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.

Pup loves it!

Our Vet recommended Large Breed puppy chow for Trigger our Golden Retriever. He didn't mind the switch from regular puppy chow to large breed and is growing each vet visit. We love him and want him to be healthy so Puppy Chow is our choice. I recently went on a medical pet site to just read up on potential issues we may face and saw all the recall dog food, fortunatley I saw nothing for Purina brand and that makes me feel even better for keeping him healthy. Thank you Purina for making a great prodcut and keeping standards to help us have healthy family members as pets.

2 ETERNAL PUPPIES

BOTH MY DOGS LOVE PUPPY CHOW ALTHOUGH THEY'VE NOT BEEN PUPPIES FOR 2-3 YEARS. I BUY PURINA DOG CHOW REGULAR BUT WHENEVER I REMEMBER TO PICK UP A BAG OF THE PUPPY CHOW THEY GO NUTS OVER IT. I'M SURE IT'S NOT HURTING THEM SO I'LL CONTINUE BUYING THE PUPPY CHOW OFF & ON WHEN I REMEMBER.
