How to pick the best Purina TOTAL CARE toy for your pet

Toys are an integral part of any pet’s wellbeing. Not only are they used to entertain your pet and assist an owner with interaction, but they can also provide comfort and security when they’re feeling nervous anxious.
Purina’s TOTAL CARE range of dog toys are divided into three categories to assist you with picking the right toy for your pet’s needs.


These are a range of push soft toys designed to give your pet comfort and security. Perfect for puppies and anxious pets who would be reassured by a “soft” toy to cuddle with.


This range of toys are made from durable rubber, latex, nylon and/or cotton rope and are designed to occupy both your dog’s mind (through chewing) and clean their teeth and gums.
Although tough in design, no toy is indestructible and it’s best to regularly review your pet’s toys for wear and tear and discard and replace if worn or damaged.


This range of toys are perfect for interacting with your pet in the backyard or park. Designed for tug-a-war, fetch and chase – they’ll stimulate your dog’s inquisitive nature as well as assist with exercising them and keeping their mind active whilst you bond with them.
Our cat toys are all include in the range “Cat Senses”.


This range of cat toys are designed to entertain your cat indoors. With shiny or crinkly material and elastic or wheels for movement, our variety of toys are designed for interaction, yet safety away from those sharp nails.
As cats all play and interact differently, the toys in our range are designed to be interactive between you and your cat. To help you create more memorable moments and bond.

If your dog has a tendency to pull the stuffing out of toys, we suggest looking at toys that do not have this component and use positive reinforcement to encourage safer play with toys like this.
