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.


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 to 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.

Quality dog food for hunting dogs

Rennie is a 12 year 50 pound field bread female Gordon Setter. She is very active and I still hunt over her. We have had very little health issues with here over the past years. I would have to believe that feeding Rennie Purina Pro Plan has had something to do with this....Thanks

Excellent Foods

We’ve been successfully feeding ProPlan foods to our Labrador Retrievers for over 30 years. They are all weaned on ProPlan Puppy Chicken and Rice. At 1 year they are switched to Sport 26/16 for the rest of their lives.
4 years ago we started showing and breeding Tibetan Spaniels. They eat ProPlan Small Breed Chicken and Rice.

Used for years

We have used Pro Plan for 25 years. It was recommended to us by the breeder of our first Cardigan. We used Chicken and rice prior to the present formula.

Best food at any price

I transitioned to ProPlan about 16 years ago after becoming frustrated with "premium" boutique brands' inconsistency in distribution and ingredient tampering/spoilage. I had heard good things about ProPlan, but I wasn't completely convinced. After 2 months on ProPlan, my dogs never looked better, never performed better, and their overall health and durability rose to a level that I had never considered possible. Not only did I begin to win more with my dogs in the show ring (including National & Regional Specialty wins and all-breed Best in Show wins) but from a very practical standpoint, let me share with you this case in point: Just this past year I lost a beloved girl who was my first cradle-to-grave on ProPlan; When I reviewed and closed her vet records at the clinic, we were all astonished that this girl had NEVER been to the vet for ANY ailment in her ENTIRE life. You read that right: Never a case of upset stomach, never a hot spot, never any G.I. issues, no skin or gland issues. Her entire file was only 2 pages noting routine vaccines and her spay - that.was.it!  I think over the course of nearly 16 years that I never spent an extra nickel at the vet much less the WORRY of an ailment of this girl that I loved so much, and I give much of the credit to ProPlan. My younger dogs continue to be in this league of durability, so I wouldn't dream of changing dog foods; Why would I?
