Directions

Puppies start to nibble solid foods at 3 – 4 weeks of age. Keep moistened Pro Plan available at all times. Allow your puppy to eat at will until fully weaned (6 – 8 weeks). After weaning, Pro Plan can be fed moistened or dry. For best results, develop a regular feeding schedule such as three small meals a day for younger puppies. You can gradually reduce to one feeding in the morning and one in the evening as your puppy ages. The routine should not vary. As puppies near adulthood, their calorie needs may drop, and your puppy may begin leaving some food in the bowl. Don’t misinterpret this as an indication of dislike for the food. Instead, begin offering less so your puppy doesn’t overeat and stays in ideal body condition. Nestlé Purina Research 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 your puppy’s daily food intake may be appropriate. You may wish to consult your veterinarian about a weight control program. FEEDING FOR REPRODUCTION Pro Plan 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 ideal body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation. MAKING THE SWITCH TO PRO PLAN Although you’ll be anxious to see the difference Pro Plan 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 Pro Plan until you’re feeding Pro Plan exclusively. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets. Contains a source of live (viable) naturally occurring microorganisms. Provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily. For your pet’s health, see your veterinarian regularly.

    Small size perfect for my Shih Tzu puppy. He is able to chew these little nibbles. He also seems to really like that they are his size LOL I feel that this is a good brand and I will be buying this again

    This bag is different than the last bag.

    My dog loved this dog food for eight months and I got my latest subscribe and save bag on April 1. I still had half a container full from the last bag so I just literally opened this newest bag which is the exact same formula that I’ve been using—- but it is different. My dog will not touch it. Smells different too. It is May 5 today, I cannot return it because the last return day was May 1. 🤦🏼‍♀️. I’ve heard a few different people say that they’ve been getting different batches of Purina pro plan but I didn’t know if it was true. Someone said that they started putting cheaper or less quality of meat products in their dog food. I sure hope this is not true – but there definitely was a difference btwn my last 2 bags. Now I need to find a new food for my 1 yr old GSP.

    but I have to say after trying many many of the super expensive “higher” quality foods and grain free foods etc …

    I know some people knock Purina foods, but I have to say after trying many many of the super expensive “higher” quality foods and grain free foods etc out there…and getting less than satisfactory results with my dogs, I decided to try Pro Plan at the recommendation of several show breeders and professional handlers I know. One of my dogs always suffered from a chronically dry and cracked nose, along with itchy skin. I transitioned her over to the Purina Pro Plan line and have just been amazes at her overall condition and health. Her dry, cracked nose has improved SO much over the past few weeks and it is nearly gone now…her skin is no longer itching her like crazy and she just has this softness and shine to her coat!! She just looks SO much better than she ever has before on all those super high quality foods! I am a breeder of cocker spaniels and we now have all of our cockers on this food and we just LOVE the results we are seeing! We use the puppy chicken and rice, and the SPORT 30/20 one. I can now see why so many top breeders and professional show handlers like this food. It works!! It may not have the most perfect of ingredients by some people’s beliefs and standards…but you cannot argue with the results it produces in these dogs! I always said I would never ever feed Purina to my precious dogs…. and now I am …..which is funny to me…and I am thankful that I was pushed to try this food!! It has made a world of difference in my dogs! All I can say to the skeptics….just TRY it!

    Bag bought Nov. 2023 not good

    My golden has been on this for months and my new golden doodle has been on it for about a month. Both loved it but the latest bag we got made them both sick. We are going to order a new bag and hope it was just a bad bag.

    Great choice but don’t recommend from Amazon

    I’ve been feeding this to my pups since they’ve been 8 weeks. I love this option BUT my past 2 auto deliveries I’ve had to report the bag to Amazon to get a refund.The first time the bag was completely infested with ants.The second time, I found a giant clump (picture attached) in the bag while pouring it into the airtight container.Needless to say, I didn’t take any chances and just completely threw the bags away. The first time I replaced it, there was nothing wrong with the replacement bag. This time however, I requested a refund and decided to buy in store instead.

    During Covid, we got a golden doodle, because they said it would be quiet and would not shed. (they lied, but besides the point). We got this food, and the dog loved it! Its a good, healthy choice, with no cons to the product that i can think of! a good amount of it, lasted 5 months, which, we were suprised. 100%, do not hesitate to purchase!Do i recomend ? YES!

    Healthy dog food.

    This is my favorite dog food for my Goldendoodle puppy. She gobbles it up and it agrees with her digestive system. I do not buy the chicken though as that’s where allergies can start to be a problem. I think it’s lamb or salmon that I stick to.

    First time owner but very happy

    It makes me a little sad to see other offerings, even from Purina, at less than half the price per pound as this. I’ll admit that up front. But my dog is just so dang healthy that I’m nervous to rock the boat. Coat, energy, weight, poops, illness (lack thereof). I know those don’t solely depend on food but he’s just in great shape so we’re sticking with Pro Plan for the time being. They are also one of only a handful of dog foods that get approval from WSAVA, I hear that’s a very good thing.Oh also my dog likes this food enough that they are usually what we use for treats, too. If it ain’t broke, right?

