Questions & Answers

14 Customer Questions

The bag I just received contains taurine (different from product shown). Is this a new version? How much taurine is in the product?
Answer by ChewyJul 05, 2019
The taurine content for this formula is approximately 0.40% on an as fed basis.

Are these kibbles made of wild caught fish? Thank you !
Answer by ChewyMay 02, 2019
The salmon in this food is sustainably harvested in the Pacific Northwest.

Does the raw coated dry food need to be refrigerated?
Answer by ChewyApr 14, 2021
This food does not need to be refrigerated. An unopened bag of food will last until the expiration date stamped on the bag. Ideally, dry food and treats should be consumed within 6-8 weeks of opening the bag. Exposure to air, light, hot temperatures and humidity speeds up the rate at which foods degrade. To limit these effects, keep dry foods in their original packaging and store in a cool, dry location.

What is the phosphorus content? Thank you!
Answer by ChewyJun 29, 2020
The phosphorus in CANIDAE Grain-Free PURE Petite Salmon Formula Small Breed Limited Ingredient Diet Freeze-Dried Raw Coated Dry Dog Food on an as fed basis is approximately 1.08%.

Dog Loves this

My small dog absolutely devours this food, its been our go to food for a while now. tried switching but he refused to eat it and we went back to this. the small pieces are perfect for dogs under 30 lbs and would also be perfect for dogs with few teeth. Canidae has always been an excellent company to order from and is always communicative. would recommend their brand to everyone. If you're unsure about buying, reach out and ask for samples, they are always good about sending coupons or samples.

Canidae Grain-Free Salmon

Since feeding this to our little Westie, who has sensitivities and allergies, her itchiness has subsided considerably. It took her a few days to adjust to this formula, but now she gulps it down with no problem. And her bowel movements have become more frequent and regular. Bravo, Canidae!

Pulverized Food

My dog absolutely loves this food so its the only food I feed her. I have two of the same size vacuum sealed containers that I pour her food into when I open the bag. These two containers will not hold the whole bag of food so I have a third smaller container for the rest. I received my last order about a week ago and when I opened the bag and poured it into the containers, it didn't come close to filling both large containers and the amount of crushed to tiny crumbs pieces was ridiculous! Not Happy Jeffrey Koepp

Doesnt like salmon flavor

First, my shihtzu is picky! I dont think it's the food (he is regularly on this same food..but chicken flavor) I buy him liver sprinkles to entice him, and use parmesan and shredded cheese as other toppers too. I thought he might enjoy it because seriously he acts more like a cat, and my outdoor cat is more like a dog! Idk if 2 stars was right to give, it is based entirely on his pickiness (1 star). 2nd star is guilt of shaming this product. He apparently is not a fan of salmon. (He "ate" it (mixed w his chicken flavor) 1st day, but wouldn't touch it again after that.

This review is not on Chewy as they are an awesome pet supply company. The dog food Canidae pure however has misleading ingredients on the bag. Our dogs both have a poultry allergy basically anything with feathers our vet told us. We had them on another brand however my one shih tzu is a picky eater so we switched his food and this food did not state any poultry in it as grain free salmon dog food. Be aware that if ingredients state meat. This can change according to what is cheapest at time also natural flavors ths is typically meat bullion or any type of meat and vegetable mix which is mainly chicken. So our dog suffered severe skin reactions and has a yeast infection. So read the ingredients not just the front but all ingredients so nobody else's dogs have this happening to them

Healing food

My 10 month old puppy (5 lbs) has digestive issues and we tried everything to even making his food to help him. I started him on the puppy formula and have slowly changed him to the adult formula because his is doing so good on it. I have even changed my 3 year old (11lbs) dog to it and she loves it.

They will not touch it.

I bought this food as a new friend told me that her little poodles loved it. My miniature poodle and my peke-a-poo will not eat any of it. They are used to eating Taste of the Wild, Appalachian Valley small breed. I would like to return this bag. Is it possible?

It really is only for small breeds

I really wanted this food to work. My dog is super picky but enjoys salmon so I figured it's a good price for good ingredients. My dog is on the upper end of small breeds at 25 pounds but I assumed it would be fine since they have that weight listed. He was interested in the smell but the pieces were just too small for him to eat comfortably. If you have a very small dog, the size might be a benefit but for most dogs I don't recommend it.
