Does anyone feed this food after the “use within 24 hours” storage instructions. This makes it really expensive as I will be throwing food out and will have to find an alternative

I tried ringing barking heads to ask what the unsoecified gelling agent is but could not get through to them .!!

All the phone numbers on the package of dry food are wrong! The email address said invalid when I tried to send an email and the chat option ignored my query of how many calories in 100 grams of Golden Years dried food are there. It would only allow the question of how many cups to feed!

I eventually found a number that worked after some Googling only to be told three times that there was no one to answer the phone!

I have found an alternative way to email and sent an email but I find the whole experience unsatisfactory and it doesn't give me much faith in the product! Because of the imprecision, ( the actual quantities of ingredients are woolly - oats and chicken listed together as 5%!) of disclosure of calorie content and wrong telephone numbers etc. I will give this product a miss - I thought it was going to be good!!

Hi I was checking the ingredients on this dog food and note that the Gelling Agent is Unspecified! Manufacturers should specify what the agent is so customers can chose whether or not to buy the good !!

Sorry posted before finishing post. I want to know how many calories there are in one pouch of adult BH wet food because I am transitioning to Butternut Box. My 18 month old cocker is currently on 3 BH pouches per day but the recommended daily amount for BB is one pouch (430 calories). I am thinking he might miss eating the volume he is used to but don't want to overload him with calories! Can't find calories on the BH pouches though. Can anyone help? Is there a way to work it out?

Hi i visited my supermarket and noticed that there are more flavours for adult dogs and smaller pouches for small adult starting at 1kg. Why is there only 1 flavour for puppys when they also need different flavours and why are they not in smaller 150g pouches and why start at 5kg my pup is 3kg. He is a fussy eater and its taken me weeks to find the right food. Hes started backing off from this now which i understand if i was eating the same flavour 3x a day every day. Is there no way a variety of flavours in 150g pouch can be done for puppies. I was so tempted to get the small adult 150g just for a change of flavour but i know its not right for his tummy. This really DISAPOINTS me to see him walk away from his food after a few mouthfulls. Hes tried all other makes if food but likes this texture. And these days theres not alot of choice for puppys like there is for cats n kittens

Our Cavapoo had allergy/ear issues so the vet said switch to Grain free, fish based so we started giving Eden fish cuisine however the scratching has continued. Been suggested that it could be the high vegetable content (sugars). Is there anything fish based/grain free with no veg? Thanks

I am currently feeding my dog Orijen original which she loves but seems to be getting bored, I added wet food and she’s enjoying her meals again. My question is can I feed this alongside Orijen original or will she be receiving too much of a high daily intake of vitamins etc? Thanks

Hi Abbey and thanks for posting. Yes, you certainly can feed the two foods side-by-side, just take care to get the overall amount right. We have a guide on the subject here: https://www.allaboutdogfood.co.uk/dog-feeding-guide#general_mixing

My 2.5 kg dog eats 120 g of Barking Heads wet food per day, so the 'price per day' on this is way off. It costs me about 80p per day.

Hi C D and thanks for posting. I've just double checked our figures against BH's recommendations and they are correct. According to BH a dog weighing 5kg (the smallest dog size on their guide) should get 450g (1.5 pouches) per day so we estimate a 2.5kg dog should be getting around 410g per day. At around £1.80 per pouch that comes to £2.46 per day. It's great if your dog eats less but we have to go with their recommendations.

Because the packaging says use within 24 hours I will be throwing food out. Do you keep it longer and is it okay?

I have recently contacted Barking Heads and two separate people there have confirmed that Barking Heads wet foods still contain NO thickeners or gelling agents.

There is obviously an "unspecified gelling agent" Customers have a right to know what it is !!!!
