I have been using Purina Pro Plan for large puppies. For our puppy this is the best puppy food . This is what the breeder was using but I also bought a too larger bag then I realised so kept it. Our puppy licks the bowl clean every time.

Pro Plan is a great food. There are a lot of great foods. There are also people who will say its full of fillers and crap ingredients but the fact is that Purina has been around for a long time, employs veterinary nutritionists, and conducts feeding trials to prove the safety and balance of their diets. Only a few companies actually do that, the others being Royal Canin, Eukanuba, and Hills. While I do feed Victor, I also will throw in some RC and Euk. Most foods out there arent formulated by veterinary nutritionists and have zero feeding trials proving their safety.

This is so true. I know people who feed Purina proplan breeders a vet who switched from raw to Purina proplan and her dogs looked just as good - a vet to I might add. It is hard to look at those ingredients but the trials and veterinary nutritionist that back these foods does speak volumes. Food is confusing you just have to go by how your dog looks and health.

I know quite a few people that are going back to Purina after the DCM scare. I've met a few dogs on Pro Plan Sport 30/20 and they look good. I'm transitioning to Sensitive Skin and Stomach with my two to see how they do.

My girl is currently on PPP SSS. I tried FirstMate given the DCM scare as I was feeding Acana, but she was constantly biting herself and itching non-stop. She also was disinterested in the food, which is super rare for her. She'd walk away from her bowl with it being only partially eaten when she's the kind of dog to lick it clean afterwards.

I'm still on the fence about it. Morally, I've been against super large food companies because I'm always concerned about ethics. But so far, I have no complaints in terms of my girl. She loves the food (Salmon recipe) and is back to licking the bowl clean. She isn't biting or itching herself non-stop, and I did a hard switch too. No slow integration. Poops are 100% normal, same size, same frequency. My SIL's Golden breeder feeds her dogs PPP Focus and her dog's grandmother is still kicking and healthy at almost 15 years old. A great feat for a Golden given their incidence rates of cancer and other ailments.

The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.

We are on purina pro plan sport 30/20 salmon recipe, and mine loves it. His coat is soft, his stools are normal when he’s eating it, etc. i was torn between royal canin and proplan but went with proplan and haven’t stopped feeding it to him since 8 weeks. Have been interested in Victor but because he’s doing so well, i don’t see a point to just change his diet.

No. I don't like that Purina uses menadione, a controversial form of vitamin K linked to liver toxicity, allergies and the abnormal break-down of red blood cells.
