Senior Dog Diet (Reduced Calorie)
- Reduced calorie and fat levels help mature dogs maintain optimal weight as their metabolism slows and activity levels decrease and overweight dogs reduce the buildup of body fat and maintain leaner muscle mass.
- Made with the highest quality sources of meats, grains and fats to aid in easy digestion and maximum nutrient absorption.
- Healthful grains, including brown rice, oatmeal and sorghum.
- Natural antioxidants, including vitamin E and beta-carotene, support a strong immune system.
- Healthy fiber from beet pulp, a moderately fermentable source of soluble and insoluble fiber, helps promote healthy gastrointestinal functions and more consistent stools.
- Glucosamine and the Green- Lipped Sea Mussel (perna-canaliculus) naturally support proper joint and connective tissue health. The Green-Lipped Sea Mussel is also rich in amino acids, chelated minerals, and fatty acids.
- Balanced ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, including linoleic acid, nurture healthy skin and promote a vibrant coat.
- To help ensure your dog’s nutritional safety, Best Breed pays a premium for EU-approved natural ingredients. Further, Best Breed only uses ethoxyquin-free sources of fish and chicken raised without antibiotics and added hormones.
- Best Breed Senior Dog Diet is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for maintenance. This formula will benefit all sizes of adult dogs.
Dear Dog Enthusiast,
As a dog begins to age, choosing the right diet becomes increasingly important as a high-quality and well-balanced food often helps him or her live a longer and healthier life.
Best Breed’s Senior Diet is formulated with lower levels of fat content to account for decreased energy requirements, but still maintains high in levels of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids which are needed for healthy skin and coat. In addition, it is important that senior dogs get their protein from a meat source that is of the highest quality to assist in reducing stress on the digestive system. The Senior Dog Diet’s low-ash chicken, fish and eggs are high-quality, highly-digestible sources of protein and aid in maintaining and building lean muscle mass. Further, added Green-Lipped Sea Mussel, a natural source of glucosamine and chondroitin, is known to help alleviate arthritis and increase mobility.
Like all of Best Breed’s diets, the Senior Diet is developed with the “common sense” idea that a healthy dog begins with a truly super premium food, made with only the highest-quality ingredients. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions regarding Best Breed’s Senior Diet.
