My fussy dog


Sorry but have tried for a week and a half but my fussy dog Lucy just doesn't like this senior dog food.I have tried feeding her different times of day made sure that she had lots of water but to no good,she has literally just picked at it will have to give it to my son to feed his dog so it will not be wasted

Happy dog happy me


I’ve slowly introduce my dog to the new food because he is a bit old. I can see he adjusted the food without a problem. He seems to be more energetic and more energy. I will definitely recommend this to senior dog

okay general food


Tbh I did expect to show more interest and be all over this food but she wasn't that interested in it any more than her normal cheaper food. she did eat it mostly but very hard to properly review it as was only about 3 or 4 days food only.

My Dog did Like To Start But It his Stomach didn't


My do seemed to be enjoying this food. I introduced it a little at a time mixed with their normal food 4 days but his stomach did not agree with this
Since using just this new food 4 Days my dog Just Couldn't Stop Passing Gas....

He has have nearly finished half the bag won’t continue to use this food as it hasn’t agreed with his Tummy



My do is very fussy and when she tryed the dog food she ate it at once rather than bits at a time she loved it will be buying again



My little dog Benny is a bit selective when it comes to food, so I was a bit apprehensive when I gave him some of this new food - He obviously knew it so different straight away and tentatively tried a bit, looked at me then had some more, next time I looked it was all gone and he has enjoyed it since then - I would happily buy this again for him

Very picky old girl


Because of 'stuff' that has been going on I fed my dog for the first time with the food tonight. I served it exactly the same as her other food which is with a little warm water and about a teaspoon of chicken bits mixed in. She was even interested in the smell of the bag it came in. She ate every little bit, there was nothing left in the bowl and I guess if anyone wants to introduce a new food to their dog they don't have to go through the rigmarole of introducing a little at a time. As my dog has a sensitive tummy I will be interested in seeing if she can digest this withough any problems.

Happy pooch!


I have a very fussy lhasa apso. She has always been a grazer rather than wolfing food down as soon as it's put out. However, the first time I added some of this food to her usually food to transition her over, she picked out all the BETA and left her usual food! She loves it, she eats it as soon as it's put down and she's been so active the last two weeks as she usually sleeps, a lot! Very pleased with this food and the way my dog enjoys it.

Beta® Senior Dog - Chicken


Jessie is still enjoying this product and seems to b e full of life. I will definitely be buying it in the future. I tried to upload a photo but the file was too big and I don't know how to make the photo smaller, sorry.



I would defiantly recommend this food. My dogs are mad for it. I introduced it slowly for them both to adapt but it did not take much time. They get so excited at meal times and never leave an empty bowl. The food itself is high quality looks natural. I will defiantly be adding it to my shopping list in the future.

Beta dog food for senior dogs


Oscar loves beta dog food for senior dogs being a fussy eater I was surprised how much he really enjoyed his food I normally put food down in the morning and picks though the day not this time he scoffed the lot very happy dog very happy owner

Yummy in my Labradors Tummy


My elderly lab loves the beta senior. She was wagging from the off and seemed to really enjoy the taste. The size of the kibbles ensures that she doesn’t gulp it down too quickly. The trial bag was a little on the small size to actually trial the product effectively as it only lasted a couple of days for the size of dog that I have. I have however gone out and purchased this product to keep my girl on long term.



My dog paddy is quite picky with food but really loves this i have given him this every day from when i received it ,he loves it and never leaves any ,i will be buying this in future

They seemed keen!


I have 3 medium sized dogs, aged from 6/10/12years old and so was sent the senior dog Beta biscuits.

We feed our dogs wet food 2 times a day and leave a bowl of biscuits down all day.

The day we received the biscuits, I filled a bowl with the chicken Beta biscuits and instantly, my 12 year old Westie went mad for them. However, I noticed they were a bit of an effort for her as they’re quite big compared to biscuits she usually eats (for small dogs).

My 10 yr old Yorkie loves these biscuits, choosing to throw them around the living room and then chase them by herself.

My 6 yr old mixed breed hasn’t touched them and can’t be convinced to try them.

Senior Dog Food Has My Dog As Lively As A Junior


I always wondered why there was a distinction between regular dog food and dog food for older dogs but now I can see why! Bailey is a 9 yr old Labrador/Appenzeller and in recent years he had become stiffer moving about but since eating the Senior Dog food he has lost that. He has even regained his enthusiasm and energy for chasing balls that I haven't seen since he was a puppy and can run in and out of the sea endlessly!

