Using a standard 8oz/250 ml measuring cup which contains approximately 112 g of Pro Plan.

Puppies start to nibble solid foods at 3- 4 weeks of age. Keep moistened Pro Plan available at all times. Allow your puppy to eat at will until fully weaned (6 - 8 weeks). After weaning, Pro Plan can be fed moistened or dry. For best results, develop a regular feeding schedule such as three small meals a day for younger puppies. You can gradually reduce to one feeding in the morning and one in the evening as your puppy ages. The routine should not vary. As puppies near adulthood, their calorie needs may drop, and your puppy may begin leaving some food in the bowl. Don't misinterpret this as an indication of dislike for the food. Instead, begin offering less so your puppy doesn't overeat and stays in ideal body condition.

Nestlé Purina Research indicates that avoiding overfeeding of puppies may help their development. Maintaining ideal body condition is key to encouraging proper growth in all puppies, especially large breeds. The indicated amounts are only a guideline. If your puppy becomes overweight, a reduction of your puppy’s daily food intake may be appropriate. You may wish to consult your veterinarian about a weight control program.

FEEDING FOR REPRODUCTION

Pro Plan 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 ideal body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation.

MAKING THE SWITCH TO PRO PLAN®

Although you'll be anxious to see the difference Pro Plan can make in your dog, please allow 7 - 10 days to ease the transition from your dog’s current food. Each day, simply feed a little less of the previous food and a little more Pro Plan until you're feeding Pro Plan exclusively. 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.

Very happy with this food

Our pup has been on this food since we brought him home from the breeder and he has done fantastic on it. Well balanced and nutritious. I'm happy knowing that he is getting a good quality food that doesn't break the bank.

Their new favorite!

I have tried so many food. From Purina puppy chow, to the high end organic foods. But my yorkies love this food ,more than any other. The pieces are small enough for them, they love the taste, and I can feel good about giving them something with a good meat content.

Kaits Favorite

I received a coupon and cashed it in yesterday. I brought the bag home and my dogs got very excited when I opened it. I filled the bowl and they loved it! Nice sized pieces. Love that chicken was the first ingredient. I have always trusted Purina for my girls. Another home run!! My only complaint would be the packaging..most packaging now is resealable and i find that extremely convenient and it keeps the food fresh

There is no other....l

When we got Dora the Vet recommended Purina Pro Plan Small breed puppy food. Dora will not eat anything but this food! As soon as she sees the dish she is jumping around. Her health is great and I believe it's because of Purina Pro Plan puppy food!! The price is very very reasonable.

Way to go Purina!

I've always used Purina in the past with my large dogs and so it was our go-to brand for our first small puppy!

Totally recommend it!

I used to breed Bichons with Shitzu’s and I was recommended this dog food from a dog breeder I met. After using this brand, and finding no reactions either regarding skin issues, or digestive issues, I was so impressed, that I added it as a stipulation in my 1 year contract that the new owners of a puppy had to feed Proplan for the first year, or it would void my wellness contract. Although there was no way to know, all of my customers never had any issues with the puppies, which I lovingly cared for in my home. In no way was I a “puppy mill!”
I know it’s more expensive, but I think it is quality dog food, and all my puppies were healthy!
