Purina One (Lamb & Rice)

Purina One (Lamb & Rice) for dogs is one up from the other two products they make being Purina Beneful and Purina Dog Chow. Those two add no value to your dog’s life. This one makes a small change but not by much over the other two dog products. Not sure I understood the “longliveyourdog” slogan!

The main ingredient in Purina One is lamb which is a good start. Not as good as saying lamb meal but lamb none the less. From there it goes downhill much like their other products except they added oatmeal to the diet as well which is a plus but much further down their list of ingredients.

Purina for some odd reason likes adding brewers rice to all their products in great quantity. There is no nutritional value in the brewers rice and this should be excluded or in smaller amounts. They also make use of two types of corn products. Corn gluten then again whole corn. There is simply put too much grain in their products. As stated this is much better than the other products they offer.

Good Points:

They have lamb as the main ingredient but there is simply too much grain in this product.
