Canidae PURE Grain Free
Canidae are a brand I have grown to trust, and the PURE “limited ingredient” range is their premium offering.
Let me tell you a secret… I avoid recommending specific brands, but for many years when anyone comes to me for advice on their itchy, allergy-prone dog, I’ve recommended switching to a trial of Canidae PURE. I can’t recall a time it didn’t work. That’s testament to the quality of this product (and testament to how bad other products are).
There are three key ingredients in the Chicken, Lentil, and Pea formula, and they are, surprisingly, Chicken (both wet and meal), Lentils, and Peas! It’s exactly as advertised, which in the pet food industry is far from common.
Despite being limited ingredient it still checks all boxed to be “complete and balanced”. The reason is there’s no fillers or waste products in the food, only what’s essential. Every ingredient has value.
I really can’t fault it.
