How many times a day should I feed my Purina Pro Plan puppy food?
Answer

After weaning, Purina Pro Plan can be fed either moistened or dry to meet the nutritional needs of your growing puppy. Establish a regular feeding schedule for optimal results, starting with three small meals a day for younger puppies. As your puppy ages, you can gradually reduce the number of feedings to one in the morning and one in the evening. This transition allows for proper growth and development while adjusting to your puppy's changing nutritional requirements. Remember to follow the feeding guidelines on the packaging, adjusting portions based on your puppy's weight, age, and activity level. It's always a good idea to consult with your veterinarian to ensure your puppy's diet meets their specific needs as they grow.

What is the difference between Purina ONE and Pro Plan?
Answer

Purina ONE and Purina Pro Plan are both product lines from the Purina brand, but they are targeted at different market segments and have some differences in terms of ingredients, formulations, and marketing focus. Purina ONE offers a variety of formulations for different life stages and specific health concerns. They have formulas for puppies, adults, and seniors, as well as formulas targeting issues like weight management and sensitive skin. While Purina ONE uses quality ingredients, it is generally considered more mainstream and may have a simpler ingredient profile than Pro Plan. On the other hand, Purina Pro Plan provides a more extensive range of specialized formulas, including options for puppies, adults, and seniors, as well as breed-specific formulations, weight management, sensitive skin and stomach, and more. Purina Pro Plan often includes higher-quality, specialized ingredients tailored to specific health goals. This may include ingredients like real meat, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, and other nutrients to support overall well-being.

Is chicken and rice good for puppies?
Answer

Yes, plain boiled chicken and rice can be a suitable and gentle option for managing mild digestive upset in puppies. It's often used as a bland diet to soothe the digestive system and provide easily digestible nutrients. Digestive issues aside, commercial chicken and rice puppy food can be a convenient and nutritionally balanced option for feeding your puppy. High-quality commercial puppy foods are formulated to meet the specific nutritional needs of growing dogs. Chicken is a good source of protein, and rice is often included as a digestible carbohydrate source. Look for puppy food with high-quality ingredients, including real chicken as a primary protein source. Avoid foods with excessive fillers, by-products, and artificial additives. Ensure the puppy food is specifically designed for your puppy's life stage. Different formulations are available for puppies, adults, and seniors, each addressing the unique nutritional requirements of the respective life stages. Look for puppy foods that meet the standards established by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO). This indicates that the food has undergone testing to ensure it meets the nutritional needs of puppies. If you're uncertain about the best choice for your puppy or if your puppy has specific health concerns, consult with your veterinarian.

Can I mix chicken with puppy food?
Answer

Yes, in many cases, you can mix plain, cooked chicken with your puppy's regular food. This can be a good option if you want to add some variety to your puppy's diet or if you're trying to make their food more appealing. Make sure the chicken is cooked thoroughly and is free of seasoning, spices, and additives. Seasonings like salt, onion, and garlic can be harmful to dogs. While chicken can provide additional protein, ensure your puppy's overall diet is balanced. Commercial puppy food is formulated to meet their specific nutritional needs, so adding chicken should complement, not replace, their regular food.

Does chicken and rice help puppy diarrhea?
Answer

Feeding plain boiled chicken and rice is a common home remedy that some pet owners use to help manage mild cases of diarrhea in dogs, including puppies. The bland diet of boiled chicken and rice may help soothe your puppy's digestive system and provide easily digestible nutrients. Puppy food that contains chicken and rice can be a suitable and balanced option for your puppy, especially if it's a high-quality commercial puppy food designed to meet the nutritional needs of growing dogs. Many reputable puppy foods include a combination of protein sources, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals to support a puppy's development. However, if your puppy is experiencing diarrhea, it's important to assess the specific formulation of the puppy's food. Some puppies may be sensitive to certain ingredients or formulations, and a sudden change in diet can sometimes contribute to digestive issues. Examine the ingredient list on the puppy food packaging. Ensure that it contains easily digestible and high-quality ingredients. Look for a limited number of ingredients and avoid additives, artificial preservatives, and fillers. If you're switching from one brand or type of puppy food to another, it's recommended to do so gradually. Mix a small amount of the new food with the old food and gradually increase the proportion of the new food over several days. This can help prevent digestive upset.

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. Nestlรฉ 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 puppyโ€™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 dogโ€™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. Provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily. For your pet's health, see your veterinarian regularly.

Puppies do best on puppy food blends

ProPlan offers a wonderful option for puppies. The Shredded Blend Chicken and Rice provides a food that puppies enjoy and that provides a good mix that exercise their mouths. They love the kibble, but the shred provides a little extra. Seems like they enjoy "treats" at the same time.

Best dog food on the market!

Bought this food for my puppy because he was fed Purina Pro Plan at the shelter where we adopted him. He loves the crunchy shreds and gobbles the whole bowl up in one feeding! Nash has always looked forward to his meal but now he rushes to the bowl in the morning to crunch his favorite food! I also feed him the Pro Plan treats too. He can't wait to hear the bags rattle! I will continue feeding him the best food on Earth since it's filled with nutrients and grain free products. Can't go wrong with this food. Your dog will love it as does my Nash!!

Outstanding nutrition!

We rescued a dog that was really emaciated. He needed a diet that would bring him out of death door and this was it. He loves his food and continues to enjoy it as of today. Unfortunately, he is not a candidate for adoption due to his age and overall medical problems nonetheless he will have a forever home in our rescue facilities.
