The past few years I’ve been feeding my Italian greyhounds a dehydrated grain/free food. I started reading about the possibility of links between grain/-free food and a certain cardiac disorder and realized I needed to make a switch. This was also around the time I got a new 3-month/old puppy I took the advice from a vet in another state fixing my puppies broken leg. This vet serves dogs in his clinic as well as his own dogs Pro Plan. I started the transition right away after going through the proplan.com website. My dog took some time to adjust, but now woofs it down. What I’ve noticed so far is that his lean muscle mass is more prominent. His now 5 month/old brother is confined my older dog is getting something better than he is and vice versa. My puppy is getting Pro Plan Puppy Focus for toy breeds, and doing well on it.
My new dog really loved the food. Didn't have to coax

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.
MAKING THE SWITCH TO PRO PLAN
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.
