Who says getting older doesn't have its perks? When your kibble is filled with tasty chicken, turkey, lamb, and fish, the senior years can be the best! Canidae Platinum is formulated for senior & overweight dogs - a reduced calorie formula made for pups that aren't as active as they used to be. Cutting calories instead of portion size is the healthiest way to get overweight dogs back in tip-top shape - without risking malnutrition. Canidae Platinum includes added glucosamine and chondroitin to protect overstressed joints and increased fiber to help with digestion.

Key Benefits

  • Wholesome whole grains have complex carbohydrates for added energy
  • Added glucosamine and chondroitin to protect overstressed joints and increased fiber to help with digestion
  • Helps reduce the risk of worms with chicory root extract
  • Easily digested formula encourages eating in older pets
  • Sun-cured alfalfa keeps bones healthy in overweight dogs and mixed tocopherols preserve the food naturally

Transition Instructions

We have found that the smoothest transition from one dog food to another is to mix the foods together. When changing to CANIDAE some dogs may do better by making a gradual transition over 7-10 days. Start with 25% of the new food mixed with 75% of the previous diet and gradually increase the new while decreasing the previous until the transition is complete

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 90 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Improved my dog's health I have a 12 year old border collie who starting eating this 4 months ago. Before this food he had to be on arthritis medication for a knee he blew out when he was 2. He literally couldn't walk a flight of stairs without limping. Eventually he started reacting to the pain meds so we tried another which temporarily took away almost all his hearing. Not wanting to try another med I stepped out on a limb and tried this food to see if it would help him. About a month in his coat was very shiny and he was slowly losing weight. I also realized his knee was bugging him less. Over the last couple months he now is able to go to the dog park and tackle the stairs and doesn't limp (no meds). He is also at a healthy weight again. Really love this food and don't ever plain to change it. December 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogs luv them I have been using this for 5 years. It is so convenient to have you ship the bag. It is too heavy for me to bring home from the pet store. Your price is also good. January 7, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by This food comes highly rated by a dog magazine I subscribe to I have two chihuahuas and they just love the food. One of them has dropped 1/4 lb. since he started eating it. December 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food and excellent value! Really love this food. My 9 year old husky has been with Canidae since day 1 and it shows. His coat is perfect, his joints and teeth are healthy. The vet raves over how healthy he is. Can't beat this! December 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has real ingredients. So far my dog loves this dog food. Trying to help him loose weight. I just add some melted coconut oil in it. He loves it. The ingredients are awesome. Probiotics to help give him good bacteria. I'm planning on keepin him on this. November 28, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not for us Our dogs don't seem to like this dog food at all. It doesn't satisfy them between meals. I'll be switching back to our previous dog food November 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT dry dog food for my three senior pups! I LOVE, the products they offer, their presentation of each product is like none other! Thank you Chewy! October 31, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too Many Carbs For a senior/overweight animal, this product lacks sufficient protein and comprises too many carbs. It also includes Chicken Meal as it's first ingredient - a product known to be of inferior quality to other meat blends. October 24, 2016
