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.

Always start my dogs on Purina Puppy Chow

I have always started my dogs off with Purina Puppy Chow and this formula stands up to the task. Over the last 50 years it's been the staple of my families dog/puppy food and this new little girl is no exception. She loves the flavor and texture, if she could shed eat the whole bag in one setting.

Love the high protein content!

We are a German Shepherd family and bought this formula for our newest puppy because of the high protein large active breeds need. He loves the taste and I love the nutrition!

My pups love it !!

I've tried several brands of puppy food from many different price ranges . My girls love this puppy chow , they are both looking great , active , healthy and have normal stool !
They devour it as soon as it hits the bowls, so it taste great to them too. Not usually the situation.

Pup loves it!

Our Vet recommended Large Breed puppy chow for Trigger our Golden Retriever. He didn't mind the switch from regular puppy chow to large breed and is growing each vet visit. We love him and want him to be healthy so Puppy Chow is our choice. I recently went on a medical pet site to just read up on potential issues we may face and saw all the recall dog food, fortunatley I saw nothing for Purina brand and that makes me feel even better for keeping him healthy. Thank you Purina for making a great prodcut and keeping standards to help us have healthy family members as pets.

Purina Puppy Chow

I bought this dog food to see if my picky puppy would eat it. I was pleasantly surprised and shocked to see him lap it up without hesitation. I am glad I decided to try it.
