Feline Pro Plan Restage FAQs

Why did you make the packaging change? 

  • We wanted to make it easier to shop our entire line so that you can more easily find the right products for your cat
  • Inspired by our cats’ natural greatness, we offer a complete line of dry formulas, wet entrées and snacks, to help them live a healthy, engaging life.

Have you added or removed any ingredients from the formulas? 

  • The only ingredient changes to the formulas were the addition of natural caramel color to the two Adult Savor Formulas (Chicken & Rice and Salmon & Rice).  

I see that you’ve changed the order of some of the ingredients, why?

  • We routinely optimize our formulas to help ensure nutritional consistency in our Pro Plan Formulas.  
  • Because the nutrient content of our raw materials may vary slightly from time to time, in order to deliver nutritional consistency, the amounts of certain ingredients in the formula may vary slightly over time.  
  • Just to be clear, the slight changes are to ensure that we consistently deliver the nutritional excellence our consumers come to expect.

What’s new with the brand?
We know that every cat is different in her own, wonderful way. So, we separated our line into three new categories to make it easier to find the nutritional offering that is the right one for your cat.

Why are you adding color to the foods in Savor line?

  • We have added caramel coloring to improve the look of our dry products in the Savor line.  The caramel used is a natural ingredient and has no effect on the taste or nutrition of these products

What is the benefit of a cat food having 45% protein?

  • Since cats are natural carnivores, they require higher levels of protein in their diets, which helps support an adult cat’s lean body mass.  

Will the increased amount of protein in the Finesse products make my cat hyper?

  • No, we would not expect any of our formulas to make your cat overly energetic.

Where is the trout sourced from?

  • Our trout is sourced within North America.

Is it ocean caught or farm raised?

  • We use fresh water rainbow trout that is farm raised.  

Is there a benefit of feeding my cat trout over salmon?

  • Both salmon and trout are great sources of animal protein for cats.  There are no known differences in feeding trout versus salmon to your cat.

6.Will any of the Sport formulas make my dog hyper?
No, we would not expect any of our formulas to make your dog hyper.  
7.Why are there three levels of protein and fat in the Sport Platform?
The Pro Plan Sport product platform offers three different formulas (Active 26/16, Advanced  28/18 and Performance 30/20) because research has shown that different activity levels of sprinting, endurance and intermediate benefit from different percentages of the calories from protein, fat and carbohydrates.
8.How do I determine which Sport Formula would be best for my dog?
•30/20-The Performance Formula 
oFeed to hardworking dogs: Hunting, field trials, fly ball, agility, diving dog competitions, show dogs
oFine-tuned nutrition to promote strength and endurance.  
oA 30% protein to 20% fat ratio, helps optimize oxygen metabolism for competitive canine athletes.
•28/18-The Advanced Formula
oFeed to dogs that take long runs, rigorous hikes and dock diving at the lake
o28% protein and 18% fat helps nourish muscle after exercise and maintain lean muscle mass.
oIt is fine-tuned nutrition to promote strength and endurance,
•26/16-The Active Formula
oFeed to dogs that take evening walks, play frequent games of fetch and take trips to the dog park
o26% protein and 16% fat ratio helps fuel metabolic needs and maintain lean muscle mass for everyday exercise.
9.How does the 26/16 Active Sport Formula differ from other Pro Plan formulas that offer the same 26/16 protein to fat ratio? 
The formulas are different in ingredients, flavor, caloric density and product guarantees.  For example, our Active 26/16 is higher in caloric density than other Pro Plan dry dog varieties with 26% protein and 16% fat formulas.  The more energy dense the food is, the less voluminous the stool, which is advantageous in exercising dogs.  
Also, Active 26/16 does not contain beef, lamb, salmon, canola meal, cassava root flour, oat meal, or salmon, which are ingredients found in other Pro Plan dry dog formulas that have 26% protein and 16% fat.   
Active 26/16 has a higher guaranteed level of glucosamine -- 400 ppm vs. 250 ppm for Small Bites Lamb & Rice. 
10.Can the 2% differences in the protein to fat ratios really make a difference in my dog’s metabolism and endurance?
Research has shown that different activity levels of sprinting, endurance and intermediate benefit from different percentages of the calories from protein, fat and carbohydrates.  The difference in the protein to fat ratios, along with your dog’s activity level, will help determine which formula will help meet your dog’s needs.
