FEEDING WEANING PUPS
Puppies start to nibble on solid foods at 3 - 4 weeks of age. Keep moistened Purina Puppy Chow Natural (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 Natural 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 Natural 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 CHOWWhen switching to Purina Puppy Chow Natural from another food, please allow 7 - 10 days for the transition. Gradually add more Purina Puppy Chow Natural 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.

The Purina puppy chow natural is a really good brand. My dogs really liked the flavor and it seemed to give them a lot more energy. I was using the pedigree puppy and my dogs loved the Purina brand a lot more.
The Purina Puppy Chow Natural was great. My puppy gobbled it up quickly so I am certain she must have loved it. I love the natural ingredients and I have ways purchased the purina brands and will continue to do so.
We were giving the chance to try Purina Puppy Chow Natural and I must say that this dog of areas loved it a lot. He ate it all and you are able to tell that he was much happier. This was good for us for we tried most foods and they just didn't settle well with but this stuff did seem to stay down so I will say that from now on this is what we are going to get for him and nothing else.
