    Default Purina Pro Plan grain free?

    In a conversation with a the Purina rep in Canada it is my understanding that Purina has a grain free dog food available in the US.
    I have been on their website and have not seen such a product advertised.
    Has anyone seen or heard of their product?

    I saw that food and for the price there are so many better foods. I was very surprised that Purina muffed that one especially being the last to the market with a grain free food. They were able to see all the competition first. $2.50lb for a 26/16 food loaded with peas and canola seed is a tough sell.

    Dr. Tim's Grain Free is a great choice for sporting dogs, 32/18 and lots of meat protein.

    Purina stayed out of the market because there is no reason in the world to feed *most* dogs grain free foods, except for the few that have medical issues with grains. They generally base their marketing decisions on canine nutrition, not on marketing hoopla. But when it became apparent that "grain free" is here to stay, necessary or not, they joined in with a product of their own.
