Purina® Beneful® Originals with Real Beef Dog Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 134.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was well received by our four legged friend! After picking up our bag of Purina Beneful with real beef, it was home to find out our German Shepherds reaction. We had run out of food and we have been trying to find a product that will not irritate his skin and cause him to itch so much. He definitely knew that was a new food because he gave it the old sniff test! His review was positive, he ate it up without hesitation after the first bite. There were no issues with him eating the food daily until we ran out. It will be hard to comment on whether the food is better for his sensitive skin because we have just been through the one bag, however we have since purchased a second bag and will continue to monitor his eating habits.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fussy, but even Charlie likes it. My 3 year old Cockapoo is usually very fussy about what she eats and has a sensitive stomach as well. If something doesn't agree with her she has vomiting and diarrhea. I slowly started her on Purina Beneful with Teal Beef to see how she would tolerate it and she liked it right away. She would only eat the beef portions and refused to eat the parts that looked like they may contain the vegetables. She did not experience and digestive upset during the period of eating this new product. I would highly recommend this product for anyone that has a dog and wants to feed them a very healthy meal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Good Option if You Buy Store Brand Dog Food First off my dog had no issues eating it. He gobbled every morsel down and didn't hesitate from the initial bowl where I started integrating with his regular dog food. As far as store brands go it is a higher quality food but compared to his regular specialty food I've been feeding him recently he tends to be hungry faster and require more of the Beneful than his regular food. The downside to that being that I have to clean up more of his "business" in the yard. If I was on a strict budget and had to feed a store brand/bought food I would choose this one hands down though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty and healthy I would like to thank Purina for the chance to try their Beneful with real Beef Dog Food, the bag is colourful and catches the human's eye, the dog food shapes provide interest and contrast, not sure if that makes my dog want to eat it or not but she liked it for her own reasons. The bag was a bit small and my dog is quite large so by the time I transitioned her to the new food and back to her old food we only had a couple days of exclusively eating the Beneful, she's always up for a change and a new variety of food. The ingredient list is quite long but most of ingredients are things I recognize, it contains extra vitamins and minerals to help keep my dog healthy. Overall it is a good healthy food that my dog enjoyed trying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dogs favourite food We mix beneful in with his dental food and our dog loves it. He will dig through the bowl until he has found every single piece and then look up at us asking for more. When we first gave him the beneful he didn't eat his other food for the first few days - we only started him on the adult dental food the week before. The only "issue" we have had is this is the only food that we have switched him to that make him have smelly gas, and we have switched his food over 3 times prior to adding the beneful to he's diet. Luckily the gas only lasted about 3 or 4 days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features. Bag is easy to spot. I have 5 adult small breed females that love beneful. They often are scratching at their dishes before it's mealtime Lol. The vet always tells me that my dogs and litters are strong and healthy. :) I always recommend your brand to people purchasing my pups. I alternate between the different flavours cuz they love them all. I've tried to add photos but I just get error, so I don't have pics attached. I

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arf Arf, Speaking for Hugo. Hugo loves the food but unfortunately, he isn't talking about it much right now. When he sees the bag of Beneful, up he jumps like a puppy heading for the food dish. I find this odd because any other time he is laying on his back sleeping and /or breaking wind. He is extremely lethargic because of his size, however he is losing some weight eating this food and he actually gets up the energy sometimes to sit up and bark. Therefore, the arf, arf when he sees Beneful and thats enough talk for me.He's too shy for pics at the moment. Jeff

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog loved it I have an old, fat beagle who, while she'll eat anything, still has distinctive preferences when it comes to food. She not only gobbled the Beneful Originals up, but begged for more. And more. I liked the fact that beef is the first ingredient and, although it has some grain filler (which I feel is totally unnecessary in a dog food, since they are carnivores), there wasn't as much as with other dry dog foods. The dog doesn't care, but it made ME feel better about feeding the Beneful Originals to her than other grain-heavy dry foods.

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.
