FEEDING WEANING PUPS
Puppies start to nibble on solid foods at 3 - 4 weeks of age. Keep moistened Purina Puppy Chow (three parts kibble to one part water) available to puppies at all times until fully weaned (6 - 8 weeks of age).
FEEDING GROWING PUPS
After weaning, Purina Puppy Chow can be fed moistened or dry at the same time every day - very young puppies three times a day, older puppies twice a day. Use the feeding guidelines shown here, but remember individual needs can vary. Feed to maintain ideal body condition as shown. Slight appetite changes and occasional digestive upsets are normal in puppies. If upsets become severe or linger longer than a day or two, contact your veterinarian.
FEEDING FOR REPRODUCTION
Purina Puppy Chow 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 good body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation.
SWITCHING TO PURINA PUPPY CHOW
When switching to Purina Puppy Chow from another food, please allow 7 - 10 days for the transition. Gradually add more Purina Puppy Chow and less of the previous food to your pet's dish each day until the changeover is complete. 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.

I recently got a puppy and may I say that he loved this food! Even husky who is extremely picky loves it! Also I would like to say thank you for inserting a $1.00 off coupon inside, I will definitely continue to purchase PURINA Puppy Chow!!
I've been using puppy chow for my puppies for the last 33 years. I also feed it to my females before puppies are born and while they are nursing puppies. It is natural for the puppies to start eating from mom's dish. Makes for a natural transition for the puppies.
I've been buying this for all my puppies and am very happy with the results. They grow happy, healthy, and strong. It also sits well with their stomaches. I recommend this product to other dog owners.
I buy Puppy Chow to use on all of my dogs as it does well for the puppies, and it keeps my Senior dogs alert and happy!!!!! My show dogs love it!!
My 7 month old 65 pound Labradoodle absolutely Loves his dog food. He can't wait until his next feeding time. Sometimes I think he likes it better than his treats.
I have been buying this for the last couple of months as we have 3 puppies and they all need extra food. They love it and will often times eat almost too fast ad beg for more. Its easy to use and store so it is convenient when feeding times come. We have 7 adult dogs who eat the regular dog chow and they love it as well and I know all my dogs are getting the best meals I can give them.
I purchased puppy chow complete for my pitbull pups at 5wks. I soaked the kibble in water for 1/2 hr to soften and they absolutely tore it up. All 11 pups love it. I will definitely continue to use and recommend to others. My pups are now 8 wks and still finishing their portions of puppy chow complete.
