    OLDER

    grain free meal prepared with extra fresh chicken and duck for older dogs

    ESSENTIAL OLDER is our complete meal, specifically formulated for older dogs. Prepared with extra fresh chicken and duck, OLDER promotes optimal conditions for a high quality of life. Our ingredients are of the highest quality; a quality you’ll learn to expect from ESSENTIALS. The meal is grain-free and follows our BOF principle.

    TIP: Dogs can start OLDER when at 2/3 of their expected lifespan.

    THE BOF PRINCIPLE
    Behavioural Optimizing Food (BOF) is the principle of developing food to match your dog’s natural diet. We’ve achieved just that. Our food ensures the stability of your dog’s sugar levels. Its high fresh meat content stimulates instincts and our low preparation temperature means your dog gets the best nutritional values. Berries, seeds, and herbs mimic the contents of the prey’s stomach and its size and consistency ensure the meal is chewed before being swallowed.

    YOUR FIRST BAG OF ESSENTIALS?
    A big welcome from the whole team at ESSENTIAL FOODS. This first bag will usher in an amazing diet and lifestyle change for your dog. You can gradually introduce the food over 4-7 days or from day one. You can expect increased flatulence in the first week. This is your dog adjusting to his dietary change and is very normal. In this week the size of your dog’s stool will remain the same, but can be slightly softer. Once your dog has fully adjusted, you can rejoice, knowing that with ESSENTIAL FOODS, you’re giving him the best chance of achieving a full and balanced life. And remember, free help and advice is always available through our dedicated helpline.

    STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS
    We recommend using the ESSENTIAL the FOOD BOX. The food should be stored in a cool, dry place (5-18 °C); away from direct sunlight and in an air tight container. This will ensure the last meal tastes as good as the first.

    ADVICE FOR OLDER DOGS WITH DISCERNING TASTES
    In our experience the majority of older dogs find the taste of ESSENTIALS irresistible. Don’t be surprised however if your dog doesn’t finish his meal. This isn’t due to taste, but because ESSENTIALS gives a fuller feeling, which your dog will get used to in time. If your dog is especially discerning, try pouring a little heated water over the meal. Alternatively stir in 1-2 spoonfuls of ESSENTIAL the OMEGA 3 OIL.
