Puppy Feeding: Start puppies on moistened Purina ONE as early as they will nibble at solid foods, generally 3-4 weeks of age. Allow your puppy to eat at will until fully weaned (6-8 weeks). After weaning, feed pups (to six months of age) all of the moistened or dry Purina ONE they will consume at intervals throughout the day. If water is added, use no more than one part warm (not hot) liquid to four parts Purina ONE, changing frequently to ensure freshness. If fed dry, this formula may be kept before pups at all times.
For best results, develop a regular feeding schedule, such as three small meals a day for younger puppies. Gradually reduce the one feeding in the morning to one in the evening as your puppy ages. The routine should not vary. Fresh Water, Proper Diet & Veterinary Care: Be sure to provide fresh water in a clean container for your dog daily. Proper diet, exercise and veterinary care are the best ways to keep your dog healthy. If your dog hasn't had a check-up in the past year, please make an appointment today.
Making the Switch to Purina ONE: Although you'll be anxious to see the difference Purina ONE can make in your dog, please allow 7-10 days to ease the transition from your dog's current food. Each day, simply feed a little less of the previous food and a little more Purina ONE until you're feeding Purina ONE exclusively. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets. No Supplements Necessary: Purina ONE provides 100% complete and balanced nutrition for the growth of large breed puppies. There is no need to add vitamins, minerals or other supplements, unless specifically directed by a veterinarian. The Importance of Ideal Body Condition: Research at the Purina PetCare Center indicates that avoiding overfeeding of puppies may help their development. Maintaining ideal body condition is key to encouraging proper growth in all puppies, especially large breeds. The indicated amounts are only a guideline. If your puppy becomes overweight, a reduction of his daily food intake may be appropriate. You may wish to consult your veterinarian about a weight-control program.
When Feeding for Reproduction: Purina ONE 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.
