Low Fat and with L-Carnitine
This senior working dog kibble has been designed specially to help weight control because it contains on average 15% less fat than your standard working dog food recipe. Senior recipes need to be lower in fat and calories since many older dogs are less active as they get older. We have also included L-carnitine, an amino acid that dogs use to transform fat into energy and maintain lean muscle mass. It does this by positively affecting activity intensity, body composition, muscle recovery and oxidative capacity.
If your older working dog is overweight and you follow our feeding guidelines, and with regular activity, this recipe will help with weight management. See our testimonials for this recipe!
Glucosamine and Chondroitin - Senior Dog Food for Joints
Just like humans, hip and joint care for senior dogs is essential. As we get older there is wear and tear. For this reason, we include glucosamine and chondroitin in this recipe. The glucosamine in our dog food is natural and known to help treat arthritis and joint wear and alleviate pain. It is also beneficial in spinal disc injury and recovery from joint surgery. Chondroitin is a structural component of cartilage and gives cartilage its elasticity, and is also known to help with aches and pains. They have a synergistic effect and, together they help each other create the building blocks of cartilage, but to be the most beneficial they must be in the correct ratio as found in this recipe.
MSM is a powerful and natural anti-inflammatory produced by certain plants. MSM for dogs has many incredible benefits. It is well known to help improve the uptake of glucosamine and chondroitin and then cement a good firm structure around joints whilst acting as a natural analgesic. Ideal for healing joints, MSM is also reported to help allergic responses - perfect for sensitive senior dogs.

Since being on Nutrix food we have noticed with our three dogs so far:
Flash -7 years old is eating the senior/light mix. He has during the last 4months lost 3 kilograms in weight which helps with his bad back. His coat has improved and he seems to be happier in himself. He loves the food and his pooh's are always solid. It seems to help with his allergies and we have noticed that his chin, and his arm pits are not so sore anymore.
Hunney - 8 years old is also eating the senior light mix. She has only been eating it the last 1-2 months and already she has lost 1 kilogram in weight. She loves the food and wolfs it down at meal times compared to James Welbeloved where she was fussy. She seems to have more energy and again happier in herself. Her pooh's are always solid now and she does'nt seem to have a gurgly tummy anymore.
Lola - 18 months old has recently moved on from your puppy food to adult food with no problems. She as always loves meals times and always has lots of energy.
We have been really happy with the food that you provide. We will continue to purchase it as we believe out of several brands we have found the best suitable food for all our basset hounds.
