Purina makes great dog food and products. Our dog loves his food, almost as much as human food, ha. We tried switching once, but he wasn’t having it.

My dog has eaten Purina ONE since he was a puppy. He loves it and never gets sick of it. We have recently switched food to Science Diet (Doctor's orders), but Purina was good to him and he loved it since his puppy years! Our Cat still eats Purina Cat Chow and it's absolutely the only food she eats!

My kitties devoured the new Purina Purely Fancy Feast Filets. Unlike other cat foods where the fish doesn't smell fresh, you could tell in Purina's food everything was made fresh and they loved it. I have already stocked the kitty food cabinet with more because of how fast they ate it

I Obviously have no idea what this taste like but my dog seems to like it. The value is good. I will say it’s not the cheapest one you can buy but it does seem like my dog likes it more than Walmart brand. I guess it’s a trusted company because I’ve seen her around for so many years and it’s what my parents used for our pets

Our 87lb black lab is straight muscle and hungry! She loves her Purina Dog Chow. We feed her twice a day and her coat is healthy and shiny and she is in great health. The cost is hands down the reason we choose Purina - so much more for the same cost of other brands for half the amount. Some will argue the ingredients are inferior to other brands, but we’ve tried some of the more expensive brands and didn’t notice any difference in her coat or her behavior.
