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.

THIS PRODUCT IS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR LARGE OR GIANT BREED PUPPIES.

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.

my puppies love it!

I began feeding this to my pregnant girls about a year and one-half ago.  It kept them in good weight while incubating and nursing puppies.  The babies began feeding out of mom's bowl shortly after they open their eyes.

best food for over weight older dogs

We have been using this food since we rescued our dog about three years ago it is the only food we feed both of our rescue dpgs. We tell all of our friends to only buy Pro Plan dog food. It has been the only food we have bought since we rescued our first dog about 17 years ago

Pro Plan for small breeds

My pug has been enjoying Pro Plan for her 8+ years. Whenever I've had the occasion to give her another brand (an emergency) she has eaten it without gusto and with much cajoling.

Small breed dogs need extra special nutrition

A quality kibble for the extra needs of a toy breed such as our Maltese. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Simply the best

I've tried every puppy food from every brand available, and I always come back to Pro Plan Small Breed Puppy Chicken & Rice. The puppies always do the best on it, have great coats, keep good weight, and is easily digested. The small size kibble is great too.
