Lead the Industry in Pet Nutrition and Health Research

Our Goals

We will launch 16 new products focused on improving the health and wellbeing of pets.

We will share our research by publishing four articles a year in technical journals.

Our Point of View: Purina, Research, and Nutrition

We are a company of pet lovers, from our scientists and nutritionists to our marketing and sales people. We are dedicated to understanding pets’ nutritional, behavioural and social needs and focused on doing everything we can to keep them healthy and happy. We fundamentally believe that scientifically-proven, good quality nutrition is essential to pets’ wellbeing. That’s why, since the start of the company and through all our activities, we’ve kept true to our promise of high quality nutrition, proven science and results. At Purina, nutrition takes centre stage.

As one of the leading pet care companies in the world, we’ve made significant investment into science, innovation and pet understanding. We have a responsibility to pets, and their owners, to use this knowledge and pet food research, as well as our development know-how, to push the boundaries and continue to develop diets including ones for pets with special needs and those requiring veterinary-prescribed nutrition.

In 2015, we launched a new Diabetes diet for diabetic cats and a new dental product in our Pro Plan Veterinary diets range and a new product specifically for sterilised senior cats (Sterilised Adult 7+) in our Pro Plan Cat range. Working in partnership with respected colleagues and veterinary leaders worldwide we are excited by the prospect of leading the industry in improving the health and wellbeing of pets.
