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.

Contains a source of live (viable) naturally occurring microorganisms.

Provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily.

For your pet's health, see your veterinarian regularly.

Pro plan

We rescued our girl. We started her on the special Purina. Then we gradually moved her to her food now. She loves Purina chicken and rice or lamb and rice.

New bag New Feeding Amount much less... why?

I have the old bag and the new bag... There is no alert that the feeding amounts have changed. Thank goodness I looked because the old bag we would feed 6 cups per day. The new bag calls for 3-4 cups per day for
Same age puppy. Meanwhile the calorie content is practically identical. So why now feed so much less amount and therefore calories in a day for the “Giant Breed” category and no warning of such a change in the packaging for consumers to be aware.
