CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE Elements® is a super-premium dog food featuring Fresh Lamb, Turkey meal, Chicken meal, Lamb meal & Ocean Fish meal.

We’ve changed our CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE dog food formulas. Our CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE Elements® formula includes just 10 ingredients—along with natural flavors, vitamins, minerals, and probiotics. All of our premium dog foods use quality ingredients, and our new CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE Elements® recipe is made with fresh lamb, plus three high quality meat and fish meals: turkey meal, chicken meal, and menhaden fish meal. We also use whole foods including sweet potatoes, peas and chickpeas for naturally great nutrition. CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE Elements® contains 41 grams of protein in every cup. That’s equal to an 8 ounce lamb chop with a side of sweet potatoes and peas!

We’ve formulated this grain free, protein-packed recipe for adult dogs of all breeds. With fresh lamb, high quality turkey, chicken and menhaden fish meal, delicious flavor, and simple holistic ingredients—it’s great for all adult dogs. For pets who may have developed food sensitivities, a smaller ingredient list means lowering their chance of allergic reactions. With only 10 key ingredients including fresh lamb and whole foods, this simple recipe does not contain fillers, grains, dairy, or eggs.

New & Improved Recipe

Fresh Meat First: Fresh lamb is now the #1 ingredient instead of chicken meal.  We also replaced ocean fish meal with menhaden fish meal.

Whole Foods: We replaced ingredients like tomato pomace with whole foods including sweet potatoes and chickpeas.

Simple Recipes: Only 10 easy-to-understand ingredients – plus vitamins, minerals, natural flavor, and mix of probiotics.

Optimal Protein Levels: Crude protein guarantee is now at 32% minimum. Each cup contains 41 grams of protein; as much protein as an 8 oz lamb chop.

What are the Results?
Improved Taste: Smooth transition from the old formula to this new recipe; and overall improvement in stool quality.

We conducted extensive stool studies to ensure optimal transition to the new recipes as well as overall stool quality.  Our studies have concluded that transition to the new recipes will be smooth and lead to an overall improvement in stool quality.

When changing to CANIDAE® PURE Elements®, some dogs may do better by making a gradual transition over 7-10 days. Start with 25% of the new food mixed with 75% of the previous diet and gradually increase the new while decreasing the previous until the transition is complete.

Grain free diets may not be suitable for all dogs. If you have any dietary concerns, please consult with your veterinarian.

The above Daily Feeding Guidelines are a good starting point on the amount of food suggested to be fed on a daily basis. If you feed more than once per day, simply divide the Daily Feeding Guidelines by the amount of times fed per day.

Always provide plenty of fresh water.
