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.

Chose the large breed puppy chow formula in an attempt to give my sweet girl the best start possible on a budget. It's affordable, has/had great reviews, and she puts it away more than a few others that we have tried. She also loves Beneful Puppy.
My baby Jett loves this food. She is a Saint Bernard/Bernese Mountain mix and she is getting huge. I buy this because its so good for her and her bones. I want to make sure I give her what she needs to keep her bones healthy for when she gets older!!
Our vet told us to start feeeing our puppy, puppy large bread dog food. We started her on this and her stomach has handled it well and she has put on healthy weight and remained very active!
After trying many different "Premium" foods my boy Tucker was loosing weight. Ribs where showing past the last two (rule of thumb) and his points (hip joints) where beginning to show. Tucker is a 5.5 month old Black and Tan Coonhound . I scheduled a vet appointment for a week away. During that time I was listening to the Hunting Dog Podcast, Feeding Your Dogs/with Purina's Dr. Brian Zanghi. A light bulb went on and POOF, I thought "I'm taking it old school". After some research I went looking for Purina Puppy Chow Large Bread. Unfortunately it was a hunt as very few places have it on hand. It was worth the hunt however, within two days Tucker thickened up. After a week people at the dog park where asking me what i was doing differently. I told them. Of course some of them turned their nose up. But the sensible ones took notice that the proof is in the pudd'n.
Thanks Purina. You got a fan for life and we are still on our first bag!
My Dogue de Bordeaux, Diesel, came from the breeder with Purina One Large Breed Puppy Chow. He's 2 years old now but I always keep it on hand and put a scoop or two in his Adult Dog Chow for the benefits that will continue to help his large breed bones and joints. I also add a scoop now and then when my aging Plott Hound, Izzy Bug, feeling her joints bones & joints will benefit too. Plus I need to keep her weight maintained & it does the job. My vet had recommended it for her weight issue when I rescued her.
