I Liked Everything I Read About This Company
I have to start out by telling you I have grown up with GSD’s over the past 40 years. Every one of them suffered with skin, ear and digestive problems at one time or another so when my baby Fenja (the GSD) began to get chronic ear infections, I thought it was par for the course with the breed.
One day while visiting my sister, I noticed her German Shepherd had beautiful, pink/skin color ears and they were clean as a whistle! And the coat on her was stunning. So of course I asked what she fed her. My sister told me Canidae! I couldn’t get the food fast enough! I went home and started my research on Canidae Pet Food. I learned something very important. They do not use corn filler in the food. I also learned that corn is a major problem for most dogs, especially the German Shepherd! Iand I began a food mix over. Within 3 days of total Canidae our Fenja had amazing ears too! No more dark gunk! All gone and I’m serious. Only 3 days! I’ve had dogs my entire life and never ever witnessed a dog food switch work that effective and fast! It’s been 3 years on Canidae Life Stages and the results are amazing! Clean ears, no more infections and a beautiful healthy coat!
I also would like to mention Lucia. Our 15 year old 65 pound Rottie mix. She also loves Canidae and no one believes she’s 15! But she is! And she runs down the hall and leaps over two steps when I slide open the patio door to go out (instead of taking one at a time)!
Thank you all for the love and nutrition you put into Canidae Pet Food! Our dogs love it and so do we!

3 Musketeers Now Enjoy a Happy, Healthy, and Very Active Lifestyle
After having troubles finding a food that all 3 of my dogs could eat and liked to eat, I found Canidae over a year ago and gave it a try. Ever since, the dogs have all been happy and healthy. I currently share a home with 2 Dobermans (9 yrs and 2 yrs) and a boxer mix (5yrs) so finding a food that they all could eat without having 3 different foods was a priority for me.
The while being fed Canidae. I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome to my food search.
Gives Him a Great Coat and Very Good Health
Canidae was suggested to us by our breeder and I must say my Lab loves it. He has been on Life Stages Chicken meal and rice since solid food. It gives him a great coat and very good health. I highly recommend it!!!

Happy Dogs Now
I’m not much of a “marketer.” They are just happy dogs now, that had a very rough start in life. Part of their happiness is being called to meals that they really enjoy and I’m confident that’s due in large part to Canidae’s quality products. Earl on the left is about 7 years old. His buddy Molly on the right is about 4 years old. They are both rescue labs that are on a steady diet of Canidae lamb meal and rice. They do very well on the food and really enjoy meal time. Great product.
This sweet dog has had issues for all the ten years of her life – until now
We have a (now) 10 year old Westie that we rescued from a pet shop. Possibly because of her rough start in life she has struggled with digestive issues on an almost weekly basis. Lot’s of trips to the vet, trying different types and brands of food to see if we could do anything to help her. After yet again doing some research and reading dog food reviews, I decided to give Canidae a try because of the wonderful reviews. As a pet owner and understanding that you can’t put your dogs on a different food every week, I told myself that this would be our last attempt. I cannot tell you how happy we are that we made the switch! Dumplin’ has been on the Canidae Life Stages Lamb and Rice for about seven months now, and we have not had a single event of digestive issues. She loves her food, and meals are now a pleasure for us both. I cannot thank you enough for this wonderful product. I just wish I had found! you sooner!
The company is super and has fabulous customer support.

My dogs both love Canidae canned and dry food. I know feeding them Canidae is healthy for them and I love to see them gobble up their meals. My greyhound, Cool, starts whining at 5 am and 4 pm everyday….. she wants her Canidae. And being a good mom I feed them at those times. I also love the Canidae frequent buyer club. The company is super and has fabulous customer support. Thank you Canidae staff!

Great Product – Great Customer Care
I have a 13 year old German Short Hair / Chocolate Lab mix that I rescued in 2009. He was in very poor shape. I have always tried to find quality food for him without breaking the budget and I would say he has done very well for his age and history.
Last year he was diagnosed with kidney failure and I did a lot of research to determine the best approach for keeping him as healthy and active as possible. I was looking for a lower protein, lower fat, low phosphate & sodium, and high fiber food. I did not want to go to the extreme diets that reportedly left the dogs with no energy.
I tried some that seemed to fit what I was searching for and realized that Buster was not really responding the way I had hoped. He began to suffer from loose stool and was developing a serious problem with digestion. Vomiting increased and I became very concerned.
After some further research, I found out about Canidae Platinum and decided to switch Buster to that food. The switch had to be immediate, due to the recommendation from the vet, so I was not able to gradually switch him over. Buster handled the switch well with minimal problems and within a couple of weeks his improvement was remarkable. His stool was normal and his digestion much better with no more vomiting.
His coat is shinny again and his energy level is much more normal. He wants to play around every morning and goes on 3 to 4 fairly long walks every day. We are on the third 30# bag of Canidae Platinum and you would have a hard time convincing me to switch to anything else. The staff at Canidae worked with me to provide the AS FED values without hesitation. They knew their product; they were friendly and knowledgeable. No hype, just great dog food and excellent customer care.

