PUPPY FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS
These amounts of PURINA PUPPY CHOW puppy food are recommended for an average puppy with a normal activity level. Remember food intake requirements vary depending on age, activity and environment, and should be adjusted accordingly.
FEEDING WEANING PUPS
Puppies start to nibble on solid foods at 3 to 4 weeks of age. Keep moistened PURINA PUPPY CHOW (three parts kibble to one part water) available to puppies at all times until fully weaned (6 to 8 weeks of age).
FEEDING GROWING PUPS
After weaning, PURINA PUPPY CHOW 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. 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.
WHEN FEEDING FOR REPRODUCTION
PURINA PUPPY CHOW 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.
MAKING THE SWITCH TO PURINA PUPPY CHOW
When switching to PURINA PUPPY CHOW from another food, please allow 7 to 10 days for the transition. Gradually add more PURINA PUPPY CHOW 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.
MAKING THE SWITCH TO ADULT DOG FOOD
As your puppy develops, please refer to the feeding chart to determine when to transition your puppy based on his size to the Purina Dog Chow Formula that’s right for your dog. Please allow 7 to 10 days for the transition.
Provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily.
For your pet’s health, see your veterinarian regularly.
STORE IN A COOL, DRY PLACE.
