I originally bought this food to move my new puppy on to after I took her home. That was about 3 months ago and I will tell you that he gobbles her food up in seconds! She absolutely loves this stuff! Not to mention her coat is so shiny. We've been feeding her about cup in the morning and a cup at night and she has maintained the perfect weight, which is very important for puppies! I would definitely recommend!
My baby Standard Poodle has been eating Pro Plan Puppy Savor Chicken and Rice since I got her at 10 weeks. She is now 8 months old and growing fast. She loves the taste (and a spoonful of Pro Plan Puppy Chicken and Rice canned food makes it even better) and her coat is luxurious and very Poodle-y! I'm so glad that I've found this food among the Pro Plan family.....she'll switch to Grain Free Pro Plan Select when she gets older (what my adults eat) and I know she already loves it because I use if for treats for the baby!
I am a pet foster for the Humane Society of Valdosta-Lowndes County. I LOVE fostering pups. I recently had the pleasure of fostering 2 bottle babies. They were initially on puppy formula, but when the time came to wean them, I mixed their wet food with some of the Pro Plan Savor Puppy Shredded Blend Chicken and Rice Formula. They preferred the Pro Plan over the wet food!! Of course they had trouble eating it at first but as they got a little older they had no problem!! They thought the food was delicious and my older dogs liked it too! I now recommend it to everyone in rescue who has puppies!

RECOMMENDED DAILY FEEDING AMOUNTS
Using a standard 8 oz/250 ml measuring cup which contains approximately 98 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.
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 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.
