Thank you. Very interesting feedback. It's certainly expensive, but if my fussy Toy Poodle enjoys it, then it's worth it.

I notice the Naturavetal seems to have dropped it's ratings into the following the updated algorithms applied!

I've stopped feeding it now - I contacted Rockster again, as I wasn't entirely convinced I'd been given the correct info when Iwas assured that the nutritional additives were not synthetic. Turns out I was correct and they are indeed synthetic - I really think the loophole which allows brands to legally say there are no chemicals or that the food is natural when synthetic vitamins and minerals are included needs to be removed. In addition, Rockster did give my cockapoo the runs, despite gradual transition to it. So, even though I'm sorry they've stopped their organic version, I'm back to Naturavetal's complete meals (tinned) which have much better quality ingredients than their cold pressed, which I'm not very impressed by. I didn't know Naturavetal was listed here, but their wet food doesn't seem to be.

I've just had a delivery of a selection of flavours and put some of the beef variety and her usual brand separately in her dish. She gobbled them both up, but didn't show a preference for either. I've read everything I can find about Rocksters and, whilst the ingredients in her current wet food (Naturavetal) are very similar, with the same level of transparency and equally as good, they are not bio organic, and I do worry about glyphosate, growth hormones, etc. This is the only reason I bought Rocksters, but it is a big plus in my view. The low cooking temperature and the fact that everything is cooked only once and in the tin also impressed me. I contacted them because, by the way the nutritional additives are listed, it looks as if the vitamins and minerals are synthetic, but I was assured that they are natural. The deer and rabbit versions are killed with lead shot, so I'll stick to the other varieties. I will alternate it with Naturavetal, as Rocksters is double the price. It seems to me that all the best dog food is German and, whilst Rocksters is very expensive, you can't really expect something of that quality to be anything else.
