Purina ONE® SmartBlend® Vibrant Maturity® 7+ Senior Formula Premium Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 89.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purina One is da bomb! My dog was diagnosed w/ CHF and the vet said to put him on a senior dog food. He was already eating Little Bites since he came off Puppy Chow. Well, as with many things, I researched before I chose a food when the vet said to just move him up to Purina Senior. I should have listened because I went to the local pet supply and got talked into getting him something from there that I had never heard of. I'm sure it is a fine dog food, but my dog didn't like it. So I went ahead and got the Purina One Vibrant Maturity and started incorporating that into the other to change him over. The stinker started picking out the other food and dropping it on the floor to get to the Purina One food so he could eat it first and most times left the other on the floor. I'm sure that was his way of protesting Ha! He loves the Purina One and doesn't dally like he was w/ the other one. He doesn't scarf it down, that has never been his MO. But he seems to enjoy now. Thank you for this product. I'm sold!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vibrant dog Long story short. My 13 year old Duke has CHF and so we went out to get another brand of dog food with high protein and no grains for seniors. It is $35 a pop. This Purina is only $22. Not sure if grain free though. Our Mr Lucky is 6 and will be 7 as of Jan 2017 so I just make the switch now. Mr. Lucky is doing half of the Purina Little Bites and half of the Purina One Vibrant Maturity. We didn't see any other senior dog food at our store and we were not willing to pay over $25 for a 12-16 pound bag either. Mr. Lucky has so much energy now and much more playful and he's been on this for food 10 days now. And it's at Half and Half. Wait 4 or 5 more days when he's off of the Little Bites and done with that and he's only on this. He loves this food. He never leaves any in his dish to save for later like Little Bites. Thank you for making this much more affordable than $35 a pop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog getting old, arthritis My SPCA pooch is 11 1/2 years old. Was having trouble with her legs. It was arthritis pain, she would yelp. Swapped from a dog food that was 1/2 the price of Purina One dry. One year one Purina One now. This is the dog food I am sticking with. Whatever is in it stopped her arthritis pain. No more yelping in pain. Also dog has more energy, is more healthy. Very good dog food. I also feed her wet Purina One. If your dog is getting arthritis, slowing down, do the switch, Purina One works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am so impressed!!! I have been a veterinary technician for 16 years. I've always "had" to push certain brands in that profession. My fur babies are getting up there at 11yrs, 10yrs and 9 yrs and I have noticed a lag in their eagerness at meal time. I decided to switch to something more reasonable on the pocketbook and something that I felt would spark their attention again. I decided on the vibrant maturity 7+ and HOLY COW! They scarfed it down in seconds!! I have now switched to feeding them twice daily because they enjoy meal times so much! I am so grateful to have made this switch and I know they are too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps my Senior from inhaling his food! I got Chevy (Pitbull/Dachshund) when he was 7 years old from the local shelter. He was very underweight, and even though he is a healthy weight now, and also 14, he still feels the need to inhale his food even after being well taken care of for 7 years. Every food he gets he has always inhaled and then consequently he was suffering from vomiting/loose stools. Every senior dog food I could find had similar sized kibble, which must have been the perfect size for him to inhale, until Purina One! The Vibrant Maturity 7+ food has very small kibbles and meaty bits, therefore my dog has learned he needs to chew! I also think the chewy meaty bits make him want to slow down and savor the flavor! This food also includes a generous joint health blend, and I have been able to take him off his joint supplements with no adverse effects! Thank you Purina One for offering this affordable food that saves my stubbornly hungry senior dog from his tummy woes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable results I honestly it was all a sales pitch. This food is really liked by my dog. She would never touch dry food even if mixed with her Caesar's wet food. Now she goes back to it all the time and is so much more ... as one reviewer said, like a puppy again. Loves to play with her toys run in the park, even get up on chair or couch to be pet and want attention again. Thank you so much for this blend and I will keep buying it for her.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My dog wants food, not kitchen sponges. I am deeply disappointed in the changes that were made to this dog food. My Yorkie-Poodle mix is currently 16 years old and has been eating this food for years. A couple years ago (not sure exactly when), there was a change made to the content of the food -- there are these new pieces along with the regular triangle pieces -- I think they are supposed to be "meat" but have the consistency of a kitchen sponge when they get moisture in them. She won't touch them. We now have to pick out all of these pieces before she will touch the food -- which has become even more annoying due to the fact that it seems every single bag we open has more and more of them in it. Half the bag gets thrown away -- such a waste of money.If she were younger, we would switch her food but, due to her age, we have chosen to continue feeding her the same diet (until we are forced to switch due to vet advice, etc). Bring back the old version!