Dog Chow Dog Food 18.5 lb (8.39 kg) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 1599.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! One dog food ALL five of My dogs love! I have five big dogs. Three are mine, two I foster. Feeding them all can get pretty expensive! I go through almost 200 pounds of dog food a month. After having tried umpteen different brands of dog food, I got the life scared out of me when one of the cheaper brands made two of my dogs VERY sick! And I KNOW for a fact it was the cheap food because just as soon as I switched them to Purina brand - ALL of the illness went away! Now I just take one can of chicken broth and sprinkle all five bowls with it. They scarf it up! I get a LOT of compliments about how "fit" my dogs look! I will NEVER change brands again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the dogs and great for the owner I bought this dog food awhile back and have continued to use it for a couple of major reasons. One the three dogs I have were getting sluggish and not active on another brand. Second The amount of waste and gooey waste was unbelievable with other brands. And third the coats on our dogs were looking dull and dirty all the time .We originally thought maybe it was the wash. But now after feeding our dogs the Purina dog chow all the time the dogs are all back to being lively with Great looking coats. For me the amount of waste I have to pick up is at least half of what it used to be. So Purina Dog Chow is not only Great for my Three dogs it is also Great for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It will be 15 years strong his year! My review is that my best friend Goose a Labrador Retriever that I rescued when I was 19 years old as a 3 month old pup. At least thats what I believe. That was close to 15 years ago and its been puppy chow and dog chow since the start. Every time he has ever been to vet they have said hes perfectly healthy. He weighed 103lbs in his prime and currently about 88lbs. They way he is going I will get to have my wing man Goose for years to come and cant help but think purina plays a huge part in both that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I recently switched my dog's food brand to dog chow and I am now convinced enough to write a review for on the food. I have had my lab mix on Pedigree diet for two years and I've always noticed that he didn't eat all of this food. The food also had a lot of grease and oil that would seep through its bag. I had been looking for a brand that would be beneficial to his health yet not too expensive. With all that in mind, I picked up Purina Dog chow. It was cheaper than the previous brand I had been using. From the first time my dog had this brand, he has loved it! He eats all of his food now and with our active lifestyle, I couldn't be any happier with the nutrition of this food! I would recommend this product to anyone! I am so happy that I switched to Purina Dog Chow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my German Shepherd and Black Labrador. I have fed my Dogs Dog Chow since around 1985. They love this food and eat it like they love it. I have never had upset stomachs when feeding my dogs this brand. The back yard waste is easy to pick up, no runny doo doo or mud pies. This food is so good that you could feed it to little puppies. Its all life stages. I trust Purina and all the research they put into the foods they make. I know a lot of breeders. They use Purina brands. Dog Chow works great for my dogs they are so active and happy. Purina has to keep up the fight against those FAD grain free brands. They use Potatoes instead of corn. Its just a gimmick to the gullible people that believe anything. The Corn is ground up and cooked just right so the dogs do digest it very well. I am with Purina. I even use Purina Layena for my egg laying hens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used it for YEARS... Dog Chow (Green Bag) was recommended to me in the 60's by a German Shepard Club for my first dog. I have used it ever since either with or without other ingredients. I've never had a problem with dogs eating it or having a reaction to it. I've had Dalmatians in my life since the 90's and I've only had one dog come up with a 'bladder stone'. The other 6 have never had an issue. I love that it has NEVER had a recall either. This gives me peace of mind. Please keep up the great work on helping to keep our dogs safe. I do wish you would put your purine levels in your ingredience list for those of us concerned about this. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dogs Love It !!! After years of buying all the expensive dog foods, then grain free, I still had a dog with severe skin allergies. I decided to try Purina Dog Chow for various reasons. One it was plant based. Science says amino acids and protein are just that, with no difference in their source. She stopped itching after eating this food. My two large dogs loved it also. I go through 66 pounds of kibble per month. I couldn't get out of my head "if they have been in business for 80 years how can their food be so bad"? [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Food We rescued our dog Bella as a puppy she had parvo when we got her and it messed up her immune system. We feed her Purina dog chow and ever since she has had a beautiful coat and no more rashes when we feed her just a generic dog food she was always having skin rashes and she would have blisters around her mouth since the dog chow she has flawless skin and no more rashes or blisters around her mouth I highly recommend Purina Dog Chow and she just loves it

Directions
Store in a cool, dry place. The Purina Life Plan: An unprecedented fourteen-year study by Purina proves that you can help extend your dog's healthy years by feeding to his ideal body condition throughout his life. Use the Recommended Daily Feeding Amounts. Feed to Ideal Body Condition: Too Thin - Ribs are highly visible. Increase the amount you are feeding. After 2 to 3 weeks, compare again. Adjust until dog exhibits ideal body condition; Ideal - Can feel outline of ribs. Dog has a waist when viewed from above. Belly is tucked up when viewed from the side. Maintain current feeding regimen; Too Heavy - Dog has no waist when viewed from above. Belly is rounded when viewed from the side. Decrease amount you are feeding. After 2 or 3 weeks, compare again. Adjust as necessary. Recommended Daily Feeding Amounts (Using a standard 8-oz measuring cup): Adult Dog (3-12 lbs): Feed 1/3 to 1 cups daily. Adult Dog (13-20 lbs): Feed 1 to 1-1/3 cups daily. Adult Dog (21-35 lbs): Feed 1-1/3 to 2 cups daily. Adult Dog (36-50 lbs): Feed 2 to 2-2/3 cups daily. Adult Dog (51-75 lbs): Feed 2-2/3 to 3-1/3 cups daily. Adult Dog (76-100 lbs): Feed 3-1/3 to 4-1/4 cups daily. Adult Dog (Over 100 lbs): Feed 4-1/4 cups daily plus 1/4 cup for each 10 lbs of body weight over 100 lbs. Amounts are recommended for an average adult dog with normal activity. Remember food intake requirements vary depending on age, activity and environment, and should be adjusted accordingly. Feeding Weaning Pups: Puppies start to nibble on solid foods at 3-4 weeks of age. Keep moistened Purina Dog Chow (Three parts kibble to one part water) available to puppies at all times until fully weaned (6-8 weeks of age). Feeding Growing Pups: After weaning, Purina Dog Chow can be fed moistened or dry at the same time every day - very young puppies three times a day, older puppies twice a say. Use the feeding guidelines shown here, but remember individual needs can vary. Feed to maintain ideal body condition as shown on the back panel. Slight appetite changes and occasional digestive upsets are normal in puppies. If upsets become severe or linger longer than a day or two, contact you veterinarian. Feeding for Reproduction: Purina Dog Chow provides the extra nutrition needed by reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation. Food consumption may vary during gestation, so feed the amount needed to maintain the pregnant female's good body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation. Switching to Purina Dog Chow: When switching to Purina Dog Chow from another food, please allow 7-10 days for the transition. Gradually add more Purina Dog Chow and less of the previous food to your pet's dish each day until the changeover is complete. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets. Provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily. For your pet's health, see your veterinarian regularly.
