Arden Grange Senior with Fresh Chicken Rice has been specially formulated to meet the nutritional requirements of the older dog. As a dog ages, gradual changes will become evident, such as graying hair, joint stiffness, slower reflexes, sleeping more and a general “slowing down”. As with human beings, hearing, vision and sense of smell may diminish. Arden Grange Senior – Chicken Rice at a glance: Digestive Health Renal Function The senior dog needs optimal levels of a very high quality protein source that is easily digested and metabolised. Arden Grange use chicken as the primary ingredient because of its extremely high biological value and the ease with which the protein can be broken down. Maintenance of Optimum Weight â An older dog is likely to lead a more sedentary lifestyle, and therefore will require a lower calorie intake to avoid weight gain. The controlled levels of pure chicken oil in Arden Grange Senior ensure that sufficient fatty acids are available for the bodyâs needs without providing calories surplus to the energy requirement. Joint Care – Arden Grange Senior contains boosted levels of Glucosamine and Chondroitin in order to help to protect the joints and prevent the deterioration that naturally occurs with age from worsening. The diet is also supplemented with MSM (an ultra pure form of sulphur derived from pine bark). This has many benefits including anti-inflammatory properties and pain relief. It may also aid in reducing stress and improving mental alertness. Immunity Disease Prevention â The diet is fortified with the antioxidant Vitamins A, C, E and beta-carotene, as well as rosemary oil and yucca extract. All of these potent natural antioxidants combine in the body to inhibit the formation of destructive free radicals. The addition of nucleotides has benefits to both the immune and digestive systems.
