Beta PURINA Adult Active Dry Dog Food : Great dry dog food.

Not keen on the ingredients list but the dog eats it just fine. I have used several of betas products and have been very happy, the dog likes to eat it ,its a fair price and comes in large sizes all good when your dog is the size of a small horse and eats like one, this one is no different ,goes down well with no digestive issues. As an owner though i dont think i would purchase a food where the first ingredient is cereal and it only has meat and animal derivatives (8%*). It doesnt sound good but may be active dogs need more carbs for energy ????.

Jack russell loves this stuff. Usually last about 3 months. Can’t find it cheaper elsewhere either. The peices are quite big, but it means he has to crunch and chew it which is good for his teeth according to the vet. Is making his jaw stong to which isn’t good for my fingers.

Love this food for my bulldog who is now a. Love this food for my bulldog who is now a junior. It suits her where others just go through his system. Its a good size kibble for a large dog. When i feed it i add raw minced chicken or raw lamb mince. Ive bought this food loads of times and left many reviews on it as well. You can see my dog is a big fan. If you want a food of good value then i suggest you go for this with added meat. Here are the specifications for the Beta PURINA Adult Active Dry Dog Food:

  • Contains high protein and fat levels to help your active companion replenish his energy stores, also suitable for working or hunting dogs
  • With essential amino acids for strong muscles and to support muscle repair
  • High levels of antioxidants to help your active companion deal with external challenges during strenuous activity sessions, helping him maintain good condition
  • With dual sized kibble to encourage chewing, helping to maintain oral health

Excellent product, excellent packaging and delivery times, will continue to buy.

Our dog (labrador) maybe getting a bit old for this food which is designed for very active dogs and she is getting less active over time however she enjoys it and so far no sign of her getting the runs which sometimes happens if she has a food that does not agree with her. Good sized pieces and the ingredients seem to be okay when i looked at the packaging. So in short works well the only reason for a dropped star is that i have found dog food for less money with similar or better ingredients but that is nit picking. Good sensible dog food buy if you don’t want to buy some of the rubbish available at supermarkets etc.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Good for active dogs
  • Oh it’s hard matron.
  • Great dry dog food.

Money well spent the dogs love it and it keeps their coat and teeth in great condition.

    This is a dry food suitable for adult dogs, aged one and it comes in a very weighty 14kg bag – best taken out of the shipping box on the doorstep as it is easier to carry. The headline ingredient is chicken, although this only accounts for around 4% of the 27% protein content. The significant proportion of the protein is derived from meat and animal derivatives, in other words a mix of origins and thus it may not be suitable to feed to your dog if it, or any other animals that have access to the food, have food intolerances. The mixture of biscuit sizes adds to interest and there is no waste. A feeding guide is included on the bag.

    My chocolate lab loves this. . Im very lucky my chocolate lab will eat everything i put in front of her. I had not problems with an upset stomach when i changed on to this food. I really like the 2 size of the kibble. There is big bits the size of a pound coin and smaller a round the size of a 5p. With the big bits it slows her down eating it. It also helps to keep her teeth clean. I also use the larger kibble in her treat ball as it takes her ages to get the kibble out. The food has no added colour which i really like as i know she is not getting any extra or need. I always add some hot water and leave it for a min to make a gravy then cool it down with hot water.

    We used to use beta for both our dogs, a terrier bitch and a collie/terrier cross, and they were both healthy and active and seemed to enjoy it, although after a year or so the terrier, which can be quite a fussy eater, seemed to get bored of it and so we tried something different. They have had a good break from this now and having spent a week gradually changing them back to it they seem more than happy to dig in again. Both dogs are quite active; they’re walked for between 1 – 2 hours every day through fields during which the collie/terrier cross spends his time chasing balls and sticks, we also play with them a couple of times a day too, and that’s when the terrier gets lots more exercise playing tug of war. It’s obviously too soon to tell what the long term results will be with this food, but i’m happy with the ingredients and interested to see whether claims regarding digestion are true as our collie cross has a sensitive stomach and not all foods agree with him. So far, so good, but i will see how they dogs are over a longer period and update this review in about a month.

    Easy to use, you just open the packet, no preparation or complicated serving instructions here. My previous food required such complex preparation i’m surprised they didn’t go next door to get fed. Our dogs were a bit sniffy at first, but when i added some steak and gravy, they wolfed it all down.So go one, don’t skimp on the doggies in your life, give them the best.

    Firstly let me say that you certainly get value for money with this dog food, as the bag is huge. I’ve noticed since eating the beta food that my dogs coats have looked shiner and felt softer. They need no encouragement when it comes to eating the food either and it certainly seems to agree with them.

      Trig is an active dog and is out for several long walks with the family and spends time in the garden and fields around the back of the house. He’s currently had a number of foods from both the purina and purina beta range and appears to tolerate them all pretty well. This is no different and is back to chicken, which the majority of the purina ranges appear to be – although this is beginning to change, turkey and lamb becoming part of te range. Everything an active dog needs to maintain their health and vitality is contained within this kibble/biscuit. With the purina ranges we don’t generally have to titrate new food against previous, in fact in trig’s case he generally has a number of different kibble/biscuit/wet food on the go at any one time so is used to change; generally if it doesn’t cause digestive problems (vomiting or diarrhea) we just add it into the rotation and he doesn’t seem to mind. No waste and appears well tolerated. As with all dry kibble/biscuit you need to keep a good supply of water close at hand and if you have dogs with missing teeth this will soak to soften it up so it can be fed to them, for those with a full set it the variation in kibble/biscuit size will help maintain good oral health.
