I agree with Obi, Purina is not a good food, those are great sites that Obie listed, check them out and also while your there you can learn what to look for in a quality dog food. They list the ingredients of every dog food, plus give rating out of 5 stars.

Almost all that purina makes are definitely not good foods. I would most recommend Blue Buffalo, Wellness, and Solid Gold brand foods as the best commercial ones I know of, with Nutro and Castor & Pollux coming in somewhere after them. Whatever brand you buy, you may want to put your dogs on a senior formula diet, but this depends on a few factors. Consider their age(s) and breed(s) and how they correspond to the average lifespan of the breed/mix of breeds. A dog is considered a senior when they have reached 75% of their projected lifespan. Age is not the only factor, though, activity has an influence as well. If your dogs are active and generally healthy, it may not be necessary to feed them a senior diet. But if they are less active and/or are starting to show some senior health problems/slowing down, a senior formula may be the best choice.
