Feeding weaning pups: Puppies start to nibble on solid foods at 3-4 weeks of age. Keep moistened Purina Little Bites (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 Little Bites 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.
Feeding for reproduction: Purina Little Bites 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 body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation.
Switching to Purina Little Bites: When switching from another food, allow 7-10 days for the transition. Gradually add more Purina Little Bites and less of the previous food to your pet's dish each day until the changeover is complete..
