Frequently Asked Questions
Is Lily’s Kitchen appropriate for my elderly pet?
Senior pets are those aged over around seven or eight years old. However, this does depend on the size and breed, with large and giant breeds having shorter life expectancies than small dogs. Elderly pets have specific dietary requirements - they have smaller appetites and require energy dense, highly digestible food.
Lily's Kitchen food can meet a senior pet’s needs. Firstly, because our foods contain top quality ingredients and are all very low in grains or completely grain free, they are easier for the older animal to digest. Using natural ingredients - including real meat and organs - means high quality proteins so there is much less strain put on the body to process food.
Our Marvellously Mature grain free dry recipe for cats supports an ageing cat’s health because it contains glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM for joint health support, prebiotics for tummy support and omega 3’s that may help brain function.
And our Senior recipe for wise and wonderful dogs is also packed with glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM to support healthy, supple joints.
With both wet and dry senior recipes filled with the most delicious, natural ingredients, even the fussiest oldie can enjoy staying fit as a fiddle.
