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.

My Brittany puppies THRIVE on this product

My vet continues to marvel at the health and vigor of my puppies, when I take my litters in for their exams. I just thought my puppies were "normal" but the vet assures me that of all the litters he sees none are doing as well as ours, on the Pro Plan® - Focus Puppy Chicken & Rice Formula. He made it a point to ask about our feed, so he can recommend it to other breeders. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Awesome food

Our rescue recently took in a tiny puppy that was burned over 90% of his body. He was terrified and just not interested in food. The shelter had him on adult food to try to get something in him and I picked up a bag of Pro Plan Focus puppy chicken and rice. He sniffed and showed some interest. Then I started to hand feed him and he fell in love. He just needed some patience and reassurance food was good. Now he runs to his bowl for his feeding. His hair is growing in nicely, even in spots we didn't think he would have hair. He is playful and romping and gaining weight like he should. We are moving him to a foster home and providing this food to his foster to keep him going. THANK YOU for the great product and helping our burn survivor.

Puppy loves it

My 4 month old Goldendoodle has done very well on Purina Proplan. I was skeptical because my cats did not but I'm glad I gave it another try. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Healthy Pups and Great results

I feed this to Pembroke Welsh CORGI girl about 15 days before she whelps, after whelping and also start pups on it to ensure all are the healthiest they can be. As a breeder, I recommend this to my puppy parents. Shiney healthy coats, small firm low odor stool, all around very healthy puppies. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Finnicky Eater

I was having a heck of a time finding a food that our puppy would eat without having to add things to it. I picked some of this up today and he gobbled it right down. His other food I had been feeding him it would take him all day to eat it and sometimes he would not eat it at all, let alone all that I gave him like he did with the Pro Plan.
