Senior Overweight dog food?
My 9 year old dog is overweight and I wanted to know what people think is the best food for a senior, overweight dog (in the UK) as I am thinking of changing her food.
Here is a site that will show you which dog foods are the best and the worst. I suggest that you get any one of the dog foods that are top rated.
Most of grocery store dog food formulas, like IAMS, Pedigree, Science Diet, Purina,and etc contain “meat and bone meal” which has been known to contain dead dogs and cats that were euthanized in animal shelters. Their bodies are picked up and bought by the truck load by “rendering plants” , that also pick up road kill, dead live stock, and etc. They are shredded, and boiled. They skim off the fat on the top of the “soup” and collected it and sell it to pet food companies as “animal fat”, the rest of the animals’ remains are crushed up, dried and sold to dog and cat food companies as meat and bone meal.
You can read more about it here.
Here is an article where the owner of a rendering plant talks about it. He says that cremating the dead shelter animals would cause pollution, and that rendering them is good.
Here is further information on what you shouldn’t see in the ingredients list in your dog’s food.
Top rated dog foods like Canidae contain good healthy ingredients.
what is the best kind of dog food for a puppy and full grown dog that has a high nutrition value in it please help i need to know asap!?
what store would i be able to get it from? can i get it at petco, petsmart, or walmart????
You should try the Canidae all life’s stages, or the Innova evo. Sure it is a little bit more exspensive, but both are honestly worth it. Your dog will get all the nutrients it needs, plus calcium.Both are a very healthy brand, and I have researched both to be one of the top most bought brands. All of these here on this site here, are all great brands, some of the best. Try one of these, very great brands,(Make sure you scroll down to see them)
Added: You should be able to get one from Centinella Pet feed. Or go to this site, the canidae store locator site, and just type in your state, and zip. I’m pretty sure if they have Canidae, they’ll probably have most good brands there too, like innova, merrick, solid gold, wellness, etc

Wellness is one of many high-quality, premium dog foods on the market and you’re doing a great job of reading the ingredient labels carefully. In my opinion, Wellness CORE is one of the highest quality commercial dog foods available.
Glucosamine Hydrocloride and Chondroitin Sulfate are used to promote joint health, both in pets and in humans. They are commonly prescribed to those who suffer from or might be prone to arthritis. The Lactobacillus and Enterococcus ingredients are probiotics which improve digestion and help the body more effectively absorb nutrients. Choline is an essential nutrient, Rosemary is an herb with many beneficial properties (some even believe that it helps repel fleas), and Chicory Root is a source of soluble fiber.
Whole Dog Journal reviews dry and canned dog foods annually and is considered by many to be the “Consumer Reports” of dog food. Their website is: http://www.whole-dog-journal.com. They do not accept advertising so they are a great source of unbiased info.
Other premium foods include Innova, Evo, Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul, Nature’s Variety, Organix, Halo Spot’s Stew and Newman’s Own Organics.
By far the best way to select a food, however, is to continue doing exactly what you’re doing: read those ingredient labels carefully and look for ingredients that sound like things you might want to eat, looking for named meat products at the very beginning of the ingredient list. (Ie: “chicken” instead of “meat by-products”.)
