Feeding Guidelines

Purina Puppy Chow Tender & Crunchy is formulated to meet the nutritional levels
established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages.

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.

They just LOVE it!

Our mother dog gave us 5 puppies, all female, they got weaned early, so I had to find a puppy food for them to eat, I chose Purina Puppy Chow Healthy Morsels, AND they just love it, I want them to have a fighting chance of survival at the Humane Shelter in Savannah, GA, They R Beautiful, I know that they will NOT be there very long! :)

My dog love this dog food!

Years ago I had 2 dogs and was purchasing another brand of dog food (Kibbles and Bits) however I noticed 1 of my dogs was always leaving a mess for me to clean up, for whatever reason she could not hold it down. We have since switched to Purina and have had no problems: sure saves me a lot of time, money and cleaning products. We love Purina! Even though she is a big girl now (4 years) we still give her the puppy chow because of the littler pieces & no she is not fat, she's perfect, ask her vet!

Dogs love it!

Have a couple of Yorkies that I breed and I keep them on puppy chow for the extra nutrition. They are very picky eaters, but they love this!

My shih tzus love!!!

I have raised shih tzus for 15 years and everyone of them is still on Healthy Morsels Puppy Chow nd as healthy as can be! We have tried to switch them to regular dog chow but with them being so little they prefer the smaller pieces in the Puppy Chow! Thanks for helping me raise such healthy babies and adults!!!

Awesome puppy food!

I would not feed my puppies anything else.
They love the taste and I am happy to feed it to them, because it is healthy for them.
I keep momma dogs, while nursing, on nothing but, puppy chow, also!
Thank you for a great product.

My Puppies Love it

I have had my 2 puppies on the Purina Puppy Chow since I got them at 12 weeks old and they love it. Not only do they love it but they look fantastic and are in very good health.
