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.


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


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.


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.


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.

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.

My dog loves it!

My dog loves the small bites lamb and rice. I have a large dog ~90 lbs and the size of a small pony (she's all legs). She's a mix dog (guessing yellow lab/greyhound) and her coat is so soft and shiny and I contribute her diet to how she looks. She's a picky girl, I never thought that the brand would make that much of a difference, but I once ran out of food and petsmart was closed and I picked up another bag of food and she refused to eat it. I ended up having to go to petsmart later and donate her old bag to a shelter. She loves her small bites lamb and rice formula!

I raise all my puppy litters on all life stages

All my puppy litters get all life stages as soon as they are weened. I see a great many of other breeders puppies, and they don't feed Pro Plan. I can see the difference in the pups looks and energy level. Mine are always superior! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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.

This dogfood keeps my dog''s coat so shiny!

We've been feeding our young dog's this food for 8 months now and one thing we noticed is how shiny their coats are! They enjoy the food too- of course this matters most!

Good quality ingredients and the dogs love it!

What's not to like? No food is perfect for all dogs, which is why I like Pro Plan. I use 30/20 Performance as the main ration, and drop down (in calories) to this formula for those dogs who gain weight on Performance. Not quite as rich, but has everything they need to thrive.

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.
