Dog Food Reviews

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!

Our dogs love your food!!

Timber3/6/12 - First of all, our dogs love your food!! I mix it up every so often; right now they’re on Grain Free Bison, before it was the Beef & Fish. I found it very convenient that with having two dogs, twelve and eight years old, and a six month old puppy, I didn’t have to buy separate food. I just feed them your CANIDAE All Life Stages and believe me, my puppy is happy and healthy and growing like a weed, and my seniors are nice and comfy too.

SuzieQI started using CANIDAE because one of my friends in the rescue organization I work in swears by your food. Prior, I fed my dogs what I called decent food. Now, I really read what’s in their food, it matters. What is a Meat by Product? Or Corn Gluten Meal along with the Dyes? Now I ask everybody, “Would you feed a family member Pot Roast a la Meat by Product?” Since I’ve changed, my oldest has lost her dry skin and shedding problems, they both just seem to be better nourished, no fleas, less waste, less feeding. I refer every adoptee to your food, I tell them that it pays to feed their animal CANIDAE, at the end of day the benefits go a long way. We are living proof!!

Jinny Rocco with her Brindle Bullmastiff Tahsmi Brier

jinnyTahani has been on CANIDAE since 12 weeks of age. When we asked Jinny how Tahani has been doing on CANIDAE, she said great! Jinny loves the consistency of Tahani’s weight. There is no excessive fat or weight, it is just right. Jinny also commented on the beautiful coat CANIDAE has given Tahani. Thank you CANIDAE.

Our Golden Retriever’s Coat Has Only Gotten Better Since Canidae!

Genevieve our Golden Retriever’s coat has improved so much since switching to CANIDAE.The ingredients are excellent and wholesome, and it passes the human taste test as well. FELIDAE canned food also turned out to be an ideal food to force feed our tiny Himalayan Jasmine when she stopped eating, since it is just the right consistency and also highly palatable for hand feeding when all else fails. We’re happy to say she is back to eating on her own.
Thanks very much

Newfoundlands Love It!

cha-moiThe Hills of Cha-Moi Kennels of Alta Loma has been feeding CANIDAE for over one year.Champion Lord Chadrick, 3 years of age, is on the left accompanied by Megan Hill. On the right we have Bacchanal John Cabot, 14 months of age, accompanied by Adrienne Hill. When asked the good points of CANIDAE, the Hill’s replied first of all they loved the kibble size. Most people would think that these big dogs need a big kibble, however that’s not the case. CANIDAE’S medium size kibble works out great for the huge dogs as well as the puppies. Another great factor is they finally found a food their dogs love! Another point was that the coats improved remarkable well, and the big dogs held their proper weight with ease. The proof is in Cabot (right) who has been eating CANIDAE since he was 2 month of age! the Hill’s also said not to forget that their last bitch whelped 12 Newfoundland puppies, and was strictly on CANIDAE throughout her pregnancy. The bitch also recovered very fast with minimal weight loss. The Hill’s last comment was “we are very happy with the food and recommend it to everyone we know.
