What Should I Feed My Old Dog?

Aging is unique to each animal. A recent study showed that older dogs typically require fewer calories to maintain their same weight as younger counterparts due to a reduced metabolic rate. However, as older dogs age, at some point they tend to lose weight and become thin, whether due to a decreased appetite, decreased chewing and swallowing capabilities or other health reasons.

Knowing your dog and what is normal for him is the best gauge for determining what is the most appropriate way to feed him. Senior dogs may require a food that provides adequate, high-quality and complete protein to maintain muscle. Older dogs tend to lose muscle mass and protein reserves. This may impair tissue repair and energy metabolism but also the immune system. Fiber is also important in the senior diet and its inclusion can help to alleviate constipation as well as to regulate blood glucose levels and aid in nutrient digestion. A comprehensive wellness supplement such as Platinum Performance® Canine that provides omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals can be very beneficial to make sure dogs receive all the essential nutrients they require to stay healthy as they age.

What supplements does my senior dog need to help him stay healthy and active?

Senior dogs may require extra support to stay healthy and active as they age. Supplementing older dogs with a wellness and complete joint formula like Platinum Performance® Canine CJ can provide them with the necessary support to continue doing the activities they love with the people that love them. Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals provided in Platinum Performance® Canine CJ complement any canine diet and work synergistically to supply aging cells with the support needed to repair, maintain and thrive. Specific joint-supporting nutrients like glucosamine, hyaluronic acid, MSM and cetyl myristoleate function to cushion and lubricate joints and surrounding tissues. Supplementing with joint nutrients can be a very effective way to keep older dogs comfortable as they deal with the natural wear and tear, and oftentimes discomfort, that accompanies aging joints.
