Purina Pro Plan Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Pet Food Ingredients

What are the ingredients in the Purina Pro Plan?

Every ingredient in Pro Plan formulas serves a specific purpose. Every dry Pro Plan formula (except dry cat UTH) starts with real meat, poultry, or fish as the first ingredient followed by the addition of healthy grains, vitamins, and minerals to provide pets with 100% of the nutrition they need to thrive. Every bowl of Pro Plan contains 100% of a dog’s or cat’s nutritional requirements for their specific life stage and unique needs. Learn more about ingredients on the package label or the Pro Plan product pages.

Are Purina Pro Plan dog and cat foods grain-free?

Purina Pro Plan offers both grain-free wet dog food formulas and grain-free dry and wet cat food formulas that provide science-based nutrition and high-quality ingredients. While Pro Plan has no grain-free dry dog formulas, it does offer some no corn, wheat, or soy formulas. To find the right Purina Pro Plan formula for your pet, use the Pro Plan MyPlan tool.

Does every Purina Pro Plan product contain probiotics?

No, select dry Pro Plan formulas that contain probiotics. Look for the guaranteed live probiotics burst and/or language on the packaging to ensure you’re choosing a formula that contains probiotics.

Does Purina Pro Plan cat food have taurine?

Yes, Purina Pro Plan cat foods always contain taurine. This important amino acid is essential for the proper functioning of a cat’s vision, heart muscle, digestive, and reproductive system. To find the right Pro Plan formula for your cat, use our MyPlan tool.

What is an ingredient realignment, or minor shift of ingredients, and what does it mean for Purina Pro Plan pet food?

An ingredient realignment or minor shift of ingredients means that the order of the ingredients has changed.  For example, if salmon meal was the 9th ingredient in a previous formula, in the reformulated product it might now be the 8th ingredient.

How did Purina choose the probiotic strain in Pro Plan formulas?

Purina has been studying probiotics and pet nutrition for decades. Most probiotics cannot survive different variables such as temperature.

We carefully chose a probiotic that is robust and stable enough to survive our pet food manufacturing process, transportation and storage.

The probiotic we chose is safe for both dogs and cats, delivering a positive benefit for your pet. Learn more about the Pro Plan probiotic pet food formulas.
