by TeddysMomandDad 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.

by Billh 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.

by adcoblue 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.

by Deborah8 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!

by PeppersMama07 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!

by Suz1453 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!

by PhoebesMom 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.

by Stephanie98058 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!

by Wolfie5219 Old Man's favorite Our Menchi is 12 years old. About 6 years ago he had to start taking Epilepsy medication and the vet said that it would age him and therefore probably die younger than most dogs of his breed (lab/great dane mix). Great Danes live 6-8 years and labs 11-12 years so he is doing really well on the Purina One for Mature dogs we have been feeding him since he has been taking the meds.I wouldn't feed him anything else.

by MaxsOwner Great food for a Picky Boston My picky Boston loves this food, he wasnt one to eat dry food with out water in it. However he loves this food and will finish his bowl. it has done a great deal of help on his joints. The glucoseamine in it helps his joints and so much more easier than trying to get him to take a pill.... Great Job Purina

But thanks to Vibrant Maturity 7+ he has lost 6 lbs. and although he still has trouble at times walking and getting up I have noticed he is more alert and will try to chase a squirrel or 2.Thank You So Much,Lucinda October 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mae63 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." October 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cbell My dog loves this food I transitioned my Dog to this food after using another brand for 7.5 years. Over a month I slowly integrated the Purina One into her regular nutritional routine. My Dog has gestational issues and never once did she experience any difficulties. Today she enjoys her meals and maintains a healthy profile. As an older Dog, this seems to be the best choice. Thanks Purina. October 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by khays 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!! June 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Alimc TRULY AMAZING I started giving this food to my 13 year old overweight lab mix a few months ago per my dog sitter. She had been experiencing a lot of leg problems due to arthritis, overall lack of energy and just disconnect. I honestly thought this would probably be her last year with us. After a few months on this food she is literally a different dog. She jogs, plays, enjoys being social again and hasn't limped once. She just finished a 20 minute walk that ended with a steep incline AND she beat my younger dog. I can NOT recommend this product enough!!! It has truly changed her life for the better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nikki83 Quality Food My Dog LOVES! My dog turned 7 this past June and she wasn't doing very well, health wise. She was on a different brand of food. I brought her to her vet and I found out she has Hypothyroidism. The vet recommended I put her on medicine and switch her to quality food for her age and I gotta say, she is a whole new dog! She is the happiest I have ever seen her and she sure loves mealtimes! If I knew then what I know now I would have had her on Purina the very first day I got her! I have everyone I know feeding their animals(fur babies)Purina! P.S.-My cats eat and LOVE Purina now too! September 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Houdini99 I recommend this product We have 3 senior dogs. They were acting sluggish and did not interested in much. Since we have completed the 28 days they wake up full of energy in the morning and look forward to their morning walk even if the weather is not good. Mentality they sare very alert and interested in learning and enjoy their toys. September 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nursval3 My dogs love it! I found my dogs not eating other foods but always wanting food. I switched to this and they love it!! They eat appropriate amounts for their size (chihuahua mix) and don't beg for andditional feedings. Plus the size is perfect for their little mouths. August 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by PitMixRescuer 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! March 20, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by VickiFL Needs less of the soft pieces I have a 14 yr old yellow lab who has been enjoying your product for 7yrs. I have been noticing however it appears more and more of the bag is filled with the soft pieces versus the crunchy pieces. My dog does not like the soft pieces and literally picks them out of her dish and spits them out onto the floor. I end up throwing them away. I have been out of a job since April 1 and can't afford to be throwing dog food away. Can you make it with more of the crunchy pieces the way it used to be? Thanks July 31, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Brianna 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!!!!! August 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Darleen 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. November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by CSG0407 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! November 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Midge Almost like a miracle My 16yr, old mini Doxi was failing & I thought it was time to have him put down. I decided to try Purina one Vibrant Maturity 7+ after about 4 months I began to see a difference & now after 1year the difference is unbelievable. He can play with his companion dog & he even runs & bounces, something he had not done for months prior to eating Vibrant Maturity . I highly recommend this food if you have a senior dog, I'm sure you will see a difference to the good. Thank you Purina. July 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by grammy3197 My dogs love it I have a black lab mix and a rat terrier mix, both rescues and both about 7 years old. I switched from Healthy Weight formula to Vibrant Maturity about a year ago. Both dogs love the food and seem to be doing really on it. They are active, have had no health problems and maintained a good weight. June 20, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cricket 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! November 14, 2012
