Beyond ® Simply 9 Ranch Raised Lamb & Whole Barley Recipe Dry Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 380.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Here we go again! I'm convinced my 2 previous ( deceased, cancer) dogs were sick because of the cheaper, less nutritious food I fed them. Determined not to make the same mistake with my 2 rescues, I went for a food I'd researched and was conveniently located at the groceries I frequent.. The dogs seemed to love it, but without warning or explanation,my stores stopped carrying it. I STILL don't know why, and would like to know. Pet stores and Target aren't easy to get to in my area. Also Beyond had awesome coupons for me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lumiere and Daisy are Thriving on This Food When we adopted then 8 year old Lumiere our 29 lb sheltie in 2013, I researched the foods most appropriate for him and found the Beyond Simply 9 Ranch Raised Lamb & Whole Barley formula. He and our more recently acquired Cairn Terrier Daisy are thriving on this food. They are enthusiastically waiting at meal times for their Kibble. We have been closely monitoring their weight, and after several years we are amazed at how little food it's taking to maintain their weight and keep them healthy. It's somewhat more expensive that some other varieties that we have used in the past however, it's been worth every penny. Our biggest problem is the "Simply 9 Ranch Raised Lamb & Whole Barley formula" is not available at our main food stores, and only limited availability at Pet Smart and Petco. Strangely the most reliable source near us is "Rite Aid" Drug Store and they only carry the 3.5 lb bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a food that sits well on a sensitive tummy My puppy did great for the first couple of weeks that we had her, but was suddenly sick (she was on a different food). For about 6 weeks she was urgently going to the bathroom, was hardly eating, and was not gaining weight- as an 8 pound puppy going to be 35 ish pounds this was very concerning. She was on and off of medicines from her vet and finally they told us that she had a sensitive tummy and we should try other dog foods. We tried a few different options, but they all made her sick and she eventually would quit eating them. We are very grateful that my mom recommended Purina Beyond- she loves the food and finally eats with no gimmicks (no wetting the food, hand feeding her, or spreading it around in rooms to make a game), but best of all, it has made her upset tummy better! She is finally going to the bathroom a normal amount of times, she's more active and playful, is gaining weight, and is able to get her vaccinations that she was behind on due to being sick. We are very happy with Purina Beyond, and would recommend it to anyone with a pup who has a sensitive tummy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our 6 year old Pitbull loves this new food. We also purchased several cans, which she also enjoyed. Unfortunately, the coupon that we received was for cat food and we could not use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dogs like it best True story: my husband and I got several small containers of dry dog food, when we wanted to see "what the dogs" thought. We put small piles of food on the garage floor and let the dogs loose. ALL of the Beyond food was eaten before they even tried any of the other dog foods. All of it. All flavors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food1 I have two very finicky senior dogs that need to be on a wheat free diet. I've tried other brands in the past that they didn't care for. They have chowed right down on this from the first time I gave it to them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gone in 60 Seconds My dog has become a more finicky eater as he gets older. Dry food has not been his go to for a couple of years now, but when I put this in his bowl he ate it as quickly as he does wet food. I have had no issues with him eating at all now. It's a little more expensive than what I'm used to, but worth it when I see his eagerness to eat. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog Loves It! I have a Yorkie and he loves the Lamb and Chicken Beyond. He's 4 years old, but seems to be gaining weight on this. I feed him 1/4 cup am/1/4 cup pm and because he begs I give him about 1/8 cup between meals. 1/2 treat a day. When I changed him to this food he didn't even hesitate. Loved it from first bite.

Feeding Instructions
Adult Dog Feeding Instructions

The recommended feeding amounts indicated are based upon the average nutritional needs of an adult dog with a normal activity level (using a standard 8 oz/250 ml measuring cup, which contains approximately 117 g of Purina Beyond).

Research shows that keeping your dog in ideal body condition, which includes a healthy weight, is very important in helping him live a long, healthy life. Our feeding guidelines are based on an average, normally active, adult dog. Ideal body condition may vary based on your dog's metabolism, breed size, activity level or whether your dog is spayed or neutered.

Start with our recommended amount and monitor your dog’s weight, adjusting the amount if your pet’s weight fluctuates. You should be able to easily feel your dog’s ribs and see an hourglass figure when viewed from above. Monitor your dog’s weight regularly to help impact his lifelong health.

Making the Switch to Beyond

Although you’ll be anxious to see the difference Purina Beyond can make in your dog, please allow 7 - 10 days to ease the transition from your dog's current food. This will help avoid dietary upsets. Each day, simply feed a little less of the previous food and a little more Purina Beyond until you’re feeding Purina Beyond exclusively.

No Supplements Necessary

Purina Beyond provides 100% complete and balanced nutrition for adult dogs. There is no need to add vitamins, minerals or other supplements, unless specifically directed by a veterinarian.

Fresh Water, Proper Diet & Veterinary Care

Be sure to provide fresh water in a clean container for your dog daily. Proper diet, exercise and veterinary care are the best ways to keep your dog healthy. If your dog hasn’t had a check-up in the past year, please make an appointment today.
