Transition Instructions

We have found that the smoothest transition from one dog food to another is to mix the foods together. When changing to CANIDAE some dogs may do better by making a gradual transition over 7 - 10 days. Start with 25% of the new food mixed with 75% of the previous diet and gradually increase the new while decreasing the previous until the transition is complete

  • High quality, not as pricey

    By on

    This formulation provides high quality meat-based ingredients for my 8 yr. old mixed breed dog. Her skin is not dry, her coat is glossy and strangers think she is much younger than her age because she is kept to a healthy weight with this Platinum formula. So glad Chewie offers it! We live in our travel trailer and I am always able to have it delivered right to me no matter where we are traveling.

  • Great product without the calories

    By on

    I had my dogs on th Canidae multi protein all stage food before this, and loved it. But they are less active primarily indoors dogs, and with it being winter, they are even more so. I was happy when I found this as it is ideal for less active. Still has the same great ingredients, my dogs love it and eat it no problem.

  • Thumbs up!

    By on

    Recently started this food with my aging, arthritic, finicky dog. So far so good! She usually turns her nose up to any food she's ever offered, so the fact that she gobbles this food up means it must be a winner!!

  • Vet says my I need to loose 3 pounds

    By on

    Just switched from Blue Buffalo Wilderness, small breed healthy weight chicken. Heard rumors about lead poisoning and didn't want to take a chance. So far I like it enough, and my pugish figure is more defined - what can I say, I'm a mass of wrinkles. And my mom likes it because my poops aren't as large. 2 paws up.

    All four of our Goldens, from an eight month old puppy named Luke Skywalker to our senior eight year old named Indiana Jones with Captain Kirk in between rely upon Canidae All Life Stages dog food but our sweet five year old girl Tiger Lilly loves her food so she is on Canidae Platinum Formula as a weight management food. It has helped keep her healthy while helping her stay trim.

  • Great product

    By on

    I always have required the best for my dog and Canidae is the best. A while back there was a problem with Canidae products and I couldn't find a supplier. I had to switch brands until Canidae fixed their problem and came back on the market. Canidae is far superior to the other brands that use 'fillers'. Read the labels! Thanks for a great product.
