My outlook on life took a turn towards a brighter light!
I wanted to take time today to conduct my first review on a product that changed and absolutely saved my life. Almost six months ago I went through a horrible ordeal with my health. I had lost almost 80% of my hair and dropped so much weight that my body began to look emaciated. My mom took me to see the Veterinarian who mentioned that I had started showing signs of a diabetic reaction to the corn and other fillers that were in the dog food I was being fed. It was strange to us all seeing as I had been fed all brands of dog food and had never had any health issues.
The Vet stated that I was what some could be referred to as a double whammy. You all know that I am both Chihuahua and Italian Greyhound and these breeds are known to have horrible food allergies. The double whammy caught up with me and in the beginning of the year I was diagnosed with a corn allergy. A few weeks later I was diagnosed with an allergy to wheat and soy.
My mom was having trouble finding a dog food that in essence would not get me sick or worse, kill me.
While we were shopping for a new baby for me we saw the shelf advertisement for Canidae dog food.
We got home and I immediately begged my mom to serve me some and Wowzers this stuff was amazeballs. I loved it so much that I begged my mom for a second serving. She gave in and I ate the entire second serving. This dog food is awesome. I never thought I would say this but I LOVE peas. This meal has peas and sweet potatoes. I quickly began to put my weight back on and my hair started to grow again. My outlook on life took a turn towards a brighter light. I had become embarrassed of how I had looked and it had slowly started me into my world of depression.
I started walking with my head held up high while out in public and I was now begging my mom to take me places with her.
If any of my online friends have any allergies to corn, wheat, and or soy then I absolutely recommend you try the Canidae Grain Free line dog food. I am also happy that they have their distribution plant here in Texas.

They will always be Canidae dogs.

When I opened a new bag of Canidae Chicken today both dogs came flying into the washroom. They think food from a new bag is special! They get so excited. They have both enjoyed Canidae since being rescued over seven years ago. They get good check ups at the vet and have tons of energy. I recommend Canidae to all my dog parent friends.
Thanks again. With my good buddies, Chrisy and Herbie.

Switched my two golden retrievers to Canidae and they LOVE it
May 30, 2015
I recently switched my two golden retrievers to Canidae and they LOVE it. We switched for a few reasons, the main one being that one of my goldens, Luna, has a very sensitive system and seemed to be having acid reflux type issues on her other food as well as ongoing bladder issues. She is doing much better with Canidae’s grain free duck formula!
I work at a vet clinic, so I used to get my food (we carry Hills science diet) discounted. It is worth the switch and extra cost.
Thanks again for an awesome food for my two favorite girls!
Thank you so much for giving Luke a better quality of life
May 25, 2015
Luke is now 10 yrs old and has been on Canidae dog food for 5 yrs now. Luke had seizures since age 5 and they slowly got less and less I believe due to changing to your canidae dog food. He has been seizure free now for 2 years this May. I’m so glad I never medicated him and alI I had to do was switch to your dog food. Thank you so much for giving Luke a better quality of life😄
Thank you again for all your help!
He is an amazingly healthy dog on Canidae!
May 18, 2015
I would like to once again thank you for your amazing food. Lobeau (red APBT) was born June 16, 2007 and was the runt of 12! He has been by my side since he was 12 weeks old. He has been on Canidae since he was about a year in a half old. Since being on Canidae he has not had issues with hot spots, he doesn’t shed nearly as much, he doesn’t defecate that often (and it doesn’t smell as bad). He was neutered around the time that he started eating Canidae and has never been over weight! He is an amazingly healthy dog.
This past Friday (May 15, 2015) he had to go to the vet for dental because he chipped a tooth while chewing on an antler. Since this is not his normal vet, I decided to not tell them how old he was. I told them that I was unsure of his age and for them to let me know how old they thought he was. The vet who looked at him said that he looked to be around 1-2 years old. Her final guess was 18 months to 3 years old. Lets just say, I was one proud pet parent! She guessed his age at no more then 3 years old, that’s 5 years younger then what he is!!! I was very excited.
My black dog is named Sable. I got Sable when she was 5 weeks old because the person who had her was tired of puppies (I know right, who can be tired of puppies!?!). Sable turns 5 on September 9 of this year (2015). Sable is spayed as well and is in excellent condition. She has never had health problems and only sees a vet to receive her shots. The last two dogs (the Chihuahua and the Leonberger mix) are currently my foster dogs. Anytime I have fosters, I always opt out of receiving the food the rescue is donated so that they can be on a healthy, steady diet with Canidae. I would love, Love, LOVE to help get the word out about Canidae. You guys are amazing and I thank you for the health of my animals every day!!!
Thank you again,
It wasn’t until I found Canidae Grain Free Pure that I was fully satisfied and comfortable with making it the food choice for my dogs.

