PetShop.co.uk’s Full View
BETA Adult Sensitive Salmon and Rice Dry Dog Food is a complete and balanced diet for sensitive adult dogs, made with 24% protein. It is put together to aid sensitives by adding omega 3 and 6 and also by including extra vitamin E and C to boost the immune system. The diet also supports a healthy digestive system by added natural prebiotic. The main ingredient is cereal, of which are 20% wholegrain and 4% rice which are 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.

- Maintenance - The diet is complete which means it contains what your pet needs to maintain it's health.
