Health Conditions of Senior Dog's that require a specific diet
There are some diseases like kidney disease or pancreatitis that senior dog's can get that do need a tailored diet. It is best to discuss these situations in detail with your vet.
Kidney Disease or Renal Failure in dog's
Processing high amounts of protein is thought to put too much stress on diseased kidneys. Most vets will suggest a diet lower in protein than Scratch’s 28% if your senior dog has kidney disease. It is important to get specific advice from your dog’s vet if they have Kidney problems as they still need all the essential amino acids from protein to stay healthy.
If your dog has had pancreatitis, they will generally be prescribed a low-fat diet. Scratch has 15% fat which usually is a great energy source. Vets often suggest a diet below 8% fat(on a dry basis) to avoid getting pancreatitis again.
