Feeding weaning pups: Puppies start to nibble on solid foods at three to four weeks of age. Keep moistened dog food (three parts dry food to one part water) available to puppies at all times until fully weaned (six to eight weeks of age).
Feeding growing pups: After weaning, dog food 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 above, but remember individual needs can vary. Feed to maintain ideal body condition shown on package. 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.
Feeding for reproduction: Purina Dog 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.
Switching to Purina Dog Chow: When switching to Purina Dog Chow from another food, allow 7-10 days for the transition. Gradually add more Purina Dog Chow and less of the previous food to your pet's dish each day until the changeover is complete.
Provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily.
Store in a cool, dry place.
*Amounts are recommended for an average adult dog with normal activity. Remember food intake requirements vary depending on age, activity and environment, and should be adjusted accordingly..© 2012 Nestle Purina PetCare Company
