Our 8-month-old puppy has eaten this exact formulation since he started eating food. Typically, he scarfed his food down so quickly that I bought him a slow-feeder bowl. Recently, he was highly put off by his food and would only eat it if I put something on it. I called Chewy wondering if there was a recall. There was not and Chewy was nice enough to send me another bag to see if something was off. That was not it. I stayed in touch with our breeder and I am in a Facebook group with other owners from the same breeder. 3 other dogs have experienced the same exact recent dislike and refusal for PPP Salmon and Rice. There must be a change in the formulation. I just purchased a bag of Fromm food (sadly not sold by Chewy) and our pup scarfed it down like the good ole days!
Reese may not be as active and athletic as he used to be, but he is still a pretty fit senior. There have been lots of changes as he's aged, including losing hair on his tail and getting a bit thin. This diet keeps his body condition in tip top shape. There is no questioning the difference this diet makes. His coat is also very bright, red and shiny! This diet keeps weight on him and good muscle tone. I feed the same diet to his wife-dog, who is twice the size. I give her the same portion size, since she does not burn calories like he does. We LOVE this food and are so happy that it keeps my old man healthy.
I've been trying to find food that will work for our boxers. We like RC Boxer, but were hoping to find another food that wasn't so expensive. So I purchased two small bags of this hoping that would be enough food to determine if our pups liked it. The good part, they both seemed to enjoy the flavor, the bad part was one of our boxers started projectile vomiting within 30 minutes of eating the food. It was the only change and it happened so quickly. He vomited a total of eight more times before he finally stopped. This was after one feeding. Not sure if something was wrong with just this bag, it was sealed and didn't have any holes in it. But I won't be feeding the second bag either. I plan on contacting Purina directly as well. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this food.
My Australian Cattle Dog Mix needed to switch to salmon food due to ear infections since an allergy may have been the culprit. I'm really not sure about this one. We feed her to the amounts directed on the box and she wakes up in the middle of the night with her tummy rumbling and gagging/puking from hunger. She is a bit active (she goes on sprint marathons in the yard), but we had to opt for the performance since others were out of stock at the time. She also sniffs it with a questioning glance as if she doesn't really want to eat it and she is a dog that LOVES her meal time. Her poops are also super firm, so we needed to add some pumpkin puree or something to loosen up the stools. We almost took her to the vet due to the puking... So we are switch to the normal salmon and rice blend. It sucks because we bought two large bags so that was a waste of money.
Been using Pro plan sport for two years now, whether it be chicken or salmon. My dogs love it. My four year old Dutch shepherd, 8 month old standard poodle, and two 8 week old Golden retrievers thrive on it. All dogs are healthy, active, and I add in extra salmon oil on top for their coats. Their coats have never been shinier. My poodle has a sensitive stomach to chicken, and we made the switch to salmon!
Not sure what is in this food but it made my dog sick. I was doing the transition feeding of 25% new/75% old food. I noticed he didn't seem as perky as usual (thought he was just tired from activity) but by the 3rd feeding, he couldn't take it anymore and vomited it all up. I then went back 100% to old food and he is more perky and not sick anymore.
We have 10 dogs and were using different dog food for different breeds. This food has cut allergies out and they all love it. 10 out of 10 recommend.
We've purchased this twice now. We keep it stored in a screw top, air tight container. It has gone bad about 2/3 of the way through the batch each time, making our puppy sick (no appetite for the food, and runny poops). I'm sure the product is good, but the fact that it doesn't last is pretty terrible.
Been on purine pro plan for a year now his skin and coat is looking great. So is his performance and puts on a healthy weight
My German shorthair Pointer had been underweight for almost an entire year. After vet trips to check for worms or any other type of parasite we decided to go with a different food. We were using blue Buffalo which I thought was a very high quality food. My vet recommended Purina Pro Plan sport. since my GSP is very active. During hunting season, she logs about 100 miles a month based on her GPS tracker and even normally has about 2 hours of active training during the off season. Long story short this food added 10 pounds in about 6 weeks and she actually likes it which is an added benefit. She is still a leaner dog by nature, but she has a heartier build now. If you have a VERY active dog this food is worth the money. I feed her 3 cups of food in the off-season about 5 cups of food during season. If you have a thin, active dog and would like to beef them up this is the food for you.
