California Natural Supports Senior Health with New Senior Dog Food

Fremont, NE – As our dogs age, their nutritional needs change. It’s important for pet owners to recognize this change and feed their canines a proper diet especially formulated for seniors. That’s why Natura Pet Products has recently expanded its popular California Natural® limited ingredient pet food line with a new Chicken Meal & Brown Rice Formula Senior dog food.

Like people, dogs age differently. Often pet caretakers have trouble distinguishing when their pet should be switched over to a senior formula. Natura recommends starting dogs on a senior food at six years of age for large breeds and eight years of age for small breeds. Always check with your veterinarian if you have any concerns as to whether or not your dog is considered a senior.

California Natural continues its limited ingredient feeding strategy with the introduction of California Natural Chicken Meal & Brown Rice Formula Senior dog food, which is specifically formulated to meet the needs of aging dogs. This means dogs that have shown healthy results on a limited ingredient diet now have an excellent option to continue feeding with pure and simple nutrition throughout their golden years.

“Senior dogs typically require more protein, less fat and additional nutrients to help maintain optimal body condition and support vital systems. California Natural Chicken Meal & Brown Rice Formula Senior dog food is precisely formulated with higher protein levels, lower fat and added L-carnitine to help older dogs maintain muscle mass and lean body weight, within a limited ingredient formula,” said Sean Delaney, DVM, MS, Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Nutrition and Natura’s Chief Nutrition Officer.

Because the new California Natural senior formula includes only one protein, one carbohydrate source and limited healthful fats, plus added vitamins and minerals, it is an excellent option for all senior dogs, as well as those with food sensitivities. California Natural’s new senior formula gives our aging dogs who may be experiencing dry skin or a loss of coat luster, a great option even when food allergies are a concern.

Glucosamine, chondroltin sulfate, and long-chain omega-3 fatty acids are also included in the new senior formula to support joint strength and mobility. Herring oil provides the California Natural senior formula with a source of EPA and DHA to help with inflammation and cognitive aging. Higher levels of natural antioxidants, including vitamin E, also provide additional immune system support for older dogs.

California Natural Chicken Meal & Brown Rice Formula Senior dog food is available in 5 lb., 15 lb. and 30 lb. bags.
