Senior Dog Food: Meeting Aging Canines’ Nutritional Needs | PolyMVA for Pets

As a rule of thumb, dogs are considered older when they've reached half of their life expectancy, says Mark Nunez, DVM, president of the California Veterinary Medical Association from 2009-2010 and owner of a veterinary practice in Van Nuys, Calif.

In general, "little dogs live to about 15 to 20 years of age, while bigger dogs live to about 12 to15 years.," Nunez says.
"Probably the most important thing for a geriatric dog is that their energy requirement gets lower," Nunez says.
"You make some compromises when you do the 'multi-stage' diets," Nunez says.
"The goal of a diabetic diet is to delay absorption of a food," Nunez says. That's important for dogs with diabetes. When foods are absorbed slowly, blood sugar tends to rise more slowly.
Lower-fat, higher-fiber foods are best for diabetic dogs, Nunez says.
To address this problem, many senior dog foods contain glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate, which Nunez says may help the joints.
Although such supplements may be useful, dogs with joint problems and arthritis benefit more from slimming down, Nunez says. "People think glucosamine is the best thing, but the very best thing is weight management."
What should an owner do when a senior dog won't eat?
It's common for older dogs to have reduced appetite, Nunez says.
"That extra smell and that extra TLC can get the dog to eat," Nunez says. Some owners feed their dogs combinations of foods, such as cooked chicken and barley or cooked lamb and rice.
Pet stores also sell bottles of flavor enhancers that owners can add to food. "Also, as a last resort, there are medications - appetite stimulants - that can help dogs eat," Nunez says.
