Wonderful for dogs with allergies or sensitivities
I tried this as part of a sample I received...my dogs love it! I love that it is grain free so I know they are getting even better nutrition from a brand I know and trust.
I often foster dogs who are not from the Midwest and sometimes they have problems acclimating to the many many allergies of this region. Our vet recommended a grain free diet for these dogs. We have had great success with the ProPlan Natural Grain free line of adult dog foods!

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.
FEEDING WEANING PUPS
Start puppies on dry or moistened Pro Plan as early as they begin to nibble at solid foods, generally 3 - 4 weeks of age.
FEEDING GROWING PUPS
Feed pups (to six months of age) all of the moistened Pro Plan they will consume at intervals throughout the day. If fed dry, Pro Plan may be kept before pups at all times.
FEEDING FOR REPRODUCTION
Pro Plan provides the extra nutrition needed by reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation. Food consumption may vary during gestation, so feed the amount needed to maintain the pregnant female's ideal body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation.
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.