    Not the same

    Our dogs were raised from 10 weeks on Purina One Lamb and Rice shredded formula (per our vet). They both enjoyed it and when they turned 15 months old we switched from the puppy formula to the adult small breed. They continued to be healthy and do well on it. BUT then one day when we went to reorder it the shredded formula Lamb and Rice has been discontinued. We bought this one as it’s the closet to what they had always had. They ate it but not very enthusiastically. I really hate when pet food companies discontinue something, especially when your dogs are fussy eaters. So that’s why the four stars. But I still stand by the brand as our babies are healthy and we were able to buy the shredded formula Beef and Rice and they seem to like it even better.

    He eats it with or without water added. He is a very picky eater and I want the best food that I can afford to buy him, with the best ingredients and I am happy that he eats this without hesitation! I believe chicken can be harmful and cause arthritis in dogs. I will stick with the Pro Plan!

    I decided to try another flavor and my puppy liked it. I usually get the rice and chicken from the store. I will buy again but not from Amazon, the pet store sells it 6 dollars cheaper and now that I know she likes it I will get the big bag which is also cheaper at the pet store. Seems it’s a good idea to check around sometimes for prices.

    Good, Solid Puppy Food

    My dog’s breeder recommended Purina Pro Plan Puppy Chicken and Rice Formula (dry) for the puppy’s first year. He’s now 14 months old and a happy, healthy boy who has switched to adult food.I researched food choices like it was my job when I first got my puppy. I was reading too many blogs and listening to too many other people’s opinions about what I should fed my dog. At my most crazed point, I found research on nutrient density needs for puppies and went to the store to compare all of the top brands (including the “natural” more expensive brands) to see which had the ideal level of protein, fat, fiber, etc. As I compared these 30-something lb bags of food, I realized how obsessive I was being.If you are like me and are concerned you might do permanent damage to your best friend if you use the wrong brand, talk to your vet or just use your common sense. Find a trusted brand or follow your breeder or vet’s guidance – just make a choice – and use all that brain space making sure your puppy is fed an appropriate amount of food on a schedule and getting a good level of mental and physical exertion.This is a good, solid food. It fed one smart, healthy vizsla for the first part of his life!

    We got this puppy food for our golden retriever puppy and she really likes it. We compared many different dry dog foods and this one had the best ingredients. The food makes our pup feel full and she has no problems digesting it. We follow the food dosage on the back of the bag and our pup stays full and has lots of energy throughout the day. We would definitely recommend this puppy food.

    For a skinny never hungry GSD

    Got for my German shepherd who doesn’t want to ever eat her dog food. She’s so skinny, her spine is like a dorsal fin 🦈 so vet suggested the high protein diet which she ate 1x and then stopped. She’s maintaining weight and eating less so I guess it’s good but she’s not eating it more than the other less expensive level purina one but I guess it’s sustaining her. With nearly $100 a bag of food it’s getting to be a status symbol to have and feed a dog 🐕

    Same food different packaging

    I ordered the Purina ProPlan High Protien puppy formula in chicken and rice flavor. I got Purina ProPlan Focus puppy formula in chicken and rice flavor. While researching what was in the “wrong formula” I found out that this was the same food in old packaging. The product has been rebranded (like so many other products) but as I was concerned for my fur baby, I over reacted to the difference. Amazon customer service was awesome about all of it. I have not started using it yet so I have no idea if any of these reviews about the product quality are accurate but I wanted to put something positive out there about the customer service I recieved.

    Vet Recommended and Puppy Loves It!

    We have been in the process of transitioning our puppy from her breeder provided food to this formula at the recommendation of two different doctors at our vet office. She LOVES the flavor and the kibble is small enough for our puppy to easily eat from 5lbs to her now 12lb frame. She’s so motivated by this food that we use individual pieces of kibble for training and food puzzle time. Highly recommend.

    I’m baby sitting a pup and hadn’t had my own doggo in 2 decades. On top of my own anxiety, the owner was new to the pup herself. I went to 2 “pet stores” and asked a Vet’s office. The answer was Purina Pro Pup. Can I just say the pup, an Australian Shepard mix, 4 months old LOVES this food…loves it like his treats so much I keep some in a cup to take on walks if I need a sit/stay/come… he will do it all for his Pro Pup! Thank you Purina and kudos to Amazon the food came quickly and was fresh!

    My puppy loves her food

    My puppy gobbles this right up. She loves her food! It’s what the person I bought her from had her on, so I stayed with it. I wish they price was a bit better, but thankfully with a small breed, it takes her a while to finish a bag. And, I don’t want to change her food until she graduates to non puppy food. Why change it if it’s working? And, she loves it and looks forward to eating.

    Dog extremely sick, food moldy, buyer beware!!

    I almost never write negative reviews. I am a longtime Purina user. We started our bulldog puppy on the pro plan puppy lamb mix when we got him in December. It had been going well until the most recent bag, which made him very sick. We didn’t know what was going on until yesterday pouring him his breakfast and seeing that much of the food in the bag was clumped together and covered in mold. This is a bag that we opened just days prior. He’s been very unwell and shaky since opening this bag.We emailed Purina immediately with pictures of the food. To our utter shock and dismay, they replied with a defensive email about their pristine factory conditions and instruction not to expose their food to moisture or heat. There was absolutely zero concern for our baby’s health. They said they would put a coupon book in the mail. We are just floored by this and can’t believe how corporate and uncaring and organization they’ve become.Please, for the sake and safety of your dog, do not order this food.
