    I am trying to change my 2 older golden’s to a higher protein diet, and am getting confused on all of the information and recommendations. When looking at these food and the breakdown, it seems the ratios are random. The article I read, which mimick’s a wolf’s diet is 60-70% protein, 20-30 % fat, and little, if any carbohydrates.

    Any suggestions? Info?

    Thanks!

    Orijen Senior is a good senior dry kibble. Probably the best one out there.

    Are you sure you need that much fat in a diet? Ditto on the protein. I agree that a good Senior food is the way to go. It’s a fact that too much protein is as bad as not enough and we all know that too much fat isn’t good. I have a dog that has had stomach problems all of her life. I feed her Annamaet lean and am finally off of RX food. Orijen Senior is a great food too. This is of course my opinion and I hope you find the right mix for your pup. 🙂
