We recommend that you keep your dog in ideal body condition and not allow your dog to become overweight. The exact amount of food your dog requires will need to be adjusted according to age, activity and environment. But a good place to start is with these guidelines for an average, active, adult dog fed once daily.


Although you'll be anxious to see the difference Pro Plan can make in your dog, please allow 7 to 10 days to ease the transition from your dog’s current food. Each day, simply feed a little less of the previous food and a little more Pro Plan until you're feeding Pro Plan exclusively. 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.

While "Wingmaster01" doesn't recommend this food, I do not agree with his assessment.  "Wingmaster01" may need to try the "Sport All Life Stages Performance" formula.  Based on his review, that is the formula that would appear to best suit his needs/requirements.

This food is higher in carbohydrates and is the formula I use most and recommend to anyone feeding a dog needing more carbs in their diet.  No one food formula is correct for every dog; which is why there are multiple formulas to suit most needs.

It works

We feed  70 working foxhounds this feed and are very happy with the results. Having used several lesser quality (and less costly) products there is a real difference in our hounds' coats and stool. We do not have to feed as much of this food as the lesser quality and still have much better results.

Best food at any price

I transitioned to ProPlan about 16 years ago after becoming frustrated with "premium" boutique brands' inconsistency in distribution and ingredient tampering/spoilage. I had heard good things about ProPlan, but I wasn't completely convinced. After 2 months on ProPlan, my dogs never looked better, never performed better, and their overall health and durability rose to a level that I had never considered possible. Not only did I begin to win more with my dogs in the show ring (including National & Regional Specialty wins and all-breed Best in Show wins) but from a very practical standpoint, let me share with you this case in point: Just this past year I lost a beloved girl who was my first cradle-to-grave on ProPlan; When I reviewed and closed her vet records at the clinic, we were all astonished that this girl had NEVER been to the vet for ANY ailment in her ENTIRE life. You read that right: Never a case of upset stomach, never a hot spot, never any G.I. issues, no skin or gland issues. Her entire file was only 2 pages noting routine vaccines and her spay -!  I think over the course of nearly 16 years that I never spent an extra nickel at the vet much less the WORRY of an ailment of this girl that I loved so much, and I give much of the credit to ProPlan. My younger dogs continue to be in this league of durability, so I wouldn't dream of changing dog foods; Why would I?

Great Dry Feed

I have two English Black Labs. During duck season I like to put on some extra weight to help with the cold. The feed, I use to feed was not doing the job so I switch to Purina Pro Plan Sport in the 26/16 Mix and can say within a month my labs have gained a good healthy bodyweight but still have a healthy look and muscle tone to them. There stool is much harder than it used to be and their coats are soft and shiny. From A die hard water fowler in Missouri, I would recommend this feed to anyone with Labs or sporting dogs.

ProPlan has converted me! My dog loves it

We adopted a Jack Russell mix a few years ago. The first year or so I fed her Authority (not a bad food, but not nearly as good as ProPlan). Her coat was rather wiry, which I just assumed was because of her breed. A month after putting her on ProPlan Sport 26/16, her coat was noticeably smoother, and now it is even smoother yet. She loves this food, and I do, too.

Purina Sport is the BEST!

We love feeding Purina to our adult dogs and puppies! I would love to be able to send puppy packs home with their new owners.... If this is possible please advise me so their new families can feed them the best.

Greyt food!!

I'm a retired racing greyhound, and I've been eating Pro Plan Sport since my family adopted me over two years ago. Your food is greyt, I never have tummy problems (lots of greys do), and I'm aways told how handsome I am because I have a shiny, thick coat. Pro Plan is one of the recommended foods from my adoption group, Greyhound Adoption of Ohio, and we collect our weight circles for them, too. Thanks, Pro Plan, for helping the retired greyhounds. We are a greyt bunch of dogs!!!
