    Hi Emily
    you sound as though you have done a great job with your lab! I agree with InkedMarie in that senior dogs should have more protein. I am a strong advocate of the raw diet, yet I am not saying that you should change to this, but adding raw meat can massively increase protein in senior dogs. Here is a sample diet for you to try if you want:

    6 ounces (3/4 cup) beef heart
    2 ounces (1/4 cup) beef kidney
    1 egg

    8-12 ounces of (1-1 and a half cups) chicken necks or backs

    I have a blog on the website too if you want to read about feeding senior dogs and raw food diets. Won’t put the link on as it may be prejudicial, just google us. Anyway good luck and as an owner of senior dogs myself I can totally relate to your situation. Good luck! Dev
