Why High Protein Cat Food?


Cats need protein for energy and to help maintain healthy skin and coat. A high protein diet for cats also helps to support lean muscle mass. 


We offer high protein wet and dry cat food choices, as well as high protein kitten food formulas, each nutritionally complete and balanced to meet your cat’s needs at each life stage.  


If you’re looking for the best high protein cat food to put in your cat’s bowl, whether dry, wet or a mix of both, there’s a Purina choice they’re sure to love.
