When your dog reaches its senior years, their nutritional requirements begin to change as they adopt a more sedentary life. Your dog may be more prone to joint and muscle difficulties or they may develop certain food sensitivities to things that once caused them no problems at all. Just like humans, as our dogs advance in years, they need to be properly cared for and this includes providing them with the correct balance of nutrition specific to their maturity.
Natures Harvest Senior is a gently steamed complete wet food for mature dogs made with chicken and brown rice. Its a simple formula that is kind to your dogs digestive system, which may become sluggish as they get older. Our protein source, chicken, is of human grade which means that the chicken used in our Natures Harvest Senior food can also be eaten by humans too. Its not uncommon for some dog foods to be made with parts of protein sources that are not for human consumption.
Why chicken? Weve chosen chicken with its high vitamin, protein and fat content because most dogs can digest poultry easily.
Why brown rice? We use brown rice to add fibre which aids in the binding of the food, allowing for a firm stool which is always good if you are the one doing the picking up! Fibre also keeps dogs regular and this becomes more important for ageing digestive systems found in senior dogs.
Why steam? Steaming allows the food to cook gently over a longer period keeping the food moist without destroying all the nutrients within.
Natures Harvest Senior does not contain any meat or vegetable nasties, fillers, artificial flavours, colours or preservatives that are often found in other pet foods. These can trigger allergies in older dogs that lead to unnecessary health problems.
For senior dogs, its all about the joints and limbs. Thats why we boost our recipes for Natures Harvest Senior with added glucosamine and chondroitin to support the maintenance of joints and limbs. We also include natural rubbed herbs and vitamin C to promote antioxidant properties that protects cells from damage from free radicals (nasty, invisible molecules) present in the environment, as well as adding yeast extract which strengthens immune systems and staves away sniffles that older dogs with more mature immune systems may be prone to. We also add good fats such as omega 3 and 6 which are important for the maintenance of healthy skin and glossy coats. As your dog gets older, theres no reason why they cant maintain their good looks!!
Why not add a little crunch into your dogs meal and increase their chew time? Add our Natures Harvest Wheat and Gluten Free Mixer to make the food go further and keep your dog healthier, its an ideal accompaniment Natures Harvest Senior dog food.
