What is All Life Stages Dog Food?
All pet parents know that our furry friends’ health and happiness are among our top priorities. It should come as no surprise that a pivotal component to keeping them happy and healthy is their diet. Feeding a balanced and nutritious meal that is tailored to meet their unique dietary needs at every stage of life is key to keeping them in tip-top shape.
Puppies and adult dogs have different nutritional needs. Typically, a food labeled for adult dogs is not nutritionally appropriate for puppies, and a food labeled for a puppy is not nutritionally appropriate for adults. If you have more than one pup living in your house, feeding one food can be more convenient.
If your dogs are from different life stages, then it’s important to find a food that is labeled for “All Life Stages.” Bil-Jac offers a variety of recipes that are formulated for All Life Stages:
- Adult Select Formula
- Sensitive Solutions Skin & Stomach Support
- Sensitive Solutions Digestive & Immune Support
Nutrient Profiles of All Life Stages Dog Food
The key feature of all life stages dog food is that it meets the nutritional standards set by regulatory bodies like the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO). There are three categories of pet food recognized by AAFCO:
- Adult maintenance
- All life stages
Adult Maintenance means the food is formulated to meet the nutritional needs of adult dogs. “Growth/Reproduction” is formulated for growing young dogs (puppies) and pregnant and nursing dogs. Dog food labeled for all life stages meets the nutritional needs for both “Adult Maintenance” and “Growth/Reproduction.” The food is formulated to provide a balanced and complete diet that supports the growth and development of puppies, maintains the health of adult dogs, and addresses the unique nutritional needs of senior dogs.
All Stages Dog Food and Breed Size
While all life stages dog food meets the nutritional standards for dogs of all ages, it may not always be specifically formulated to address the unique needs of larger dog breeds. If you have a larger dog breed, it is recommended to consult with a veterinarian to determine the most appropriate diet. Many different things can impact what food formula is best for your dog depending on their size, age, and specific health considerations.
Luckily, some all life stages dog food—like Bil-Jac—takes breed size into consideration. If the food is formulated for Large Breeds, it will say so in the AAFCO statement like “…formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for growth, including growth of large-size dogs (70 pounds or more as an adult).”
