I have fed Victor Professional Formula to my 6-year-old red Doberman since she was 8 weeks old. I have always stood by this brand and formula for my dog because she always had a gorgeous, shiny coat and was the picture of perfect health. However, within the past 6 months or so, her coat has become dull and lackluster. And she has started shedding, which she has never done. Even her eyes seem dull, and she doesn’t seem to have as much energy. After reading other comments, I suspect that the ingredients in the Victor Professional Formula have changed. For the price point, I expect the highest quality ingredients from the manufacturer. I have to do my best to ensure that she is healthy and getting the best possible nutrition, so I will be searching for a brand with better quality ingredients.
I am a professional German Shepherd breeder we breed high-energy working GSDs we have been using this product for year's the quality of the product shows in all of our dogs we have had as many as 17 to 20 German Shepherds of all ages not to mention countless litters their stools are tight, small and black a true sign of the dog absorbing all the nutrients We have used countless amounts of other brands of high-quality foods but have had always the best results with Victor our dogs devoured this food We highly recommend this product
I adopted a puppy from Oklahoma who was on this food, his coat was soft and shiny and the reviews sounded ok..so I decided to leave him on it. The ingredients were questionable to me, I don't super love the blood meal in there. And while his poop is firm, this dog poops like 10 times a day....... the last straw for me is since coming home to Colorado he is all dry and dandruffy now...yes I get its a drier climate...but he doesn't look the best he could and I believe its due to this food. Looking for a new food!
Started a new bag of this food a week ago and the puppy has had diarrhea since. We were using this food because this is what the breeder was feeding the puppies. I wanted to keep the same food as the breeder was using to prevent stomach upset. The first bag I got was from a local store and there were no problems. I started using this new bag about a week ago and diarrhea set in. At first I assumed that the puppy had eaten something out side that had upset it's stomach. I cut back on the food and started giving some rice with the food to help bind the dogs stomach up to stop the diarrhea. Called the vet and gave the puppy some meds to help with the diarrhea but this did not work as well. I started looking at the food more closely. I was surprised how hard it was. I could not break it using only my hands so I used a round disk meat pounder to try to crush it. It did not crush easily. I'm six feet tall and 190 lbs and it took a good amount of pressure to crush one piece of kibble. I started to wonder how a puppy's stomach could digest something so hard. The next thing I tried was to grinding up some kibble in a food processor and feed her using some of the ground up kibble with rice, More diarrhea. The next thing I tried was to let the kibble soak in water to soften it before feeding it to her. I was amazed how long it took for the food to fully soften. All of the kibble I have used before would turn to mush in about 10 minutes of soaking it in water. Not so with this food. After 10 minutes only a thin layer of the outside was soft so I let it sit in water for two hours. Finally it softened. The result was more diarrhea. I had had enough so I went out and bought puppy food in the brand I have been using for many years. Finally the diarrhea ended. Not sure what happened to this batch of food but something changed to cause the diarrhea. From now on I'll stick to the brand I know and trust.
We switched my dog over to VICTOR Classic Professional Formula Dry Dog Food because we thought the protein content and ingredients were high enough quality for him. He had been eating this food for about a week before he developed bleeding sores on his gums and rear. After a few expensive vet visits, our doctor determined it was a moderate antigenic reaction caused by the VICTOR kibble. I'm not sure if this was a bad batch or if our dog requires a sensitive diet, but needless to say, we switched him back to Hill's Science Diet immediately. I submitted a comment to Chewy and their customer service team issued us a full refund for this food, which we greatly appreciate. Save yourself and your dog the risk; avoid this food and opt for a brand that is backed by veterinary science.
I have 5 large dogs that I have been feeding Victor Professional to for a few years now. Recently, 2 of my dogs are having severe itching (they are scratching all over constantly, to the point of having bleeding sores). As soon as I stopped feeding this food the itching and scratching stopped. I would not recommend this food anymore, obviously something in their formula has changed.
I really want to like this food, but after some of our dogs developed diarrhea on it, I got looking at the ingredient list more closely. Tetrasodium pyrophosphate is one of the ingredients for this food, and actually all Victor foods. It is known to cause nausea and diarrhea. Victor, why do you have this in your food. Please remove it, so we can go back to feeding it.
I get this food often but usually locally. This time I thought I would take advantage of ordering online, never again. Had little brown worms everywhere. 40 lb bag straight in the trash. Very disappointed
Our dogs have been eating this food for years with no issues! We have two Great Danes (1.5 years and 4 months) and a Pit/Dane mix. It has everything our dogs need. We found if we add a sprinkle of Probios or add water, it brings out the flavor more when they won't eat. Imagine if you ate the same meal all the time ;-)
I tried this because it was more reasonable than what I usually buy and my breeder told me that the quality is excellent. But my fussy Collie turned his very long nose up at it. :-)
