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.
Metabolizable Energy (ME)
All my adult dogs are fed Purina Pro Plan & do quite well on it. As a result I wanted to stick with Purina. I saw that Focus puppy came in lamb & rice so I purchased some and couldn't be happier with the results. The best part is no loose stool, & everyone is growing at at nice controlled weight, which is exactly what you want for a large breed puppy.
I started my German Rottweler pup on the purina lamb and rice 41/2 mths ago and she LOVES IT. Her growth is maximum with a healthy beautiful shiny coat, clear beautiful eyes and enormous ammt of energy.U know its an excellent food when they have one healthy solid stool a day.So its going into her system and not in and out.I get on her beauty and glistening shiny coat all the time and her size amazes people. She is 86 pds and just turned 6 mths oct 8th. Remember always fresh clean water. and lots of excercise, especially working breeds. German Rotties ROCK!!!!!! I always reccomend this high quality kibble. Purina Lamb and Rice for puppies. #1 ingredient is lamb that comes in soft chunks along with tasty healthy hard kibble, good for cleaning tarter.My Sadie-Girl loves PURINA LAMB AND RICE!!!!!!!!!!
I have used a lot of grain free expensive puppy foods, like innova, taste of the wild, solid gold, as well as Iams. I have to say the puppies had really bad diarrahea. Talked to my vet and she recommended pro plan. Puppies stools were amazing.. About three weeks ago and got another puppy and she was fed kirkland Brand food, which is also a premium food. Tried adjusting the puppies to that brand and had issues with that... So I will say I am sold on this lamb and rice and never will switch again...
My breeder and veterinarian recommended Purina Pro Focus lamb and rice for my new puppies. Both dogs love it. They eat three times a day and always cleans their bowls. My vet said Focus was best for my puppies brain development. It must be true because at 10 weeks, we are already learning to sit, down and understand no. We are definitely a Purina Pro family through adulthood.
