Puppies start to nibble solid foods at 3 - 4 weeks of age.  Keep moistened Pro Plan available at all times.  Allow your puppy to eat at will until fully weaned (6 - 8 weeks).  After weaning, Pro Plan can be fed moistened or dry.  For best results, develop a regular feeding schedule such as three small meals a day for younger puppies.  You can gradually reduce to one feeding in the morning and one in the evening as your puppy ages.  The routine should not vary.  As puppies near adulthood, their calorie needs may drop, and your puppy may begin leaving some food in the bowl.  Don't misinterpret this as an indication of dislike for the food.  Instead, begin offering less so your puppy doesn't overeat and stays in ideal body condition.

Nestlé Purina Research indicates that avoiding overfeeding of puppies may help their development.  Maintaining ideal body condition is key to encouraging proper growth in all puppies, especially large breeds.  The indicated amounts are only a guideline.  If your puppy becomes overweight, a reduction of your puppy’s daily food intake may be appropriate.  You may wish to consult your veterinarian about a weight control program.

FEEDING FOR REPRODUCTION

Pro Plan 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 ideal body condition.  Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation.

MAKING THE SWITCH TO PRO PLAN

Although you'll be anxious to see the difference Pro Plan can make in your dog, please allow 7 - 10 days to ease the transition from your dog’s current food.  Each day, simply feed a little less of the previous food and a little more Pro Plan until you're feeding Pro Plan exclusively.  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.

Great Puppy Food

I got a new puppy (lab) back in March and the breeder recommended Pro Plan Focus Puppy Chicken & Rice. My puppy loves this food and has never gotten sick. The first few ingrediance are all protein, which I have read it a lot better then corn and/or wheat ingredients. My puppy is 4 months now and is growing fast. His coat is shinny and the vet asks us every time what we do (I think it's the food). I am very pleased with Pro Plan's product and plan to stay with their brand.

Great Dog Food!

I have 5 dogs, 3 chihuahuas and 2 Golden Retrievers I feed them proplan and a month ago I changed to dog chow since the vet told me it was the same quality and it happens to be wrong! The dogs ate dog chow but once and change food again the seem to be healthier and happier.

Awesome Food

We just got an American Bulldog Pit Mix puppy with severe skin allergies, we also have a dachshund mix puppy who we were feeding Iams food, our boy had dry thick flakey patches on his body and around his eye.  We were recommended to try the Pro Plan and now I can say our puppy skin is healthy and his eye is free and clear and he loves it [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great food!

I have a 4 1/2 month old havanese and my vet recommended this brand.  He loves it and has a beautiful coat.  His stools are good, not runny like some foods cause.  He licks his bowl every time he finishes it wanting more.  My 9 year old shitzu eats Pro Plan for sensitive stomachs and has never had a problem with it.

Wonderful product

I've worked in veterinary medicine for over a decade. There's been many different "fads" that have come and gone but Purina Pro Plan has remainded true through every one. I have personally seen the difference this food makes in the lives of cats and dogs. I have 4 cats that will never eat anything else. They're coats are shiny and full and the litter boxes are a breeze to clean!
I'm now the proud mother of a 4 month old german shepherd/chocolate lab mix who has eaten the chicken and rice since I brought her home. Thanks for the excellent products Purina! Keep up the good work!

Best puppy food!!

We recently brought in a boxer puppy who had runny stool and was lethargic.. After switching foods a couple of times we found Pro Plan to be the best pick! He now has tons of energy, his stool is solid, and his coat is beautiful! Great puppy food. = )
