Healthy Food for Your Older Active Dog Just because your dog is showing a little gray and doesn’t have pep like before, it doesn’t mean that he can’t continue to lead a healthy, active and long life. With this in mind, Natura Pet Products has once again lived up to our commitment to stay on the leading edge of healthful pet nutrition. Innova Senior Plus dog food is the result of a two year long effort to apply the latest senior dog scientific research findings to our popular Innova Senior dog food formula. Until recently, the conventional wisdom was that Senior dogs needed low fat and protein foods for optimum health. This was based on the mistaken belief that older dogs had lower nutritional requirements and were not well equipped to handle protein and fat. Recent studies actually show that older dogs have similar nutritional requirements as their younger counterparts, and actually require higher protein and fat!

Every dog, no matter what age, likes to have his own special place to sleep because it causes your canine friend to feel more secure. The perfect place is a quiet, comfortable and dry spot. Good sleep is just as important for your dog as it is for you. A good sleep translates to good health and good health means a longer and happier life. The right dog bed is essential to giving man’s best friend a top-notch place to nap and rest.

There are many styles, shapes, colors and fabrics to choose from. When shopping for a dog bed intended for a senior dog, it is important to keep some things in mind:
Evaluate the size, age and health of your dog and think about the type of bed in which your dog will be most comfortable. As your dog aged, his bones may have become arthritic. Poor circulation may mean that he does not keep as warm as he once did when he was younger. For the senior dog, it is important to provide a bed that provides warmth and a comfortable cushion.

Make sure the covering on the bed is removable and washable. A washable cover is almost a necessity since it will surely get dirty over time. Older dogs are more susceptible to illness as their immunity weakens. Washable dog beds are also a valuable asset for senior pets who are incontinent.

For older dogs you will want to consider a dog bed that is made from memory foam or filled with coil springs, like a made for humans mattress. Orthopedic dog beds will help ensure a restful night for pets with ailing joints. Choose a bed that is the right size for your dog. He should be able to lie flat, completely stretched out on his side, without hanging off of the bed.
