Hills Science Plan Canine Mature Adult 7+ Light Dry is suitable for dogs from the age of 5 (large breed) or 7 years (small breeds).
Science Plan Canine Light Senior meets the requirements of ageing dogs (5-7 years and up) who need fewer calories. Large breeds show signs of ageing earlier than smaller breeds; for this reason, dogs over 5 years (large breeds) or 7 years (small breeds) who may tend to weight gain due to reduced activity levels, neutering or other circumstances should be transferred to Science Plan Canine Light Senior.
Body weight can be controlled with a balanced low-energy food; replacing digestible calories with insoluble fibre creates a feeling of fullness, avoiding hunger pangs. Added L-carnitine limits fat deposits and maintains muscle mass.
Main aim - to avoid excessive nutrient levels, which can contribute to incidences of illness during this phase of a dog's life.
