She has all but stopped shedding altogether!

2012-07-2807/28/12 - Wow, what a difference! I am absolutely sold on your CANIDAE pureELEMENTS. I have a 3 1/2 year old Boston Terrier, Skyy, that I started on your food about 3 weeks ago, and already I notice a huge difference. Her coat is so shiny and she has fewer and fewer issues with her tummy.

But the best thing I have noticed is that she has all but stopped shedding altogether! This is a wonderful thing in my household as my boyfriend has allergies. I cannot thank you enough for developing this wonderful product.

Update on CANIDAE Sponsored Great Dane Rescue, Bella

2012-07-18a07/18/12 - Our very own sales manager Caroline Pettersen submitted this testimonial. She arrived at Feed All Pets in Stratford, Ontario and had a special guest, named Bella, waiting there for her. Bella was rescued and taken in by the Perth/Stratford County Humane Society and was quickly placed in foster care. The staff at Feed All Pet Centre quickly called Caroline to ask if she would sponsor to feed Bella, and of course, she said YES. Bella arrived in their care at the end of April, she was severely underweight, weighing in at only 95lbs. Today, after eating CANIDAE All Life Stages formula at 10 cups a day, she weighs 120lbs, with a goal of 150lbs+. 

Bella also suffered from a SEVERE bed sore on her left hip bone which is now almost unnoticeable. She is under good veterinary care and they are very pleased with her progress. 2012-07-18bHer coat is definitely improving.

What a nice surprise for Caroline, going to a great store to give a seminar and being greeted with a CANIDAE fed Great Dane Rescue. Lastly, Caroline just wanted to add that Bella is HUGE, quite probably one of the tallest female Great Danes she has ever seen. At only 95lbs, her situation was very grave indeed and now she is well on her way to recovering.

On CANIDAE he stopped having intestinal issues

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA07/02/12 - We trust CANIDAE to provide our dogs with the proper balance of nutrition day in and day out. We believe quality dog food is the first step in preventative health issues, and thank CANIDAE for making it so easy to keep them healthy and happy.

When we adopted Watson, a terrier mix, from a second chance shelter he was severely underweight. We were warned that he had a sensitive stomach and they had a hard time finding a food he could keep down much less thrive on. Once we put him on CANIDAE he stopped having intestinal issues and started gaining weight. Look at him now!

I can’t say enough about your food

2012-06-2806/28/12 - This is my CANIDAE-loving Chihuahua/Corgi mix! She is approx. 8 years old (no one knows exactly, even the vets are stumped) and I found her roaming the streets near the local pound. She’s not the prettiest dog, so I knew she didn’t have much of a chance if they found her. She was heartworm positive, has severe luxating patellas, and had a b-b bullet stuck in her arm, which meant she’d been shot at some point in her life. The only command she knew was “go away.” A few months of love and good food worked wonders, and thanks to the high levels of glucosamine and chondroitin in your Platinum formula, she rarely limps anymore!! (the luxating patellas make her knees pop and lock, if that makes sense). I can’t say enough about your food. It is seriously the best thing that’s ever happened to my girl! Look at that smile. She’s a happy girl :)

Our godsend was your Lamb & Rice dog food

2012-06-1806/18/12 - In January of 2008, our beagle, Roo, had her first seizure. At first we were unsure of what was happening–my mom thought maybe it was a stroke. We immediately took Roo to the vet, where we were somewhat relieved to find out it was a seizure. However, the following months brought more seizures–becoming more frequent in occurrence. Although our vet reassured us that seizures were generally harder on the owners than the dog itself, which provided my sister and I no comfort. I can’t even explain how hard it was on us. We couldn’t stand seeing our dog go through something like that. We would end up bawling every time. After talking with the vet, we found out that it may be poultry-related. Therefore, we worked to cut ALL poultry out of Roo’s diet. This meant finding a dog food with NO poultry products. We searched and searched, trying to find one. Our godsend was your Lamb & Rice dog food. This is the ONLY dog food we could find with absolutely NO poultry. Since Roo has been eating CANIDAE dog food (for about 3 years), she has had no seizures (knock on wood!). Our family is extremely grateful to CANIDAE for providing a dog food for dogs that need a no-poultry option. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!

No more food allergies!

2012-06-0806/08/12 - I’ve been feeding my dogs your product for almost a year now and it’s literally the only food that helps them keep their weight up. I have 4 American pitbull terriers, and they have very sensitive stomachs. Nearly all brands give them itchy coats, runny stool and all that bad stuff. I looked and looked and finally found your dog food and they all love it, no more food allergies or anything. I just wanted to say thank you for that!

