Senior Dogs

As your dog ages, his nutritional needs begin to change. Generally, mature aged dogs need a diet that will help with joint support and the preservation of both skeletal and muscular health. Choosing the right food can relieve many of the symptoms of old age and keep your dog feeling fit and healthy for years to come.

  • Getting older results in a slower metabolism. Older dogs are more prone to putting on weight, which can in turn make for sore and aching joints. Senior dog foods will have fewer calories and less fat.
  • Digestive irregularities are common in older dogs, and so a food with fibre, prebiotics and antioxidants can help soothe an upset tummy.
  • Dental disease can become more of a problem with age. Some senior dog foods also contain dental benefits to ensure a healthy mouth.
  • Joint health becomes more important with age. Food with fatty acids, glucosamine and chondroitin will help alleviate joint inflammation.

A number of premium food manufacturers offer specific formulae for senior dog nutrition.
