I currently have him on Purina One Senior and with some research I now know its not the best. I want a dog food with glucosamine to help with his aging body, is this a good idea? The brand I was leaning more towards is Innova Senior, and second is Chicken Soup Senior. I am curious as to what others are feeding their senior dog. Also where can I buy Innova locally in San Antonio. Tx. Thank you for your advice.
A Both Innova and Chicken Soup are good foods…I would choose the Innova, though. Here’s a list of places that sell it in San Antonio:
Compassionate Care Veterinary Serivces
8607 Wurzbach Road
San Antonio, TX 78240
Locke Hill Feed
4927 Golden Quail
San Antonio, TX 78240
Pet Supplies “Plus”
15034 San Pedro Ave.
Brook Hollow Shopping Center
San Antonio, TX 78232
6446 N. New Braunfels Ave.
San Antonio, TX 78209
The Wrinkle Dog Boutique/Cane Bella Day Spa
2267 NW Military Hwy
San Antonio, TX 78213
I’m sure many other places carry it or would order it for you…my local Ace Hardware orders California Naturals for me (it’s made by the same company)
I choose Innova Senior and got it from one of the merchants from your list. Thanks for the info.

I would certainly recommend doing a search at Dr. Karen Becker’s Healthy Pets website for articles on the subject.

Here’s a great site to research dog food Dog Food Advisor they offer unbiased evaluations of many different brands, One of the things I like best is that they show you the “true” protein, carb, fat, etc. in the food, not just what it ways on the bag/can. Whole Dog Journal is another good source. I happen to feed Instinct kibble, Instinct Raw Boost kibble, and Earthborn Holistic. I happen to have dogs that can’t all eat the same food. Best of luck to you! Back to top of the page …
