James Wellbeloved Senior Dry Dog Food - Lamb & Rice
James Wellbeloved Senior Dog Lamb & Rice is a complete, hypoallergenic food for dogs over seven years. As a hypoallergenic dog food, it is an ideal way to maintain your dog’s nutrition as they mature without aggravating their allergies.
How it works
This product is made hypoallergenic by using selected sources of meat proteins and carbohydrates from rice and barley. Because your dog’s immune system weakens as they mature, the skin conditions (like dermatitis) that tend to come with allergies risk causing your dog extra harm by reducing their ability to withstand infection. Targeting their allergy with a hypoallergenic feed is an excellent way to avoid further illness.
The food is also a reliable source of general nutrition. Enriched with omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, it helps to promote excellent heart health in mature dogs, whilst keeping their coat glossy and healthy looking.
This food is enriched by natural chicory inulin, a prebiotic, which helps your dog to break down food as it digests. This is particularly helpful for mature dogs, whose digestive systems often slow down with age and require some gentle assistance to process food.
- specially selected sources of proteins and carbohydrates to exclude most allergens
- the omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids help keep the heart healthy and maintain a glossy coat
- enriched with probiotics to help your dog break down food as it digests
How to use
If you or your vet suspect your dog of having a food allergy, it is recommended that you trial James Wellbeloved Senior Dog Lamb & Rice as their regular meal for a period of 3 to 8 weeks. If your pet’s symptoms disappear, you can continue feeding indefinitely.
As your dog matures, it may be worth considering nutritional supplements that assist them in keeping their mind fit and healthy. Talk to your vet about combining James Wellbeloved Senior Dog Lamb and Rice with Aktivait Capsules for Medium and Large Dogs. These capsules supplement your dog's regular diet and nourish your dog's brain as they mature, keeping it sharp and alert.

Feeding The Correct Amount
It is important to remember however that these figures are guidelines only, and there are several factors to be taken into account when assessing your pet’s nutritional requirements : -
- Activity level
- Temperament (stressed animals burn off more calories than relaxed ones)
- Metabolism (every animal is an individual with his or her own speed of metabolism; this means that 2 dogs of the same age, breed and weight could have different daily calorie requirements)
In order to provide the correct portions when feeding your dog or cat, it is also helpful to assess your pet’s appetite, visual appearance and stools. Whilst poo watching does not sound particularly pleasant, it is one of the best indicators of health. Increased frequency of passing faeces, production of large quantities of stools of loose motions are often frequent signs that an animal is receiving more food than he or she requires.
It is important to obtain an accurate weight for your cat or dog, and also to weigh out the food. Guessing on both accounts gives a large margin of error.
Changing Food Brands
For a successful diet change, we recommend following the feeding pattern below. The daily feeding amount should be split into two equal amounts and the proportions of new food increased over the first week as illustrated.
TOP TIPS: For those dogs who do not make eating a priority, here are some additional points:
- Reduce the number of tit-bits given during the introductory period
- If your dog has been used to eating wet food, moisten with warm water.

BrilliantMax has haf samedog foid since he was a pup and is now on Senior as he is 11.5 years old. Cannot recommend James Wellbeloved highly enough.
Always use thisProduct is great and of high quality. My dog has always eaten it.
Great for all dogsI have bean buying James Welbeloved for a number of years for my Westie who is now 16 years old
Great for seniorsOur Labrador/retriever cross is now 11 years old and slowing down, but this food is really keeping him in excellent condition. His weight is good and stable, his coat is glossy and his digestive system is great. It even contains glucosamine for elderly joints (although we have also put him on an extra joint supplement as he gets a bit stiff after snoozing so much!) I would highly recommend.
