Diet & Nutrition DRY CAT FOOD


As a devoted cat owner, you want to ensure your cat is getting everything needed to help live a great life. So when it comes to understanding what cat food is best for your cat, it’s important to consider all of your options – including wet cat food versus dry cat food. There are many benefits to feeding your cat a high-quality wet food, like Purina® Pro Plan®. For instance:

  • Wet cat food is typically extremely high in protein*, which helps to meet a cat’s natural needs as a carnivore

  • Wet cat food mimics the variety of tastes and textures cats would find naturally in the wild – Purina® Pro Plan® offers over 35 wet entrées to choose from

  • Wet cat food contains high moisture levels, and can help a cat stay hydrated

  • Older cats can often have trouble chewing crunchy, dry cat food, making wet cat food a viable option to help them receive balanced nutrition

To get the benefits of wet cat food and dry cat food, we recommend using both for an optimal combination – dry cat food working to help keep teeth clean, and wet cat food providing the high protein, moisture and variety cats’ desire.
