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.

My Boxador is a very picky eater. We tried many different name brands and nothing worked. AS soon as we brough home Purina Puppy chow, it was like we couldn't keep the food in the bowl. He loves it and we don't have to worry if he's eating enough! Thanks Purina!!!!
We love the puppy chow blend for our boxerpit, and she shows us she loves it just as much,she can literally chow down her food in less than 30 seconds. She is provided all that she needs with this blend. Choosing the right dog food for a pup is vital, she has healthy consistent bowel movements with Purina Puppy chow. Couldnt be happier!
We use Purina Puppy Chow for our English Bulldog puppy and Purina Little Bites for our older dog Trixie and they both love it!! We wouldn't use any other dog food. Thanks Purina!!!

They love it and will not eat anything else. i get them healthy nutrition puppy chow. i figured when my female yorkie was pregnant and the vet said give her puppy chow it would be better for her at that time so ive continued to give them it. They have been very healthy dogs. thanks purina!
