FEEDING PUPPIES:

Puppies will typically start nibbling moistened dog foods at 3 to 4 weeks of age. Feed as much as the puppy will eat in 20 minutes in 4 feeding intervals spaced throughout the day. May be mixed with water, broth or milk at a ratio of 3 parts food to 1 part liquid. To ensure product freshness, do not leave moistened food out for more than 30 minutes. Puppies will be weaned from milk by 3 weeks of age. Continue to feed up to 4 times per day. Within a few months, the puppies may be transitioned to a self-feeder. After age one, feed to maintain good body condition, using the feeding chart as a guide.

PREGNANCY AND NURSING:

Energy requirements continually change during stages of gestation and lactation and may require up to four times recommended levels of intake. Adjust amount of food provided to maintain good body condition of your female dog.

TIPS ON TRANSITIONING TO VICTOR:

When changing from a different food to any VICTOR dog food formula, transition your dog to VICTOR over the course of one week to 10 days, gradually increasing the amount of VICTOR every few days.

Keep fresh water available at all times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for our German Shepherd puppy!
By R. Pearson on March 4, 2019
We have a 4 1/2 month old Czech German Shepherd, and we switched her to Victor Active on January 18th. She came home from the breeder on a raw food diet that was supplemented with Taste of the Wild High Prairie Puppy. We slowly transitioned her off the raw food. Since we got her, her skin was very dry, and as we transitioned her off of raw food and completely onto the kibble, her coat became more and more dull, and her skin even more dry. We made the decision to try Victor Grain-Free Active Puppy and Beef kibble. We began to transition her on January 17th, and within about 10 days, her skin was beginning to get better, and her coat began to shine about 2 weeks after introducing it. She has been on it now for 6 1/2 weeks and no longer has any dandruff at all. Her entire coat is thick and shiny, and even strangers remark on it. She has also maintained steady growth, is very fit and has gained muscle tone, and she LOVES meal time!

Picture 1 (sunrise): 2/3/18, 17 days after beginning Victor her coat is really beginning to shine and her dandruff is gone.

Picture 2 (at the vet): 1/23/18, 6 days after beginning Victor. She was still getting the old kibble mixed in as we transitioned her over about a week. Her coat was very dull, and she still had a lot of dandruff, to the point that the vet was concerned.

Picture 3 (under couch): 1/8/18, prior to starting Victor. I chose this picture because you can see quite a bit of dandruff if you look closely.

5.0 out of 5 stars We are quite satisfied with the results
By Keith on November 21, 2017
Our pup came home at 9 weeks having been started on Victor. We are quite satisfied with the results, our German Shepherd pup loves this food, she is a long haired shepherd and her coat is shiny and smooth. Her stools are well formed and no issues with gas or diarrhea. We will continue to purchase Victor products.

5.0 out of 5 stars Least expensive 5 Star Grain Free Food
By Joseph & Angela on March 8, 2018
Amazing 5 star food! Makes the list of 5 star foods on dogfoodadvisor.com That's enough for me. You can feed it to your puppy to your senior dog. Look at all that meat! Read the label folks. I have been feeding this for over half of my SEVENTEEN year olds life. He has never once been sick and gets around fine other than a little bit of arthritis.
