Questions & Answers

9 Customer Questions

This would seem to have a lot of carbohydrates, is this a correct assumption?
Answer by ChewyDec 10, 2017
The PURE Sea with Salmon has 35% carbohydrate content.

Do all of the ingredients come from the USA
Answer by ChewySep 03, 2020
Canidae formulas are made in the USA. They use 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.

Is 'Natural Flavors' a type or precursor of MSG?
Answer by ChewyMar 21, 2019
The Natural Flavors in pet food is a proprietary blend derived from main protein source of the food. This Canidae doesn't preserve their dry pet foods using substances like ethoxyquin, BHA, BHT, or propylene glycol. Instead, they use mixed tocopherols (a source of vitamin E). They leave out substances like MSG, sugar, and high fructose corn syrup to artificially flavor their foods.

Is the fish wild-caught or farm raised?
Answer by ChewyDec 04, 2021
The salmon is both wild caught in the Pacific and Pacific North West, as well as farm raised.

My 3 cats won't eat it

I have 3 cats and none of them will eat it. I tried it because they love this brand's wet food, but they HATE this. People say cats will eat what's available if they're hungry enough but with this available for a few days one chose to break into random inedible boxes in our pantry, another literally ate grass over this, and the third moved himself next door with the nice neighbors

Canidae Cat Food

Now that Mr Blue has changed to Canidae grain free cat food he has hardly vomited his food.

They hate it

Our newly adopted kitten itches a lot so I ordered this food to see if it could be allergy related. We have four cats and none of them will touch it. I mixed it with their old food and they ate some but when I switched to this food completely they won't eat it at all. The bowls were still completely full after almost two full days and usually they empty the bowls every other day. They came running as soon as I switched the bowls back to their old food.

Cat barely eats it

I thought my cat lost taste for dry food until I went back to the sensitive digestion formula made by a different brand that we used before. Turns out it was just this food. This small bag still half full after over a year.

Don't bother they won't like it...

Trying different no grain salmon based dry foods for our two cats, one with a sensitive stomach, and after several days they still won't eat this product, even when moistened. That's pretty bad. I am seeking a refund. Don't waste your money, try another brand. Yeeesch!

Cat items purchased.

Haven't tried either of these products yet. Therefore I can not rate or recommend them. I'm sure they will both be of superior quality, as are all of your products.

Not Chewy’s Fault

I just opened a bag of the Canidae Pure Salmon Recipe cat food and most of the food was the normal small round balls but there was some big flat pieces in the food as well. It’s usually a good food and it’s not Chewy’s fault but I think that Canidae has a quality control issue.

Possible recipe change?

I’ve purchased this for my one cat numerous times but it’s been a while, I always purchased this flavor so I’m not sure if the recipe changed but my cat will not touch it. This isn’t chewys fault but I mention it in case you have a picky eater as well to research if they have.
