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.

It’s simply ground whole corn. And it provides dogs with nutrients like carbs for energy and the essential fatty acid linoleic acid that helps support healthy skin and a shiny coat.
Gluten is the protein part of any whole grain – in this case, it’s from the whole corn kernel. Corn gluten meal comes from the production of vegetable oil and packs a protein punch.
An excellent protein source created after chicken is processed for human consumption. This nutrient-rich source of protein is then added to our kibble formula, where it helps provide the amino acids that are essential for dogs of all ages.
Every healthy diet needs some fat. For dogs, fat provides energy and helps keep their coat healthy. Our products provide an optimal amount of fat– and this fat adds to each formula’s great taste.
Comes from finely ground soybeans, after their oil has been removed. This ingredient is an excellent source of protein.
