Best Food for Senior Dogs

Senior dogs require a slightly different diet and care to maintain their health. It is ideal for these aging pups to eat more protein while consuming fewer calories. So, what foods fit into this category?

Ollie Chicken and Carrots

Ollie uses a human-grade recipe that is made from fresh ingredients.  This means that the fresh, clean ingredients are of such high quality, they are safe for you to eat too! Additionally, it is customizable to allow you to determine the calories per serving based on your dog’s age, weight, and breed. This is great as your pal ages to ensure they aren’t eating too many calories as they become less active with age. While it is in the more expensive price range, it is an excellent option for your companion that makes the price worth it!

The Farmer’s Dog

The Farmer’s Dog recipe is also a high-protein, human-grade option. This grain-free formula is also available to customize the calorie content for your pup. The customizable formula is a great way to ensure your pal is getting just the right amount of nutrients and calories. Additionally, feeding trials with multiple breeds and ages show that this is a great choice for all breeds.

Wellness Core Senior Dog Food

This recipe is balanced and low-calorie which is great for senior dogs! This keeps your pal from gaining weight as they age and become less active and burn fewer calories. Additionally, it is available in various flavors so you can find one your pup loves. Also, the formula is grain-free and full of omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids promote joint and cardiovascular health, which is a great addition to a senior dog’s diet!

Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind

The Purina formula is unique and helps maintain your furry friend’s cognitive function. The recipe also includes ingredients that promote healthy joints, and digestion, and fight cognitive dysfunction syndrome. All of these benefits are a great addition to your furry friend’s diet. Also, the formula is available in dry or wet blends. So, you can find the perfect fit for your pup.

This recipe is available in a variety of flavors and contains fresh ingredients and whole grains. Also, it is free of corn, wheat, soy, and preservatives. This allergen-free recipe is great if your pal has sensitivities as they age. Wet food can be easier for your aging pal to eat especially if they have chewing issues, which makes this a great option.
