" When your dog reaches its senior years, their nutritional requirements begin to change as they adopt a more sedentary life. Your dog may be more prone to joint and muscle difficulties or they may develop certain food sensitivities to things that once caused them no problems at all. Just like humans, as our dogs advance in years, they need to be properly cared for and this includes providing them with the correct balance of nutrition specific to their maturity.
Nature's Harvest Senior is a gently steamed complete wet food for mature dogs made with chicken & brown rice. It's a simple formula that is kind to your dog's digestive system, which may become sluggish as they get older. Our protein source, chicken, is of human grade which means that the chicken used in our Nature's Harvest Senior food can also be eaten by humans too. It's not uncommon for some dog foods to be made with parts of protein sources that are not for human consumption.
Why chicken? We've chosen chicken with its high vitamin, protein and fat content because most dogs can digest poultry easily.
Why brown rice? We use brown rice to add fibre which aids in the binding of the food, allowing for a firm stool which is always good if you are the one doing the picking up! Fibre also keeps dogs regular and this becomes more important for aging digestive systems found in senior dogs.
Why steam? Steaming allows the food to cook gently over a longer period keeping the food moist without destroying all the nutrients within.
Nature's Harvest Senior does not contain any meat or vegetable nasties, fillers, artificial flavours, colours or preservatives that are often found in other pet foods. These can trigger allergies in older dogs that lead to unnecessary health problems.
For senior dogs, it's all about the joints and limbs. That's why we boost our recipes for Nature's Harvest Senior with added glucosamine & chondroitin to support the maintenance of joints and limbs. We also include natural rubbed herbs and vitamin C to promote antioxidant properties that protects cells from damage from free radicals (nasty, invisible molecules) present in the environment, as well as adding yeast extract which strengthens immune systems and staves away sniffles that older dogs with more mature immune systems may be prone to. We also add good fats such as omega 3 and 6 which are important for the maintenance of healthy skin and glossy coats. As your dog gets older, there's no reason why they can't maintain their good looks!! "
Suitable for all breeds of dogs
Private label (or white label) pet foods are pre-formulated recipes that companies can order from certain factories, add their own label or packaging and retail to the public as their own brand. They are therefore available from numerous suppliers. Click here for more info.
This is the ingredients list as printed on the packaging or manufacturer's website.
Think of the 'mixing bowl' composition like a recipe - all the ingredients you would need to put in a 'mixing bowl' in order to make the food.
Ingredients have to be listed in descending order of their weight so the higher it appears, the more there is.
Ingredients that we believe to be controversial or inferior are highlighted in yellow with particularly low grade, highly contentious or excessively vague ingredients in red.
Information in italics is not usually avaialble on the ingredients list but has been provided to us by the manufacturer to help with our ratings.
As fed composition
While the 'mixing bowl' composition is useful for knowing what went into the food, it doesn't always reflect what your dog is actually eating. This is because the processes that turn the ingredients into the finished pet food can significantly alter the relative weights of the ingredients.
For this reason we've calculated the approximate 'as fed' percentages for the main ingredient categories in the finished product.
Please note that these figures are very approximate. They are estimates based on the information provided by the manufacturer in the ingredients list so the clearer the terminology and the more percentages they provide, the more accurate our estimates will be. Wherever information is lacking, we always assume the worst.
◉ Meat ingredients: includes all meat and fish ingredients except isolated fats/oils.
◉Added oils and fats: includes all isolated oil and fat ingredients.
◉ Carb-rich ingredients: includes all ingredients derived from grains, pseudo-grains, potatoes and other starchy root vegetables, sweet potato and legumes (except whole peas which are categorised under fruit and veg) except for isolated protein and extracted oils. Also includes fibre supplements.
◉ Fruit and veg: includes all whole vegetables and fruits.
◉ Other: all other ingredients. Mostly made up by nutritional supplements and additives.