Look how shiny her coat is!
This is Honey. She is an 8 yr old lab/hound mix. She is a rescue from Tennessee that ended up in upstate New York. My brother got her from a woman who adopted her first. She told us she fed her Canidae. I picked it up for my brother and brought the food to him for her as they do not sell it in our small town store. Unfortunately, my brother died 6 months after he adopted her, so I took her because I knew my brother would have wanted that. That was 2009, and she only gets Canidae. Look how shiny her coat is! She is so sweet and I love her so much. And she gets the Canidae biscuits too.
Canidae Pure line has really changed Torque’s life
We rescued Torque 3 years ago and his first year he seemed to be a normally puppy. After his first 4th of July our neighbor accidently left our gate open and the curious pup he was he took off for an adventure. For a long 4 weeks he went missing with sightings in a neighborhood a mile away from home now and then but no one could catch him they kept saying. When we gave up a phone call came in from my many missing posters. We found out he was sniffing his way back home and he was only 2 blocks from his safe haven. Torque seemed fine at first just hungry with bloody feet from all the running. Couple months after being home he couldn’t keep his food down, he had no energy and just laid in bed losing more and more weight. He was supposed to be at least 60 lbs at his age and he was 40 lbs now at 1 year 6 months. We took him to 4 vets and finally heard about a specialist who diagnosed him with Addison disease. He lived and takes a pill everyday and an injection every month but is back to his normal self. With all he went through and his rare disease, which is not from genetics, his skin was dry, chapped, bleeding sometimes and thin. We were told that was normal and he would fight it the rest of his life. Since we found Canidae at an off-road convention our dog has been on it 3 months and has gained 10 lbs, his hair is shiny and thick and no more dry skin. Everyone told us he would always have these problems but Canidae Pure line has really changed Torque’s life, thank you Canidae.
The dogs love it as well and it’s helped keep them healthy, wealthy, & wise
Just wanted to drop a note of thanks for continuing to provide a great product. We had won a contest through a promotion you were doing with Speedway Illustrated where our dog had won ‘Shop Pet of the Month’ and you all had given us a year’s worth of Life Stages dog food. We now have two Cockapoos and have continued to use the Life Stages line of food and have been happily paying for it now for about 2 years beyond the contest supply.
Just wanted to take time again to say thanks for supporting the contest and thanks for creating such great products! We really love your product! The dogs love it as well and it’s helped keep them healthy, wealthy, & wise… (well… Cody may not be too wise) for a very happy family !
Thankfully I bought Canidae
My Shepherd is a rescue with a lot of digestive problems due to her diet of a nutritionally insufficient pet food that she had been fed since puppyhood.
She had irritable bowel disorder, and an array of skin problems. I was doing some research and found that the “culprit” was corn, as well as protein sources. While searching for the food that would agree with her – I tried many, and none of them worked. Thankfully I bought Canidae, and although all the benefits were not immediate, some were. My kitty is the same way – with chronic UTI’s which were not helped by using a variety of brands of cat food.
I am very grateful for Canidae – the company has maintained its standards where many in the industry have “cut corners.” My Shepherd is 10 years old – “usually” German Shepherds don’t live much past that age – but despite some “old age” problems she is still enjoying life :), and I am glad that her diet is one of the things that I don’t have to be concerned about because I feed Canidae!!
I hope you don’t mind, but I am attaching a picture of “Jewels” so that you can see one of your happy “customers.”

All pets doing well on CANIDAE PURE Sea!
I just wanted to write you and let you know that I recently switched my two dogs and two cats over to Canidae Pure Sea, and they are all doing very well on it. My recently rescued PitBull had a skin condition and a very sensitive tummy when we got him home. We tried a couple brands before we switched to Pure Sea. Since making the switch, my pit is not having tummy issues, and his skin and coat are shiny and healthy. Thank you so much!
