This is the only dog food brand that we buy our dog and she loves it.
We got Diesel when he was 2 years old. He was underweight (ribs showing, hip bones sticking out, and spine showing). He is a large German Shepherd (29 inches at the shoulder) who only weighed 72 pounds (ideal per the vet is around 80-90 pounds). We started off by feeding him 4-Health whitefish and potato which was due to a possible chicken allergy and chronic ear infection. He kept losing weight despite being fed 7 cups a day. Our vet made the recommendation to try the ProPlan Salmon and Rice. We started with 7 cups a day after a very slow transition and within a month he has gained almost 1-1/2 pounds!!! We've reduced the amount we feed to 6 cups now as we don't want to overdo it and he is flourishing. As of today he's up almost 2 pounds after six weeks on ProPlan. Thank you for such a great product and we're so glad we're finally putting some weight on this boy! His coat is gorgeous as well!!!
After transitioning from puppy food (Purina One Large Breed), my golden retriever got very picky about her food. We went through a spate of different flavors/products, but she would still leave much of it uneaten. Her stools were often soft and had mucus. As a last resort before taking more extreme measures, we tried this formula, and: a) she eats it all enthusiastically; and b) after a couple of weeks, her stools are now consistently normal. It's a real transformation, and we couldn't be more pleased.

RECOMMENDED DAILY FEEDING AMOUNTS
Using a standard 8 oz/250 ml measuring cup which contains approximately 115 g of Pro Plan.
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 - 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.
