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.

I Trust It

Both of my dogs started on Nutro and both had terrible diarrhea; all that cleared up when I switched them over to Pro Plan.  I trust Purina!  All my animals for decades have done very well on Pro Plan, and I wouldn't even consider using anything else.

5 Dogs

I've had 5 dogs in my lifetime. All of which have only eaten Pro Plan. The dogs have never had an issue with reactions to the food and since it is free of a bunch of dyes and such it is perfect for them. Their skin and coats have all looked great and their energy levels are awesome as well. Like other dog owners I've never had any of the dogs reject the food. Different flavors help as well. Thanks!

MY BEAUTIFUL COCOA LUNA LOVES PRO PLAN FOR PUPPIES

I slowly switch Cocoa Luna from the food that the breeder was giving her to Pro Plan
Puppy. From the very beginning she ate every little bit faster than a "speeding bullet".
Now she eating only Pro Plan and she loves it. She is gaining weight, has lots of energy and her coat is soft and shinny.
Cocoa Luna is a " Fifth Generation" Chocolate Lab in the family. Her Great-Great Grandfather was my first chocolate lab and he had a lot of skin problems.
My Veterinarian at that time suggested that I switch him to Pro Plan. His skin problems disappeared and he ate nothing but Pro Plan after that....
Thank you Pro Plan for providing my dogs through the years with such a great product.

Nutritious and flavorful!

After switching to Pro Plan I noticed an enjoyment increase in my dogs feeding time. He eats the entire bowl without stopping instead of grazing like he did with the previous food. He is showing great muscle definition and stamina.

Puppy food

Wanted to have a good brand for my large breed puppy so her bones get the formula they need while growing. Do not want problems in her adult years. Will continue with Pro Plan into her adult life.

Great food!

We have been feeding our puppy large breed focus since the day we bright her home, and it is fantastic! She is growing nice and steady and we always get compliments on how shiny and healthy her fur looks. We are very happy with the quality of pro plan focus and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has a large. Feed puppy. Thanks purina!
