    I was using Victor High Energy on my 2 labs. It's a 4-star rated food. I switched over to Blue Buffalo Wilderness. Not because Victor is a bad food but I wanted to go grain-free. I did however notice a significant difference in the shine of their coats and less dander. I think Victor is a good food for the price. I just wanted to go grain free and wasn't concerned with the difference in cost.

    i did the exact opposite you did, i was on the blue buffalo wilderness, the puppy formula, to Victor High performance plus, mainly because thats what the trainer will be feeding them when i send them off. But being able to to buy a 40 lb bag at about $37-$42 was a lot nicer than buying a 30 lb bag at $55-$60. did your labs do perform well while on victor?

    I have fed the hi-pro version of Victor (30/20) pretty extensively. My dog has done as well on it as she has on any other food I've tried. The ingredient list is better than most of the others that cost about twice as much.

    Love it so much got my dad on as a dealer. It's a great feed and at stores around here I can get hi pro plus 30/20 for 32 bucks (40#) great food and less filler means smaller portions which helps the pocket book. Went from 5.5 cups of eukanuba to 3.5 victor for my 11 month old CLM

    during the offseason I fed the purple bag $26 40# but now that we are in thick of training again he's back on teal bag.

    donbrou curious why u didn't try victors grain free if you liked their regular gluten free formula?

    I tried it and it didn't work for me. After 2 months of loose stools I had to give that cheap stuff up and get back on the good stuff.. My dogs do very well on PP!!
