What should I feed my aging dog?
Answer

As dogs age, their nutritional needs may change, requiring adjustments to their diet to support their health and well-being. Brittany Kleszynski, a DVM and a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, notes that some of these diets include two supplements, namely glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate, aimed at increasing mobility and joint health. This supplementation proves particularly beneficial for dogs dealing with arthritis, serving as a preventive measure against the exacerbation of this condition. When selecting food for an aging dog, it's crucial to prioritize ingredients that are gentle on their digestive systems. Itโ€™s also important to provide the necessary nutrients to support their aging bodies. Opting for water-based vegetables, such as fresh or frozen green beans, cauliflower, broccoli, and lettuce, can be excellent choices for senior dogs. These vegetables are low in calories and high in fiber, aiding digestion and promoting a healthy weight. Additionally, they provide essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, C, and K, as well as calcium and potassium.Reference:https://www.petmd.com/dog/general-health/how-to-care-for-senior-dog

What human food can I feed my senior dog?
Answer

For your senior dog, it's important to provide a diet that supports their aging body's needs while ensuring they receive adequate nutrition. Fresh, lean cuts of meat such as chicken, turkey, beef, or fish are excellent protein sources. These should be cooked thoroughly to eliminate any risk of bacterial contamination, as senior dogs may have weaker immune systems. Additionally, you can incorporate whole grains like brown rice or quinoa for carbohydrates and fiber. Vegetables such as carrots, green beans, and peas can provide vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Fruits like apples, blueberries, or bananas can be given in moderation as treats, offering additional nutrients and natural sweetness. Christie Long, a DVM and chief medical officer at Modern Animal, advises that dogs should be fed human food in moderation, if at all. Avoid feeding your senior dog foods high in fat, as this can strain their aging organs, and steer clear of seasonings, spices, or additives. These things may upset your dogโ€™s stomach or cause health issues. Monitor your dog's weight and adjust their portion sizes accordingly to maintain a healthy body condition.Reference:https://www.newsweek.com/vet-tells-owner-feed-senior-dog-whatever-he-wants-1866534

What to do if your senior dog wonโ€™t eat?
Answer

If your senior dog won't eat, it's crucial to address the issue promptly. Firstly, assess potential causes such as dental problems, illness, or changes in environment or routine. Ensure the food is fresh and appealing to your dog's taste. Try warming it up or offering different textures. Encourage eating by hand-feeding or providing small, frequent meals. Christi Zelaya, an experienced pet owner, suggests consulting with your vet regarding preparing meals at home for your senior dog. She shares her own experience of cooking meals from scratch for her aging dog. Meals included shredded chicken with brown rice, supplemented with a variety of fruits and vegetables, with no more than two vegetables and one fruit. She emphasizes avoiding seasoning and cooking ingredients as they are. Zelaya found that feeding her dog by hand seemed to facilitate easier eating as he aged. Despite maintaining a good appetite until his last six months, she noticed a decline in his eating habits. She then eventually transitioned to simpler meals like shredded chicken or beef, occasionally offering his favorite peas or fruits. When her dog reached the point of consistently refusing to eat, she and her vet recognized it as his time. Zelaya's vet affirmed that they had provided excellent care for their dog, ensuring he lived a fulfilling life.Reference:https://www.quora.com/How-do-I-get-my-senior-dog-more-excited-about-food-Soaking-it-and-adding-toppers-doesnt-always-work

How many times a day do you feed a senior dog?
Answer

Senior dogs often have different dietary needs than younger dogs due to factors such as reduced metabolism and potential health issues. While many dog owners traditionally feed their pets twice a day, senior dogs may benefit from smaller, more frequent meals. Rather than two large meals, offering smaller portions several times a day can be easier on their digestive systems. Generally, senior dogs can be fed around three to four times a day, depending on their individual needs and health status. This frequency helps prevent stomach discomfort from overeating and provides consistent nourishment throughout the day. It's essential to maintain a regular feeding schedule to keep their metabolism stable and to accommodate any medication they may be taking. When feeding a senior dog, it's crucial to create a peaceful environment free from distractions. This encourages them to eat at their own pace and reduces the likelihood of stress-related eating problems.

Bag is TOO small for medium/large breeds

Does this come in a larger bag other than 8.5 lbs? I had to order 3 bags for my large breed dog that will probably last 2 weeks. I would only recommend d this if it came in a larger bag.

Good food but need smaller kibble options

My 2 senior dogs like the food but have a hard time eating it due to the kibble size. If this is for aging dogs then the kibble size should be smaller, or have an option.

