FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS FOR PRO PLAN SHREDDED BLEND CHICKEN
& RICE FORMULA
We recommend that you
keep your dog in ideal body condition and not allow him 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
FEEDING FOR REPRODUCTION
Pro Plan Shredded Blend
Chicken & Rice Formula 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 condition. Food intake may double
or even quadruple during lactation.
Start puppies on moistened
Pro Plan Shredded Blend Chicken & Rice Formula as early as they
begin to nibble at solid foods, generally three to four weeks of age.
FEEDING GROWING PUPS
Feed pups (to six months of age) all of the moistened Pro Plan Shredded
Blend Chicken & Rice Formula they will consume at intervals
throughout the day. If fed dry, Pro Plan Shredded Blend Chicken &
Rice Formula may be kept before pups at all times.
MAKING THE SWITCH TO PRO PLAN
Although you'll be
anxious to see the difference Pro Plan can make in your dog, please
allow seven to ten days to ease the transition from his current food.
This will help prevent dietary upsets. Each day, simply feed a little
less of the previous food and a little more of Pro Plan until you're
feeding Pro Plan exclusively.
