Purina Active Senior 7 Plus Dog Food | Review and Rating
The Purina Active Senior 7 Plus product line includes one dry dog food, a product claimed to meet for adult maintenance.
This food has 30% protein. There are better foods out there at or around 30% as well – Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream, TOTW Sierra Mountain, Natures’ Variety Prairie, Blue Buffalo Life Protection Small Breed, Natures Select Hi Protein, Whole Earth Farms, Wellness Small Breed, Canidae Single Grain Protein Plus, Honest Kitchen Thrive, Nature’s Variety Instinct LID, Nutrisource Grain Free, Canidae GF Pure Land, Natural Balance Alpha Dog. None of these foods have corn, corn gluten meal, soybean hulls, soybean meal, wheat, sugar, animal digest, propylene glycol, food coloring, or menadione or generic meat and bone meal. All of these would have the “better quality meat” than Purina.
I have never worked for Purina or any dog food company. I have taken courses at University of Minnesota in Animal feeding and animal husbandry just as an interest. Most of the info on this site is misleading. I refer you to Consumers Reports which hired vets who specialize in Animal Nutrition. They said Purina as well as similar products do just fine unless your dog has certain specific needs like digestive upset,etc. An expensive high end dog food is extremely profitable. At Petsmart they sell for $18 plus tax for 4 1/2 pound bag. That is $4.00 per pound. Purina dog chow works out to under 60 cents per pound. That dog food at Petsmart was started by a TV actor and his neighbor a few years back. When he became ill they decided to sell the company to JM Smucker Co. for $3 billion dollars. So yes, that expensive dog food makes some people quite wealthy!

Purina Active Senior 7 Plus is a plant-based dry dog food using a limited amount of unspecified meat and bone meal as its main source of animal protein, thus earning the brand 1 star.I think for SOME, glutens, grains, potatoes are a problem, but not for all, and one can not automatically link a reaction in one dog to the general population. An itchy dog can be just about anything, however, its human nature to automatically think “Well, my dog itched due to x, so therefore, the owner of the other dog should do y” In 20 plus years of rescue, we have dealt with thousands of dogs-and most ate “run of the mill” or commercial dog foods such as Iams, Purina etc, and I have yet to have experienced such food issues being commonplace. It just has not been our experience here.Purina Dog Chow Natural Plus Vitamins and Minerals adult dog food is made with high-quality protein including real chicken, and without artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.
