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.

Very pleased!

I have a Labrador and she is now 15 weeks old. I am amazed with how well Beneful has ben for her! Her coat is smooth, her teeth look great, she doesn't seem to have bloating like she did on the puppy food she came with. I would recommend this product for sure! The vet is also very pleased with her growth.

Great Stuff!!!!

I have a 12 week old King Charles Spaniel, who was not eating the food the breeder sent with him. I did a little research and decided to give Beneful Puppy Food a try. He absolutely loves it. His digestive system is back in balance and he is full of energy. This is a great dry puppy food.

Yummy!

My lab recently just had ten puppies. They are only four weeks old and they hit the ground running for the food bowl whenever they see me pouring Beneful hard puppy food! They pig out on this food! Great brand of dog food!

Awesome Food

My puppy loves this food! I started feeding her a little bit at a time, but she kept wanting more. I then started giving her more and now she barely lets me pour it into her bowl because she always sticks her head in the bag.

Great value, solved tummy troubles!

We adopted a boxer/cane corso at 8 wks old and a golden retriever/lab at 6 months old within two days of each other... We have had them for about two months now, and they have been on Beneful puppy food for about two weeks... Both pups were on Pedigree puppy food when we got them, and they both had bloating and very stinky gas following every meal, so I had to do something about their diets! We have four children, so buying expensive, vets office pet food was not an option. I found Beneful at our local grocery store priced within a dollar or two if their other food, so decided to try it, and what a difference! Their costs are now sleek and shiny and we no longer have fur all over everything, they are excited for meal times, and the gas and bloating problem is virtually GONE! Thank you for making a high quality, affordable food for our newest family members!
