Butchers’ Senior

arrowFor dogs 8 years and over

Butcher’s understands that as we get older we start to slow down and it’s the same for our four legged friends. A dog can’t tell you if they are feeling their age but like us, they may find their bones are starting to ache and their digestion slows down. That’s why it is important to feed the right diet suitable for an ageing dog to help keep them healthy and happy throughout their senior years.

Butcher’s Senior dog food is specially designed for senior dogs. It contains added chicory and fish oils, making them more easily digestible helping your dog stay, as Fit as a Butcher’s dog.

The best thing you can do is tailor his diet to meet his changing needs.

Feeding senior dogs

Senior dogs need less protein and fat as they are no longer as active as they once were and their digestive system and joints need extra help too.

At Butcher’s we believe what we leave out of our food is just as important as what we put in and that’s even more important for our Senior recipes:

  • Chicory improves intestinal health, acts as a prebiotic encouraging a healthy digestive tract.
  • Protein for muscles
  • Salmon oil for healthy skin & coat
  • Defence supports the immune system
  • Rice gentle on the stomach
  • Oils & fats joint mobility
  • Antioxidants helps cell protection
  • Wheat Gluten for sensitive stomachs

Why should we use Butcher’s Senior dog food recipes?

Just like with us humans, when a dog gets older their metabolic system slows down, so they need some help with digestion and getting rid of harmful free radicals which speed up the ageing process. That’s where our Senior products are designed to help.

Why does a dog need a different food when he’s a senior dog?

As your dog gets older they are less active and have different nutritional requirements. Our Senior dog food range caters for this change and helps support the digestion system.Senior recipes have less protein and fat and added ingredients like chicory, salmon oil and rice which help with digestion and joints.

When is my dog senior?

Dogs become senior dogs at around 8 years old (dog age).
