Flint River Ranch PLUS Dog Food Formula
The Flint River Ranch Senior PLUS
formula is an all-natural, oven-baked ultra premium gourmet health food for inactive, overweight, or older dogs
that contains lower fat
(1/3 less) and fewer calories
(1/3 fewer) than our original premium dog food
formula. The supportive diet also includes
a wholesome and rich source of Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate
, which studies show may help to lubricate joints and inhibit enzymes that break down cartilage.
Designed to help stimulate your dog's body to produce more glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), the Senior PLUS formula may help with the hydration of joints because of its polyanionic characteristics, which provide the lubrication needed in joints for proper function.
There is no need to wait for the symptoms of arthritis to become pronounced to start using the PLUS pet food formula. A regular diet of Flint River Ranch PLUS can even be started in young adult dogs known to have a genetic predisposition to osteoarthritis, joint dysplasia (hip, elbow, knee or shoulder), degenerative disc disease, osteochondrodysplasia, or related health issue.
Be sure to supplement the Senior PLUS formula with our tasty Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate-fortified Jubilee Wafer treats.
We're such strong believers in Flint River Ranch premium pet foods that we encourage you to give your best friend(s) the Flint River Ranch Taste Test
— let your dogs show you which food they prefer, and then take comfort in knowing you'll be feeding them the absolute best in nutrition and taste
and, through A+ Flint River Ranch
, at the best possible price

Because Flint River Ranch premium dog food formulas are nutrient-dense, you should feed 20%-25% less than regular dog foods
. Each serving delivers maximum nutrition without unnecessary fillers
, so you'll also notice a lower stool volume and less clean-up.
It's best to introduce Flint River Ranch Super Premium foods by mixing with your dog's current food and increasing the amount of Flint River Ranch over several days. It will take time for your dog to adjust to the rich, easy to digest, all natural quality. A sudden change in any food source may be a shock to your dog's digestive system. You may notice loose stool. If so, reduce the amount being fed until your dog adjusts.
Feed your dog once or twice a day unless the breed is prone to bloating or excessive weight gain
), in which case we recommend feeding three smaller meals throughout the day. Food requirements vary depending on climate, breed of dog and exercise activity. Feed an amount that will maintain your dog's weight, and make sure to always have fresh water available.
