Our Collie devoured the first bowl!
April 15, 2017
Yesterday, I visited the Petco in Guilford, CT. Employee Kate saw me staring at the dog food section and offered to help. Our vet had suggested a limited-diet food and told me of a brand I could try. After two varieties, my Collie still didn’t like it and would take 2 days to eat a bowl. She has always been a “grazer” but this seemed over the top. Kate offered your brand as an alternative. She picked out the salmon variety. Being in holistic medicine, I was thrilled with your “real” ingredients! Kate mentioned the rep for your company had visited the day before and while I was checking out, she ran in the back to get me a manufacturer coupon.
As soon as I got home, I filled our Collie’s bowl. Much to my surprise, our Collie devoured the first bowl! This morning, I gave her 1.5 cups and again the same results!! Our Collie isn’t a grazer, she just had tasteless food!!
Thanks for a wonderful product and thanks to an amazing employee who took the time to help me. I’m going back for the big bag!!!
Canidae did the trick
April 12, 2017
It’s not an unusual situation – my little Rat Terrier gained a bunch of weight after he was neutered. I tried the usual thing, cutting back on his kibble and adding some veggies for bulk. That helped at first, but then he hit a plateau and wasn’t losing any more. So I switched him to the weight management formula that the older, less energetic dog was doing well on. Things actually got worse! Not only did he not lose weight, he actually gained again, because he was constantly hungry. Not fifteen minutes after eating he’d be pawing at the food bin again, whining, throwing his food dispensing toys at me… I’d give in and give him a snack, and those snacks added up!
Then I switched to Canidae PURE Small Breed. And almost immediately he stopped begging for more food all the time, even though I was feeding less! He is satisfied and energized, and he’s also more focused during training because he isn’t starving. We’re starting to see the weight come off already too. Nothing against his previous brand, it’s also a great food, but it wasn’t working for him anymore, and Canidae did the trick. I’m so glad I made the switch!
Good job to you

I am fostering a blind diabetic dog. My vet wanted her on Science Diet for diabetic dogs. I told him it had way to many chemicals so I wanted to use something else. I searched the internet and found your dog food. I feed the Lamb flavor. She is doing beautifully on your food. If you go to Pope County Humane Society, MN, you will see her pictures there.
I also have a Yorkie with Cushing disease, she has to have food that is very low in fat. Your food is lower in fat than the one he recommended. So she is getting also. I have two dogs that are 16+ and they are eating it also.
Good job to you.
He went from mopping around to being a goofy puppy
March 17, 2017
I just wanted to thank you! My senior citizen bulldog has had a complete change since I put him on your senior kibble. He is happier, playful and full of joy. He has bad hip displysia and ruptured his ccl when he was a puppy. After a month of your senior kibble he is walking better. Has more energy and I think he will be around a lot longer. He went from mopping around to being the goofy puppy I missed.
So sincerely thank you!
They never get rashes and they love the food!
March 8, 2017
When our first Golden Retriever, Cookie, began to have skin problems 20 years ago, I researched the cause and eventually the ingredients of our dog food. I learned that Canidae uses the kind of high quality ingredients that can help her overcome her skin rashes, and switched to Canidae. Her skin cleared up and she became better almost overnight, and we never wanted to try anything else again. It’s a great cost effective way to keep our pets in optimal health. Cookie has passed, and so did her younger friend Ginger. We are now have Snappy, Pearl and MJ (all Golden Retrievers) and still feed them Canidae, because they never get rashes and they love the food!
She loves the food.

We have a 15 year old Chihuahua Katie who in the last year has developed a pancreatic problem. We have tried different types of foods for sensitive stomachs but she still has flare ups and is in pain. She hardly eats and is so thin. One day at Petco an associate showed us the Canidae Pure so we have tried it. What a difference. Katie has only had one episode in the last three months and she is now eating a whole container and sometimes more a day. The terrine style dinners with chicken pate is her favorite. She inhales that one down in seconds. She loves the food. Sometimes she even whines at night before bed and wants to be fed again. She is acting like a puppy again running and playing with the cats and going on one mile walks and loving it. I am so glad we were told about Canidae I would recommend this to anyone who has a pet with stomach issues. Thanks.
This formula has been a life saver!

I work for Petco, but when it came to finding the right formula for my dogs I was stumped for a long time. When we adopted a German Shepherd and a German Shepherd mix, we quickly ran into trouble. One of our girls was breaking out in a rash and one was losing fur-both of these issues appeared to be from allergies. We were puzzled at what these allergies could be, considering we had already removed grain and chicken from their diet. We tried many high quality foods. After trial and error we finally found the Canidae Pure Sea formula. This formula has been a life saver! They are both happy and healthy with no rashes and beautiful, shiny coats. Canidae has made a huge difference in their lives and I continue to recommend it to all of our customers as a high quality food for their pups.
Thanks for your high quality controls

Our Lulu is 12 years old and has been our child for 5 years, since we adopted her. When we got her she was under weight and having skin allergies and had missing hair spots on her sides of her ribs and had low energy. Lulu is now in her best health ever, she as high energy, increased body weight and her coat is luscious and vibrant and silky shiny like never before. I owe it all to the product that is being produced and package for my Lulu.
I would like to thank the team for that amazing product that I feed Lulu everyday she runs to her bowl every time I go to feeder.
Thanks…..for your high quality controls and for putting out the best products. And Lulu thanks the team as well. Keep up the good work!
I am BLOWN AWAY as to the results.

I wanted to take a minute to extend my thanks for making such a quality product. I learned of Canidae from a sales representative at a local petco store. Like so many people are these days, I was a skeptic. I am feeding the Wild Boar food for both my Lab and Ausi mix. Their coats, energy and fatty tumors have drastically changed!!!!! I am BLOWN AWAY as to the results. Coats are shine, shedding is minimal and yes, a reduction in fatty tumor size FOR SURE.
Yes, it’s pricy, but the cost of frequent vet visits is MUCH MORE! With so much negativity that surrounds us in this world today, I had to write a note of thanks and praise to your fantastic company and brand. Please keep the integrity of the ingredients and thanks for keeping our dogs as healthy as they can be.
Only feed her the best, Canidae

Hi, I have a 1 1/2 year old Border Collie/Aussie rescue who been eating your Life Stages since we got her at seven weeks. old! We tell all her friends in the neighborhood and at the dog park how great her food is and that she absolutely loves it. She’s part Border Collie so she told me that she wishes she could be on the front of one of your bags of food or treats. I do everything in the world to make my pup happy playing, exercising, car rides, dog parks, chase sheep, agility, tons of attention, love and only feed her the best, Canidae!! Please help me to make her even happier and let her help promote the best dog food? Mayce just said, pleeze…. Said she’s part Border Collie, not a genius!!

I’m the proud owner/mommy to a 3.5 year old 135lb Rottweiler/Mastiff mix. Banx came to me as a feral rescue pup who had an instant bond with me since the day I picked him up from transport. He has spent every hour of every day with me as he is my certified medical assist dog. Banx is trained to alert me if I am going to pass out, if my sugar is too low or if I am going to get a migraine, he also assists me with my mobility.
Since owning Banx, he has suffered from a number of food allergies and over the past 3.5 years we have struggled to find a food that worked well for him. We have tried dozens of kibble brands and even raw diets and have spent thousands of dollars on food for him with no luck… that’s when my wholesale rep introduced me to the Canidae Grain Free Pure Land Bison dog food. It’s grain, poultry and fish free! He loves it and has had zero issues with it. I’m so happy to finally have found a dog food that my boy not only loves but can tolerate! and am happy to share our story with other pet owners!
