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.
