Rocco has been sold out on Zooplus for a while. I wonder if this is a supplychain problem or if we won't be able to import it to the UK any longer.... does anyone have any info?

Also, what dog food is similar to Rocco and affordable? My dog has only ever had a mix of Rocco and Skinners and we are very happy with him on it. I wondered about Naturediet Purely? Any thoughts appreciated.

Hi there, I really recommend Forthglade as a wet food. If you're looking for one with just pure meat I suggest the Forthglade 90% range, they do many proteins and is widely available. Naturediet Purely also looks good but not sure how available is it to buy, hope this helps :)

I think it's a supply chain issue. I asked their customer support if they knew when the food would be back in stock and they said they expected to get some back in but they don't know when.

The other day(21st of jan) I managed to get some of the trays of Rocco(I usually buy the tins but better than nothing) so it is coming into the country at least, just difficult to get a hold of due to both the low supply and the high demand.(Which is annoying, Rocco is literally the only food I've found that my dog will consistently eat and not just leave!)

Definitely supply chain issue into plague island, as no issues getting it on Zooplus.be

This information is out of date. Rocco does not contain carrageenan. Please update your information

It does contain carrageenan, so does tinned lukullus and tinned wolf of the wilderness , it’s not on the label. I’ve checked with the manufacturer, then sent it back to where I purchased it from

Rocco is one of the few of wet foods my mixed breed tolerates. It is a great quality food at a great price. My dogs love it! :)

This is so far the best wet dog food I have purchased. Its so thick and meaty it reminds me of corned beef. You can actually see the poultry hearts whole in it. (if you get the beef with poultry hearts one) They are not all mashed up. My springers love it and leave the biscuits now! Good price and a very good variety.
I have purchased before and will definitely purchase again.

My dog loves it, but not they have changed the formula (twice now in May) it makes him sick and has given him diarrhoea. Time to try him on something different.

3 yr old Schnoodle loves it, but gave elderly toy poodle diarrhoea - maybe too rich with the beef content? A shame, as it seems excellent quality for the price.

My dogs have been on this for a few weeks now and they love it.
I find it very meaty and solid.
So much better than some of the tinned food my dogs have had in the past which were just a few chunks of meat chucked in a lot of gravy!

We do extremely well on this food. Just moved on from the puppy version of Rocco. I tried it because of the simple and short list of ingredients without e-numbers, sugars or chemical flavouring and my dog loves it.

Thank you for providing an excellent site. I do not have a can of Rocco in front on me but can you please explain why they print 100% on their label yet your analysis states 70% beef. Is the other 30% 'beef' fat resulting in the high and possibly undesirable fat content ? To be honest I cannot see how this product can be retailed (zooplus) for £0.83/400g and contain such a high beef content. I suspect that beef derivatives which can even be bone, hair and hooves are playing a big part here. Prepared to comment?

100% claim stands for not having any meat or bone meal but just fresh meat (beef) and not having any grains or soy or other fillings.It's 70% fresh meat in stock (approx. 24%)
