Suitable for: All healthy senior dogs as a complete balanced diet to support their health.
Main Ingredient: The main ingredient is cereals, of which 57% are wholegrain - much healthier.

Protein Amount: This diet is 25% protein; enough for senior dogs as long as it can be digested well.
Product Aim: To maintain the health in senior dogs.
Allergy Benefits: None listed but there is natural prebiotic in the diet to help with digestive upsets.
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 and minerals.
Wind, bad breath, fur & teeth benefits? A healthy coat and skin is aided by added oils and fats. Prebiotics and fibre 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.
PetShop.co.uk’s Full View
BETA Senior Dry Dog Food is a complete and balanced diet for senior dogs, made with 25% protein. It is put together to also support a healthly digestive system by added natural prebiotic. The main ingredient is cereal, of which are 57% wholegrain which is much healthier than processed grain. The next biggest ingredient is meat and animal derivatives - animal derivatives are not the best source of protein as the protein in them is not as digestible as pure meat cuts, but there is 'full meat' in there too. All in all, the diet is complete and balanced, just not from as well sourced ingredients when compared to other brands.
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.
