Dog Food Reviews
I wish I would have found Canidae sooner!
My 5 year old English Pointer mix came to me as an orphan rescue puppy. Mikki has always been energetic, happy, and does well with everyone- from babies and puppies and up.
She had no known health problems until she was about 2. Mikki began having chronic ear infections, as well as infections in between her toes. Thanks to a knowledgeable employee at a pet specialty store, we were able to figure out that Mikki was allergic to grain. Once we switched her to a grain free food the infections stopped, and we were relieved that our pup wasn’t in pain anymore. Mikki did start to develop seasonal allergies, which we were able to remedy as needed with OTC pills. Everything went smoothly until Mikki turned 4. Suddenly, her stomach developed sensitivities to what seemed like everything. It took us over a year to figure it out, as we tried cutting out individual ingredients, adding probiotics and various supplements on a trial and error routine. She was miserable, as she couldn’t make it through the night (let alone 2 hours) without having ‘an accident’. He coat became wire-like and very coarse. She lost her spunk, and everyone in the house (including her little ‘brother’ Sam) was down.
I had narrowed Mikki’s problem down to her need for grain free food, and discovered that she did better on natural food without additives. She started making it through the night, although it was obvious her tummy wasn’t 100% better, I was relieved at any advancement. The natural food I had some luck with was fish based protein, so as an experiment, I tried slowly switching Mikki to a grain free, natural chicken based food. All progress that had been made was lost- so an important discovery had been made! I began to search for grain free, natural, fish protein food. CANIDAE met all of Mikki’s needs. I ordered a bag of CANIDAE Pure Sea with Salmon. I slowly started switching Mikki to the new food, and the results are amazing.
She has been enjoying her new food for about 3 weeks now. Immediately the ‘accidents’ stopped, and her energy came back. She wants to play all of the time, and she is back to being the picture of happiness. Her coat has become soft and shiny, and her seasonal allergies even appear to be better! I wish I would have found CANIDAE sooner, it has made an amazing difference for me and my family- thank you!
Thank you for having an amazing product!
This is my Pembroke Welsh Corgi, JB, he turned 1 in June. He’s been on CANIDAE All Life Stages since he started solids and loves it!! Thank you for having an amazing product both my dog and I love!
We absolutely Love CANIDAE!

We absolutely LOVE CANIDAE! We have been on other premium dog foods but many caused us tummy upset and a lot of unwanted gas. Our parents finally made the switch to CANIDAE Platinum Formula Life Stages dry dog food and we have been doing great. Not only are we doing great but our parents are saving money and getting a better product. We also enjoy our once a week “special” CANIDAE canned dog food. We have heard our parents say how it actually smells good vs other brands we have had. We also have many foster siblings coming and going and they are all fed the same as us, to make sure they get a healthy second start. Thanks for everything!

No more drippy eyes
I have been using CANIDAE for my Bichon for 6 months or so. Abby used have drippy eyes with staining that was nasty. Since my switching to CANIDAE Grain Free she is clear! My vet’s secretary asked me about my “cure”, I have recommended CANIDAE Grain Free PURE Land. I also work at a grooming salon where I also share my story.
Our Elder dog became a pup again!
July 11, 2014 Our eldest dog, Molly, has been on another brand of senior food for several years. We recently got a lab pup (3rd member) and the breeder gave us a bag of CANIDAE All Life Stages. We were going up to our cabin with our 3 dogs and I didn’t want to bring all kinds of food, so I switched Molly to CANIDAE. WOW! The elder dog became a pup again in a few weeks! A shiny coat to rival the new lab puppy, more strength to manage her arthritis, going for a swim on her own, grazing for wild strawberries and chasing tennis balls again (not quite the same enthusiasm, though).
Thanks so much for giving Molly some very fine years ahead!
Mulligan loves his new food!
We started using CANIDAE for our little Yorkie, Mulligan, when he started developing hot spots. I did a lot of research about what he was experiencing and one glaring detail continued to stick out to me was what he was eating and really made me look at his bag of dog food. I then researched natural food for him and found CANIDAE. Mulligan loves his new food and treats and I thank you for creating an all natural food that I can feel confident giving to our little boy.
I love the benefit of it being All Life Stages!
June 27, 2014 Attached is one of my favorite pictures of Chino! This was when he was 13 and on one of his many trips to the beaches of Mexico! He was still swimming up until 16 year of age! I started on CANIDAE back in 2002 when we adopted one of our foster dogs, a Pit Bull mix named Kaiya. She had extreme allergies and I was told by another rescuer about CANIDAE, and once feeding it, she truly did better. I have been feeding CANIDAE to my own dogs and foster dogs since then. I honestly should be a Sales Representative for CANIDAE as I tell everyone who asks me about what dog food I prefer! Besides how great my own dogs do on it, I LOVE the benefit of it being All Life Stages, It truly helps when you are free feeding dogs of all ages!
Love your dog food!

