Beneful® Dry dog Food Feeding Tips
Feeding Weaning Pups, 3-4 weeks
Start your puppy on Beneful® when he begins to nibble at solid foods, generally at 3-4 weeks.
Feeding Growing Pups, 6 months
Gradually start to feed your pup all of the Beneful® Healthy Puppy food he will eat at intervals throughout the day, up to six months.

Most adult dogs can be fed once daily, but twice-a-day is recommended for very active dogs. To help your dog maintain an ideal body condition, adjust feeding amount and frequency for his age, level of activity and environment.

Feeding For Reproduction*
Beneful® dry dog food provides reproducing females the extra nutrition they need during gestation and lactation. Note that you may need to adjust the intake amount as needed to maintain her good body condition. This may mean doubling or even quadrupling her intake during lactation.
