A complete dry food scientifically formulated for puppies of large robust breeds.
To help puppies get the best possible start in life, Purina vets and nutritionists have developed PRO PLAN® Large Athletic Puppy OPTISTART® specially formulated for large breed puppies. OPTISTART®, based on colostrum, helps to support puppies’ natural defences which helps them to combat daily challenges.
This complete dry puppy food has been specially formulated for dental care; it also helps support long-term health, joint health, and helps support a healthy immune system. It contains all the nutrients puppies need to help them grow into a healthy, happy adult dog.
Our delicious puppy food with high quality ingredients and with Chicken as No.1 ingredient, offers a great taste that dogs and puppies love. This dry puppy food is suitable for gestating and lactating female dogs, too.
The formula contains OPTISTART®, an ingredient blend that includes colostrum – a nutrient from mother’s first milk that helps support your puppy’s natural defences.
Rich in high-quality chicken, the diet has been formulated by PURINA experts to promote strong teeth and joints, and to support all-round long-term health.
The nutritional needs of large dogs vary depending on their body shape – either robust or athletic. This formula has been specially tailored for the higher body fat mass and lower energy requirements of large robust dogs.
Please select the daily amount needed for consumption, based on the expected adult weight of your dog and the corresponding current age of your puppy. All feeding weights listed are in grams per day.
|Body weight (kg)||1.5-3 months||4-5 months||6-8 months||9-11 months||12-24 months|
During weaning from 3 to 6 weeks of age offer moistened PRO PLAN® Puppy 3 to 4 times per day. After weaning, feed according to the guidelines in the table. From 3 months gradually reduce the amount of added water. For healthy development ensure your puppy maintains a lean body condition during growth. Adjust the daily amounts up or down according to your puppy’s activity level, physical condition and individual needs. Clean, fresh water should be available at all times. To monitor your dog’s health, consult a vet regularly.
