Product details

Hill's Science Plan Canine Active Longevity Mature/Adult 7+ Medium is ideal for older dogs, and helps to strengthen and maintain healthy joints.

How it works
Perfect for older dogs and those with poor joints. Years of running around the park after sticks and animated play can lead to your pet's joints becoming inflamed over time. It can also wear down cartilage. This can make it harder for your dog to stay mobile as they grow older.
The mix of glucosamine and chondroitin, from natural ingredients, reduces inflammation and helps repair and rebuild cartilage. As well as supporting their joints, a balanced amount of sodium and phosphorus promote healthy internal organs. The ingredients are also highly digestible, which makes it easy for your pup to eat and absorb.

Key benefits

  • phosphorous and sodium for healthy vital organs
  • natural, easy-to-digest ingredients 
  • glucosamine and chondroitin keep inflammation down
  • repairs cartilage
  • supports your pet's joints. 


When to use it
If your pet seems a bit reluctant to move or play as much as they used to, they could have a mobility issue. They might also appear to be in pain when walking, running, or jumping, and this can be another sign there is a problem. Make sure to consult your vet if you think they're having difficulty getting around. These issues can develop over time, often as a result of a fun, play-filled lifestyle. One way to combat any cartilage or joint problems is to ensure they have a diet high in glucosamine. Hill's Science Plan Canine Active Longevity Mature/Adult 7+ Medium has been designed to promote healthy joints, and in addition to important glucosamine content, has all the nutrition your older, mellower pal needs to enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle.

Feeding The Correct Amount

It is important to remember however that these figures are guidelines only, and there are several factors to be taken into account when assessing your pet’s nutritional requirements : -

  1. Activity level
  2. Temperament (stressed animals burn off more calories than relaxed ones)
  3. Metabolism (every animal is an individual with his or her own speed of metabolism; this means that 2 dogs of the same age, breed and weight could have different daily calorie requirements)

In order to provide the correct portions when feeding your dog or cat, it is also helpful to assess your pet’s appetite, visual appearance and stools. Whilst poo watching does not sound particularly pleasant, it is one of the best indicators of health. Increased frequency of passing faeces, production of large quantities of stools of loose motions are often frequent signs that an animal is receiving more food than he or she requires.

It is important to obtain an accurate weight for your cat or dog, and also to weigh out the food. Guessing on both accounts gives a large margin of error.

Changing Food Brands

For a successful diet change, we recommend following the feeding pattern below. The daily feeding amount should be split into two equal amounts and the proportions of new food increased over the first week as illustrated.

TOP TIPS: For those dogs who do not make eating a priority, here are some additional points:
- Reduce the number of tit-bits given during the introductory period
- If your dog has been used to eating wet food, moisten with warm water.
