Key Points

Suitable for: All adult dogs that suffer with weight gain as a complete and balanced diet to keep up their health.

Main Ingredient: The main ingredient is chicken (14%), a great protein source - better than most dog foods that feature cereal as the main ingredient! 

Main Meat Source: The exact origin of the chicken is not listed, but it supplies the diet with excellent rich protein.

Protein Amount: This diet is 27% protein; suitable for adult dogs that tend to gain weight.

Product Aim: To support the maintenance of adult dogs, while also controlling weight gain as it is low in fat and high in protein instead.

Allergy Benefits: None listed for product but the ingredients used are not known to commonly cause allergic reactions.

Is it a natural product? Yes; the diet does not list any named 'articifial' ingredients.

Does it include any additives? The additives used are added to benefit the dog's health; vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Wind, bad breath, fur & teeth benefits? A healthy coat and skin is aided by omega 3 fatty acids. Fibre and easily digestable rice (7%) in the diet help limit wind. Dry food helps ‘clean' the teeth and avoid bad breath.

Can I only feed this one product? Yes, it is a complete balanced food so no need to feed other food with it, just give fresh clean water in a bowl too.

VetShop.co.uk’s Full View

Pro Plan Light Original Chicken & Rice Dry Dog Food is a complete and balanced diet for adult dogs, made with 14% chicken for quality protein and great taste. It is produced to control weight by limiting the dietry fat percentage and increasing protein instead.

How does it keep my dog fit and healthy?

Weight Control - Contains roughly 45% less fat than other Pro Plan diets to help reduce body weight.
Maintenance - Everything the dog needs to eat to keep healthy is in the diet in all the right amounts.
Skin and Coat - Provides omega 3 fatty acids for healthy skin and a full glossy coat.
Digestion - Contains fibre and rice to aid digestion and avoid stomach upsets.
Joint Health - Includes long chain Omega 3 fatty acids and L-Carnitine for supporting joint health.
Immunity - Vitamins, including E and C, in the diet help aid a healthy immune system.

And, how do I feed it to my dog?

You can just give the dry food straight to your dog in a bowl. Always follow the packet feeding guidelines so that you know how much to feed.

So, Is it a good food to buy?

A great food that can be fed to support your dog's health and weight. The packaging is honest about the ingredients. Feeding method is incredibly easy and the product is overall well priced.

Would it be agreeable with my dog?

Does your dog have bad breath or teeth?

The dry food is made into kibble (small round biscuit like peices) which the dog bites and chews to eat; when this happens the kibble actually helps to keep the teeth clean and remove tartar! So, if your dog has bad breath and teeth this could be helped massively by using a dry feed.

Does your dog have a dull or rough coat?

The diet contains omega 3 fatty acids for added skin and coat nourishment.
