Questions & Answers

38 Customer Questions

Where is the 25% of protein sourced from that doesn't come from the US? Thanks!
Answer by ChewyOct 30, 2017
The manufacturer will source their high-quality ingredients within the United States depending on availability. However, certain ingredients will need to be outsourced (i,e: Lamb, Venison, Duck, Rabbit, Vitamin Packs, etc.) to ensure top quality and freshness while meeting a reasonable price point for pet parents.

Can you all post on the amount of food to feed puppies at various weights up to age 1 year? The bag only lists adult dogs amounts.
Answer by ChewyDec 02, 2017
Puppies will typically start nibbling moistened dog foods at 3 - 4 weeks of age. Feed as much as the puppy will clean up in 20 minutes in 4 feeding 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.

Is this AFFCO certified for large breed puppies?
Answer by ChewySep 26, 2018
This product is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for All Life Stages including large breed puppies. The bags are undergoing a packaging change to reflect this specifically.

What preservative do you use to extend the freshness of the kibble? What do you coat the kibble with?
Answer by ChewyApr 18, 2018
VICTOR is made with only Natural Plant Based Preservatives. A unique blend of mixed tocopherols for superior free radical absorption and of botanically-sourced antioxidants are added to the protein and fat ingredients used to stabilize and naturally prevent oxidative damage. No artificially based preservatives are added to their product.

Finally a food that works

The breeder originally recommended this brand. Being a first time pet parent, I of course did not listen lol. I have tried several puppy foods now (and one adult food... first time pet parent mistake #2). My puppy would eat certain ones a few times, then just starve herself a day or two until she was so hungry she had to eat more. Obviously not good for something growing so fast. This forced me to use wet food, but that was not a habit I wanted to deal with for a decade. Low & behold, this food finally worked. She eats it plain, the entire recommended feeding too. I do add salmon oil as a supplement too. I dislike that it has chicken in it, since she has sensitivities to it. But at this point, just having her eat a normal diet is way more important to her health than avoiding a certain ingredient. I will deal with that once her growth levels off. I recommend this brand for picky eaters.

Pup did NOT like this brand

Well, I did a ton of research on the best dog foods, as I have a [large silver lab] dog with food sensitivies, gut issues, and skin issues. The ingredients seemed good, so I ordered a bag of this and transitioned my pup into it. He did NOT like it and would absolutely not eat it. This is unfortunate, as it took a LONG TIME for the bag to be gone - and it was expensive. When we transitioned him to American Journey, Pup would eat the AJ food and leave the Victor. Not sure if he's a picky thing or if this was just gnarly-tasting.

2 dogs down

This is the second time I've tried this food. I wanted to like this brand. I've only heard good things from breeders, The first dog last year wouldn't touch it and this Second dog hasn't stopped having horrible runny stool. Our vet has recommended sensitive food for this Newest dog.

Perfect dog food

My dog Kevin is a 7 lb yorkie/bichon puppy. He gobbled this up. His fur has started looking very glossy and his energy level has gone up since starting this food

Proven trial

I took in a rescue March 9th. Turns out she was pregnant. May 3rd, she had 6 beautiful, healthy puppies. I put her on Victor Food when she came here to live with me and I truly believe this food gave her such healthy, strong puppies. I switched her to the Active Dog & Puppy type and she looks so healthy. I can not say enough good things about what this food has done for my precious girl and her babies. At 2 weeks old, their coat is already full and slick! These are small breed dogs. My daughter raises Plott hounds and told me about this food! AMAZING!

Dry dog food

My greyhound has GI issues with grains and chicken/turkey. This brand Victor is grain free and he loves it. Healthy, shiny coat and no GI upset.

Victor grain free dry dog food for dogs and puppies

Our puppy somewhat enjoys this brand of puppy food. She is a bit picky but will go back and finish it within 20-25 minutes. We purchased this brand because it's made in the USA and is made with real meat.

New food for our puppy

Our breeder highly recommended Victor for our new puppy and our older dog as well. They seem to like it!

Victor Only

As far as I know, Victor dog and puppy foods have never been on a recall list!! The fact that it stays on Dog Food Advisor's list of best foods for dogs and puppies, plus the fact that it's made right here in Texas, makes it a keeper. And all my dogs love it.

Long lead time

Food appears to be accepted by my 2 Springers . However, it took over a week for the delivery. With summertime approaching probably will not order from Chewy to avoid the long exposure to Heat
