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.

all of my life i had a dogs . and all of my dogs been eating pro plan puppy food to adult food . easy to digest, solid stool . shiney coat, strong teeth and bone. can't complain . i wont feed anything but pro plan... my dog loves the food . he start it out with puppy focus... we have gsd.
I bought this a month ago after my puppy had some digestive issues from the expensive food the breeder was using and she loves it. She loves the small bite size and flavor.
I got my lab mix puppy a few weeks ago they had her eating gravy train and she would hardly go to the bathroom and was super rambunctious. The day i started her on proplan focus with lamb and rice her potty schedule was normal and she surprisingly calmed down alot and started learning very fast. Plus she loves the food.
I was very pleased with my new purchase of sensitive stomachs but after several months of use Kerstin has redeveloped his problem of very bad gas. He will run you out of the room. Do you have any suggextions? I thought I had found the answer. Please help.
This was recommended to feed our new Dalmatian puppy by the breeder. And this by far is the best puppy food I have fed to any of my dogs over the years. Its easily digestable and he has had absolutely no problems with any vomiting or diarrhea since we have had him home the first month. We have had problems in the past with puppy stress with past dogs and this hasn't been an issue. Will be switching my adult dogs to Pro Plan as well!
I bought this food for our new English bulldog puppy and he is having no problems switching from hiss old food to his new one.
