Feeding Instructions: Puppies start to nibble at solid food at 3 to 4 weeks old. Keep moistened PRO PLAN Puppy available at all times and allow your puppy to eat at will until fully weaned at 6 to 8 weeks. After weaning PRO PLAN Puppy formula can be fed moistened or dry. Use the age of the puppy to determine the number of feeds per day. For puppies under 3 months: 3-4 meals (moistened), 3-6 months: 3 meals, 6-12 months: 2 meals. Use the feeding table to select the daily amount to feed, and if your puppy is losing weight or overweight when fed these amounts, adjust accordingly. To help your puppy maintain an ideal body condition, monitor your puppy’s weight on a regular basis, making sure that their ribs are easily felt and their waist is visible when viewed from above. Maintaining an ideal body condition can impact your puppy’s lifelong health.
Feeding for reproduction: PRO PLAN provides the extra nutrition needed by reproducing females during 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.
