As your dog ages, their body may start to function less efficiently and they become more lethargic. To encourage appetite and ensure your dog receives the very best in nutrition, Adult Senior has been specially formulated with an optimal combination of chicken and fish, resulting in a fantastically palatable food that will encourage even the fussiest dog to eat.
It is important to encourage activity in the older dog, and to help maintain joint mobility and longevity. Glucosamine, chondroitin sulphate and MSM are added to Adult Senior, to help support the joints into the senior years.
As your dog ages, the skin may become less elastic and the condition of the coat may start to deteriorate with the hair becoming more brittle and harsh to the touch. A balanced ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 essential oils are added to Adult Senior dog food to help protect the skin, and maintain a glossy coat.
CLINIVET Adult Senior is suitable for all breeds of dogs from five to seven years upwards

Clinivet is formulated without wheat, beef, lamb and soya products. These ingredients are known to be common allergens, and can contribute to conditions such as digestive upsets, dry, flaky and itchy skin, and a dull coat. By excluding these products from the diet, it is possible to reduce the occurrence of these allergic reactions.
Protects - Protected Immunity
A strong immune system is vital in keeping the body strong and healthy. This important defence mechanism protects the body from unwanted pathogens, and cells from oxidative damage.
A healthy gut helps protect against indigestion and promote a healthy gut environment and can reduce the incidence of colitis and diarrhoea. The addition of fructo-oligosaccharides and mono-oligosaccharides to Clinivet boosts levels of friendly gut bacteria and limit the growth of less friendly bacteria.
A shiny coat and healthy skin are signs of a healthy body. A balanced Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio is thought to reduce the incidence of inflammatory responses, such as dry, itchy, flaky skin, arthritis, visual defects, cancer and infertility. Essential oils from fish and linseeds are excellent sources of these essential fatty acids and help support the coat and skin condition.
The bones and joints of dogs are placed under extreme stress and strain after intense exercise. This can cause the cells in the bones to breakdown, the cartilage to thin, and fragments to break off causing pain and swelling in the joint. Glucosamine sulphate, chondroitin sulphate and Methyl-Sulphonyl-Methane (MSM) are natural sugars which help preserve the joint integrity, and help aid conditions such as arthritis, by reducing pain and inflammation in the joint.
Muscles cramp when they contract (tighten) without you meaning to do so. This is more common when muscles are overused or injured, or when you have low levels of minerals and electrolytes in your body and can be very painful.
A strong skeleton is needed to provide support for the body. It helps protect all internal organs from damage and provide the structure for muscles to attach so that the body can move. A correct balance of pH and minerals help promote a strong skeleton and help aid a speedy repair, should the body become damaged.
