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.

  • 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 Product

    By on

    Just switched over. So far so good. My 105 pound baby seems to enjoy the food and is satisfied. His sensitive tummy is tolerating it very well. And I love the fact that it is five stars on the dog food advisory site so I know I am feeding him an excellent product.

    This is my first order with Chewy, but am very happy with how everything was handled. The delivery came when it was suppose to, and ordering was nice and easy. I am looking forward to getting the dog food delivered to my home and not having to worry about carrying a 30lb bag of food! Thank you Chewy!

  • Really happy with this brand

    By on

    I've tried 4 of the Victor varieties, and all have been good for my two dogs. It's the only food my year old dog, who seems to have some sort of allergy, has tolerated. I had tried to switch to Nulo (for variety), but both dogs had soft stool and the sensitive one was super itchy. Came back to Victor brand, and right away they were both better.

  • A solution!

    By on

    I switched my 2year old Doberman to this from Taste of the Wild. Previously his coat was flakey and very frequently got soft stools (he has a very sensitive GI). After about 2months, his coat is visibly shinier, no more flakes, and he has great firm stools all the time. Also, another plus of this dog food formula is that I don't have to give him as much food either, which ultimately costs me less too! Great product!

  • Fantastic Grain Free Recipe!

    By on

    Hands down absolutely the BEST ingredients for a grain free food at a GREAT price! Just to name a few; No grains what so ever, no white potato or potato starch, no tapioca starch, canola meal, canola oil, animal digest or menadione sodium bisulfate!!!! My dog love the multi whole meat sources and gets great digestion! The glucosamine and chondroitin is great for active dogs or those with hip/joint issues. The pre and pro biotics, chelated minerals and selenium yeast keep my girl healthy and happy!

  • Excellent!

    By on

    After searching for a limited ingredient food for a new rescue I decided to switch my male Danes to this formula. As a grain free it also has the added glucosomine benefit as they are entering ages 8 and 9. The love it and have had no issues. Both Chewy and Dog Food Advisor helped me make the switch.

  • Amazing food and good for dogs with bad joints!

    By on

    My dog loves this food and I love that most of the protein comes from meat. I also love that it has added glucosamine and chondroitin for hip and joint support. My dog is a large breed mix and has a bad hip so this is important to me. He is also getting older and I hope that this food along with supplements and exercise can help keep his hip less painful and keep him more active for longer! Too early to tell if it has helped his hips but his energy level is definitely up and his coat looks great! We have tried the grain free lamb formula too and he likes that as well.

    Since I discovered Chewy.com, my life is so much simpler and I avoid traveling to pet stores 40 miles away to buy quality dog food for higher prices. Chewy delivers this to my door, free shipping, and saves me lots of headaches. I have turned my friends on to Chewy.com and they love it too. Thanks Chewy!!!
