At the recommendation of our puppy's breeder we started him with the ProPlan Focus dry dog food. Our puppy has enjoyed this food and has always finished his food.
When we purchased our puppy from the breader she stated she was using this for our puppy. His coat is shinny and he is starting to become our small little pony. He is estimated to be a 110 pounds we are currently at 35 pounds and he is about 4 months old and the vet agrees this is the best food. I wish there was more coupons for this product due to we can only buy from the expensive pet stores.
I purchased a chocolate lab puppy (now 4 months) and when I got her home I found that she had a severe uti and extremely dry skin. I had to use fish oil in her old food but switched to this food when the vet reccomended it. Since the switch, she has had no digestive issues, her skin is amazing and I get compliments on her coat every time someone sees her. I have now put my 11 year old dog on the senior version and we are one happy family!

RECOMMENDED DAILY FEEDING AMOUNTS*
*Using a standard 8 oz/250 ml measuring cup which contains approximately 106 g of Pro Plan.
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.
Nestlé 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 puppy’s daily food intake may be appropriate. You may wish to consult your veterinarian about a weight control program.
RECOMMENDED FOR GROWTH
This product is for growth of large breed puppies and maintenance of adult dogs - not for reproducing or lactating females. If you have a pregnant or nursing female, we recommend Pro Plan Focus Chicken & Rice Formula or Pro Plan Focus Lamb & Rice Formula puppy foods.
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 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. 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.
