Canidae saved my old dog, Josie’s, life
Sept 9, 2016
I have been meaning to write you for several years now. I just wanted you to know that I have purchased your dog food products for several years now. When I started, it was because my dog had severe food allergies. I did not know that at the time, nor did the vet. Somehow I came across dog food allergies in my quest to find out what was wrong. So, I tried switching dog foods. Canidae was the food I tried and it worked. I felt so horrible I did not know about this earlier or that the vet never thought of it.
Since that time, all dog food brands have hopped onto the band wagon to have better dog foods so there are many choices out there. My reason for this note was to say I still stay with Canidae because you were among the first, as far as I know, to bring good food to the table. As far as I am concerned, you saved my dog’s life. She is gone now, but I continue to buy Canidae as my primary food.
Canidae stands alone for starting with the best by seeing this problem and doing it right to start….not to make up for mistakes. As I said, and I will be forever grateful.
He has his energy and vitality back.
Sept 8, 2016
My senior dog, Spike, had been steadily going downhill health-wise, and I couldn’t figure out why. He’s a shepherd -boxer rescue mutt, and he’d always been big and strong and vibrant, but he was suddenly becoming frail and skinny. He chewed and scratched himself constantly, and seemed lethargic and tired. I began to worry that his age at adoption had been underestimated, and that my sweet boy was fading away into old age. My sister off-handedly mentioned that she’d had to start feeding her dog grain-free food for some skin issues, and I decided that I’d give it a shot and see if it at least helped with Spike’s constant scratching.
I found the Canidae Pure Meadow senior formula, and I’ve never looked back. Not only did his skin and coat improve, but he’s gained some much needed weight, and he actually gets excited about eating again. He has his energy and vitality back. Five months ago, I was mentally preparing myself to lose him. Now I have my buddy back! I can’t say enough good things about this food. It has made such a tremendous difference in Spike’s quality of life, and for that, I am so very grateful.
Thank you for making such a wonderful dog food.

Since 1995 I have fed my dogs Canidae I was so happy when you guys came out with grain free because I have had dogs allergic to grain and has made my and my dogs life a lot easier. I’ve had two labs and two Golden retrievers, one was a Service dog, and I have a puppy in training and they need a lot of nutrients because they have busy days working.
So thank you for making such a wonderful dog food.
Rosie loves Under the Sun!
August 30, 2016
My 2 year old black lab Rosie was suffering from a rash and constant itching which we were led to believe was fleas. After taking Rosie to the vet we found she had an allergy to whole grain corn. So we switched her dog food to Grain Free Under the Sun with lamb and the rash completely disappeared. Not only did the rash go away she now is constantly checking her food bowl to see if we have put more Under the Sun in it. When before she would barely eat the competitors brand. Rosie and my wife and I love Under the Sun!
The result has been astonishing!

My dog had liver problems as a puppy, and as a result was on a veterinary diet, prescription medications, and carefully monitored bloodwork. Even with this diet, she had constant acid reflex, burping, and throwing up. By the time she was a year and a half old, she was deemed “clear” on her liver and was told she could go on a regular high caliber dog food.
I did quite a bit of research on “Khaleesi’s” issues before purchasing a kibble. Your Grain Free Pure Elements and Grain Free Pure Sea sounded extremely gentle on the digestion – and so I decided to try that and I took it one step further by soaking the kibble in water and allowing it to completely soak up so it was already softened before it hit her stomach. The result has been astonishing! Khaleesi no longer has allergies (chewing her feet), no burping or throwing up, and she looks amazing!
Your food has made a major change in her life and the veterinarians can hardly believe it! I’ve included a silly picture of her relaxing with a happy face.
We recommend Canidae to all our new puppy owners.
August 27, 2016
We have been feeding our 6 breeding females and their puppies Canidae All Life Stages for over 8 years. Our dogs love the food. Occasionally, when we run out we have to go get another brand from the market, and find that we have to feed more quantity because they are not satisfied. We recommend Canidae to all our new puppy owners. Thanks for a great product that is geared to prolonged life and complete nutrition for our business and our companions.
I wished I had known about Canidae years ago when Miranda was a young pup.

