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.

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%.

What is the target ph of this food?
Answer by ChewyJan 20, 2020
CANIDAE do not measure the pH of kibble itself. They do not add any pH modifying ingredients to their canine formulas.

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.

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.

Grainy texture

I am transitioning a recently adopted, small breed dog from kibble to raw. This was my first commercially marketed "raw coated" food. and it is odd. the texture was strange and he wasn't interested in it on its own. I had to always mix it with something. I bought two bags of the same brand but different flavor... and while he is eating it; we will not repurchase or recommend.

I chose to try this for my finicky little dog

Glad I only purchased a small bag, he wouldn’t touch it.

Love love love but pricey

My rescues loved this kibble. My dogs loved & so did the cats. Kibble is the smallest in any dry food I purchased in the past which is awesome for small dogs not weighing over 15 or 20#'s.

Has stopped our Morkies from constantly scratching...Game Changer

Because our dogs seemed to have an allergy to their current food, we were looking for a limited ingredient, fish based quality dog food for our 8-10lb morkies. We landed on this one. Since this is grain free I did a bit of research for the heart thing and there was a lot of consensus that the heart issue seems to stem for the lack of taurine, and Canidae seems to add the appropriate amino acids back into their grain free food to take away this concern. Long story short...we are very happy! They love the food, it has taken care of the constant scratching, we love the small kibble (our 12 year old has no teeth), and it's an affordable price...especially with the autoship.
