Yeah, a friend of mine made the same comment today.
"Roscoe's not old, he's middle-age for a beagle "

Well he really showed his "young-ness" this weekend when he chased a possum that's decided to take up residence in our backyard, up a treelaugh out loud

I did get the Senior Wellness canned food (though I'm not a fan of wet food) to mix in with his dry food.
I'm surprised, but it's helped with him eating so fast ; nothing else has worked .

Hahahha, Chocolate made a good point . I don't know too many seniors that get new food, they just adjust their diet and get supplements. laugh out loud

And to answer another poster's question, a beagles life-span is about 12-15 years & he's doing pretty well.
I'm definitely going to be doing more research, I simply am not sure where to start .
There seems I have a lot more to learn on dog nutritionlaugh out loud

Roscoe doesn't act like a senior dog really, people are generally surprised when I tell them he's turning 7 this year ..in August... ( it keeps slipping my mind, NOTE TO SELF laugh out loud)naughty
I think the only thing that really gives away his age is the white hairs on his face and things I notice since I know him so well (as most dog owners do know their dogs like the back of their hand)
His vet hasn't pushed Senior food on us either, he's actually very helpful & has never encouraged us to do anything that doesn't need to be done or benefit Roscoe.

Thanks!
After I posted that I did run to the store and got his food, so I didn't have a chance to read over the material before hand-but I will now. I decided to get the Wellness Complete Health (the fish formula) and about two cans of Wellness ...Core... smile and I bought him a toothbrush & some toothpaste.
Because I get the 30lb bags of food , I'll definitely have more time to look and do more research on foods and nutrition.
So I will be taking a look at those articles way to go

Thanks guys ! BOL; I wasn't sure if he was "ready" for senior food just yet; I was just assuming that at seven dogs should start eating it .
He still plays like a puppy, is nowhere near overweight ( we keep healthy & fit) & is relatively healthy --excluding his eyes & hips .


But now that we've taken the senior food off the list, I'm back at square one . What food to pick ? He has a sensitive stomach && I'm not too fond of the liver or beef for him . I much prefer chicken or fish .

I've been looking at the Wellness Core; but I don't really understand the difference...

Well, Roscoe is getting on in years now & his food is running low. Today I'll be going on a trip to get his new food, but I'm not sure whether not he should be on senior dog food yet. shrug

I thought of calling and talking to his vet (but they're closed on Sundays) but I heard that most veterinarians aren't nutritionists & may not be my best bet for questioning. (though I do have confidence in Dr. Honaker)

Currently I've been switching back between Solid Gold and Wellness, two foods I'd really rather stick with. I've looked on both the websites at their senior food formulas and am stuck between which once to choose...

Roscoe is moderately active, he likes to run around and play; we're becoming more active because he will be coming to my job, and we've been working out togetherlaugh out loud
But on the other side, he has arthiritis in his hips & lower spine and his eyes are deteriorating.

The only issue I've had with Solid Gold was with Hund-N-Flocken, it was very rich and roscoe began to eat his stool.



So any insight?...

Like the previous poster said, there is no such thing as a "English" Pit Bull.
There is the American Pit Bull Terrier, Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, and Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

Perhaps the owner of the dog bred english bull dogs and APBT together and decided to give it a "cutesy" "designer" name?
Or it is someone who clearly doesn't know about their bully breeds.

If you're looking to rescue and are located in the United States, you can try Petfinder to search for adoptable dogs in your area smile
