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.

Studies are showing dogs on some grain-free formulas are getting DCM in greater numbers, even breeds not genetically predisposed. While grain-free per se is probably not the culprit, researchers believe it may have something to do with the legumes and potatoes the dog food companies added instead of more meat, to keep the protein levels up but costs down. These ingredients are suspected to possibly reduce the amount of taurine available to the dog, thereby causing or exacerbating heart disease. Note: If this is accurate, adding taurine to foods with legumes and potatoes would be moot, which is how some companies have responded.
Purina uses nutritionists and their own feeding trials rather than copying others, as smaller companies do. I would not recommend ALL their formulas, but this Pro Plan puppy is excellent, producing shiny coat and small stools.
This sort of issue seems more indicative of a manufacturing or storage quality control issue than anything else. Packaged food was received in-person and stored inside a climate controlled office for less than 2-3 hours before opening. I opened the box and unpacked both bags from original shipping box, and both bags were dry and free of any obvious damage; no holes or punctures evident.

I decided to search online to see if others had similar experience and was appalled to find SEVERAL instances where people had ordered the larger back of Pro Plan puppy food from Amazon and their dogs had become violently ill. At what point does this get pulled from Amazon's inventory?!!
I will NOT be ordering dog food from Amazon again.
