Our 13.5-year-old Goldie has had increasingly bad joint problems. Now is also the time to lose some excess pounds and make a food change. Within 6 weeks, he has lost 2kg, bowel movements have decreased and his tail is wagging again. The vet is very excited, as are we! We recommend it with a clear conscience!
I switched to this food because my 9 year old dog had borderline kidney disease. My vet recommended finding a food (not a kidney food) for senior dogs with a low phosphorus content, approx. 0.5 and nitrate approx. 0.25. The Bosch Age & Weight came closest, with all other dry foods being over. I chose dry food because my dog does not tolerate wet food, but I always add a cup of water to the food. Initially there was itching and I asked Bosch, who said that it may be due to a change in protein source, and I should try to stick with the same source. My dog now has brilliantly soft fur, no diarrhoea (despite sensitivities), super weight, but the best part is, kidney and liver health are now top. Have been feeding for around 6 months.
My 12 year old Golden Retriever is overweight because she can no long move so fast, due to a herniated disc. We went to the vet and she has lost 1kg within a month. There is no sign of flatulence. Her bowel movements are normal. I will continue with it and can only recommend for senior dogs.
