Description

Older dogs can experience some of the same challenges as aging humans, including mobility issues, memory loss and sensitivity to certain foods. Nutro Senior Dog Food with our Senior Support System Formula helps replenish antioxidants older dogs need as they age. It also contains omega-3 fatty acids, ALA and DHA for brain and cellular health. Nutro's premium senior dog food is made with real chicken, whole brown rice and oatmeal, so it’s delicious and easy to digest. Plus, the added benefit of naturally sourced glucosamine and chondroitin will help keep your pet’s joints strong and healthy. 

Key Benefits

  • Number-one ingredient is great-tasting, U.S.-farm-raised chicken, which delivers amino acids to build muscle and maintain a healthy metabolism. Give your dog all that she needs to thrive and stay healthy.
  • Senior Support System formula delivers antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids — ALA and DHA — to promote brain, joint and cellular health. Patented levels of omega-6 fatty acid (linoleic acid), zinc and B vitamins promote healthy skin and a soft, shiny coat Naturally sourced glucosamine and chondroitin help build healthy cartilage, which means healthy joints
  • Naturally sourced glucosamine and chondroitin, the nutritional building blocks of healthy cartilage, help maintain healthy joints. The right fiber balance from whole ingredients, such as brown rice and oatmeal, promotes an ideal digestive environment to help absorb available nutrients.
  • Made with absolutely no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. This is a high quality product that is produced in the manufacturer's own facilities to ensure safety and quality.
  • Nutro's dedicated team of experts tailor their formulas to your pet's life stage and health condition. They only use natural ingredients that they directly buy and can trace back to their suppliers.

  • Great 4 Elderly Dogs!

    By on

    I have a Jack Russel mix that is 11 years old named Booker. He has been having trouble chewing his hard food lately and has been disinterested in eating popular store brand foods like Purina, etc. Booker absolutely loves it! He ate it his food in one go instead of a little bit at a time every few hours. He seemed like himself again which made me happy. I think I am going to buy this again because so far, this is the only brand he's truly eating.

  • Clean food!

    By on

    I ended up getting this food because a very knowledgeable, caring and patient person at Chewy recommended it to me after asking what I was looking for. I wanted something that was GMO free, contained no animal by products, had an animal protein source listed as the main ingredient (farm raised chicken) and had the supplements and vitamins senior dogs needed. Ding, ding, ding! This was it and the boys love it!

  • New formula is a great improvement

    By on

    I tried the old formula several times on my not picky at all labs and they would always turn their nose up at it. I really wanted them on this diet due to all the vitamins and glucosamine and Chondrotin. When I hear they improved the formula I immediately bought and bag and they gobble it down happily! Nice size and shape to kibble, has a pleasant smell. Our fur family appears much more active and less stiff and sore after play time. Our miniature dachshund has no problem eating this diet as well. Way to go nutro!

  • Porkchop loves it

    By on

    Switched our dog Porkchop to this flavor from the green bag Nutro. He's loves them both but thought we would give him a different flavor. He loves the small crunchy now that he's getting on in years

  • great product

    By on

    My Newfie just got switched to the senior formula seeing he is turning 7 in May. He really likes it, cant wait until I dish it out in his bowl. The only thing I wish for is that the kernels were larger because of the giant breed Buddy is.

  • Quality food for my kids

    By on

    I love the Nutro brand of dry dog foods as I have Poms and have fed them this food for most of their life. I have one live 16 amazing years, and have a 13 year old female plus two of her 10 year old sons. I swear by this senior dog food as it is easy for the to digest and they love it ...If you love you FUR BABIES why not feed them quality food and treats!! You will have them longer to love..

  • It's a great product for my senior dogs.

    By on

    It's such a convenience to have the dog food delivered to my door. It was such a drag to go to the store and bring it home. I purchase the larger bags for the savings. As we are senior citizens it's great to not have to lug it from the store to our car and then again into the house. Thanks. I'm finding that we will only need a bag every other month.

  • The dog wasn't thrilled with it.

    By on

    The dog doesn't seem to like this any better than the Nutro ultra Senior, which I changed from. This food the dog sheds like crazy, with the Ultra she stopped shedding completely. I am going to change back to the Nutro Ultra
