Bellies aren't just for rubbing. They're for absorbing nutrients, too. So we've upped the levels of nutrients and optimized the fiber we pack into every kibble. That special blend of fiber can help maintain a healthy digestive tract, which helps your dog get the nutrition he needs to fuel all the amazing things his body does. And, with the right balance of fiber and nutrition, your dog will probably leave you less messy poop to scoop. Explore our dry recipes

I eat a lot of fiber, but does my dog need fiber, too?

Dogs, like humans, can benefit from a diet with appropriate amounts of dietary fiber. Fiber helps with regularity and helps keep the digestive tract healthy. A healthy digestive tract will ensure your dog utilizes more of the nutrients in his food. A high-fiber diet can also help with weight management. That's because the fiber tends to make dogs feel fuller, so they are more satisfied when they've finished eating a meal, instead of feeling hungry. And thanks to fiber, your dog could have stools that are more solid—which makes them easier to clean up.

Why does my dog scoot his rear on the carpet?

That strange-looking behavior is an indication of anal sac disease. With that condition, the dog's anal sacs become impacted and filled with secretion, which is uncomfortable for your dog. He scoots his rear on the carpet in an attempt to unclog the sacs. If this is a persistent problem, consult your vet. A diet that's high in insoluble fiber may also help.

Now that my dog is senior and slowing down, does he still need protein?

Yes. Your older dog may not be as active as he once was, but that doesn't mean protein should be excluded from his diet. It is important for senior dogs to receive an appropriate amount of highly digestible protein to help maintain their muscles, immune system, and other bodily functions to support a long, healthy life. Some signs of protein deficiency include loss of appetite, weight loss, dull coat, lower immunity to disease, and fluid retention.
