Dog Food Reviews

All four dogs are doing extremely well on CANIDAE and I intend to keep them on it

I am the owner of two Newfoundlands and two Mastiffs. For many years I have been feeding my dogs another brand of high quality dog food. Recently, from Mastiff Rescue I adopted two 9 month old Mastiff pups horribly abused and as you can imagine, suffering greatly from malnutrition.

I put them on the food my Newfoundlands had been eating. Within a day or so I had nothing but extremely loose stools and piles of it! After a week this still continued. I went to my dealer who suggested CANIDAE.

After only one day of mixing CANIDAE with my former food to accustom their systems to it, the loose stools disappeared. I immediately took them off the old food and started feeding the CANIDAE exclusively.

As you know, big jowled dogs are not the neatest eaters. Some of the kibble landed on the floor and there were my Newfoundlands to gobble it up (one of my Newfoundlands is an extremely picky eater).

To make a long story short, all four of my dogs are now exclusively on CANIDAE. I very much appreciate the size of the kibble – previously, I had to soak my Newfoundlands food in water (since one of the theories of bloat is the kibble expanding). I also appreciate your high-quality ingredients and that no corn, soy or wheat is used. I also noticed that the size of their stools has decreased tremendously whereas before on my former food, I had “mountains.”

My dogs are my kids and nothing makes me happier then seeing four heads in a bowl with tails wagging.

Thank you so much,
Marsha

Hello to the folks at CANIDAE

I have been feeding CANIDAE for 6 months and have seen great improvement in my Samoyeds- show dogs and house dogs. I have also started my sister’s pom on it and her dog should be your poster dog. Her dog had bald spots that would not clear up for over a year and a very dry coat. I put this pom on your food and with in two months her spots filled in and the dog has a beautiful coat and no more health problems. I had a girl that my vet could not figure out why she limped in the front, this was a off and on occurrence. We did x-rays, put her on meds, etc. Since she has been on your food- no more limping. The stories go on. I have a friend that saw the improvements in my dogs and started a couple of her dogs on it and loves it. She has a kennel of 31 sled dogs, some working some show.

Thank you,

No more health problems

There is several people interested in the Casper, Wyoming area. I have been feeding this food for 6 months and have seen great improvement in my samoyeds- show dogs and house dogs. I have also started my sisters pom on it and her dog should be your poster dog. Her dog had bald spots that would not clear up for over a year and a very dry coat. I put this pom on your food and with in two months her spots filled in and the dog has a beautiful coat and no more health problems. I had a girl that my vet could not figure out why she limped in the front, this was a off and on occurrence. We did x-rays, put her on meds, etc. Since she has been on your food- no more limping. The stories go on. I have a friend that saw the improvements in my dogs and started a couple of her dogs on it and loves it. She has a kennel of 31 sled dogs, some working some show. We have been getting it in Colorado at this point. There are people in Wyoming that deal in CANIDAE but we would much rather handle it ourselves. I would like for you to send me info on your kennel program and/or distributorship. I would need exact pricing on this and options. My husband is a trucker and there may be a possibility of getting it shipped up here from your nearest warehouse. Maybe him picking it up or having Northpark or another trucking company picking it up. We would be looking at a pallet at a time. So, I would need weight of the pallet and price.

Thank you

I just wanted to say how impressed I am with your products.

We have two dogs, a golden and a lab, and we can feel good about giving them snap biscuits as treats!

Thank You,

I swear to this

My 9 yr. old dog was losing fur, his coat was dull, he was listless. The health food store in Arlington, WA, told me about CANIDAE and (I swear to this) within 3 days I noticed a HUGE improvement. His fur was not falling out as much, his eyes were bright and he was playing again. THANK YOU! Now my cats are on FELIDAE as well. My mother would like to start her animals on both FELIDAE and CANIDAE–can you give me a store location in Boise, Idaho?

Thank you from all of us!

I’ll never use anything else!

I just wanted to thank you for making such a fantastic product line. My Rottweilers puppy thrives on your food! I had tried numerous other premium brands prior to yours but some claiming to be great for allergic dogs made his coat dull and his skin itchy and flaky, and others he simply wouldn’t eat. I’m now convinced that CANIDAE is the best food on the market. He loves the taste… his tail wags at breakfast and dinner, and his coat glows… no more itchy or dull coat. The price is also lower than most foods that claim to be super premium. Thank you for your devotion to pet health and for producing such a great food… I’ll never use anything else!

Hello CANIDAE – I wanted to write and tell you how much I appreciate your product.

