ASK-THE-VET: SHOULD I SWITCH THEM TO THE SENIOR FORMULA?

DonnaNewPicCroppedQuestion: I agree this [Halo] is the best food around. Our (2) cats have been on the sensitive formula for over (2) years their sensitive tummies improved right away.

Now that they are seniors over 15 years of age, should I switch them to the senior formula?

Answer: Thanks for your inquiry. Both the adult and senior Halo diets are appropriate for all adult cats–so you don’t necessarily need to make a change.

The senior diet is a chicken and salmon recipe. It has a bit lower protein and lower fat content that the adult diets.

It is also a little lower in calories so if your senior cat is having issues with being overweight, the lower calories may be a plus. It is best to speak to your veterinarian to see if there are any special nutritional needs your cats currently have.

Good luck.
