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.

RECOMMENDED FOR GROWTH

This product is for growth of large breed puppies and maintenance of adult dogs - not for reproducing or lactating females.  If you have a pregnant or nursing female, we recommend Pro Plan Focus Chicken & Rice Formula or Pro Plan Focus Lamb & Rice Formula puppy foods.

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.

Love it

I run 2 rescues and we started feeding about 1 mo ago, after a adopter recommended it. We tried it on our 5 wk old puppies through the adults gradually changing their food over. They all love it, their coats look amazing and we'll we love that it has meat 1st ingredient and no food coloring. We now recommend to all adopters as its the only food we have found with both glucosamine and conjointin.

I had my female lab on this puppy formula until i switched her to adult food. I have never had an issue with her skin, coat, or bowel movements. This food is fantastic.

Excellent results w/ our German Shepard Puppy

Unknown to us when we bought our GSD, he had pnuemonia and almost didn't make it. However, once we got him well he started gaining weight and his energy is all go, all the time. I'm certain that switching him to the Pro Plan- Focus Puppy Large Breed Formula had a lot to do with his recovering so well. His weight is perfect, he doesn't lift his head till the bowl is empty and his coat is beautiful.  We've even switched the cat to Pro Plan because of how well the puppy is doing on it!

Great Puppy food!

We have been feeding our Neapolitan Mastiff puppy the large breed focus pro plan. She has been developing into a very attractive dog. We get compliments on her where ever we go. She loves it! She can't wait until mealtime. She lets us know when it's time to fill her bowl.
