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.
Metabolizable Energy (ME)
I just switched less than a week ago and was attempting to go 50/50 mix to transition. Coco literally ate around the Eukanuba to finish all the Pro Plan, leaving his old brand in the bowl. Not only does he love his food now, his coat already looks healthier and he seems to have more energy.
My little bichon loves her Pro Plan Focus. She is learning when dinner time is coming around and sits at her bowl patiently for me - I think she's training me instead of the other way around.
My 6 month old Maltipoo (Bandit) loves the Focus Puppy Toy Breed Formula. I had a 1/4 teaspoon of NuVet to it and she eats it up. Her stool is always firm. She is a very active house puppy.
We bought this after we got our pug puppy. We used up the food she came with and when it was almost gone we began the switch to pro plan. She seems to like pro plan so much better!
This is the food that I buy to help wean my Toy Poodle and Toy Fox Terrier puppies. I want them to be healthy and playful and they have shiny coats and clear eyes. My dogs are bred to show and they know it :) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I just bought proplan toy breed puppy formula a week ago.The sales lady was so helpful!I have a very picky 21/2lb.4 year old yorkie ,I was so sure would not like this food.He usually will not try anything new (treats,food or table) He loves it.!! If he continues as he is I think for the 1st time ever I will have to stop free feeding!! Amazing!!!
