feeding advice

Our feeding advice is here to help you, but no one knows your four-legged friend better than you do - so you should tailor the amount you feed based on your dogs' individual lifestyle.

As a general rule, if your dog is very active you may want to consider feeding more and likewise if your pup isn't very active you may want to consider feeding less.

If you're using Forthglade for the first time, as with all new foods it's important that you gradually introduce it over a period of around 5 days to avoid any unnecessary tummy upset.

As always, please make sure your canine companion always has access to fresh drinking water.

Your puppy needs more food in it's younger months to support its growth & development, so as it reaches 6 months the amount you feed should reduce slightly and this is reflected in our feeding advice above.

Just 90% complementary wet food (2 months+)

Our Just 90% range is designed to help you tailor mealtimes and can be used alongside a good quality mixer, as a treat or alongside your own choice of healthy vegetables to create a balanced meal.

The amount you should feed will depend on how you choose to use our Just range because the calorie content of what you choose to add will vary. Our feeding advice below gives you a rough idea on how much to use, but you, of course, know your dog better than we do - so keep an eye on their weight and adjust the quantities as needed.
