DRBC Diet and Nutritional Approach
Nationally, the average lifespan for the dachshund breed is 12- 14 years. Our nutritional program has allowed DRBC to increase that average to 16 - 18 years. The best news is that this number is trending upwards with 12 of our doxies having past the age of 20 yrs.
The difference? Our diet. Aimed at long life, it represents a proactive approach to sound health by targeting major organ systems including heart, kidneys and spine. DRBC is pleased to be partnered with the University of Pennsylvania and Royal Canin in our efforts.
Special Diets for Seniors
Many senior diets are customized, but completely supported by DRBC. Increased Glycosamine additives help battle arthritis while cardiac supplements support heart function. There are many other items that go in our custom diets, but long life and good health are at the core of the support provided to our senior members.
