This is just a small thank you!
About a year ago my husband and I rescued a little, under weight, very sick, doberman puppy. We knew we would have a pile of medical bills, but we couldn’t leave her where she was. During all of her treatment to get her better, it was discovered that she had allergies. Not just sensitivity to certain foods, but made her sick, break out in bumps and gastrointestinal issues too.
We are fortunate enough to have a vet that truly cares for her as much as we do. At one point she had a big allergy bump on the side of her face. It itched and of course, she scratched it. Later when it healed, it began to grow. To be sure that it wasn’t anything terrible it was decided to have it remove and tested. It was fine, no bad news. After this procedure our vet suggested a costly allergy test. Without any hesitation we jumped at the chance to find out what was making our girl so miserable. After the results came back we of course eliminated anything in her diet that would cause problems.
Unfortunately, there was still something causing her problems and the only thing we could do was change her diet again. We have always had her on a quality food, but I was sure there was something in the food that was bothering her. The allergy test was great for some basic info, but somewhat limited on foods.
After many hours researching foods trying to find a limited ingredient list that didn’t contain things like milk, eggs, and carrots, some of her worst allergies, I came across your Pure line.
I called you and asked some tough questions. The wonderful lady I spoke with, I wish I could remember her name, answered all my questions. She could even tell me where your protein and fish oil were sourced from. She suggested we try the Pure Land food because of so few ingredients.
We made the switch, and I’m happy to say my girl, Roca is doing better! She feels better, has a few bumps, and the back end is working better too.
So again, I thank you. As a dog owner and professional dog trainer, and seeing the results in my own dog, I have no hesitation recommending your food to my clients and the rescue I work with.
He devours Canidae and even begs for more.
After trying various foods and picking up an uncountable amount of runny yucky poops, I have finally found the food that my dog LOVES. He is very picky and usually leaves half of his meal in the bowl. Well, not with Canidae– he devours it and even begs for more. His stools are now normal and vet visits are no longer warranted. As if that weren’t enough, they have fantastic customer service. Thanks Canidae!
Love this product
I have 5 dogs and after 4 of the 5 had to start talking Benadryl I started to think the food they had been on was the problem. After some research and learning about what goes into their dog food I knew I needed to change the food. Not long after switching to Canidae not only did my dogs fur look better they no longer needed to take Benadryl. Love this product and love what it did for my dogs!

We’re all big fans and have the healthiest puppies because of your great food!
Picky eater LOVES Canidae
February 11, 2016
The first one is Rocky our 1 1/2 yr old lab/pit mix and our pickiest eater. He highly recommends the Canidae!
The second is our 3 yr old Pitbull terrier named Diesel. He is a pound rescue and loves the food!
And the third is Little Bit our other 1 1/2 yr old lab/pit mix (and Rocky’s litter mate) who is also a picky eater and LOVES the Canidae!
The best food we tried so far and also reasonably priced!

As you all know, we bulldogs have quite sensitive bellies, so after months of putting our mom through allergies, liquid BM and just not enjoying our food, after trying 10+ various brands, we discovered Canidae. We eat the Canidae Pure Sky or Sea diet, which we love. It’s delicious, its grain free, it has the necessary oils to make our skin shine! Our skin is silky smooth, no more hives or allergies, perfect (and predictable) BM, all in all, it’s . Thanks Canidae for making such a great product!

Canidae Helped My Dog Gain Weight During Chemo
February 2, 2016
Sophie is my beloved one year old cockapoo. She has always been a picky eater with a very fleeting appetite. After trying lots of high quality brands, Sophie was still hovering on the low end of her growth chart. This past December Sophie’s appetite decreased to an alarming level. After several visits to the vet, she was diagnosed with advanced canine lymphoma. She began chemotherapy treatments the week following her diagnosis at a specialty veterinary practice due to the complex nature of her case. I was scrambling to find a healthy food that would help her put weight back on during chemo, when a very kind sales girl at the pet store suggested I try Canidae. She even sent me home with some samples for Sophie to try. Sophie immediately started picking the Canidae kibbles out of her old dog food. She has now gained back all of the weight and more thanks to Canidae. She is well into the middle of her first cycle of chemotherapy and is responding well to the treatment.
I love Canidae dog food
January 30, 2016
I love Canidae dog food, but most importantly my dogs do so well on it. I have attached a picture of one of my hard-working Collies.
The picture is of Robert, and the cart he used, and the awards he won, for earning his Newfoundland Draft Dog title. Robert had to be in good condition, healthy and full of energy to do the draft and carting tests I competed with him in. He also has his Bernese Mountain Dog draft title and his Collie carting title. Thank you again.
I am so thankful for Pure Salmon!

I rescued my fur baby Mijo on New Years Day 2014 when he was about three months old. As he grows I noticed he can’t have poultry or grains because they make him sick. As he was having trouble gaining & keeping on weight. Finally I started feeding him Canidae Pure Salmon. He loves it & he also started being his “ideal” weight. He was been on it now for about five months without any problems. I am so thankful!
I care about what I feed them
January 20, 2016
We feed our dogs Canidae Grain-Free PURE Sky with Duck Dry Dog Food. We tried several of the others you offer but this one seems to be the one that agrees best with their digestive system and they just LOVE it. Feeding them anything other than your food would be like feeding my family fast food everyday. I would never do that to my human family nor to my furry four legged family either. I care about what I feed them, I want them to live a long and healthy life and by feeding them CANIDAE I’m doing the best I can to ensure they stay healthy and with me for a long time.
My two 3 month old black lab puppies love it

I’m new to using Canidae and just bought my first bag of Life Stages Large Breed Puppy Food a few weeks ago. It’s only been a short while, but before beginning the product, they both had dry skin flakes in their coats but now their coats are jet black and free of dry skin.
Thanks Canidae for the fantastic food

I am the proud momma of 2 basset hounds and a German Shepard mix. Unfortunately two of the three have some pretty bad allergies. We can’t eat poultry, lamb, beef, or grains. I also do foster work and baby quiet a bit. It too a long time to find a food that everyone could eat. I feed mix of Canidae Pure the salmon and wild boar varieties. Not only are my three really healthy but every other dog at the house can eat the food without loose stool or vomiting. The ingredients are top notch and probiotics in the food has really made opening my home to new pets a joyful experience.
