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 puppy loves this food and her coat is beautiful. Will stay with this food through adulthood.
My puppy LOVES this food. Overall a good food for a growing and healthy puppy.
My little corgi was on this food and she did great! She loves the food, and she grew at a normal rate as well. Will definitely be using this food again for my next puppy.
My puppy came from Puerto Rico and then lived in a human society kennel for quite some time. He came here and was ALWAYS hungry and now that he's realized that he doesn't have to fight for his food, he seems to really enjoy eating. Instead of literally INHALING his food. I will keep him on this food until we switch him to adult food. :)
I have been using Purina products for years and am a big supporter of the quality and nutritional benefits these products offer. Purina stands by their foods and provides great information on each product they sell, so I am comfortable in knowing the high standards they achieve. I rescue animals, as well as work in veterinary medicine, so I generally have a variety of strays at my house at any given time. I have found this food to be exceptional in providing my puppies with the nutrition they need as they grow. And my dogs LOVE it.
I received my first bags of Focus which by the way I received them the very next day! :) My puppy absolutely loves it after a month of feeding my puppy I can tell on her coat how shinny it is.
I totally trust Purina products. I know the company to have excellent quality assurance and to be a leader in pet nutrition for many decades. I have a large breed puppy and am confident in this diet. I am just finishing the first month and Finn is growing beautifully.
I feed all my puppies this food. It is everything Purina says it is. Absolutely great food, great taste for the pups, essential ingredients and maintains a good weight.
We started our puppy on a grain free brand and then started hearing all the negative press about that particular diet. our vet suggested this brand and she loves it. Tried mixing the 2 formulas for a few days, and she would just pick out the Proplan kibble! No more grain free for us! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I've been feeding my 2 dogs thi bran for 10 yrs n they love it never had any allergies or stomach issues highly recommend this for all dog breeds mine are a bulldog n pug;)
