Dogs Go Wild for New EVO Senior Formula
Fremont, NE – Older pets, like older people, have different nutritional needs from their younger counterparts. As pets age and they start to slow down, proper nutrition can do a lot to help them enjoy a longer life.
To help pet owners give their aging canines maximum nutrition, Natura Pet Products recently introduced the newest addition to its grain free, high protein EVO® family of pet foods and treats – EVO Senior Formula Dog Food.
Since dog breeds age at different rates, many pet owners do not know when their animal has reached senior status. Large breed dogs are typically considered senior and ready to be switched to a senior food at six years of age, while small breed canines can be started on a senior formula at eight years of age. Always check with your veterinarian if you have any concerns as to whether or not your dog is considered a senior.
EVO continues to meet pet owners’ demands for high protein, grain free diets with a new formula created with the diverse needs of senior pets in mind. EVO Senior Formula Dog Food leads the innovation pack for the pet food industry by maximizing high protein nutrition and minimizing concerns over grains to increase the quality of our aging animals’ lives.
“Today’s animals are living longer, healthier lives thanks to the many advances made in natural nutrition and veterinary care. EVO’s new senior variety helps pet owners continue to protect the health and wellbeing of their aging animals throughout their golden years, and is specifically formulated to address common aging concerns, such as joint health, weight management and vitality,” said Sean Delaney, DVM, MS, Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Nutrition and Natura’s Chief Nutrition Officer.
As dogs age, their protein needs increase. That’s why EVO Senior Formula dog food is rich in turkey and chicken protein and grain free. EVO’s new senior formula gives pet owners who want to continue to feed as nature intended, with a high protein and grain free diet, an option to support lean muscle mass and to maintain an ideal body condition throughout their dog’s senior years.
Preventing weight gain is an important part of maintaining a dog’s health in her golden years, and can be as simple as choosing lower-calorie foods that include the addition of L-carnitine. With fewer calories, EVO Senior Formula dog food helps control energy intake and weight gain in less active senior dogs.
Older pets can also face arthritis issues as their joints and cartilage wear away. The EVO senior variety includes glucosamine, chondroltin sulfate, and long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, such as EPA and DHA, which support joint health. Reduced brain function is another potential risk for aging animals. EVO’s antioxidant-enriched diet, with added vitamin E and vitamin C, can work to help slow function loss and keep pets active.
Formulated with turkey, chicken, vegetables, fruits and dairy ingredients, EVO Senior Formula Dog Food features the highest percentage of protein and the lowest carbohydrate percentage among grain free dry senior dog foods. The new exciting senior extension to our popular EVO line is available in 6.6 lb., 13.2 lb. and 28.6 lb. bags.
