Great Canned Dog Food for an Older Dog

My wife bought Kirkland Signature Natures Domain canned dog food because our old dog just couldn’t handle hard food anymore. For years we feed him food that came in a bag and he always loved it. Then old age crept in, and with it bad teeth. We noticed he wasn’t eating much of his hard food and, when he did, he made noises like he felt pain. A trip to the veterinarian confirmed that he had bad teeth and that we should probably switch to some sort of soft canned food so he could still get his nutritional needs met.

The problem we faced right from the start was finding the right food. Since we only bought hard food for years, we didn’t have many ideas about what brand to try. The wife got a membership to Costco through her employer, and we decided to try their Kirkland brand. We’ve tried their brand for many different products and always had a great experience. Supposedly they contract out their store brand stuff to big name manufacturers so you can actually get very high quality goods at a much cheaper price than if you bought that manufacturer’s products under their own label.

We don’t know who makes their canned dog food, but it’s a definite hit with our old dog. He loves the stuff and makes a mess with it as he laps it down. I have to say the food smells pretty good. I wouldn’t eat it myself, but it doesn’t smell as bad as most dog foods. The best thing is that you can buy it in bulk for a great price. Also important is it’s not a fifty or sixty pound bag of dog food that I used to lug from the store to the car and then up the stairs and into the house!
