Q: Q: My dog is getting older and less active. What should I feed him?

 

A: As your dog ages, so do his internal organs, and it is even more important to feed him a high quality diet so as not to burden his kidneys further by dealing with too many waste products. He will probably not be as active as his former years so can manage on a less calorie dense diet, but the ingredients must always be high quality and readily utilised. Arden Grange Senior is a perfect food for most older dogs, as it has a lower protein and fat content, while maintaining all the necessary ingredients he still requires to keep him in good condition. All Arden Grange foods contain glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM to assist in maintaining healthy joints and cartilage, and the highest level can be found in the Senior and Adult Large Breed products.
