CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE Elements® Made With Fresh Chicken

Our CANIDAE Grain Free PURE Elements formula is made with just 8 ingredients—along with natural flavors, vitamins, minerals, and live probiotics for digestive health. Fresh chicken is the first ingredient, complemented with chicken meal and turkey meal for an extra protein punch. We also use whole foods like potatoes and peas for naturally great nutrition. Fewer ingredients can be an ideal solution for cats with food sensitivities—and fewer ingredients can even help sensitivities from developing. CANIDAE Grain Free PURE Elements has all the great taste cats crave and all the nutrition they need. Every cup of CANIDAE Grain Free PURE Elements contains 44 grams of protein—as much as a 7 ounce chicken breast with a side of potatoes and peas! Our premium cat foods are made with quality ingredients and are cooked in small batches at our own plant in Brownwood, Texas.

The Daily Feeding Guidelines are a good starting point on the amount of food suggested to be fed on a daily basis. If you feed more than once per day, simply divide the Daily Feeding Guidelines by the number of times fed per day.

Always provide plenty of fresh water.

Grain free diets may not be suitable for all cats. If you have any dietary concerns, please consult with your veterinarian.

When changing to CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE Elements®, some cats may do better by making a gradual transition over 7-10 days. Start with 25% of the new food mixed with 75% of the previous diet and gradually increase the new while decreasing the previous until the transition is complete.
