STUDENT FOOD PROGRAM & RESIDENT FOOD PROGRAM

What is offered?

Four credits per month (one credit = one product - regardless of product weight, i.e. one bag of dry food OR one flat of canned food). You may use those 4 credits any time during the calendar month, but you may only order from Purina once per month. You may also order up to 2 boxes of canine or feline FortiFlora per month in addition to your 4 food credits. However, if you do not use your credits by the last day of the month, they will be lost. Your order will be shipped to your personal home address (cannot be shipped to a hospital) at a cost of $2 per item.

What products are offered?

You may order 4 nutrition items per month (dry and canned food):

  • Most Purina Veterinary Diets for dogs & cats are available for purchase at 30% off clinic cost
