Purina One SmartBlend Dog Food - an independent review, star rating and recall history by the editors of The Dog Food Advisor.
I have been feeding my large breed dog Purina One large breed formula for two years without issue. When they changed the formula to smart blend he got very sick. vomiting, diarrhea, etc. I thought it might have been a bad batch, so when they ran out of the old formula, I tried smart blend again. Nope. The smart blend makes him VERY sick. I want to let Purina know, but they have no ratings and reviews on their site. I’m going to have to switch to another brand. It’s too bad, I’ve had dogs on purina one for years and it’s been a great food.
I really want to provide the best food for my dogs and some of the reviews left on the Purina ONE listing are really scaring me. I just don’t know what to do considering the circumstances. There are no PetCos or PetSmarts here in Korea so my only other option is to try to order online.

Purina One Smart Blend Dog Food - My 3 medium size dogs were switched to the Chicken & Rice Formula 3 months ago from a more expensive brand that I had been buying. They seemed to adjust okay until this last bag which I've been purchasing at Walmart. The bag appears to be lighter in weight and noticed large sponge like morsels. My dogs are now refusing it to eat it, I figured maybe they were just not hungry enough so I'd save it for the next go around. Then I noticed that my dogs are not acting as spunky, shaky and having diarrhea. When I called the number listed on the bag and ask if they changed something in the ingredients they denied any change and said that the food is 100% nutritious if they ate it all. After reading all the negative reviews I am definitely getting them off this food.On the advice of my vet, we switched our retrievers to Purina -- specifically Purina ONE SMARTBLEND Healthy Weight Formula Adult Dog Food - Turkey. There are MOTHS coming out of the secure container I keep the food in. The kibble goes directly from the bag to this lidded container and I can't believe it. I read previous reviews initially upon switching and thought for sure it was a storage issue -- nope, it's a production issue. If my dogs didn't already eat bugs and other disgusting things this would totally gross me out. Surely Purina should have better quality control.Today I’m putting together a review for everyone who has been considering Purina One SmartBlend Lamb and Rice. Purina One SmartBlend dog food reviews often conflict with each other about whether Smartblend is a good line of food or not. I’m going to try to help clear that up for you.Was recommended to put my new puppy on puppy chow large breed by my vet. After ruling out several bacterial infections with antibiotics, vet and I reviewed the "new" ingredients list. Turns out the food has almost no meat in it now, is loaded up with tripe and corn, and has a ton of red dye in it. We both were also horrified to find they use garlic oil in it, as all parts of the onion family are toxic to dogs. Some dogs can tolerate small amounts of garlic, many breeds develop very bad reactions that can be life threatening. The fact that a dog food would contain it at all is mortifying considering they recommend so much more kibble to be fed than higher quality brands. My pup now has IBD from the intestinal damage done from this food after 7 weeks of testing. He now routinely has to take medications or has internal bleeding and diarrhea. Thanks Purina for almost killing my puppy and making the rest of his life miserable.
