Feeding Guidelines

Amounts are recommended for an average puppy with normal activity. Remember food intake requirements vary depending on age, activity and environment, and should be adjusted accordingly.

FEEDING WEANING PUPS
Puppies start to nibble on solid foods at 3 - 4 weeks of age. Keep moistened Purina Puppy Chow (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, Purina Puppy Chow 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
Purina Puppy Chow 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.

SWITCHING TO PURINA PUPPY CHOW
When switching to Purina Puppy Chow from another food, please allow 7 - 10 days for the transition. Gradually add more Purina Puppy Chow and less of the previous food to your pet'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.

German Shepherd breeder

I breed GSD and i fed purina dog chow/puppy chow from the start, then i switched to a so called better food well let me say all my dogs have lost weight to the point one of my females was extremely skinny you could see her ribs and hip bones, i started her on the puppy chow just 3 days ago twice a day and she already looks better. and i put all the others back on the dog chow complete. I will never feed or recommend any other food as long as own dogs. purina dog chow is the food i will ever feed my dogs they have proven to me that their food is the best for my babies. and i wish i had never stopped feeding it, but they are on their way to being healthy once again. Thanks Purina for making a great dog food.

The small size is easy for my small dogs to eat.

This product is great for all small breed dogs. I find that my dogs love the taste and ease of eating it.

Great Product!

I just adopted an 8-week old Boxador (1/2 boxer 1/2 lab). We switched her to Puppy Chow complete. What a difference in her appetite. She can hardly wait to eat!

Great puppy food!!!

I have a 31/2 month old Blue American Razor's Edge puppy named Bruno. I had to take him at 29 days old because the mom no longer wanted to feed them. They were getting too big and hurting her at feeding time. I've been feeding him Purina Puppy Chow since I got him. He has progressed super nicely! He doubled in weight the first three weeks between vet visits. The first visit he weighed 6.2lbs. for his second visit and second set of shot he went from 6.2 to 12.4lbs. The vet even told me he was in great health. I totally recommend Puppy Chow!

My little guy loves it

The breeder we bought our beautiful puppy from fed and recommended puppy chow and so did our vet so we stayed with it. He loves dinner time, gobbles it up.

We love Puppy Chow results!

We love how puppy chow nutrient works for our German Shepherd puppy. Her coat is so shiny and we get compliments all the time on how pretty it is as well as how healthy she is. We actually take her monthly age progression pictures laying on top of her new bag of food!
