Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. This ProShares ETF is subject to certain risks, including the risks that the fund may not track the performance of the index and that the fund's market price  may fluctuate, which may decrease performance. Please see summary and full prospectuses for a more complete description of risks.

The fund is subject to the risks faced by companies in the pet care industry. Although the pet care industry has historically seen steady growth and has been resilient to economic downturns, these trends may not continue or may reverse. Consumer tastes and preferences are difficult to forecast. Changing consumer preferences could have a negative impact on the revenue streams of companies in the pet care industry. Many companies in the pet care industry are small, independent producers and retailers.

Investments in smaller companies typically exhibit higher volatility. Small- and mid-cap companies may have limited product lines or resources, may be  dependent upon a particular market niche and may have greater fluctuations  in price than the stocks of larger companies. Small- and mid-cap companies  may lack the financial and personnel resources to handle economic or  industry-wide setbacks and, as a result, such setbacks could have a greater  effect on small- and mid-cap security prices.

The fund concentrates its investments in certain sectors. Narrowly focused investments typically exhibit higher volatility.
