Ingredient Review

Our review of VICTOR Purpose Nutra Pro Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Chicken Meal. In pet food, chicken meal is often listed as a source of protein. Chicken meal is produced by baking and grinding chicken meat and skin. As a dry form of animal protein, it is most often found in kibble and treats.

The second ingredient is Blood Meal Conventionally Dried. Blood Meal Conventionally Dried is an inert powder made from blood and rich in protein and iron. It’s used to make pet food palatable

The third ingredient is Whole Grain Millet. Whole grain millet is a gluten-free cereal grain that finds its way into a variety of products ranging from baked goods to birdseed. In pet food, whole grain millet can be a source of carbohydrates, amino acids, fiber, B vitamins, and other nutrients.

The fourth ingredient is Chicken Fat. Chicken fat is a good source of omega-6 fatty acids including linoleic acid. In pet food, chicken fat also adds flavor, improves consistency, and serves as a source of the animal fat pets need for overall wellbeing.

The fifth ingredient is Mixed Tocopherols. Mixed tocopherols are a form of vitamin E. These antioxidants are used as a natural preservative. In pet food, mixed tocopherols help to prevent spoilage and oxidization.

When we analyzed the ingredients in VICTOR Purpose Nutra Pro Dry Dog Food, we found that most of the protein is derived from meat based sources.

Nutritional Analysis

Your adult dog needs a balance of macro and micronutrients to thrive. A food formulated for adult maintenance or all life stages is made to meet these needs. While there can be a lot of variation in actual calorie density, adult dog foods are generally intended to provide for basic calorie needs of the average active dog. In addition to satisfying their energy needs, these foods provide the protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, and other nutrients your adult dog needs to survive. Again, not all adult foods are the same, so you may have to search around for the right fit for your dog.
