As dogs age, they may turn into a picky eater and/or start eating less. This change may happen suddenly, but more often than not, it's a gradual change.
Thankfully at Portland Pet Food Company, we know all about what to feed an old dog that won’t eat. In fact, it’s the reason that Katie McCarron founded the company! In 2014, Katie became concerned when her senior dog, Rosie, showed less interest in dog food and began to lose weight. When she researched what went into most dog foods on the market, she knew that she needed to come up with a better, healthier, fresher option.
Old Dogs Have Sensitive Stomachs
As they get older, dogs can develop sensitive stomachs or an aversion to dog food or treats that they’ve been for eating years. This can be a natural part of the aging process as their stomach and intestines become less able to break down and absorb nutrients as well as they once did. Signs of a sensitive stomach can include: loss of appetite, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Old Dogs Love Healthy, Natural, Whole Foods
As Rosie taught Katie, older dogs love healthy, natural, fresh, whole foods. Our fresh dog food toppers are made from human-grade meats (no byproducts or rendered foods), vegetables, and grains. All of the ingredients that go into our dog food toppers and treats are sourced in the US, most from the Pacific Northwest, near our headquarters in Portland.
The fresh dog food toppers (which can also be used as a mixer or a rotational meal) come in five delicious flavors:
- Beef and rice dog food toppers
- Salmon and rice dog food toppers
- Chicken and yams dog food toppers
- Pork and potato dog food toppers (grain-free and gluten-free)
- Turkey and yams dog food toppers (grain-free and gluten-free)
Old Dogs Do Better With Limited Ingredients
Older dogs tend to do better with a limited number of ingredients in their diets. If you look at popular dog food, treats and topper labels, you’ll see dozens of ingredients listed, most of which are indecipherable. This stands in stark contrast to our dog food toppers and treats which never contain more than 11 ingredients.
With PPFC's products, you can rest easy knowing that there are never any additives, preservatives, or synthetics. Your older dog will appreciate that they're getting the same quality foods that you feed yourself!
