I had Porter on Wellness Whitefish & Sweet Potato and he loved it but the Vet recommended Purina Pro Plan Sensitive skin & Coat so we switched. Porter's poo on the new kibble leaves burn marks in the grass and his poo is dark and thin...not as healthy looking as his previous well formed poo. He likes the new food just as much and the smell is less intense but he itches more and eats grass now. I wake up in the morning hearing his stomach growl like it's not as filling. It's worth a try but I am going to switch back... the nutritional information is hardly different between the two brands but the Wellness worked better for Porter.
We switched our labradoodle from Purina One to this Purina Pro Plan ‘sensitive skin and stomach’ about a year ago. He had become a picky eater, and was having a few stool inconsistencies, and the switch seemed to do wonders! In the past month or two he has begun showing little to no interest in eating this food. We’ve been trying to figure out why. I just came back to order more and noticed all of the recent reviews about the formula change! Wow, now it all makes sense. I noticed the packaging had changed, but the food looked and smelled the same, so I figured it was the same. Now I am suspicious that something changed to make it not agree with him again. Since this ‘special’ formula costs almost 3x as much, we might as well go back to the cheaper stuff if it is going to affect his tummy and appetite the same. :(
I searched far and wide for a food that wouldn’t upset my dogs stomachs. I finally settled on PPP and they’ve been on it for well over a year and were doing great! However I picked up a new bag last month and noticed the coloring was different on the package and the kibble was lighter in color both dogs immediately started having GI issues. I thought maybe I just got a bad batch and purchased another bag but same thing happened. Then I decided to do a little digging today and it seems Purina has changed their formula. Both my dogs have had GI issues and skin issues since eating this new formula! Save your dogs stomach and skin and switch to a new food immediately!
I use to LOVE Purina Pro Plan, my 4-year-old 75lb mixed breed boy started on purina pro plan puppy when he was just 6 months old and we haven't strayed away since. He has always LOVED this formula. HOWEVER, since the change in branding/formula last month he REFUSES to eat this and when he does he has horrible diarrhea, is extremely lethargic on walks, and is panting way more. I never leave reviews for anything but felt compelled to leave one here because I dont know what happened with this new formula, but Brutus is very food driven and never has issues with any food of any kind and he struggles to eat this and when he does he has diarrhea. i will no longer be purchasing from purina pro plan.
My puppy was on the Purina pro plan puppy food and we just switched him to this adult food. A few days after the full switch we having the worst poops of his life. We were out 14 times in one day! After a vet visit we were advised to do rice and chicken a few days and try again with the kibble. the same thing happened the moment he had this kibble again!! We will not be getting this again. Going off to find a new food again for him is hard but it was awful seeing how sick he was on this food! Not sure if it’s a formula change like others are saying but we are all done with this food.
My dog has been eating this food for almost a year now and has absolutely loved it. Recently this past month he started acting very different. He refused to eat this food. He would sniff it and then back away. He started having very loose stools multiple times a day and extreme gas. Since he still continued to eat different types of treats, I figured it must be the food. I checked the chewy reviews and saw multiple people are having the same issue since the formula changed. Something is not right with it and I will have to switch foods since it’s making my pup so sick :/
My dog has eaten this food for the past 2 years with no issues. Starting a few months ago he stopped wanting to eat his food and began having severe gastrointestinal issues. Our vet eventually switched us to a prescription food and he’s had no issues in the last month and a half on the prescription food. Our vet suggested we try switching him back to his regular Purina pro plan and within one week of fully transitioning his food his stomach was upset again. Something in this food has changed, listen to the reviews!! I will not be purchasing this formula again.
My dogs have been on this food for a year and it has greatly improved the skin allergies of my Boston Terrier and Bulldog. I recently ordered a new bag of food with the new look (and formula) and both dogs began to eat grass. The bulldog starting vomiting, so I immediately stopped his food and it cleared up. I can't believe this is just due to a formula change and would caution anyone about buying this new food. I am thinking there is something wrong with the food and would not be surprised if there is a recall soon.
My dogs normal flavor has been out of stock for months. We switched to a different flavor and his gas got worse. We then tried this sensitive stomach variety and after three weeks his gas has gotten even worse. To the point we have to occasionally kick him out of our room while sleeping. Wanted to try the lamb variety of the sensitivity blend but it’s significantly more expensive. I guess it’s back to the semi-gassy beef variety.
If you are new to this food, it may not be as much of a concern; however, if you have previously purchased this food, beware! We have been giving this food to our 2 dogs (Bruce, a standard poodle, and Jack, a boston terrier) for years. Jack can pretty much tolerate anything but Bruce is a bit on the sensitive side hence the reason we were buying this brand/formula. We were set up on auto-ship and the most recent delivery had different packaging. Uncertain if that meant a change in formula, I turned to the Chewy website and everything showed a change in packaging, not formula. So, we proceeded to break into the new bag. I noticed Bruce acting different within 24 hours. We didn't immediately connect it to the food because we were under the impression the formula was the same so we went with bland chicken and rice for a day or so until all was normal again. Started him back on this food and then the diarrhea kicked up again but this time he was vomiting, as well. Although Bruce is the sensitive one, even Jack wasn't eating it. Not knowing what to do, I came back to the chewy website only to read reviews of others who had pets reacting similarly and some with MUCH WORSE symptoms/outcomes. Fortunately, Chewy's customer service is top tier and they quickly refunded our order and even helped us do some research to find that there was, in fact, a formula change even though it wasn't stated on packaging/website. Again, perhaps this is mainly an issue for those that are used to the old formula but I would encourage you to watch your dogs closely if giving this food. Knowing my pups are okay, at this point, my biggest issue is Purina not clearly labeling the product as a change in formula ESPECIALLY on a food that is for dogs with "sensitive skin & stomach." Maybe that has or will change but it should've been more clear from the beginning. Done with this brand!
