Components of Healthy Cat Food

Healthy cat food starts with healthy ingredients. You want the best for your cat, and we understand that. That’s why we’ve developed recipes that use ingredients proven to be beneficial to cats. 

Take a look at our key ingredients:

Protein Sources From Meat, Fish or Poultry

Real meat provides the flavors cats love and the high-quality protein they need.

Dietary Fats and Omega Fatty Acids

Energy-rich fats provide essential fatty acids and support the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins A, E, D and K. Omega-3 and Omega-6 help support your cat's immune system and have other important biological functions.

Energy-Rich Carbohydrates

Wholesome grains help maintain your cat's energy. Research conducted by Purina scientists has shown that cats can and do readily use carbohydrate sources for energy.

Vitamins and Minerals

A mix of vitamins and minerals contribute to a complete and balanced diet, while supporting a healthy immune system and promoting a shiny, healthy coat.

Hopefully this gets you started on the path to finding the right food for your cat. Learn more about Purina cat foods.
