Rated 5 out of 5 by Missiesmomma Hides pills, good for a little treat
I feed my dogs only dry food. I adopted an obese 4-5yr old shepherd-sharpei mix with already tartered teeth and other health issues. Low thyroid for one. Since she had an abscess, I put her on antibiotics for the infection plus thyroid meds. I needed something to hide the medication in that she would eat easily and would not add to her weight issues. I only feed ONE TABLESPOON of wet food for that purpose. The rest of her food is in dry kibble. This cleans her teeth. In fact she has not had teeth issues since and she passed on last week at age 13 with pretty teeth and no bad breath. Plus she dropped weight from 125# down to 90# which is where she needed to be. Mags was under vet care and supervised diet. Her dry kibble was Canidae senior weight management...the dry equivalent to this canned version.

Rated 1 out of 5 by HelenaHanbasket Psyllium husk is A LAXATIVE No wonder my dog pooped like mad (Indoors!) on this food!!!
It took me a bit to check into this and read the ingredients once more, SLOWLY. This has psyllium husk in it and in my research, Psyllium husk is A LAXATIVE! I blamed the dry we switched to- It was THIS STUFF and I only mix a few TABLESPOONS of wet in with broth to make a gravy to mix in with the dry to soften it. My dog has never ever ever ever ever pooped in the house EVER. NOT FREAKING EVER. She has pooped in the house twice a day for the last week because one week ago I started her on this food. She can't hold it. It's not runny, it's solid, but she cannot wait for me to take her out and we do not have a doggie door anymore because we moved. None the less, she has held it for as long as she's needed to hold it until we started her on this food. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS FOOD unless your dog is on painkillers or something and is frequently constipated. You've been warned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Suzi42 An excellent canned food
I was reluctant to feed my dog canned food, but she was getting up there in years (14yr old Sibe) and would stop eating every time she became distressed. Whether it was due to a new move (we are military and move frequently) thunder storm or shelling from the range or even just any change in her home. She lost over 10 lbs in the last move and could not get the weight back on her. Finally, i gave in and put her on canned food. She only gets 1/4 can twice a day mixed with her dry and she gained all the weight back. Now she may still not eat during a thunderstorm, but now she at least does not not eat for the 2 or three days afterwards she had before. I did my research on this food dry and canned before i gave it to my dogs (4 all over 50 lbs) and the reason i liked it was that this food uses real meat and no fillers. The canned food is not a bunch of gravy with chunks of meat in it, no, it is packed full of food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doby47 Dogs and cats love it
Wow. My dogs love this. But they've everything. My cats are stealing it though. That's good since they need to lose weight and dog food is less caloric anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Janie57 Kidney Failure
My dog Mattie, 16 years old, is in the early stages of kidney failure. Her vet recommended prescription kidney/renal food. But she refused to eat it and started losing weight. Tried other foods he recommended. She would eat it for a couple of days and then turn her nose up it. A friend, who has had dogs with kidney failure recommended this food. She ate it for awhile then stopped. But now that she is stable, she is eating this food again and gained some of her weight back. YAY! She's doing great on this food. Although this food is not intended to be for dogs with kidney failure, it is sure has been great for my Mattie.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Doxykeeper Canidae canned
This is for a dog that has very few teeth. I have to add warm water to soften it after it's been refrigerated. Nothing wrong with the food. She eats it but I will get something a little moister next time.
