Forthglade
« on: Jul 24, 2015, 14:53 »
Hi, Just recently purchased forthglade lifestage grain free with duck. It contains salmon oil, BUT I can't seem to find out how much salmon oil it contains, I already supplement salmon oil with my dogs food and of course need to know whether or not I need to stop supplementing the salmon oil, incase the food already contains enough.

Would appreciate any replies, Thank you.

You would probably need to ask the manufacturer directly.

It's less than 2% as it's listed after peas (2%)... but then there are only 7 ingredients listed after the Peas, making at most 14% and with the ingredients up to peas making 78% there appears to be over 8% unaccounted for???

I have emailed them, no reply yet!

Wouldn't the other 8% be;Salmon Oil, Seaweed, Minerals, Vitamins, Yucca Extract, Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Parsley, Garlic, Rosemary?

I may as well just carrying on supplementing it, no harm can come of it im guessing?

Thanks for your reply!

"When it comes to fish oil, more is not better. In fact, too much fish oil and omega-3 can lead to a vitamin E deficiency. Some fish oils will contain vitamin E to compensate for this, but as we learned from the studies on beta carotene, vitamin A and alpha-tocopherol, synthetic vitamins don’t always act predictably in the body, especially when given over long periods of time."

If the diet is truly balanced then there is no need to supplement at all, as everything needed should be in the food... Unfortunately you are left to judge for yourself if that is the case or not

That is very true, I will have to see how he goes and see if the salmon oil supplementation is needed. He only has a small amount of it anyway. I did used to have him on dry food but he just doesn't like dry food and the small amount that is fed. I know its a smaller amount because its more quality. Will just have to wait for eden to release a wet food, I would 100% purchase that!

Thanks for your replies and helpful information.

Eden wet is on its way, hopefully in the next 6 months, so do keep an eye open for that :)

Have you thought about just adding sardines or mackerel to the diet a few times a week?  Choose the ones in sunflower oil, not brine.

A good idea for those wishing to give their dog something a bit festive. I agree that you can end up giving stuff which is too rich if they get left overs. i am stingy with mine and it is just plain veg and meat. Maybe a small amount of boiled potato if she is lucky. No gravy, stuffing or roasties.

I am not surprised - the company seems to be growing very fast, especially as some of their products are now in supermarkets.
