Thank you so much for your great cat food.

I have 6 cats and they each seem to have a different dietary problem. They’ve suffered for years with different foods that almost keep all my kitties tummies okay. We switched to Canidae Pure Sea crunchies and within a couple of weeks the amount of throwup around my house has decreased to a level I have never experienced before. Maybe 1 cat throws up once every 3 days! It’s remarkable.
Thank you so much for your great cat food.

Lily is a changed cat
Sept 12, 2017
A few years ago, our cat Lily (aged 6 or so at the time) developed a bad case of miliary dermatitis. Her constant itching, scratching and biting left her hips tail and chin areas raw, scabbed, and almost hairless. The only treatment that worked was a Depo shot(steroids) every few months to control the dermatitis. Since she did not have fleas our vet suggested that she was allergic to some environmental substance; her food, a cleaning product, something outside (Lily is indoor-outdoor). We tried changing her food, tried bathing her with Histacalm shampoo, use fragrance-free detergent for our clothes- nothing worked. With too many things to test or eliminate we just relied on the shots, but didn’t feel good about that at all. Then in early in 2017, I checked Petco’s selection of cat food thinking of changing her food again and saw Canidae’s Limited Ingredient cat food. I immediately bought a bag and began switching her off her old food. It is now September 2017, and Lily is a changed cat. No more dermatitis, no more biting scratching and twitching even in her sleep, and NO MORE DEPO! Her coat is gorgeous, smooth and shiny, her skin is healthy and she is calm for the first time in years. We are totally sold on this cat food and Lily will be eating it for the rest of her life. Thank you thank you Canidae!
Spark Plug doing great on Under the Sun
June 19, 2017
I just introduced our resident feline, Spark Plug (Who hitched a ride under my truck engine when he was a tiny, 15-ounce baby kitty, hence the name…), to your Under the Sun Grain-Free Indoor Formula. He grew up on Felidae, then transitioned to Canidae Cat formulas, and is now, at age 15 and weighing in at almost 15 pounds, doing really great on the newest product. I can attach a couple of pictures of Sparky for you, too. One with his canine friend.
A thousand thanks! Best of the rest of the day!
We now have food she loves!
May 24, 2016
I’m writing to thank you and everyone at Canidae for the wonderful customer service you have provided. Thanks to you, my rescue foster cat, Topanga, now has a dry food that she loves. You took an inquiry about some wet food that she didn’t like and turned it into an opportunity. If you hadn’t gone out of your way to generously send me some food samples I would have never discovered how much she loves the Pure Stream Trout food because I didn’t know it existed.
And thanks to your detective work to find out where I could buy it and the coupons you sent Topanga now has a big bag of it. No more stressing about what she’s going to eat or where I’m going to find it. I attached a photo of her eating the food. It was impossible to get her to stop eating long enough to look up so I attached another photo of her so you can see how sweet and content she is.
Thank you all for going above and beyond.

What a difference it made!
May 17, 2017
Hello to Canidae,
My cat Spirit Monet was a feral rescue who found me at a shelter 15 months ago. When I brought her home she had major gastrointestinal issues. I decided to visit the local independent pet goods store. The wonderful people at PT Pet Supply in Webster, MA introduced me to your Life Stages Chicken Meal & Rice Formula. What a difference it made with Spirit’s tummy issues! We have been dedicated customers since!
Spirit Monet & her food provider, Stephanie
This cat food does not “stink”
April 25, 2017
Canidae is the only canned cat food that my cat will eat when immediately opened and served from the can. All other canned foods I have used had to “air out” a good 20 minutes before my cat would eat it. That tells me something! Smell is SO IMPORTANT and I appreciate very much that this cat food does not “stink” and my cat does not try to cover it up when she sniffs it. Also the quality of ingredients gives me peace of mind since I am the choosing what my cat eats. Thanks!
They loved 2 Canidae varieties
January 31, 2017
I have two kittens and received cat food coupons. I saved the labels of all the cans and wrote whether or not they liked the food. Both kittens did like various wet foods and some they did not like. After trying many types from many brands, especially many grain free kinds, they loved two the most which happen to both be Canidae varieties: 1) Canidae Grain Free Pure Elements-Chicken, Turkey & Lamb Formula and 2) Under the Sun Grain Free – Seafood Formula. Also, they had to take a few liquid medicines and I found the Canidae Grain Free Pure Elements-Chicken, Turkey & Lamb Formula was the only one I could hide all the medicines in and they still enjoyed it.
I am so grateful to Canidae for providing this high quality non poultry-based food.

My cat was having frequent bouts of vomiting, and food sensitivities proved to be the culprit. Teddy was reacting primarily to chicken and turkey, which is the predominant protein source in most cat foods. The vet gave me a list of recommended high quality cat foods to try, but Teddy didn’t like any of them. We finally tried Canidae’s Grain Free PURE Stream (Trout) dried food, and he loved it! The vomiting issue has been dramatically reduced, Teddy’s nose doesn’t run anymore and his coat looks fantastic. I am so grateful to Canidae for providing this high quality non poultry-based food. Thank you!
Our dog and cat both love Canidae Pure Lamb food
June 7, 2016
He’s not the only one though, our domestic shorthair cat, Blue also loves the lamb dog food he actually prefers it to his cat food which unfortunately is not Canidae, he’s tried it, and prefers going back to the corn based junk food “meow” brand, however, lately, given a choice between Meow and Canidae Pure Lamb, he goes to the Canidae, perhaps it’s time to try the Pure for cats again….
The biggest problem with feeding Blue outside (he’s an indoor/outdoor cat, a barn and house cat) is that he is not the only animal that loves the lamb dog food, blue has to compete against my small flock of backyard free range chickens, the instant the chickens here the Canidae food hit the bowl they race over from the barn, and immediately crowd Blue out, Yes you read that right, Blue actually gets run off his food by a flock of chickens, He’s not the bravest cat but he still very affectionate cat, he actually acts more like a dog but a cat, and no that’s not after I fed him the dog food he’s always been that way.
So in addition to dogs, Canidae dog food is also loved by our house cat and a flock of free range chickens , Perhaps you should consider making poultry feed with the same high standards that you make for your dog and cat food I know my chickens would absolutely love it.
I have noticed an extreme improvement in my animals.
May 4, 2016
I just want to say that I LOVE Canidae! I am an employee at Petco and I decided to try the food because I get a decent discount, I went from Pedigree and Purina, 2 cats and 1 dog, to Canidae grain free, and I have noticed an extreme improvement in my animals. Their coats are so soft and shiny, they have energy and they are so healthy, even my vet was impressed with their health!
I will continue to buy the food no matter what, the price is great the product is awesome! I have been and will continue to recommend all customers at Petco to the Canidae food brands! So thanks to you my babies are healthy and happy!
Needless to say, he LOVED it!!!
April 21, 2016
I have heard of your brand for a while now but I have a very picky senior kitty and every time I buy new things he usually doesn’t approve. Recently I was in Petco and your canned food caught my eye, the chicken turkey lamb in broth formula. My senior kitty has several health problems and even though he’s picky I try to find quality food that will be good for him (he gets a tube feeding twice a day so I want to supplement with nutritious wet food because he is on the skinny side), I went ahead and got a can to try, I figured if he doesn’t like it one of the other cats will eat it. Needless to say, he LOVED it!!!
I was so happy because he very rarely gets excited about food this way so it made me so happy to see him eating something with such appetite, especially with the quality ingredients in it and no grains. I will be stocking up on this food now and will try some other flavors as well and perhaps test out the dry food as well because he munches on that throughout the day too. Thank you so much for providing such great pet food!
