In general, dogs of seven years or more start taking life a bit easier, and as a result their nutritional needs are different to those of younger dogs. In large breeds, this change can occur even earlier. Senior dogs are less active with a slower metabolism, so can be prone to gain weight, and they may also require support for their ageing joints and immune system. They therefore require a high quality tasty diet such as Nutriment's Senior Formula with easy to digest protein, lower calories and a balance of essential nutrients.
With two sizes it is really easy to defrost and prepare; with the chubbs you're able to defrost then keep in the fridge for around 3 days so ideal if you're staggering your dogs food.
With all Nutriment food the main ingredients are carefully planned and prepared to assist your dog's recovery times, maintain their muscular physiques and really tickle those taste buds.
This range comes packed full of vitamins, minerals and oils - everything that your dog needs to lead a really healthy lifestyle.
If your dog has been eating the same protein every day for months or years, there is a good chance he or she may develop an allergy to it. Contrary to popular belief, dogs need diversity in their diets just like humans do - so don't be afraid to mix up your usual order a bit and give your dog some variety!

Minimum guidelines by F.E.D.I.A.F. Adult Late Growth 1/1
A full grown adult dog should be fed around 2-3% of the dog's ideal body weight per day, ideally spread over two meals. If your dog needs to lose some weight, try feeding slightly less than this quantity, or switch to a meat with a lower fat content, until the ideal weight has been achieved. Don't forget that exercise is essential too!
There is no need to feed any thing extra, simply defrost the packet in your fridge, portion out the correct amount and your dog will be getting a complete meal.
As always, this is a guideline and may need to be adjusted according to you dogs breed/activity level.
