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.

Pro Plan Puppy-Focus

We had a dog in the rescue that was skin and bones. He was technically a puppy, but we put him on 1/2 Pro Plan Puppy to bulk him up along with 1/2 adult.
Today he looks fabulous! Thank you Pro Plan Puppy. Just the right weight gained.

Correct Protein for Puppies

I train dogs for the theater. I use Pro Plan for the correct growth of my dogs so I don't have to worry about bone or hip issues.

Great food

We fed our old dog Proplan and he was always very happy and lived a long life. Our new puppy has been on it since she came home and her breeder even used it before she became ours. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

My Puppy Loves it

My puppy can't wait for the next meal. I am only feeding her what is recommended on the package & she eats it all up. Her body is in perfect shape (according to the vet) & she is very active & healthy, which is key to me. Awesome product.

Happy Terrier pup

After long conversations with my vet, I switched my puppy to the ProPlan small breed puppy formula. She is super happy, great energy and a great coat. Not stomach issues at all.

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.

Excellent Kibble for Optimum Development

We've used ProPlan FOCUS for GSD puppies & our extremely finicky Beagle/English Setter mixed breed. The results and development we've seen for our German Shepherd pups fed this kibble exceed any other puppy food we've ever used!
