Be sure to carefully monitor your dog's weight. Avoid overfeeding, as obesity is hard on an aging dog's body.

How to Use
  • Amount to serve varies by weight, activity level, and other factors.
  • Pour food straight from the bag into your dog's bowl or mix with a small amount of water.

Make the switch to Blue Buffalo Basics Senior Dry Dog Food gradually, as upset stomachs can occur otherwise. Starting with a mixture of 25 percent Basics and 75 percent old food and gradually increasing the Basics over a 2-week period is best. Also, always make sure your pet has plenty of fresh clean water available to drink.

At what age do you suggest putting a dog on the senior dog food ?

Asked by: Berny
Unlike humans where a senior is defined as age 65 and older, there is no hard-and-fast rule regarding when a dog is considered a senior. This is because, in general, a dog's lifespan will vary depending upon the size of the dog. Large or giant breed dogs tend to have a shorter lifespan, and therefore become "senior" at an earlier age than do smaller dogs. A rough guide is that dogs are considered to be senior between 5 and 10 years of age, with giant breeds at the shorter end of the spectrum and smaller dogs becoming seniors at a later age.
