Why is senior dog food important for older animals?
Providing older dogs with the ideal balance of nutrition, flavour, and energy is essential to keep them happy and healthy during the later stages of their life. At Nutriment, we believe that a complete, natural, and raw diet is hugely important for senior dogs.
In general, dogs of seven years or more start to slow down, and as a result, their nutritional needs are different to those of younger dogs. In large breeds, this change can occur even earlier. Senior dogs are generally less active, sometimes with a slower metabolism, and so can be prone to gain weight. They may also require support for their ageing joints and immune systems. Considering this, Nutriment’s raw senior dog food is specifically designed to support older dogs and promote optimal health and well-being.
Nutriment’s dog food is specially formulated for senior dogs
Nutriment's dog food is expertly crafted to cater to the specific nutritional needs of senior dogs. With a focus on the challenges that occur once a dog reaches a certain age, we ensure that our dog food contains ingredients that:
- Support healthy joints and promote ease of movement
- Boost the immune system
- Help maintain a healthy weight
- Help maintain a healthy digestion
Ease of movement and joint health
As dogs get older, they can begin to suffer from stiffness in the dog’s joints and limbs, just like humans. Though they may not be able to exercise for as long as they used to, a complete, raw diet rich in essential fats and proteins helps promote easy movement and healthy and supple joints.
Support of the immune system
Just as older humans are more susceptible to illnesses and infections, dogs who are in the later years of their lives are often prone to health problems that can be caused by a weakening immune system. Nutriment’s senior dog food includes essential vitamins and nutrients that can promote the body's natural defences, meaning your dog can be far less susceptible to unpleasant conditions such as ear or eye infections, digestive problems, and bowel disorders. A strong immune system also means more energy and a happier temperament so your dog can live a happy and healthy life in their older years.
As dogs get older, their metabolism can begin to slow down, which means they break down and process fats slower. Even with a natural, healthy diet, this can lead to unwanted weight gain, which can also cause additional health problems.
Choosing Nutriment’s raw senior dog food helps with weight control, meaning that you can contribute to the maintenance of your dog’s ideal, healthy weight. This formula is specifically created to provide the appropriate balance of fats, proteins, and energy-giving nutrients.
Dogs are naturally designed to digest biologically appropriate ingredients in an extremely efficient manner. Commercially available dog foods tend to contain additives and artificial ingredients that are difficult for most dogs, especially older dogs, to digest. This can lead to digestive issues such as gas, bloating, and problems when going to the toilet.
Poor digestion can be a cause of discomfort for many older dogs, and in some cases, it can also lead to problems such as reduced energy and disturbed sleep. Luckily, Nutriment’s senior raw dog food is formulated to be easily digested by older dogs, with minimal unpleasant digestive side effects.
Choose grain-free senior dog food
Nutriment understands the importance of providing a healthy and balanced diet for senior dogs. We believe that dogs should be fed a diet that supports their natural needs and promotes overall health. That is why our grain-free senior dog food is carefully crafted to provide the necessary nutrients and support your dog's well-being.
Our grain-free senior dog food is solely made from biologically appropriate ingredients. This means that we do not use ingredients that might be harmful to dogs but only include natural ingredients that they are naturally designed to eat. By avoiding grains and using only high-quality ingredients, such as fresh meat and superfoods, we ensure that your senior dog receives the best nutrition possible.
Senior dog food suitable for dogs with allergies
Our range of senior dog food also cater to dogs with allergies. Certain ingredients like grains, additives, and preservatives can trigger discomfort and develop allergies in some dogs. That is why our senior dog food is carefully formulated to be free from these potential allergens.
By eliminating these ingredients, we ensure that our senior dog food provides a safe and nourishing option for dogs with allergies and food sensitivities. This is beneficial if your dog has sensitive skin or sensitive digestion, for example.
At Nutriment, we prioritise the health and well-being of senior dogs, and our allergy-friendly formula allows them to enjoy their meals without any discomfort or adverse reactions. With our specially formulated dog food, senior dogs can enjoy a well-rounded and nourishing diet that supports their overall health and well-being. This way, you can keep your furry friend happy and healthy for years to come.
