Feeding Guidelines

This product is not appropriate for females in stages of gestation and lactation, growing puppies or hardworking dogs.

FEEDING WEANING PUPS
Puppies start to nibble on solid foods at 3-4 weeks of age. Keep moistened Purina Puppy Chow Large Breed Formula (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 Large Breed Formula 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.

SWITCHING TO PURINA PUPPY CHOW LARGE BREED FORMULA
When switching to Purina Puppy Chow Large Breed Formula from another food, please allow 7-10 days for the transition. Gradually add more Purina Puppy Chow Large Breed Formula 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.

Best Puppy Chow for our growing boy!

We have a 9 month old Great Pyrenees puppy and he absolutely loves Purina Puppy Chow. I have purchased the large breed puppy chow in the past for my GSD. Both of our boys not only love the food, but have received great checkups at the vet's office. Nothing but Purina for our boys!

Fantastic!!

A friend recommended this food for our new puppies. I was doubtful at first, but I'm so glad that I got it. My dogs love it and they don't have any problems with their stomachs or coats anymore.

Purina Puppy Chow

I bought this dog food to see if my picky puppy would eat it. I was pleasantly surprised and shocked to see him lap it up without hesitation. I am glad I decided to try it.

I had bought the puppy chow that was smaller pieces but my vet said that since my puppy who was 9 wks old at the time and is a redbone coonhound she needed the large breed formula. That actually is what she had been eating before I brought her home. Her mother was on that the last 4 wks of her pregancy.

My Puppy Loved This

My Malamute loved this food. It was what the breeder started her on and she wanted nothing else. She grew into a happy healthy dog because of this formula.
