Veterinarians generally consider small dogs to be senior at about 12 years of age, while large dogs reach the senior stage at 6 to 8 years. Every ingredient in Wellness Complete Health Deboned Chicken & Barley Senior Dog Food addresses the aging dog's special needs. Their changing bodies often have a tendency for weight gain, decreased immune system function, more frequent intestinal problems and decreased mobility. The unique blend of ingredients provides complete nutrition with reduced calories and phosphorus, increased fiber and moderate levels of protein and fat.
Recommended Feeding Portions (Based on a standard 8 oz. dry measuring cup):
|Weight of Dog (lbs.)||Cups/Day|
|3-17||1/4 - 1|
|18-23||1 - 1 1/4|
|24-45||1 1/4 - 2|
|46-65||2 - 2 1/2|
|66-85||2 1/2 - 3|
|86-105||3 - 3 1/2|
|106-125||3 1/2 - 4|
For dogs over 125 lbs: Add 1/4 cup per additional 10 lbs.
For pregnant or nursing dogs: Feed 25% more than the amounts listed.
Determining Feeding Portions: Looking at the chart, divide the total cups per day by the total number of times you feed your dog per day to determine the portion size for each meal. Keep a clean bowl of fresh water available at all times. Wellness believes in feeding dry and wet food in combination whenever possible to help increase the level of water in your dog's diet. Every dog is a little different, so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size and activity level. Please use the information as an initial recommendation only and adjust when needed.
Combination feeding: If feeding with wet food, reduce dry amount by 1/3 cup for every 6 oz. of wet food.
Transitioning to Wellness: It is important to slowly transition your pet from his/her current diet as it takes a few days for the body to adapt to the new nutrient levels. To transition, gradually mix in the new food over a 5-7 day period, increasing the amount of Wellness each day, so that you are feeding 100% Wellness by day 7.
Nutrition is only one part of the equation! Be sure to give your dog plenty of love, plenty of exercise and see your veterinarian regularly to help ensure total wellness.
