I don't know what happened with Precise. There's nothing on the website about it.

No, it's sold in little feed stores all over the country. Check their dealer locator and if they're not in your area talk to the rural independent feed stores about becoming distributors. Victor only works with independent feed stores, no chains or pet shops.

Chicagocanine I always gave my seniors regular adult/all stages foods... I actually found my senior dogs needed more protein and more calories as they got older.

I do agree with you. The Precise that he was eating before was a regular adult food. When I had to switch I started out looking for something else that was fairly low in calories while having a fair amount of protein and found this one. Wasn't really looking for a "senior" food per se.

Emoore Native is good stuff.

Bridget Our vet recommends less fiber for senior dogs. It seems like for everyone you talk to about dogfood, you get a different theory though. We buy Native at our feed store and pay about the same as what you do.

I like this senior food

After my local store stopped carrying Precise, I had to look around for something else to feed Rocky. Since Kopper was already eating Victor Athlete, I tried Rocky on the Victor Silver.

I like it because seniors and less active dogs naturally need fewer calories than more active dogs do, but most companies make their senior foods with a lot of filler and cut back on the protein. This food is fairly low and calories and still has plenty of meat-based protein, mostly beef. Rocky's energy is good, he's nice and slim and has good muscle tone on this.

It's about $45 for a 40lb bag at the feed store.

Just thought I'd pass it along.
