Barking Heads "Golden Years" is a light calorie diet for senior dogs, specially formulated to provide dietary and nutritional support throughout the ageing process. Aimed at dogs 7 years and up, it combines a carefully selected formula of digestible ingredients to accommodate the needs of slower digestions and metabolisms, so you can be assured your older dog is receiving the very best dietary care. With delicious and nutritious salmon and chicken- rich sources of protein- and wholesome brown rice to satisfy appetite for longer between mealtimes and encourage weight maintenance. The diet also contains a beneficial blend of natural antioxidants to strengthen your dog's defenses, and advanced glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate to provide joint and skeletal support for a healthy and mobile dog.

Golden Years is now also available in a wet variety containing freshly prepared British chicken, salmon, brown rice, vegetables, herbs and hip & joint care, all gently steamed to help put a spring back in their step. There are also no artificial colourings, flavourings or preservatives, and no GM ingredients.

Both dogs are keen to eat this food, with Tank often preferring to have just a bowl of dry food, whereas Scud prefers half wet and half dry food. It satisfies their appetites well.

Great. Charlie is an old boy, so we comply with his feeding wishes. He has lilys kitchen and thoroughly enjoys it, but it's expensive, so I mix it with the Golden Years. He loves the flavours and if he's happy, we're happy.

I have a 10 year old boxer that is now getting heavier whilst slowing up in his walks.
I want to be careful with his weight so what would be better for him - Golden Year’s or Fat Dog Slim?

  • VioVet Staff

Hi there,

It will depend on how old the dog is and also how much weight the dog is putting on currently.

If the dog has just started putting on weight we would recommend going on the Golden Years and keeping a close eye on the feeding guide for the weight the dog needs to be. If the dog is prone to putting on weight rapidly and finds it difficult to shed the weight even when feeding the correct amount than Fat Dog Slim will be ideal.

Both recipes are made using the highest quality human grade ingredients with natural oils, Omega 3 & 6 so there will be no harm caused to joints or muscles when going on either recipe.

I hope this information helps.
