Bil-Jac® Senior Select Formula Senior Dog Food

-If you read our review above on the ULTRA, you might think to yourself why did we list a second option. The Bil-Jac is another great option, it covers all of the major keys and provides a nutrient dense option for your pup. It is an industry best seller for senior dogs so if your dog does not like the taste of ULTRA then Bil-Jac should be your plan B!
