Victor Information

Victor is owned and produced by Mid America Pet Food LLC. The company and its manufacturing facilities are based in Texas. Mid America Pet Food LLC has its own custom-built facility, which is where they produce Victor pet food products.

Victor, as a brand, first appeared in the 1940s, however, they have seen many changes to their products since then, and as a consequence, their current offering has been stable since the mid-’00s.

Victor has produced a video that summarizes the history of the brand, its manufacturing, and the philosophy of the brand and company. You can check out this video here.

Victor Product Range

Dog Food

Victor has an expansive range of dry dog food products. This range includes grain-free and grain-inclusive recipes, as well as recipes for senior dogs, puppies, and dogs of varying activity levels.

Victor’s wet/canned dog food range is considerably smaller in size but still offers some variety.

Cat Food

Victor has a very small cat food range that consists of a single dry food recipe and two wet food recipes.

Victor Nutrition

Dog Food

The nutrition provided by Victor dog food recipes varies significantly. There are recipes that provide below-average to average nutrition, which includes excessive proportions of carbohydrates.

However, there are a number of recipes that provide above-average to significantly above-average nutrition. These recipes feature modest proportions of carbohydrates and significant proportions of protein and fat.

Below is an example of one of the better nutritional profiles offered by a Victor recipe.

Cat Food

Given the extremely small size of Victor’s cat food range, it is hard to fairly evaluate the nutrition it can provide.

However, those few recipes that are available offer nutrition that is average to above-average. This includes reasonable proportions of protein and fat.

Victor Ingredients

High-Quality Meat & Fish Ingredients

  • Chicken
  • Turkey
  • Beef
  • Lamb
  • Pork
  • Salmon

Victor uses a moderately sized range of meat and fish ingredients in its recipes. This range includes all of the industry favorites like Chicken, Beef, and Salmon.

Victor chooses not to use some of the less common meat and fish ingredients like Kangaroo, Venison, and Buffalo. These often feature in recipes for dogs with allergies, which you can read about in our article Best Hypoallergenic Dog Foods Guide.

Venison

Other Notable Ingredients

Grain ingredients featurely regularly in some Victor recipes. Examples include Sorghum, Millet, and Brown Rice. These grain ingredients are some of the more preferred, and many consider them superior to others, such as Wheat or Corn.

Most consumers don’t realize that Alfalfa is featuring in their dog food recipes like those from Victor. It is added to provide some minor micronutrients and because many believe it can provide health benefits. Learn more about Alfalfa in our article Alfalfa In Dog Food.

In many of Victor’s grain-free recipes, legumes such as Peas and Chickpeas are used extensively. Legumes such as these are staples of the industry thanks to their relatively low cost yet high nutritional value.

However, in recent years there has been growing concern about the link between legumes and canine heart disease. Learn more about this in our articles Best Dog Foods Without Peas & Peas, Pea Protein, Pea Flour, and Pea Fiber in Dog Food.

Chicken Fat is a regular addition to many low-cost and bulk pet food brands. It is added to pet food to increase the proportion of animal-based fats and to improve the flavor of the food. Read more about the use of Chicken Fat in our article, Chicken Fat In Dog Food.

Tomato Pomace’s purpose in dog food is to provide soluble fiber. Fiber is important to many dogs to ensure they have regular digestion and stool. Beyond its fiber content, Tomato Pomace provides little additional nutrition. Learn more about Tomato Pomace in our article, Tomato Pomace, as a Pet Food Ingredient?.

Victor Animal Testing

We have no information on what type of testing, if any, that Victor participates in.

We strongly believe that invasive or laboratory-style testing of animals is a cruel and outdated practice and one which we hope will see a significant decline.

Victor Recalls

Based on our research (FDA, AVMA, DogFoodAdvisor), we have no information that leads us to believe that any Victor products have ever been recalled.

Given that Victor is an established and longstanding brand, this is an excellent record. It shows that they take the safety and quality of their production process seriously.

Despite this, we always encourage consumers to be vigilant of any future recalls of Victor or any other pet food brand.
