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.
RECOMMENDED DAILY FEEDING AMOUNTS
Using a standard 8 oz measuring cup.

I've tried several brands of puppy food from many different price ranges . My girls love this puppy chow , they are both looking great , active , healthy and have normal stool !
They devour it as soon as it hits the bowls, so it taste great to them too. Not usually the situation.
I bought this food cuz I was having problems with my puppies stomach ever since we got this everything has been great!!! He's gaining weight like he's supposed to be 30lbs at 4 months!!! Thank you so much!!
We have a black lab we started on puppy chow for large breeds 6 years ago. When he was old enough we changed to adult large breed Purina! We have never had one issue with his health or anything else. He is a beautiful and very strong dog! We only use Purina dog treats!
My new pup is so pupular in the neighborhood already and he is thriving on the large breed puppy chow, which is good for me and for him because the price is right and the nutrients he is getting for the future makes us both happy.
