As dogs age, they may require food designed to help reduce nutrient excesses that could be harmful to their system. For example, high levels of sodium, phosphorus and protein can cause increased workload in the kidneys and heart. Kidneys are very important to the health of your dogs because they remove waste substances from the blood and maintain the normal balance of fluid and minerals within the body. Once kidney damage occurs, the consequences are usually irreversible. The heart is the most important organ in you pets body, and factors such as age or weight may affect its function. Poor heart health can affect your dogs lifestyle and mood. Because the food your dog eats plays an important role in his or her overall health and well-being, at Hills, nutritionists and veterinarians developed clinical nutrition especially formulated to support your older dogs kidneys and heart for overall health.
