A complete diet to help support maintenance and weight control in all healthy senior dogs (aged 7+), but unfortunately does not contain the best recipe as it includes cereals as the main ingredient, along with unnamed sources of meat and animal derivatives as the main meat ingredient, preservatives and colourants. Although, the diet is still popular with our customers because it is very cheap and easy to feed to your pet.

PetShop.co.uk’s Full View
Wagg Senior Complete Dry Dog Food is a complete diet for healthy adult dogs of all breeds, which contains 20% protein. It is made to support joint care in senior dogs by added glucosamine, chondroitin and fish oil. Also supports your aging pet's immune system by added antioxidant vitamins A, E & C and citrus extracts. The main ingredient is cereals - not very digestible for dogs - diets with a meat main ingredient are much healthier. The next biggest ingredient is 'meat and animal derivatives' which means various meats and animal body parts - not the best meat source. The diet contains no artificial colourants or flavours, but does include preservatives. Overall, the diet is complete so has everything your senior dog needs, but some ingredients may not be digestible enough and the diet does not have a recipe as good as other brands.
