Simple Recipes for Sensitive Puppies

CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE Foundations® Puppy Dry Formula with Fresh Chicken uses simple recipes for sensitive dogs. Choosing a grain free limited ingredient diet may help dogs who experience food sensitivities. Less ingredients could mean less chance of sensitive reactions. This limited ingredient recipe is made with 9 key ingredients that are easily recognizable, plus all the vitamins and minerals your dog needs.

And even if your dog isn’t ingredient sensitive, he’ll still love the great taste. Choose from a variety of formulas made with fresh meat or fish first, paired with whole ingredients like sweet potatoes, peas, lentils, or chickpeas—never corn, wheat or soy. Feed your dog all the great taste he craves and all the nutrition he needs.

Clark is finally his bouncy puppy self

nolanAs a young bouncy happy puppy our 3 month old Sheepadoodle, Clark, suddenly developed intestinal problems. After numerous vet visits and treatments of different foods and medicine, the issue always would seem to return. Not until Clark tried CANIDAE Grain Free Puppy for the first time was his issue under control and he is back to his regular business. Clark is finally his bouncy puppy self and can’t jump up and down enough as we fill his bowl with CANIDAE . We highly recommend this Grain Free product to anyone with a puppy that has a sensitive stomach issue.

Thank you for all your help Beth,

Nolan & Geena N.

Love this food for them, and will recommend it to anyone

We have two dogs, one female, one male. When we adopted them, we no idea grain free vs. grain dog food did any unhealthy damage to our dogs.

We have two dogs, one female, one male. When we adopted them, we no idea grain free vs. grain dog food did any unhealthy damage to our dogs. Our female, Molly began having many health issues soon after getting her. After multiple trips the local vet, we took a trip to Petco to see what our options were there. One of the sales women working informed us on grain free dog food. After doing a few trial runs with Canidae Grain Free Puppy Formula, we loved it and most importantly, Molly agreed with the food and loved it! For months at a time, my husband would be gone due to military field training/deployments, Molly would not eat and became very anxious. But, thank you Canidae! Caitlyn-2Once she was introduced to the treats and dry food for every meal, she has now gained 7 pounds, eats a normal schedule, and more! Our male dog, Riley, loves the food as well with no irritations. They are now a year and a half old, and we have stuck with your products as long as we have had them (one year three months), they’re coats and shiny and healthy! Love this food for them, and will recommend it to anyone! Prices are a bit too much, but we budget for their health, and we understand, we get what we all pay for!

Thank you!

For pregnant or nursing females, we recommend free choice feeding.

The Daily Feeding Guidelines are a good starting point on the amount of food suggested to be fed on a daily basis. If you feed more than once per day, simply divide the Daily Feeding Guidelines by the number of times fed per day. Always provide plenty of fresh water.

When changing to CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE  Foundations, some puppies may do better by making a gradual transition over 7-10 days. Start with 25% of the new food mixed with 75% of the previous diet and gradually increase the new while decreasing the previous until the transition is complete.

Store in a cool, dry place. Not for human consumption.
