog really likes this - she's a bit of a fussy eater but she wolfed this down! It seems to be made from good quality ingredients and I'd certainly consider buying it again. I got this product in exchange for an honest review.
Good texture and taste
The pack comes with a re-sable bag so it protects the food, and the foods quality is maintained throughout use. There is also a handy sizing cup to ensure that your dog is receiving the correct amount of food for their bred and weight. Which is great for ensuring you do not overfeed your dog.<br>My Dog has really enjoyed eating this dog food. It is a completely dry texture and the kibble is the same size and texture. However, it is moist and is very easily swallowed by my dog. My dog is actively running to the food bowl to eat this food, so is obviously enjoying the taste of the food.<br>This food has been designed to give the dog the correct amount of nutrients required for large dogs. As a result I have also noticed that my dog has a lot more energy eating this brand of food in comparison to the previous brand of food used. <br>I would be recommending this product to friends and family,
Great for a fussy eater
We have noticed a dramatic improvement after only a few weeks in the quality of Bella's coat and, more importantly he appetite appears to be full, she is often guilty of sniffing around for food outside of meal times and that issues seems to be much resolved. She clearly finds the food tasty. All in all a happy home! We intend to continue with the food after the test period is over.
My dogs nutrition is very important to us, I trialled the new proplan food on my dog Ellie, she can be quite picky with food but took to it instantly and really enjoyed it, the balance of meat and vegetables was good for her, I know she's getting exactly what she needs in her food will definitely buy this again
Fantastic dog food. My year old cocker loves it. He has finished his bowl every time. Usually he picks at his food so this is great. We are going to keep going with this food as he lives it so much. It has also firmed up his toilets and not making him go so much throughout the day. I would highly recommend this food. And so would my Alfie boy.
My wee dog love her meals an I recommend . I had very happy consistent results even her skin coat looks better. My dog seems to like and look very healthy.
Excellent for a fussy dog
Our boy was always a bit of a mooch, no matter what food we have for him, we have tried lots from cheap to expensive to very expensive. He would always give us a nudge at the table looking to get some of our dinner, only eating his own when he realised there was nothing for him.<br>Now however he will eat his dinner first the come looking for more, so at least we get some time to enjoy our dinner whilst he is enjoying his..<br>Would recommend
My dog isn't usually overly fond of dry food and often leaves it and focuses more on the meat or wet food however as soon as I opened the bag she was straight in for a smell and after the first bowl full she couldn't get enough, definitely one converted customer band furry fan, I would recommend to anyone to try
Absolutely tail waggingly lovely
My lovely pooch would wait next to her bowl every time I went to her cupboard to get her breakfast with her tail wagging! We only give her dry food for breakfast and she loved it as much as her wet food.

We've been using this food for a few days now and what I can recommend up to now is that our dog has a big issue with food, is always scavenging but we've noticed a significant improvement in the last few days, which I attribute to her feeling more satisfied.
My doggie loves it !
My dog Rocky (Shih-Tzu) he absolutely love this dry food. He’s really happy when feeding time is coming. After eating he has a lot of energy. Even his cat sister is trying to get some of his food :) Totally love it! I can recommended !
A firm favorite
I have been trying my dog on this for two weeks and he absoutley loves it. He was very happy to try it and really loves it. Very happy with this product. Hihgly recommend
Loves the taste
Been trialing this with Sadie she loved the food and did seem to be getting a nice shine to her coat. An unpleasant effect of the great taste Is that she has become obsessive and overly protective over the meals getting bossy and aggressive with the other animals in the house which is a side we have never seen in her and has to be nipped in the bud quickly having to wean back to old food.
