Feeding your pets the right way

When kitty meows for his chow, Purina PetCare listens. The world's largest pet food producer products are sold internationally by mass merchandisers, supermarkets, pet supply stores, and online retailers. Besides pet supplies, the company offers health insurance for dogs and cats through its PurinaCare Insurance Services subsidiary.

Purina PetCare Company engages in the manufacture and distribution of nutrition, health, and food products for cats and dogs worldwide. It offers dry dog ​​food, wet dog food, dog treats, dog snacks, dog litter, dog training pads, wet cat food, dry cat food, cat treats, and cat litter. The company was formerly known as Ralston Purina until 2001 when, as a result of its acquisition by Nestlé SA, the company's name was changed. Founded in 1894, Purina is based in St. Louis, Missouri. Purina PetCare promotes responsible pet care, humane education, community involvement and the positive bond between people and their pets.

At Purina, the purpose is to create 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 owners have with their pets nourish each others lives - that's why Purina is always working hard to push pet nutrition forward.

A team of over 400 scientists, including nutritionists, aimed to make discoveries that better the lives of pets everywhere, and conduct extensive, non-invasive studies to see how new formulas affect pets not just in the present, but for years to come. 

Did you know that pet food formulation is subjected to stricter standards than most human food? That's because pet food makes up the entirety of a pet's diet, so it has to deliver all of the nutrients they need. That's why pet foods so often use the phrase "complete and balanced."

Every pet food needs to meet federal (FDA) and state regulatory standards – as well as regalations in other countries - before they get anywhere near your pet's bowl. Pet food companies in the United States of America can volunteer to follow the Association of American Feed Control Officials' (AAFCO) guidelines, which encourage pet food companies to conduct feeding trials to make sure that their foods result in positive outcomes for real pets.

Purina sees industry standards as just a starting place. Not only do all products meet these standards, but most of them go beyond the requirements to provide optimal nourishment for pets. 

The Quality is in the Details

Purina knows what it's like to obsess over a pet's nutrition and to wonder what kind of quality assurance goes into making sure a pet food is ready for a pet to eat. Because most of the workers at Purina have pets of their own, they work hard to ensure that all products are safe for pets.

The company has spent the last 80 years building a trusted reputation, and going the extra mile to make sure it stays that way for the next hundred years. No detail is worth overlooking when it comes to taking care of pets.

Bright eyes, a shiny coat and a playful personality are the telltale signs of any healthy pet, and it all starts with a proper diet.
