I am being compensated for helping spread the word about the new Hill’s® Science Diet® Youthful Vitality pet food for cats and dogs over the age of 7, but The Staten Island Family only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Inc. is not responsible for the content of this article.
If you’re like me and your dog is not just a “dog” but a member of your family unit- okay he’s not quite a kid- but you swear sometimes when he looks at you-it’s like he can read your mind -and you want to lavish him with toys and healthy foods well then you are reading the PERFECT POST! I’m all about spoiling my two rescue Shih Tzus Lazer and Ike who are both my ever faithful companions- nuzzling at my toes as I sit here and type this. In a word– they are my little buddies and the best part is they never say NO … to anything.
The truth is our entire family takes pride in providing both of our furbabies with a safe environment. Just like I get my two legged kids – regular health checkups, and good nutritious food- the same holds true for my dogs. In fact I am always looking for foods that will aid all my children (fur and furless) to achieve their full potential and live long and healthy lives. Which is why I was incredibly intrigued to learn that scientists at Hill’s have been studying aging in pets for more than a decade and discovered that nutrition can positively impact a dog’s cognitive health -and used those findings in their formula for dogs.
The bottom line is–when you nourish your dog’s mind, you’re helping him live up to his full potential. That’s why Hill’s® Science Diet® Youthful Vitality formulas have been created to support health in adult dogs.And thanks to cutting edge food Science at Hill’s, they’ve been studying how nutrition impacts pets’ cell function for over a decade anf they learned the aging process is complex, slowing pets down both mentally and physically. As such, an aging pet’s nutritional needs change as well and through their research they were able to identify ingredients that can change gene activity.
And just like with people, age sometimes creeps up slowly on your pets. Age-associated changes are different in every pet and sometimes signs of aging can be dismissed or even go unnoticed because the change is gradual. Some changes are visible, like skin or haircoat, while others are less visible, like organ health.
Unfortunately these signs of aging could impact your relationship with your pet. So if you are like me with a 7 plus year old furkid and you want to keep him as happy and healthy as possible the GREAT news is that nutrition can play a part in fighting the effects of aging. In fact you can keep your 7+ pet in the game with NEW Hill’s® Science Diet® Youthful Vitality. Nearly half of pet parents don’t feed their 7+ pets food appropriate for an aging pet.* Has your furry friend started to display some age-related changes? If you’ve noticed any of these signs, it might be time to change your pet’s food or talk to your vet.
And to help those of us with senior furbabies keep them as youthful as possible last year, Hill’s® Science Diet® Youthful Vitality introduced its breakthrough innovation, Adult 7+, which contains enhanced botanical oils shown to promote alertness and mental sharpness in dogs seven and older with visible results within 30 days. And this spring they introduced Adult formulas that feature a proprietary blend of brain-supporting nutrients that support cognitive health in adult dogs.
Hill’s® Science Diet® Youthful Vitality was formulated with the healthiest ingredients to help support:
Brain Function– it includes powerful antioxidants for a healthy brain to support desire for family interaction.
Energy and Vitality–it features protein and L-carnitine support improved ability to run and play.
Healthy Kidneys & Bladder– it contains controlled minerals to help maintain healthy kidneys and bladder system.
Healthy Digestive System– it features high quality, easy-to-digest ingredients with great taste.
Luxurious Fur– it is enriched with fatty acids to promote good grooming habits for less matting and increased softness.
With formulas which feature a proprietary blend of brain-supporting nutrients that support cognitive health in adult dogs I honestly can’t think of a better reason to feed my furbabies Hill’s® Science Diet® Youthful Vitality .

The nice part is that Hill’s® Science Diet® Youthful Vitality is also available in Chicken Recipe for dry in both Original and Small & Toy Breed varieties, and a tasty Chicken stew in both large and small can sizes.
I have been feeding Lazer the Youthful Vitality formula dry food and he literally begs for it! I have also noticed that he seems to have more energy and is sleeping a bit less and is also engaging in more playtime with his younger brother Ike!
