Pro Plan we can really only find at PetSmart as to where Purina One is found in supermarkets and grocery stores. However, I have not checked out the ingredients is there any differance. Purina One is a little easier to come but, In the same sentance it is also more expensive becuase you only get a 3.5lb bag instead of a 4 lb jug. Is ther ea differance in the nurtrition part of it. Are they around the same. I just want some opinions.

IMO Pro Plan might be better than One but If you have some more choice I would rather go on another better kind of food.
I didn't look onto the ingredients from both thought.

IMO, Pro Plan is better. Both are mid-quality foods, though.

IMO pro plan is on the higher end of the quality scale then purina one. I had tried both and found my coat is healther and shiny on the pro plan. If your only option is the grocery store then I would say the purina one would be your best pet. The pro plan can also be found at petco or you can order it online at petco.com. Sometimes they not only have it on sale they offer free shipping. That is when mom gets it a lot of time for us.
