Nutriment’s Senior Working Dog Formula is a complete food for active seniors, containing 75% fresh meat, offal, tripe and bone, along with a nutritious blend of vegetables and superfoods.
In general, dogs of seven years or more start taking life a bit easier, and as a result their nutritional needs are different to those of younger dogs. In large breeds, this change can occur even earlier. Senior dogs are less active with a slower metabolism, so can be prone to gain weight, and they may also require support for their ageing joints and immune system. They therefore require a high quality tasty diet such as Nutriment's Senior Formula with easy to digest protein, lower calories and a balance of essential nutrients.
The Nutriment Senior Working Dog Formula is available in the 500g tub and 1.4kg chub

Defrost thoroughly* and feed 2-3% of the Adult dog's ideal body weight per day, ideally spread over two meals.
Nutriment foods are intended to be fed to your dog raw, to mimic the raw meat, bones, fruit and vegetables the animal would eat naturally in the wild.
*To defrost the product, we suggest leaving somewhere cool (not warm) overnight. If you forget to take food out to defrost, you may microwave it on defrost, but be careful NOT to allow the food to cook.
If the food is still partially frozen at feeding time, add some warm water from a kettle and allow to sit for five minutes.
You should therefore never cook our products before feeding to your pet
