|If you have an older pup, be aware of a recent study from the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University regarding food for senior dogs. Researchers found discrepancies in the nutritional content of nearly 40 senior dog foods and owners’ perceptions about them. One important takeaway: Not all older dogs require a “senior diet” and there is no single food that’s appropriate for all senior dogs. For instance, some aging dogs may lose weight and lean body mass, while others may become more sedentary and gain weight, and each would have different nutritional requirements. Do your research and consult your vet to choose the best food for your dog.
