Your senior dog has different needs than a puppy or just an adult. Nutro ULTRA produces a blend which is ideal for your aging small breed dog, providing all of the extra support that they need as they enter their golden years.
It’s a bit low in protein for small dogs, coming in at 27%, but that’s actually fine since it’s quite likely that your older dog’s metabolism is slowing down. It’s still fairly nutrient dense, but it’s not going to cut it for dogs who still have their adult metabolisms.
On the other hand, it contains plenty of fruits and vegetables to provide vitamins, minerals, and other supporting nutrients like antioxidants. These are extremely essential for older dogs, helping to prevent some of the maladies which come with age.
Like most quality dog foods it costs quite a bit, and we wish it didn’t contain poultry since some dogs are sensitive to it. Honestly, however, by the time your dog is this age, you’ll likely know whether or not they’re allergic to it.
This is one of the best foods you can possibly get for your senior small breed dog. As long as they’re not allergic to poultry they’re definitely in good hands with this one.
