8/11/2013 - I have previously given a review of Canidae food in regards to my dog, Huckleberry who has skin issues. I now need to give a rave review in regards to my other dog, Aela. Aela has the same parents as Huckleberry. hey are just from different litter. Both of them are Australian shepherd/golden retriever, and boxer mix. While Huckleberry has the long fur like a Golden Retriever, Aela’s is thicker , but shorter hair. Her hair always felt more course where Huckleberry’s was soft. I thought there was no changing that. After feeding her the Canidae lamb and rice, I am amazed how soft she is. The skin conditioners in this food is amazing.
