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.

Our puppy that eats this is an American Bull Dog. He weighs around 90lbs and is almost 8 months old. He really enjoys this and soon will be eating the adult food.

Boxer Baby LOVES it!

We just got a new puppy. Max is a 7 week old brindle boxer. It has been a long time since we have had a puppy and weren't sure what brand of puppy food to purchase. After reading reviews, we decided to go with Purina Healthy Morsels. He LOVES it! Our older female dog is a bit jealous and tries to sneak in a bite or two when she can.

My hound dogs love this food.

I have been buying this for a year and dogs love it. Keeps their coats soft and shiny. Gives just the right amount of protein to where they have fat but their not fat. Very healthy dogs.
