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.

ProPlan the best doh food

I raised rottweilers on proplan performance and had very good success with health, muscle, and brain power. Im raising 2 blue pitbulls using the focus and same thing. Excellent health, steady growth, and so smart. I will always buy ProPlan. Plus I live in St.Louis and buying purina supports local people's jobs.

Ate every bit!

My little Sallie absolutely loved this product. We switched her from the Purina beneful to this without any problems. She would sometimes pick at her food or not eat it immediately, now she eats it as soon as we put it out. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Wouldnt feed my dogs anything else!

I feed the large breed puppy food to all my dogs as soon as i bring them home and then move them to the adult formula once they've matured. They are toned, shiny coats and healthy teeth. They are at an ideal body weight and look amazing. My poodles coats are bright and and my Weimaraners silver coats shine! My dogs love the taste. I will not feed my pets anything else. I Will only feed my puppies the large breed formula and recommend the new owners continue to use this brand. I wish it was a bit lower in price or they sold 50 lb bags.
