The short answer to this is yes! You can stop reading if that is all you wanted to know! However, the detailed answer is going to shock a lot of you. Believe it or not, in most cases senior pet foods are just marketing. There are no definitions for what makes up a “senior dog food recipe” and therefore no qualifications that these foods meet such a recipe. Long story short – you can pretty much call any pet food a “senior” diet if it can be fed to an adult dog.
Stay tuned for more helpful information. I am going to do a full blog on this and an episode on The Senior Pet Podcast specific to this subject because it is a very important topic!
