CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE Elements® is a super-premium cat food featuring fresh Chicken, Chicken meal, Turkey meal, Lamb meal & Ocean Fish meal.

We’ve changed our CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE cat food formulas! Our CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE Elements® formula now includes just 7 ingredients—along with natural flavors, vitamins, minerals, and a mix of probiotics. All of our premium cat foods use quality ingredients, and our new CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE Elements® recipe is made with fresh chicken, plus four high quality meat and fish meals: chicken meal, lamb meal, turkey meal, and menhaden fish meal. We also use whole foods like potatoes and peas for naturally great nutrition. CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE Elements® contains 44 grams of protein in every cup. That’s equal to a 7 ounce chicken breast!

Ideal for Cats with Food Sensitivities
We’ve formulated this grain free, protein-packed recipe for cats of all life stages. With its fresh chicken, high quality meat meals, delicious flavor, and simple holistic ingredients—it’s great for every cat in your family. For cats who may have developed food sensitivities, a smaller ingredient list means lowering their chance of allergic reactions. With only 7 key ingredients including fresh chicken and whole foods, this simple recipe does not contain fillers, grains, dairy, or eggs.

New & Improved Recipe
Fresh Meat First: Fresh chicken is now the #1 ingredient instead of chicken meal.  We also replaced fish meal with menhaden fish meal.

Whole Foods: We removed ingredients like potato protein.

Simple Recipes: Only 8 easy-to-understand ingredients – plus vitamins, minerals, natural flavor, and mix of probiotics.

Optimal Protein Levels: Crude protein is now guaranteed at a minimum of 35%, crude fat at minimum 18%, and fiber is now minimum 3%.  Each cup contains 44 grams of protein; as much protein as a 7 oz chicken breast.

What are the Results?
Improved Taste: Smooth transition from the old formula to this new recipe; and overall improvement in stool quality.

We conducted extensive stool studies to ensure optimal transition to the new recipes as well as overall stool quality.  Our studies have concluded that transition to the new recipes will be smooth and lead to an overall improvement in stool quality.

Feed pregnant cats 50-100% more during the entire pregnancy.  Pregnant and lactating cats should be fed free choice.

Kittens up to six months old may require up to three times the amount of food as an adult cat and should be fed 3 to 4 times a day. Kittens six months to a year may require twice the amount of food as an adult cat and should be fed twice a day.

Senior and Overweight Cats may be fed a reduced amount, depending on the cat’s weight and activity level.

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.
