Canine Choice Senior Light Small Dog Food
Canine Choice Senior Light Small is a complete grain-free dry food for older dogs (from 9 years of age) of small-sized breeds (under 10 kg). It has a high proportion of meat (45%).
Older dogs burn less energy than their younger friends. Their diet should therefore contain fewer calories to avoid unnecessary weight gain. They will also benefit from a diet rich in vitamins that boost their immune system and a higher amount of fibre, which facilitates digestion. This is exactly what’s in our formula, together with 45% lamb (the highest percentage of meat our vets recommend for older dogs).
- 45% meat
- Energy content adjusted to the metabolism of older dogs (9+ years) of small-sized breeds (under 10 kg)
- L-carnitine to maintain a healthy fat/muscle ratio
- Cranberry, rosemary and rosehip to support the immune system
- Prebiotics, probiotics, chicory and camomile to improve digestion and relieve irritation

“If you want something done right, do it yourself”– words our resident vet, Andrew, really took to heart when he’d had enough of substandard dog food and created Canine Choice. Dogs don’t need cheap fillers and allergens like beef, wheat and soya – they need a meat-rich, high-quality, balanced diet, and pet parents need to know they’re getting the best possible value for their money.
We care about what goes into your dog’s tum: Andrew and us on the Canine Choice team put loads of thought, care and expertise into the ingredients so they’re worth a read!

If this is the first time you’re feeding your dog Canine Choice, it’s easy to switch from their current food over the course of a few days. Start of by replacing 25% of their existing food with this one, then increase the amount of the new food by 25% every other day, until they’ve fully made the switch.
And one last thing – we know a feeding table isn’t the most exciting thing to study, but please do take care to read it, as your dog is likely to need a different amount of Canine Choice per day than their previous diet (as it’s so full of goodness and energy per gram). As with any diet change, it’s good to keep an eye your pet's weight.

Great for my Bichon FriseMy old Poppy loves the biscuits and absolutely thrives on them. She has more energy and stinks less; sorry Pops;.
Finally!Until now I gave our dog the Senior Medium/Large food, but the pieces are relatively large. Now we can finally feed the right food in the right pieces size. Everybody happy!
