Canidae Grain-Free PURE Elements with Lamb Dry Dog Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 159.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from He loves it! My dog is an extremely picky eater, he spits out stuff he doesn't like, and for well over a year I was mixing wet and human food in with his other dry food to entice him to eat. Someone gave me a bag of this food to try and he started eating it dry AND stopped scratching constantly. So I realized he was allergic to the previous food and then tried other grain-free options because none of the stores near me carried this particular type and brand of Canidae, but I was again having to mix it with stuff. So I broke down and just ordered the Canidae and he's a happy boy and I'm a happy mom because I'm actually saving money because I'm no longer buying wet food, vitamins, and antihistamines (plus other oils, lotions, and potions trying to control the itch). He's back to eating dry food and no longer drives me crazy with the scratching!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My experience with this food I have an active 9-year-old border collie german shepherd. For a few years I fed him Nutro Lamb and Rice dry food, but he was a little bit too thin all the time, and once in a while he would have a short period where he vomited bile but the vet couldn't find anything wrong. I changed to Canidae a couple of years ago and he build muscle tone and a very shiny coat, never vomits bile anymore. His stool is a perfect color and consistency and he never has diarrhea. I just learned how good this food actually is, though, when I had to travel for a month and left my dog with my sister. He ate a different food there, and when I got him back he had lost muscle, seemed stiff and showing his age, and he was slightly constipated. A week back on Canidae and he was spry again and had gained back the muscle and the perfect poop consistency. This is the best dry dog food there is, and my perfectly healthy dog is proof.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best kibble we've tried My two dogs have at least four different food allergies between them, and it's been a struggle finding a kibble that will work. So far this is the best brand of dry food we've tried, and both my dogs love it. It's also much more affordable than other pricey allergy-specific foods. I will keep buying this brand, and in the future I am also planning on adding some wet food as a mixer as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good results thus far I was feeding my German Shepherds Orijen "Regional Red" over $1200. worth before I realized I had to switch foods. Xandor my 5 year old male began to scratch himself a lot and his eyes discharged. Our 15 month old female all through this period had soft stools and diarrhea. So, I switched them to Canidae Grain-Free Pure Elements with Lamb dry dog food. I've only been through one large bag so far, just opened up the 2nd bag today. Made the switch relatively quick with no upsets or diarrhea. No negative results. Both dogs doing well. So far so good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product and service! My boys love Candice, and it's something I feel good giving them. I was purchasing this food from a store here in town but would always wait until last minute to buy and would find myself going out last minute at night to purchase food so my boys would have breakfast. When a friend told me about Chewy.com I was so excited to get an awsome deal on the food, home delivery, and the fact that they auto ship so that I it's always here before they run out. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I recently took in a foster senior poodle with significant allergies to many protein sources, limiting my options. I decided to give this a try and it seems to be doing rhe trick! He eats the kibble with gusto and the size is perfect for his small mouth. And so far he has not had any reactions to the protein.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New food for my girl My dog only gets dry food, her bowl is always kept full. She didn't like the food at first, but now she is eating it. The kibble is small, but that's okay. I like that the food is good quality.
