Wet dog food is usually available in a range of recipes created from a mixture of different types of meat (from beef, chicken, lamb and duck) and vegetables (from butternut squash to carrots).
Wet food can be 'Complete Meal' which means is can be fed on its own as a full and balanced diet, or it can be 'Complementary' which means it should be mixed with dry dog food to provide your pet with all of the nutrients they require.
Some wet food is mixed with with brown rice, pasta and various sauces which we don't recommend as dogs don't require the addition of grain to their diet. Always look for a grain free recipe without artificial additives.
Wet dog food formulas have the highest water content so being soft, it is a great choice for dogs that are picky eaters or have difficulty chewing dry dog food due to dental problems or illness.
The Forthglade range of wet food has been chosen for its high quality, natural ingredients. The complete wet food range is perfect for dogs that don't like dry food or, again, for use as an alternative to raw feeding when going away.

The term hypoallergenic, literally meaning below-average-allergy-causing, is used widely in the dog food industry to identify foods that are less likely to cause an adverse reaction in the dogs that eat them.
Unfortunately there are no official guidelines on which ingredients qualify as hypoallergenic or not and so the definition can vary from one brand to another.
We class hypoallergenic as food with no added grain, wheat, maize, dairy products, soya products and additives, all of which we have often found to be problematic in sensitive dogs.
It is important to note, however, that since dogs can develop adverse reactions to almost any ingredient, no food is absolutely risk free.
The Forthglade wet dog food meals that we stock contains none of the problematic ingredients above, are grain free and therefore would be classed as 'hypoallergenic'.
Wet dog food should be grain free as many dogs struggle to digest foods with grain in it. We don't recommend foods that contain brown rice, wheat or cereal - all of which can cause allergies and digestive issues in dogs - particularly those with sensitive tummies.
Keep the unopened packs in a cool, dry cupboard. Once opened, they should be stored in the fridge and consumed within 2 days.
To avoid digestive problems, we recommend serving Forthglade wet food at room temperature.
