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.

Puppy loves Purina!

My 5 month old boxer is so excited around meal time and he can't get enough of the Purina Puppy Chow! As soon as he sees me bring that blue bag in after a trip to the grocery store, his little nubby tail starts wagging!!

Nothing but Puppy Chow for our pup!

Our one-year-old puppy loves Purina Puppy Chow, and we wouldn't change a thing. It has all of the nutrition she needs and is made by people who genuinely care about the health, happiness, and well-being of animals. Couldn't ask for a better product to help my growing puppy!

Love Puppy Chow!

We have always used Puppy Chow! Our new puppy was already eating Puppy Chow when she came to live with us so that was a definite plus! We will stay a Purina family throughout her life.

GREAT FOOD FOR A MASTIFF

I have received a coupon for a free bag of puppy chow and I went and asked a store employee if I could get it for a large breed dog and they said it would be fine . I received my puppy from a mastiff breeder and that is the only thing that she feeds her dogs, so I said what the heck lets continue, I took my pup to the vet and he started her on 1/2 puppy chow large breed and 1/2 some regular adult food he said that on mastiffs, to much protein and calcium is very bad for giant breed dogs. They grow fast to there full height and them there bones grow which takes up to 2 years for there bones to fully develop that's the only reason i'm doing this, Other than that I would continue to feed her puppy chow and dog chow she loves the taste of puppy chow. Again thank you Purina for the coupon and some good food

Purina Puppy Chow Healthy Morsels

I have used Purina Puppy Chow Healthy Morsels for the past 8 Years. I raise Labrador Retrievers. I have found the Healthy Morsels to be the better of the 3 Purina Puppy Chows because it softens the best in water and gives the puppies the start they need. Easily digestable, so convenient to buy. Is at any Walmart store. Purina has been a staple in our puppies lives. I have never experienced a problem with the puppy chow. I tell my puppy buyers to get it and with the help of the Puppy Packets I receive from Purina they also get a 2 dollar coupon. All our puppies are given Purina Puppy Chow Healthy Morsels
