MATURE ADULT DOG CARE

Mature dog

As in humans, a dog's body and daily activity levels change with age. By altering the way you care for your older dog, you can maintain his optimum health into his golden years.

Dogs are often considered older when they reach half of their life expectancy. A food change should be considered around the age of five years for large-and giant –breed dogs and around seven years for small and medium dogs.

At this more mature age, dogs may gradually start to gain weight and develop age related physical and behavioral changes. Older dogs also have a greater risk of developing problems with their kidneys and heart. They may have special digestive needs, so a food with lower fat, phosphorus, protein and calories and with increased amounts of fiber is ideal.
