Tailored to match your dog's changing needs
Reduced fat and calories to suit a slower pace
Glucosamine to help relieve stiff joints
What makes the best senior dog food?
A little slower. A little snoozier. Possibly a little extra weight too. We’ll create a unique recipe of dry food for your senior dog. And it’ll adapt as they age, so they’ll always have the right nutrition to support stiff joints, reduced exercise and even breed-specific issues and health conditions. Keeping them full of life, for life.
A recipe for life
Some dog foods jump from ‘adult’ to ‘senior’ in a single bound – but ours doesn’t. Because it’s based on everything you tell us about your dog, their unique recipe develops as they do. Update their profile as their weight and activity levels change, and we’ll update their recipe with the right mix of ingredients for every stage of their life.
How we make senior dog food just for your dog
We can adapt your dog’s unique recipe of dry food to deal with the common issues that come with age:
We add glucosamine and chondroitin to help support and maintain healthy joints and aid mobility.
Depending on the breed, older dogs lose or gain weight more easily as their metabolism slows down. We’ll create a recipe with the right calories to help your dog maintain their ideal weight.
As your dog gets older, expect fewer laps of the park and more naps after exercise. We’ll adjust the calories and fat in their food to match these lower energy levels.
Senior dogs are more likely to get things like arthritis and pancreatitis. Tell us about any health conditions your dog has and we’ll make sure their recipe reflects their specific needs.

I won a free month of food for my dog…
I won a free month of food for my dog bailey, as you imagine I was a little apprehensive as I have one of the fussiest eaters I have ever known (I work in a pet shop advising others on foods to try). She loves it 😍 and it's so much cheaper than I was...
Fantastic food and value
I cannot praise Tails enough. Our dog Charlie was always a bit fussy with his food and we found ourselves changing all the time. We decided to give Tails a go and what a transformation. We’ve been using it now for three months and he still gets just...

I have a very fussy Maltipoo
I have a very fussy Maltipoo, Tails have been so patient with me, trying to get Honeys food right. We have had tails now for the last 4 months or so, and Honey is using her kibble as her supper before bedtime. Which is great because so wouldn’t...

Absolutely amazing experience
Absolutely amazing experience. The food smells sooo good that even I want to have a bite. LOL I also love the option of controlling the date of the next delivery, as some months my dog eat less than other months.
Incredibly happy with Tails
Incredibly happy with Tails. I recommend them to everyone. I have used Tails with a Husky and German Shepherd Puppy and my older German Shepherd who had mobility issues the last years of her life and incontinence, so her food quality was very...

A very happy dog!
We re-homed a sad little English springer 6 years ago. Although she’s now a much happier dog, she has had unexplained short bouts of an upset stomach & being unwell for as long as we’ve had her. However, since changing to Tails food about 6 months...
