FEEDING WEANING PUPS
Puppies start to nibble on solid foods at 3-4 weeks of age. Keep moistened Purina Puppy Chow Large Breed Formula (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 Large Breed Formula 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.
SWITCHING TO PURINA PUPPY CHOW LARGE BREED FORMULA
When switching to Purina Puppy Chow Large Breed Formula from another food, please allow 7-10 days for the transition. Gradually add more Purina Puppy Chow Large Breed Formula 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.
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.
An excellent protein source created after chicken or turkey 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.
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.
Nope, it doesn’t come from a brewery. It’s actually whole and broken grains of rice that give dogs a great carbohydrate source.
Comes from finely ground soybeans, after their oil has been removed. This ingredient is an excellent source of protein.
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.
