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

The Daily Feeding Guidelines are a good starting point on the amount of food to be fed on a daily basis. Individual pets may require more or less food. Always provide plenty of fresh water. Grain free diets may not be suitable for all dogs. If you have any dietary concerns, please consult with your veterinarian.

When changing to CANIDAE® PURE™ puppy food, 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.

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!

– Caitlyn S.
