We’ve received some feedback expressing concern about comments reportedly made by Dr Harry Cooper at a recent event. As this was not a Purina event, we thank you for your patience while we have sought more information. This afternoon Dr Harry provided a statement, which can be read here.
What we share with Dr Harry is a common vision for responsible pet ownership, with good pet nutrition as part of this. For Purina, we live this out every day through our ongoing commitment to providing quality nutrition and care to suit the needs of dogs and cats.
We recognise that finding the right pet for your situation is an important element of responsible pet ownership. In all situations, we encourage would-be pet owners to make every reasonable effort to understand the history, previous environment, and nature of an animal so they can make the best decision for themselves before giving it a home.
Further advice on how to do this is available through our partner, the Animal Welfare League Australia, and on our website here.
We love our pets as much as you do - that’s why we take all aspects of owning a pet seriously.
