Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food but I have been buying your products for Mollie & Sam for a loooong time, they love any of them that I give them, they are healthy and energetic rescue dogs........So imagine my delight when I see that your Beef originals advertised $5.00 savings inside.......but there was nothing in it...hmmmmm I did get 2 $1.00 in the chicken flavor, so I thought that perhaps the savings had missed my bag entirely and perhaps some lucky person had received $10.00 in savings. Not deterred I purchased the beef flavor again which also stated there would be a $5.00 savings inside, yippee! but no again......disappointment reigns in my purse oh dear, did I misunderstand the stated savings?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Beneful I posted on your dog park post on facebook and understand why you took the post down. Please remember that the weirdos come out of the cracks, not just on your post but on news sites and political sites. My rescue lab (tortured beyond belief) has been eating Beneful since I rescued her in 2007. She is now almost 10, acts like a young pup. In fact, sometimes I call my grandchildren to come and play with her because I'm a senior and can't keep up. I feel bad about the comments you got on Facebook, but remember it's the ones looking to blame something for what happens to their dogs who have the biggest complaints. I love Beneful and so does my pup? Teddi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food and great benefits We stocked up on a bunch of bags of this food not too long ago after realizing that our dog absolutely LOVED it and seemed much happier and more energetic! She's generally picky when it comes to dog food, so when she ate her entire bowl right after I scooped the food into it, I knew that this brand was going to be a keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more itching I have 3 dogs,a 10yr old Catahoula pit mix,a 5yr old Catahoula, and a 5yr old Dachshund mix. The oldest one and the Dachshund mix were having allergy issues. Biting and scratching. They had all been on Pedigree all of their lives. I made the switch to Beneful about 6 months ago and the biting and scratching has stopped. My oldest girl seems to have more energy and plays like she did when she was a pup. They all love this food and are very happy as am I. Thanks for making a food that I know is good for them and they really enjoy. I am now a lifelong customer. Keep up the good work! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible do not feed this to your fur babies I bought this for my dog this past week and I will never feed it to him again! If I could give yall 0 stars I would. It has made my dog sick. Throwing up and constipated. When he tried to poop, blood came out. He has never had this problem before. We had just taken him to the vet before I gave him this food and he was very healthy and now he's sick! Do not feed this to your dogs! I'm taking this food back to where I got it and try to get a refund and if not then I'm throwing it away! I will never feed this garbage to my fur baby EVER again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised I received a sample of the Originals with real Beef, and it arrived quite fast! My dog has Diabetes and a sensitive stomach, so my hopes of this food working out could possibly put less of a strain on my wallet. After two days of feeding him the sample, his glucose levels hardly spiked and seemed satisfied and calmer for a longer time (I feed him twice a days with two snacks, and he goes nuts with hunger and starts getting pushy after only two hours!). This may be a good alternative to his usual Hill's PD. Overall, I'm pleasantly surprised by how well this food did, and will try it again in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Long Life of Beneful I have two dogs....Colby is a 15 and a half year old shepard-collie mix and Henley is a 10 year old lab-newfoundland mix. They have both been eating Beneful Originals with Beef their entire lives. They are both past their life expectancy and they are healthy and happy. Thank you Beneful!

Most adult dogs can be fed once daily.  However, when high activity or other factors create a higher feed intake, twice-a-day feeding is recommended.  Dogs should be maintained in ideal body condition and not allowed to become overweight.  The food intake required to maintain ideal body condition will vary, depending on age, activity and environment.  Consequently, the amount of food required for each dog will vary and should be adjusted accordingly.



When switching your dog to Beneful Originals dog food, please allow 7 – 10 days for the transition.  Gradually add more Beneful Originals 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.
