The recommended feeding amounts are based on using a standard 8 oz/250 ml measuring cup which contains approximately 97 g of Purina Beneful Healthy Puppy.

FEEDING WEANING PUPS
Puppies start to nibble on solid foods at 3 - 4 weeks of age. Keep moistened Beneful Healthy Puppy (three parts kibble to one part water) available to puppies at all times until fully weaned (6 - 8 weeks of age).

FEEDING GROWING PUPS
After weaning, Beneful Healthy Puppy can be fed moistened or dry at the same time every day - very young puppies three times a day, older puppies twice a day. Use the feeding guidelines shown here, but remember individual needs can vary. Feed to maintain ideal body condition as shown. Slight appetite changes and occasional digestive upsets are normal in puppies. If upsets become severe or linger longer than a day or two, contact your veterinarian.

FEEDING FOR REPRODUCTION
Beneful Healthy Puppy provides the extra nutrition needed by reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation. Food consumption may vary during gestation, so feed the amount needed to maintain the pregnant female's good body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation.

FEEDING TIP
When switching your dog to Beneful Healthy Puppy, please allow 7 - 10 days for the transition. Gradually add more Beneful Healthy Puppy 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.

Puppies grew like crazy

I adopted a rather small Australian shepherd from the shelter, pregnant too. I started her off on Beneful puppy food and when she had her puppies, I kept her on puppy food till she stopped nursing them. She stayed healthy and maintained her weight while the puppies put on wonderful growth. At 10 weeks old the smallest is 18 pounds and the largest is 22 pounds and Dusty, Mom, is maintaining her 32 pounds on Beneful for her age group, our other dogs eat beneful too.

Our Puppy Is Finally ENJOYING Her Food

We were very saddened to find out that our lab/boxer puppy wasn't liking ANY of the foods that we would give her. Friends and family would say, "when she gets hungry enough she'll eat it!" But we love our puppy, and we wanted her to 'enjoy' what she ate. We then tried Beneful for puppies, and we blended in about 1/3 of a can of Iams Lamb/Rice ground meat food. She will show some hesitancy, because she would rather eat what we are...BUT, we were so excited to see her eating it, right down to the bottom of the bowl - every time! Thank you SO MUCH for making Beneful for puppies. It has relieved us of so much anxiety over her eating issues. Please never change it.

Finally, he's excited to eat!

My golden retriever would rather eat wood than eat many of the expensive, high end 'natural' brands and frankly, I was getting frustrated paying $60 for 25-30# of dog food that he didn't LOVE (didn't even like). After a couple of friends recommending Beneful, I gave in and bought it - and am I ever glad I did! Charlie is now excited to eat, and I get to work on his 'sit-stay' commands while I dish it up for him. He's happy - and that makes me happy!

Wonderful!

I have three dogs ages from 2 months old to 10 years old.They have been eating Beneful ever since we have had them.I have tried other foods,but either they wouldn't eat them or our Westie/Maltese would smell like fish!Needless to say I truly recommend Beneful! Keep up the good work,and please don't change a thing!

Felix enjoys his food more than his treats!

We recently adopted a lab/shepherd/Russell mix. It is my first dog, so I was a bit overwhelmed when choosing a puppy food. I chose Beneful due to the size of the pieces and the ingredients. Also, the price was very fair. I'm so happy I did! Felix inhales his food, and prefers it over treats. We are using a piece of good as a reward for potty training. It's going very well!
