Saffy is 8 in May and still having Skinners Duck & Rice (gluten free). She has a lovely glossy coat and still bounces around.

Xziva is 8,5 now and still eating the same, we tried her on lamb/rice but she didn't tolerate that very well, she's doing well on her kibble and she has a meat day once a week.

Hello you, ;) April was ten in July and always been on the same food.
Tinned and dry kibble.
Back legs not good, covered in lumps and partly incontinenet but she is still running like a gazelle when first let off.
We do about two miles a day.
Feel blessed we still have her.
I'd stick with what you have, a bit of "If it ain't broke don't mend it"

Love lizzi and April.
Hugs to you all and fudge xx

Our Frankie is only 6yrs old but I have never changed any of our dog's food as they get older unless they develop any specific health issues that might force a change. The thing I might suggest is a bit of extra support for joints such as Glucosamine etc.
