Purina Beneful Dog Food



 
I got these two bags of trial size Purina Beneful through Vocal Point. Actually, I got one and my daughter got one and she gave me hers because her dog does not like Purina for some reason. These trial sizes were for a new flavor they are coming out with called Healthy Fiesta.

I am writing a review just for the practice, hoping that later I will be able to get more dog related products for my Yorkie, Charlie. He is a very picky eater and we have been through just about everything that Petsmart or my Vet has and he won't hardly eat any of them.

He won't even eat doggie treats! Can you believe that? He won't eat sausage, bacon, cheese, ham, pork or chicken treats. The only treats he will eat are the duck tender jerkies, chicken tender jerkies and the sweet potato french fries (they look just like fries that are orangy).

So, when I opened the bag and he came running and he actually ate two whole handfuls of this dog food! We were both flabbergasted to say the least. But here is the proof:

 
The little rascal! He was trying to get it out of Mike's hands faster than he could tear it open! I am going to have to write Purina and tell them not to ever quit making that flavor because in all the three years of Charlie's life he has turned his nose up at dog food.

My Vet finally had to tell us to boil chicken w/o the skin, so that has been Charlie's food now for almost 3 years except for the jerkies and the sweet potato fries!! What I liked best about this is that it is Vitamin Rich to support overall good health. It has hard chunks and soft chunks mixed together and he likes it like that.

This is what is in this vitamin packed pouch: protein with real chicken to help build strong muscles, wholesome rice packed with carbs for energy, antioxidants like carrots and tomatoes to help support vision and a healthy immune system and lastly Omega rich with avocado to help promote healthy skin and a shiny coat.

I don't know if any of you take advantage of Vocal Point but they send out all kinds of samples and regular size products to their members to try.

I have always just gone on their site and gave them my opinion but when these came in and Charlie took to it so well, I just had to brag a little more. And, like I said, I needed the practice. So, this time, the review was a fun project for me and we had such a good time playing around with Charlie that I won't go into all the history stuff like I normally do for a formal review.

This is really more like a post to let you know if you have a picky eater like Charlie, then you need to try and get some of Purina's Beneful and this flavor is called Healthy Fiesta.

I will give you a few ways to get in touch with them if you want to check out this awesome product. They have a website called www.Beneful.com. They also have a phone number to call customer service at 1-800-236-3385, Monday to Friday from 7am to 7pm.

I can tell you Charlie was really happy because he normally does not sit too well for pictures so for me to get all these wonderful pictures of him told me he really liked the food and wanted more.

I am going to show one more picture and close up shop on this one because I need to get busy with some other reviews.

Besides my husband as far as males go, Charlie is the love of my life and as you can see he gets treated and pampered to no end.

He is going to the Vet on Tuesday for his yearly shots and to get groomed.

His hair for some reason gets puffy like ours would if we had really curly hair like they did in the 70's with the Afro's!

Once he gets groomed then he looks like he lost 10 pounds! People always ask me if I am feeding him too much and I say "no" because actually he only eats one whole meal and then he nibbles a little at dinner. He does not eat breakfast at all. I think he got that from me because I don't eat either. It is usually 2 or even 3:00pm before my stomach settles and I can eat a little bowl of my cheerios.

So, that is his big meal and then he just snacks the rest of the day. Don't forget if you haven't registered with Vocal Point yet, you might want to do that so you can get great products to try also. One time I got a full size jar of Olay's Pro-X deep wrinkle cream which costs like $26 a jar! Everyone, have a great weekend!

What a GREAT review. I do them for practice as well sometimes. If you want to review specific products you should write reviews for them on their sites, where ever you can buy the products, Alexa, etc... a lot of companies will contact the reviewer when they see one written to do reviews and giveaways for them. I have a list of companies under my favorites in a post I wrote yesterday where you can also select products to do reviews for. I have to say I love your disclaimer and I wish mine was more creative.
PS your baby is just adorable. My niece has wanted a Yorkie forever.
I'm looking for your FB, Twitter, and GFC now to follow you.

What a cute doggie! I've been feeding my dog Purina Beneful Original since I got him at 4 months old. I guess I haven't ever changed it because they say to do so you need to gradually add the new food to the old. And I didn't want to risk him hating his food or messing up his digestion. He's always liked it until recently when so we started adding some yogurt and now he loves it again. Stop by my blog sometime if you'd like. :)

Great review! I like Purina products for my dogs too.

It's cool about the Facebook issue you're having. Facebook is stupid! I hate their admin.
