Amy DePaoli: Hi! I am Amy DePaoli with Pet Valu. Today, I am going to talk to you about the different types of food available for various life stages of your dog.
There are three life stages for dogs: puppy, middle age and senior. To find out what life stage your dog is in, check with your veterinarian. There are a variety of foods available for dog with different life stages.
For example, as pet's age they need certain supplements such as chondroitin or glucosamine which help with hip and joint health. Be sure to check with your pet expert to find out what food is right for your dog.
Keep in mind any allergies that your pet may have when selecting a food and also note any changes in behavior that you may see. Be sure to talk to your pet expert about any of these issues that may come up.
As your pet gets older, make sure you're serving only the most nutritious foods. As they age, it becomes increasingly difficult for them to absorb nutrients. It's important that you measure your pet's food and serve them only the recommended amount. By following this information, you'll insure that your dog stays healthy at any age.
