What Is A Senior Dog? The age at which your dog becomes a senior varies with the breed and the individual dog. For small breeds up to 20 lb.--approximately 7 years. For medium breeds from 20 to 90 lb.--approximately 6 years. For giant breeds over 90 lb.--approximately 5 years. Some of the changes associated with your dog's aging process are visible (graying muzzle, weight change, less playful), while changing nutritional requirements are not. Many veterinarians and nutritionists believe the nutrient requirements of your senior dog are much different than when if was a frisky puppy or active adult dog. By switching to Natural Choice Senior when your pet reaches his senior years, you will help to provide it with the optimum nutrition to help make his mature and senior years more enjoyable. Great Taste: Dental problems and decreased appetite, as a result of the older dog's reduced ability to smell and taste, may lead to inadequate food intake. The once eager eater gradually becomes a finicky eater with the potential for nutritional deficiencies. The unique aroma of Natural Choice Senior, plus its great taste, will help to ensure the nutritional well-being of even the most finicky dog. Unique Shape--Easy to Chew: Adult foods are typically made hard and crunchy, but as dogs get older they tend to have loose or missing teeth and tender gums. Eating a hard food can be difficult. Natural Choice Senior was designed to be easier to chew because of its unique shape and formulation. Reduced Protein and Phosphorous Levels: Your senior dog has no requirement for the high levels of protein usually associated with growth or high activity. Most researchers recommend moderate levels or protein and phosphorous to avoid dietary excesses. Natural Choice Senior is formulated to contain a moderate level of highly digestible protein. Because of its high digestibility, the senior dog can readily utilize this protein to help maintain muscle tone, lean body mass, and good

Nutro Dog Food

posted 5 years ago

This food is making my dog sick. I am in the process of changing food. I got on line and found some people who have had the same problem. A couple of their dogs have died. I emailed Nutro to let them know but haven't heard back yet. Just a warning, if you use it , watch your pet closely.

Pros: None right now

Cons: Making my dog sick

Works for me

posted 5 years ago

I switched Alice over to Natural Choice Senior when she turned 6. The vet said she could lose about 5 lbs. and she wasn't getting as much exercise as she used to as a pup (my fault, I know). Anyway, she took to it really fast and she eats everything right away (we feed her a cup of food twice a day, supplemented with carrots or other veggies on hand).

Pros: Cost and convenience

Cons: None
