Puppies have unique needs. That’s why inside every bag of Purina® Puppy Chow® Complete puppy food is a healthy-start blend of high-quality protein, DHA and all the essential nutrients to lay the foundation for a healthy, active life. Purina® Puppy Chow® Complete is carefully crafted in Canada making sure every bag meets our high quality standards. Animal feeding tests using AAFCO procedures substantiate that Purina Puppy Chow provides complete and balanced nutrition for all life stages of dogs including growth of large size dogs (32kg [70 lbs.] or more as an adult).
Feeding Instructions: Amounts are recommended for an average puppy with normal activity. Remember food intake requirements vary depending on age, activity and environment, and should be adjusted accordingly. Feeding Weaning Pups: Puppies start to nibble on solid foods at 3–4 weeks of age. Keep moistened Purina® Puppy Chow® (three parts kibble to one part water) available to puppies at all times until fully weaned (6–8 weeks of age). Feeding for Reproduction: Purina® Puppy Chow® provides 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. Feeding Growing Pups: 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. 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®: When switching to Purina® Puppy Chow® from another food, please allow 7–10 days for the transition. Gradually add more Purina® Puppy Chow® 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. Store in a cool, dry place.
