VetShop.co.uk’s Full View
Pro Plan Sensitive Salmon & Rice Dry Puppy Food is a complete and balanced diet for more-sensitive growing puppies, made with 17% salmon for excellent protein and taste. It is specially formulated to help aid your puppy's sensitivity by added omega 3 fatty acids which reduces skin discomfort and also by using limited sources of protein which aren't known to cause discomfort (salmon).
How does it keep my puppy fit and healthy?
Skin and Coat - Provides essential fatty acids for reducing discomfort and aiding a thick and glossy coat.
Digestion - Contains 17% rice and also limited protein sources for good digestibility and to avoid stomach upsets.
Growth - Has the right amounts of protein, calcium and phosphorus to support growth into adulthood.
And, how do I feed it to my puppy?
You can just give the dry food straight to your puppy in a bowl, but for puppies under 3 months it is best to mix in a little water to make the food moist. Always follow the packet feeding guidelines so that you know how much to feed.
So, Is it a good food to buy?
A quality food that can be fed to support your puppy's health and growth. 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 puppy?
Does your puppy have bad breath or teeth?
The dry food is made into kibble (small round biscuit like peices) which the puppy bites and chews to eat; when this happens the kibble actually helps to keep the teeth clean and remove tartar! So, if your puppy has bad breath and teeth this could be helped massively by using a dry feed.
Does your puppy have a dull or rough coat?
The diet provides essential omega 3 fatty acids for a thicker and more glossy coat. Also in the diet has plenty of vitamin A for further skin and coat nourishment.
Some puppies have a tendency to itch and scratch more than others. And they may experience more dandruff.
Specially formulated by our vets and nutritionists, PURINA® PRO PLAN® with OPTIDERMA provides advanced nutrition that helps support the sensitive skin of puppies
OPTIDERMA includes a specific combination of skin targeting nutrients proven to help support healthy skin and a beautiful coat and selected sources of protein to help reduce possible skin discomfort associated with food sensitivity - helping to give them an amazing start in life.

Great service fast delivery and great value
Great Puppy Food!!
by Kay Cartwright
This puppy food is the best I have ever had in my 23 years as a dog breeder and owner. The puppies thrive on it! Great coats and condition and they always receive brilliant comments from my Vet at thier health check. Couldnt ask for better. I will always use this and send all my puppies off with a 3kg bag so they continue to have a great diet. Also I have no tummy problems that can occour with other brands. Love it!!
Won't Be Changing Meal This Time
by Pamela P Quinn (Mrs)
I started using Pro Plan Sensitive when I bought my first English Toy Terrier around June 08 as this was the food her breeder was using. I have been using it ever since and am very pleased with the results I get with my show Champion adults and puppies. My Miniature Pinschers are also fed on Pro Plan with the same results. PetShopBowl is the best price I have found.
The Only One !!
by debbie smith
this is the only dry dog food that hasn't gone straight through my husky from the age of 3 mnths and believe me we have tried quite a few!!.. He is now seven mnths old and loves his food ... Now we just have t b careful on treats for his sensitive stomach.. And I must mention the price on this website is brilliant !!
I've had my Boxer pup on this from the start he's doing very well on it. He's growing at the rate he should be, he's very healthy and loves it himself. I plan on keeping him on pro plan when he comes off puppy food.<br><br>It's also helped with his skin.
It's Really Helped With Frddies Allergies
I didn't know dogs could have allergies but after the 5th ear infection the vet suggested changing our Rhodesian Ridgebacks diet. It has worked a treat and saved us a fortune in vet bills.
Bought this for my Rhodesian Ridgeback, i only feed fish to my dogs re derivatives. No legs on a fish. Ella seems to like it. Got a good price on 2 bags - under 67 pounds. I usually get fish4dogs but happy to try this and alternate. :-)

thought id get a quality food for my new breed ....
My 2 shar-pei puppy's have been on this food since I had them ,they love it
My Puppy's Favorite
It's one of the best puppy food , my sensitive 3 month husky puppy loves it!
Best Puppy Food
by Jean Cochrane
I have had many puppies and in my opinion this is the best product on the market. You don't have to give so much so it doesn't work out much dearer and the dog grows well and hip displacement doesn't appear to be a problem.
Dogs Love This!
We feed this to our french bulldog puppies, no runs no fuss, they love it....! Does smell a tad fishy, but it is salmon after all! Recommended for tasty meals and solid poos :-)
Not worth the money
by Anna Baker
Not impressed with pro plan. Took my puppy to classes where the trainer was talking to is about what's in dog food & I didn't realise how much rubbish was in this dog food. The %of chicken was next to nothing. & really upset my puppy's system as so many additives. Have now changed to a different type of food & best thing I ever did. People rated this brand with pride but I think it's just rubbish food with a hefty price tag.

Great dog food great price
by Isabella Martin
I have a bichon fraise puppy with a sensitive stomach, this food is fantastic for him. Very happy bichon:) very happy owner
by Mia Clarke
I have a Miniature Schnauzer that is now 10months old. The breeder started him on this food as Schnauzers can have sensitive tummy problems, I have never had a problem so have continued to use it.<br>The next bag will need to be the adult version I hope that this is as successful. It's great having it delivered for free as 14 kg would be a problem. Always timely delivery and at a good price compared to shops.
My Cocker Spaniel pup cant get enough of this

The price point cant be beaten and the added benefit of having it delivered on a regular bases makes life so much easier and i never have to worry about running out.Recoomend the subscription service bottomless bowl
Miracle Food, Must read!
by Sean Wright
I'm not one for reviews, but this product deserves some recognition! Our Cocker Spaniel puppy cost us a fortune in Vet bills with her chronic diarrhoea, tests and treatment. She'd be squirting down the path, down the road, all down steps, in walkways.... it got to the point that for every walk I had to take a baby bag out with me for the kitchen roll and flash spray, oh and baby wipes because it got all over her fur too. It was an AWFUL 6 months. Finally, the results came back: "She has nothing wrong with her. So we recommend putting her on a special diet until she is an adult dog." The food they were on about putting her on would have cost us OVER £100 a month. We loved her so much, but were so so sick and tired of her constant severe diarrhoea everywhere but could NOT afford those vet costs. Well, I did a LOT of research online into foods especially for sensitive tums. Decided upon this. Her little problem was about 70% better within the first week, and 100% completely better just after the second week, and never to return.<br>The added bonus was: Being so RICH in oily fish, her black coat has a high sheen gloss to it now and also her tear staining has been eradicated. She's one year old on 3rd September 14 and I really cannot recommend this food enough if you are having the same problems we had. It's a miracle food !
