Purina Calm & Balanced Food

My two rescue pups had been on the same food for about 2 years (Science Diet Perfect Digestion), but I was intrigued by the idea of a "calm and balanced" specialty food, so I decided to give this formulation a try. We are just finishing up our first bag (so it hasn't been the full recommended 12 weeks yet!) but I do think there have been subtle behavioral changes and I plan to continue feeding both dogs this food. Neither of my dogs are picky eaters, so they seem to enjoy it and I have no complaints as it comes out the other side in "great form" if you catch my drift lol!

Calming food

Good food. Been on it for a week but haven’t noticed any change in calming her. But she really likes it and does well on it

Dogs stopped eating

Once I started incorporating this food into my dogs current diets, they both stopped eating entirely, even once I removed this food from the mix. One of my dogs started vomiting. One week after visiting the vet, he still hasn't begun eating. They usually do well on other pro plan formulas but not this one. Not sure if it helped with calming as I stopped giving it after a week of my dogs starving themselves.

Great results so far

My 2 yr old Chowdoodle Teddy is not only a Covid dog, he is most definitely autistic, afraid of more then 1 person at a time, flashing lights, rain, loud noises just to name a few. We recently went through Hurricane Ian, damage to the house yard and then my 5 yr old GSD was diagnosed with cancer and had to be put down. It’s been a difficult 5 months and I would do anything to help Teddy, he is petrified of our Fl. Thunderstorms and has a tendency to knock stuff off of everything. I’ve had to bolt the TV’s to the walls. Fast forward 6 weeks in on the food and powder supplement. He slept through a bad thunderstorm yesterday, completely ignored the fireworks and just came on the lanai to hear the thunderstorm were about to have, this is NOT the same dog that is petrified of everyone and everything. It’s still very early on this food but so far he seems to have calmed down on his own when he is stressed.

High Calorie Food

My dog likes this food but beware if you were feeding a brand with lower protein and switch to this they will gain weight. I followed the chart on the back for how much to feed and my boy got chonky. I recommend giving smaller portions than what’s listed.

Great for skin and fur, and maybe calming

We’ve been using this food for our rescue dog for about a year now. I’m not totally sure how much it calms her, but she has several active breeds (German Shepherd, Austrian Shepherd, Collie, etc.), and is a generally chill dog! She gets a little anxious about car rides and needs extra calming treats. And she gets very excited when we come home, but nothing out of the ordinary. Mostly, this food has helped her skin and fur SO MUCH! When we rescued her, she had flaky, dry skin, and roughly-textured fur like a horse brush. It only took a month or two on this food to see a change. Her fur is glossy and soft, and her skin no longer flakes. No digestive issues being on this food either. Overall very happy with this food!

She loves it!

Bought this for our fearful weirdo and she has been doing amazing on it. It's been a world of difference (coat/poops/energy) compared to "bougie" brands. Not to mention she actually loves the food, as opposed to many other brands we tried. Like any supplement for fear/anxiety, changes are going to be subtle and slow and it will be hard to determine whether or not a certain change in behavior is caused by the supplement or something else. There's no magical fix that will all of a sudden completely cure your anxious dog. It will always be a combination of training, nutrition and patience. Also, it's not going to magically transform your hyper puppy or high energy dog into a calm couch potato. It sure it will help, but you still got to put in the work.
