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 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 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 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 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 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

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 4 out of 5 by Les360 a dog food that makes all of us happy I have an old, old dog. She's a rescue so her age is a guess but the vet thought she was about 3 years old when she joined the family and that was 15 years ago. As you can imagine, she's slowing down and experiencing a lot of those old age creeks and kinks. We've had her on some fancy grub that is good for her but that she hates - we have to "dress it up" before she eats it but it has seemed to help so we happily go through the hassle.I got a sample of Purina ONE® SmartBlend from Smiley360 to try for our other dogs - the old gal couldn't keep her face out of their bowls. So we looked around (and around and around) and found the PURINA ONE VIBRANT MATURITY® 7+ SENIOR, finally. I do wish there were some flavor options for the seniors and I wish it was a little easier to find in shops.She gobbles it down, we can even use pieces of kibble as treats. She has only been eating it for a few weeks but I have to admit that her coat which is usually soft and shiny seems even softer and shinier! And she seems to do just as well with the creaks and aches as she did with the pricier brand that she hated but we made her eat anyway because it was "good" for her.Our dog wants to enjoy meal time. We want her to be as vital and healthy as she can be. Thanks for making a dog food that makes all of us happy. November 5, 2015
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 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 AnnieRose Our Siberian Husky loves this food Our furry family member, Annie Rose, loves this food. She is almost 12 years old and goes out and plays, at day care, with dogs that are only 1-5 years old (sometimes older) and is able to keep up with them. The newer workers, at Dogtopia, think she's only about 4 years old. Our vet also says how healthy she is and would also say she's about 5 years old, due to her great shape.Annie Rose free-feeds and it works well for her. We have tried her on different foods and she loves this one the best. October 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cindyb Amazing results My 16 year old dachshund was declining rapidly. He had lost his eyesight, hearing, and was losing his balance. We started him on Purina One Senior food, and within two weeks I could see a change in him. He seemed to be able to hear what was going on, I didn't have to get in front of him and clap my hands to get his attention. He has more energy, is playful, and the other day I caught him running around the yard chasing the birds! This old dog isn't done yet! September 30, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by ZJusticeBX Awesome food for my 9 year old Boxer I have been giving my Boxer this brand of food since he was 7.5 years old. He LOVES it. Not only are the chunks hardy but the small pellets are the right size for his stomach so he avoids overeating and getting sick. I have tried Royal Canin, Nutro, and Science Diet but Justice has not liked anything more than Purina One. Not only is it good but its affordable and accessible. September 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LisaG My dog loves his maturity senior. Beautiful coat & keeps him at desired weight We've always been fans of Purina! Very happy with the maturity senior blend. He enjoys eating his food dry which for me & his teeth a big blessing. Also his coat is glossy & looks fabulous. My cats even like a nibble every so often..ha September 16, 2015
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 5 out of 5 by tg1ofakind My dog LOVES it!! The transition from her old food to this brand was simple. JoJo can't get enough of it! I can tell a big difference in her fur. She doesn't shed as much. Which makes me happy! She is a little more alert and has more energy. September 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by lalama my dogs prefer the flavor i have a 15 year old chug with arthritis and it's getting very hard to keep him interested in dog food. i'm so happy to have found a food that suits his age and nutritional needs & he doesn't turn up his nose at it. my 8 year old terrier also loves it and i know it will help him to continue to live to a ripe-old age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BaileyBoo Happier dog! After the transition from pedigree to the purina 7+ my dog started acting like a younger happier dog. She's more active and playful so I couldn't be happier for her. Also she loves this food so much that I now use it as treats for good behaviors and tricks and she'll do anything for it. Thanks Purina August 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by srw1819 picky pug Ginger eats the food without prompting. She is eleven and very active. We have had no hot spots this summer! August 1, 2015
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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Muffysmom Wonderful food for my dog. My 7 year old Shih Tzu Muffy loves the food. She has lost a half a pound and she is so much fun now. She's a prissy little girl now. I would recommend this to any dog that is 7 or older. July 14, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Gail Dogs No Longer Like I have been feeding Pruina One Vibrant Maturity 7+ for the last four years. My dog is now 11 and is refusing to eat many of the kibble pieces. She only eats the dark ones. The light ones and the irregularly shaped pieces she is now spitting out and refuses to eat them. This is a change that has occurred over the last few bags. I threw out two different bags and now on the third bag and will throw this one out also. I have today switched to a new brand. I start a new food as a treat giving just a few pieces throughout the day and they love the change. My dog will be very happy with the switch has been completed. May 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tamtiff Tiffany approves!! My corgi mix is 9 years old and has always been active. She had decided that she no longer liked the food she had been eating for almost 8 years. I brought home Iams, Rachel Ray,, etcetera. Then I ran across Purina one smart blend. She loves this food and I am glad I found something that is good for her as well . Thank you Purina one!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cath Chico likes it My senior Akita really likes this food. He is very eager when meal time arrives. He is very enthusiastic when I am preparing his meal and eats it every time. July 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ilykefree New Dog My dog is 11 years old and lately I have seen his desire to eat and energy get less. After the first taste of Vibrant Maturity blend he was hooked. He begs for more after he gobbled it up. He is running after crows again. His eyes look brighter. It is a huge change in him. After this free sample with the 28 day challenge is over we will be buying it. May 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rusticgal Great changes! We have an English Setter/Brittany cross, Lucy, who is 9 1/2 yrs. old. She was put on this planet to be a love & forever stalk squirrels, which she NEVER outsmarts!Last summer we switched her from Purina One Senior because we thought she was becoming allergic to the food. She began itching & everyone told me to go GRAIN-FREE!!So....we switched her to a HIGH END grain free froduct. She's gained more weight than usual this winter, has clean teeth, but horrible breath and VERY large stool volume!!! What's up with that!!Lucy's gradually going back to Purina One Senior Vibrant Maturity & looks great! More energy, the breath is changing along with the stool volumeTHANK YOU! March 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris100 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. October 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by polywog868 my picky dog LOVES & my overweight dog Lost weight I have one very picky poo-chi that wouldn't even eat expensive food, and was a bit picky on your other's but this vibrant maturity she LOVES and can't get enough. My other poo-chi was overweight and non of the weight managment foods worked but this one she did and my other 2 toy poodles love it too. The only thing is that they are drinking ALOT more water than before and one is having accidents in house because she has to go more often. Is this a normal side effect? November 26, 2014
