Ingredient-wise, ProPlan is far superior to Purina One in my opinion.

Ditto-not sure about the ethoxyquin. Others who feed this food will be able to answer this.

From what I recall a while back I believe that both of them contain ethoxiquin.

this is reply from purina:

Thank you for contacting Nestlé Purina PetCare Company.

We appreciate your interest in our products. Purina ONE(r) brand Dog Food and Purina(r) Pro Plan(r) brand Dog Foods are very similar. They are our super-premium products. This means that they will all contain a real meat as the first ingredient. With a real meat as the first ingredient, they are both highly digestible, nutrient dense (so feeding amounts are lower and your pet maintains more of the nutrients in a smaller serving amount), promote healthy skin and hair coat and produce a firmer smaller stool volume. Both products contain no added artificial color, and are preserved with mixed tocopherols, a natural antioxidant and form of Vitamin E from vegetable oils, rather than commonly used chemical preservatives. Similarly, both will help promote healthy skin, shiny coat resulting from 100% complete and balanced nutrients including Vitamin E, A and Omega 6 fatty acids, and provide optimal protein and essential amino acid levels necessary to help maintain muscles and lean body mass.

The major differences are in the exact order of ingredients, or formulation of each product, the kibble size and shape, types of formulas offered, and availability. Pro Plan offers a full line of puppy formulas (including formulas for Puppy, Large Breed Puppy, Small Breed Puppy and Giant Breed Puppy). Purina ONE does not offer giant or small breed products. Pro Plan is found solely at pet specialty stores while ONE can be found at most retailers that sell pet foods.

Please remember, that if you decide to change your dog's diet, it should be done gradually over a 7-10 day period by adding small amounts of the new food to the food the pet is currently being fed. The first day, we recommend mixing 10 percent of the new food with 90 percent of the current food. Each day, increase the amount of the new food while decreasing the amount of the current food. A gradual diet change will help prevent a refusal to eat or digestive upset, which often occurs when sudden changes are made in a pet's diet.

We hope this information is helpful and that you will let us know if you have any other questions.

Again, thank you for visiting our web site.

They do that "politician" talk....Iams did the same when I emailed a request to outline the difference between Iams and Eukanuba. They can't say one is higher quality then another...and they can't say they are the same quality.
