Feeding Guidelines: 

Recommended Daily Feeding Amounts: 

Using a standard 8 oz (250 ml) measuring cup

Feeding Adult Dogs: The recommended feeding amounts are based on using a standard 8 oz/250 ml measuring cup which contains approximately 97 g of Purina Beneful Healthy Weight. Most adult dogs can be fed once daily.  However, it may be beneficial to divide the recommended daily amounts into two meals.  The food intake required to maintain ideal body condition will vary depending on age, activity and environment, and should be adjusted accordingly.

Feeding Tips: 

  • When switching your dog to Beneful Healthy Weight dog food, please allow 7 - 10 days for the transition.  Gradually add more Beneful Healthy Weight and less of the previous food to your dog's dish each day until the changeover is complete.  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.

Bought a bag of this for my furbabies because they needed to lose weight and they would scarf it down like nobody’s business BUT it wound up making them extremely sick. At first I thought my chihuahua was sick because he likes to eat random things outside (it’s hard to keep them from eating everything) but then one morning I woke up to find their doggie room floor with a rather large amount of vomit! I then noticed that my chihuahua was sluggish and wouldn’t drink anything so when I took him to the vet, the doctor told me the culprit was the food and sure enough once I started feeding them a different kind of food, the vomiting stopped and my chihuahua started eating again!
If you live your four legged family members, DO NOT feed them this junk!

I get this food for my dogs for many reasons some of them are that it contains real chicken first and its also weight control which i need as one of my two poms are rather heavy its a good food they love it and i would recommend it to others for their dogs too.

So, our pitbull Blu, she loves this Putin’s Beneful healthy weight dog food! We first started out with the puppy food mix and as she has gotten older, we switched to the healthy weight type. She can down a bowl with a quickness too! I have to say out of all the dry dog foods, this is by far her favorite dry dog food. She gets lucky sometimes and we give her chicken, but for the most part she eats this stuff almost every single day. I love the price and I love that she loves it too! Would definitely recommend for all growing pups out there!!

So my local vet did recommend this to me for cost and for how much dogs eat. Beneful has more benefits than regular dog food to keep dogs healthy and strong. You can get this at Walmart and it doesn't have a strong scent to it. The bag is heavy duty and has a great ability of not breaking when my dog digs it. I do recommend if you have older animals or smaller animals because it is easier for them to chew.

To Start off Kibble is not great to feed any dog. Its just an alternative.
My dog got sick off of beneful when it was recalled and almost killed him.
The Vet told me because he was eating this food he was getting stones and all that junk.
Because of this food i almost lost one of my best friends and a family member.
It would make him vomit. Eat grass. And then he got odd behaviors before leading him being in the hospital for not pooping and peeing.

To say the least i wont be buying Beneful any sooner

This is the brand that Oso loves to eat. We’ve tried others but this one is the only one he seems to eat. He loves the chicken flavor one the best. The prices are great and the most important thing is that Oso is a happy, and healthy camper 🐼 #furryfriend #dogmom #ilovemypet #beneful

Our fur baby loves this dog food. We have tried other brands, even the pricey ones and she refuses to eat anything else but, her beneful food. It is a really inexpensive food that she loves. She also likes to play with it before she eats it. She has ate this brand since she was a baby and we haven't had any issues.

I bought this for my dog after being an avid beneful dog food purchaser. My store was sold out of the regular beneful variety I normally buy, so I picked up the healthy weight version thinking it would be okay. This particular variety wreaked havok on my dog. My dog developed a yeast infection in his ears, an eye infection and was throwing up. I did not even think that the food was the culprit after feeding him other beneful varieties for months without issues. Do not purchase this! I switched my dog over to a more expensive brand that was recommended to me and overnight he was already a new dog. I will never buy this brand again.

A lot of dog foods make my dog sluggish sounds weird but nothing wrong with him. The vet said change up the food. Does this make dogs sluggish?

Has anyone fed this to a puppy? Any implications with starting a puppy on this or should I go specifically buy puppy food?
