We invest in investigation to help pets have a longer and healthier life. That’s the reason why the quality of our ingredients and pet formulas is the best, and the reason why we’re a company 100% dedicated to pet care.

At PURINA® we share your passion, and we will never stop looking for new ways to improve your pet’s life.



Nourishing Pets. Enriching Lives.

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.

Why We're Pro-Grain, Pro-Corn

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.

We publish our results in top-tier academic journals and present at major veterinary conferences.

Grains are Beneficial for Dogs

Because of our decades of nutrition research, we've seen evidence that nutritious grains like corn produce positive outcomes in dogs. Pound for pound, nutritious grains deliver more complete nutrition than the ingredients that brands typically use to substitute for grains, like potatoes. We've done the research and found that grain is an effective complement to protein for dogs.

When it comes to the nutrients dogs need, grains deliver.

· They provide antioxidants, energy-rich carbohydrate and fiber to promote digestion.

· Grains are team players. Our long-term research has shown that grains like corn are key for helping dogs digest other nutrients in their foods.

· Corn provides protein, energy and linoleic acid, which is an essential fatty acid for dogs

· Ounce for ounce, corn has twice the level of antioxidants of an apple


A Leader in Research

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.

Forging Research Partnerships

In addition to our own research, we fund work by veterinary universities around the world as well as organizations that share our high standards of care and compassion for pets.
