Sick of reading reviews? Tired of searching for a decent dog food you can afford? I think you’ve come to the right place!
Canidae are a company I have come to trust. Very rarely do I hear a complaint about the company or their products, which suggests reliability and a good standard of manufacture.
The grain free PURE range is excellent but comes at a premium price, which makes the All Life Stages offering a good option for those on a tighter budget.
If you’re looking for a decent dog food which doesn’t come at such a high price, then this is probably a very good choice.
Canidae All Life Stages review
You’ll find other dog foods on the best rated list with a higher meat content, but for a much higher price. Especially the top freeze or air dried brands, which, although wonderful may break your bank account.
What I like most about Canidae All Life Stages is it’s a practical option for most dog owners. Feeding this as a base diet, or your go to kibble, will help you keep the cost of feeding your dog down, and there’s no reason you can’t feed one of those more expensive foods to boost nutrition. Best of both worlds?
The main ingredients are a combination of different meats (chicken meal, turkey meal, and lamb meal), combined with a selection of rice (brown and white rice) as well as some peas, potato, and oatmeal.
It’s good to have a mix of ingredients, and the protein of 24% is above average. I find 14.5% fat a little low, but combining this with another food (air/freeze dried, BARF patties, meaty bones etc) will sort out that problem.
Canidae only use “human grade ingredients” which is likely the reason consumer feedback has been so good over the years. I can’t think of an Australian dry food which does that, which makes Canidae All Life Stages stand out from the crowd.
Even when we look at the more minor ingredients there’s a lot of good stuff to be said. Flaxseed, ocean fish meal, alfalfa, pre and pro biotics, and preserved naturally with rosemary extract.
For the price, Canidae All Life Stages will be a really good choice for many, which is why I consider it one of the best dog foods available in Australia.
