Product details

Help your dog stay active, happy, and healthy as they get older with this Hill's Science Plan Canine Active Longevity Mature/Adult 7+ Medium food.

What it's for
Even the most active dog can develop joint problems as they get older, so what they eat can be very important in keeping your pet's muscles and joints healthy. If you notice your pooch is having a bit more trouble getting up the stairs, or running and playing than usual, then they might have a mobility issue. You should always get your vet's advice first, but Hill's Science Plan Canine Active Longevity Mature/Adult 7+ Medium can be a good replacement for your pet's standard food, as it helps to keep their weight down while strengthening their joints.

Key benefits

  • easy-to-digest ingredients make the food easy on your pet's tummy
  • special ingredients glucosamine and chondroitin repair cartilage
  • supports your dog's joint health
  • helps keep your pooch's vital organs healthy.


How it works
This food has a carefully blended mix of nutrients that help to keep your buddy healthy on the inside and out. All those years of rough-and-tumble romping can catch up with your pet as they age, and that can sometimes lead to inflamed joints and mobility problems. Because this food contains both glucosamine and chondroitin, both of which strengthen and repair joints and cartilage, it can help your pet stay as active as they like even when they're older.
It's also easy on their tummy, so it reduces the chances of any food intolerances. The sodium and phosphorous in the mix are there to help boost all your dog's vital systems too, so they stay healthy and lean even if they enjoy a good curl up in their bed more often than not.

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 : -

  1. Activity level
  2. Temperament (stressed animals burn off more calories than relaxed ones)
  3. 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.
