We recommend that you keep your dog in ideal body condition and not allow your dog to become overweight.  The exact amount of food your dog requires will need to be adjusted according to age, activity and environment.  But a good place to start is with these guidelines for an average, active, adult dog fed once daily.

FEEDING WEANING PUPS

Start puppies on dry or moistened Pro Plan as early as they begin to nibble at solid foods, generally 3 - 4 weeks of age.

FEEDING GROWING PUPS

Feed pups (to six months of age) all of the moistened Pro Plan they will consume at intervals throughout the day.  If fed dry, Pro Plan may be kept before pups at all times.

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.

We love small bites!

Our 2 yr old shepard/whippet mix loves this food. She is sensitive to kibble size and this is perfect for her. She'll eat it dry or if we mix a little wet food into it too. I've also noticed her nice shiny coat after eating this brand for a while now. I would reccomend it.

great dog food for small mouths

after feeding purina lamb and rice for years, I switched to focus small bites for all ages because my dogs did not like the shreds. Now they gobble the food down . when they get picky I add a teaspoon of proplan canned food.

I have two picky dogs. I have a pekignese who is 8 years old and an Austrailian Shepard who is 1 year old. This is the first dog food that they both love. They both can't get enough. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

my dog loves it

My dog has dry skin so the oil in the rice and lamb keeps her from scratching so much. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

great review

All the dogs I have had through the years have all had pro plan. Now that we have a puppy and an older dog all life stages is really handy, especial since it comes in small breed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Lamb and Rice

My dog loves this food. When I give her other foods, she seems to get an upset stomach.I also get her some of the snacks and she likes them also.

Good Food

After getting my new dog friend two and one half years ago from by breeder he was being fed another brand of food and always had terrible room clearing gas. So I changed to Pro Plan Focus and it was the end of the problem. And after more than two years he just loves it.

Perfect for my Bichon

When we got our puppy over ten years ago, the breeder told us that he's been getting Purina Pro Plan and that I shouldn't change because of all the benefits this food has for him. So we continued feeding him this food and he never has had any issues. Bichon Frise dogs can have stomach issues and have a lot of allergy issues. But since they are the best dogs, in my opinion, to have around children, we bought ours. He hasn't had any allergy problems either and I attribute all of this - and the vet has said so as well - because he continues to love his Pro Plan food. What I also like is the small bites because he is a smaller dog and it's very easy for him to eat. My cousin recently bought a Bichon for her family and I told her about Pro Plan and how it's the best-tolerated food for this breed and she now feeds her dog the same because of my recommendation.
