Amounts are recommended for adult dogs with moderate levels of activity and no adverse weather conditions. These are guidelines and should be adjusted as needed to maintain optimum body condition.

Puppies: Puppies will typically start nibbling moistened dog foods at 3 to 4 weeks of age. Feed as much as the puppy will clean up in 20 minutes in 4 feedings intervals throughout the day. You may mix with water, broth, or milk at a ratio near 3 parts food and 1 part liquid. Do not leave moistened food out for more than 30 minutes to ensure product freshness. Puppies will be weaned from milk by 8 weeks of age. Continue to feed up to 4 times per day, and within a few months, the puppies can be transitioned to a self-feeder until about 1 year of age. At this point feed so as to maintain good body condition using the feeding chart as a guide.

Pregnant and Nursing: Energy requirements are continually changing during stages of gestation and lactation and may require up to 4 times recommended levels of intake to maintain good body condition. Feed an amount needed to maintain good body condition of your female dog.

    We had been looking to switch foods for our 9 y/o GSD after he developed tummy issues on Sojos (they sold the company and I swear they switch ingredients or something that didn't settle well with him!) we tried Arcana and Orijens but they were a bit too rich for Cooper's sensitive tummy. Our trainer suggested Victor's and he even started him on the beef and rice during a boarding session. He tolerated so well, Cooper transitioned to the food in less than a week! After we picked him up sped over to our local pet store where we bought a small bag of the "Hero" blend. A good omen that there is a GSD on the bag! LOL Two days later, Cooper was off all tummy meds and back to his sassy self.

    I was looking for another dog food for my 3 dogs. My daughter has a store that sells Victor Dog Foods. After switching them to Victor I was looking for a store near me that sold it. I couldn't find one so I ordered through your company. I received it as promised! I thought for sure you would not deliver it in 2 days since we are not near a big city. Well you did and now have me for a customer:)

  • Like the glucosamine and condroitin

    By on

    My 8 year old lab got flattened by a 140 lb. mastiff puppy that wanted to play. He got up and could not put weight on his rear leg. This has resulted in ACL-dog-type surgery before at about this age for 4 previous labs. A few minutes later he could put some weight on it and then a day later he was fine. I think the glucosamine and chondroitin might have saved his joint

  • Good but plain

    By on

    I have experienced "plain" problem with the Victor food for active dogs and puppies I had purchased before this one. The Victor kibble is a little bit small, but dense, which is not a problem for my pup since he likes something crunchy. As suspected, the same problem with the flavor, "plain". Puppy sniffs at his food and only takes 1 or 2 bites, then that's it. I have to mix in the kibbles from the other brand to add more flavor, so that the pup will be able to clean up his bowl. I purchased this "boring" food mainly because its affordable price and its content of glucosamine and the right amount of protein.

  • Great for large working dogs.

    By on

    I have 2 older dogs on the Senior Weight management version. When I got a new working dog that will be maturing at approximately 90 pounds I ended up putting her on it. Considering how much improvement my other dogs made when I switched them to Victor, I decided to start her out on it and hopefully avoid some of the joint issues that could develop with a large dog. It seems to be working. She's an active 85 pound 18 month old dog.

  • GREAT DOG FOR MY GROWING DOG

    By on

    After a lot of research online looking for a good quality and affordable grain free dog food for my 9 month mix terrier princess, I chose Victor and it was the best choice for her high energy personality. Small enough for her bite size, keeps her feeling healthy and her coat is shiny. Love it. Thank u from NYC.

  • The best of the Best!!

    I have been using Victor dog food for over a year and a half and trying different bags. This one both my dogs love and they seem to have more energy too! One of my dogs, the older one, had Cushings but she acts more peppy and had a beautiful silky coat.
