Nutrition

As dogs get older, their nutritional needs change as much as their health conditions. They have special digestive needs and are less active. This plays into the type of food they require. Many breeds are considered mature by the time they reach seven years old. But if your dog is a larger breed you may consider adjusting their dietary habits by the time they reach five based on their health conditions and needs.