Love your dog food! My dog had been gradually growing bald for over a year. After the complete blood tests at the vet with a clean internal bill of health, the doc recommended changing his food to hypoallergenic food, but even changing his food may have no impact on his hair growth. I went to Petco and saw CANIDAE Grain Free PURE dry dog food. After reading the bags, I took the CANIDAE Grain Free PURE Sky with fresh Duck bag home and my dog Henry loved it!! He didn’t have a hard time with the gradual switch either. Henry’s hair grew back within 3 months and with a wonderful shine. He gets compliments on his regrowth and how great he looks. I’m in awe, and I’m a devoted customer from here on!
Thank you for making a gluten-free, corn free, wheat free, antibiotic free and filler-free dog food.

I have recently switched my dogs over to CANIDAE Grain Free PURE and couldn’t be happier! I’ve tried several other grain free and high end diets, but none of them have worked out as well as CANIDAE Grain Free PURE has for my shepherds. My older one has allergies to eggs, flax, barley, kelp, and wheat; but has done wonderfully on PURE. My younger shepherd has done okay on most other high end diets, but (excuse the grossness factor) has never had consistently firm stool until she started eating PURE. Both dogs have been on the diet for two months now and I will definitely continue to feed them CANIDAE Grain Free PURE for the foreseeable future.
Thank you for an outstanding product!

Keep up the good quality!

I just wanted to let you know that we have had our dogs on CANIDAE Life Stages dog food. I believe, thanks to the great quality and ingredients you put into your dog food, we have been blessed to have our dogs as long as we have. Our pit bull mix died last year at the age of 16. Our Maltese turned 16 in April and is still going strong. Keep up the good quality!
Thank you CANIDAE for being there for us!
Zoe, our blonde Dachshund/Chihuahua mix, will sit up like a gopher and beg, even putting her paws together to ‘pray’ for her CANIDAE dog food! Lilly, our new puppy, is watching closely, as she just can’t get enough to eat. Our dogs are fed only CANIDAE. When people comment on how beautiful and healthy they are, how shiny and soft they are, and how smart and well behaved they are, we let them know it has to be the CANIDAE. Our dogs are happier and healthier because of the quality nutrition they have. We love knowing that we are feeding them not only healthy food, but safe food, we have complete trust in CANIDAE and always will. Thank you, CANIDAE, for being there for us.
We’ve shared our positive experience with many of our rescue fans & friends!
Our foster dog, Clover, has several medical issues we are working through with our vet. One of the most severe are her extreme food allergies. We’ve found that CANIDAE Grain Free PURE Sea canned formula dog food with Salmon and Mackerel is the only food she tolerates well. On other foods, she throws up, loses weight, and has horrible skin and itching. We’ve been lucky enough to have some of the food donated as we are a large foster home with over 20 dogs in our care at all times. As a result, we’ve been able to share our positive experience with many of our rescues fans and friends.
Thank you for your quality product that has made a huge difference in the life of at least one amazing rescue pup!
