As my sweet boys start to get up there in age and start to show more signs of their old age I've decided to take the 28 Day Challenge to see if it would help make a difference in their day to day activity. We recenlty switched their dog food to Purina ONE SmartBlend for senior dogs. I ordered it from Amazon and got it in a day with my Prime membership. The 1st ingredient in them is real poultry, meat, or fish. You can tell because there are big chunks of them in the mix. I think that is one of the big reasons my dogs love this food. They teeth are now broken and no longer sharp so they need softer food to make chewing easier.
We've reduced the amount of activity our big dog has gotten simply because he gets really tired a lot faster now. You can also tell that the joints in his legs can't handle long walks. Glucosamine helps support healthy joints as well. We make sure that they have a healthy diet so that they no extra weight makes their joints hurt even worse.
Every time I look at Gator now, I notice all the grey hair he has on his face now. But I swear they have gotten sweeter with age. We adopted Gator from a friend after he had been passed around to lots of families. We learned that he isn't like most dogs because he never used to give us kisses unless he was in a playful mood. But here lately he has taken to following me around the house and when I pet him I get a big lick on the face. It's as if he finally came out of his shell and knows we aren't going to give him away. Pulls at your heart strings, doesn't it?I've seen a huge difference in my dogs since we switched. In their coats and in their weight. They didn't like their other dry food and lost a lot of weight. They have put back on the weight and are doing much better. My sweet boys are doing well in their old age. We will continue to play with them to keep them active and snuggle until it's their time. They seem happy and healthy despite their age which makes me feel much better.
