The Purina One SmartBlend product line includes nine dry dog foods
Purina Healthy Morsels is a plant-based dry dog food using a limited amount of unspecified meat and bone meal as its main source of animal protein, thus earning the brand 1 star.
My dog got very sick about two weeks ago. She had been refusing her food and only ate when no other options were given. She is a picky eater, so I did not see the warning signs. She is only two years old and has endless energy. She got extremely tired during our morning walk. Could barely make it home. Stopped and laid down. Then vomited. I picked her up and carried her home. She laid down – was breathing hard and not moving. Rushed to the vet. When we got there she was feeling better. Vet suspected something food related. Blood test showed high liver enzymes. Vet prescribed boiled rice, chicken & chicken broth for one week and recheck blood after two weeks. After two weeks, her last blood test came up spotless and she is feeling great again. She is really enjoying the home cooked meals, but it is not practical for me to do — with travel, etc. – so I am looking for healthy dog food she would enjoy — but staying away from Purina. I reported the incident to Purina and to the FDA. Thank you for this site.

Purina Healthy Morsels Dog Food | Review and Rating
Due to economic reasons I chose to try a cheaper dog food for a while and tried Purina One because it seemed close to the more expensive dog food I had been feeding. By the time we had gone through 3 bags 2 of my 3 German Shepherds developed large bald spots near their back ends and they had very inflamed skin. One had a very serious ear infection. His whole ear was red. Trying this product was a big mistake. I switched back to what I had been feeding and it took less than a week for the dogs sores to start healing and the dogs seemed relieved. I will never buy this or any cheap dog food again. I am just glad they weren’t poisoned or made more ill than they were. None of my dogs have ever been sick like this ever before. Shame on Purina for marketing such a sub standard food for our dogs!Purina Healthy Morsels is a plant-based dry dog food using a limited amount of unspecified meat and bone meal as its main source of animal protein, thus earning the brand 1 star.When switching to Purina Dog Chow Healthy Weight from another food, please allow 7 - 10 days for the transition. Gradually add more Purina Dog Chow Healthy Weight and less of the previous food to your pet’s dish each day until the changeover is complete. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets.I should’ve researched before buying my food. My vet recommended switching my dog from Taste of the Wild to Purina (no joke). And like a doofus, I listened. On TotW, my dog ate about 5 cups of food a day and was satisfied for the rest of the day. With Purina, I have to feed him 10 cups and provide him with many supplements to ensure his health. When you do the math, this stuff comes out to be the same price as higher quality foods. Oh well, live and learn, right? But I definitely would not recommend this to anyone.