I have a 15 month old Boxer mix dog and for her first 12 months she was fed Iams Puppy exclusively. She had terrible flatulence and often runny stools. However, she grew well and had a great coat. When she turned a year old, I wanted to switch her to an adult / maintenance food.  I researched around 12 different types of dry food, and did reading into what is considered to be needed / best for coat condition / stool consistency / flatulence control.  Most experts seemed to agree that corn could cause bloating and flatulence, and that most dog foods have unnecessary fillers in them. I have owned horses for  14 years and know about corn and fillers in their feed, so I searched for a dry dog food without corn (really tough!) and with more healthful ingredients found CANIDAE. After only one week of eating this food, my dog has almost no flatulence and she passed solid small stools. I fed CANIDAE for 2 1/2 months and then decided to try another food that also had no corn.  During the introduction process (where you feed mostly the former food while putting in small amounts of the new.) my dog began resisting her meals and her extreme flatulence returned. I gave it 2 weeks, then gave up on the “new” food.  I went back to CANIDAE. Success !

Thank you for a great food.

Hi, CANIDAE and FELIDAE is fantastic!

I run Great Lakes Border Collie Rescue, and I searched for 3 years to find a high quality food that all the dogs could eat, my own dogs and the rescue dogs. I finally found CANIDAE at my favorite local pet supply store, after reading in Whole Dog Journal that it was one of the top foods. Within days all the dogs were more energetic (like Border Collies need more!! :-) and within a month I could see a tremendous improvement in their fur, their coats just glisten and are full and beautiful. Two of my own personal rescued dogs have extremely sensitive tummies. I have a lot of problems with soft stools with my new rescues, from the stress of losing their homes, but have not had one single problem since switching to CANIDAE. Since switching my dogs, I have since switch my two elderly kitties who just love the FELIDAE kibble! They are acting like youngsters again which is wonderful to see. Thanks for your fantastic product!

CANIDAE has been just short of miraculous

We adopted our Golden Retriever, Jackson, two years ago. His allergies were so severe that his ears were swollen shut. We immediately put him on a raw diet, and saw some improvement in his allergies, but he still often had infected ears and he would chew his paws until they were hairless and raw. Also, it was hard keeping weight on him with the raw diet, and anything with grain in it would cause horrid allergic reactions. We tried  different supplements, holistic treatments and western medical treatments, but nothing seemed to work. Then, just 6 weeks ago, I read about CANIDAE in the Whole Dog Journal and decided to give it a try. I won’t say that Jackson is now allergy free, but I can say that his allergy symptoms are consistently the most mild they’ve ever been. CANIDAE has been just short of miraculous for Jackson. He’s back to his normal weight, his coat is thick and shiny, and best of all, his allergies aren’t tormenting him day and night.

Thanks!

Well, you’ve made a believer out of a real skeptic!!!!

I have raised Boxers for years and have tried many kinds of diets, but yours has far out-performed the rest. I began my crew on CANIDAE and the Snap Biscuits about one month ago, slowly weaning them on to avoid stomach upset. They are now completely weaned off their old food and onto CANIDAE. Within two weeks of starting, before even complete weaning had taken place, their coats were thicker, shinier and softer. They no longer have any doggie odor of any kind and their breath is sweeter, all the time. I am so very impressed that I cannot express my satisfaction clearly enough. One of my girls is white and she has lots of severe skin allergies. No more scratching or chewing at her feet. Three of them have seasonal flank alopecia-the hair is growing back and filling in spots that were completely bald before we started the CANIDAE. Keep up the good work.

Thanks,
Claire

A VERY satisfied customer and VERY satisfied dogs

This is just a statement in support of your products. We have all rescue dogs, Weimaraners and a Dalmatian. We have used only foods that have been recommended by the Whole Dog Journal, and we have found that CANIDAE has by far worked the best for us. an example, Our Weimaraner Diesel, was 1 1/2 years old when we adopted him. He had been running loose in the desert for several weeks before he came into rescue and then to us. When we got him, his digestive system was always suspect never settling down. We tried everything including medication from a vet. The Red Barn in Reseda, CA suggested that we try CANIDAE. After one day it was a complete change. Everything was normal. At that point all of our dogs went on CANIDAE even the Dalmatian. The ingredients of CANIDAE greatly helped him too as he had always had regular bouts with indigestion. Now, he has them no more.
With the introduction of the Platinum Diet, we are using that for our senior dog and the Dalmatian. It is a fabulous food and VERY cost effective!In the dog rescue that I work for, every time a dog is adopted, I suggest CANIDAE as it has worked so well for us.

Thank You.

His coat is amazing

I would just like to thank you from the bottom of my dogs heart for your wonderful product. I have a 1 1/2 year old setter mix that I got from a no kill animal shelter where I volunteer. From the time Dexter was 10 weeks old until I found CANIDAE, he threw up daily and especially when he went on car rides. We tried 3 different types of food-(Eukanuba, Pro Plan and Nutro), nothing helped. When I started him on CANIDAE, 3 months ago, he has not thrown up, he can be in the car without being sick, he is more energetic, and his coat is amazing, shiny and no more dandruff. He LOVES CANIDAE. I also at the same time switched my 4 cats to FELIDAE. I have 2-11 year old cats, and 2-6 month old kittens. They all love FELIDAE., and the litter box is much easier to manage. Thanks so much for your wonderful products, my “children” are extremely happy with their meals:)

Thank you,
