One day we turned around and Kona’s hair turned grey. It seems like she’s always just been a part of our family. We adopted her as a puppy when the boys were 7 and 5 and they are now 17 and 16! We realized that Kona is definitely considered a senior as a larger breed (she’s an American Pitbull Terrier) and was starting to show small signs of getting older. We want the best quality of life for our dogs so we started researching a food that was better tailored to her newer stage in life. I came across Tailored® personalized pet food and after taking their quiz knew I wanted to try it for Kona!
Things We Changed As Our Dog Became a Senior
Before Kona we had Jade an American Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Their breeds are so stubborn that they don’t like to let you know when they’re sore or tired so her senior years definitely snuck up on us. With Kona we knew that along with her grey hairs (you can only see them on the spots with her black fur) would come some signs of aging.
As she got older her energy didn’t change much but I am starting to notice her hearing ever so slightly change, hesitance before jumping up on things, and being stiff in the mornings. I knew I could adjust and add in some more supplements but I also realized it was probably time to look at changing her food to something fit for older active dogs as well.
We also started taking her on slightly shorter walks than we do with our younger dog Chance since she was getting a little too tired nearing the end of our normal routes. Since she was going on shorter walks we decided to add in a little more playtime at home to keep her active. She’s loving the extra attention and doesn’t seem to mind that Chance goes on a longer walk than her.
By slightly changing things now, we’re hoping to keep her happy and healthy for a long time!
How to Get Pet Food Tailored for Your Dog – Tailored Pet Food Review
While looking into a new food for our little senior, I came across Tailored pet food. You take a quiz about your dog (about 3 minutes) with questions about your pup’s age, size, breed, sensitivities and wellness goals, and you’ll get a vet-recommended kibble blend for your dog’s unique needs and exclude any sensitivities. When you order you get your specific blend, crafted in the US with fast, free delivery to your door. You can have your dog’s recipe delivered as you need it on a regular basis or as a one-time purchase. They have hassle-free subscriptions which means you can make changes or cancel any time (always a must for me when trying new subscriptions).
I took the quiz and ordered up Kona’s personalized blend. I loved that they included the right nutrition for her unique needs. Our first order arrived super fast and I couldn’t get over how cute the packaging was. I got the 40lb plan and it came in 4 10lb bags which I love so that the food can stay fresh. They also included cute little stickers, a measuring scoop, and even a poop bag holder/poop bags (we can ALWAYS use more of those).
They give instructions on how to transition your pet into their new food. They also will tweak the recipe until your dog loves it or they’ll give you your money back! We didn’t have that issue though. Kona took to it right away and loves it. She also loves the smaller kibble. I’ll check back in to let you know how she’s doing on it, but if you’re looking for a personalized pet food definitely check out Tailored!