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dogs love it My dogs love the taste and gobble it up even without adding any wet food to it. I havent really seen any change in the dogs activity level or any other changes but they do love it so I will continue using it. The pieces are also smaller than Pedigree food so it makes it easier to eat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply The Best! I have fed many expensive and inexpensive foods to my dogs over the years. I never noticed a visible difference in any of them...Until NOW!I have two senior black labs, 11 and 12 yrs. Old.I have seen a HUGE change in their mental alertness, activity level, and overall zeal and zest for life! They are bouncing around like pups, and have a brightness in their eyes again! They are so zestful, I threaten to take away the new food! LOL!I can't say enough about what a great difference I've seen in my two old dogs! My 12 yrs suffers from arthritis and hip problems, she didn't want to do much..Now, she is out walking with me, even running sometimes!!!I feel strongly, if you have a senior dog, Purina One Vibrant Mature is the food to buy! I highly recommend this particular product!!!!!I can't believe what a difference this dog food has made!!!Please, please keep making it Purina!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent results for my 10+ year old dog My dog started to slow down and have some arthritis problems in his legs and would sleep a lot. I was trying to find some help for him to make him more comfortable and decided to take the 28-day challenge when i read about the new product: PURINA ONE® SMARTBLEND®VIBRANT MATURITY® 7+ SENIOR FORMULA PREMIUM DOG FOOD. After about 7 days, there was marked improvement and he acts like a 6 month old puppy. Plays hard and sleeps deeply. The coconut oil is a miracle ingredient for my dog and although at first he started to put on a bit of weight from it, the new found activity he gains more than compensated for keeping him fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Blue Heeler Has Come Back To Life Again Our 12yr. old Blue Heeler "Maggie Mae" had lost all her energy. She had been in a accident at age 3 which crushed her pelvis and hip. After 2 surgeries , a metal plate and screws, she bounced back but at age 12 she had to have surgery for cancer. This time she just wasn't bouncing back to her old self. She just laid around with no energy. That's when I saw the commercial for the Purina challenge and decided to give it a try. I was a little skeptical that a food could offer such a change in your dog. Within 2 weeks of gradually switching her over we could see a major difference. At the end of the 28 days she is back to her normal self again. There's no looking back !She will continue this food and we would recommend it to anyone! Thank you Purina for saving our dog!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge difference in Mobility We have two "puppies" who are over the age of 10. One is a 90 lb. Chocolate Lab, the other a medium sized Jack Russell/Shiba Inu mix. Our lab especially was slowing down and having trouble moving easily like he did when he was younger. We were feeding the Purina One 7+ Maturity blend for almost a year, when we decided to switch to a different brand that was supposed to be "better". Within only a week, we noticed that both dogs were having difficulty getting up and down, walking and just in general, seemed as if they were having pain in their joints. We switched them back to the 7+ Maturity blend, and within only 2 DAYS, they are back to their happy go lucky selves ~ running around the yard and playing much better! It is amazing the difference that this food makes for them. We were skeptical as to whether or not this blend really made that much difference, but after seeing this dramatic change, we are completely convinced that this is an awesome food for our puppies. Thanks so much for helping our babies keep their mobility, sharpness of mind, and happy, wagging tails!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best food I've found for my older dog My 16 year old dog was having gastrointestinal problems and her energy and activity levels were decreasing. Our vet suggested we change her food and recommended Purina brands, so we switched her to Purina One Smart Blend Vibrant Maturity 7+ Formula. Our dog loved the food so there was no problem making the switch and within just a few days her stomach issues subsided, and her energy and activity levels increased. After just a month onV ibrant Maturity, her activity and energy levels are back to where they were 2 or 3 years ago. And to quote her vet, "She is certainly spry for her age."

Thank You So Much,Lucinda

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Golden Retriever approved! I have a 7 year old Golden Retriever and decided to try the Purina One for Senior dogs. I had her try the other flavors of Purina One via FREE Sample and coupon I received. My dog seems to really love the flavor, I see a difference in her coat and eyes. She completed the Purina one 28 day challenge I went out and purchased more since she loved the food.I would highly recommend this product, the value is worth the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Senior Dog Loves It My 7 year old Boxer loves her food. We changed over to Purena 1 Vibrant Maturity shortly after we got her. She had joint pain and now can jump around with the best of them. She also enjoys when I moisten it and soften the pieces as she has only a few teeth left. She has no problem eating it this way and always looks forward to mealtime. We will feed her Purena 1 Vibrant Maturity for whatever time she has left as she was diagnosed with a brain tumor shortly after we got her. Only the best for her.