I wished I had known about Canidae years ago when Miranda was a young pup. I only discovered it a couple of years ago while searching for something for my girl as she at the beginning of her senior years. I discovered Canidae while reading articles about her breed. Canidae came highly recommended for the aging German Shepherd Dog. Fortunately, I was able to find it at a locally owned pet store. She is no longer getting empty calories and she is getting the much needed nutrients to keep her healthy and feeling good. She also doesn’t need as much food since she is being satisfied with her meals. When we are out and about she gets a lot of attention and people are always very surprised at her age.
Within 24 hours, her rash has all but cleared up!
August 20, 2016
Recently, I adopted a 3 y/o female Pug/Daschund dog named Pepper. I noticed that she had a rash under her arms. A few days later, the rash had spread over her torso. She was scratching so hard that she ended up with an infection and required medication. The vet advised me that she may have an allergy to either beef or chicken as that is common in Pugs. I then purchased dog food that didn’t have beef or chicken in it. The medication cleared up her rash. However, after finishing the antibiotics, the rash returned (despite a change in diet). I decided to go to a small pet store that specializes in healthy pet food. While reading many of the bags of kibble, I was somewhat overwhelmed with the number of ingredients in many of the dog foods. I decided to purchase CANIDAE Grain Free – made with fresh bison (bag) and CANIDAE Life Stages – Lamb and Rice (canned). She ate it up and seemed to like it. Within 24 hours, her rash has all but cleared up!
I have had dogs all of my life and never had a dog that was allergic to dog food. Now, I have a dog that has some kind of food allergy. I will feed her CANIDAE exclusively from now on. Thank you for making a dog food that does not trigger an allergic reaction in her!
Thank you so much Canidae for making such a superior food.

I just had to write you and tell you how your Grain-Free PURE Foundations Puppy Formula with Chicken Dry Dog Food has changed my puppy’s life! Jasper, a 4 1/2 month old French Bulldog, has had sensitive stomach issues since I purchased him over two months ago. I have tried several high quality sensitive diet foods – but all have resulted in ‘Cow-pie’ looking poops and many times a day. Of course, he has been completely checked by the vet and parasites we’re not an issue nor were intestinal issues. As soon as I started him on the Grain-Free Pure Puppy, his stool were normal within one feeding! I will never change him from this formula, other than to go to the adult formula when he is of age.
Thank you so much Canidae for making such a superior food.
Pure Sea provided our dogs great happiness as well as strong bodies and beautiful coats.
August 18, 2016
I believe Canidae is a more economical buy than any other dog food we’ve ever purchased as we did not have to feed as much. Our dogs were 57 and 75 pounds and were happy as soon as they consumed their twice daily feedings. They were contented, healthy dogs until cancer ended Lucy’s life at almost 12 years and ailments of old age ended Betsy’s at age 15. We believe Canidae helped keep them strong to withstand disease for many years, and we are grateful.
For several years we fed our dogs Canidae Grain-free Pure Sea with salmon. Our Lucy always did what we called her “Dinner Dance,” bouncing around on her back legs as she loved her Canidae so much. When we mixed Canidae with our Betsy’s food as we changed her from another dog food to Canidae, she would carefully pick out the Canidae and eat it before finally eating the other food. Sadly our dear dogs have gone over the Rainbow Bridge. Pure Sea provided our dogs great happiness as well as strong bodies and beautiful coats. They LOVED their Pure Sea.
His energy level rose to almost a puppy again.
August 16, 2016
We stumbled upon Canidae when our 4 yr. old pitbull decided to be picky about his food, so we figured it was worth a shot. Amazingly, he loved it! His energy level rose to almost a puppy again. His skin and coat were very dry and after switching he had less itching and his coat became very soft. After acquiring our 2 yr old female pitbull who had food allergies and was losing fur due to reactions, she never had an reaction to Canidae and loved it. And lastly, we had a litter of puppies who went on softened Canidae, all were very active, super soft, and held a FANTASTIC weight. I’ve never had the experience of using such a fantastic brand of dog food. Our family thanks you Canidae!!
Within a couple weeks, she was itch free!
August 13, 2016
We rescued our dog, a Blackmouth Cur & German Shepherd mix, named Sade, from the local shelter. She had been returned, neglected, and hoarded. When we picked her up, she was very itchy. So itchy that she would stop mid run to scratch before fetching a ball. We asked around to some professionals, and grain free food was suggested. After researching the dog foods available, we picked your grain free Bison formula. Within a couple weeks, she was itch free! She is happy, healthy, and a wonderful big sister! Thank you so much for your dedication to make a great food for great dogs!