A Happy Doggy


My dog Missy can at times be a bit of a fuss pot so you can imagine the shock I got when no sooner had the food been put in her bowl and she was not only eating it but she ate the lot. A very happy doggy to say the least!

Ate straight away


My dog Buffy helped unpack the parcel with great interest. I gave her a couple of pieces straight away and she seemed very pleased . I noticed they were nice and crunchy but not hard, so should help keep her teeth clean. She took to it as her main food straight away despite being fussy. It's too early to see the anticipated health benefits, I'm hoping her joints may be a little less stiff in the mornings and after a good walk. For a good aged dog (13 yrs) this seems to be her only problem but I'm sure she will also benefit from the heart care and immune system help.

Amazing product


My dog has really enjoyed this food. I like to give my dog the best quality products. This dog food did not fail me. From day 1 as I slowly introduced it to him he enjoyed every bite. He has a shiny coat and even seems to have more energy.

Great packaging


I love the information on the package. It was easy to read gave a lot of great nutritional information and made it very easy to understand how my dog would benefit. My dog has always been a fussy eater with dry food and when she smelt the biscuit she was not to fussed however as soon as she ate 1 biscuit she instantly loved them. We had since brought this brand as she is now not keen to return to her old brand.



I gave this product to my greyhound cross as soon as it arrived and he loved it his bowl was cleared straight away.

Paws up from my Pooch


I've never seen a dog eat so quickly when I put this down to her for the first time. She has been eating it for a week and she seems to really enjoy it. Some dry dog foods can be too much for her little tummy but so far she has had no issues. She seems very happy and content. The kibble itself seems good quality and not powdery like some other brands. I would definitely recommend.

Quickest and happiest swap over ever


Normally with huskies as with most breeds changing food can be a hit or miss. I can say with a resounding yes that this was a hit. Have 3 seniors who can be stubborn and react techy towards different foods this Beta Senior was received brilliantly. All bowls were cleared instantly, meaning the greedy one didn't get to finish everyone else's. This nut is a good size and with the 2 different shapes made it not seem a samey food, giving a bit of variety. Even Miss Picky was happily eating the nuts out of my hand, when she'd normally sit with her bowl between her paws to eat away from others. I'd be happy to feed all the dogs on Beta. Even the cat (who thinks he's a dog) had a go and enjoyed them.

Great product


My dog has got on really well with this product and normally switching foods can disagree with her. She already seems healthier after a few days of eating the food. Though getting on a bit in years the senior food has given her a new vigour and she seems to enjoy her walks even more. The downside is that she can now jump on to my bed and found her next to me the other morning. She must be saying thank you.



I couldn’t wait to trial this on my dogs. They’ve used there usual brand of dog food for the past 5 years. But just thought I would try this as it came up on my insider to see if they liked this better? As soon as I opened the bag and the smell came out, they was both stood there licking there lips waiting for me to put it in there bowl, I filled it up. And the next minute it was Gona. So I put some down for my other dog and the same happened again, this wen in for a few days so I’m guessing they enjoyed it, the kible was the perfect size for my dogs, the smell didn’t leave a horrid smell in the house like some dog food. And it definitely didn’t upset either of my dogs tummy. If any thing there stools was a lot better than before, I would defo recommend this dog food and I will be moving my dogs on to this now the trial has finished.

Great food


I have a adult Belgium shepherd who has problems with his stomach making a lot of dry food no good for him but he has been on beta dry food for 3 days and he seems to really like it and it has really helped with his digestion this dog food has probiotics in it which I think has helped him a lot I no longer have to keep an air freshener at hand because his stomach is reacting badly to the food , I will be buying more of this food also my other dog tried some and he liked it as well so I would recommend this beta food to other dog owners who's dogs suffer with there stomachs it has also started to put a shine back into there coats which was becoming dull I know it's only been 3 days but the transformation in there appetite appears to be improving as well as there coats and stomach problems so happy I got to try this product I have now found a food my dogs actually like and enjoy and doesn't interfere with there stomachs, unlike some dry dog food that actually doesn't smell very nice this one did smell nice and I think this made it more enjoyable for my dogs .
