Innova Gives Senior Dogs Solutions for Holistic Nutrition
Davis, CA – Innova®, the first true holistic health food for pets, offers senior dogs holistic options especially formulated for the aging process. Innova Senior Dry Dog Food, Innova Senior Plus Dry Dog Food, and Innova Large Breed Senior Dry Dog Food use whole ingredients from the five food groups to offer our beloved aging canines more in maintaining healthy, active and long lives.
Many pet owners do not know when their pet should be switched over to a senior formula. Because large breeds age more quickly than small breeds, they reach senior status at just six years of age. Innova Large Breed Senior Dog Food is formulated as a transition diet for large or giant breeds over six years old. Natura recommends starting small breeds of dogs on a senior food, such as Innova Senior or Innova Senior Plus, at eight years of age. Always check with your veterinarian if you have any concerns as to whether or not your dog is considered a senior.
Until recently, the conventional wisdom was that senior dogs needed low protein foods for optimum health. Recent studies show senior dogs actually require more protein and additional nutrients to help maintain optimal body condition and support vital systems. Innova’s senior dog food varieties supply holistic nutrition with higher levels of protein to compensate for loss of lean muscle mass due to aging, sickness, and stress.
Since weight control is a common concern in older dogs, Innova senior dog foods have slightly more fiber from whole grains and fruits and vegetables than Innova adult foods. Oxidative damage is believed to contribute to aging; therefore, vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, is also incorporated into Innova senior foods.
Older pets can face painful arthritis issues as their joints and cartilage wear away. Chondriotin sulfate and glucosamine are added to the Innova Senior Plus and Innova Large Breed Senior formulas to promote healthy joints and cartilage in older dogs.
Made with healthful ingredients from all five foods grounds, Innova senior options offer natural nutrition to help keep our dogs healthy at any age. Innova Senior Dry Dog Food and Innova Senior Plus Dry Dog Food are available in 6 lb., 15 lb., and 30 lb. packages. Innova Large Breed Senior Dry Dog Food is available 16.5 lb. and 33 lb. packages.