They were eating Purina dog chow. So I switched to Purina One Active Maturity.My Border Collie is off his Rimadyl and is playing like a puppy. I no longer have to mix wet food with the dry to get my spaniel mix to eat. She inhales it.Thank you Purina for this food. Our pups are happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 15-year old Golden thrives! We started using vibrant maturity Purina One when our golden retriever, Molly, was about 8 years old. I heard a vet on a talk radio show say that this dog food has all the nutrients and supplements that older dogs need. I can honestly say that our 15-year old acts like a puppy after she gets warmed up in the morning!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vibrant maturity I have a 12 year old chihuahua that I switched from Purina Dog Chow to Purina One Vibrant Maturity. She would have bouts of back pain occasionally. She has not had any issues with her back since the switch. I'm sold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made a big difference My Australian Shepherd, Chance, is 9 years old. The last year or so he has developed arthritis and slowed down considerably. His weight was also a little more than I would like. This past summer I noticed that his skin was flaking and his coat had become dull. I knew something had to be done. I did some research online and decided that Purina One Vibrant Maturity would be a good choice after reading the information provided and customer reviews. I am pleased to say that he has improved on all counts. He is more active and eager to play. I do see some improvement in his coat and skin though he does have a way to go yet. And he must like it because he cleans it up everyday. Something he didn't always do before. I am pleased with the results and feel he will continue to improve. I would definitely recommend it to others who have older dogs who have lost their pep. I feel like I have my happy buddy back again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sr. Maturity is great for joint pain! I have two rescue dogs. One is an American Foxhound mix (12 years old) and the other a German Short Haired Pointer (8 years old). When we rescued the Pointer, she was only 1 year old, but was limping horribly. Our Foxhound was 5 years old and eating Purina One Lamb and Rice and loving it; but, I switched both dogs to Sr. Maturity, hoping it might help my Pointer. It did! Within a few weeks, her limping stopped. Sr. Maturity is great! Both dogs eat the senior food and are in fabulous health - even the 12 year old! No one believes she is 12! Buy this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm not sure she chews she eats it so fast! I have absolutely seen a significant improvement in my 10 year old Borador (Border Collie/Lab), her spunk and spurts of energy last longer and are more frequent! She had a fairly sensitive tummy before this food and she's great all around, I'm very happy and have been persuasively suggesting to all my friends with senior age dogs! I will forever be using this brand for her and the many future dogs I will have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Capering 16 yo Aussie I have always fed a standard no-color-added kibble to my dogs, who kept good weight and lived long. Skye (born Oct. 1998, adopted Aug 2000) was settling into his senior years in good health, no apparent arthritis or cancer, when this spring a friend gave me a bag of PurinaONE Vibrant Maturity. I tossed it into the bin, noticed the amount of chicken shreds, and gave it gradually. A week went by when I noticed HE WAS PLAYING TUG! He was jumping over a slower playmate, he was cantering around my back yard. I will continue to feed it to him until he dies, if ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for our bordie collie We have tried various highly rated, costly dry foods for our eight year old bordie collie. He couldn't tolerated them, developing digestive issues and skin irritations. We put him on Purina One Lamb and Rice last year, then switched to Vibrant Maturity +7 last month. He has had no issues with it.I'd like to see it made with lamb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Answer to our Prayers Our 14 year old Jack Russel Tarrier (Napoleon) has had a rough go as of late. His thyroid has begun to act up and he went from a healthy 16 pounds to 26 pounds. Well we started looking for a replacement for his other name brand food and came across Purena's Vibrant Mateurity formula. We are proud to say that our Napoleon is gonna be around with us for a few more years. Not only does he love the flavor, he has lost 8 pounds and is acting like his old self again. Also he poops alot less cause there are less fillers and his body uses it all up for nutrition...Switched our other pets to Purena One and great results as well (:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refreshing to see him eat again! We were getting so upset night after night of seeing our 12 year old springer spaniel, Friday's dish still full. I was starting to worry about him losing appetite as a result of aging/poor health. He seemed to have lost interest in eating. I picked up a bag of this for a change and he devoured it. It's nice to see him clean his bowl like a puppy again! The added glucosamine is a bonus as it's helping his limp. Thank you Purina!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs like this most of the time My dogs have ALWAYS been on Purina One, and now are on the Vibrant Maturity Senior food. Most of the time they will gobble it up, but there are times where I mix it with warm water to make a gravy or mix a can of the Purina One wet food in with it to entice them even more! It would be nice if they'd stop making the bags smaller and smaller and charging more though.
