As dogs get older their nutritional needs change. Barking Heads Golden Years is especially formulated for senior dogs (aged 7+) containing a combination of easy to digest ingredients, prebiotics, natural antioxidants and joint support to keep your dog happy and healthy. Not only will your dog look good but it will feel it too!
As dogs gets older, their whole body dynamic changes and their basic needs change, similar to people. Their metabolism slow downs and their appetite fades, joints becomes stiffer and the risks with conditions such as arthritis increases. Barking Heads has designed a mix especially dedicated for the older dog called ‘Golden Years’. Dogs are considered ‘older’ when they reach half their life expectancy, usually around 7 years.
Barking Heads Golden Years has 40% Chicken and Trout and is combined and other ingredients like carrot, apple and cranberry which are appetite stimulants that your dog will find utterly irresistible. It is wheat-free to help alleviate any scratching issues and prevents allergies. Barking Heads Golden Years use low GI foods like brown rice, barley, oats to give your pet dog a full feeling for longer while also increasing their energy levels and potato containing good fibre which is gentle on your dog’s stomach and all help to lower cholesterol levels.
It has a special hip and joint care pack, with added glucosamine, which help keeps their joints supple while also alleviating any joint pain they may have, by forming (and repairing) body tissues such as cartilage. Glucosamine is naturally produced by the body but the natural repair process slows down with age resulting in joint pain and stiffness.
Barking Heads Golden Years contain no artificial flavourings, colourings preservatives and GM ingredients. It helps to maintain your dog’s weight and body mass without putting any extra strain on their kidneys.
Remember: As your pet dog gets older, he will prefer to drink more water than ever before. This is because it helps with their kidney function while also helping to prevent constipation.