Not sure about this - kibbles too big

It strikes a perfect balance with what my dog needs vim but unfortunately the kibbles are too big. She's a 12 pound schnauzer and she's old so she's missing teeth. Even if she wasn't I'm not sure she could eat this. It's big dog sized kibbles. I have to crunch each one down with a spice grinder - I won't be doing that long term so I'll have to look for something else.

SOFTER AND SMALL DRY FOOD

I have an older dog with kidney and Cushing disease. She needs a small kibble and softer. She also has a fair amount of teeth missing. I see a lot of others feel the same as I do. Listen to us if you care about our pets. If you don't consider our request, I'm looking for another brand.

Density of wet aging care dog food
VERIFIED PURCHASER

When I first used this food for my pet, the consistency was soft. Now the recipe or formula has changed and it is very, very firm. My little dog is 17 and I used to be able to put her daily medications in a bite of food. Now the food will not cover or hold to the capsule or tablet she must take. Hoping you can make the old recipe again or offer a choice between the extremely firm or soft variety.

M
Kibble too large
VERIFIED PURCHASER

At my vet's directive, I started my Shih Tzu mix on the g/d 6 months ago. I decided to get the canned and dry to strike a balance, and to give her something to crunch. She is almost two, so I felt the dry would be good for her teeth. I had no idea the kibble would be so large! I have had two other small dogs on k/d and i/d in the past, and the dry was appropriately sized. I have had to wet and smash the g/d dry, otherwise she picks them out of dish, drops on floor and tries to eat later, but with another dog in house I can't risk it. I see other comments about this issue so I am adding my voice to them - please make smaller bites. Big dogs can eat any size kibble, small ones cannot.

Kibble too large for small dog
VERIFIED PURCHASER

Thankful that my 14 year old 11 pound dog likes this in dry kibble because she does not like the k/d for kidney issues. However, the kibble is too large and I have to smash it before she can eat it, due to missing teeth, and just too large/hard for a little dog. I like for her to have some dry food, not just canned all the time. Surely that is good for her teeth. But they need to make a smaller kibble for senior dogs, as I would expect most senior dogs have teeth problems too. Thanks.

Not as thirsty anymore!
VERIFIED PURCHASER

We adopted an older dog who drank a lot of water. This has helped her with her thirst issues. I also wish they made smaller kibble size since she is only 9 lbs the kibble has to be broken up for her to eat. A 15 lb bag would also be great!

You changed the taste!
VERIFIED PURCHASER

My dog use to love the g/d soft dog food but since you've changed the formula she won't touch it. I can tell its different just by the texture. Why did you mess with a good thing?? This was the only prescription dog food she liked!

Noticed change within a couple weeks

My 13 year old shih tzu started drinking more water and having accidents, so I took her to the vet. After running several tests, he said it was just her kidneys slowing down and recommended this dog food. There was definitely a difference in her health within a couple of weeks. She isn't drinking as much water and no accidents. The only problem is the kibble is too large for her and she's not fond of the taste. I've tried wetting it down, but she won't have anything to do with it. So now I'm smashing it up and mixing it up into the canned g/d. She likes the canned, but still turns her nose up at the canned/dry mixture, which she will eventually eat when hungry enough. Having to smash it up is kind of pain, but she's worth it, so will keep doing it. I hope Hills will consider making a smaller kibble in this formula.

This is a well formulated product for aging dogs

This was recommended by our regular vet as a maintenance diet for our 13 year old Yorkie. He has enjoyed good health over a full and active life (now made a little more active by his 2 year old companion!). He and I are both entering later life, which means attention to achieve a healthy diets in the face of diminished physical stamina and activity. Enjoyable nourishment without becoming overweight is our mutual goal.

Rusty always enjoys the food. He gobbles it up immediately.

As long as Rusty is happy we are happy. He has never turned away for g/d and enjoys it. G/d has a lot of nourishment for an older dog. Rusty will be 11 this month and he still plays fetch every single day.

g/d has helped keep our little dog healthy for many years!

Our little Poodle / Shih Tzu / Bichon mix had some issues - we started her on g/d and she is now 15 - still going strong - she has had very good health since we made the switch to g/d. Thank You!! My only complaint would be that you stopped making the 40 lb bag, so now we buy 3 - 8.5 lb bags at a time - hoping you will go back to larger bags available.

Excellent products

Prescription g/d cardiac diet has been the only dry and wet dog food I have used for the past three years and has maintained a good health for my Schnauzer. She had experienced acute medical problems requiring hospitalizations on two occasions but after initiating Rx Diet, she has been doing very well for a 13-year-old dog. Realize it is an expense to feed, but certainly has lived up to its quality.
