Manufacturer's product description

" Montys Larder is our new range of food for dogs prepared by our own chefs using the same grass-fed, outdoor-reared met sourced from The Dorset Meat Company's group of family-run farms that follow traditional, high-welfare farming practices, produced sustainably and in harmony with nature.

We believe strongly that small-scale farming is better for the local ecology, and therefore your dog. Cooked meals that are full of grass-fed meat from animals that themselves have only eaten a natural diet of grass, wildflowers and clovers rich in essential vitamins and minerals and high in Omega-3, untainted by growth promoters and chemicals, makes a whole lot of sense.

My dog has been on this food for the past few months and pretty much from the beginning was just problem after problem. At first it was a problem with their payments. They were taking two separate payments from me for two months in the row. Yes I got the refund but the fact they were so disorganised and the fact I had to wait few days for a refund of the food I didn’t even order was very upsetting. Once that was sorted and they stopped charging my card twice there was another problem. No fish in the stock therefore my dog received only lamb and beef. They don’t have many selection of meat. It’s pretty much only beef, lamb and fish which is cod. Having only beef and lamb throughout the whole month has made my dog severely sick to the point I had to take him to the vet due to really bad diarrhoea. The food is very fatty, very heavy on stomach and there is not much fibre. I showed this food to my vet and he said there is definitely not enough fibre and getting the same meet to my dog all the time has caused this sickness. My dog only now recovers from all this and I cancelled my subscription. Their website is not mobile friendly and any changes in your account has to be done on the laptop. Customer service is ok if they answer the phone. Often it’s the case they don’t answer at all.

My very sensitive fur baby has been on the fish pie variety of this food and it’s amazing. She loves the taste, it doesn’t upset her chronic IBD and her skin/fur looks fab too. The company themselves are also really helpful. We’ve tried all the other fresh food brands and this is a definite winner!!

I’m a bit confused by this food, the ingredients listed above are not what’s stated on the packaging. And differs between Montys Larder website and the Dorset Meat company websites. Having a dog with chronic IBD it’s important to know exactly what’s in the food. But this makes me unsure, I was under the impression the food was all salmon but this suggests there’s more white fish than salmon….

Hi, Sorry for the confusion. We have recently updated the fish pie recipe to lower the salmon content to fit in with a low purine diet. We added cod in order to maintain the high protein and meat content. Our main website is Montyslarder.co.uk where you will find the correct ingredients, as well as on the packs (the above is also correct). The Dorset Meat Company website will be updated. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. All the best, Charlie.

Hi - thanks for the clarification, I wasn't sure which website was correct. To be fair your food is definitely one of the best we've tried, it looks and smell so fresh and she loved the taste, but at the moment nothing's agreeing with her.

Monty's Larder freshly cooked dog food is outstanding. It is exactly what it is described to be and arrives beautifully packaged and the quality and composition of all of the recipes is superb. My 4 large dogs absolutely love it and their coats, energy levels, eyes, noses and condition are superb. 4 very waggy tails at breakfast and dinner times . Less volume of waste at other end and faeces are firm and cohesive, so anal sacs filling has been very much reduced, due to quality and digestibility of the meals. Worth every penny. Superb. Well done Dorset Meat Company.