I fully understand the importance that diet plays in the lives of pets. Before adopting my two dogs, I did extensive research on dog food, determined to find the best for them. This included hours of reading through ingredients, unbiased reviews, and consumer reviews. Many times I would like the reviews I read but quickly turned away from a brand after I read the ingredients; and vice versa. It wasn’t until I found Canidae Grain Free Pure that I was fully satisfied and comfortable with making it the food choice for my dogs.
Thank you so much for your dedication to providing a quality dog food that they truly enjoy!!

After switching she has a shiny coat, healthy skin, no more itchy bumps, and her hair has grown back in!
May 5, 2015
This is Kira our red Doberman and Chloe our Boston Terrier. Kira has terrible allergies to everything and until we found Canidae wild salmon limited ingredient was constantly flaky and itchy with bumps and patchy hair. After switching she has a shiny coat, healthy skin, no more itchy bumps, and her hair has grown back in. Chloe our Boston Terrier is on Canidae life stages, she can eat just about anything. I love what it has done for her coat and skin. Healthy happy fur babies make me happy 🙂

And since we proudly support American independent companies Canidae fit the bill perfectly.

All the best.
The more we read up it seemed a grain free diet was the best course.
April 30, 2015
My Wife and I rescued a Border Collie-Sharp Pei mix who is so smart and intuitive. Unfortunately when we rescued him he had Demodectic mange. After treating him and getting almost back to normal he had gone thru cycles of hair loss from dematitis. The more we read up it seemed a grain free diet was the best course. We have 4 dogs total and we prefer to buy the best food and biggest pound bag at a fair cost. We had found lifestages at our local feed store with 4 sources of protein no corn, wheat or soy-the 44lb bag. But for my dog Romie the border-Pei his skin and hair still felt like nappy and wirey. We took the plunge 2 mos ago with your Pure brand dog foods. We found the best for him is your fish and duck choices , we alternate every 2-3 weeks. I am happy with changes to my other dogs as well; less corn allergies =no more incessantly licking their feet and a lot less build up in the ears.

We are so please — thank you CANIDAE!
April 26, 2015
We were challenged by the way our German Shepard Mix Olivia was reacting to the food we were feeding her. She struggles with limited energy, dry skin and horrible intestinal issues. Our Soft Coated Wheaten, Bailey could eat rocks but he too struggled with dry skin. Through research, trial and error we found CANIDAE Grain Free PURE Dry Dog Food. We add vegetables and are amazed at the change in both. Olivia has regained energy, a smoother coat and intestinal issues are gone. As for Bailey — we struggled he never really liked what we served and would often not eat. Now he is sitting patiently in the kitchen waiting to be served. His skin is less dry and scratchy. We are so please — thank you CANIDAE.

Hank is soooo much happier (and healthier)!!
April 24, 2015
Hello, Canidae Crew! We have a 2-year-old Spinone/lab mix named Hank we adopted when he was a puppy. We fed him Science Diet puppy, and then went on to adult. We found out he has food allergies not too long ago, as he had multiple ear and skin infections in the last few months. He would shed like crazy and keep us up at night with all of the itching and head shaking. We decided to give Canidae Grain-Free Pure Elements a try, since multiple people told us that their dogs had the same issue and switched to Canidae. He’s soooo much happier (and healthier)!! He doesn’t itch very often and his ears and skin are clear! And his coat: BEAUTIFUL! An added bonus: he loves the lamb flavor! Since it worked so well for Hank, we decided to make the switch for our 3-year-old cat, Gracie. Both of them are so happy and healthy! Thank you so much for making a food that we can trust and both of them enjoy!
