Senior Dog FAQ's

We generally recommend changing to our senior food when you notice your dog slowing down and/or getting a little stiff. All dogs are different and age at different rates.
This depends on breed/size since smaller dogs generally have a longer lifespan.

As a very general guide, around 8 years of age is considered senior, but some dogs are still very active at this age and others may show signs of ageing a little earlier.
Unfortunately, no diet can prevent arthritis and bone problems because the cause may be genetic, due to injury, wear and tear etc. 

However, the product does contain glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM to support joint health. 

It is also lower in fat than the maintenance diets, because keeping your dog at a healthy weight to avoid additional strain on the joints is important, especially in older pets.
The lower fat content and higher fibre content may be beneficial. 

This product also has a higher joint supplement inclusion than the adult products. 

The lower calorie content may be beneficial in preventing unwanted weight gain when he does start slowing down with age. 

If he has a low appetite, is underweight, or has a history of difficulty maintaining weight, our Adult Sensitive may be the better option.
Only if you want him to - by feeding according to the weight reduction chart on the pack. 

So long as he is eating a sufficient volume that provides the calories he needs, he can also maintain or gain weight on this product providing he is able to digest it well. A maintenance feed chart is also included on the pack.
The nutrient values are very similar, and both products share the same high level of joint support. 

The main difference is that the Sensitive Light/Senior is fish and potato based, whilst the Senior in the orange bag is chicken and rice based.
