steamed – Its not about money for kibble, its about getting a quality product at a fair price and consumer education. I know kids who eat Hotdogs, McDonalds and PB&J but it not a healthy diet. ProPlan is not a 1 star dog food and there are many 4 and 5 star rated foods that cost less than ProPlan.

MAKING THE SWITCH TO PRO PLAN
Although you'll be anxious to see the difference Pro Plan can make in your dog, please allow 7 - 10 days to ease the transition from your dog’s current food. Each day, simply feed a little less of the previous food and a little more Pro Plan until you're feeding Pro Plan exclusively. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets.

A by-product is any ingredient that is produced or left over when some other product or ingredient is made (broth and gelatin are examples of meat by-products in human foods). By-products in pet foods that meet Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) guidelines come from clean animal parts other than meat, such as liver, kidneys and other organs.1 Purina® purchases all by-products from USDA-inspected plants. They must meet stringent criteria for nutrient content, production and quality assurance. o Muscle meat is deficient in many nutrients, including calcium, other minerals and vitamins. Many of these missing nutrients are abundant in meat by-products or poultry by-products
o By-products are also an excellent source of protein and amino acids
o For example, poultry by-product meal contains 60% to 70% protein and can be highly digestible2 1. Wortinger A. Nutritional myths. J Amer Anim Hosp Assoc. 2005;41(4):273—276.
2. Murray SM, et al. Raw and rendered animal by-products as ingredients in dog diets. J Nutr. 1998;128(12):2812S—2815S.It is a myth that plant-based ingredients (like corn) are poorly digested fillers that provide little nutritional value and can cause allergies.o Corn gluten meal is easy to digest, making its nutrients readily available to your pet
o Corn gluten meal contains many essential amino acids, so when it is properly combined with other protein sources, it can contribute to highly digestible and nutritious dietso Dogs and cats can develop allergies to any protein, including meats and grains. However, it is estimated that only 10% of allergic skin conditions in dogs and cats are caused by food1
o Corn does not appear on the list of most common food allergies in dogs or cats
o The most common food allergies in dogs are beef, dairy products and wheat, followed by lamb, egg, chicken and soy2
o In cats, the most common food allergies are beef, dairy products and fisho Purina's standard for all of its pet foods is grades 1 and 2 1. Outerbridge CA. Nutritional management of skin diseases.
