Most adult dogs can be fed once daily. However, when high activity or other factors create a higher feed intake, twice-a-day feeding is recommended. Dogs should be maintained in ideal body condition and not allowed to become overweight. The food intake required to maintain ideal body condition will vary, depending on age, activity and environment. Consequently, the amount of food required for each dog will vary and should be adjusted accordingly.

Provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily.

For your pet's health, see your veterinarian regularly.

Transition Instructions

When switching your dog to Beneful Originals dog food, please allow 7-10 days for the transition. Gradually add more Beneful Originals and less of the previous food to your dog's dish each day until the changeover is complete. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets.

FAQ

How do you ensure the quality of your dog and cat food?

We maintain a strict code of standards for buying, storing and processing ingredients used in our pet foods. These standards are among the strictest in the pet food industry. You can feed our food with confidence, knowing the Purina commitment to quality provides the best possible nutrition for your pet.

Do you test your dog and cat food for aflatoxins?

Yes. We have a meticulous quality assurance program for every incoming load of dog and cat food ingredients. We have ingredient specialists at each of our North American Purina pet food manufacturing facilities who are trained to sample and analyze incoming grain. Our grain testing program helps ensure only high-quality grains are used in our products. This testing is part of our comprehensive food safety and HACCP programs We maintain a strict code of standards for buying, storing and processing ingredients used in Purina pet foods, including grains. Every supplier of ingredients for Purina pet food must meet stringent standards for ingredient specification, product safety, sanitation and good manufacturing practices. Our quality assurance standards are among the strictest in the pet food industry.

Where is your dog and cat food manufactured?

99% of Purina pet food products sold in the U.S. are manufactured in our own facilities in the U.S.

Why does your dog and cat food contain colors?

Although dogs and cats are unable to distinguish color, we know that most pet owners consider the product’s appearance when purchasing food for their pet. Artificial coloring is added to maintain a more desirable and consistent appearance. All colorings used in our pet foods are approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Where are your ingredients sourced from? Are they sourced from China?

The vast majority of ingredients used in Purina brand products are sourced from the United States. As with other food companies, we do source a limited amount of ingredients from China. These ingredients, which are primarily essential nutrients, such as taurine and B vitamins, are not commonly available in the USA or other countries in the quantities we need.

Why use corn in dog and cat food? Is corn a filler?

“Filler” may be defined as feed ingredients for pet food with little or no nutritional value. Every ingredient in our formulas has a valuable function and plays a part in providing an excellent source of nutrition to your pet. When properly cooked, corn provides a highly digestible source of carbohydrate, essential fatty acids and protein, and thus, is not considered filler. Corn also has among the highest level of natural antioxidants of any grains. Purina only uses the same grades of corn traditionally used in human food products.

Does your dog and cat food contain GMO grains?

It is likely that our pet food contains GMO grains because genetically modified grain and grain products constitute a significant portion of the supply of grain available throughout the U.S. for both human and pet foods. U.S. grain handling and distribution practices result in a co-mingling of supply, which results in a loss of identity preservation.The FDA recognizes the safety and equivalence of products derived from U.S.-approved varieties of genetically modified grain, so there is no reason to exclude it from the general supply. In addition, the FDA does not require products containing GMO grains to bear additional labeling.

Why do you use by-products in dog and cat food?

By-products are defined as the co-product of a primary product and are usually portions of the animal not always consumed by people in the U.S. By-products are an excellent source of protein and other nutrients. By-products in pet foods that meet Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) guidelines come from clean animal parts other than meat, such as the liver, kidney and other organs. Purina purchases all by-products from USDA-inspected plants. They must meet stringent criteria for nutrient content, production and quality assurance.

What is animal digest?

Animal digest is often considered a substandard pet food ingredient. In some cases, this is because the word "digest" is mistakenly thought to describe the contents of the digestive tract. The word "digest" in "animal digest" refers to the digestive process used in production, not the ingredients.The process starts with animal protein such as muscle and soft tissue supplied by USDA-inspected facilities.These ingredients are processed in order to break them down, similar to the process of digestion in the body. The resulting digest is a liquid, but can also be made into a paste or powder.Animal digest is a high-quality ingredient that provides an excellent source of protein and enhances the palatability of Dog & Cat foods.

Why don’t you utilize a natural source of Vitamin K instead of menadione?

