100% Complete & Balanced Nutrition That Builds, Replenishes & Repairs Every Day
Your puppy isn't just growing, he's also depleting energy stores and causing wear and tear on muscles and joints just by being playful. The fact is, from the moment he's born and throughout his lifetime, his body is building, replenishing, and repairing itself 24 hours a day, seven days a week. That why Purina created the Purina Puppy Chow Build Replenish Repair Philosophy--to provide your puppy with the smart nutrition he needs to optimize this ongoing lifelong process, so he stays vigorously healthy now and as an adult.
Provides a well-balanced diet including amino acids and electrolytes to help a puppy's intestinal cells develop, so he can absorb the nutrients he needs.
Contains a complex spectrum of essential nutrients needed for a puppy's proper growth, including the development of healthy bones and joints.
Formulated with high-quality protein and a special antioxidant blend to help build and support a healthy immune system.
Contains all the nutrients needed to replenish and support vital organs, including a healthy heart.
Provides the amino acids and minerals needed to support a puppy's natural ability to repair and maintain healthy muscle cells.
Puppies grow and develop at a rapid rate, so they need up to twice the nutrition of adult dogs. That's why Purina Puppy Chow Complete Nutrition Formula is specially formulated with the extra nutrition your puppy needs for proper growth and development. High-quality ingredients come together in a complete and balanced diet that helps build, replenish, and repair your puppy's body non-stop.
Animal feeding tests using Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) procedures substantiate that Purina Puppy Chow provides complete and balanced nutrition for all life stages.

Feeding Weaning Pups: Puppies start to nibble on solid foods at three to four weeks of age. Keep moistened Purina Puppy Chow (three parts Puppy Chow to one part water) available to puppies at all times until fully weaned (six to eight weeks of age).
Feeding Growing Pups: After weaning, Purina Puppy Chow can be fed moistened or dry at the same time every day--very young puppies three times a day, older puppies twice a day. Use the feeding guidelines shown here, but remember that individual needs can vary. Feed to maintain ideal body condition as displayed on the package. Slight appetite changes and occasional digestive upsets are normal in puppies. If upsets become severe or linger longer than a day or two, contact your veterinarian.
Feeding For Reproduction: Purina Puppy Chow 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 healthy pregnant female's good body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation.
Switching To Purina Puppy Chow: When switching to Purina Puppy Chow from another dog food, allow seven to ten days for the transition. Gradually add more Purina Puppy Chow and less of the previous food to yours pet's dish each day until the changeover is complete. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets.
Water: Make sure your puppy has plenty of fresh water, in a clean container, at all times.
Veterinary Care: For your pet's health, see your veterinarian regularly.
