Nutritional Needs of Senior Dogs
The nutritional needs of dogs change as they move into their senior years. Decreased appetite, alterations in metabolism, reduced mobility, and behavioural changes are all commonly associated with aging. Royal Canin has designed foods specifically for your older dog, supplemented with ingredients such as glucosamine, omega fatty acids, and antioxidants to help address common age-related issues. Senior dogs are also at increased risk for developing various medical conditions, like arthritis, heart disease, and kidney disease. For these reasons, regular veterinary monitoring is crucial during the senior life stage. Royal Canin has an extensive line of products to assist in the prevention and treatment of various diseases common in senior dogs. All Royal Canin senior dog foods provide complete, precisely balanced nutrition for your older dog.
