The Canidae company makes good dog food, there’s no doubt about that. They only use ingredients that are “human grade”, and they never put fillers in their food.We find chicken meal, turkey meal, and then lamb meal as the top three ingredients. This is very impressive, especially considering meal is weighed aftercooking when it’s more concentrated. Dog’s are primarily carnivores, so this is definitely what we want to see.
Both brown rice and white rice are included as digestible sources of fibre, and certainly better grain choices than corn and wheat. Peas and potatoes are a great source of carbohydrates, the former also being a source of protein. The other ingredients in this food are solid, catering for all required nutrients and fats, as well as flaxseed for heart health.
This is one of the better varieties from Canidae, and it’s also relatively cheap given the quality of the food.
What’s good about this food….
Very impressive meat meal content, backed up by good grains.
….and what’s not so good.
Rice bran is questionable.
