Feeding Weaning Pups: Puppies start to nibble on solid foods at 3 – 4 weeks of age. Keep moistened on Beneful Healthy Puppy (three parts kibble to one part water) available to puppies at all times until fully weaned (6 – 8 weeks of age).


Feeding Growing Pups

After weaning, Beneful Healthy Puppy can be feed 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 individual needs can vary. Feed to maintain idea body condition as shown. 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.


Feed for Reproduction

Beneful Healthy Puppy 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 good body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation.


Feeding Tip

When switching your dog to Beneful Healthy Puppy, please allow 7 – 10 days for the transition. Gradually add more Beneful Healthy Puppy and less of the previous food to your dog’s dish each day until the changeover is complete. 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.
