Feeding Guidelines

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

SWITCHING TO PURINA PUPPY CHOW LARGE BREED FORMULA
When switching to Purina Puppy Chow Large Breed Formula from another food, please allow 7-10 days for the transition. Gradually add more Purina Puppy Chow Large Breed Formula 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.


RECOMMENDED DAILY FEEDING AMOUNTS

Using a standard 8 oz measuring cup.

Overfeeding can be harmful, especially for large breed puppies (those weighing over 50 lbs at maturity). That's why it is crucial that you follow the feeding guidelines shown, check your puppy's weight regularly, and adjust his food intake as necessary to maintain an ideal body condition.

This product is not appropriate for females in stages of gestation and lactation.

Great food for my Golden Retriever

My Golden Retriever loves this food. He has been on this diet for 5 1/2 months and is very healthy - strong bones, thick coat, and very active. Briefly tried the other "premium" brands but came back to Purina as the only premium brand for our puppy since he was not fond of it and it didn't seem to give him the same energy. The value cannot be beat, and Purina has been formulating puppy chow for years. We also prefer Purina since this is the pet chow that is used by the Westminster Kennel Club. We also feed Purina to our 2 older dogs and will continue feeding Purina to our Golden Retriever
