Dog Food Reviews
It is so nice to have found a dog food I can trust
5/19/2011 - I just wanted to thank you for making such a great product! I have my Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu mix puppy, Alexi, on your Lamb and Rice formula (I want to keep her away from wheat, soy, and corn), and I couldn’t be happier. She seemed to get ill frequently on [another brand of] puppy formula her breeder started her on, and now that she is completely transitioned, she couldn’t be happier! I even tried a 1 pound sample bag of [another brand of] Lamb and Rice formula, and Alexi threw it up.
It is so nice to have found a dog food I can trust. I buy both the dry and the wet Lamb and Rice formulas, and I’m encouraging other dog owners to switch their foods. Even other holistic brands don’t necessarily keep their formulas free of wheat, and I so appreciate finding a great premium food that is within my budget.
My parent’s dogs are on a prescription formula, and I keep trying to get my Mom to switch her babies off of that expensive junk food and onto your senior brand. I guess you can’t convert everyone…. On the other hand, I recently got a friend with a cat to switch to FELIDAE, as her cat is on chemotherapy and needed a premium food, and they said they saw their cat perk up a bit after starting the food.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for making a great product that isn’t making my baby sick!

Both dogs eat CANIDAE and look fantastic
5/26/2011 - Nacho (German Shepherd mix, about 3 years old) was abandoned and showed up at my husband’s business in Southern California. He was skin and bones, and had been on the streets for quite a while. He stayed in Southern California for a couple of months before we got him home to Northern California. He has been with us a year and a half now. I also have Saffy, my beloved 11 year old Lab mix. Both dogs eat CANIDAE and look fantastic.
I like that I can feed both dogs the same food and both are at a healthy weight. They also love the Snap Biscuit treats!
I also have two cats (Abby, older female from animal shelter, and Leroy, younger male that someone dumped off in the field near our home). They both eat FELIDAE.
In addition, I raise pure bred chickens and I supplement their feed with FELIDAE. Many people ask me what I feed my birds because they look so good. They are large breeds of chicken and benefit from the animal protein in FELIDAE.
Here are some of the chickens that get FELIDAE treats. These are called Buff Orpingtons.
He loves it and we love CANIDAE
5/30/2011 - I have a 5 year old Golden Retriever who had chronic ear infections, dry flaky coat, and anal problems. After 6 months of vet visits, my doctor finally said to take him (Cashie) off of the food I was feeding him, all treats, grains, chicken and lamb kibble. So we started him on CANIDAE Grain Free Salmon [now named CANIDAE Grain Free pureSEA™], then every other month switched him to another flavor of your grain free formulas. After about another 6 months, I noticed his ears were clearing, his coat was shiny and flake free, and he stopped his “scooting.”
No more monthly visits to the vet.
We have had him on your grain free product for over two years now, and he is completely clear of all allergies, ear and anal problems. He is also far more fluent in his running. He was just about immobilized with arthritis in his back knees. He always smells like a fresh clean dog, even between quarterly trips to the groomer. I can’t help but feel this is due to the purity of your product. Yes, he gets some treats, but mostly apples and fresh carrots.
I recommend your product to anyone who wants to have a happy, healthy, active, clear eyed dog. And he just inhales the food! He loves it and we love CANIDAE. Thank you to you and your team of animal nutritionists who obviously care about the animals they are feeding across the world.
PS: I have attached my favorite photo of my handsome guy doing what he loves best… tunneling in freshly fallen snow!

Thank you for your wonderful product
5/31/2011 - We have two beautiful Golden Retriever brothers, Chevy and Hemi, that are seven years old. They have been fed CANIDAE All Life Stages since we brought them home at 9 weeks old. They thrive and do not have issues that other owners have had. They love their food and usually try convice us we didn’t give them enough. We have a new Australian Shepherd, Cody, that is doing wonderfully on CANIDAE also. His coat just shines. He loves his CANIDAE food. Thank you for your wonderful product.
CANIDAE saved my dog’s life
6/20/2011 - I have a maltipoo named Princess. She is still new to the family (2 months since she was rescued from a kill shelter). I tried all different kinds of food and she would not eat anything, and got very sick.
Ever since I tried CANIDAE All Life Stages, she devours her food and is a healthy 12 lb dog. I feel that CANIDAE saved my dog’s life.
She gets along great with the family and loves to cuddle with her mommy (me). She also loves to watch other dogs on TV.
They love the food and scarf every last bite!
7/5/2011 - We have 3 Yellow Labrador Retrievers: Rusty 9, Lola 7 and Casey 5. Although everyone mistakes them for triplets, they’ve all been adopted from different local shelters. We are celebrities in our neighborhood because of their looks, and we simply cannot go anywhere in public without getting attention (which they love!!).
We switched to CANIDAE All Life Stages a couple of years ago from another dog food and loved the change. We’ve done a ton of research on dog food and we love the healthy ingredients your food provides our dogs (without breaking the bank!). Our older lab Rusty gained a bit of weight over the last couple of years, so about 8 months ago we switched all 3 of our dogs over to the CANIDAE PLATINUM. Over the course of a few months he lost 15 pounds and has been maintaining a healthy weight ever since. They love the food and scarf every last bite!
Thanks for making such a healthy product that we feel good about feeding!

