The Canidae are a reputable company, there’s no question about that. They won’t use any ingredients they don’t determine to be human-grade, and they avoid using fillers in their food.
I’ve found the Canidae PURE range to be excellent for dogs prone to allergies or itchy skin, so before medication give a bag of this a try.
This review is for the grain free PURE Real Bison variety, but the other products in the range are similar.
Bison is the main ingredient, which seems to be a tell-tale sign of a good product. It’s a decent animal protein source, and in this food is backed up with lamb meal which is excellent.
The next six ingredients may feature in significant proportions, and these are a combination of sweet potatoes, peas, lentils, carrots, pork meal, tapioca. It’s good to see a mix, but it’s worth noting we have three meats to five non-meat ingredients.
Sweet potato is a great source of carbohydrates, and preferable to regular (cheaper) potatoes. Peas are a good source of fibre and a nice ingredient to see in a dog food, but will also contribute to the protein in the food.
Canola oil isn’t the best choice of oil. I’d rather see fish or flax oil as a better alternative as they contain more omega-3, but Canola isn’t too bad. Omega fatty acids are required for good health as well as a healthy coat.
Canidae All Life Stages seems to have more meat in the ingredients, but the protein levels in the grain free variety is slightly higher at 25%. That’s good for a food, and suitable for dogs of most ages and breeds.
This food is a great all rounder, with decent meat and carbohydrate content. It’s a food I’ve fed my own dogs and would happily feed again.
