PURINA ONE® SMARTBLEND® Healthy Puppy Formula Dog Food
In our Healthy Puppy Food, we start with real chicken as our #1 ingredient. Plus rice, oat meal and other key ingredients – all in amounts that provide high levels of essential nutrients. Why? Because puppies aren’t dogs. They need more – including more protein to get growing. And this blend of dry puppy food gives them all that including DHA, a nutrient also found in mother’s milk, for vision and brain development. It’s choosing ingredients that work better together than they ever could on their own that inspired us to call this puppy food Smartblend.
What’s A Dual Defense Antioxidant Blend? One That Works Inside & Out.
It’s probably not something your puppy thinks about, but his SMARTBLEND is working around the clock. It starts with a dual defense antioxidant blend of Vitamins E & A along with minerals zinc and selenium in a 100% complete diet for your puppy. Together, they make a healthy difference on the inside by supporting your dog’s strong immune system and on the outside by supporting healthy skin and a radiant coat.
We’re inspired by the science in nature, discovering the power of smart ingredients that work together for your puppy’s whole body health.
Real chicken is the #1 ingredient, blended with other high-quality protein sources, to help support strong muscles and a healthy heart.

Puppy Feeding Instructions
Start puppies on moistened PURINA ONE as early as they will nibble at solid foods, generally 3-4 weeks of age. Allow your puppy to eat at will until fully weaned (6-8 weeks). After weaning, feed pups (to six months of age) all of the moistened or dry PURINA ONE they will consume at intervals throughout the day. If water is added, use no more than one part warm (not hot) liquid to four parts Purina ONE, changing frequently to ensure freshness. If fed dry, this formula may be kept before pups at all times. For best results, develop a regular feeding schedule, such as three small meals a day for younger puppies. Gradually reduce to one feeding in the morning and one in the evening as your puppy ages. The routine should not vary.
When Feeding for Reproduction
PURINA ONE provides the extra nutrition needed by reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation. Food consumption may vary during gestation, so feed the amount needed to maintain the pregnant female’s good body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation.
The Importance of Ideal Body Condition
Nestlé Purina Research indicates that avoiding overfeeding of puppies may help their development. Maintaining ideal body condition is key to encouraging proper growth in all puppies, especially large breeds. The indicated amounts are only a guideline. If your puppy becomes overweight, a reduction of your puppy’s daily food intake may be appropriate. You may wish to consult your veterinarian about a weight control program.
Making the Switch to PURINA ONE
Although you’ll be anxious to see the difference PURINA ONE can make in your dog, please allow 7–10 days to ease the transition from his current food. Each day, simply feed a little less of the previous food and a little more PURINA ONE until you’re feeding PURINA ONE exclusively. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets.
No Supplements Necessary
PURINA ONE provides 100% complete and balanced nutrition. There is no need to add vitamins, minerals or other supplements, unless specifically directed by a veterinarian.
