For example, in 1987, Purina made its debut in pet specialty stores with Purina Pro Plan®. Pro Plan dry dog and cat formulas are made with real meat, fish or poultry as the first ingredient.* Pro Plan offers a wide variety of products scientifically formulated for each life stage. When a pet requires more specialized nutrition, Purina offers Purina Veterinary Diets®. Introduced in 1990, Purina Veterinary Diets is a full line of dry and canned formulations available exclusively through veterinarians. The innovative nature inherent in the Purina brand helped make it an internationally recognized symbol. And today, the nutritional “firsts” continue with Purina pet foods.
