Why It’s Great for Your Dog
As much as we love and care for our pets, they inevitably get older and often pack on a few extra pounds. We created CANIDAE® Platinum® Life Stages formula specifically with senior and overweight dogs in mind. All of our premium dog foods use quality ingredients. If your senior dog needs an energy boost and relief from joint pain—or if your adult dog has gained a few pounds and needs an appetite-satisfying food that will keep them lean and healthy—this is the food for your canine companion.

What Goes Into It
In this formula we include chicken meal, turkey meal, lamb meal and fish meal—packing it with protein for healthy muscle maintenance—and other healthy ingredients like peas, papaya, and sage. Wholesome nutritional brown and white rice, along with other diversified carbohydrates like cracked pearl barley, keep your dog full all day and are highly digestible. You’ll also find high levels of glucosamine and chondroitin for healthy bones and joints and omega 3 fatty acids to ward off joint paint and keep coats beautiful. The ingredients in this recipe come together to provide great nutrition and a great taste your dog will love!
