I message forthglade and they told me there dog wet food does contain carrageenan

Tracey Dooley Buddy 9 days ago

When did they confirm their food does contain carrageenan, please? (They confirmed to me some years ago now that they did, but it seems from the message below that they removed that as an ingredient some time ago. I wonder if they know what they are talking about, or whether it's a question of porkie pies from them!)

Forthglade for my question about carrageenan :”We’re very pleased to say that whilst we have used carrageenan to help bind our ingredients in the past, due to customer feedback we removed this from our wet meals some time ago.

We do still use seaweed in our meals, to help make our meals into a firm consistency which you can cut into chunks, however the seaweed blends we use consist of Rhodophyceae seaweed which is just carefully washed and dried with no chemicals or other extraction processes. This means there is no carrageenan in there whatsoever and whilst carrageenan is completely safe to use in both pet and human food, we wanted to make sure that our customers were 100% happy with our recipes.”

Not sure when this was reviewed but I agree it's a good dog food but I have found that it has now become rather soft. Not much to get them chewing

This dog food is of excellent quality providing a good variety of flavours. All my 4 dogs love it and cant wait to have the next meal . Highly recommend this if your dog has a sensitive stomach.

I don't understand why this food scores so high, I switched to this from Nature Diet gradually, but from the very first bowl my 3 dogs started to poo a lot more often, which was very dry and powdery like, it left white powder stains on the path, then a week later they were sick. I went right back to Nature Diet and the problem was instantly gone.I tried several different packs of this over time, different flavours, ones with rice, ones without, they all had the same effect on my dogs.
On other forums people were having the exact same problem as me, also saying this food is mostly animal derivatives, is there deception here or what is wrong with this food?

The lamb, beef & duck varieties of Forthglade Natural range contain chicken. They should not be appearing in the "Ingredients to Avoid" list when filtering out Chicken but they still appear and could be misleading for those dogs with allergies / intolerence to chicken.

Could you let me know how why you believe that the other website has got the ingredients so wrong , surely if the other website has got the ingredients quite so wrong then it would give a complete false interpretation of a possible decent food.Especially as this website (all about dog food.co.uk) gives a direct link to it so that it can be directly purchased there.

Hi Julie. I have double checked and the ingredients listed above are correct according to Forthglade. Those published on the Petshop.co.uk website are incorrect - I have informed them and they will make the correction asap. Many thanks for letting me know.

Julie, it's always best to check ingredients on the manufacturers website. Sometimes retailers make mistakes.

Meat and animal derivatives (Min 60% chicken, min 10% rice),
derivatives of vegetable origin, seaweed extract, herbs, minerals, vitamins,
Please can you tell why this food scores so high?
This was in the Product Description on another Website.. the Approved online Stockist, so when i put these ingredients in your Generator it gives a score of 2.9 yet yourselves score it 4.7 and i wondered why?

Julie, I would say that the other website has the ingredients wrong.

Could I feed a 7 month old puppy this ?

Sign in to reply
Miss Cellany KTJH 5 years ago

Yes but if it's a large breed it's better to get food formulated specifically for large breeds. This is because large breed puppy food has lower calcium levels per 1000 calories which slows the pup's growth and prevents joint / bone deformities that can occur with rapid growth.With a small or medium breed this isn't really an issue as they don't have rapid growth phases and adult food can be used without problems normally.

This certainly has my boys seal of approval! He wolfs his food down with great enthusiasm. He has a beautifully shiney coat and produces easy to scoop poops!

Excellent wet food. When I bought the Forthglade I phoned a local pet store. The chap I spoke to, basically 'trashed Forthglade big time' in every way and recommended a different product which I knew was inferior in lots of ways.I can provide details to Forthglade Foods Ltd. Wainrights has a slight edge ( for my 2 dogs ) over Forthglade. Wainrights is also slightly cheaper for me to buy online from Pets at Home. None the less EXCELLENT food. Please see my review of Nutrivet Dry Complete.

I have had my fussy collie on forthglade chicken & liver ,with burns and harringtons kibble and at last he eats !!! Yey . His coat,weight,poo!! And General well being has changed 100% for the better. The cost evens out as he only needs small amounts of the high quality foods.I think it's a 5 star food .
