As always, Opus, great info! Just bumping this up so people will utilize the link if they're using the Purina One brand. We used to feed Jade, Purina One - Adult over 7yrs.
Here is just part of the article, but I would encourage you to read it in it's entirety. Don't be scared, it's not long :)

Whew! Just picked up a 3/5 lb bag for Diego from Publix. Sounded like what the vet wante is him to have. We are OK. Best by date and production codes more current.
He got excited when I brought new bag to laptop..heh. Little piggy.
You are the best Opus. We work hard to keep our kits healthy and on appropriate food for their age and weight. Think I am going to vet soon for a weigh in. He has put on a lot of weight in summer. Also he needs the 2nd part of leukemia and another booster so I was told by vet tech.
