How it Works:
Blue Buffalo Chicken & Brown Rice Senior Dog Food contains real chicken, which provides dogs with a tasty way to get the protein and essential amino acids they need every day. Whole grains, like brown rice, barley, and oats, supply complex carbohydrates. And real vegetables, including whole carrots, sweet potatoes, and peas, go into every bite of the chicken & brown rice recipe. Every bag of Blue Buffalo contains small morsels called LifeSource® Bits that benefit dogs by maintaining a healthy oxidative balance and a healthy immune system throughout a dog's stages of life. LifeSource® Bits are small kibbles that contain a precise blend of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants selected by holistic veterinarians and animal nutritionists. To ensure that dogs and cats get the full benefit of these vital nutrients, LifeSource® Bits are "cold-formed" to help preserve their potency. Blue Buffalo is the only pet food that uses this manufacturing breakthrough.
- Meal Frequency: Small Breed: 1 meal per day. Medium Breed: 2 meals per day.
- Use a standard 8-oz. measuring cup.
- Always have clean, fresh water available for your pet(s).
- Transitioning Your Dog to Blue Buffalo Chicken & Brown Rice Senior Dog Food: Start by mixing 25% of Blue Buffalo Food with your dog's previous food. Gradually increase the proportion of Blue Buffalo over the next 14 days until you are giving 100% Blue Buffalo Food.
Digestive upset caused by a diet change can sometimes be prevented by mixing some non-fat plain yogurt in with your dog's food each day during the transition. The live cultures within the yogurt will help balance the flora within the digestive system and minimize flatulence or loose stools that are sometimes associated with a diet change.
