How to Make Powdery Puppy Chow (Not for Dogs) Recipe - Snapguide
substantiate that Purina Puppy Chow provides complete and balanced nutrition for all life stages of dogs.
After reading these review I decided I needed to post one as well. I purchased a large bag of Purina Puppy Chow a few months ago. I recently noticed that one of my dogs got sick... Just thought it might have eaten too quickly or because of the heat. But then one after another they all began to vomit very yellow, watery vomit. I knew they didn't get into anything and could not figure out anything different that could have caused this till my husband said "it's got to be the food." I stopped feeding the food and went and got a new bag and the vomiting stopped. The stools are starting to get back to normal. I called Purina and told them I believe their food caused my dogs/puppies to be sick. They asked for the UPC code and mfg code and good till this date info but didn't seem shocked that this could happen or anything.
I started feeding my dog Purina Puppy Chow when she was pregnant. She had diarrhea but I thought she would get over it. I had to eventually change her to adult food to stop it. About four days ago I bought a bag of Alpo and she has been in the hospital for two days vomiting and diarrhea. They are running test on her to find the problem but they do know she has blood in her vomit. The puppies were also vomiting but are better now they are not on her. I must also say I have 2 older dogs that seem ok at this point. The mother dog showed negative for any type parasites. She is on Revolution which takes care of most parasites. It is just odd that she became I'll on Purina Puppy Chow and Alpo which I found out is owned by Purina. I hope with all I have that she makes it through this.
Switching from puppy food to adult food is an exciting moment for your dog as it means he has reached his adult size.
It’s common to be uncertain about when to transition your puppy to an adult food. With the rapid growth that takes place in puppyhood, he may look like an adult dog at just a few months old; however, if he is not yet fully grown, he may still benefit from puppy-specific nutrition. An important factor to consider in determining when to make the switch from puppy food to adult food is the size of your dog.
Smaller breeds reach physical maturity earlier than larger breed dogs. Small-breed dogs that will grow to be 30 pounds or less when they are fully grown usually reach maturity around a year of age and should begin the transition to adult dog food at that point.
Medium-sized dogs that will weigh between 30 and 50 pounds when fully grown will mature between 12 to 14 months. A large breed puppy is expected to weigh more than 50 pounds as an adult, and he may not mature until he is 2 years old. He should continue to be fed puppy food like Purina Puppy Chow for Large Breed Puppies until his second birthday.
When switching, to an adult dog food consider the nutritional needs of your dog. At Purina Dog Chow, our mission is to provide your dog with the nutrition he needs to be his best every day.

So glad I haven't yet lost him! Because his symptoms were getting worse and worse, I was very close to making a vet visit to find out what was happening... I have a 40-lb. bag of Purina Dog Chow and will be toss it... My 1.5-year-old pug was a happy, energetic, fun-loving pup. I've fed him Purina Puppy Chow, and now Dog Chow since he was born. Now? He's been acting so out-of-character, it's scary.
