If I only knew then what I know now
I want to send a note to thank you and our new standard poodle puppy thanks you for such wonderful wholesome food. I discovered your “All Life Stages” after doing considerable internet research on pet food. We recently lost our beloved golden retriever after a lengthy illness at only the age of 9. She suffered most of her adult life with skin and ear infections and lacked the energy of many other dogs. Never once did my old vet ever inform me that many of her problems could have been from the food she ate. I wish I had a better understanding of pet nutrition instead of spending a small fortune on medicated ear drops, shampoo; you name it. If I only knew then what I know now. The breeder sent us home 9 years ago with a bag of Purina and we just assumed that we were feeding her nutritious food. Little did I know that we were feeding her a cheap granola bar of corn, wheat and soy…We feel so guilty now it almost makes us cry. When we purchased our new puppy this breeder sent us home with a bag high quality holistic food. We had a hard time finding a retailer near us so I decided to do an internet search for a similar product. That’s when I discovered the real horror of what was in the Purina we fed our old dog. Time after time I found customer and independent reviews on the internet raving about CANIDAE. It was available at our local pet store and our puppy is now on his third bag and he loves, loves, loves it. I also love it because I know he is eating the best possible food we could find, we also get tons of compliments about how his coat shines. I have already converted one friend to CANIDAE and I have told many more about your product. Thank You CANIDAE…Thank You
I am SO grateful my vet carries CANIDAE!
In the wake of this pet food recall, I am SO grateful my vet carries CANIDAE! We already had a yellow lab on this food and we had just gotten a new lab from the humane society and she was acting sick. I took her to our vet and he suggested we switch her to CANIDAE food, like our other dog eats. Within a week, she was acting closer to normal, had more energy and was generally acting like a healthy dog. She’s been on the food for almost a month now and we can really see a huge difference in her personality and general appearance. Her coat thickened up and is shiny now. I’ve had dogs my entire life (don’t ask!) and this is the first time I’ve paid extra money for dog food. It is WELL worth the extra few cents to know our pets are eating a healthy diet. I wish I had known about this food 7 years ago, before our beloved black lab died.
We can’t thank you enough
Just wanted to say thanks, we have always tried to feed our dogs good quality, wholesome food. We recently decided that we could do better. We lost 2 Goldens to cancer in a short period of time and ended up rescuing another in need. This dog was in poor shape. He was beyond skinny, his almost non-existent coat was dead and he had the worst case of dermatitis that my husband, a veterinarian, had ever seen. Well, here we are two and a half months later and we have a GORGEOUS dog. He’s put on weight and muscle, his dermatitis is almost non existent and, he has the beginnings of a coat and it glows. We can’t thank you enough for making a quality product. In light of the recent recalls, we can sleep at night knowing that we are doing right by our beloved dogs. We have several friends and clients that have made the switch after asking for recommendations. They too are pleased. Thank you so much.
Dear little Mabel gobbled up your food
10 years ago, I had a very sick dog that was barely able to keep down any food. After numerous tests, the vet had no conclusive explanation. I watched my dear little rescue languish for months. Never one to give up, I found CANIDAE through much research, word of mouth and trial and error. I am happy to report that dear little Mabel gobbled up your food and never looked back- in fact thrived. As a result, I have been a loyal customer for almost 10 years. Not only have I fed your wonderful dog food to my own beloved dogs but also to numerous strays and fosters that have passed through on their way to ‘forever homes’. I have had nothing but wonderful results with your healthy food and have recommended it whole-heartedly to anyone I come across with a dog (or cat!) The reason I write today is because YOU NEED A NATIONAL COMMERCIAL! I know it’s expensive, but I truly feel that your food is the best on the market and right now there all A LOT of people that need to know about you! I will contribute!
PS. Mabel was the rescue that ‘stayed’ (NO ONE believes she is 13 years old!) and she encouraged me to write! Woof!
His coat is markedly shinier
We first discovered CANIDAE when my dog (I bring him to work) barged into another dog’s office and began eating all his food. When he would barely touch his old kind and devoured yours, we decided to switch. His coat is markedly shinier and I feel much better feeding him multiple protein sources instead of just 1, and without extra preservatives. Love reading all those wonderful Thanks!

Hotel for Dogs casting call
Last Tues I had a cast call at Dream Works Studios for Sunny to play a part in the new movie, Hotel for Dogs. They were so impressed by his coat, (I know a lot is genetics) but he’s being fed good food and a think he has become nicer since I’ve changed to CANIDAE. Thank you.

Bianca is wolfing her food down
I just wanted to send you some wonderful feedback. I have two Olde English Bulldogges. Bianca is 2 years old, and Mike just turned 9 weeks. Bianca has been a finicky eater her whole life. She has tried many other premium brands and has always been a tough pooch to please. We recently switched over to CANIDAE because our new puppy Mike was having digestive problems on another puppy food and they both love CANIDAE. Bianca is wolfing her food down to the last drop and Mike’s tummy issues no longer exist. I just wanted to say how pleased I am with your product and we’re officially done switching foods. I stand by your product whole heartedly and will be recommending your product to anyone I know looking for a good quality dog kibble.

The only food I have ever, or will ever feed him is CANIDAE
I have a 16 month old fawn colored male English mastiff. He came into our lives as a puppy. He is AKC registered and came from a bloodline of champions. The only food I have ever, or will ever feed him is CANIDAE. In addition, I use the CANIDAE biscuits for training purposes. I highly recommend CANIDAE to all dog owners I meet. If you ever consider doing a commercial on the benefits of feeding your dog CANIDAE, I would be more than happy to e-mail you some pictures.

I can’t thank you enough for making such an awesome product.
I just wanted to tell you how wonderful your dog food is. Our 11 year old Chesapeke appeared to be on her last leg, and our vet thought so too. I did research and decided to try CANIDAE dog food. What a difference! Her eyes are clearer. Her hips are better, and she keeps ups, and sometimes outlasts our 1 1/2 year old lab and 7 month old Chesepeke! She’s now 12 and still going strong. I can’t thank you enough for making such an awesome product. I’m spreading the word about your dog food. My only problem with it, is that it’s not easy to get!

He gobbled up the CANIDAE
I just wanted to take a moment to email you about your Chicken and Rice Dry dog food. I have been reading, researching and evaluating many foods for my 5 fur babies. Loved reading the CANIDAE dog food reviews on your site. After having a lot of trouble with perfecting a home cooked diet that worked for all of them, I needed to go back to a more nutritionally regimented diet. CANIDAE was one of several possibilities. I found it at a local pet supply store and the price was very good, less than another brand not as well recommended. So I purchased a bag and gave some old, and some CANIDAE this evening. Most liked it just fine, but my fussy eater picked the old food out and spit it on the floor. Then he gobbled up the CANIDAE. Guess we know where he stands. Thank you for making a quality product.

I love the CANIDAE Chicken & Rice
Hi, my name is Levi, I’m a 10 month old Newfoundland. I love the CANIDAE Chicken & Rice. My mom says it has helps her maintain a great weight for me as I grow and makes my coat very full and shiny so I can stay out in the show ring. Thank you so much for making a great food!

Thank you for making a great pet food
I just wanted to say that I recently switched my two dogs to CANIDAE all life stages and it is wonderful. They are both doing great on it and their coats have never looked better. If I can budget it in I plan to switch our two cats to FELIDAE when the bag of food we currently have runs out. I’m sure they will do equally as well on it. Thank you for making a great pet food and saving me I’m sure hundreds in future vet bills.
Very happy customer and her very happy pups-
