At Purina, we believe in creating food that nourishes the whole pet, from giving them energy to chase a ball or conquer a feather to providing them with cutting edge nutrition that gives them more healthy, happy years with you. The bonds we have with our pets nourish their lives as well as yours - that's why we're always working hard to push pet nutrition forward.
Our team of over 400 scientists, including nutritionists, aim to make discoveries that better the lives of pets everywhere, and conduct extensive, non-invasive studies to see how our formulas affect pets not just in the present, but for years to come. Pet lovers themselves, they know how it feels to want the very best for your pet.
What does nutrition mean to Purina, and what are the values we hold ourselves to in every product we make?
It's Simple. 6 beliefs. Countless discoveries.
We're not following the trend of swapping grains and corn for other ingredients that haven’t been subjected to decades of extensive research in pet food.
Ounce for ounce, corn has twice the level of antioxidants of an apple
We know high-quality protein is an important element of a complete and balanced diet for dogs and cats.
The high-quality protein in Purina products
We've done the research and found that grain is an effective complement to protein for dogs.
Between our Research and Development Center in Northwest Missouri and our headquarters in St. Louis, hundreds of our researchers are working around the clock to make discoveries that will better pets' lives, from finding the drivers of pet obesity to understanding how nutrition affects aging. Beyond our home base, we also have researchers in France, China and Australia working to make new discoveries.
We publish our results in top-tier academic journals and present at major veterinary conferences.
