Feeding guidelines

Feeding Adult Dogs

Glucosamine and Chondroitin are unique ingredients that work together to support joint health. This formula can be fed to any adult dog, and is beneficial for active and performance dogs, as well as larger breeds that may be susceptible to joint issues later in life. It is generally recommended to start feeding large breeds a glucosamine and chondroitin fortified food early in life (between 1 and 2 years) and continue feeding long term for most effective results.

Tips on changing foods

It is best to make a transition from one brand of dog food to another over a period of a week to 10 days. Gradually replace your current food with VICTOR formula increasing the percentage of the mix to 100% within 7-10 days.

Keep fresh water available at all times.
