veterans with dogs
We're very proud to be teaming up with Devon-based charity Veterans With Dogs to offer our natural Forthglade range at a discounted price to help support the overall health & wellbeing of their four-legged companions..
Veterans With Dogs is dedicated to providing highly trained dogs to both current and former members of the British Armed Forces, who are suffering from service-related mental health conditions.
Founded by Craig MacLellan, Veterans With Dogs is the UK’s only charity of its kind. MacLellan himself suffered the devastating effects of mental health issues for many years following his time in the Forces but found huge support from his own assistance dog.
“These well-trained dogs play a pivotal role in building up an individual’s self-esteem and self-worth, which is vital for veterans hoping to re-integrate back into society. Not only are they trained with specific skills for veterans, but hey also have the skills to recognise early symptoms of anxiety, emotional distress & panic attacks. We’re thrilled with this support from Forthglade as it’s great knowing our dogs can benefit from such a natural and nutritious diet”
