Senior Dog Food: Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to your questions on Senior Dog Foods

Why is specialised food important for senior dogs?

Senior dogs have unique nutritional needs due to their age-related physiological changes. Specialised senior dog food is formulated to support joint health, maintain ideal body weight, and provide essential nutrients that older dogs need for overall wellness.

At what age should I switch my dog to senior food?

Dogs are generally considered senior at 7+, but this can vary between breeds. Observing your dog's health and consulting with your vet is essential to determine when to switch to senior-specific food.

What are the key benefits of senior dog food?

Senior dog foods often include higher levels of joint-supporting ingredients like glucosamine and chondroitin, adjusted calorie content to prevent weight gain, and essential vitamins and minerals to support immune health and overall vitality.

Can senior dog food help with weight management?

Many senior dog foods are formulated with lower calorie content to help manage weight, as older dogs are typically less active and prone to weight gain.

How do I transition my dog to senior food?

Transitioning to senior food should be done gradually over a week or more, mixing the new food with the current one in increasing amounts. This transition helps prevent digestive upset and allows your dog to comfortably adjust to the new diet.

Are there grain-free options for senior dogs?

We offer a variety of grain-free senior dog foods for those with specific dietary needs or sensitivities, ensuring a healthy diet free from common allergens.

By choosing Very Important Pets for your senior dog's nutritional needs, you're ensuring they receive the best care tailored to their stage of life, with the convenience of next working day delivery for orders over £59 placed before 11:45 am.
