Canidae nourishes them to their full potential.

June 19, 2015

BradleyI have two beautiful border collies.  Their energy, grace and mobility are wonderful to behold.  I came to use Canidae because another well-advertised brand was making them sick.  Foxx would have energy for 1/2 hour, then collapse into apparent exhaustion/fatigue.  He was getting a diabetic reaction to the corn and other “fillers” in this kibble.  I began to read ingredients labels.

Canidae nourishes them to their full potential.  I have used it for 9 years now.

We have been feeding Canidae All Stages for awhile now

June 19, 2015

BarbaraOur dog Kiwifruit was having issues with the skin on her belly getting inflamed and with red bumps and pustules. We tried 3 foods with no change. We have been feeding Canidae All Stages for awhile now, and her belly has been clear ever since. Our other 2 dogs are doing great on it too!

This is my second bag and I have to say my dog loves it.

SerenaI recently have switched from Beniful dog food to Canidae for my German Shepard.  I love it too because it requires less amount of food to fill her up as well as she has had no problems at all digesting it.

We wanted a food that could help keep her energetic and healthy at the same time

June 16, 2015

JillI had been looking to upgrade the quality of my dog’s food for some time, especially after reading a lot of bad press about the name brand food we had been using. Our mutt Lilah just turned 10, so we were mainly concerned with her weight, skin and activity, and we wanted a food that could help keep her energetic and healthy at the same time. I probably spent about 30 minutes in Petco reading labels and asking for advice from the staff, when I met a Canidae employee named BJ Ely who basically bet me that Lilah would be happy with Canidae, and he offered to personally reimburse me if she didn’t like it. Well, so far so good, because she likes it so much that we have to take her bowls away so she won’t cry until we give her more. She’s not as enthusiastic (yet) about the grain free biscuits as her go-to treats, but we’re hoping her spoiled tastes will come around.

My outlook on life took a turn towards a brighter light!

Hello All,

valerieI wanted to take time today to conduct my first review on a product that changed and absolutely saved my life. Almost six months ago I went through a horrible ordeal with my health. I had lost almost 80% of my hair and dropped so much weight that my body began to look emaciated. My mom took me to see the Veterinarian who mentioned that I had started showing signs of a diabetic reaction to the corn and other fillers that were in the dog food I was being fed. It was strange to us all seeing as I had been fed all brands of dog food and had never had any health issues.

The Vet stated that I was what some could be referred to as a double whammy. You all know that I am both Chihuahua and Italian Greyhound and these breeds are known to have horrible food allergies. The double whammy caught up with me and in the beginning of the year I was diagnosed with a corn allergy. A few weeks later I was diagnosed with an allergy to wheat and soy.

My mom was having trouble finding a dog food that in essence would not get me sick or worse, kill me.

While we were shopping for a new baby for me we saw the shelf advertisement for Canidae dog food.

We got home and I immediately begged my mom to serve me some and Wowzers this stuff was amazeballs. I loved it so much that I begged my mom for a second serving. She gave in and I ate the entire second serving. This dog food is awesome. I never thought I would say this but I LOVE peas. This meal has peas and sweet potatoes. I quickly began to put my weight back on and my hair started to grow again. My outlook on life took a turn towards a brighter light. I had become embarrassed of how I had looked and it had slowly started me into my world of depression.

I started walking with my head held up high while out in public and I was now begging my mom to take me places with her.

If any of my online friends have any allergies to corn, wheat, and or soy then I absolutely recommend you try the Canidae Grain Free line dog food. I am also happy that they have their distribution plant here in Texas.

Happy Eating!!

They will always be Canidae dogs.

MarieWhen I opened a new bag of Canidae Chicken today both dogs came flying into the washroom.  They think food from a new bag is special! They get so excited. They have both enjoyed Canidae since being rescued over seven years ago. They get good check ups at the vet and have tons of energy.  I recommend Canidae to all my dog parent friends.

Thanks again. With my good buddies, Chrisy and Herbie.

