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.

Two male pups born August 28th, 2013, both weighed seventy pounds at four months old when they were neutered, Pyrenese/Anatolian, doing great on Puppy Chow. The only problem is they eat a thirty-two pound bag a week.
all my dogs a great dane lab mix a chiwawa a chiwawa yorkie mix and a cocker spaniel all love puppy chow when my spaniel was pregnant I fed her puppy chow when pups were born she did not look like she just gave birth she was not extremely skinny like a lot of dogs are the pups were extremely healthy I tried other foods and they would not eat them
i have changed to healthy morsels and had to go back to puppy chow because my chihuahuas did not like the healthy morsels they now eat like every two hours on puppy chow
