We have clients who are very happy with it. Our cats used to eat pro plan
before they had to switch to a prescription diet. We were happy with it.
Just remember that when switching diets that it shuld be done very
gradually, mixing the new food in a little at a time over at least a week or
more until finally it's just the new food. Plan fort gassiness or loose
stool, though it's not always a factor.

I fed it for 9 years, but just switched from it due to concerns with the
recall issues. They were not on the recall list, but I wanted something
without the ingredients that were involved with the recall. I know the
bisuits have wheat gluetin in them, and that made me uncomfortable.

I started with Purina for my pup over here in the UK.

It just didnt seem to agree with the pup.Upset guts etc.The only dry food I
would use here now is one called 'James Wellbeloved'

I try to stick to a more natural diet now after reading a book called 'Give A
Dog A Bone ' by Ian Billinghurst'.Though I don't agree entirely with total raw
(BARF) I still add James in the morning.

Purina Pro Plan is probably not the best food to feed your dog I would
suggest you try some high quality dog food. Purina has very low health
benefits and most the ingredients are by products. Dry kibble has only
like 4% real meat, most the protein content are from grains. I don't
know if your grocer carry this brand called Homestyle select, but my
dogs are thriving on it. It has a 70% real meal content, my dogs are
more active on this food and seem to have better stool (a problem my
dog have which I wont go into). So I would say if you looking for a
really good quality dog food try this out. Its not very pricy and beat
out most super premium dog food.

I don't feed ProPlan myself but this is a big fat load of
hooey. ProPlan is not Alpo, ProPlan is not Dog Chow, etc.
ProPlan is not the most exciting feed out there but it's not
bad.

Shame on you for uncritically repeating marketing crap.
