Vibrant Maturity® 7+ Senior Formula Premium Dog Food

Purina ONE® SmartBlend® Vibrant Maturity® 7+ Senior Formula Premium Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 102.
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 5 out of 5 by from Fizbo now gets excited at meal time! I really felt like a creep, feeding my sweet dog cheap food off of the grocery store shelf. For years, I vowed I would make a serious effort to find him a healthy diet that would address the issues of an aging, bow-legged Pekinese. I literally walked the isles (5 of them) of the Pet Store that were filled from floor to ceiling with dog food. And I chose a Purina product perfect for my pup, chicken flavored...his favorite! In a few short weeks, he's a new dog; he's gained confidence, plays with his toys, adopted his own routine, and has developed a closer relationship with his "humans" . But best of all, we don't have to bribe, force, or coax him at mealtime. He's one happy pooch who loves his Purina!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have a different dog because of this dog food!!! I have a 14 year old shih Tzu dog. She would not really eat much and would sleep more, so I was looking for a different food for her to try because she wasn't herself. I went to the pet store and was looking at food. I didn't know what to do for her. That was a bad idea, there are so many dog foods especially for senior dogs and I was just dumb founded and confused on which one, so I did more research on the internet and found this dog food for her, and decided to try it for my dog. This was about a year ago, so fast forward to now and I just can't believe this is the same dog. She acts like a puppy not like she is 14 years old. She runs around barks more, just more happy. The brown pieces are hard for her to eat sometimes, but she ends up eating it all. Any one out there that doubts this, I am being totally honest, I don't usually write reviews, it took me a year to write this one, because sometimes for me I doubt a lot of what people write. I wouldn't waste my time doing this, if I didn't believe this dog food really helped my dog. Thanks Purina for helping me keep my dog a little longer and having a better quality of life for her.

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 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 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 Recent changes? I've been feeding my dogs this variety for several years. Lately I've noticed in the mix, some very large & irregular shaped pieces. I notice this mostly because my dogs don't like those pieces. The will literally eat every other kibble and pick out the large pieces. Is this a permanent change in formula? Or an anomaly? Or are my boys just being bratty? Thanks.

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 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 My kids love it. I have 5 dogs (babies) 2 are small breed. All of them except 1 are 7 years or more. One is 11 years old and has to take medicine for his knee. We basically use the senior 7 plus formula with Glucosamine, but occasionally use a smart blend with lamb just to give them a change from chicken. Plus the kibble are smaller which is better for the 2 little ones. I buy 1 kind of food for all of them instead of several different types for all of them. That gets expensive. Especially when you have 5 (all of mine are rescued from abusive/neglected situations). The only thing I would change is to make the 7 plus with Glucosamine formula in the smaller bites instead of just large breed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My vibrant Rottweiler My 11-year-old Rottweiler was really slowing down and I had to put him on a couple different NSAID and pain medications for his joint pain, but I definitely noticed a HUGE difference in his coat quality and sweet, sparkly eyes after I switched him to the Vibrant Maturity food! He absolutely LOVES the food and can't wait until breakfast, lunch and dinnertime!!! :) He also seems to have more energy to play with his toys throughout the day! We will definitely be sticking with this food!! :)

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 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 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 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 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 Big Change! I could see the difference in my two senior dogs (ages 8 & 10) within three days of switching to this brand! No more excessive scratching & they almost became puppies again! Much more playful & alert. I love to see the youthfulness return to my babies! I highly recommend this product! You'll see a change (in healthy dogs) long before the 28 day challenge is completed. Sticking with it! A nutritiously balanced product at a reasonable price. Thank you, Purina!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Both of out old timers love this food We have a 15-year-old Shiba Inu mix and a 12-year-old Chow mix. The 15-year-old had slowed down a bit with arthritis but after a few months of Vibrant Maturity he is fairly running around like a pup. Still alert and ready for fun.The 12-year-old is not feeling her age and still plays and runs like a much younger pup. They both clamor for their Vibrant Maturity and there isn't a bite left when they are done eating.For the curious the Shiba Inu is mixed with Swiss Shephard and is 30 pounds, and the Chow is 1/4 Chihuahua and 60 pounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Food I have been feeding my Mini American Purina One Vibrant Maturity 7+ for about 4 yrs and she loves its I even recommended to my neighbor after I took care of her dog while she was out of town and her dog liked Spice's food better than her Iams . Thanks Purina

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not something I would recommend I changed my 13 year old rat terrier to this product because he was beginning to slow and he grew tired of his old dog food. I fed it to him for a week and seemed ok. Then I noticed him eating less and less of the food. I also noticed this "stuff" I thought was chicken that he keeps pushing out of the bowl. I pick some of the pieces up and I can't tell if they are chicken flavored bread or potato. they have a spongy consistence and my dog hates them. So, to get him to eat any of the food, I have to pick those pieces out or he won't eat the food. Overall, I don't this this lives up to the hype. I know I won't be buying it again.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more meds My Border Collie has arthritis in his hips and has been on Rimadyl to help him out. He is 11 1/2 years old.My spaniel mix is 10 and she is a picky eater. 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 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 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 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 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 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 Excellent Our dog is a chocolate male lab and he digestive system seems to be doing much better. Prior to switching he had a lot of gas and did not seem like he felt well. His energy seems better as well as his movement. I would recommend this dog food for older dogs!
