Suitable for: All healthy large breed adult dogs as a complete and balanced diet.
Main Ingredient: The main ingredient is cereals, of which 59% are wholegrain - much healthier.

Protein Amount: This diet is 23% protein; enough for adult large breed dogs as long as it can be digested well.
Product Aim: To maintain the health of large breed adult dogs.
Allergy Benefits: None listed but there is natural prebiotic in the diet to help with digestion.
Is it a natural product? Unknown; the ingredient sources aren't clear.
Does it include any additives? Yes, to benefit the dog's health, like vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Wind, bad breath, fur & teeth benefits? A healthy coat and skin is aided by added oils and fats. Prebiotics and fibre (3%) in the diet help limit wind. Dry food helps ‘clean' the teeth and avoid bad breath.
Can I only feed this one product? Yes, it is a complete food so there is no need to feed other food with it - just give fresh clean water in a bowl too.

BETA Adult Large Breed with Turkey Dry Dog Food is a complete balanced diet for adult large breed dogs, made with 23% protein. This diet includes added natural prebiotic to aid the digestive system. The main ingredient is cereal, where 20% are wholegrain - healthier than processed cereal. The next largest ingredient is 'meat and animal derivatives' - animal derivatives are not a great protein source as the protein in them cannot be digested as well when compared to pure meat cuts, but there is some 'full meat' in there too. Overall, the diet is complete and balanced, just not from as well sourced ingredients in comparison to other diets.
How does it keep my dog fit and healthy?
- Maintenance - The diet is complete which means it contains what your pet needs to maintain it's health.
- Digestion - Contains chicory, a natural prebiotic, to help improve digestive health.
- Immunity - Added E and C vitamins help promote natural defences.
And, how do I feed it to my dog?
You can just give the food straight to your dog as it is! Always follow the feeding guideline on the bag to know how much to feed.

Does your dog have a dull or rough coat?
