Choosing the Best Dog Food for a Senior Brittany

The Brittany is often a bright, fun-loving and upbeat breed. Their demeanor is often times described as friendly. But as the dog ages and reaches its senior years, their temperament can become less predictable. While a Brittany typically needs lots of activity, as they get older their energy levels tend to gradually fade which can lead to obesity. A dutiful owner of a Brittany should take time to find the right dog food for a senior Brittany to help keep energy levels up and their weight controlled.

If you own a senior Brittany you've likely enjoyed many years of a bright, fun-loving and upbeat companion. Now in the Brittany's senior years you're likely seeing signs of aging mainly in the form of decreased energy levels. Bred to be a hunter, the Brittany was developed to withstand a day of the hunt. Running, swimming, and hunting for hours took a lot of energy. . . and they had it back then. Older now, a senior Brittany may still enjoy a ball toss or a frisbee to help keep obesity at bay. They'd also benefit from a dog food more suited for weight control while being properly proportioned for their needs.

The Brittany may not have lived as long in years past, but it's important to note that your Brittany can live as long as 14 years or more today. How? The key to helping a senior Brittany live a full and long life all lies in selecting the best dog food for a senior Brittany and making sure it gets proper exercise. The average weight of an Brittany is 30-40 pounds. If your senior Brittany is falling outside of that range, you should first consider a healthy dog food for a senior Brittany (like the dog food Spot & Tango offers). Then, make sure your dog is getting appropriate exercise.


As your Brittany ages and lifestyle changes so should the food that they eat. Starting off their life, the Brittany needs special nutrients to grow, as it gets older these needs may change depending upon how active or inactive its lifestyle is. Your Brittany will need special nutrients to grow, however, as it gets older the nutrients will likely change as your dog goes from active to less active. Mature Brittany dogs need more oil such as fish oil in their diet to lubricate their bones versus protein as they slow down. Brittanys are prone to getting cold so care must be taken in colder climates. You might want to wrap your Brittany in a blanket or dress it in a sweater in order to keep it warm. Like most other dogs as they age they can develop hip problems as well as knee and joint issues. Their diet should take into consideration their senior age along with their activity levels. Well-balanced nutrient-based dog food can help relieve your aging dog's health issues such as arthritis.
