Raw feeding guide for senior dogs

德国赛车Like all of us, as we get older, our senior dogs may need that little bit of extra care & attention. This is especially true when it comes to diet. Diet is the building block of all of our dogs’ cells, including their heart, brain, joints and even their immune system. 

With our senior raw dog food , you now have the power to ensure these building blocks are healthy. We want to help your senior dog combat the common problems associated with ageing.

The benefits of senior raw dog food

How Bella & Duke senior raw dog food helps

A healthy, natural diet plays a key role in helping your senior dog thrive. Whether by avoiding common symptoms or significantly reducing a large proportion of them, or both. Our growing community of happy feeders are a testament to this!
 

Quality ingredients, minimally processed

When developing our senior raw dog food, we focused on ingredient quality & minimally processed proteins that are intact, whole & natural.  In fact whilst your senior dog will benefit on all of our raw dog food ranges, our Superfood Enriched senior raw dog food is specifically engineered to benefit the older dog.

Bioavailable proteins

德国赛车Studies have shown that natural whole raw proteins are more bioavailable than their processed counterparts and much easier to digest. This is ideal for the senior dog. who may have decreased enzyme activity after many years of processed food.  

Amino acids for joint, brain & heart health

德国赛车Our senior raw dog food also delivers natural whole spectrum amino acids required to repair joints, replace specific essential cells such as those found in the heart and brain that can keep your senior dogs’ happy heart pumping and their tail wagging.

Better digestion and better absorption means greater nutrients, vitamins and minerals for your dog.  

Packed with vitamins, minerals & antioxidants

Vitamins and minerals don’t simply allow your dog to perform the millions of cellular functions essential to health, they also allow them to specifically combat the effects of ageing. We ensure our Superfood Enriched range is packed with additional levels of antioxidants to help your dog neutralise those free radicals from everyday metabolism and pollution in the modern world. 

Botanical anti-inflammatories

The raw Superfood Enriched range also contains additional botanical anti-inflammatories, such as curcumin, black pepper & other superfoods for antioxidants & cellular protection. These have been specifically selected for the senior dog.

Low in sugars & carbohydrates

德国赛车Senior dogs tend to be more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease which is fuelled by excess sugars. All of our senior raw dog food ranges are naturally low in sugars and carbohydrates which not only plays to your dog’s biology as a carnivore but can also help your senior improve their dental health.

How to switch your senior dog to a raw diet

The Straight Swap

Keep it simple. This method works for 99% of dogs. Feed your dog the last meal of their old food the night before, leave it 12 hours & switch to their new healthy raw the following morning.

Phased feeding

99% of dogs will transition to raw smoothly with a straight swap. For some dogs, with sensitive stomachs or health dispositions, a phased approach over 4 days may be better. 

How old age affects your dog

Our loveable dogs age quicker than we do, they have a different metabolic clock which ticks much faster than ours. Our senior dogs can also display symptoms of old age quicker than we do.  Some of the most common symptoms of ageing in our dogs are:

  • Arthritis
  • Decreasing mobility
  • Joint issues
  • Poorer digestion and ability to assimilate protein
  • Increased likelihood of food intolerances, sensitivities & allergies
  • Decreased energy
  • Increased likelihood for auto-immune diseases.
  • Tooth and gum decay

14 years on raw!

Large breed Labradoodles Hector (15) and his 13yr old son Archie have been raw fed for 14 years! They have been fed B&D premium Complete for the last 2 years and are living proof that a raw diet is the most healthy and natural way of feeding. Both still enjoy 2x long walks daily and are as bright and eager as they were 10 years ago.

Happy Healthy Dog

My boy Zack (a Lhasa apso) is 11 years old and has been on Bella & Duke for about a year. Before switching he was an extremely fussy eater and would only eat cooked chicken. He had various health issues in the past including gastroenteritis. He was on medication for this. Since switching to Bella & Duke all his health issues have gone and he is now a happy healthy dog. He is always sitting every morning and evening waiting for his meals.

Mark Scott

I am one of the co-founders of Bella & Duke, I am not a vet or a nutritionist, I am however passionate about dogs and people and I have a lot of questions! These questions started me off on a journey to find out why so many cats and dogs are getting ill. I have fortunately met and teamed up with real experts who have the same passion and view on life as I do. This makes working with the team at Bella & Duke the most fulfilling and exciting thing I've done. The questions are sometimes more important than the answers.
