OPTIMUM™ Adult 7+

with Chicken, Vegetables & Rice Dry Dog Food

Dog Food Adult 7+

Just like us, as dogs age their dietary needs change. In general, dogs of seven years of age and older begin to experience change, for larger breeds these changes start to happen around 6 years of age. At this stage more senior dogs need a high quality, palatable diet that is easy to digest, along with a careful balance of other essential nutrients.

OPTIMUM Adult 7+ has been formulated with a natural source of glucosamine, higher protein and concentrated vitamin & mineral levels to help support the health and immunity of older dogs 7 years+ (6 years+ for Giant Breeds >50kg).

OPTIMUM Adult 7+  is available in Chicken, Rice and Vegetables in a 2.7kg and 13.7kg pack size.

OPTIMUM provides a nutritionally complete and balanced meal that your dog will enjoy everyday.



OPTIMUM™ Adult 7+  is specially formulated to provide excellent nutrient BIOAVAILABILITY. This means that due to OPTIMUM™ product integrity, high levels of nutrients are absorbed by your dog's body. Your dog gets more from their food, to get more out of life.


Health Benefits

Supports aging dogs

OPTIMUM™ Adult 7+ is specifically designed to support the health of your older dog. Higher protein and concentrated vitamin & mineral levels help to increase nutrient availability, helping your dog continue to live a long, happy life.

Joint Health

OPTIMUM™ Adult 7+ contains high levels of chicken, a natural source of Glucosamine. Glucosamine contains the natural building blocks for cartilage to help maintain joint health. This is particularly important for older dogs that are more prone to joint health problems.

Helps strengthen immunity

The OPTIMUM™  range contains a unique blend of antioxidants including vitamin E & C.  Scientific studies have proven that vitamin E & C help strengthen the immune system, and keep your dog healthy by helping to reduce the oxidative stress on your dog's cells.

Skin & Coat

The OPTIMUM™ range is enriched with a blend of zinc and Omega 6 (a naturally occurring oil).  Scientific studies have shown that a blend of zinc and Omega 6 delivers a healthy, shiny coat.


Dental Defence

Like humans, maintaining good oral hygiene for dogs is an important factor of good health.  The OPTIMUM™ specifically designed dental system helps to reduce plaque build up and help protect teeth and gums.  The mechanical action of chewing the crunchy dry kibble, in combination with the active ingredient (sodium tripolyphosphate) helps promote good oral hygiene.


Heart Health

The unique OPTIMUM™ dry product formulation contains Arginine and Vitamin E. Scientific studies have shown that Arginine and Vitamin E helps to maintain healthy blood circulation.


Healthy Digestion

HEALTHY DIGESTION The inclusion of wholegrains and beet pulp in OPTIMUM™ provides a natural source of fibre. This helps to control intestinal transit and maximise nutrient absorption, resulting in smaller, firmer stools.



From quality ingredients, OPTIMUM™ Light & Healthy contains no added artificial colours or flavours.  Made with real meat the OPTIMUM™ product range provides a nutritionally complete and balanced meal that your dog will enjoy every day
