Biologically appropriate for senior dogs of all breeds for Peak Health.
As dogs age, their bodies become less efficient at metabolizing the proteins which are vital to maintaining their muscle mass and physical conditioning. In addition to more dietary protein, senior dogs require fewer calories and, more importantly, fewer carbohydrates, a primary contributor to the obesity and diabetes common in todays dogs.
And while current veterinary science is clear and unanimous in its finding that low protein does more harm than good, most conventional diets are still formulated with lower protein & higher carbohydrates, exactly what senior dogs DON"T need.
The relationship between carbohydrates and protein is an important factor in the diets of senior dogs. When protein is high, carbohydrates are low. in other words, high protein diets are by nature low in carbohydrates, and that's great for senior dogs excessive amount of inappropriate carbohydrates (which are simply sugars) - are that last nutrient needed in any senior dog's diet
