Dog Food Reviews

Thank you for making a great pet food

I just wanted to say that I recently switched my two dogs to CANIDAE all life stages and it is wonderful. They are both doing great on it and their coats have never looked better. If I can budget it in I plan to switch our two cats to FELIDAE when the bag of food we currently have runs out. I’m sure they will do equally as well on it. Thank you for making a great pet food and saving me I’m sure hundreds in future vet bills.
 
Very happy customer and her very happy pups-

Thanks, CANIDAE for such an amazing food

I would like to thank CANIDAE for the best dog food I have ever used! I have tried other foods and they haven’t even come close to the quality of CANIDAE. I made the mistake of switching from CANIDAE to another brand that was recommended by a close friend. After my dog acquired a skin irritation, dull coat and weight gain, I promptly switched back to CANIDAE and converted my friend also!!!! I will never use another dog food again! I get compliments constantly on how GREAT my Rottweiler “Bart” looks and I tell everyone I owe it to CANIDAE!!!! Thanks, CANIDAE for such an amazing food and for caring for my dogs health!

Thank you, CANIDAE, for not cutting any corners

2007-10-02Our bulldogs, Minnie Lou (2 years old in the picture) and Jack (3 months old in the picture), are avid fans of CANIDAE All Life Stages. They love the taste and inhale their food like each feeding will be their last! We are thankful to have discovered CANIDAE, as the dry formula has enabled our precious babies to maintain silky smooth coats and a level of health unparalleled by foods of several competitors. We know this because, prior to finding CANIDAE and before Jack was born, we fed Minnie Lou several other “high end” brands. She did not thrive nearly as well on any of them. We recommend CANIDAE All Life Stages for people looking to feed their dogs a safe and nutritious formula at a very reasonable price. CANIDAE’s product reflects the company’s stated commitment to providing “the highest standard of excellence for product quality, palatability, and customer satisfaction.” Thank you, CANIDAE, for not cutting any corners.

We are convinced that this is a superior food

2007-10-20It was very nice to speak with you today. You will see why it was so important for us to have his health and skin in top condition. As a therapy dog, visits cannot be made if an animal has any lesions, open wounds or bare spots, or if they are on any medication. We struggled with Hero’s allergies for years. He would develop ear infections and skin lesions, they were very hard to clear up, and he was constantly on strong antibiotics to treat the secondary infection that would develop, and also to try to control his allergic reactions. We have not had to treat Hero for these symptoms for over a year since feeding CANIDAE. We are convinced that this is a superior food. Hero loves CANIDAE, and we do too. (Note: Now all five of our dogs eat CANIDAE.)
  
With warm regards,
Heddie and Hero

It has been almost a year since I switched and Chynna is doing great

After the recall scare, I decided to switch dog food for then 11 year old terrier mix dog, Chynna. The food she was on was not one of the recall but she has been having bladder infections her entire life and was overweight despite giving her a food for overweight dogs. After reading about all the stuff that was in other dog foods and all the great reviews for CANIDAE, I decided to let her try it. It has been almost a year since I switched and Chynna is doing great. She has lost close to 5 pounds, has a lot of energy and no bladder infections. I adopted another dog 6 months ago and immediately threw away the food the pound gave and started her on the CANIDAE All-Stages-Of-Life dry food formula. CANIDAE is more expensive than other food, but the money that I saved in medicine for bladder infections and vet visits more than make up for it. One thing to be thankful for with the food recall, it made me more aware about the nutrition of my dogs.

Immediately after switching Dot to your food we saw a miracle happen

2007-12-23aI purchased a Lowchen puppy (Dot) in September 2006. She has had inflammatory bowel disease her entire life and we’ve spent thousands of dollars with the Vets in an attempt to figure out the problem.

Dot suffered with mucus stools every day and had bloody stools every four to six days her entire life. She also had a gurgling stomach and would throw up often and become dehydrated when this would coincide with the bloody stools. The vets put her on ZD/Ultra thinking she might have protein allergies. It did not help. After a year, the vet’s final decision was to leave her on antibiotics permanently since the antibiotics would lessen the amount of bloody stools to every 10 to 12 days.

I decided I wasn’t happy leaving her on the antibiotics. In an effort to help little Dot I decided to try your CANIDAE Lamb and Rice food. Immediately after switching Dot to your food we saw a miracle happen. Her stools are normal. Her stomach is fine. WE and DOT ARE THRILLED!

Evidently Dot has an allergy to corn. Dot will always eat your Lamb and Rice formula from now on. We actually put all three of our dogs on it and they all love it.

Thank you for producing such a quality dog food! You’ve saved the life of one little Lowchen named Dot who is now healthy and very happy to eat your Lamb and Rice dog food!

Thank you CANIDAE for making a superior dog food.

2007-12-23bThank you CANIDAE for making a superior dog food. I’ve been feeding CANIDAE for many years now and all of my dogs are doing great on it. I have 4 dogs ranging in age from 11 years to one year old. My 11 year old is still active in agility and has been ranked in the top 3 for his breed (AKC stats) in agility for the past 6 years. And was #1 in mid year stats. My newest addition also loves CANIDAE food and I’ve enclosed some pics of her. Now I know, much to her dismay, this is not exactly the best way to feed a growing pup, but it made for a cute pic. (Excuse the mess in that room, at the time we were remodeling.)

