Helping pet parents understand the nutritional challenges of a senior pet

November 1, 2021

We all love senior pets! Graying bodies, and sweet expressions of long term devotion, and experiences. As animals, including humans, age, their energy requirements along with how effective the body utilizes that energy changes. Looking beyond the gray hairs, what do we need to consider when determining an appropriate diet for senior pets? What nutrients should the calories come from? When looking at a bag of food, how can I determine if it’s meant for a senior pet? Once we understand some of the ins and outs of senior nutrition, how do we instill the value of senior nutrition in our pet parents? This interactive session will use some real life examples to help guide you through the nutrition journey with a pet and the pet parent.
