Low-fat white fish kibble is one of the best senior dog food recipes to give older dogs because it is a good source of protein, vitamins, fatty acids, and is also very easy to digest. We have selected specific white fish that is ideal for weight control and contains vitamins such as B6, B12 and Niacin, which help to build new red blood cells, maintain healthy nerve cells, and convert food into energy. Your older dog also needs specific quantities of Omega 3 fatty acids to help with inflammation in skin and joints, and in the support and development of brain function, the central nervous tissue and vision. The white fish we have chosen contains exactly what your senior dog needs.
Low Fat and with L-Carnitine - Senior Weight Control Dog Food
This senior dog kibble helps weight control because it contains an average of 15% less fat than your standard dog food recipe. Senior dog kibble should ideally be lower in fat, simply because older dogs are not as active as when they were younger. Also included is L-carnitine to help with weight control. L-carnitine is an amino acid that dogs use to transform fat into energy. It also helps to maintain lean muscle mass by positively affecting activity intensity, body composition, muscle recovery, and oxidative capacity. If your older dog is overweight and you follow our feeding guidelines, with regular activity, this recipe can also help as a weight loss dog food for older dogs. See our testimonials for this recipe!
Glucosamine and Chondroitin - Senior Dog Food for Joints
Hip and joint care for senior dogs is essential. The best dog food for senior dogs with arthritis should contain glucosamine and chondroitin. The glucosamine in our dog food is natural and known to help in treating arthritis, alleviate pain, and joint wear in dogs. It can also help with spinal injury and recovery from joint surgery. Chondroitin is a structural component of cartilage and gives cartilage elasticity known to also help with aches and pains. Together they have a synergistic effect that help each other to produce the building blocks for cartilage. But to be the most beneficial, they must be in the correct ratio as formulated in this recipe.
Natural MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane)
MSM is a natural and powerful anti-inflammatory compound produced by specific plants. MSM for dogs has many incredible benefits. Firstly it is known to help improve the uptake of glucosamine and chondroitin and then cement a good firm structure around joints, acting like a natural analgesic, ideal for healing joints! MSM can also 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 poos are always solid now and she doesn't 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.