Thank you for an awesome product

2007-12-23cOur black Lab Khalua just turn 17 years old last Aug.22, 2007. Eight years ago she was on Iams dog food. She was skinny, her coat was dull and falling out plus she was lethargic and had trouble swimming at the river. My youngest daughter turned us on to CANIDAE, we were amazed how she immediately gained weight, her coat is thick and shinny plus she has so much energy. People who meet her can’t believe she is 17 years old, she swims and fetches tennis balls, runs and jumps all day long. I know my dog is getting great diet with all her nutrients she needs daily, as they say the proof is in the pudding. It is a shame you do not have a humandae, because I would buy it. Thank you for an awesome product.

We couldn’t be happier with your All Life Stages formula

2008-01-21We are proudly loved by a two year old Newfoundland and an eight month old Golden Retriever. Both of our dogs have been fed CANIDAE since we brought them home as pups. We couldn’t be happier with your All Life Stages formula for our boys! They are the picture of health with beautiful thick, shiny coats, bright eyes, clean teeth, fresh breath, normal stools, are of healthy weight and each have enough energy to keep us busy! We receive daily compliments everywhere we go. Neither have had any health issues so far and that makes us very, very happy! We are convinced that CANIDAE is the best kibble on the market for our large breed dogs and I continually recommend it to everyone I know. In fact, I’ve recently been able to get several friends and family members to switch over their dogs to CANIDAE as well! Our cats are fed FELIDAE and they are just as happy and healthy as their canine brothers. Thanks again.

This is the first food I’ve found that both of my dogs thrive on

2008-01-21bIt’s not often I write a review about a product, but I had to write to you today to thank you for making such a great product – no complaints. I am the proud owner of two dogs, one of which is in training as a Search and Rescue dog. As a growing working dog, I need to know she is getting a good quality food that will help her stay fit and healthy for her job. However, her nutritional needs are complicated by food allergies, which stared me on my search to find a food that meets her needs without breaking my budget. Most of the foods I was coming across were prohibitively expensive. I came across your product one day at a local pet store, and after extensive research, decided to give it a try. Not only have her ear infections and irritated paws cleared up, but her coat is thick and shiny, and she has plenty of energy to meet the demands of a search and rescue dog. As an added bonus, this is the first food I’ve found that both of my dogs thrive on. My other dog has always grazed on her food (making it virtually impossible to keep weight on), and for the first time in 5 years, her bowl is emptied every meal and I’ve actually had to reduce the amount she gets fed as she was putting on too MUCH weight. I am now recommending this food to all of my friends and family with dogs. Thank you for making such a wonderful, affordable product!

I am thrilled beyond thrilled with CANIDAE

2/17/2008 – 2008-02-17aMy story isn’t nearly as interesting as the others I have read on your site, but it’s still fantastic what CANIDAE and FELIDAE have done for my dog and cat.
 
I was just at the vet clinic not three days ago seeing one of the new vets. I had to write you and tell you how much your food has done because I have never seen a vet so shocked. She couldn’t believe how clean my dog’s and cat’s teeth and ears were. I DON’T clean them regularly. I only dry my dog’s ears out after a bath.
 
While my cat has been through no major health issues, we have had her on FELIDAE since we adopted her at 4-months-old. This is because of our dog, who HAS had MANY issues.
 
2008-02-17bOn top of the costly surgery for when Jackson chewed up a green bean can, he has been at the vet an average of twice a month (sometimes twice a week) over his first year and a half of life. Constant staph infections, scaly, horrible dandruff, hair loss (and when I say hair loss, I mean gobs of it – one woman walking by said she’d never seen a lab with such an interesting coat. I said it’s bald patches. She was embarrassed). He was on 40 mg of prednisone a day at one point. He weighed over 125 pounds because of the meds, and we had him on z/d, I believe, and I frankly couldn’t afford it anymore. There was no way I was giving him up or putting him down, but I was at my wits end.
 
The vet tech had told me to try the CANIDAE lamb and rice before we tried the z/d. We had no success after three months, so I thought CANIDAE was a bust. Then we went to z/d and I went broke – and it didn’t work, either. We did test after test after test, food trials, etc., etc. Jackson is allergic to dust believe it or not, and he is likely allergic or sensitive to some human foods like peanut butter and processed foods – but don’t know that for sure.
 
Anyway, I decided to give CANIDAE another try. Something told me it would work this time, so I tried the ALS instead, and lo and behold, Jackson has hair again and is on 5 mg of prednisone every THIRD or FOURTH day!!! He will likely always take some amount of prednisone, as a dust allergy is pretty hard to overcome, but I am thrilled beyond thrilled with CANIDAE.
 
This last vet visit was the first one after over SIX months, and it was for routine vaccinations!!!
 
Couldn’t be happier…

CANIDAE is definitely helping her live a long and healthier life!

3/1/2008 – I have a testimonial up for my miniature schnauzer Bonnie. She is the 9 year old black mini in the picture on the testimonial page. I wanted to update about her. The vet updated her age to 13-16. In April it will bump up 14-17. Her coat is still in great shape and she gobbles down her kibble still. She has been having trouble with her back end lately due to spinal problems. Other than that the vet said she can’t believe how healthy her blood tests are for a dog her age. She said the CANIDAE is definitely helping her live a long and healthier life.

I have a newer foster dog, also a mini schnauzer. He came into foster care eating 2 brands of horrible food. He had heartworms and was treated for that. He then had giardia run rampant in his system. He currently has malabsorption syndrome from his system shutting down due to the medical stress. He gobbles up the CANIDAE food. He LOVES the canned food and the kibble and I found him in the bag earlier tonight. I am hoping he will start gaining some weight soon. I have noticed a huge difference in his skin and coat. Even though he has lost weight with the mal. syn. he has picked up more energy, a wonderful coat and skin condition. He was so itchy and scaly when I got him. Now he rarely itches. His skin is clear.

I am so thankful that the pet store owner in RI showed us CANIDAE.