Switched my two golden retrievers to Canidae and they LOVE it

May 30, 2015

Ali-DI recently switched my two golden retrievers to Canidae and they LOVE it. We switched for a few reasons, the main one being that one of my goldens, Luna, has a very sensitive system and seemed to be having acid reflux type issues on her other food as well as ongoing bladder issues. She is doing much better with Canidae’s grain free duck formula!

 I work at a vet clinic, so I used to get my food (we carry Hills science diet) discounted. It is worth the switch and extra cost.

Thanks again for an awesome food for my two favorite girls!

Thank you so much for giving Luke a better quality of life

LukeHere is my dog, Luke, and his testimonial:

Luke is now 10 yrs old and has been on Canidae dog food for 5 yrs now. Luke had seizures since age 5 and they slowly got less and less I believe due to changing to your canidae dog food. He has been seizure free now for 2 years this May. I’m so glad I never medicated him and alI I had to do was switch to your dog food. Thank you so much for giving Luke a better quality of life😄

Thank you again for all your help!

Best regards,

He is an amazingly healthy dog on Canidae!

Lobeau2I would like to once again thank you for your amazing food. Lobeau (red APBT) was born June 16, 2007 and was the runt of 12! He has been by my side since he was 12 weeks old. He has been on Canidae since he was about a year in a half old. Since being on Canidae he has not had issues with hot spots, he doesn’t shed nearly as much, he doesn’t defecate that often (and it doesn’t smell as bad). He was neutered around the time that he started eating Canidae and has never been over weight! He is an amazingly healthy dog.

This past Friday (May 15, 2015) he had to go to the vet for dental because he chipped a tooth while chewing on an antler. Since this is not his normal vet, I decided to not tell them how old he was. I told them that I was unsure of his age and for them to let me know how old they thought he was. The vet who looked at him said that he looked to be around 1-2 years old. Her final guess was 18 months to 3 years old. Lets just say, I was one proud pet parent! She guessed his age at no more then 3 years old, that’s 5 years younger then what he is!!! I was very excited.

My black dog is named Sable. I got Sable when she was 5 weeks old because the person who had her was tired of puppies (I know right, who can be tired of puppies!?!). Sable turns 5 on September 9 of this year (2015). Sable is spayed as well and is in excellent condition. She has never had health problems and only sees a vet to receive her shots. The last two dogs (the Chihuahua and the Leonberger mix) are currently my foster dogs. Anytime I have fosters, I always opt out of receiving the food the rescue is donated so that they can be on a healthy, steady diet with Canidae. I would love, Love, LOVE to help get the word out about Canidae. You guys are amazing and I thank you for the health of my animals every day!!!

Thank you again,

Cortney A.

Plus, it’s made in ‘merica… of course its the best!

IMG_0659Having done a lot of dog foods research, checkin out ingredients, having dog taste tests and reviewing quality assurance we confidently chose Canidae for our dog “Truff”. From the Large Puppy Blend dry food to the Life Stages Lamb and Rice dry he loves it all. Recently adding Life Stages Chicken, Lamb and Fish canned in the morning for a more well rounded diet, this Greater Swiss Mountain pup scarfs it down and has good energy and no health or diet issues at all. Canidae seems to be available at most pet stores and just about anywhere online, so keeping it stock is easy.

Plus, it’s made in ‘merica… of course its the best!

It wasn’t until I found Canidae Grain Free Pure that I was fully satisfied and comfortable with making it the food choice for my dogs.

May 12, 2015

kaseyI fully understand the importance that diet plays in the lives of pets. Before adopting my two dogs,  I did extensive research on dog food, determined to find the best for them. This included hours of reading through ingredients, unbiased reviews, and consumer reviews. Many times I would like the reviews I read but quickly turned away from a brand after I read the ingredients; and vice versa. It wasn’t until I found Canidae Grain Free Pure that I was fully satisfied and comfortable with making it the food choice for my dogs.


Thank you so much for your dedication to providing a quality dog food that they truly enjoy!!
