Love from our Ambassadogs

We've included a few tails from our beloved Ambassadogs. We asked the pack for their honest feedback of why they love our Forthglade senior food so much...

Maya is thriving on the new senior range, I have noticed an increase in her energy levels since feeding it, and it's great to know that are joints and bones are receiving the extra support they need.


Charlie absolutely loves the Forthglade senior range, he’s always been a fussy eater not really bothered about his food, but since we've fed Forthglade he can never get enough. He’s nearly 8 now, and I’ve got total peace of mind that their senior range is giving him the best nutritional support now he’s a little older.


Ella is a huge fan of the senior dog wet food range! She inhales all flavours, but she gets most excited for the fish. As she heads towards her 15th birthday, it’s important she gets high quality food and I love that it includes glucosamine and chondroitin which helps to keep her joints healthy so she can keep adventuring and looking super sleek and shiny whilst doing it!

In order to provide your senior dog with the best possible nutrition for their life stage, we’ve increased the amount of lower calorie vegetables alongside wholegrain brown rice contained within each recipe - as well as having reduced the meat content to 60%.

This change helps to keep the calorie content of the food where it needs to be for older dogs who typically have slower metabolisms whilst still delivering them the expert nutrition they need to support their overall health & wellbeing.

Our senior recipes contain a tailored mix of vitamins & minerals designed to support your older dog. Senior recipes contain higher levels of Glucosamine & Chondroitin as well as Salmon Oil, rich in Omega-3, to support your dog's joints & bones during their senior years.

In addition, our senior recipes are 15% lower in fat than our equivalent adult recipes in order to help support your dog to maintain a healthy weight as they move into their (usually a little slower) senior years.

Much like us, as dogs get older, they tend to slow down a little and become less active – so it’s important to provide a calorie controlled diet to maintain a healthy weight during their senior years.

Our new recipes are designed to be lighter than adult recipes so that portion size doesn’t need to reduce for senior dogs.

All of our wet recipes are hypoallergenic. This means we carefully select our ingredients to ensure that our recipes are of the best quality for your four legged friend. We use simple, quality ingredients with no junk or nasties. This means delicious and nutritious recipes that are kind and gentle to your dogs tummy.

You can safely store your opened trays of Forthglade wet meals in the fridge for up to two days after opening, without any compromise to quality or flavour.
