Large dogs have a life expectancy of about 10 years and are exposed to the ageing process from an earlier stage than other dogs.
Signs of ageing:
Fur becomes increasingly grey, rough and dull, skin loses elasticity
Sensitive joints, increasing risk of arthrosis
Impaired heart and liver functions
A healthy diet with Royal Canin Maxi Adult 5+ Years for large dogs (26 – 45kg) from 5 years of age may help to prevent premature ageing.
Anti Age Complex for active cell protection: a synergistic complex of antioxidants (vitamins C and E, polyphenols from grapes and green tea) may protect cells from free radicals, reduced phosphorus content supports kidney functions
Optimal digestive safety: rice, fructo-oligosaccharides, EPA and DHA as well as dried sugar beet shavings contribute to nourishment of the intestinal walls and may improve stool consistency
Healthy joints: chondroitin sulphate and glucosamine together with EPA and DHA support bone and cartilage health
Tooth care: sodium polyphosphates bind salivary calcium and thus limit its contribution to the development of tartar
