Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Puppy Is Finally ENJOYING Her Food We were very saddened to find out that our lab/boxer puppy wasn't liking ANY of the foods that we would give her. Friends and family would say, "when she gets hungry enough she'll eat it!" But we love our puppy, and we wanted her to 'enjoy' what she ate. We then tried Beneful for puppies, and we blended in about 1/3 of a can of Iams Lamb/Rice ground meat food. She will show some hesitancy, because she would rather eat what we are...BUT, we were so excited to see her eating it, right down to the bottom of the bowl - every time! Thank you SO MUCH for making Beneful for puppies. It has relieved us of so much anxiety over her eating issues. Please never change it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, solved tummy troubles! We adopted a boxer/cane corso at 8 wks old and a golden retriever/lab at 6 months old within two days of each other... We have had them for about two months now, and they have been on Beneful puppy food for about two weeks... Both pups were on Pedigree puppy food when we got them, and they both had bloating and very stinky gas following every meal, so I had to do something about their diets! We have four children, so buying expensive, vets office pet food was not an option. I found Beneful at our local grocery store priced within a dollar or two if their other food, so decided to try it, and what a difference! Their costs are now sleek and shiny and we no longer have fur all over everything, they are excited for meal times, and the gas and bloating problem is virtually GONE! Thank you for making a high quality, affordable food for our newest family members!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 yr. old puppy loves I just got my puppy. He is almost 2 years old. He is half Miniature Pinscher and half Chihuahua and the previous owner was giving him Kirkland brand dog food which he was not eating a lot of. The day after getting him, I took my new puppy over to meet and visit with my mothers dog, a Bichon Frise. When we went inside, he ran straight to his food bowl and was eating the Beneful as if he were starving. So I learned very quickly that he loves Beneful and I am now feeding him this and he really loves it. Thank you for the great dog food.

Puppies start to nibble on solid foods at 3 – 4 weeks of age.  Keep moistened Beneful Puppy (three parts kibble to one part water) available to puppies at all times until fully weaned (6 – 8 weeks of age).



After weaning, Beneful Puppy 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.



Beneful Puppy 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.



When switching your dog to Beneful Puppy, please allow 7 – 10 days for the transition.  Gradually add more Beneful Puppy and less of the previous food to your dog’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.
