We have a 15 -16 year old lab that gets senile and her coordination is off, not really alert. but we found Whole Earth Farms canned dog food and it made a world of difference, we can only afford a few cans or so for a week the rest is somewhat cheap stuff compared to Whole earth its $3 a can compared to the other thats a $1. I get mine from Atwoods. Its great stuff. stinks to high heaven, but it really made a difference in our pet.
