Choosing the Best Dog Food for a Senior Lagotto Romagnolo

The Lagotto Romagnolo is often an affectionate, keen and undemanding breed. Their demeanor is often times described as bright and happy. But as the dog ages and reaches its senior years, their temperament can become less predictable. While a Lagotto Romagnolo typically needs regular exercise, as they get older their energy levels tend to gradually fade which can lead to obesity. A dutiful owner of a Lagotto Romagnolo should take time to find the right dog food for a senior Lagotto Romagnolo to help keep energy levels up and their weight controlled.

If you own a senior Lagotto Romagnolo you've likely enjoyed many years with an affectionate, keen and undemanding companion. Now in the Lagotto Romagnolo's senior years you're likely seeing signs of aging mainly in the form of decreased energy levels. Bred to be a hunter, the Lagotto Romagnolo was developed to withstand a full day of hunting. Running, swimming, and actively hunting for hours took a lot of energy. . . and they had it back then. Older now, a senior Lagotto Romagnolo 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.

Early Lagotto Romagnolo survived on a diet of scraps, as little thought was given to a dog's diet during this time. The Lagotto Romagnolo may not have lived as long in years past, but it's important to note that your Lagotto Romagnolo can live as long as 17 years or more today. How? The key to helping a senior Lagotto Romagnolo live a full and long life all lies in selecting the best dog food for a senior Lagotto Romagnolo and making sure it gets proper exercise. The average weight of an Lagotto Romagnolo is 28. 5-35 pounds (male), 24-31 pounds (female). If your senior Lagotto Romagnolo is falling outside of that range, you should first consider a better dog food that’s ideal for a senior Lagotto Romagnolo (like the dog food Spot & Tango offers). Then, make sure your dog is getting appropriate exercise.


The right diet can have a huge impact on the Lagotto Romagnolo's health. A proper diet isn't just important as a puppy, but it is important that Lagotto Romagnolos have the proper diet their entire lives. As a puppy, a high-quality dog food would be beneficial to the Lagotto Romagnolo. Once matured from a puppy, the Lagotto Romagnolo should continue to consume high-quality dog food. The Lagotto Romagnolo can develop certain medical conditions over the course of its life without proper dog food. Without proper care or diet, one condition the Lagotto Romagnolos can develop is patellar luxation, which affects the dog's kneecap. Even though senior Lagotto Romagnolos can experience a number of health conditions, the right dog food can improve their health, making such an option worth looking into.
