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.

German Shorthaired Pointer Approved!

I have a 9 month old German Shorthaired Pointer. He absolutely loves Purina Pro Plan puppy food! It was recommend to me from the time we got him. I cannot get his dog dish on the ground fast enough for him, he digs right in! Our vet is very happy with him and how well he is growing. His coat is nice and shiny and he is full of energy. I am very pleased with Purina Pro Plan Large Breed.

Best Puppy Food EVER!!!

Late December 2013 we added a new Black Lab to our family after putting down our Yellow Lab of 13 years in July 2013.  We tried many different puppy foods with our first Lab and always struggled with her liking the food.  The breeder STRONGLY recommended Pro Plan Focus for Puppies.  We have kept her on this since we got her and she LOVES it!  Compliments come left and right about her shiny and soft coat.  I wish I would have discovered this years ago, but I am so happy and proud to use this product.  Our Vet stands by this product as well and encouraged us to keep her on it as well.   THANKS PURINA!!!!

Excellent Nutrition!

The worlds TOP show dogs are fed this food and they do phenomenal on this - that is fact. I don't understand how anyone who hasn't at least tried the product can give it any rating, many people are so ignorant about animal health and nutrition and believe anything on the internet. By-products are nutritious and important for the proper cell function of canines; dogs love eating heart, liver, spleen, etc (which are all by-products). This is where the nutrition is, not in a low calorie chicken breast. I love Proplan products and will continue to feed them to my dogs.

Great Puppy Food!

The breeder we purchased our Yellow Lab from recommended this so we decided to keep her on it...SO GLAD WE DID! She's growing nicely, has a great coat and loves the food. At her 12 week check up, she'd put on 10 lbs and the vet says she's in perfect shape! Definitely think this is a great product and will keep her on Pro Plan always. (Oh...and I mix some of the canned food with kibble for her Kong...way better than any of the other 'goop' you can put in there & it doesn't upset her tummy.)

My puppy is loving life!

This brand was recommended by a family member. We adopted a lab two months ago and since he was a shelter dog, he was so scrawny and his coat was dull. Now, he is a hyper 4 month old chocolate lab who is strong, rambuctious, and has a glossy coat. We know he is thriving because of feeding him the ProPlan brand.

dog does well on it

I switched my GSD onto pro-plan after having trouble with all supposedly better brand foods.  He did the best on the sensitive skin and stomach.  My only regret was not doing it earlier.  After he passed my new dog is on is the puppy formula.  Happy and healthy.
