PRO PLAN DOG Purina Pro Plan Medium Puppy : Purina Pro Plan Sensitive skin feed for puppies.

Purina is a quality product, it is vet recommended, and a premium brand, our dogs have been on purina now for around 6 months and they love it, firstly they completely clear their bowls every night and never turn away, in terms of cost then you get loads out of these bags and they compare with cheaper supermarket brands per serving. Overall very strongly recommended.

One dog loves it, one won’t go near the stuff. One dog loves this salmon rich kibble and one absolutely refuses to eat it. The nutritional info is spot in and provides a rounded diet for your dogs. It comes in a handy easy to open, pour and store bag that is a good size to lift and pour if like me, you have arthritis or other similar issues which may make the larger sacks difficult to manage.

First thing to say is that our 8 month old aussie shepherd gobbled this food up without any complaint. His stools were fine and he showed no signs of stomach upset what so ever. The main selling point for this kibble though is its sensitive skin relieving properties. In this respect we noticed no difference in his scratching habits. Now our pup doesn’t scratch over excessively and its hard to tell whether his scratching is due to a skin issue, or shedding, or indeed just a habit (like some people i know). Any dog that overly scratches could be doing so for any number of reasons, so to find a solution for all in one dog food is unlikely. All you can do is try it and see. However the nutritional values in the purina pro are ok but not particularly special.

Comments from buyers

“Our Jack Russell liked it but I am not convinced about the skin claims., Contains some salmon for sensitive skin, but mainly chicken . Dog enjoyed it, but it does contain wheat., Good mix of nutrients and balance of ingredients- definitely recommend”

This is a good quality dry food from purina. The kibbles are suitably sized for dogs to chew easily and the ingredients listed should ensure good health in the future. It is suitable as the main course or can also be used as a mixer. To maintain freshness the food is supplied in a resealable bag.

As it takes time- however texture and small really enjoyed by the beast himself and was wolfed down- i. I can’t comment about whether the itching / scratching issue is resolved or helped as it takes time- however texture and small really enjoyed by the beast himself and was wolfed down- i am a huge fan of changing food on a rotating basis and he loves this- great product and he liked the chicken variety i tried too- very good and great value.

Unfortunately this product arrived a little too late. Out bulldog has a skin problem and the vet just cannot tell what it is. It is in the tail area around the base. Whether this food would have prevented or helped him i do not know but hopefully it will do no harm under the circumstances. The bulldozer is a very fussy dog and it has been very difficult to pin down something he likes. On its own, he is not impressed by this brand, however, mixed through his wet food, then he will tackle it – not straight away – but i suspect when the pangs of hunger get too bad. Anyway, he is working his way through it and we look forward to getting the ‘all clear’ on his skin complaint. Hopefully he will grow out of it, but sadly it is becoming all too common.

    Got these for my dog, she likes the odd dry food but struggles with the some products, they can be a bit hard for her, these i’ve found she really likes. Ignoring all the claims, as most manufacturers make the same blah dee blah claims, only a vet or scientist would be able to test these theories and it would take more than my dog to prove them. Its weather or not you dog like them or not, that’s what counts. Mine is very happy with them, slightly bigger bits than she normally has but still a good size, they do seem a little softer than some i’ve found which for my dogs a big plus. The bag is a very good size, forgot how big a 3kg bag was. There obviously a quality product, one that i’m happy to recommend.

      I have tried purina pro plan complete dogfoods before, and have always been very impressed by the quality and efficacy of the products in the range. Purina is a reputable brand producing high quality products that i know and trust, and this food for puppies with sensitive skin completely met my expectations. The product comes in a 3kg bag, and is salmon flavoured, which my puppy really likes – so much so that there is none left.She does have a tendency to some dry skin areas, nothing major, just little patches on her tummy. I have found since feeding her this product that her skin has definitely shown signs of improvement, her coat is beautifully shiny and glossy and so i am happy to recommend this product.

    Presumably only slightly different from their normal puppy food, which goes down very well. He certainly doesn’t seem to be scratching much. Easily re-sealable bag certainly helps.

    Worked on my dog’s skin condition. . I rate the purina pro pan range very highly. They are premium dog feeds formulated to specifically meet the needs of dogs depending upon their age, build, breed and activity level. This particular formulation is targeted at puppies with sensitive skins and my experience is that it works well. One of my newfoundland pups has been prone to dry flaky skin and small bald patches since he was about 5 months old. I had tried various (allegedly) hypoallergenic feeds, added salmon oil to his meals and used a number of medicated shampoos to counteract the problem with little success. He has also been prescribed preparations by the vet to combat a possible flea / mite allergy which didn’t make a difference. I have had him on this purina food for about 6 weeks now and there are irrefutable signs of improvement. The flaky scales have gone and he is no longer constantly scratching. I recommend this dog food without reservation if your dog has skin issues.

    Our puppy gobbled this food down but to be honest he eats most food put in front of him. It comes in a handy re-sealable bag and is formulated with salmon for sensitive skin. It also contains other ingredients such as chicory root, fish oil and soy bean oil and contains vitamins a, c, e and d and other minerals. It is formulated without wheat gluten which is good to know but i would prefer to see a higher salmon content (it contains only 17%) for this price. It is hard to tell if the ‘sensitive skin’ aspect works but it is good to know that this food has been formulated with this problem in mind. I would recommend this food but it is a bit pricey for what it is in my opinion.

    I don’t know if it was coincidence but my dog had diarrhea for a few days after starting this. It seems to have stopped now and he’s still eating it so fingers crossed. It could have been something else. These are very very small kibbles, almost like rabbit food size. I’m surprised it’s medium sizedhis skin is looking great though and purina is said to be full of nutrients.

      Contains some salmon for sensitive skin, but mainly chicken. Dog enjoyed it, but it does contain wheat. . Salmon oil is a recognised treatment for itching, sensitive skins in dogs; this food does contain some salmon protein. However it should be noted, this could be from any part of the salmon, so is not necessarily a prime cut of oily salmon flesh. The greater part of the protein in this comes not from salmon but from chicken. It does contain rice which is suitable for dogs with allergies but it is also full of wheat, which is a known allergen for many dogs. This is for medium sized puppies such as border collies and the spaniel breeds. The kibble size is a little smaller than the mainstream adult kibble but not too small – it’s quite difficult to tell the difference. I’m not a fan of kibble for very small puppies, the nutritional level is too low but this should suit little ones of three months and up although i would be tempted to supplement with wet foods. That aside, we gave this to our young springer who is used to a dry food diet and he loved it.
