Feeding Guidelines

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

Puppy chow for Nellie

I have a 5 month old lab and her name is Nellie. She had a brother named Hammer, which made Hammer and Nell. But her brother got ran over by a Frito Lay chip truck and did not make it. But Nellie has loved her puppy chow since day one when she started eating dry food. I had to buy a special bowl that slows her eating down. If not she will gobble it up in seconds. I can tell that the puppy chow has helped her remain healthy and growing strong.

Purina Healthy Morsels Puppy Chow

My puppies absolutely love it! They love the variety of texture and when they are first getting their teeth the softer morsels are easy for them to chew.

Puppy Power

We recently had 5 puppies added to our fur baby family. Now that the puppies are weaned they absolutely love Puppy Chow Tender & Crunchy. They are growing like weeds and are fat balls of energy.
