Just curious about anybody's opinions regarding the necessity of switching to a "senior" dog food when the pups start getting older.
I have heard both schools of thought on this. Folks say it's either necessary or it's not. I don't feed one of those "all life stages" foods (and buying one means either a 90 mile trip or mail-order, both of which are options I'd like to avoid :).
Jibini will be 9 this December and he seems increasingly less tolerant to dietary changes. Now he seems to get loose stool a lot more frequently- even though he gets NO table food, no extra tidbits, and only one type of treat (Wellness brand) very infrequently. He is currently eating Blue Buffalo adult formula, which he's eaten for probably 3 yrs now with no problems. Chloe eats it as well & she is fine, so I think it's Jibini's problem, not a funny bag of food or something.
I hope to be able to make the switch to raw once we complete our move; I plan on raising my own chickens & rabbits. But for now, kibble it is….and Blue Buffalo is the best food I can get within a reasonable distance since Tractor Supply sells it.
So any opinions? Do I try Jibini on the Blue senior diet; is there a supplement that might help, or do I need to bite the bullet & put him on another brand (suggestions?)
