Questions & Answers

21 Customer Questions

Are any of the ingredients sourced from outside the United States?
Answer by ChewyJun 30, 2019
Canidae uses ingredients from the US and quality ingredients from around the world. From fresh bison like those found on the grasslands of Wyoming, fresh lamb from places like Colorado, fresh salmon and trout from the Pacific Northwest, to fresh produce from all across the Heartland, and other quality ingredients from around the world. They also source ingredients such as duck meal from France and lamb meal from New Zealand.

What is lamb meal
Answer by ChewyOct 19, 2017
Meal is made by grinding the protein after it has been rendered (cooked in a stew-like way but at high temperatures) and then dried so it'll contain a higher protein content and low moisture which helps provide the pet with the most nutritional value on the food.

Does the lamb/rice Life Stages have chicken in it?
Answer by ChewyFeb 09, 2019
According to the nutritional information provided, this product does not contain any chicken ingredients.

I just heard that taurine is important for dogs heart health. Is there taurine in this product?
Answer by ChewyAug 14, 2018
The Life Stages Lamb & Rice has naturally occurring Taurine levels of 0.02%

My dogs do Not like

My dogs Always eat all their food. They are both leaving food, even with the special topping they get. It is mixed w prior food to transition-they are picking through it.

Switched from wellness

I switched from wellness to this & all 3 of my babies LOVE it. I have a tiny dog too & she needs small pcs. Wellness has big triangle pcs that awkward for her to eat. Canidae is just a few $ cheaper, but not much. I started then last night & no runny poo poos this morning. Very Nice ❤️ MY autoship delivery was a whole day early... I LOVE CHEWY

My dog has enjoyed Canidae canned food in the past and I bought this formula to transition off of a lower-quality lamb kibble. As a heads up, this is NOT WORTH IT. As soon as I started mixing in this bag, he began to not eat all of his food, which I first assumed was maybe just stress or an upset stomach. Once we fully transitioned he did not eat for three days unless I doused it in wet food and cheese. He lost weight and was literally spitting out the pieces, which he has NEVER done before (he will literally eat trash).

Dogs like it

Switched to this when we got our new puppy. Our 3 y/o border collie is sensitive and was on proplan lamb and rice. When we got our new puppy they just wanted to eat each others food, which caused our boy to go from 48 to 55 lbs. I wanted a lamb based all life stages food I could feed both dogs. They love it. A lot of people complain about the 'powder' in the bags. I haven't noticed anything excessive and i add water to their food so they don't seem to notice and gobble it up.

skin issues

My dog got hot spots on her head (dermatitis). My other dog had continuously gotten rashes. After lots and lots of ruling out. It seems to be the food. Both dogs are labs. One review mentioned food is crumbles. It definitely has lots of crumbs.

Puppy-Adult All Stages Dog Food

I’ve been using this brand for my last 3 dogs! New puppy and senior dog all eat the same food!!! My dog loves his kibble. All 3 dogs, including puppy use the same food. No worries about changing food from puppy-adult-senior. Just change the amount you give them. I do auto ship and save money. Be sure to check auto ship reminders or you might get your delivery before you actually need it! I love CHEWY!
