Cassy is our faithful old girl, and has been slowing down quite a bit lately. I am clueless as to what ratios of protein/fat/carbs I should be looking for. All that I have been looking at recently is for 4-5 stars and grain free (I’m thinking her dandruff might be from grain, because we switched to GF a month ago and dandruff is diminishing)
I kinda got that “duh” moment – I need to be thinking more about her protein and carbs, right?
What amount of protein/fat/carbs do you suggest for a senior Labrador? She is mostly outdoors, so I’m thinking maybe I should go a bit higher on protein? (Just bought her a bag of NutriSource GF to try…realized it’s only 20%. I might try BB wilderness or back to basics next, since they have high protein)
For now, dry is our only option. I might get into canned eventually, but not right now.