In just a few days, the itching has calmed down

2012-05-155/15/12 - Thank you for a great food product in the Lamb and Rice. We had to change recently from a different brand, and purchased something to replace it. A terrible mistake, the itching returned in all of our dogs! I had to locate another high quality Lamb and Rice food. I found yours at a local feed store, and thought I would give it a try. I purchased a bag and some of the canned food. 

Coincidentally, my husband’s friend had suggested your product to him, earlier that same day. I fed our dogs the new food, without mixing the other food into it, because of the itching, and they loved it. In fact, I have a female GSD that we always had to coax to finish her food, she just gobbled it up, and cleaned her bowl. The first bowl and each bowl since. That is so wonderful, not to worry about her. And in just a few days, the itching has calmed down on the rest of the dogs. So thanks,

CANIDAE has transformed skinny, picky puppies to robust, nourished and thriving athletes!

2012-04-164/15/12 - We love our boxers like family. Tuckerman came to us from a breeder in March 2005. He was very thin naturally, and was a picky eater. Getting him to eat on a regular schedule and put on some needed weight was a challenge. We searched in vain for a food that both met our expectations for nutrition and quality ingredients, and that Tuck would enjoy. We found that food in CANIDAE ALS. About 8 months later we rescued Layla, who was also quite thin. Her previous owners advised us that she was not a big eater and was also picky. A bag of the food they were feeding her came with her. No wonder she wasn’t a big eater – a cursory glance at the ingredient list and quick sniff test, and that junk food was trashed. She went on CANIDAE immediately and it turns out Miss Layla is a total foodie! In fact, it was a challenge to keep her from stealing Tuck’s breakfast and dinner daily. That was 3 years ago, and to this day they both finish their meals in record time and are always looking for more. Moreover, both dogs are at ideal weights for their breed, have beautiful coats, sparkly eyes, and bright white teeth. CANIDAE has transformed skinny, picky puppies to robust, nourished and thriving athletes. Thank you CANIDAE!

What was amazing was the difference in her coat. It is all shiny and healthy now!

Peggy_G4/6/12 - I became frustrated trying to find Millie, my 3 yr. old Schnauzer, a dog food she liked. I tried other premium brands, and then regular commercial brands. Millie would stop eating/liking them halfway through the bag. CANIDAE offers a money-back guarantee, so with nothing to lose I gave it a try. Millie LOVES it! And what was amazing was the difference in her coat. It is all shiny and healthy now in just a couple of weeks! Thanks again… and Millie says “thank you” too.

They don’t have “doggie odor” anymore

Tiffany-H3/29/12 - I just read an article on the harmful effects of soy in animal feed. It never even crossed my mind before. I was very glad to see that you don’t use it in your products! I feed my French Bulldogs CANIDAE pureSky and my Devon Rex FELIDAE pureElements. I switched about two months ago from [another brand]. I used to be happy with their food, but it seems like they may have changed something in it and it no longer agreed with my Frenchie’s sensitive stomachs. Since feeding them CANIDAE, their gas has been drastically reduced, their fur even shinier, and they don’t have “doggie odor” anymore even without a bath!!! Thank you so much for the excellent food and also the coupons :)

I will never give her anything but CANIDAE

Jim-K3/19/12 - Ever since Toby my 4 year old Basenji was a puppy I have fed her CANIDAE. Her coat has always been shiny, her energy has always been high, and her health has always been great. I made the mistake of trying another brand but found it to be $20 more expensive and she started to have issues with her coat. I will never give her anything but CANIDAE for the rest of her life; it’s not worth her health or happiness. CANIDAE might cost a little more than other brands out there but when it comes to your dog’s health and happiness, you’ll find it to be worth it. Thanks CANIDAE for doing what you do best…creating happy and healthy pet households.

Novie’s coat is so soft and shiny and Buddy has more energy!

Kena3/15/12 - Thank you CANIDAE for your ALS Formula!! I have a 6 month Rottweiler named Novie and a 3 year old Maltese X named Buddy, and I got tired of buying two different bags of food for these two. After I found out about you I did research and decided to buy a small bag to try. 

They LOVED it!! So I bought your 44lb bag and am so pleased with the results! Novie’s coat is so soft and shiny and Buddy has more energy! I feel so much better buying one big bag instead of one big and one small bag. Thank you!! You guys rock!
