Pets can be sensitive to sudden changes in their diets. For this reason, it is extremely important to follow a gradual transition plan to best support your pet's health and product effectiveness. It is recommended to follow at least a 7-day transition plan before exclusively feeding your pet a new food. Start by mixing 75% of your pet's current diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the current diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the current diet with 75% of the new diet. On Day 7, you can feed your pet the new food exclusively. Ask your Veterinarian about the best way to transition your pet to a new food.

My Doberman initially ate the vegetarian. I subsequently switched him to the chicken. I had three bags in a row which made him so sick that I finally called the Purina company directly. They sent me a small bag of the vegetarian, so I switched him back to the vegetarian. He has lost weight, he vomits all the time and he is extremely lethargic and just not himself. He has such bad food allergies it's really difficult for me to find anything on the market that he can eat besides an HA diet. But definitely this particular product both the vegetarian and the chicken have caused him to be extremely sick. After 7-25 bags of both flavors I'm taking him off. I did report to Purina that one of the bags had odd looking chunks in it, chunks that were not in any of the previous bags I was able to give them the lot number but there was no reasoning behind the chunks. Despite being on ha my dog still takes apoquel, Cytopoint and Nextmune injections. It cost me approximately $300 a month. I love him but he still suffering there's got to be a better way.
I see a lot of positive reviews which made me hopeful that he would do well on this. April 19, 2023 he switched to the vegetarian formula as the chicken was still causing allergies. Tuesday May 23, 2022, he needed emergency surgery as he had a blockage preventing food from passing from stomach to colon. My vet is stumped on what it is as it is definitely food related. Due to his pancreatitis, he is on a very strict diet and only occasionally gets fruit and veggies.
My American Mastiff we just found out has numerous allergies to certain proteins. We were given a prescription for this for him. Hoping this would appeal to him. Well he won’t even touch it neither will our other dog that doesn’t have allergies. What a waste.
My dog has been eating this food for a year. In the last week, the food (3 different bags) has caused my dog to be sick and in the hospital. All other causes have been ruled out, the food taken away from the dog. As soon as she started eating it again, she is vomiting and diarrhea.
My 2 year old Westie has had stomach issues and our vet suggested we try Purina Pro Plan HA Hydrolyzed Vegetarian together with same brand of probiotics. The two products together have completely cured her stomach issues and made a new dog out of her. She has much more energy and obviously feels better than before. It's been a winner for us.
My 14yo westie has bad skin issues, so we're hoping this hypoallergenic food helps. It's only been a couple weeks, so too soon to tell. He does like the taste and have had no reaction to this formula.
Purina ProPlan was recommended by our vet so we tried this food as a last resort for our GSP as she has a sensitive stomach and allergies. Unfortunately, it gave her explosive, bloody diarrhea all over our apartment balcony. Poor dog was shaking and drooling excessively afterwards. Given this experience, I do not recommend this food at all or any other Purina brand.
As of right now Purina has not recalled this exact type but my dog has been experiencing all of the issues listed on the recall except for drooling. We thought he had a different issue needing to urinate more and being sick more often but it matches the recall so I would avoid this food for awhile or at all. My dog is going to the vet today so we can get a prescription for a different brand.
Our veteranarian prescribed this food for our 18-pound wire fox terrier last year. She has chronic pancreatitis. This diet has worked for her beautifully. But what we have noticed is that when we break it up with a meat mallet, she finishes both breakfast and dinner completely instead of leaving kibble behind. If only Purina would make this food in smaller bite pieces for smaller dogs.
My dog's vet prescribed this when Purina Elemental was recalled. Even with a slow transition, my dog developed bloody diarrhea with this kibble. The vet immediately said stop using this kibble and we have transitioned to another prescription kibble (Royal Canin Ultamino) with no issues. Sorry, but based on my dog's reaction (my dog has IBD) I can't recommend this kibble.
