The amount of food your dog needs will vary depending on breed, activity level, age and climate. Use our feeding chart as a guide, adjusting the quantity fed to achieve your dog’s ideal weight. We suggest feeding twice a day. Provide fresh, clean water at all times. Regular exercise will help maintain a healthy body weight. Love, attention and tummy rubs should be given freely, as often as possible.

Transition Instructions

It’s important to slowly transition your pet to a new food so their system has a chance to adapt to the change. The transition period should be at minimum, ten days and could take upwards of two weeks, depending on your pet’s sensitivity to change:

Day 1 & 2: Feed 80% of your pet’s old food with 20% of the new food.

Day 3 & 4: Feed 60% of your pet’s old food with 40% of the new food.

Day 5 & 6: Feed 40% of your pet’s old food with 60% of the new food.

Day 7, 8 & 9: Feed 20% of your pet’s old food with 80% of the new food.

Day 10 & Forever: Feed 100% new food

    Way too big pieces

    By on

    I had to dispose of this huge bag at the dump. I bought it for my ten year old Golden. The pieces of kibble were huge AND hard as a brick. No hot broth was able to allow me to cut them. What a waste of money! I couldn’t donate because the bag was open.

    Great so far for senior great dane

    By on

    Great Dane going on 8 years old and had been feeding Precise Holistic Large Adult for many years up until they closed up shop. Decided to try this food as was also recommended for Danes. First bag we received had a couple box cutter looking slices in it and box was perfect so probably not from shipping. That was a bit of a bummer but they sent a replacement and since then they have arrived in good shape. Dog liked this food so much he was leaving the old food in the bowl when it was mixed and only eating the new stuff. So now we are hooked on the NOW Fresh senior recipe. Pricey food but nothing like I spent on food when he was younger since he doesn't eat as much anymore (also used to have 2 Great Dane going on 8 years old and had been feeding Precise Holistic Large Adult for many years up until they closed up shop.

    Good Ingredients

    By on

    This dry food has everything we wanted for our ‘aging’ dog, but unfortunately the kibble is 2-3 times the size of what our guy is used to, so he would eat it in small ‘hand’ amounts, but would not as a main meal. I’m not knocking the product, just saying our guy did not like the size!

    Kibble too big for seniors

    By on

    Even though it is LARGE breed, they are seniors and a lot of senior dogs don’t have a full set of teeth or strong teeth. This kibble is too hard to even break with your hands.

    Great for Seniors

    By on

    My 15 year old dog has been eating this product for the past 5 years. I saw an immediate positive change in her coat when we transitioned to this new kibble. I also add fresh cooked chicken, a bit of good wet food, steamed vegetables, and a bit of yogurt to her daily diet. Kibble alone is not the best choice for nutrition, but combining with joint supplements and recommended medication for liver function has helped this lady still jog around the house, play, and function normally.

    Excellent food AND customer service from Canada!

    By on

    I contacted Petcurean as I wanted to transition my senior dog from the Hills Metabolic and Mobility now that she lost the weight she needed to. I had used their Go! food with 2 of my younger dogs in the past, and they did great on it. But wasn’t sure which food would work best for my 10yr old Lab X. The customer service at Petcurean was absolutely excellent!!!!!! They provided information regarding future glucosamine supplementation in consultation with my vet, and mailed me a coupon for a free 25lb bag of the NOW Fresh for Large Breeds Senior. My dog LOVED this food immediately and there were zero gastrointestinal issues getting her on this food 100%. Also her bowel movements are much smaller I contacted Petcurean as I wanted to transition my senior dog from the Hills Metabolic and Mobility now that she lost the weight she needed to.

    New Product for Us and Worked Well!

    By on

    I ordered the 12 lb bag as a trial for my 120 lb bulldog and he loves it. The larger bites allow him to naturally eat at a slower pace and he's overall a happier and healthier dog with a higher quality food such as this.

    So Far O.K....

    By on

    I have a 7 year old chocolate lab, he was on Wellness brand white fish & sweet potato. He had allergies and his coat was not looking as good as it should. I have been slowly converting him over to the NOW brand. Doing a 1/2 & 1/2 mix until I gradually phase out the Wellness all together. He seems to tolerate the food ok. No stomach issues so far. His skin on his belly is looking much better, the allergies seem to have calmed down and his coat is getting much softer & shinier. My only concern with this is (being this is a "senior" formula) is the size of the kibble. Sometimes my dog seems like he is having a little difficulty with it. He does always finish his bowl, but I don't like to see him I have a 7 year old chocolate lab, he was on Wellness brand white fish & sweet potato.

    NOW Sr. Weight Management Receipe Dry

    By on

    I bought this for my 100 lb lab/mix and he did not eat it. I tried all different ways to get him to eat this by adding cooked chicken, turkey and bone broth. Do not know if it is the size if the food or the taste, but I have been stuck with over a half bag of this expensive food and wish I had bought it at a place that I could have returned it or exchanged. I enjoy ordering from Chewy but this was very disappointing to have this much unused food sitting in my kitchen. My little dog did not like the NOW for small breeds. It is also sitting half empty. I have since order Zignature from you and the eat this better.
