Q: My dog is very sensitive, how do I transition him/her onto the Sensitive range food?

A: We usually suggest gradually changing over the course of a week, but you may wish to double this period if your dog is ultra-sensitive.



Q: What is in the Sensitive that makes it better than your other foods for my dog’s tummy?

A: Sensitive has a high Omega-3 EPA and DHA content. These essential fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties. Ocean white fish is usually easily digested, and the exclusion of grains may be of benefit to dogs with an allergy or intolerance to cereals. 



Q: My dog can’t tolerate chicken, how is this a sensitive food if it contains chicken oil?

A: Chicken oil is rarely associated with adverse food reactions in dogs because it is a very digestible, pure source that has had any large antigenic protein molecules filtered out. A food allergy is an adverse immune reaction to a dietary protein rather than a fat/oil, and intolerances are more likely to occur in response to less digestible ingredients. 



Q: What’s the difference between the maintenance and reduction diets?

A: The reduction diets are lower in fat and calories, and contain L-carnitine to help convert fat to muscle.



Q: Can I feed Light food to give my dog bigger portions?

A: Yes, this product is often a great choice for dogs with a large appetite who appreciate more volume in the bowl.

You might also like to consider feeding some Partners canned food if your dog has a big appetite. Wet food is a lot lower calorie than dry so portions are larger. 



Q: When feeding Light, should I feed for the weight I’d like my dog to be, or the current weight?

A: It is initially recommended you start by feeding for your dog’s current weight using the weight reduction guide on the packaging or our feeding guide above, but if weight loss is proving difficult, gradually reduce down to the volume suggested for your dog’s ideal weight.



Q: When should I change my dog from adult to senior food?

A: 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.



Q: At what age is my dog considered senior?

A: 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.



Q: My senior dog is still active, but has stool problems, is Sensitive Light/Senior a good choice?

A: 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.



Q: Will my senior dog lose weight if I put him/her on Sensitive Light/Senior?

A: Only if you want him/her 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.



Q: What’s the difference between your two Senior products?

A: 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.
