Wagg Complete Senior Dry Dog Food - 15KG
*Calculation based on a medium-large sized dog (20kg) being fed 400g per day as per brand guidelines, and based on product total price £22.99 as accurate on 11/10/2013.
Description: Complete balanced diet for all senior dogs, so your dog will get all the nutrition they need just from this product, along with water of course!. The bag is 15kg and contains dry food.
Price: A low-mid range price; only 61p a day to feed a medium-large senior dog (20kg) with the bag lasting roughly 5 weeks and 3 days!
Meat Source: Contains both meat and fish (5% chicken in the red chunks), and animal and fish derivatives (proteins sourced from any part of an animal or fish).
Feeding Ease: Dry food is very easy to feed your dog; all you need is a measuring cup or something similar to feed them correctly!
Ingredients: Includes Glucosamine, Chondroitin and L-carnitine which can support mobile supple joints and aid weight control in senior dogs. Although, a large percentage of the diet is cereals (10% rice in the bone shaped pieces). Wagg don't add any artificial preservatives or antioxidants themselves, but they acknowledge that some of the ingredients they use may contain small amounts. As a plus, Wagg are very honest about what goes into their products.
Allergy Information: Contains some ingredients that cause common allergies in dogs, including fish, chicken, yeast and potentially wheat in the cereal.
Labeling: There is clear labeling on the packaging, including a distinct product name and description, along with an easily read feeding guide.
Specific Benefits: Life stage specific; supports joint health and aids weight management in less active, older dogs.
“A low cost food for the more senior of dogs. A market gap filler that most manufacturers and retailers seem to forget.”
“Excellent food; warm it for 10 seconds in the microwave and watch it disappear!”
“Have fed my 3 spaniels on it for many years now and they are 11 and 9 years old with no problems. Good quality food at a great price.”
“One of my senior dogs had started to show signs of painful joints and piling on the weight… So I thought of trying the Wagg Senior. Wow! What a difference. He's now losing weight and exercising more, enjoying life again.”
“Our senior complete dry dog food contains Glucosamine and Chrondroitin combined with added fish and fish oils to help promote mobile and supple joints in dogs of all ages. It also contains L-carnitine, which may help with weight control in older, less active dogs*. A quality complete dry senior food available at outstanding value.”

The feeding quantities are based on moderately active senior dogs at normal environmental temperatures. Individual feeding needs depend on many factors, including weight, age, size, activity and environment, and therefore feeding amounts vary and should be adjusted as required to maintain a lean, healthy body and weight.
PetShopBowl Advice: Dogs and cats are natural predators so wouldn’t be eating cold food in nature; to improve how tasty the food is for your pet try providing it at room temperature.

As this is a product for senior dogs I was disappointed to see that the size of the pieces are quite large for doggies who could have problems with their teeth. I have 3 dogs all between 12 and 15 years two of them being rescue dogs and I have looked after them for 1 and 2 years respectively the older one came with rotten teeth and is too old for treatment the other did have dentist treatment but had to have 10 teeth extracted so he definitely has problems eating this dog food so I have had to get a different one for him. Apart from that I was very pleased with the ordering and delivery service.

All my dogs have been fed on Wagg , lately on Senior Light which they always enjoy.
The price is very good and normally with free delivery from PetShopBowl. The delivery is always very quick and a great tracked courier service.
Delighted customer !

Roo is a very big Siberian Malamute, she was a rescue dog from the RSPCA, but a lesser amount of this than other complete dog food seems to satisfy her needs, It has been difficult to find something to suit her not knowing her past history, thanks for the speedy delivery and good service

My Border Collie is 8 1/2 yrs old and I have been feeding him the Wagg Senior for quite some time. He prefers to have a small tin of food mixed in with it so I give slightly less of the wagg to compensate, seems to work for him better.
First class service from PetShopBowl with fast delivery which is much appreciated since I cannot get to the pet store.
Competitive price is always a bonus too.
Thank you team.

We found it really hard to purchase a 15kg bag of Wagg Senior from normal dog food outlets. Our dog is 12 this year so really needs Senior food. We love the fact it is delivered to our door. Thank you.

I feed Wagg Senior to my old dog and my two large-breed young dogs, as I want them to keep their joints healthy. They all eat it very well and seem to enjoy it.

I've used Wagg Worker for quite some time now for my eight dogs. Five Springer's, two Rottweiler's and a Patterale. But one of my big boy's had started to show signs of painful joints and piling on the weight. A vicious circle. So I thought of trying the Wagg Senior. Wow! What a difference. He's now losing weight and exercising more. Enjoying life again. We are so happy that he is getting back to his usual self and avoiding regular trips to the vets. I can't buy this in the shops so buying from it PetShopBowl is great. Exceptional value for money and quick delivery with option of getting free delivery.
I highly recommend Wagg and PetShopBowl.

This company have offered me a service that I cannot get anywhere else. I buy Wagg Senior for my dog which I find difficult to get anywhere else at a reasonable price. I cannot go out to get the product myself so I order online. Delivery is super fast, I order on one day and then in a couple of days I have it.
Would recommend to everyone.
If you read my review please tell your friends to use this company

This review is from: Wagg Complete Senior Dry Mix 15 kg (Grocery)
My three elderly dogs have been eating the ordinary Wagg dry food for years so i thought i would give the senior one a try to help their creaking old joints and it certainly seems to have improved their overall condition and their coats are shinning.Great value for money as always and the delivery service was very quick.
