We have always fed our 2 dogs on NatureDiet (originally recommended to us by our dog trainer). We currently buy 3 flavours to vary their diet, but every other pack is Senior (the dogs are 7.5 & 10.5yrs) and they love them. We add a light sprinkling of Arden Grange kibble. We have learnt to avoid anything with beef in it (caused coat discolouration), and too much kibble (caused staining/gunge around the eyes). My wife does have trouble with the packaging perforation sometimes.
Good for weight control
One of the only dog foods aimed for senior dogs that actually helps them lose weight as well, my springer loves it!
Well blanced Meal
The Turkey and Chicken is a lighter option and whilst it is entitled “Senior-Lite” it is in our opinion a good option for dogs of any age and can still be mixed with a little dry dog food as well.
My bull terrier does really well on a raw diet, however for convenience when we are camping or have someone else looking after her, I introduce these and she does really well on them. Naturediet is the only brand that doesn't upset her tummy, even if introduced quite quickly, and her coat looks great on it, and no gunky eyes like she gets with kibble. Only downside is recently the packs seem to have got a lot harder to open!
Excellent for sensitive stomach
My labrador retriever (12) has a very sensitive stomach, and it has taken me a long time to find a food combination which sates his appetite and he can keep inside him. I give him half a tray of Nature diet in the morning with some Iams senior, and the same again at night. Finally, he's comfortable and his colicky symptoms have gone. Huge relief for us all.
this is a good complete food, we use this at the rescue kennels where I work. Not impressed with the new packaging or the reduction of the meat content as its now 5% less than it was. Nature diet seem to change their recipies- we're still using up "old stock" atm - lets see what happens to the dogs "outputs" once we try the new stock!
Very pleased with this food
My dog has just had major, life saving surgery and needed something to boost her appetite and a food which would be easy on her stomach. This food has fitted the bill perfectly and I am going to keep her on it from now on.
My dog had pancreatitis three months ago and I was looking for a tasty (she is very fussy) low fat food that she could tolerate. I am really pleased with this particular food, her pancreatitis is under control and we have had no episodes or upset stomachs since changing her over. She also loves it, which is a major plus!
Excellent for dogs with Colitus
Naturediet & Burns wet pouches were the only foods I could give my old Bichon Frise. He suffered terribly with Colitus and a lot of the time I had to cook human lamb mince and potato or rice with peas which is real headache everyday. He lived to 17years old mostly on burns or naturediet.
This is the only food my dog Benjy can tolerate so it is good that he loves it! In my opinion Naturediet is the best wet food you can get. Zooplus please will you supply this in packs of 18?
