Default Tips on Feeding Older Dogs

Hi Folks:

I liked this article on Tips on Feeding Older Dogs so I thought I would share it.

For example, the article says "

Avoid "senior" diets that have reduced levels of protein. Studies have shown that the protein requirement for older dogs does not decrease with age, and that protein levels do not contribute to the development or progression of renal failure. It is important to feed older dogs diets that contain optimum levels of highly digestible protein to help maintain good muscle mass.

Anyway, hope this helps someone.

Kat
