A well-balanced product from one of the brand leaders. . As always with any new dietary regime, it is impossible to know from the outset if this works as it claims to. However, once my dog has eaten his way through this large bag of food, i will update the review. I do not have a dog as big as the saint bernard shown on the pack, but i do have a dog with skin problems, a shar-pei. His life has been plagued with skin irritations, allergies and infections, as well as loss of fur. This mix of salmon and rice as well as other ingredients does appeal to me as an owner. Previous trials with the rather expensive salmon oil additives produced good results, with a sleeker coat, and a reduction in scratching. This dry food is presented in nice large kibbles, easy too eat, and not too hard either. The dog took to it immediately, mixed as usual with some meat. He finished the whole bowl, and didn’t leave a scrap.
Another top quality food from purina. I do not have a large dog, i have 2 jack russells who literally inhale their food, so i thought that this food being aimed at large dogs would be good as the size of the kibble will be larger and thus harder to eat – it is and it does slow them down so they have to chew now. One of my dogs suffers from skin sensitivity, so i always use purina pro plan as it seems to be a much better quality food that does not irritate the skin. With the added advantage of fish oils, this is good for skin and coat so i think all in all this could be the perfect food for my little dog.
Good quality dog food from an established and trusted brand. The proof of dog food is in the eating, and this purina pro plan kibbles has been eagerly consumed by my two dogs. Although the food is aimed at large dog breeds, i have a medium large border collie, and a jack russell / lakeland terrier cross, a small medium, and the food – whether on its own or mixed with meat / fish – has gone down well. The smaller dog does appear to suffer from bouts of excema, and the gluten-free make up of these biscuits seems to be making a noticeable difference. The fish oils also help keep the border’s coat in particular looking glossy and healthy. The 16% salmon content is reasonable, and the chicory helps keep the flatulence at bay (for the dogs, not me). Good digestion has been maintained, too. Good quality dog food from an established and trusted brand, to put it simply.
Purina are one of the more well known names when it comes to pet food. This is a huge bag that will last my dogs ages. All 3 dogs just wolfed it down. They really enjoyed the flavour. Only problem is their fish breath afterwards lol.
You can always tell a good dog food by whether your pooch leaves any and our old boy woofed this down and continues to clear his bowl within 90 seconds, it smells great and purina are vet recommended. Just a note that the bag is also high quality and we leave the kibble in it as it stays fresh.
Reviews from purchasers :
Great variety of a tip-top brand. Well i do not know if i love it, but the dog certainly seems to enjoy it. It is a nice big dag with the food in large kibbles. Just the thing for an american bulldog. We alternate it with another flavour of the same variety. The spoiled pooch was a little suspicious at the start, but he finally relented and now enjoys his purina salmon. He is not a particularly robust dog, but he does walk miles every day so i suppose it amount to the same thing, and his skin seems to be in good condition in spite of his age. So i will continue to use purina. Not all dried foods are good, but this one certainly is.
I got this for a dog who has had a tendency to scratch. Trips to the vet showed that he was prone to occasional excema. Before feeding my dog i asked the vet’s advice on this product, and he seemed sceptical as far as helping the dog’s occasional itchy patch but agreed it wouldn’t do him any harm ‘so have a go’. I fed my dog and he absolutely loved it. Indeed, he was so enthusiastic that i’d have kept buying it whether it was good for him or not. It’s probably too soon to tell if it’s made any difference to jack’s itch – so far it’s still there, but i’ll post an update if the product seems to work.