The basic story about the dangers of Menadione has emerged at various times during the past decades as something of an urban legend in the pet food industry and are not research-based. In fact, numerous research studies and nutritional textbooks have identified Menadione as a safe and effective means of providing the important nutrient Vitamin K to Dogs & Cats. Menadione has been commonly used in pet foods for approximately 25 years with no documented negative health effects. Menadione is a stable source of the essential nutrient vitamin K. Vitamin K provides the following nutritional benefits: it is required for the synthesis of a number of body proteins, most notably the proteins responsible for normal blood clotting.

How do I know how to feed my dog or cat? How do I know if my dog/cat is overweight?

Feeding your pet is one of the most important ways you can care for him. Once you have chosen the right food for your pet, you can develop a plan for portioning and scheduling. For more information, check your product package for specific feeding amounts.All of our Dog & Cat foods come with feeding instructions to help you properly feed your pet depending on his size, but certain types of pets may require specialized foods to help them maintain an ideal body condition.

What is a complete and balanced nutrition in dog or cat food?

Pet food makes up the entirety of a pet’s diet, so it needs to deliver all of the nutrients they need. That’s why pet foods so often use the phrase “complete and balanced.” Every pet food needs to meet federal (FDA) and state regulatory standards before it gets near your dog’s or cat’s bowl.

    Dog loves it

    By summer on Dec 22, 2020

    My 3 year old Mastiff-mix loves this. He eats it well and he’s doing well on it. However, I am disappointed that the chicken only comes in one size. My dog is 60 pounds and a 14 pound bag just does not last long. With his sensitive stomach, I don’t want to have to switch him over to the beef just to get a bigger bag. As always though, I’m impressed with the quality of Purina’s feed and of course, Chewy.

    My dogs love it

    By Leah on Nov 10, 2020

    I have a large Husky and a med size Yorkie. They both love this food. Chewy normally has the best prices and shipping is fast and painless through FedEx. I’ve been with them for quite a while as I have ferrets and the cost of their food seems to go up every time I order. But it’s not just here it’s everywhere.

    My girl loves it!

    By Jocie on Oct 2, 2020

    My girl can be very picky. And on top of all that, she does have a sensitive tummy so I was very hesitant on purchasing something else besides American journey (it's what worked for us). But happy to report that my baby eats all her food and has not shown any issues with her tummy. When she knows it's feeding time, she gets so excited. Looks like her tail is going to fall off from all the wagging LOL. Nice to know I will now have another option of brands to buy her in the future.

    Fantastic Delivery & Food

    By Mikki on Oct 18, 2020

    We've been feeding Beneful for the last few months to our 2 pups. We've done lots of expensive brands but eventually switched to this and it's done wonders for them. I decided to try using chewy as well and it was here a day later! Thank you for the wonderful and quick service, now we've got this on autoship for our pups!

    By N2paws on Jul 26, 2020

    My dogs seem to enjoy the food... I do mix this food with another higher protein dry food and with my one dogs breed, works well and gives them a well rounded dog food meal.... which helps with less poo and not soft and runny.

    1 out of 2 dogs don't like it.

    By Kona on May 4, 2020

    I usually purchase the Purina Beneful Original Beef Flavor, but for some reason I didn't see that item when I purchased the last time. I figured that this is similar. Well, I was wrong. One dog is fine with it, one doesn't like it much at all. Have to add some people food to get him to eat any of it :(

    She likes it.

    By Gmaw on Jun 12, 2020

    She likes it and I feel like its better for her. She has had allergies in the past and I'm hoping this new dog food will help with this problem. I'll let you know when I find out.

    Good Food/squished pill pockets

    By Jazzy on Apr 29, 2020

    My Jazzy loves this food! She is eleven years old and has lost many teeth. This is one dog food she can still eat. When I visit my daughter I have to take more food than Jazzy can eat because my daughters dog will eat Jazzy’s instead of her own food!

    COVID-19 alternative

    By Jez223 on Apr 4, 2020

    The COVID-19 Virus has caused a shortage of the Purina Beneful Beef flavor and my dog was nearly out when I found this alternative. She likes the Chicken but switching from Beef to Chicken upset her stomach. Thank you CHEWY ESSENTIAL EMPLOYEES for making the deliveries get thru. My dog eats.
