Nutro Wholesome Essentials Senior Dog Food - Chicken, Whole Brown Rice & Oatmeal Formula will provide the extra TLC your senior dog needs to stay healthy and agile. It is recommended for dogs that are 7 years of age or older that weigh between 15 lbs. and 65 lbs. This formula is created to promote a healthy mind and body in order to keep your faithful companion by your side even longer.

One of the main ingredients, real, farm-raised chicken, ensures that your senior dog is getting the right amount of protein and energy to sustain a slower metabolism without causing unwanted weight gain. Some older dogs are more sensitive to certain foods, so this food also contains whole grains such as brown rice and oatmeal to ease digestion and to ensure your dog is getting all of the nutrients necessary for optimal health. It is loaded with antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids which encourage healthy brain, joint, and cellular functioning. Many dogs also suffer from pain in the joints, so naturally-sourced glucosamine and chondroitin have been added to promote healthy cartilage and to aid in mobility.

Nutro Wholesome Essentials does not use artificial flavours, colours, or preservatives, so you can rest assured that it is a safe, natural choice for your dog. In addition, the Chicken, Whole Brown Rice & Oatmeal Formula contains omega-6 fatty acids, B vitamins, and zinc, which are proven to make the coat healthier and provide extra moisture for more sensitive skin. To ensure quality nutrition and to prevent reactions to food, it does not contain corn-gluten, corn, wheat, or soy protein.
