Arden Grange Large Senior Dry Dog Food - Fresh Chicken & Rice
Arden Grange dog senior chicken & rice has everything most mature dogs need to stay healthy and strong as they grow older.
How it works
This food contains a special mix of ingredients that are designed to benefit older dogs. A combination of fresh chicken and chicken meal gives them an energy-boosting source of protein that tastes delicious. Fish oils and glucosamine can help boost your pet's joint health, so they can still stay active.
Prebiotics contribute to keeping the good bacteria in their stomach in balance, so they're less likely to suffer from intestinal or digestion-related problems. Fat content is kept low, keeping your dog in good shape even if they're less active.
- low in fat
- high in fish oils and glucosamine to boost joint health
- delicious food with fresh chicken
- helps to combat age related health problems
- prebiotics contribute to stomach and digestive health.
When to use it
As your dog gets older, they start to enjoy taking things easy a little more. What they eat, however, often needs to be carefully balanced to ensure that they don't put on weight as a result. Arden Grange dog senior chicken & rice has a lower fat content than many standard foods, helping to regulate your pet's body weight.
Mature dogs are also more likely to develop joint problems. If you notice that they're less enthusiastic about running or walking, or seem to be having trouble doing so, this could be a sign of poor joint health. This food contains plenty of glucosamine and fish oils, which can both help to promote stronger cartilage for less painful joints. If your dog seems to have recurring issues, it's always good to seek advice from your vet.

Cost Effective Pet Food Nutrition
Arden Grange is unique in that when developing our products, we create the recipe first and then fix a price. We don't set a price first and then source the ingredients to fall within a specific cost bracket. This means we can guarantee that every single one of the nutrients used is super premium quality, offering the best nutrition for your pet. We manufacture to a fixed recipe, and will never reduce the quality of our ingredients because of market prices.
It is impossible to compare two different manufacturer's feeds price-wise bag for bag. This is because the feeding recommendations may differ. To make a true comparison, you would need to work out the daily feeding cost.
Arden Grange Canine Senior dog food can often work out cheaper than you think with a 12kg bag containing 60 days of feeding with an average monthly feeding cost from £19. 25p, based on the average requirement of a 20kg adult dog with normal activity*
*Based on the recommended manufacturer retail price for the largest available bag size, and recommended feeding guidelines from the manufacturer.
Recommended Feeding Chart
If using Arden Grange Partners in conjunction with Arden Grange Complete dry foods, follow guidelines on the dry food bag but reduce the amount you feed by 40grms for every 120gms of Partners fed.
Feeding The Correct Amount
It is important to remember however that these figures are guidelines only, and there are several factors to be taken into account when assessing your pet's nutritional requirements : -
- Activity level
- Temperament (stressed animals burn off more calories than relaxed ones)
- Metabolism (every animal is an individual with his or her own speed of metabolism; this means that 2 dogs of the same age, breed and weight could have different daily calorie requirements)
In order to provide the correct portions when feeding your dog or cat, it is also helpful to assess your pet's appetite, visual appearance and stools. Whilst poo watching does not sound particularly pleasant, it is one of the best indicators of health. Increased frequency of passing faeces, production of large quantities of stools of loose motions are often frequent signs that an animal is receiving more food than he or she requires.
It is important to obtain an accurate weight for your cat or dog, and also to weigh out the food. Guessing on both accounts gives a large margin of error.
Changing Food Brands
For a successful diet change, we recommend following the feeding pattern below. The daily feeding amount should be split into two equal amounts and the proportions of new food increased over the first week as illustrated.
TOP TIPS: For those dogs who do not make eating a priority, here are some additional points:
- Reduce the number of tit-bits given during the introductory period
- If your dog has been used to eating wet food, moisten with warm water.

Good quality product for our older dogsI've always fed my terrier Arden Grange but moved to the Senior brand this month as she is approaching 8 year old. Had no problems with the switch and she enjoys it just as much. Very happy with the brand.
My golden oldies seem to like itDecided that we should switch from large dog Arden Grange to Senior, as both dogs are getting older. Slowly changed from old to the senior over the past month. The only issue is that they tend to bolt it down as it's a much smaller kibble than they were eating.
Excellent FoodPleased with this food, suits our 6 year old lab who had a cruciate ligament op a couple of years ago. Would have given 5 stars but the very thick plastic bag is so sharp on the corners I've scratched myself a couple of times on it.
Older dogsGreat for older dogs mild on stomach My dog has allergies and this suits perfectly
Great value for top quality dog foodMy spaniel loves the good, great price, quick efficient delivery.