We get a lot of compliments on their shiny fur
7/27/2011 - My two boys (Raven- 3 year old Lab, and Shadow- 1 year old rescue Lab mix) love your food. Raven is highly allergic to grains and poultry but does really well on your CANIDAE Grain Free pureSEA.
I’m attaching a picture of my two boys to say thank you for caring about the well being of our family members. We do get a lot of compliments on their shiny fur. People always ask me what I use to make their fur so shiny and I don’t use anything, just watch what they eat. Raven had a terrible time with his dog food at first until we figured out that chicken and grains triggered his allergies (ear infections, dandruff, itchy skin, diarrhea, vomiting, etc.).
I had him on several other holistic and grain free foods, but they also caused problems. Then I tried the CANIDAE and he has been doing wonderfully on that. When I took Shadow in last year, I started him on CANIDAE too. They are both very happy pups. Thank you for making a food that can be trusted.
You have a satisfied customer for life
8/2/2011 - Thank you so much for producing such a great product for our beloved four-legged family members. My husband and I have four babies… actually quite the crowd. We own two Great Danes (Athena and Zeus) who are one year old and eight months old. As you can imagine, they can be quite entertaining. I want to tell you about our struggles with our female Great Dane. Athena can be considered the definition of a “finicky eater.” When she was a puppy, we tried at least 10 different brands of food, and could not find anything she would eat. She was underweight and had dry flaking skin due to poor nutrition.
My husband and I found CANIDAE All Life Stages Four Meat dog food at a local pet store, and tried it. We had tried everything else at this point; we were willing to do anything. Surprisingly enough, as soon as we poured the food in her bowl, she started eating and ate her ENTIRE bowl! This was a first for her! Not only do our dogs love this food, it is affordable and has great quality ingredients. You can only expect the best from CANIDAE. Our dogs love the taste of chicken, turkey, lamb, and fish; but they get the benefit of vitamins and minerals for superior health and coats. And better yet… NO FILLERS! It is hard to find an affordable dog food without corn being in the top ingredients!
Recently we found out that the pet store we purchase CANIDAE from is going to quit carrying your product because they are switching store names. All of their CANIDAE customers have already informed them they will be losing a lot of business. I know they will be losing my business, because I will do whatever it takes to make sure my babies only get the best! It may mean we will have to drive a little further, but that is okay by me. With two growing Great Danes, we go through 140 pounds of dog food in a month, so it is best we buy in bulk anyway!!
Again, thank you for such a great quality dog food! You have a satisfied customer for life. Our dogs are not just pets to us; they are loved members of our family. And for that reason, I am thankful to have found CANIDAE dog food!
Very impressed with the ingredients
8/8/2011 - I feed my 2-year-old male German Shepherd CANIDAE dog food (All Life Stages). I love it, and he loves it. I have been very impressed with the ingredients in the dog food, and I did my research in deciding what to feed my dog. We get lots of comments about his coat, in particular, and I think his coat looks great in part because of the CANIDAE food that we feed him. I want to thank you for producing a great quality dog food at a reasonable price.
Within days, the itching stopped
8/9/2011 - My dog was suffering from severe itching. It finally dawned on me that he was allergic to his food, mainly because it contained grains. I switched to CANIDAE because it contains so much meat protein.
In the past, I had to add stuff to the dog food to get him to eat it. As soon as I put the CANIDAE down, he began to eat. Within days, the itching stopped. I’ve tried the bison and the chicken.
I think he prefers the one with chicken in it. Thanks for producing a dog food that is actually good for him and is not full of fillers, corn, wheat and other ingredients that he doesn’t need.
She has such a shiny and soft coat
8/10/2011 - I am SO IMPRESSED with the CANIDAE dog food that I talk almost every day to someone about it. I have a Boxer that I have fed this since 9 weeks old. She is 11 months now and has such a shiny & soft coat, her eyes are bright and she’s super happy all of the time. You can tell that she is getting more than the right vitamins and minerals from CANIDAE!!
She’s 52 pounds and I feed her 3 cups of All Life Stages. 1 cup in morning, 1 cup at noon and 1 cup with a tablespoon of CANIDAE can at night. Great Food!!!
I have decided to switch to CANIDAE for my working dogs
8/12/2011 - I’m an executive board member with the United States Police Canine Association (USPCA), Region 19 and a professional police dog trainer, working in Birmingham, Michigan, USA. I train police dogs and I also train the general public with private dog training obedience lessons. I have two narcotic detection trained dogs.
After seeing a CANIDAE presentation in Canada at one of our USPCA police K9 events I have decided to switch to CANIDAE for my working dogs.
The dogs have enjoyed the change as their coats look nicer and they digest the food without any problems. They also seem to have more energy between feedings.
My German Shepherd was having allergies/irritation on the tips of her ears and that has now gone away too. I’m not sure if it was the change to CANIDAE that helped her ears or not but I strongly believe it did.
