    My dog buddy lived till he was 15yrs old. He was a sheltie who loved your food. All he liked eating was your green dry food bag. There were times when a vet would try to give us a food that they thought was better but if gave it to him he would refuse to eat it and give me that look of, "Well where's my food,?" When he left this earth he still had all of his teeth in his mouth. Wow. That speaks volumes especially when vets ask you what is this dog eating. All I can say and express is keep doing what you have been All these years. Sometimes it's not fancy packaging or big prices. It's just all about wholesome goodness. God bless your product. Long live all our dogs cats and anything other.

    I had 10 week old (2 month old) puppies also have 4 other dogs as well, we also get them Retriever food because that's all my dogs eat. Anyways we ended up buying the Purina, 4 of my dogs got sick. Puppy starved himself. Wouldn't touch it. My female dog was throwing up and my other 2 puppies were so sick throwing up. Blood coming out. When they pooped it smelt so bad, and stopped eating and drinking. We tried everything to save them and they both passed away due to your food.

      The dog food is a good source of nutrients for dogs of any age. They enjoy the food, and I think it is a great dog food. People buy this dog food more I think than any other brand. From a puppy to a adult dog.

      I have fed Purina Dog Chow to every dog I had since the 80s. They live long happy lives. The quality seems to be very good for the price you pay. I will continue to feed this brand of dog food until I no longer have a dog.

      Purina is a little on the expensive side but it is the only brand that my dog would eat (she was a picky eater). Also did not cause my dog to have diarrhea or constipation which happened with other brands.

      Purina is a great company! I have fed it for many years. I feed dogs, cats, ducks, chickens and goats. Haven't had problems with any Purina products as of today. I also have had several Veterinarians and dog trainers to recommend feeding Purina Pro plan.

      I have never used Purina puppy food... Bought it yesterday 10/31/21 and gave it to my babies. Today they are all sick! Vomiting, diarrhea and crying in pain. They are the loves of my life and never will I use this again! Now to see how they feel tomorrow. They all have bloody stools. My poor babies.... Don't feed this to your babies, this is horrible!!!

      I have a healthy 8 year old pitbull. He has had all vaccinations and is a strictly inside dog with no unsupervised trips outdoors. He normally eats Purina One and has since he was a puppy. Yesterday, I hadn't gone to the store yet and had a bag of Purina little bites that I had gotten on sale to donate. I gave my dog a bowl of little bites to tide him over. He was excited and jumped around barking at his food because it was new. He ate the whole bowl. An hour later, he started feeling sick and vomited 3 or 4 times. I assumed it was bloat and let him rest.

      After 10 minutes or so, he became lethargic. He wouldn't move at all and felt cold to the touch. We went on to bed but kept him next to me. 3 hours later, I checked on him and he was having problems breathing. We loaded him up and carried him to the vet. They did immediate oxygen, xrays and blood work. He had all signs of a poisoning! He was dehydrated, bad liver enzymes, high white count and heartbeat was irregular. They started antibiotics and kept him in ICU for 5 hours hoping for a miracle when he went into cardiac arrest. My healthy 8 year old pup is dead because of a bowl of Purina Little bites. Please Please do research before you try a new food. I didn't read any beforehand and now I'm burying my best friend..

      My dogs have been on Purina chicken flavored food for years, this last bag after eating they keep throwing it up, I think it's this bag of food, got to change brands I guess. I dont understand why it's making them sick.

      We started feeding my dog Purina Dog Chow because it was cheaper. Within two weeks, my dog went from healthy to DEAD. Lethargy, loss of appetite, occasional vomiting. Finally liver, gallbladder, and intestinal SWELLING. Her liver failed and the vets couldn't figure out what had happened. But after seeing other reviews of very, very similar experiences with their pets, I'm convinced this dog food killed my pet. Please do not feed your dogs this kind of dog food.
