Specific Canine CGD-M Senior Medium Breed
The Specific diets from Dechra are developed in close collaboration with veterinarians, vet nurses and experts in animal nutrition. They are divided into two main categories - Lifestage Diets for healthy cats and dogs, and Therapeutic Diets for the management of Clinical Conditions.
Specific Senior Medium Breed is the optimal diet if you want to make the most of your medium breed dog's third age.
Reduced fat level to reduce the risk of overweight and maintain optimal bodyweight
Reduced phosphorus and sodium content to reduce the risk of renal and heart problems
A slightly reduced protein level to reduce the likelihood of kidney problems
Increased fibre content gives a feeling of satiety and reduces the risk of constipation
A balanced level of omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids improves the immune system and reduces the risk of skin and joint problems. Promotes healthy skin and coat and maintains the renal function
The moderately reduced content of protein, phosphorus and sodium reduces the workload of the kidneys and the likelihood of progression of renal failure in senior dogs. The high biological value of the proteins supplies a sufficient amount of essential amino acids to the dog.
EPA and DHA are both omega-3 fatty acids with a beneficial effect on the development of healthy joints, and skin and coat health. Omega-3 fatty acids help to maintain healthy articular cartilage and normal mobility in joints of senior dogs.
The complete, balanced diet has an increased content of fibre which results in aslightly lower energy content. This minimizes the risk of obesity in senior dogs.
Taurine is an important nutrient necessary for many aspects of metabolism. Taurine is required for normal function of the myocardium and to maintain the heart muscle function in senior dogs.
Cereals, Oils and fats, Fish and fish derivatives, Vegetable protein extract, Milk and milk derivatives, Beet pulp, Hydrolysed pork protein, Mineral,s Egg and egg derivatives, Yeast (Source of mannan oligo saccharides), L-Carnitine

Great product & fast serviceVery pleased with this food. The vet recommended a renal product to help my dogs kidney function and my dog has accepted the change in diet with no problems whatsoever. The food was delivered very quickly and supplied at a competitive price. If like me you have an elderly dog who requires a lower protein diet then I recommend this one.
Specific Canine CGD-M Senior Medium BreedQuick service, arrived well packaged and in good time, and a good price compared to most kidney/renal specific foods. My dog "quite" likes it - as far as any of the kidney/renal foods she has to have. She will eat this one which is the main thing, and it seems to be keeping her problems at bay.
