Purina Pro Plan Adult Complete Essentials Shredded Blend Chicken & Rice Directions:
- We recommend that you keep your dog in ideal body condition and not allow your dog to become overweight. The exact amount of food your dog requires will need to be adjusted according to age, activity and environment, but a good place to start is with these guidelines for an average, active, adult dog fed once daily.
- FEEDING WEANING PUPS: Start puppies on dry or moistened Pro Plan as early as they begin to nibble at solid foods, generally 3 - 4 weeks of age.
- FEEDING GROWING PUPS: Feed pups (to six months of age) all of the moistened Pro Plan they will consume at intervals throughout the day. If fed dry, Pro Plan may be kept before pups at all times.
- 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.
- Provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily.
- For your pet's health, see your veterinarian regularly.
To avoid dietary upsets 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.
