Transition Instructions

You should consider transitioning gradually to new pet foods to help eliminate any digestive issues. We recommend consumers introduce a new pet food over a period of 7 - 10 days to help avoid digestive upset. The first day we recommend mixing 10 percent of the new food with 90 percent of the current food. Each day, increase the amount of the new food while decreasing the amount of the current food.

Where is your dog and cat food manufactured?

99% of Purina pet food products sold in the U.S. are manufactured in our own facilities in the U.S.

Why does your dog and cat food contain colors?

Although dogs and cats are unable to distinguish color, we know that most pet owners consider the product’s appearance when purchasing food for their pet. Artificial coloring is added to maintain a more desirable and consistent appearance. All colorings used in our pet foods are approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Where are your ingredients sourced from? Are they sourced from China?

The vast majority of ingredients used in Purina brand products are sourced from the United States. As with other food companies, we do source a limited amount of ingredients from China. These ingredients, which are primarily essential nutrients, such as taurine and B vitamins, are not commonly available in the USA or other countries in the quantities we need.

What is animal digest?

Animal digest is often considered a substandard pet food ingredient. In some cases, this is because the word "digest" is mistakenly thought to describe the contents of the digestive tract. The word "digest" in "animal digest" refers to the digestive process used in production, not the ingredients.The process starts with animal protein such as muscle and soft tissue supplied by USDA - inspected facilities.These ingredients are processed in order to break them down, similar to the process of digestion in the body. The resulting digest is a liquid, but can also be made into a paste or powder.Animal digest is a high - quality ingredient that provides an excellent source of protein and enhances the palatability of Dog & Cat foods.

Why don’t you utilize a natural source of Vitamin K instead of menadione?

The basic story about the dangers of Menadione has emerged at various times during the past decades as something of an urban legend in the pet food industry and are not research - based. In fact, numerous research studies and nutritional textbooks have identified Menadione as a safe and effective means of providing the important nutrient Vitamin K to Dogs & Cats. Menadione has been commonly used in pet foods for approximately 25 years with no documented negative health effects. Menadione is a stable source of the essential nutrient vitamin K. Vitamin K provides the following nutritional benefits: it is required for the synthesis of a number of body proteins, most notably the proteins responsible for normal blood clotting.

  • Weight control good for my lab who loves to eat!

    By on

    My thirty lb. overweight dog needed a weight control food that he liked and filled him up. I have tried so many over the last two years and nothing has worked. So I chose this one when I read the #1 ingredient was chicken. I add green beans and a small portion of fresh boiled chicken and he loves it. Just enough food to keep him happy. Max loves to eat, but now he eats less as it seems to fill him up. I am hoping to get his weight down in a year. So, I highly recommend this food. Anything to keep him happy and healthy!

    Is so nice not to have to cart large bags of dog food home from the grocery store. Prices at Chewy are more reasonable plus free shipping. Now if I could just talk the delivery driver into hauling them downstairs!!

  • Lucy loves her new food, and her new shape!

    By on

    My 6 year old German Shepherd was becoming noticeably overweight. I asked my vet about using a healthy weight food to assist in getting back to an acceptable weight. He agreed. Now, Lucy has lost weight and really is enjoying her new diet. I like the freshness of the food we receive from "Chewy.com".

  • 3 dogs.....1 bag

    By on

    Love Beneful healthy weight as it feeds the 5lb Teacup Yorkie, the 42lb Pit Bull mix, and the 90lb Lab..... Switched back from a "more healthy" natural food when the Lab gained 20 lbs due to all the "natural" fat in the "healthy" food.

  • My dogs love it.

    By on

    I sometimes overfeed but my 5 dogs love it. The fat content is pretty low for my more senior ones. Hard to get the big bags locally. No more disappointment for me in the dog food isle. Chewy always has it. Love Chewy and their service
