When should I start feeding senior dog food?
Your dog is generally classed as a senior dog when they reach 7 years old, although this does depend on breed. For small breeds, such as terriers and toy breeds, they will likely hit their mature years later. For larger, or giant breeds, you’ll see the signs of old age earlier. .
To help your dog through a healthy ageing process, switch your dog to a senior food when they reach 7 years old. If you have any concerns, speak to your vet. They’ll be able to recommend when to switch for smaller or giant breeds. It is best to gradually swap over your dog’s food, even if you’re feeding them the same brand of adult and senior dog food. Start with a full portion of their adult food. Over the course of a week, slowly replace more and more of the adult food with their new Burgess Sensitive Senior dog food. By the end of the 7-10 days the whole portion should be their new senior pet food.
The Burgess Sensitive range is here for your sensitive dog, from a playful puppy, through their adult years and into their senior stage.
