High Meat Diet

We created our CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE AncestralTMformulas because dogs thrive on a diet high in animal protein, just like their canine ancestors. Our Avian Puppy Formula is made with an abundance of regionally sourced avian species, including deboned quail, chicken, turkey, and duck. In fact, each 20 pound package is made with as much as 15 pounds of meat ingredients! We make each formula with a variety of ranch-raised, farm-raised, or wild-caught ingredients for high animal protein and the powerful nutrition your dog needs. Then we raw coat our kibble with freeze-dried meats for the amazing taste your dog craves. We also use locally sourced vegetables, legumes, and herbs. Choose from our fish or red meat adult formulas, or adult and puppy avian formulas.

For puppies under 6 months and pregnant or nursing females, we recommend free choice feeding. Grain free diets may not be suitable for all dogs. If you have any dietary concerns, please consult with your veterinarian.

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.

When changing to CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE AncestralTM Puppy Formula, 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.

CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE AncestralTM Puppy Formula is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for growth and gestation/lactation including growth of large size dogs (70 lb. or more as an adult).
